Does Hypnosis Really Work, Even if You’re Skeptical?

It’s probably the question we hear most: Does hypnosis really work?

Actually, it’s more often phrased like this – at least by skeptics: “Hypnosis doesn’t really work, right?” It’s a question filled with a peculiar mix of guarded hope and fear. A lot of the skepticism derives from hypnosis being presented in the media as some carnival side-show where people are made to do embarrassing things to themselves and others.

Reality is that hypnosis really works – even if you don’t believe in it, just like gravity. Why? Because it does not involve trickery or mind control; it’s based on scientific principles of how the mind works.

Skeptical? Here’s a high-level explanation of what’s involved in the hypnosis process.

Orientation to how your mind works. Instead of crystal balls, smoke, and mirrors, your hypnotist will explain how your subconscious negative thoughts affect your conscious behavior. Then we work together to reprogram the subconscious processes that are driving you in a direction you don’t want to go, so that you can create results that match the outcomes you actually desire.

Development of a strategy. While the mind is a fantastic place to explore, it’s not like we’re just wandering aimlessly there. We start with a plan to transform and reprogram the unsupportive thoughts into ones that work with you to create the life you want. You’ll find yourself changing your perceptions of yourself, your conscious thoughts, and the world around you. That makes it easy to develop new behaviors that help you accomplish your goals.

Teaching of relaxation methods. In a stressed-out state, it’s hard to think rationally, to maintain a connection between what you say you want and what you actually do. By learning how to truly relax, you will become better at controlling the trajectory of your thoughts. You’ll learn several ways to calm yourself down and be able to connect back to that serene self you’d rather have directing your steps instead of the frantic you who stays stuck in a rut, driven by all the old programming that’s not helping you move forward.

Evaluation of Results. Your hypnotist should help you determine whether you’re moving forward to the results you desire. With constant evaluation and adjustment, we can refine what we’re doing to ensure maximum results.

Doesn’t sound like hocus pocus after all, does it?
