Hypnosis is a basic understanding of how to communicate with the unconscious mind or the part of the mind that runs the body. So using it is just a way to talk or communicate with the body.
Given that you are just having a conversation, making it illegal is like saying you are not allowed to talk to your foot! So lets explore more about the legal definition of hypnosis.
The legal definition of Hypnosis
* Hypnosisis the bypass of the critical factor.
* The accepting of selective thinking, thoughts concepts and ideas that is ok by you.
* Altering a person’s belief or reality through suggestion.
Is the use of Hypnosis “Legal?”
In the 1950’s the American Medical Association made hypnosis legal if applied by an appropriately trained practitioner… later in the 1950’s the British and Australian Medical Associations followed suit. Milton Ericson was a instrumental in having hypnosis deregulated.
Although many religions practice hypnosis today in ceremonies and tradition, it’s not referred to as hypnosis. You can find its use in religious chanting meditation and prayer… or even in singing of hymns, miracle tents as in faith healers and or as they say being filled by the Holy Ghost or Spirit.
In the “Roman Catholic Church” (one of the most conservative religions) recognised hypnosis as a natural part of our own ability to heal and function, not the work of the devil. It stands by its claim today and gives approval for the use of hypnosis.
Many years ago those who practiced hypnosis outside the church were called witches and wizards, and were scared by the power of hypnosis so they originated the call to biblical practice of witch hunts and killed millions of innocent men, women and children who practiced such work.
We are thankful to medical science, archaeology, quantum science and common sense for the stopping of this practice.
