- FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS -
I hope this feels like a conversation over a cup of tea— inspiring (and answering) your curiosity about hypnosis and how it works.
I’ll start by saying I’m a big fan of the Hypnobabies FAQ page. Their success stories incorporating hypnotherapy with pregnancy and child birth is a true inspiration and I share a similar philosophy: Hypnosis is a natural state of mind.
Below is an edited version, a collage of questions and ideas, inspired by their FAQ page. If you are new to hypnosis— welcome! I sincerely hope you find this helpful and clarifying; encouraging you to explore the life-changing benefits of hypnotherapy with me as your guide.
A few facts about hypnosis.
Hypnosis is actually a state in which you are neither asleep nor wide awake but somewhere pleasant in between.
It is a state of deep physical and mental relaxation in which you can focus your mind on what you want to obtain.
Hypnosis does not interfere with a person’s religious orientation. Hypnosis is a safe and easy way to direct the inner mind to focus exclusively on creating and achieving an outcome.
There is no going under. You are “in” hypnosis only when and how you want to be.
Hypnosis feels very natural…because it is.
All Hypnosis Is Self-Hypnosis.
You are always in control of your mind and your body while in hypnosis. At all times, you choose to enter hypnosis, you choose to remain in hypnosis, you choose to accept the suggestions and you choose to emerge from hypnosis.
Examples of everyday hypnotic states which you have already experienced naturally:
-Driving the car
-Riding in an elevator
-Watching TV, movies, computer screens or video games
-Being bored by another person
-Waking up and going to sleep
Because in hypnosis you access your subconscious, the suggestible more powerful part of your mind where real, lasting change takes place. You may have heard it said that we only use 10% of our brain; hypnosis is a way to get access to that other 90%. Especially in habit and pain control, this eliminates any internal battle that may occur.
What does hypnosis feel like?
Since hypnosis is a means of moving into a perfectly natural state of mind that all people actually experience several times in a day, it feels very “normal”. When a hypnotist or a hypnosis audio track guides you into hypnosis, they are not asking you to experience anything strange or that you haven’t experienced before.
Daydreaming, falling asleep and waking up, “zoning out” – these are all states of hypnosis and everyone experiences these differently. In guided hypnosis sessions, we all experience hypnosis differently as well. Some people feel light, some people feel heavy, and some people are hyper-aware of everything around them as they listen. Some people don’t “feel” or “experience” anything out of the ordinary while they are in hypnosis. You simply cannot gage your state of hypnosis by a feeling or an experience.
Will I remember everything that happens in hypnosis?
Yes, you will remember everything that happens in hypnosis if that is your desire. Occasionally a person might choose to selectively forget certain facts for a time and then bring them up later when they are more ready.
Will I do something against my will?
When you are hypnotized, you are aware of all suggestions given to you and you will not do anything against your moral or ethical principles (despite what you may have seen in stage hypnosis shows).
But I don’t think I can be hypnotized…
“Any person of normal intelligence can be hypnotized. All that is necessary is imagination and a willingness to cooperate. The best subject is a person who has a good reason for hypnosis and a strong motivation to accomplish a particular need or desire. The ability to be hypnotized is dependent upon the ability to relax and simply listen.” Robert De Silva, Cht
