Most people believe what Hollywood has portrayed as Hypnosis. In fact most people believe that hypnosis isn’t real They have seen movies, or poor stage shows, or have seen a guy on TV walking around as if he has power over the people on stage. This is so far from the truth of hypnosis, Hypnosis is not funny having people believe that they can get results and change behaviour is powerful. Hypnosis has many uses and it success is varied depending on the hypnotist and the ability to know what kind of hypnosis is best to be used for that particular candidate.
There are many techniques that a hypnotherapist or hypnotist can use. Here are the more common techniques.
Each of these techniques has its own advantage and will work with different results with different people. Simply using one type of induction or technique will not work for everyone. This just might be the reason that people say or believe that they can not be hypnotised.
Fact is everyone can be hypnotised and everyone has experienced hypnosis at some level or another. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind that everyone experiences everyday often more than once. Have you ever tried talking to someone who is watching TV and found it hard to get their attention? This is a natural trance state.
It is interesting to know that only people that are able to follow directions or instructions are able to be hypnotised. Lets put this another way, only intelligent people can be hypnotised! People with mental deficiency can not be hypnotised. So when someone says they can not be hypnotised, they are saying that the technique that was used did not work with them or that they are not intelligent enough to follow instructions.
So hypnosis is a natural state that just about everyone, everyday goes through. However understanding how to use that state to get results is the skill. This is why people need to learn the process or hypnosis to introduce other people or them self using self hypnosis.
