Every person in the world has experienced stress. It affects men and women, rich or poor, young and old. Many try to reduce or eliminate stress from their life, but attempting this on your own may only bring temporary results. Using hypnotic techniques could be the answer to reducing your stress level.

How hypnosis controls stress

Most people can tell you instantly about some three to five matters in their life that are currently causing them stress. This demonstrates three important facts. First, everyone is under some degree of stress. The second important issue is that they know what is causing them stress. The third, and perhaps most important element, is that they want to reduce their stress level or eliminate it entirely.

Hypnosis has been called a state of hyper suggestibility. That means that while in the hypnotic state your mind is open to receive positive suggestions that will allow you to change the very way you respond to various situations in life.

It is impossible and undesirable to remove all stress from your life, but it is possible to change the way we respond to situations. To help you understand how we can change your perception of a given thought, or action, read about the story of Deep Snow.


Deep Snow

It seems that so often we allow outside stimulates to rule our lives. We have all heard people say that “stress pushed me back to smoking,” or “the kids made me eat.” It is a lot easier to use another person or event as the excuse for failure, rather than accepting the fact that we have the ability to change the way we respond to any situation or event.

A few years back we had a heavy snowstorm. One of the neighbors was out trying to get his car out of the driveway and was cursing up a storm. Another neighbor walked out on her porch and said, “I’m not going to work today, but there is a good book that I want to finish reading.” There was also a young boy on the street that looked at all that snow and said, “Thanks, God!” as he jumped into the snow. Each of these three people encountered the same stimulant, because the snow wasn’t any deeper on one side of the street than the other.

One person viewed it as a tragedy, another thought, “Oh, well”, and the last one viewed it as a blessing.  You too can change the way you view a situation or circumstance to ensure your total success. You have the ability to change the way you perceive events, people and circumstances. You can choose to feel out of control and stressful or you can decide to take back control of your life. Stress cannot control you.

Imagine how wonderful it would be to have control over how you respond to stressful situations. With the use of hypnosis there is no person, thought, idea, memory, feeling, or sensation that could control your life. My clients constantly comment on how much they enjoy being in control of their life.

Once you take control of your life with hypnosis, you may have trouble wondering how you ever got by without it.

Myths about hypnosis

There are many myths about hypnosis that have been created from movies, novels, and TV shows. Listed below are the four most common myths and misconceptions people have about hypnosis.

1. Myth: A person under hypnosis is out of control. Fact: The exact opposite is true. You don’t lose control while under hypnosis. The hypnotist is just a guide leading you into a state that you are capable of achieving.

2. Myth: While you are hypnotized you can be forced to tell the truth. Fact: A person could lie under hypnosis. With hypnosis you are aware of everything around you. You have the choice to answer or not answer a question. You also have the ability to lie or to tell the truth. You are always in control

3. Myth: There are certain people that cannot be hypnotized. Fact: Any person of normal intelligence can easily be hypnotized. It has been proven that a strong willed person actually goes into a hypnotic state quicker than a weak minded person.

4. Myth: You might get stuck in hypnosis. Fact: It is impossible to ever be stuck in a hypnotic state. It seems a little silly to think about anyone getting stuck in hypnosis. Hypnosis has been around since the 1700s and no one has ever been stuck in hypnosis.
