8 Delusions and Myths About Hypnosis

When you hear the term, “hypnosis” the image of a person with a spinning wheel and a pendulum comes to mind. As it turns out, that is one of the methods which can be used, but it is hardly the best way or the only way to perform hypnosis.

1. Hypnosis Doesn't Improve your Life

Now that we understand the process of hypnosis better than ever, it has gained many different and useful applications. For example, one can have a better life with the right mindset and hypnosis can often bring this about better than other means. Life improvement is a real possibility.

2. Is Hypnosis Manipulation?

Hypnosis can be used to influence people. An example would be excellent sales people. Another would be politicians. You can notice the charisma and how well it works to convince people. At the same time, this is not true manipulation, which would be “tricking” a person into doing something they don't want to do.

3. Hypnosis is Not Real

One common misconception about hypnosis is that it is not real. This is easy to believe. Thinking about mind influence alone will make anyone want to believe it is not real. But hypnosis is real and it has been used now for a good 200 years. Clinicians use it to help people with depression, anxiety, and other mental issues. Certain clinicians use hypnosis to improve social skills and management of triggers for stress and anger. Hypnosis is not just a parlor trick. Using the Raikov Effect you can even self-hypnotize yourself into believing you possess a certain skill that you’re actually lacking in that moment.  

4. Hypnosis Does Not Work

If you were to look over the vast amount of information about the success of hypnosis and self-hypnosis, it would surprise you. Of course this technique works. There are actually certifications for the practice and some methods which can improve your life.

5. My Life Won't Be Improved

Look at the different practices that can improve your life. For example, the incel movement is one example of changing perspectives and moving to a new understanding can be helped with hypnosis techniques.

6. Hypnosis is Evil

This is an interesting delusion and it comes about largely due to fiction in television and books. People tend to think that demons like the devil are associated with hypnosis as a means of mind control. You have the right to believe what you wish, but this is purely delusional.

7. Does Hypnosis Cause Harm?

The technique was never intended for harm. Franz Mesmer was the scientist who looked into it at great length and this was a long time ago. Never once was it intended for harm. Instead, it was looked at for healing and communication, which has only recently manifested.

8. Hypnosis is the Easy Way Out

You will find that many people think hypnosis simply means you are not willing to do the work themselves. This could not be further from the truth. Many people practice self-hypnosis and that takes work. Even sessions with a therapist will take time to work with.

As many people know, there is no real easy way out of being stuck in a circumstance you are in. Ideally, you will change yourself and experience the things you want to in life.
