Hypnosis A Joke? Absolutely not. Hypnosis is simply magnified concentration
attached to a belief system. Is
it really possible to be someone else, or act a certain way, just
because of a suggestion?
Ever been married?
Then you have your answer. All kidding aside. Continue...
- hypnosis - positive thinking, the power of the mind.... what ever
you want to call it is up to the individual. No one has the power to
walk up to a stranger on the street and without warning say SLEEP
and they fall to the ground in an uncontrolled trance.
Hypnosis has been around for many years but no one really knows how
to classify it, as it's not a medicine, drug, a religion, or even a
cure. Most people have
to see something before they can believe it but with hypnosis
there's nothing physical to see because everything is happening in
Hypnosis has a long history throughout the history of mankind, but
it's not accepted by everyone.
Many people will never see hypnosis for being anything more
than a cheap form of entertainment but
hypnosis has created a loyal following, who believe that the process
works. Ironically, the
only people that can give a true assessment of hypnosis, are the
subjects .... but why believe them, they're in a trance right?
if hypnosis is not cultic, nor demonic then is it Christian? It is
none. It is simply magnified concentration by the individual
attached to the believers choice of a strong belief system. If you choose to
believe something then it becomes part of your belief system. If
someone tells you that it is wrong for a person to choose what they
want to believe then every religion, every educational facility,
every radio and TV organization including the film industry is wrong
and all are guilty of controlling peoples minds. Give me a
brake! Surely you the reader must realize that you are choosing
right now to read this web site, not because I sent you a brain wave
and controlled you to come to my web site and that I am forcing you
to read this with you having control over your will. If that is
happening then you will send all your savings to me as soon as you
leave this web site! Where is the common sense! People who believe
that hypnosis is a power are probably the same people who believe
that the magic of a magician, or what is known as an illusionist, is real too! Hello! Anyone
listening? If the magic was real then magicians would not need semi-tractor trailers to haul
there illusions around the country! They are simply BOXES for gosh
sakes, yet through their creative talent they are able to help you
and I to create an evening of mystery in our minds and what we call
it magic. Yet, the fact remains, that there will always be a group
that chooses to believe that the magic is real and there will always
be a group that chooses to accept that it is simply entertainment.
The fact still remains true today that people would rather
believe in their fears than in the truth! There will be those who
believe hypnosis is real, (and we do have medical documentation that
shows that the mind and body does respond to what we call hypnosis)
and there will be those who believe it is just made up.
Even the Bible tells us:
(John 8:32 KJV) And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
(John 8:36 KJV) If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
question arises: Is the mind so weak that a total stranger
could infiltrate your consciousness and control it.
It sounds so unbelievable, but then again, the whole basis of
hypnosis is your willingness to believe.
Many will say, "If you open
the door to your mind, there's no telling who might come in. "
Again are you saying that a person is so weak that a person, thing,
demon, spirit or other form of agent can have access to that persons
soul? Can you please define the word "door". Where did you
learn about a door. We are talking about the human brain. Hypnosis
is the term we use that is really the science to how the mind works.
Is hypnosis just another word for mind control?
Hypnosis is stated as a psychological condition in which an
individual is put into an unconscious state also called a trance.
Once in the trance, suggestions are given to the individual
and the person is supposed to act on the suggestions either during
the hypnosis session or after he or she is released from the
session, the trance the what ever you want to call it.
Apparently, being put in a so called trance is not a
requirement because some people can receive their suggestions
without being in an unconscious state. The
fact is people are easily influence by those around them. Some, have
a stronger influence on them than others because the person simply
allows it to be that way. Point: People will follow people
faithfully until that person makes them mad or disappoints them, now
that same person no longer wants to follow, or be with that person.
Example: ever heard of two people who were once in love now they are
going through a divorce. Well, something changed. There belief
system in one another.
So who are these people with the power to control your mind?
Are their powers genetic or just some special gift that very
few people have? The
people mostly associated with hypnosis are called hypnotists and
frankly, anyone can learn to be a hypnotist because it doesn't
require a degree. There
are sites, all over the internet, with people trying to sell their
"how to be a hypnotist" information.
But there is a more professional version of the hypnotist and
they're called Hypnotherapist. Hypnotherapists attend classes and are trained and certified
by a group of hypnotists in the use of hypnosis.
What is happening when someone is in a trance, session, altered
state of mind etc......, are they sleeping, dreaming or is it an
act? The person under
hypnosis, is called the subject.
When the subjects are what many call "under
hypnosis", they are actually more
concentrated and focused than they've ever been.
The focus is so enhanced that the subjects can temporarily
forget certain aspects of their lives, like dreaming, they are
simply able to use their mind to create their own chosen dream.
Being under hypnosis can bring about feelings of heaviness,
lightness and numbness, joy and excitement. Some
subjects feel like, they're just observing what is happening,
without actually being a part of it. Our
mind has the ability to do what we call dreaming, which allows our
body to respond to what we visualize during that dream mode. In
hypnosis, the same thing is taking place.
benefits can be achieved, by using hypnosis.
Hypnosis can be used as a way to help people better
understand themselves. It's
also used to help the individual to terminate bad habits, recover past memories
that they have blocked out, to
reduce anxiety and to overcome certain disorders that were created
by the individual in their own minds.
On the health side, hypnosis can also be used to help the
individual to reduce their pain associated with medical procedures, such as childbirth and burn
treatments etc. It's also
helpful in surgery, when anesthesia is not appropriate. Self
hypnosis is something we all experience from time to time. I leave
you with this, have you ever daydreamed? Well, that too is a form of
what we call hypnosis! Enjoy life and choose your choices for your
life well, for they determine the YOU and the results you get out of
I wish you the best.
