Are you afraid not to wake up from hypnosis or to do things you do not want to do during it?
First of all, it is necessary to distinguish between the terms hypnosis and hypnotherapy. Hypnosis is a technique that is used to influence others‘ subconscious for any purpose. Also for demonstration and manipulation. In hypnotherapy, however, hypnosis is used only with the intention of initiating or supporting the healing process. From the media, it is clear that some people have also negative experience with hypnosis and that because there are some people who abuse hypnosis. However, this is a purposeful manipulation and manipulation can be done also without hypnosis. Using an influence on subconscious is currently very widespread in many areas. You do not even realize how many times you are in hypnosis when you look at an advertisement, for example, or when someone tries to get you their product in.
Do you perceive the hypnotist as someone who has supernatural abilities?
The truth is that the hypnotist can be any juggler who demonstrates his or her ability to control others in the public. When someone wants to manipulate a man, they can do it. It is enough when they have a strong personality. They always choose a submissive person. They tell them they will not remember anything and the hypnotized object loses all the barriers. They will forget it, but especially because they want not to be embarrassed if they did something embarassing during the hypnosis. It’s a psychologically thoughtful game. The power of influencing other people’s subconscious is the power of personality. The hypnotist gets it only when you give it to their hands, knowingly or unknowingly.
Unlike such use or abuse of hypnosis, hypnotherapy is based on the relationship of deep trust between the therapist and the client, and hypnosis is used during it consciously to achieve together previosly determined intention.
Man is not in hypnotherapy deprived of free will and hypnosis can be interrupted at any time.
Are you afraid you will not be able to enter hypnosis?
If you say that nobody will hypnotize you, so nobody will really do it . But only when you are fully aware of hypnosis. However, you may be hypnotized and you will not know it. Even such cases are known, but it is manipulation, not therapy.
In hypnotherapy, people enter hypnosis completely consciously and willingly. Everyone is able to enter into contact with their subconscious. In the case of deep traumatic experiences, it is of course important to approach the subconscious with great respect and deep humility supported by professionalism.
Are you scared that you will not be able to wake up from hypnosis?
Hypnosis is not in any way an unnatural state, but a state completely natural. Most people see this state as very pleasant as it is a state of deepened relaxation. Even if hypnosis brings washing out painful memories or suppressed emotions, after their processing, most people feel a deepened inner peace. The process of awakening as well as the course of hypnosis is eminently unique. Just as there are people who return from hypnosis very quickly and are immediately wakeful, there are those who do not want to come bach from the pleasant relaxed state and wake up slowly, and they may stay for a few moments in a sort of state of wakeful dreaming.
Do you think you will not remember anything after hypnosis?
This depends primarily on the depth of hypnosis. In the third deepest (somnabulistic) phase of hypnosis, which is sometimes called trance, the conscious mind may not be able to remember. Some things at this stage it does not record. In most cases, however, hypnotherapy is carried out in a state of light (hypnoidal) or deeper (cataleptic) hypnosis in which our ability to remember is in no way affected. The hypnotherapist never suggests you that you will not remember anything. It is an advantage for him or her if you remember as much as possible. You can subsequently work with your memories therapeutically.
Are you afraid you’re going to tell your PIN code when you’re in hypnosis or where you hide gold after your grandmother at home?
That does not work like this at all. Occasionally for example jealous partners want to use hypnosis to refute or validate their presumptions. But if you do not want to, you do not say anything in hypnosis, respectively you do not even get into hypnosis. If you have strong motivation not to reveal something, even the best hypnotist does not get it by a direct question from you. In hypnotherapy, hypnosis is used to treat morbid jealousy, it is never used to gain questionable evidence, which has no value at all, and certainly can not help partners whose relationship and personality is deeply disturbed by jealousy.
However, you should not forget that even a hypnotherapist may abuse your state of deep trust and relaxation. He is a man just like a priest or other therapist. That’s why it’s very important to properly verify the man you want to entrust your subconscious to. It is ideal to get references and choose a therpaist whose professional and moral qualities are guaranteed by a responsible organization (such as Chamber of Holistic Hypnotherapy). Meet them personally and allow yourself ask them all the questions that are important to you. Each of us has a natural inner protection, which let you know to whom you can trust and who cannot. If you have any doubts, no therapist can force you to undergo the therapy at him or her. After the introductory consultation, you have the freedom to decide.
