I believe you are never too old to learn new things. I felt I needed to add some new healing techniques to accommodate the needs of today’s people. So I added Ho’oponopono, Hypnosis, NLP, and Clearing Limited Beliefs.
There have been so many misconceptions attached to hypnosis, and I can assure you. No one has ever been hurt by going into the state of hypnosis. We go into hypnosis all the time. Hypnosis is a state of heightened suggestibility (ability to accept things at a subconscious or unconscious level). Our minds have a protective function on every level to reject any suggestion that we would never agree to or sounds dangerous, or would hurt us in any way. In fact, we would typically emergy from hypnosis.
Did you know that you have already experienced hypnosis many times throughout your life? Hypnosis is just like the state you have been after driving your car for a long distance. Its not that you are oblivious to everything, you are just tuned out of all the important stimuli and totally focused on the road. If something were to happen, which would require your attention, such as a car passing you, your body and mind would be able to properly respond. And if you chose to notice the beautiful scenery or anything else you may be driving past, you are in control and can. “You may be totally aware of everything that is said and that is perfectly OK because you are still in a state of hypnosis.
Hollywood has made up all kinds of things about hypnosis which were designed to sell movie tickets. Some of those misconceptions would lead moviegoers to believe that hypnosis was some kind of magic power and that a hypnotist would have total control over a person he had in a state of hypnosis, or that someone could become “stuck in hypnosis.” None of this is true, Hypnosis is a consensual state, he or she must want to be hypnotized. Millions of hypnosis sessions have been conducted and no one has ever been stuck in hypnosis. Anyone of normal intelligence, who is willing to follow suggestions can be hypnotized and benefit from hypnosis. The lightest state of hypnosis is Alpha. It is easily achieved. It is the state you are now in reading this; therefore to say that you can not be hypnotized is to misunderstand the nature of the hypnotic state. Since you are up to 200 times more suggestible even while you are in the lightest state of Alpha.
