Thanks to popular culture and movies misrepresenting hypnosis, many people have a hypnosis myth buried within their belief system. In this blog post, we will dispel 3 myths about hypnosis and help you understand what hypnosis really is.
Hypnosis Myth 1: Hypnosis only works on weak-minded people.
False! Hypnotherapists have helped clients that come from all walks of life, including CEOs, celebrities, and royalty. They are not limited by age, background, or intelligence. A hypnotherapy session is always tailored to the specific needs of the client and the hypnotherapist is trained to help walk you through the steps yourself.
Hypnosis Myth 2: The Hypnotist has power over the person’s mind.
False! The hypnotherapist is there to guide you through the process of hypnosis and you will be in control at all times and directing your own experience. You can literally choose at any time to either accept or ignore the suggestions as you are always aware of what’s going on.
Hypnosis Myth 3: The Hypnotist can make you do things against your will.
False! There are no mind-control powers, as seen on TV or film, that hypnotherapy has. The hypnotherapist is there to guide you through the process of hypnosis and will never force suggestions on you without your consent. Again, you can stop the session at any time and simply “wake up” out of the trance state.
After dispelling these hypnosis myths, hopefully, you can see that hypnosis is 100% safe and can be extremely effective in helping you reach your personal goals. Interested in experiencing it for yourself? Book your free consultation with me today to learn more!
