Today is 4th January – the International Day of Hypnotism. The purpouse to celebrate this day is to remove people’s misconceptions about hypnotherapy and tell them about the benefits of this therapy. Most people confuse Hypnotherapy with “MIND CONTROL” or “STAGE HYPNOSIS”.
People sometimes say, jokingly of course, “Oh! am I under your spell right now? Have you hypnotized me?” Some people think that Hypnotherapy is a truth serum. So, let me tell you that Hypnotherapy is not a truth serum. Recently someone called me and said “I want to book a session for my wife, as I think that she has an extra marital relationship. I want to know the truth”. I replied “NO! We don’t do that kind of things. We are here to help you, to heal your issues, not to do such senseless things”.
Hypnotherapy is a life-changing opportunity in a positive way. It helps people to solve their issues in their day to day life. It has helped many people, coming from different walks of life, to heal several issues. Improved memory skills, increased self-confidence, healthy weight loss, easy childbirth, success in goal accomplishment, increased mutual love and respect in relationships, smoking cessation, pain management, elimination of fears and phobias has all been made possible using Hypnotherapy. Hypnotism isn’t about ‘Mind Control’, and there’s no way to make someone do something they wouldn’t like to do.
“Hypnosis” is a natural, yet altered, relaxed state of body and mind with many beneficial characteristics. It is “Natural” in the sense that we experience a relaxed state of body and mind several times during the day. Like, when we wake up and are aware of being awake, but are comfortably lying down in the bed – because everyone loves those snoozy-lazy five more minutes! Or, like the times when we are day dreaming. The body and mind are so relaxed that we let our imagination leave the four walls of our office cabin or classroom or conference room and run wild and free – skydiving sometimes, getting an Oscar sometimes. There are many other times that we experience a naturally relaxed state of body and mind, that is hypnosis.
During hypnosis, relaxation of critical faculty aids in communication between the conscious and subconscious mind. This communication allows for positive and beneficial suggestions, ideas and information to be accepted and acted upon by the subconscious mind. And this is what we aim to do as Hypnotherapists.
So, try Hypnotherapy, as, it only has amazing benefits…
