Fear of Hypnosis

January 25, 2010 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Learn Self-Hypnosis · Comment 

fear-of-hypnosisFear of hypnosis takes different forms, but basically it is the fear of revealing one’s true feelings. An employee, for instance, at a gathering which included the employer he dislikes, would never volunteer as a subject for hypnosis if the occasion arose. He would be afraid he would do or say something which might endanger his position. Hypnosis for him would be “dangerous” because he would be afraid to take the chance.

The truth is, however, Read more

Remove Symptoms with Hypnosis

January 18, 2010 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Learn Self-Hypnosis · Comment 

symptom-removalOne objection to hypnosis is that the results are temporary as well as symptomatic. It is well to remember that most medical therapy is specifically directed to symptom removal.

How permanent is most medical treatment? Once you couple hetero-hypnosis with self-hypnosis, you afford the patient the opportunity of utilizing suggestions for his own benefit any time they are needed. This, of course, can make symptom relief permanent.

As an example, I would see no harm in teaching a patient self-hypnosis for symptomatic relief from a problem of insomnia. It would certainly be better than physically depressing the higher brain centers with sleeping pills to produce unconsciousness every night.

Dangers of Hypnosis

January 11, 2010 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Learn Self-Hypnosis · Comment 

dangers-of-hypnosisOne of the objections that you hear to hypnosis is that it can be dangerous in the hands of those not trained in the psychodynamics of human behavior. Inasmuch as psychiatrists and clinical psychologists are the only ones who are thoroughly trained in the analysis of human behavior, this objection, if valid, could limit hypnosis to a comparative handful of therapists.

Fortunately, it is not valid. This was proved several years ago when the “Bridey Murphy” craze gripped the country. Despite the fact that thousands of amateur hypnotists were practicing hypnosis, little or no harm resulted. I have personally instructed several thousand medical and non-medical individuals and have yet to hear of a single case where a crisis was precipitated or anything of a dangerous or detrimental nature occurred as a result of hypnosis. I have also taught several thousand persons self-hypnosis and can report the same findings.

Resisting the Hypnosis Trance

January 4, 2010 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Learn Self-Hypnosis · Comment 

resist-hypnosisA problem in hypnotizing a subject may exist even though the person consciously wishes to be hypnotized. Unconsciously, there may be a poor interrelationship with the hypnotist which can create an unfavorable climate for hypnosis. When this is the case, the subject doesn’t respond until such time that he relates well to the hypnotist. Even the most calculated procedures will fail until a positive transference relationship is established.

I am sure that you sometimes have said, “For some reason I don’t like that person.” If pressed for an answer, you’ll usually reply, “I can’t explain it, but I just have a feeling about him.” Actually, your subconscious reactions are influencing your thinking and you “feel” a certain way. The same thing takes place in business transactions. You either like or dislike the proposition presented to you. You may say, “I have a certain feeling about this deal.” You may not be conscious of the reasons, but your subconscious has reacted automatically because of previous experience along similar lines.

Hypnosis and Mind Control

December 28, 2009 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Learn Self-Hypnosis · Comment 

mind-controlA popular opinion about hypnosis is that the subject surrenders his will to the hypnotist in the process of being hypnotized. Furthermore, many believe that once the subject is hypnotized, the hypnotist has complete control of the subject and the subject is powerless to resist suggestion.

Both beliefs are erroneous. I believe the first misconception comes from seeing techniques where the hypnotist requests the subject to look into his eyes.

Self-hypnosis – The Modern Approach to Successful Weight Loss

August 18, 2008 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Weight Loss · Comment 

The Hypnotic Diet
(Triple CD)

A revolutionary new approach to weight loss.

A person can definitely reduce to his goal-weight through techniques of self-hypnosis. It is a scientific aid and has increasing acceptance and use by physicians. Because so many people are plagued by doubts about the highly advertised miracle diets, self-suggestion is gaining greater recognition as a more desirable means of developing new lifelong sensible eating habits and maintaining weight-control.

Excessive eating is an acquired habit. To break any habit successfully, you must understand how the habit developed, and why it exists and persists.

Habits can be disciplined. They can be controlled or broken by the power of self-suggestion. All habit-breaking requires patience, stick-to-it-iveness and determination. Read more

Stop Smoking with Hypnosis

August 17, 2008 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Stop Smoking · Comment 

Stop SmokingThe health effects of smoking are well-known: everything from chronic bronchitis and emphysema to heart disease, stroke and lung cancer. This means that the professional hypnotist is besieged with men and women who wish to curtail or quit smoking.

Quitting smoking is easier said than done because smoking is a strong, conditioned reflex and cannot (except in rare instances) be accomplished by the will alone. The best way to stop smoking is to make it an impossibility, and that is exactly what you do when you use hypnosis to stop smoking. Read more

What is Hypnosis and How Does it Work?

August 16, 2008 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Self-Improvement · Comment 

Hypnosis is made possible because all human beings are suggestible.

SUGGESTION is the key to hypnotism.

We are all susceptible to being influenced by other persons in varying degrees. Consequently, hypnotic phenomena can be demonstrated in practically everyone. In some instances the person has to be conditioned to techniques of hypnosis and self-hypnosis. Everyone is influenced by his own thinking. It is this autosuggestible component in all of us that also makes self-hypnosis possible.

Because of everyone’s susceptibility to suggestion, Emile Coue, the French psychologist, gained wide recognition and popularity as a result of his “Day by day in every way—I am feeling better and better” approach to problems. Read more
