The Myths About Hypnosis

(And What The Truth Really Is!)

MYTH #1: You lose control...

In fact, because you are in a relaxed state,
your mind is free of that 24 hour a day "chatter",
and you are, therefore, in more control of your thoughts.

------------------------------------------------------------

MYTH #2: Morals, Beliefs and Values are compromised...

In a hypnotic trance you can not be made
to do anything against your will.

------------------------------------------------------------

MYTH #3: You Go To Sleep...

In fact, you will hear and remember everything
that I say.

------------------------------------------------------------

MYTH #4: A Hypnotherapist can make you do anything...

A Hypnotherapist can not make you do anything
against your ethics, values, or beliefs.

------------------------------------------------------------

MYTH #5 You will not come out of trance...

Never ever happens. At most, you will
move into a natural sleep and wake up
feeling energized and refreshed.

------------------------------------------------------------

MYTH #6: Only mentally weak or sick people are hypnotizable...

In fact, the opposite is true. The capacity
to be hypnotized is a statement of relative
mental health.

------------------------------------------------------------

MYTH #7: Women are more hypnotizable than men...

The fact is that the sexes are the same
in their trance capacity.

------------------------------------------------------------

MYTH #8: Symptom removal means a new symptom...

Any number of troubling symptoms, from skin
rash to fear of animals, can be successfully
treated with the help of hypnosis without the
appearance of a substitute symptom.

Many symptoms are actually psychological
fossils: remnants of earlier emotional times
that linger on as habits.

------------------------------------------------------------
MYTH #9: Hypnosis is dangerous...

In fact, there is nothing dangerous
about hypnosis. If there were a danger,
we would have to tell ourselves not
to slip into any other state of
consciousness: not to daydream, not
to concentrate deeply, and not to
become totally absorbed in things
of compelling interest.

------------------------------------------------------------
MYTH #10: The hypnotist must be charismatic, unique or weird...

On the contrary, a flamboyant or
eccentric personality might well
disturb the trusting atmosphere that
serves to bring out a person's trance talent.
