Try Hypnotherapy to Change Your Life for the Better

Try Hypnosis to Change Your Life for the Better

Dear Personal Development Seeker,

Do you ever feel that within you is the potential to achieve greatness yet you don’t know exactly what it is you want to achieve or how you’re going to get here?

Is there a goal perhaps that you want to achieve such as losing weight or quitting smoking?

Is there a certain part of your being that you desire to change or perhaps improve in an effort to enhance your personal development?

Is there a fear dwelling within you that you want to diminish?

Is there a part of your life that you feel is incomplete in some way?

The fact is, 10 out of 10 people would answer yes to at least one of these questions. The REAL question pertains not to what, but to how can we successfully achieve, attain, overcome or enhance some aspect of our lives. There are thousands of methods than a person can turn to improve themselves but the answer always lies within your mind. At the forefront of every decision, strength, weakness, ability or desire is a thought. Our thoughts dominate our minds and create our reality both directly and indirectly.

Our outer world is truly just a reflection of our inner world. How we view circumstances, situations, outcomes, relationships, etc. determines how we progress in our lives. Therefore, to improve or enhance any part of our outer world, we must first focus our energy on our inner world.

It starts with the mind. Many experts agree that our minds are the maps that determine the direction that we take in life. Therefore, to progress in the "right direction", we must make sure our maps are accurately programmed.

One of the most effective ways to accurately program the human mind is through hypnotherapy. By positively aligning your thoughts with your area of enhancement, hypnotherapy will create a definite focus for your mind. The result is positive progression.

Hypnotherapy – What are some beliefs about hypnosis?

Hypnotherapy is like aspirin -- it is a “technique” which many people believe in, but a technique that is not fully understood. Many people view hypnotherapy with suspicion and distrust.

One hundred years ago, hypnosis was seen as a state that was imposed upon individuals by a charlatan or “Svengali” type seeking to harm or control the subject. It was believed that the hypnotist could force a subject to do something against his or her will, to be exploited. Fifty years ago hypnosis was re-defined by the general public as a performance, magic to be enacted on a stage. The hypnotist might cause a member of the audience to laugh hysterically or quack like a duck. People have reported that once a hypnotist has established a rapport with an individual, that individual may be induced to see clairvoyantly or possess and demonstrate other “supernatural” abilities. The person might be able to read the past, take “spiritual” excursions to distant places or make a correct medical diagnosis without examining a patient.

Many modern “help” programs are linked to hypnosis, though they may not be billed that way. Some speed reading techniques and other super-learning programs use hypnosis theories. Hypnosis therapies are often used to control bedwetting, in hypnosurgery, to enhance weight loss, reduce addictions, and control behavior. Contemporary techniques also include Relaxation Response, meditation, acupuncture, bio-feedback, “faith healing,” EST, visualization methods, and suggestology are sometimes associated with hypnosis therapy.

Hypnotherapy – Can anyone be hypnotized?
Hypnotherapy has been shown to be more successfully experienced by people with a particular personality type. Dr. Herbert Spiegel, Psychiatrist and leading expert in the field of hypnosis, has grouped the population into three categories according to their “hypnotizability” and ranked them with a numeric score to indicate their susceptibility. Those scoring lowest (scoring 0 to 1) are termed “Apollonians.” Apollonians are generally not responsive to hypnosis or make very poor subjects. They are rational, guarded, and inhibited; they will not suspend critical judgment and are not trusting.

At the other extreme are the “Dionysians.” Dionysians will score 4 on the hypnotizability scale. These persons are trusting, imaginative, and creative. They are ruled by the heart and make the best hypnosis candidates. Dionysians may also score a 5, which is the highest rating; these individuals have been known to slip spontaneously into a “trance” state. In the middle are the “Odysseans,” who score a 2 or 3. They make fair hypnosis subjects. In personality, they tend to vacillate between head and heart.

Dr. Spiegel has also associated one’s ability to roll his eyes upward as another indicator of hypnotizability. Those scoring 0 to 1 have a very low eye roll; those scoring 4 and 5 can roll their eyes upward quickly until only whites will show. Those in the mid-category, scoring 2 to 3 have a moderate ability to roll their eyes. Spiegel has asserted that one’s hypnotizability cannot be improved; people are born with the tendency to one of the three levels and will remain so for life.

Hypnotherapy – Can hypnosis be dangerous?
Hypnotherapy can be abused and misused. Individuals who submit themselves to the control of another for therapy or medical help most certainly run the risk of being exploited. If the clinician or hypnotist is unscrupulous or perhaps careless, he or she may take advantage of an unsuspecting subject. The hypnotized individual is in a state of high trust and suggestibility, which makes him/her quite vulnerable.

Beyond the clinical possibilities for misuse and danger, lies the question of the advisability of using hypnosis as a therapeutic or self-help tool. Whether a person believes in other-induced hypnosis or self-hypnosis, concern should be focused on the future implications of employing hypnosis for current problems. Will a person become nonfunctional without the continued use of hypnosis therapy to aid them in their troubles? Will a person unnecessarily seek to exist in this “unnatural” state of consciousness? Does hypnotherapy become an escape? Is it a lasting cure or a temporary fix? Before an individual submits to a course of hypnosis treatment, he or she should be able to supply themselves with honest answers to these questions.

Hypnotherapy – Is it right for me?
Hypnotherapy leads to an altered state of consciousness in which your mind will be very susceptible to outside suggestion. That susceptibility is what the hypnotist needs in order to modify your behavior. Consider these questions:

  • Am I willing to give up control of my mind to another individual?
  • Am I willing to submit the control of my actions to the hypnotist?
  • Am I willing to run the risk of being exploited? If under hypnosis, I commit a crime like murder or rape, am I willing to suffer the consequences?
  • Will the therapy provide long-term results or just short-term improvement?
  • Will I become addicted to the therapy in order to get the desired results?
  • Can I find lasting help through other means, like counseling or medical help?
Hypnosis involves the transfer of control, away from yourself to another person. Many people believe that self-control is one of the greatest qualities you can have. Why give it away? The Bible even values self-control, stating that God gives a person this quality.

Through God’s help, we can find lasting hope and healing. The answers to your recovery do not lie in hypnosis therapy.
