FAQ: Can I Learn Self-Hypnosis To Hypnotize Myself?

Yes.

Self-hypnosis is very similar to meditation, but rather than avoiding all thought as in meditation, with self-hypnosis a person gives themselves positive suggestions or enjoys pleasing visualizations..

In fact, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. So, when a hypnotherapist is hypnotizing you he is simply helping you get yourself into a hypnosis trance, hypnosis is an ability that we all have, and one that we enter in and out of every day.  Being guided by someone else or learning how to guide yourself make is possible to go into a hypnosis trance on demand.

FAQ: Can I Be Hypnotized?

Yes, almost anyone can be hypnotized. If you are willing to utilize the power of your own mind, I can help you, with your permission, to go into hypnosis. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, self-hypnosis is “your ability and power to convince yourself of anything.” The role of the hypnotist is to “un-hypnotize” the client from self-limiting beliefs and negative habits.

According to the American Psychological Association (APA),

People differ in the degree to which they respond to hypnosis. A person’s ability to experience hypnosis can be inhibited by fears and concerns arising from some common misconceptions. Contrary to some depictions of hypnosis in books, movies or television, people who have been hypnotized do not lose control over their behavior. Unless amnesia has specifically been suggested, people remain aware of who they are, where they are, and remember what transpired during hypnosis. Hypnosis makes it easier for people to experience suggestions, but it does not force them to have these experiences.

Anybody who wants to experienced hypnosis, deep relaxation or trance, will. If a person does not want to, for any reason, they will not go into a state of deep relaxing trance (i.e. hypnosis).
