The benefits of hypnosis

•July 23, 2008 • 1 Comment

The benefits of hypnosis can be applied to any area of life. In your personal life you might want to quit smoking, start exercising or learn to relax after work, all those noble goals you’ve set for yourself every New Year. Career building is another major category. Many use hypnosis to overcome phobias like shyness, fear of public speaking or to help manage time better and be better organized. Then there are recreational pursuits like practicing on your swing in golf or tennis perhaps. Finally, hypnosis is often effective in working out psychological or emotional problems without the need for invasive treatments (the use of drugs). In fact, hypnosis can be used for any aspect of a person’s life where behavioral or attitudinal change is desired. One of the most exciting benefits of hypnosis is how it can give you influence over others. “Speed seduction,” a very powerful technique popularized over the 10 years is only the tip of the ice berg. By putting others in semi-hypnotic states, you can exact amazing results. Full hypnotic trances with willing subjects will astound you!

Changing your perspective

•July 23, 2008 • Leave a Comment

As far as we know hypnosis works by reframing the way the brain experiences events whether they are internal events like memories or thoughts or external ones, like conversations with other people. Reframing is another way of saying a change of perspective usually about how you see yourself and ideas or attitudes you may possess about yourself and the world. A man, for example, prepares intensely for a job interview. On the day of the interview, he performs well; he is inquisitive, enthusiastic, and knowledgeable but still does not get the job. He then feels that the fact that he wasn’t hired points to a failing in him. However, let’s say that his expert knowledge put his prospective employers ill at ease, that the job was low paying or that the work environment was unpleasant. Viewing things from this perspective, he might consider himself fortunate to not have been chosen. When you tell yourself a story from a positive point of view instead of a negative one, you change your attitude towards the story itself by using words. In hypnosis one reframes (usually with the help of a practitioner) attitudes or beliefs about oneself so that the next job interview is a pleasant experience guaranteed to find the best fit of your unique skills with the best work environment instead of an onerous social ritual designed to point out your short comings. You can use this powerful tool, the reframing of events, on yourself and on others. There are always two sides to every story. Using reframing in hypnosis allows you to turn a negative understanding to a positive understanding, to tell the second story and implant it in your mind, or the mind of others.

The Hypnotic Trance

•July 23, 2008 • Leave a Comment

The Society of Psychological Hypnosis, a division of the American Psychological Association, defines hypnosis as “a procedure during which a health professional or researcher suggests that a client, patient, or subject experience changes in sensations, perceptions, thoughts, or behavior. The hypnotic context is generally established by an induction procedure. Although there are many different hypnotic inductions, most include suggestions for relaxation, calmness, and well-being.”

This rather clinical, boring description is actually quite exciting when you unpack it. Imagine the power to change what someone thinks or how they behave? Almost anyone is excited by the idea of hypnosis. It sounds fun – and once they are interested in playing along, they have given you a very unusual opportunity: a willingness to let you influence them: their sensations, perceptions, thoughts or behavior.

Hypnosis begins with an induction procedure where a subject is lulled into a trance, a state of heightened mental alertness. The subject limits all physical movement and becomes especially susceptible to suggestion. This is accomplished by gradually stripping the subject of the use of their senses. First, the sense of sight is lost as the subject is requested to close their eyes. Then the body is commanded to rest immobile; after a little while it is not uncommon for the subject to lose complete awareness of their body. While most of the senses are neutralized throughout the process, the sense of hearing actually is accentuated. A hypnotized subject can often hear distant sounds that they would not be able to hear in the normal waking state, assuming the subject is able to hear the practitioner’s suggestions. Often, subjects, waking from hypnosis do not believe they have been in a trance at all because the entire time they were able to hear the hypnotist’s voice clearly.

Some Common Misconceptions

•July 23, 2008 • Leave a Comment
  1. Hypnosis Can Cure Anything. Hypnosis is not a magic cure. It can help to create certain behaviours, but it is only a tool. Like any tool, it must be used properly to achieve the desired result. Having said that, it is perhaps one of the most under utilized and powerful such tools readily available to almost anyone.
  2. Hypnosis is Mysterious. Hypnosis seems mysterious, but it is actually a series of established psychological techniques that anybody can learn. For the sake of show, many hypnotists claim to have special powers. There is in fact there is nothing supernatural or magic about it. Anyone can learn to do it. Some people will be better than others. Like anything, it takes practice.
  3. People who are hypnotised can be made to act against their will. The subject of “will” and hypnotism might better be understood by comparing it to alcohol. Many people are self-conscious and shy until loosened up with alcohol. If you want to do something but are inhibited, alcohol can help. Hypnotism is quite similar. Laboratory experiments have shown that a subject will comply only with suggestions that conform to their moral and value systems. While it is true highly hypnotizable individuals may under rare circumstances be programmed to commit actions ‘against one’s will’, this applies to a small population (around 5% to 10% of the general population) and would still require a very skilled but unethical practitioner while the subject’s will power has been compromised due to strenuous conditions such as starvation or sleep deprivation. In a word, the chance of such a thing even being possible is remote in the extreme, and you should feel comfortable in the control and participation you will have throughout the entire process.
  4. A subject can enter a hypnotic trance and not wake up. Definitely not true. There is no danger of never waking up from a hypnotic trance. A subject can wake up whenever they want to. The subject is aware that they are being hypnotized at all times. Even in a deep trance the subject is still aware and would respond in the event of an emergency.
  5. Hypnosis is dangerous! Only specially trained doctors should ever be allowed to hypnotise anyone. I have heard of no one ever dying because of hypnosis. While it is advisable to seek an experienced hypnotherapist, especially if the hypnosis is being used primarily to treat deep rooted emotional problems, it is quite safe to use hypnosis on yourself or others.
  6. Hypnosis will cause you to reveal hidden secrets. Hypnosis is not a truth serum; one can lie just as easily in a trance as in a normal state. While under hypnosis you know perfectly well what you are doing and saying.
  7. Only 30 per cent of the population can be hypnotised. One group of hypnotists devised the idea of hypnotisability scales. They used the same method of induction for all tested and the result was that 30% were hypnotized based on a rigid criteria of ‘trance behaviour’. Given the narrowness of the study both in its method as well as in its definition, it seems to me that such a statistic is very misleading.
  8. Only simple-minded people can be hypnotized. While the precise mechanisms behind why hypnosis works is as yet unknown and its definition may still be a matter of debate among specialists, the essence of hypnosis can be characterized as an intense concentration on one small thing to the exclusion of everything else. The capacity to become hypnotized is called hypnotisability and varies from person to person. There is no established link between hypnotisability and intelligence, and there is no foundation to the cliché that ‘weak minds’ are more susceptible to hypnosis than ‘strong minds’ (whatever this means). In fact, if anything, the contrary is more likely to be the case. Subjects with heightened abilities to focus or who possess single-mindedness are more likely to profit from hypnosis than less concentrated subjects. This is because, contrary to popular belief, the vast majority of hypnosis is initiated on the behest and enthusiastic participation of the subject to accomplish goals defined by the subject for reasons of self-improvement. Thus, his or her powers of concentration contribute positively to the outcome of hypnotic sessions. This being said, the aptitude for hypnotic states exists in and of itself and means nothing more than this.

What is Hypnotism and How Can it Help Me?

•July 23, 2008 • Leave a Comment

Even though the medical community has known of hypnotism since the mid-eighteenth-century, there is still no consensus as to what actually happens in the brain during a session of hypnosis. We do know what Hypnosis is not.

  • Hypnosis is not sleep. During sleep the body often moves while the hypnotized subject is quite still; the sleeping subject usually has no ability to concentrate while the hypnotized subject is acutely concentrated; EEG studies show little alpha activity in the sleeping subject and high alpha activity (and therefore alertness) in hypnotized subjects. The hypnotized subject hears everything that is happening around him or her even if he or she is primarily concentrating on the hypnotist’s voice.
  • Hypnosis is not a form of meditation. Whereas the object of meditation is to achieve a restful meditative state, hypnosis first attains a meditative state to then introduce behaviour-altering suggestions.
  • Hypnosis is not relaxation. While many practitioners believe that hypnosis is aided by a peaceful, quiet environment and relaxed subject, these are not prerequisites of hypnosis.
  • Hypnosis is not psychotherapy. While hypnosis has been known to be used as a tool of psychiatrists, psychoanalysts and other councillors and mental health practitioners, hypnosis is not in and of itself therapy.
