18 Myths About Hypnosis
Hypnosis is unnatural and artificial.
Hypnosis is a natural, yet altered state of mind. We enter and exit the state spontaneously many times throughout the day. Have you ever read a very interesting book and got so engaged in it, that you completely lost the sense of time? Or have you ever caught yourself daydreaming so vividly that you could not believe it could happen so spontaneously with your eyes open? These are all examples of a trance state very similar to hypnosis. The difference is that with hypnotherapy it is induced at will in order to make intended beneficial changes.
