Are Eye Lids Heavy? Do You Feel Sleepy?

Aug 17, 2007
Do you want to lose weight? Do you want to stop smoking? Do you want a better golf game? Do you want to be more confident? Yes, all this can be yours, and there's more, much more.

Seriously, there is something that can help you achieve any and all of your goals, and its called hypnotism. Of course the moment we hear the word "hypnotism" we get visions of the stereotypical magician, waving a pocket watch in front of a subject and then telling the poor, unsuspecting soul to act like a chicken while the subject's friends die of laughter in the audience - but therapeutic hynotism is chalk to the stage hypnotists cheese.

What exactly is hypnotism? Hypnotism is a natural state of mind created by relaxing the body and mind. This state of relaxation opens up the brain and heightens the senses, making the subject receptive to suggestions. This state of mind is perfectly natural and similar to the one we are in when we are in right before we hit deep sleep. This is called the "alpha state".

Many of us experience the alpha state when we are daydreaming, or so involved in a good book that we totally block out anything else going on around us. Hypnotism can be a very effective tool and is more than a novelty at parties or in shows on the Vegas Strip. Athletes use it to increase their performance in competition, people also use it to overcome bad habits such as overeating or smoking. With hypnotism you are reaching the sub-conscious and speaking directly to it.

Each and every day our sub-conscious is hard at work collecting a vast amount of information from the world around us. The sub-conscious never sleeps, it keeps going through our whole lives picking up on things we usually don't consciously think twice about.

There is no technical difference between being hypnotized and self-hypnosis, and when you get right down to it, either way, we are the only ones who can decide whether or not we will allow ourselves to be hypnotized. Hypnotism is a state of relaxation and those of us who can relax easily are usually the better subjects for hypnotism. One common myth about hypnotism is that the hypnotist can make you say or do anything. What most people don't know is that because the conscious mind is always present, you can not be made to do anything you normally would be unwilling to do.
