An article in Psychology Today several years ago stated, “Hypnosis is a genuine psychological phenomenon that has valid uses in clinical practice.” Many people are aware of stage hypnotism but confuse that with clinical hypnosis. The same article pointed out that “stage hypnotism is essentially a theatrical performance and has about as much in common with bona fide clinical hypnosis as many Hollywood movies have with real life.” In other words, there is a world of difference between a stage hypnosis show and getting genuine help from a certified hypnotherapist.
In addition, there is a lot of misunderstanding about hypnosis. Basically, when one is in hypnosis, he or she is in a state of highly focused attention, and is usually very relaxed and much more open to helpful suggestions given by the hypnotherapist. When in a hypnotic state, one is still in total control of oneself and would not do anything he or she would normally find objectionable. In addition, one cannot get stuck in a hypnotic state and can easily come out of a trance if uncomfortable.
Now, why might a person want to go through a hypnotic session? There are so many ways hypnosis can be of help that they cannot all be listed in this short article. Let me, however, mention a few ways hypnosis can be of benefit.
You probably know that hypnosis is helpful for quitting smoking and vaping, losing weight, dealing with stress, reducing anxiety, and eliminating fears and phobias, including dental fears, stage fright, and test-taking. It is also helpful for eliminating a variety of illnesses and conditions. These include allergies, asthma, insomnia, arthritis, blushing, warts, stuttering, and even alcoholism. It can also be used for breaking bad habits such as nail-biting. Other important uses of hypnosis include boosting confidence, use as an anesthetic for managing pain, recalling forgotten experiences, and even to help people locate items they have lost. Importantly, hypnosis can also help with depression, post-trauma anxiety, and grief and loss.
There are additional uses of hypnosis that many people are not aware of. People have used hypnosis to interact with “spirit guides” to gain valuable information about themselves. Hypnosis also allows you to connect to your “Wise Mind,” which lets you see things from a better perspective. Furthermore, hypnosis can allow you to gain access to the “Superconscious,” the level at which you can get answers to practically any question you have about yourself. People have even received healings from interacting with the beings on the superconscious level. Other lesser known uses of hypnosis include past-life regressions, future life regressions, and going to the “other side” (i.e. where one goes after dying).
A number of people are familiar with Esther Hicks, who channels a group of beings known as “Abraham.” These beings help you attain what you desire. With hypnosis, you can have a direct experience with beings like Abraham, and gain insights into such questions as, What is your purpose in life? Should you consider changing jobs? Are you in the right relationship? Perhaps you are wondering why something is not working in your life, or why you may be sabotaging yourself. All of this knowledge is available to you through hypnosis.
As many authors have stated, “You have no idea how powerful you are.” As you can see, hypnosis is a potent tool for a multitude of issues.
