FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?


Hypnosis is a natural and commonly occurring state of mind. It is a state of mind that we humans have experienced often, most of us go into this state many times during the day, even those who think they can't be hypnotized, experience the hypnotic trance state at least three times a day. In this common state of mind known as hypnosis, our minds can become more powerfully focused. While in this state we can condition our minds to respond in a specific way. This can be extremely beneficial as it allows us to regain control over our seemingly uncontrollable responses. And since hypnosis also enables us to use more of our abilities, learning self-hypnosis is the preeminent act of self-control. We have all experienced trance many times, but we just haven't identified it as hypnosis yet.   

 

Examples of trances in everyday experiences are: when we become so involved in a story, either reading a book, or watching a movie, that we don't recognize the things happening around us. We get lost in our own thoughts, sometimes not knowing what people are saying to us. While in this altered state, we were able to have extreme focus, and we might have responded in a physical or emotional way. Like welling up with feeling during a particularly sad part in a move, or jumping out of our seat during a scary passage. Now none of those things we were reading about or watching on TV or in the theatre were actually happening to us, but our body and mind responded as if they actually were happening to us. That is the hypnotic trance state.  One of the more commonly known forms of Hypnosis is Highway Hypnosis where you drive to a destination and don’t remember the journey.

 

WHO IS  IN CONTROL?


You are always in control while you experience hypnosis. The true power of hypnosis is in the power of your mind. You become more in touch with your own senses. Your five senses become heightened. When you are in hypnosis you are fully awake and aware and have the ability to choose to accept or reject suggestions given to you by anyone, including the hypnotist. You can only change what you want to change. You are in control.  That is why it is important that you use hypnosis for the things that you personally want to accomplish and not for what someone else wants for you to accomplish. It’s about making the positive changes YOU want in your life.

 

DOES A PERSON BECOME UNCONSCIOUS OR GO TO SLEEP?


No, you are not unconscious nor are you asleep. Hypnosis is a state of altered consciousness.  A common myth is that hypnosis will force you to reveal secrets that you want to keep to yourself. This is not true. You are always in control.  You will never reveal anything that you do’t want to.

You will also be awake and aware during the whole process. You will hear everything that the hypnotist says and what is going on around you. You will also remember most if not all that you experienced while in trance. And similar to a conference or meeting that you attended, you might only remember those thngs that you felt were the most important to you. Ultimately you are always in control.
