Hypnosis is still often associated with "mysteries" and "magic".
Most of us learnt about hypnosis from TV shows. But this was just a show, not the real hypnosis we are talking about.
There are lots of people who still believe that everyone loses his will the moment he becomes hypnotized, To put it blankly: while under hypnosis you are totally aware of your surroundings and you can do whatever you want, though you are opened on hypnotherapist's positive suggestions (but only because you want it).
Another common myth is believing that while under hypnosis you go into some amnesia-like state and you can't remember what happened during the session. Nothing is further from the truth. Of course there is still some people that are able to drift away completely, but most of us will remember every word said during the session.
The conception of hypnosis that is able to create a hypnotic state without your consent is also false. You have to be a wiling patient to let hypnosis work. As soon as the hypnotherapist starts telling you the positive suggestions, you have to be willing to accept them or the hypnosis will never work.
Hypnotic trance exists in many different forms every day. Sometimes it is recognized (hypnotherapy, rituals, or dance), another time it goes unnoticed (daydreaming or irrational fears to list a few). At that point we are "lost" to the outside world.
Thanks to hypnosis - hypnotic state of total relaxation and isolation from the outside world hypnotherapist is able to help the patient to overcome fears, stop smoking, overeating and many more other problems preventing to live normally...
Your instincts try to help you out, but sometimes they've just learned the wrong response. So your instincts may have learned to produce anxiety when it's not actually helpful - such as during public speaking, dating or socializing.
Usually we do not really hear anyone saying that they consciously decided to bring on a panic attack or a blush - these things just happened instinctively. So for 'hypnosis', think 'instinctive programming'. You can understand why you have a problem, but if you want the problem to disappear, it's your unconscious responses that ultimately need to change.
Everyone is individual and unique.
The hypnotherapist job is to help the client re-establish his/her connection with his/her inner resources and to develop a rapport between the conscious and the unconscious mind and the wisdom of the unconscious mind, and that people have all the resources necessary to make changes inside themselves will do the rest.
The only goal in hypnotising people is to help them performing to the best of their potential.
