Double Your Income NLP & Hypnosis

 

Myth#1: A hypnotist can make you do things against you will or do things you won’t remember.

Absolutely false. Hypnosis is an altered state of awareness, not “no awareness”.  It has no powers over you at all, it leverages your own interenal powers to help you, not hurt you.

No hypnotist can make you do things against your will. All hypnosis is really self hypnosis using the guiding voice of a trained hypnotherapists.

The hypnotist merely guides you into a hypnotic state, and feeds your mind with carefully worded suggestions. If you felt uncomfortable with these suggestions, you may reject them at will. Hypnosis is essentially a matter of cooperation between the hypnotist and his subject, not some form of power the hypnotist possesses which will compel the subject to submit to his or her commands.  It is safe.

Myth#2: Once under hypnosis, one could get stuck there and never wake up.

If you are under hypnosis and the hypnotist suddenly left the room, two things may happen. 1. You will either realize that the hypnotist is no longer talking to you, and will open your eyes, feeling fresh and alert. 2. Or you may drift into natural sleep, in which case you will wake up after a few minutes (or hours.)  There is no documented cases of anyone being left in hypnosis.

Myth#3: Only weak-minded people can be hypnotized

False, Hypnosis has nothing to do with will power or gullibility. People often think they are too “intelligent” to be hypnotized.  There is no connection between the two. On the contrary, the more intelligent a person is, the easier it is for him to be hypnotized and achieve results. To be hypnotized one needs the abilities of concentration, imagination and vivid visualization.  The list of people who cannot be hypnotized included children with no ability to focus, retarded individuals, and very drunk people who cannot hold a thought.  If you are have an average IQ or above, it will work for you.

Myth#4: Under hypnosis, one can be made to reveal his deepest sacred secrets

As already mentioned, in a hypnotic state the subject is fully alert, in fact more alert, than usual. The hypnotist can only guide the subject to remember forgotten memories or discuss difficult ones with ease. Whether the subject will reveal them to the hypnotist a particular secret is entirely at his own discretion.

Myth#5: Hypnosis is dangerous

Untrue. It is quiet safe. Hypnosis is safe and natural process.  The actual “hypnotic state” is similar to that of falling asleep. 

One fact that most people are unaware of is that we undergo hypnosis several times in our daily lives. For example, while driving along a highway, very often, people suddenly discover that they had "Lost" consciousness for several minutes. This is actually an example of momentary hypnotism.

You can even download an mp3 file to your Ipod and get started today, no risk, it isn’t dangerous.

Myth#6: One needs special powers to be hypnotize others.

Any average person with the willingness and patience to learn, can master the skills of hypnosis. Like other skills such as playing the piano, or learning a foreign language, some people are "naturals", and become accomplished with little training while others can increase their abilities only through regular practice. A good, confident voice is an advantage, but anyone can learn it with the right training.

Myth#7: Under hypnosis, the subject is totally unaware or blacked out.

For most people, all times during the course of a hypnotic session, you are aware of the words being spoken to you, unless you decide to focus elsewhere. You are aware of what is going on around you.

Although you body is very relaxed, your mind is actually more alert than usual. You can even hear drips of water in a faucet, a sound normally which you wouldn’t notice.

Many people are worried by stage hypnosis and the fact that the subjects, many of whom do ridiculous things during the session, seem to have no knowledge of anything around them. The unfortunate part of such an activity is that it often freighten away those people who could really benefit from hypnotherapy, but are afraid of losing control because they once saw a “stage hypnotist act” make someone act like a chicken.  The person acting like a chicken knew he was acting that way and went along with it at some level – but that is NOT hypnotherapy.

Myth#8: The user might become addicted to hypnosis

You cannot become dependent upon hypnosis because it has no chemical effects on the body – like a medication. However, many people look forward to their hypnosis exercises because they become totally relaxed and awaken refreshed.  It might become a great habit, but never an addiction
