How Hypnosis Work - Mechanism Behind Hypnosis


I have always wanted to know what the heck is hypnosis and why it works. My curiosity has to lead me to do some reading on this subject.

Firstly, many experts believe hypnosis is a very powerful technique. As it turns out, many people have been using hypnosis to change a negative belief. When put to good use, hypnosis can be used to help us achieve our goals. On a more serious note, hypnosis is used to treat emotional problems and can also be used to alleviate a large range of medical conditions.

One of the most common usages of hypnosis is to cure the habit of smoking. Smokers have tried many ways to quit their habit and hypnosis seems to be working for them.

A person going through hypnotherapy usually does so with the help of a professional hypnotist. The good news is, a hypnotherapist can also show us how to practice self-hypnosis in order to achieve a seemingly infinite variety of personal goals. Imagine how much money we will save on self-help books if we can hypnotise ourselves to work relentlessly towards our dreams!

So How Does Hypnosis Works?

In a simple term, it works by putting us into a trance. A lot of people have some misconception of being in a trance, myself included.

Being in a trance state is actually quite common in our daily lives. A good example of being in a trance is when we are driving a car or watching a television show. Our mind is totally engrossed in it.

Even though we are in a trance state, we are completely aware of our surroundings. When we are in a trance muse, our sub-conscious mind is very susceptible to suggestions. It is these suggestions that influence our conscious mind, therefore, dictating our actions.

Are there any dangers associated with hypnosis?

As with anything in life, hypnosis does carry some element of risk. As long as the person performing the hypnosis is properly qualified and operates within a professional code of conduct and ethics, there shouldn’t be anything we should be worried about.
