Hypnosis-Can You Be Hypnotized?

Can I Be Hypnotized?

This is probably the most asked question that I get as a full time practicing Hypnotist. Well that, and how much does it cost. I’ll address both these questions in this blog post. And I’ve got a little extra as well. I have a video example of one of my client’s first hypnosis session. It’s very revealing as to what to expect in your very first hypnosis session with me. Maybe it’ll even dispel some of those myths, and fears you might be holding onto that have prevented you from calling me to begin your change.

You’ve probably read or heard that hypnosis is a natural state, and it is. It is a state of trance that almost all of us are familiar with. And I could easily say that all, not almost all, because if you were not able to go into this trance state that we’re discussing, you wouldn’t be able to read this post as well. So I’ll amend my last statement to “all”. Yes, and that means you. You can, and do go into hypnotic trance every day of your life. There are many misconceptions and myths surrounding hypnosis. What it is, how it affects us, and what can and cannot be accomplished using it. There are some groups that would like to keep that confusion going. That way you won’t search for the answers to your problems with tools other than what they’re selling or providing. That’s fine for them, but not so fine for you.

The Truth About Hypnosis

The truth about hypnosis and the hypnotic state is that you own it, nobody else. No one can sell you your own hypnotic state. They can’t sell you something that you already own. As a hypnotist, I can show you how to use your hypnotic state for your benefit. You probably already know how to use the hypnotic state incorrectly, so I’ll probably be showing you how to use it correctly. This education and training is only a part of what I do as a hypnotist, working with you to improve your life. With this information you will be in a position to take back control over your behaviors. Behaviors that seem to be outside of your control so far.

How Much Does It Cost?

I get this question a lot, probably because most people don’t know what to ask. They are so used to comparing purchases by price that this becomes their tool for comparison. Going to see a hypnotist is comparatively inexpensive. Especially if you compare it to what your problem has been costing you in real dollars over the lifespan that your problem has existed. Many people see a hypnotist to stop smoking or for weight loss. Smokers spend thousands of dollars a year on just the cost of cigarettes. There are of course other additional costs associated to smoking cigarettes, most of these are never tallied up in the total cost of smoking. But they are real costs as well. Increased insurance costs, medical expenses, housing costs, pay scale loss (being passed over for jobs), lost sales (if your income involves selling of any kind), and many, many more. There are also social costs, self-esteem loss, confidence loss, and many other emotional strains associated with smokers.

I could easily make a case for solid monetary expenses that are being borne by the person with any behavioral problem that has been ongoing for years. Think of the added expense associated with weight problems. Aside from the cost of cigarettes, all the other costs are relevant. And people who are having problems with their weight usually eat more food than they need. This is an added expense. I also think that fat people are going to be the new “smokers” of the future. They’ll be ostracized and shunned, and pressured into changing. The way that smokers are today. Especially if universal health care goes into affect. Society will not look kindly on those that are costing them additional money because they are out of control with their behaviors. I’ll be able to write more on that in another post.

When you take an accounting of what your problem truly costs you in dollars and cents, you will see that a series of sessions with a hypnotist is quite affordable in comparison. In addition to saving you money, you just start to feel the freedom and control you wanted most if not all of your life. And it’s hard to put a price on that joy. If you don’t see the benefit of spending money on your own improvement, then you’re probably better off just continuing on the way you are. The change is probably not that important to you. And your own time is probably not that valuable to you or anyone else. Not meaning to be harsh, just realistic.

Not Everyone Can Be Hypnotized

You know how some people have told you that not everyone can be hypnotized? Well that is totally untrue. But it is true that not everyone will get the benefit of being hypnotized. One of the indicators of whether you’ll get the benefit as quickly, or at all, is if you see the value in your own improvement. I have worked with many people who initially appeared to be price sensitive, but after our work claimed that I didn’t charge enough! Now that’s what I call massive value!

So your improvement mentally, spiritually, and physically is well worth the price, time and effort. All you have to do is make the decision to change and choose a knowledgeable and caring hypnotist to work with.

Video Of A First Session

The video I put on this page shows one of my client’s first session. My initial assessment of Genevieve is that she will be a great success in achieving the freedom she desires. She is really responsive and is already experiencing tremendous results in her perception and her feelings even in this very first session. As you will probably see there isn’t anything foreign or strange about doing hypnosis with me. It is just a way of accessing a part of you that wants to help and protect you, but has yet to learn how to do that effectively. I’ll be posting other parts of the work that I am doing with Genevieve.
