What Hypnosis Can Do for You and your mental health

 

Hypnosis – huh – what is it good for? Absolutely anything.

 

That might be a slight exaggeration, but the truth is that hypnosis is being used more and more regularly to treat a wide range of conditions. Apart from its well-known benefits to help people quit smoking, lose weight, gain confidence, and a host of other self-help issues, the practice is gaining wider acceptance in the treatment of mental illness and disease via Mindfulness hypnosis.

 

One of the problems with hypnosis is the word itself. It’s been hyped to the max in Hollywood movies and the like, when in reality hypnosis is nothing like that. Hypnotizing someone by asking them to look into your eyes as you swing a pocket watch back and forth will be about as effective – and as successful – as asking your bank manager for a loan you don’t have to pay back.

 

Self-hypnosis Makes You Receptive to Change

 

People fear the idea of hypnosis more than hypnosis itself, because they simply don’t really understand what it is. They wonder if they’ll go into a trance from which they won’t be able to wake up, or if the hypnotherapist will implant some wicked command in their mind as part of an evil scheme. But neither of these things could ever happen to anyone.

 

When you allow yourself to be hypnotized, the so-called “trance-like state” you enter is simply a state of focused attention. Your mind is relaxed, which makes it easier for you to accept suggestions and imagine possibilities. But you have to want to be hypnotized; you have to want to make changes in your life, or there isn’t a person on earth who can force you.

 

Hypnosis is a Natural State

 

Don’t let the idea of hypnosis keep you from experiencing it. In fact, you’ve already experienced it without even realizing! If you’ve ever found yourself daydreaming while reading a book or watching a movie, that’s exactly what hypnosis is like. You lose yourself in mental stresses of what you’re doing, and your attention is focused entirely on the act you’re performing to the exclusion of everything else.

 

During hypnotherapy, the therapist helps you achieve this daydream-like state on purpose. You shut out all external stimuli and direct your attention to a single thought, helping fire up your imagination and switch off your logical conscious mind. And that’s when you are most susceptible to suggestions.

 

If there’s an issue in your life you need to resolve, mental or physical, then maybe it’s time you thought about hypnosis as a possible solution. These days you can find a qualified hypnotherapist in any city, or you might prefer to tackle the problem in the comfort of your own home using hypnosis audio MP3s. Whichever route you decide to take, hypnosis could turn out to be your new best friend.

Who Needs Hypnosis?

 

Hypnosis is gaining worldwide recognition as an effective way to treat a whole host of conditions and illnesses, with documented evidence proving its ability to ease the symptoms of everything from asthma to warts.

 

For some people, however, even the idea of being hypnotized seems a bit radical, a step too far. But understanding the nature of hypnosis might just help you take advantage of one of the simplest and least invasive therapies on the planet.

 

You can access hypnosis in a number of ways. Hypnotherapy involves visiting a practitioner who will guide you into a hypnotic state, using scripts designed specifically to help with your particular problem. That can be difficult for some to cope with, possibly because they don’t feel comfortable sharing their secrets with others, or possibly because they feel deep down that it’s a waste of time and money.

 

Another way to get the benefit of hypnosis is through recorded sessions. These are available on reputable sites as audio downloads, usually in the form of MP3s that can be played on just about any device these days. You simply download the session that suits your problem or condition, plug in your headphones, and listen. The recording is designed to do the same job as a hypnotherapist, taking you through the process with a specially designed script. With headphones on, the outside world is shut off, making it easier for you to enter the state of suggestibility that hypnosis creates.

 

You Can’t Be Hypnotized

 

The thing you need to remember about hypnosis is that you don’t lose control of your mind. A hypnotherapist will not take over your thought processes and force you to do something against your will. That’s Hollywood bunkum and is literally impossible.

 

The same is true when you listen to recorded hypnosis sessions. You won’t get stuck in a trance-like state, even if something goes wrong and the recording skips or repeats itself. When your subconscious mind has had enough, it’ll either let you drift off to sleep or bring you back to normal wakefulness.

 

People develop these misconceptions for lots of different reasons, but the truth is that you can’t be hypnotized in the horror movie sense. What the hypnotherapist or recording does is makes it possible for you to enter a state of focused attention. They guide you into deep relaxation, switching off from the everyday world, bringing you into a dreamy state where your imagination is heightened and you’re more open to suggestion. So the only real question is – will it work for you?

 

Open Your Mind to the Possibilities

 

Research has shown that people who approach the experience of hypnosis with an open mind respond better than those who are skeptical. Some statistics regarding a person’s ability to be hypnotized are available, and they include the following facts:

 

  • At least 15 per cent of people respond well to hypnosis

  • Only 10 per cent of adults are difficult to hypnotize

  • Children are more susceptible to hypnosis than adults as a rule

  • The more vivid your imagination, the easier it is for you to enter a hypnotic state

 

Positive thinkers, children, and people with a vivid imagination are all likely to be able to be hypnotized. When you think of the potential for hypnosis to help manage pain, ease suffering, break bad habits and generally improve your quality of life, you’d have to be seriously hard-nosed not to want to at least give it a try.
