4 Hypnosis Misconceptions
Hypnosis has been around for years, and it has been gaining more popularity as more people understand what hypnosis can do. Still, I have a lot of people ask me questions….these are a few that seem to come up frequently.
Here are three misconceptions below….
I can be cured in one session.
For some people and in some situations, you can, but for most it is a process. It usually takes more then 3 and up to 7 sessions to have the full effect. My Healing Hypnosis for Nurses is a minimum of 5 sessions. Even my Mindful Programs are 4 sessions or more. One reason is the “cause” of the situation may not be determined until after you have attended a few sessions. On top of that, you are creating changes that took a while to develop. It didn’t take you one day to gain weight, or to go through burnout, and you didn’t quit smoking with one nicotine patch, so think of it as time well spent…on your future.
Those who use hypnosis are weak.
So not true! Using the power of the subconscious mind to make you a better version of yourself is not weakness, it is strength.
People can be told to do things they don’t want too.
No, you can’t. Your moral values are in your subconscious mind and they are strong. This is one of the reasons change is so hard. We are wired to do what we do…and continue it even if our conscious mind does’t want too. You can’t make changes unless you choose too. A hypnotist is a facilitator, but all hypnosis is essentially self hypnosis.
If I hear everything you say during hypnosis, I am not hypnotized.
You will hear most everything just like a conversation. Your mind may wander during certain parts of the hypnosis session, but your subconscious mind hears everything and that is what we are talking too to help you create change. Most hypnotists, including myself will talk to you during hypnosis as well so we want you to hear what we are saying.
