The most powerful tool you possess
There are potentially huge benefits for those who use hypnosis
as part of everyday life. When you understand hypnosis you start
to see its potential to improve human performance in the physical,
emotional and intellectual realms. For me, rumour, gossip and suspicion
weren't good enough.
I determined to learn all I could about hypnosis - I learned every
fact and practised every technique under the sun. I took several
training courses - some good, some terrible. I invested thousands
of hours of devoted study to hypnosis and discovered just what
is possible. I hypnotised friends, neighbours and work colleagues.
Hypnosis greatly changed things for me on a personal level
How hypnosis helped me
I used to be shy. Thanks to hypnosis I can now talk to thousands
at a time and can approach anybody calmly and confidently.
I used to have poor concentration and procrastinate; thanks to
hypnosis I can instantly motivate myself.
I used to find physical work outs and exercise exhausting but
because of hypnosis I am now in the best shape of my life.
Incidentally I also stopped myself blushing with hypnosis. Now
if ever I have a difficult call or conversation coming up, something
I may naturally feel reluctant to do (you know the kind of thing)
I spontaneously self hypnotise and rehearse the upcoming situation
feeling good, with myself remaining calm. In this way I habitually
set my own emotional 'blue prints' for up coming situations. Having
said that it's naturally that some people have concerns or half
digested 'hand me down' ideas regarding hypnosis. A common one
is the one about 'mind control.' However what does this really
Why you are more in control of yourself in hypnosis
If someone expresses concerns about being 'controlled' in hypnosis
what they mean is they don't want to be like a robot, an automaton
that is forced to obey the every whim of the hypnotist. We can't
help but influence others but we don't control them. To understand
why you need to understand hypnosis better.
So what is hypnosis like?
Hypnosis isn't like a coma. It's not unconsciousness - more a
subtle shifting of consciousness. In hypnosis, you can still think
logically but you also have access to the 'software' of your mind
so that you can update instinctive emotional and physical responses.
In fact the hypnotised subject (not the hypnotist) calls the shots.
When I hypnotise someone I need to go at their speed and respond
to their needs and expectations. Hypnosis will give you more control
in your own life because of what it enables you to do.
How can I be so sure?
Because over the decades I've seen all kinds of people, all ages
and from all backgrounds turn their lives around thanks to hypnosis.
When you use hypnosis for yourself it improves confidence in all
kinds of ways. When you use it to change other's lives it just
blows you away. This is what I mean.
When I first hypnotised someone to feel no sensation in a painful
arthritic arm it was an incredible feeling. When I first cured
life long phobias quickly and comfortably I was astounded. When
I stopped hardened alcoholics from drinking and even got a heroin
addict off the stuff and back into mainstream life again I started
to feel angry that people could just associate hypnosis with entertainment.
With the aid of hypnosis I (and many people I have trained and
worked with) have helped severely depressed people feel strong
and positive again. The rewards and satisfactions are hard to describe.
I'm going to take a stand against ignorance and short sightedness
around hypnosis and here's why.
Why you need to reclaim hypnosis for yourself
Hypnosis is your birthright. It's nature's optimum learning tool.
In fact to learn and perform anything well you need to experience
a natural focussing of attention, a natural kind of hypnosis. To
be successful hypnosis needs to be your companion and friend.
Successful people use it naturally all the time because hypnosis
is natural. It's the way we learn new responses. Unlike medications
its side effects are purely positive - one expectant mother I worked
with to feel relaxed during child birth later reported that she
was also more relaxed when flying!
Hypnosis is easy to learn and every body can benefit. Hypnosis
is a safe environment to 'try out' new behaviours and emotional
patterns before you experience them for real. So the young man
can ask a woman out for a date many times in calm relaxed hypnosis
so that by the time he does it for real it feels real and natural
and relaxed. Sports people who use hypnosis learn new quicker and
more accurately. So hypnosis gives you more control of yourself
and your life, it's natural and gives you instant benefits and
it's a way of 'trying on' and establishing new patterns of emotional
response and behaviour, Hypnosis enables you to develop yourself
as a human being.
