Hypnosis is a completely natural, pleasant and harmless
state. How many
times have you been "in your own little world", distracted by something momentarily or simply daydreaming? How many times have you
done something automatically while thinking about something else
completely, (like driving, eating, or walking for example)? These were occurances of natural trance.
In stage hypnosis, the "hypnotist" picks
people who are already very suggestable (and this would be true for
them even without any hypnosis!). Obviously if they volunteer at a
stage show, they are already up for the fun of it and have that
performer aspect somewhere in their personality. And out of all of the
audience these few are the only ones kept on stage by the
This is because, the truth is, in
hypnosis you are fully in control at all times and will only do or say
things that you choose or agree to do or say.
Pure Hypnoanalysis, when used as a theraputic tool, is a gentle relaxation, focussing the mind on pleasant relaxing thoughts. Hypnosis is one of the most effective, quickest and safest
tools for treating many psychologial and emotional problems,
behaviours and habits. Most emotional or psychological problems and
habits are the result of "automatic" responses and
behaviours from our subconscious which seem outside of our control. When
your mind is relaxed your subconscious is open to positive changes,
new habits and thoughts thus making powerful, permanent changes in our lives very quickly.
Doing this removes the old problem feelings, behaviours or symptoms.
