OVER the years, hypnosis has picked up all sorts of weird associations from stage hypnotists, the media and superstition.
This is a great shame, because in reality, hypnosis is your single most effective tool for change. Hypnosis is your birthright,
and you should know how to use it so it doesn't use you. Here we dispel the biggest hypnosis myths.
Hypnosis Myth 1) All hypnosis is the same
As with anything, hypnosis can be good, bad or indifferent. The most common is old-style authoritarian hypnosis of the
type "You are getting sleepy, you are feeling confident". Unsurprisingly, this sort of hypnosis doesn't work well with many
people. Good hypnosis uses subtle psychological principles and advanced communication patterns.
It's like the difference between a football coach who thinks you'll perform best if he yells at you, compared with the
more elegant style of a great leader who knows that to get the best from his people, he needs to understand motivation, to
cajole, encourage and reward.
Hypnosis Downloads.com offers hundreds of sessions using the best type of hypnosis.
Hypnosis Myth 2) Subliminals work
Subliminals are words that you can't hear. Common sense says they shouldn't work, and there's no research proving that
Hypnosis Myth 3) Some people can't be hypnotized
The only reason you can't be hypnotized is if you are incapable of paying attention due to extremely low IQ or brain damage.
That's not to say that every hypnotist can hypnotize you however. The more flexible the hypnotist, the more effective she
will be with the largest number of people.
Hypnosis Myth 4) Hypnosis is something weird that other people do to you
If you couldn't go into hypnosis, you wouldn't be able to sleep, to learn, or get nervous through 'negative self hypnosis'.
(You know when you imagine things going wrong and it makes you feel anxious? Well that's self hypnosis!)
