OVER the years, hypnosis has picked up all sorts of weird associations from stage hypnotists, the media and superstition. This is a great shame because in reality, hypnosis is your single most effective tool for change. Hypnosis is your birthright, and you should know how to use it so it doesn't use you. Here we dispel the biggest hypnosis misunderstandings.
Hypnosis Fallacy #1) All hypnosis is the same.
As with anything, hypnosis can be good, bad or indifferent. The most common is old-style authoritarian hypnosis of the type "You are getting sleepy, you are feeling confident". Unsurprisingly, this sort of hypnosis doesn't work well with many people. Good hypnosis uses subtle psychological principles and advanced communication patterns.
It's like the difference between a football coach who thinks you'll perform best if he yells at you, compared with the more elegant style of a great leader who knows that to get the best from his people, he needs to understand motivation, to cajole, encourage and reward. Here at Hypnosis Downloads.com we offer hundreds of sessions using the very best type of hypnosis.
Hypnosis Fallacy #2) Some people can't be hypnotised
The only reason you can't be hypnotised is if you are incapable of paying attention due to extremely low I.Q. or brain damage. That's not to say that every hypnotist can hypnotise you however. The more flexible the hypnotist, the more effective he or she will be with the largest number of people.
Hypnosis Fallacy #3) Hypnosis is something weird that other people do to you
If you couldn't go into hypnosis, you wouldn't be able to sleep, to learn, or get nervous through 'negative self hypnosis'. (You know when you imagine things going wrong and it makes you feel anxious? Well that's self-hypnosis!) Hypnosis is simply a deliberate utilisation of Rapid Eye Movement (R.E.M.) sleep or the dream state. We're not giving people medication here so if it wasn't a natural ability, hypnosis wouldn't work!
Hypnosis Fallacy #4) You lose control in hypnosis
Crazy news stories, stage hypnotists and gossip have created the illusion that you lose control in hypnosis. In fact, when hypnotised, you are relaxed and focused and able to choose to get up and walk away at any time. You choose to give your attention to the hypnotist, and you can withdraw it at any time.
