Hypnosis and The Idea Of Being Forced To Do Something Against Your Will
I recently saw a comment from a man who mentioned that he had been hypnotized numerous times by other Hypnotherapists but he knew that the sessions hadn’t worked because they had not been able to get him to do something against his will.
When I read that, I knew that this man had an erroneous concept of what the hypnotic state is. First of all, this is something that will only work if you allow it to. So if you say, this isn’t going to work for me or are too busy overanalyzing what the Hypnotist or Hypnotherapist is doing, then guess what, it probably won’t work and even if you still go into the hypnotic state, you might not get the full experience since you are wasting your mental energy on defying him or her instead of getting what you came in for.
Are there some people who are highly suggestible and quickly go into trance, yes. Those are the kind of people that Hypnotists in Vegas love and they are also great for tv. Since on tv, things need to happen quickly. That being said, there are plenty of other people that have analytical minds who hypnotize differently.
I’ll give you an example: When I go to Vegas, I always put my hand up so that I’m picked as a volunteer. I’ve gone to see two of the best guys there and yet, I’m always one of the first ones to get kicked off the stage. And I’m a Hypnotherapist. It’s not that I’m not hypnotizable because I totally am. It’s that I have an analytical mind and that isn’t the ideal set-up for me. I’m not going to do something silly on that stage. It’s just not happening.
When I get hypnotized in a therapeutic setting, I just did it yesterday by the way, I feel totally in control and I know that if I wanted to open my eyes, I could totally do it but I don’t because I want to be receptive to the suggestions being given to me. They are suggestions that are based on what I said I wanted and on top of that, I’m paying a few hundred dollars for the session, so trust, I am on board. Since I know how my mind needs to be spoken to, all I have to do is tell my Hypnotherapist you are going to do this and that and voila, I go into state and it’s always a very positive experience.
To put it to you plain and simple, hypnosis in the form of hypnotherapy is all about creating the ideal state of super focus and receptivity so that your mind can take on positive suggestions. If you’re interested in coming in for sessions, be sure to come in without any expectations and an open mind to you taking control of mind through our sessions. Your hypnotherapist will gauge your suggestibility and know how to hypnotize you. I know that at my office, we hypnotize people with analytical minds all the time.
And btw, if you live way too far and that’s not a possibility, in a few months, I will be launching my upcoming MyMindTime website. It’s still in the works so be sure to sign up for my newsletter at my website so that I can let you know when it’s ready for you.
