LieBusters :: The Truth and Lies of Hypnosis
Hypnosis, also called hypnotherapy or hypnotic, is a state of consciousness involving focused attention characterized by an enhanced capacity for response to suggestion. Being hypnotized is usually characterized by; (a) concentration, (b) relaxation, (c) suggestion, and (d) expectation.
Hypnosis Will Allow Me to Move Mountains: This will not happen. Hypnosis works in a part of the mind that allows you to be open to suggestions that are realistic. It will not give you Super-Human powers.
Hypnosis Will Make Me Vulnerable: When
you hear the word hypnosis, you may picture the
mysterious hypnotist figure popularized in movies, comic books and
television. This ominous, goateed man waves a pocket watch back and
forth, guiding his subject into a semi-sleep, zombie-like state.
Once hypnotized, the subject is compelled to obey, no matter how strange
or immoral the request. Muttering "Yes, master," the subject does the
hypnotist's evil bidding. This popular representation bears little
resemblance to actual hypnotism, of course. In fact, modern
understanding of hypnosis contradicts this conception on several key
points. Subjects in a hypnotic trance are not slaves to their
"masters" -- they have absolute free will.
