(the facts and myths of hypnosis and how it will help you in life)
1. You become completely powerless and will do anything the hypnotist tells you to.
This is utter rubbish as your mind won’t allow you to do something harmful to yourself just because someone told you so. This is one of the greatest lies brought about through TV and movies. If this were true, being a hypnotist would be the most sought after profession in the world!
2. Hypnotists have special powers.
I wish this were true, but alas, hypnotists are as normal, boring and human as the rest of us! (too much TV and movie hype again unfortunately)
3. You can get stuck in hypnosis and remain in that hypnotic state forever.
More tall tales from Hollywood! Where do they get such ideas! And what makes us believe it?
The Truth about Hypnosis
1. Hypnosis can help treat a variety of ailments and disease, e.g., Fibromyalgia (muscle and tissue pain), Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Hypertension, Tinnitus (ringing in the ear), Pain Relief, Anxiety and Panic disorders, Asthma, Insomnia, Cancer, AIDS, Hepatitis C, and Diabetes.
Who says so? The US National Library of Medicine (NLM) in Maryland – that’s who! By the way, the NLM is the world’s largest medical library and there are over 10000 archived research findings on the benefits of hypnosis. So who are we to argue with such overwhelming proof!
2. Hypnosis is commonly used to treat addictions to drugs, alcohol, pills, food, fear of flying, fear of snakes, fear of anything really! Again, all this is medically documented.
3. Hypnosis helps you empower yourself through the use of self-hypnosis.
Self-hypnosis is nothing more than reciting a hypnotic script to yourself, or listening to an audio recording which has powerful suggestions and commands built in to help you. This is similar to self-talk, e.g., when we scream at ourselves silently in our heads to make something happen. When we lengthen this type of self-talk with more focus, it’s self-hypnosis, and by this definition alone, most of us have self-hypnotized ourselves quite a few times in our lives!
4. Hypnosis is absolutely safe, has no side effects, and is useful in everyday life for a variety of issues we have to deal with
Says who? Medical associations like the American Psychological Association, British Medical Association, American Dental Association, and the American Medical Association to name but a few.
So if you’re looking to enhance happiness, focus, motivation, learning and memory skills for work, school and sports, or if you’re in advertising, sales, professional or amateur sports, a religious or political leader, a salespeople, a motivational speaker, parent, student, teacher, or manager – hypnosis is for you!
