Hypnosis FAQ

There are a lot of myths and misconceptions about hypnosis.  Here are the facts!


Text Box: Will I lose consciousness?

No!  Your mind is in a state of being very alert and aware while your body is very relaxed. 

Text Box: Are you in control of my mind or my will?

No! You are always in control of your mind.  All hypnosis is self-hypnosis.  You are the one that allows yourself to be guided into this very relaxed state. You can choose to accept or reject any suggestions at any time. 

Text Box: Will I get stuck in hypnosis?

No!  If the hypnotist left the room, you would either fall asleep or open your eyes feeling alert.  Since you allow yourself to be guided into hypnosis, you also allow yourself to readily come out of hypnosis.

Text Box: Am I gullible/weak-minded if I can be hypnotized?

No!  You have to be totally in control of your mind.  You also must be able to focus and concentrate on the suggestions given in order to be hypnotized. 

Text Box: Is hypnosis dangerous?
Text Box: Will I reveal all my secrets?

No! It is a safe, natural state of mind that we all experience naturally everyday, similar to daydreaming. 

No! You always have a choice about what to reveal or not and whether or not to be truthful or tell a lie.  You are in control.

Life is like a game of cards.  The hand that is dealt you represents determinism; the way you play it is free will.
