We’ve all seen TV shows and movies that portray hypnosis as “mind control,” where the hypnotherapist takes over your mind and gets you to do things you don’t want to.

But as entertaining as that may be, it’s far from reality.

Hypnosis is not mind control, and no hypnotherapist can make you do tasks you don’t want to do. Hypnosis is a therapeutic tool that’s used by therapists and psychologists all over the world to help patients overcome emotional trauma and physical health problems.

A State of Hypnosis

Woman-being-hypnotizedContrary to popular belief, you aren’t unconscious or vulnerable when you’re in a state of hypnosis. You can’t be brainwashed and manipulated against your will.

You’re aware of your surroundings and what is being said to you. You have complete control over yourself and can end the session whenever you please.

The only difference between a state of hypnosis and a natural state is that you have heightened focus and are more open to suggestibility.

When a therapist induces hypnosis, it’s called hypnotherapy. When it is self-induced with the help of audio/visual aid, it’s called self-hypnosis.

Understanding Self-Hypnosis

Self-hypnosis is primarily used to alter behavior, attitudes, and emotions.

For example, many people use self-hypnosis to help with smoking cessation. In fact, some studies show that self-hypnosis may be the easiest way to quit smoking because it alters thinking patterns and your perception of smoking.

Self-hypnosis taps into the subconscious mind and reprograms thinking patterns, so your perception of smoking and its impact on your health change. With time, it’ll become easier for you to resist temptation, and before you know it, you won’t be tempted at all!

People have used self-hypnosis to alter their thought processes to change their life for the better. Self-hypnosis can be used to boost confidence, eat healthier, stop smoking and prevent overeating.

Self-hypnosis is even used in sports by athletes who want to heighten their performance and need to control their anxiety/stress before a game and reduce pain after an injury.
