Answers to common questions about
HYPNOSIS!
by Mary Elizabeth Raines

What is Hypnosis? WHAT IS HYPNOSIS, ANYHOW?

Hypnosis is a state of mind where the conscious, wakeful mind of an individual relaxes--you might say that it takes a little "coffee break"--leaving the subconscious mind open to suggestions for change or improvement. Intuitive faculties are heightened and higher guidance is more readily available. Some states of hypnosis have measurable brain wave frequencies different from both sleep & alert consciousness.

 
 What is Hypnosis?DOES BEING HYPNOTIZED FEEL WEIRD?

No. Most people experience hypnosis as a pleasant and normal sensation of deep relaxation. In fact, all of us go in and out of light hypnotic states every day. An example of this is daydreaming.

 
What is Hypnosis?WILL I FORGET EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENS DURING MY SESSION?

Although it's possible to relax so deeply that one doesn't remember her or his hypnosis session, most people remain fully aware of all that occurs. If this is a concern for you, ask your hypnotist to suggest to you that you will remember everything that has happened--and you will.

 
What is Hypnosis? AM I GOING TO LOSE CONTROL WHEN I'M HYPNOTIZED?

No.The person being hypnotized is always in control. You can emerge from hypnosis any time you desire. You can't be hypnotized to do anything you don't want to do, so you won't reveal any personal secrets or accept any suggestions which go against your ethical & moral codes.

 
What is Hypnosis?WHAT IF I CAN'T BE HYPNOTIZED?

Only a very small percentage of the human population cannot be hypnotized, including some psychotics, people on certain medications and those with very low IQs. All that is required is average intelligence and a normal ability to concentrate. Although some studies show that entering a hypnotic state is easier for people who are bright and who have good imaginations, the key factor is your willingness to cooperate.

 
What is Hypnosis?WON'T BEING HYPNOTIZED WEAKEN MY WILL?

On the contrary, hypnosis is frequently used to strengthen a person's will.

 

What is Hypnosis?WHAT IF MY HYPNOTIST HAS A HEART ATTACK DURING A SESSION? WILL I BE STUCK IN HYPNOSIS?

No.You cannot be stuck in hypnosis. You would either fall asleep or wake up...and, I hope, perform CPR!

 

What is Hypnosis?IS IT TRUE THAT EACH TIME I AM HYPNOTIZED, IT BECOMES EASIER FOR ME TO ENTER A HYPNOTIC STATE?

Yup.

 

What is Hypnosis?WILL YOU MAKE ME RUN AROUND THE ROOM AND IMITATE ELVIS?

Not unless you're an Elvis impersonator and you ask me to enhance your skills. (See, however, the page on stage & entertainment hypnosis!)
