Does Hypnotism Work?

This is a question that many people would like to know the answer to. Well I am here to tell you the answer is YES!!!!

How do I know it works?

Well that is easy. I know it works because I have used it and it has worked for me.

What benefits have I gotten for hypnosis?

I was able, through the use of hypnosis, to break lifelong bad habits and I was able to get rid of phobias that really affected my life in negative ways. These were little things like biting my nails. I always bit my nails for as long I can remember and I was ashamed of how my nails would look. Plus it would always look disgusting when I would keep biting my nails in public. I now no longer bite my nails because of hypnosis.

I was also deadly afraid of spiders. I don't know why i was so scared of them. To think that a grown man would be scared of a tiny spider is funny for others but embarrassing for me. Well thanks to hypnosis and the power of hypnotherapy, I am no longer scared of spiders.

By now some of you are wondering how hypnosis actually works.

What hypnosis is all about is putting you into a relax, mediated state so that your mind will be more accepting of ideas. While in this state, you are able to communicate with yourself better in order to help your mind accept the change that is happening. This is called hypnotherapy. Hypnotherapy is an accepted practice that is used by medical practitioners.

What are the benefits of hypnosis?

You can break all sorts of habits. It can help you quit smoking, quit drinking, quit biting your nails, it can help you lose weight, it can help relieve stress, it can help with anxiety, it can help you sleep better at night, and it can help you relax.

You can also you hypnosis to help you deal with phobias that you might have. Phobias like fear of spiders, fear of needles, and fear of flying.

What are the negatives of hypnosis?

Well there really aren't any negatives to trying out hypnosis. It wont damage your brain or body in any way, it wont let someone control you to obey their commands, and it is relatively cheap compared to other self help methods.

If you had any doubts about hypnosis before today, lay them to rest because it does work.

Street Talk

Yes, I agree hypnosis is great and very powerful. Thank you for pointing out that it won't let someone control you. Those of us who have experienced hypnosis understand that we place ourselves in a hypnotic state. It's not something that someone does TO you but rather WITH you. After all, if a therapist says 'close your eyes and breath deeply" and you reply "no", who's controlling the situation? Even under the influence of hypnotic trance a person won't do anything in violation of their personal values. Thanks for sharing!
