The Truth About Hypnosis

New to hypnosis?

If you are new to Hypnosis or have just never tried it you may feel skeptical. You may be reserved or even slightly frightened by the subject. So, here are some key information about hypnosis, trance and its possible benefits.

Knowing so, you can make an informed decision as to whether you want to try it or not.

A mystical subject

Hypnosis can be a mystical subject. Many hypnotists shroud it in an almost metaphysical aura. This can add power to the process in many ways. However, there are many people who are not receiving the benefits of hypnosis.

Merely because they do not understand it and are fearful of its use. In this article I have outlined some basic fundamentals of the subject. After reading this you can make a more informed choice as to whether it is right for you or not.

An old tradition

Hypnosis is older than you can imagine. It has been used for thousands of years. Hypnosis, or more accurately trance, is a completely natural state of mind which you move in and out of every day.

It is, in effect, an altered state of consciousness. You are neither asleep nor are you completely conscious or wide awake. A common illustration of this can see in the simple act of watching a movie.

If you are enjoying the movie then, albeit only temporarily, your conscious mind stops processing your immediate surroundings as you immerse yourself in the world that you see on the screen.

If you didn’t enter into a light state of trance while watching, they would not give the pleasure they do. You must “lose yourself” in the characters. Believing them to be real people in order for the film and plot to be entertaining.

We all know how bad a film is when we just can’t make a connection with the characters. We just don’t find them convincing.  The movie loses its hypnotic power and no longer becomes entertaining!
