As a certified hypnotist I see many people interested in the skill of hypnosis for all types of reasons(some good and some bad).
In this article, I will be clarifying what hypnosis is and what it isn’t because there are plenty of misconceptions about what hypnosis is and what it isn’t.
Hypnosis is not brainwashing or mind controlling into your mindless slave.
This is purely fantasy and made up.
Is it possible, to brainwash others?
Yes, but, it’s much different than how people expect.
People think they can say a bunch of hypnotic words and people will automatically obey and accept your suggestions.
Which is far from true…
The critical factor of other people’s mind will filter and block out ideas, beliefs, suggestions, etc. to ensure safety of ones ego and sense of self.
This is why sometimes no matter how hard you try to impress an idea onto another they just simply don’t accept it.
Why is this the case?
Because, hypnosis is INTERNAL BASED.
Nothing about hypnosis is external.
Meaning the hypnotist is not forcing people to do anything.
They are simply GUIDING and LEADING people to do what they probably already want to do, but, just need a little push.
And to be honest most people will never master hypnosis to the level of brain washing or mind control.
Is it possible? Sure…
But, it a lot of it is more so thinking in terms of guiding people to your idea as opposed to forcing people to your idea.
So, I the hypnotist, see people in a tough situation. When I am doing healing and therapy work, I usually remove myself out of the equation and let them process the experience in their own way, so that, they are processing it internally.
It’s almost as if I was never there to begin with.
I am completely professional and only aim to give people healing and therapy effects with my approach. I have no intention of harming another person’s psyche(unless to shake up their reality).
Sometimes, people are confined in a certain bubble and you have to shake things up a bit to make them to see the dire of the situation.
However, that is the rare occasion, normally you can simply guide people to where they already want to go based upon how they think and how they see world.
Most people who are new to this line of work.
They see hypnosis as a form of control and manipulation, a way to get their needs-wants met and force people to comply with what it is they want.
But, this usually, doesn’t work very well…
Because, they are forgetting people are interpreting reality the scopes of their OWN FILTERS not the hypnotist or change agent.
NLP teaches the better you can use THEIR resources to make a decision the more likely you will create the intended effect or outcome.
Usually people have an idea and spit out random words based on they think life should go, and based on their language preference.
But, to the receiving end unless they resonate with it, it will have no effect.
To close this up, hypnosis is not about FORCE it’s about guiding and leading people to create the lives they want to create by removing the obstacles that are in the way.
