Hypnosis Myths Exposed

Over the years this form, hypnosis, of therapy and alternative
medicine has been associated with hundreds of different actions and
experiences, many of them false. Many people have believed hypnosis to
be nothing more than a stage act meant for entertainment and others have
believed it to be a superstitious act meant to keep spirits at bay. It
is a shame just how many myths have been associated with hypnosis
because today many people do not know what to believe. The truth about
hypnosis is that it is in fact one of the greatest tools we have today
to access our subconscious mind and positively change the way we think.
The first and most prominent myth is that all forms of hypnosis are the
same and work the same; this is incredibly false and when you take the
time to think through this statement, it is easy to see why. First,
there are many forms of hypnosis and different techniques which can be
used to try and reach the subconscious levels of our minds. The most
common and traditional form of hypnosis is the "you are getting sleepy"
technique we have all seen in stage shows and on TV throughout the
years. This is not as effective as the new and more advanced level of
communication techniques used today to hypnotize someone.
Subliminal messages are the same as hypnosis and they are just as
effective. This is a statement many people have come to believe over the
years and this too is false. Subliminal messaging is perceived to be
successful through the many minds that undergo these studies but there
is no real proof this is true. As well, this is a completely different
form of therapy that has nothing to do with hypnosis and how hypnosis
Everyone has heard the phrase, "some people cannot be hypnotized" before
and millions of people believe this to be true. The truth about this
statement is not that you cannot be hypnotized that maybe you are more
difficult than another person. The people that are being referred to in
this phrase are those with a lower IQ or the inability to concentrate
for long periods of time on anything and this can make the hypnosis
process more complicated for the hypnotist you are working with, but you
are not impossible.
For centuries people have believed that hypnosis is bad because it makes
you lose control and you don't know what you are doing while you are in
this trance. This is one of the main reasons people are afraid of
hypnosis today and this myth needs to be clarified right now. Anyone who
has seen a hypnosis stage show may believe this to be true, but this is
not hypnosis is it pure entertainment. During a real session of hypnosis
you are relaxed and calm and you are able to get up and walk away at any
time if you choose. You have made the conscious effort to provide your
full attention to the hypnotist and there is no type of control loss
within this process.
Now you may have a better understanding as to what hypnosis really is
and what you have been led to believe over the years through the common
misrepresentation of this therapy. With these new facts and theories
within your mind you may be interested in learning the principles of
hypnosis for your own benefits in life. Check out
