The Power Of Hypnosis
Let us first help you understand what hypnosis is by taking you on a brief hypnotizing journey. Don’t worry, it’s going to be easy and anyone can do it, and we promise you will still be alive after this ok?
Now imagine you are lying on a beautiful beach surrounded by nothing but nature. It is 3pm in the afternoon and the weather is absolutely perfect! Not too hot, not too cold, not too sunny, not too windy….everything just feels absolutely right and comfortable.
As you lay on the thin golden sand, you begin to admire how amazing and almost stunning the scenery is. The beautiful blue sky, the sun, the white clouds and best of all, there are no people around you, no buildings, no cars, no roads, no dangerous animals (you get the point), but most importantly no electronics of any sorts and yes, that includes your smartphone.
While enjoying the view, your eyes are getting heavier and heavier. You begin to close your eyes and listen to the soothing sound of the sea, waves splashing onto the shore, then from an open distance came a lovely cool breeze gently touching your face, your hair and your body.
Suddenly, you feel an extreme relaxation…
Something you haven’t quite felt in a while…
In fact, your state of mind is currently so calm and relaxed, it’s almost to the point where you can instantly fall asleep.
Dear friend, if you are currently reading this, congratulations because you just experienced first hand, a piece of what hypnotism is.
Yes…you see, whether a person can be totally relaxed or not, for example during a hypnotherapy session, plays an important key role and is a main contributing factor in determining whether a hypnosis can be performed on the subject successfully or not.
The reason why we said you’ve only just experienced a piece of the big puzzle (an important piece though) is because when you are in a state of real hypnosis, your subconscious mind is alert at the same time. In fact, your mind will be fully focused and nothing in your surroundings can affect you in anyways. This allows your subconscious mind to reach places in your brain that it has never been able to reach before, such as blocks of memories that you never thought existed.
So on one hand, you are totally relaxed while on the other, your mind is alert and ready to function at a heightened level.
During this deep trance like state or otherwise known as hypnotic trance, your personality no longer occupies your thinking and you are no longer bias. Reality becomes nothing more than simple inputs that were agreed by both you and your therapist. At this stage, it is reasonable to say that you have been turned into a “Suggestion Box” and you willingly accept any inputs with full focus and concentration, while the brain is reprogrammed according to individual needs. A good hypnotist can easily hypnotize anyone like yourself into achieving certain goals, such as losing weight and stop smoking.
Why people from different career fields need to use the help of hypnosis in some ways?
We all know that psychologists are professionals in mental disorder. Day in day out, they are dealing with patients with mental health problems or related issues. Hypnosis is often used within this career field because it has been proven to help patients relax for easier diagnoses and treatments. However, did you know that there are many other career types and professions that also requires the assistance of hypnotherapists?
Let’s take a quick look below:
There’s been many cases over the course of history where police have requested help from professional hypnotist to solve criminal cases. In fact, the very first ever documented case was dated all the way back in year 1845, where a psychic was hypnotized, put in a deep sleep and helped solved a crime by revealing images she saw during the trance. However, due to the lack of knowledge in hypnosis and lack of credibility in general, it wasn’t and still is not the best way to solve crimes.
Even though past history have suggested that evidence gained through hypnotising methods are generally not preferred in court or legal proceedings, and is often the last resort for police investigations. It is still a highly worthy approach, and much more credible today in helping witnesses, especially victims to trigger or reach memory blocks which would not be possible otherwise. Hence, we now have forensic hypnosis which is solely used by law enforcement agencies to handle these demands.
These genuinely kind hearted community workers are trained people who have taken special courses that specifically deal with everyday society problems such as family issues, child abuse, unemployment, suicidal individuals with high depression levels and so on. There will be times where these trained social workers will encounter moments where they will have no choice, but to refer the person they are caring for, to psychiatrists where he or she will be assessed for mental status and wellbeing. It is then the job of the psychiatrist to determine whether to use a medical, psychological or hypnotic approach in treating the patient.
Illnesses are not always physical in nature, especially mental illness which can never be detected by medical equipment or be treated simply by paying a visit to the local doctor. There’s been many medical cases throughout the history where patients has been provided with the wrong treatment because the doctor simply did not have enough sufficient evidence, guidelines and knowledge to diagnose mental health problems. However, thanks to the advanced medical research, science and technology we have today. Doctors are now able to determine mental illness much easier than before and can accurately refer mentally ill patients to psychologists and psychiatrists for proper treatment.
There’s also been times where a patient may not necessarily have a physical injury, nothing that can be detected by x-rays, mri scans etc, but because the patient still insists on pain and soreness in affected areas, the doctors are often left scratching their head wondering where things have gone wrong? This is often a case of psychological factor tricking the brain into thinking that the injury is still there, even though it may have already been healed many weeks, months, even years ago. This is most common in victims who have been through dramatic events or near death traumas, in which they will be referred to psychologists who may then conduct a series of hypnosis treatment using different types of induction and suggestion techniques. During the course of hypnotherapy, a safe way will eventually be found to get inside this patient’s mind and effectively heal or remove this imaginary injury.
Counseling service in general have a team of highly trained professionals who are certified to help people deal with difficult personal and relationship problems. While similar to a social worker, having a career in counselling is not easy at all. They are not only hired to listen to clients needs, but to also guide them to a solution by offering suggestions such as simple strategies, rehabilitation enrollment programs, anger management courses to hypnotherapy treatment. Client’s mental wellbeing is their number one priority and careful approaches are taken to help them cope with mix emotions ranging from mild stress to serious mental conditions such as deep depression and having suicidal thoughts, in which they are usually referred to a higher level psychiatric treatment.
Here are some of the most common types of counselling services:
- Family dispute
- Family relationships
- Domestic violence
- Marriage councelling for single and couples
- Divorce and seperation
- Work and money matters
- Drugs and alcohol addiction
- Gambling problem
- And many more…
As you can see from the above, these are serious issues that could ultimately destroy an individual or worst an entire family. An experienced counselor will know how to approach different client’s base on their life experience, personality and situation. They know very well not to intervene with their client’s thinking and instead will only listen to their inner feelings, allowing them to release their anger without giving any personal opinions. Once their clients has enough trust, recommendations can then be slowly induce through the use of subliminal hypnotizing techniques, messages or scripts such as ones we often see in conversation hypnosis, making their clients realize that there are in fact many alternative options and choices in life.
While their job title is different to a psychologist, their roles are actually very similar. Their clients are mainly people who are at a stage of high anxiety level and are seeking help outside of their family and friends circle. These people knows that they need help and they need it fast before things become worst. Through both paid and non-profit organizations that offers free counselling service, anyone can seek help and guidance for resolutions to their problems and depending on the circumstances, a hypnotherapist may also be brought in to assist in the healing process.
Psychology is all about working with the human mind and that’s why many psychologists today are highly trained to use hypnosis for clinical purposes. According to the American Psychological Association, they have openly recognized and accredited that the power of hypnotherapy can effectively heal patients with high anxieties, unnatural mood swings, pain, as well as quitting bad habits such as smoking.
Mental disorder is a very sophisticated and serious subject because the human mind is still a mystery in the science and medical field. Even though we are yet to fully discover all the different types of mental illnesses, but thanks to the history of monitoring, research and study of human behaviors, we have been able to identify many unique and abnormal patterns, and categorized them into different types of disorders based on their symptoms. This has allowed future clinicians and therapists to easily diagnose and treat many known psychological disorders such as:
- Anterograde Amnesia
- Binge Eating Disorder
- Bipolar Disorder
- Diogenes Syndrome
- Ganser Syndrome
- Major Depressive Episode
- Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
- Sleep Disorder
- and more…
When a mentally ill patient goes to a psychotherapy visit, it is the psychologist’s job to ensure that the patient is in a relaxing state of mind, especially at the beginning of the therapy session. This is often done by the use of instrument hypnosis or by playing relaxation music in which the client is seated in a comfortable position, usually on a recliner inside a stress free room for easier analysis or examination.
This profession is very similar to a psychologist, except these mental health doctors are usually more inclined to use a medical treatment approach and is legally authorized to prescribe prescription medicines for psychosis related treatment. However, it is not uncommon for them to turn to hypnosis as an alternative in treating their clients, especially with the increased recognition and success rate throughout the last 50 years.
