More hypnosis and NLP secrets…
Myth 1 – someone will be in control of you in hypnosis
Myth 2 – you will get your mind reprogrammed
Myth 3 – you will go ‘under’
There are so many misconceptions about hypnosis. In fact people often attend my other trainings and then say ‘but I don’t want to do any of that hypnosis stuff…’. When I ask them about it, it’s always because of misconceptions about what it’s all about. In fact, when I clarify the misconceptions, those initially reluctant students usually turn out to be the ones who can’t stop talking about how great hypnosis is after they’ve attended the training!
Most people think they know what hypnosis is because of what they’ve seen on tv or read about in books. Sure, with films like the Manchurian candidate, that’s enough to put a lot of people into a paranoid state about having their minds ‘reprogrammed’
But that couldn’t be further from what hypnosis is all about.
Here are some truths about hypnosis
Truth 1 – you have greater self control in hypnosis
Truth 2 – you will only accept positive suggestions that are acceptable to you
Truth 3 – there’s nothing to go ‘under’ and you won’t be asleep! In fact just for a moment, close your eyes, slow down your breathing and let your body relax. That’s all that’s involved – you’ve done hypnosis now!
In fact in hypnosis you learn greater self control. You increase your internal self awareness to an amazing level. In fact, if you’ve done NLP, you’ll find things work even better. In hypnosis you can even influence your breathing, heart rate and even blood flow
And the truth is that most hypnotherapy being taught today isn’t really hypnosis. You can’t learn hypnosis properly on a day or less as part of an NLP course or certainly not from home study courses! Unfortunately it’s frequently being taught like this now and people get the wrong idea about what it’s all about! You really need to study hypnotherapy on it’s own to get the full value.
In hypnosis you won’t reveal secrets you don’t want to and you will only accept suggestions that are acceptable with your beliefs and values, or you’ll come straight back to the room. And it’s really not like stage shows where people do silly things – it’s a pleasant and relaxing experience where you are usually aware of everything that’s going on to an even greater level.
But in hypnosis you can do some great stuff. For example, one student whose young baby kept him awake all night would do self hypnosis to give him the equivalent of several hours sleep in 10 minutes and he’d feel great for the rest of the day.
You could experience new self confidence and let go of tension. You could even manage pain (if you have any).
