Doctors these days will reveal to us that there are some types of things that we are suffering from which can be fully healed or normalized through hypnosis. Addiction to drugs, alcohol and cigarettes are among those where the process had been successfully carried through. If you are suffering from a problem which may be treated through hypnosis, would you be willing to go through it?

You may call it a trick if you wish to. However, the ones who are doing this are professional medical doctors who have had a special training on this hypnosis thing. Most will advise, the one who is going through the process, to have someone trusted along with them during the treatments. It is important to have full knowledge on what the doctor has been doing to the patient during the entire procedure because, the patient goes into a state similar to a deep slumber.

@trinidad: I would definitely agree with this. That way if the hypnotist started to do anything unprofessional or unrelated to the treatment, the hynotized person would have help. @Edna: Some people may use it as a trick to entertain, and I'd stay away from those for sure. But it is no trick. It is very real. It puts the mind of one person very much under the influence of another person. In my study on the subject I learned that a person cannot be hypnotized against his will, not made to do anything that is totally against his values -- like killing someone-- while he is hynotized. But the trick here is that some people may be fooling themselves as to their true values. Let's say a person is really quite greedy, but knows stealing is wrong, so he doesn't steal because he doesn't want to risk getting caught. Then under hypnosis, the hypnotist plants the suggestion that at a certain time and place he will steal a certain object that he really would like to have and tells him how to do it. It is very likely that person would do it, because he doesn't really have any moral scruples about stealing -- he just is afraid of getting caught. If a trusted friend were present, he could stop the session right there and demand the hypnotist change the suggestion and bring the person back to consciousness. But no hypnotist would probably dare to pull anything funny if there were a witness there.

i think i would like to be able to do this to people myself and be done to me, especially if it would help me see clearly why i am feeling so low, and maybe throught this i could assess myself and find answers as well.

Yes, the process is actually a good process to unveil your inner self. That self which you fail to understand because, the experience took place while you were still a baby. Unearthing the subconscious is very easily done through hypnosis.

I have been hypnotized and I've hypnotized my friends. I went to a dentist who hypnotized me instead of using pain killers while he was working on me. With my friends it was just for fun. I was in high school and I did it on my lunch hour. I'd been reading books about it and my friends and I were curious. This didn't go on for long because when I told my mom about it she told me it's very dangerous in the hands of non-professionals, and she gve me some examples of innocent mistakes an amateur can make and wouldn't know how to handle. So I obeyed her and quit doing it. Since then, I've decided I would not undergo hypnosis again myself. By letting someone else put thngs in your mind you leave yourself open to powers you may not understand or be able to control. A lot depends on who is doing the hypnotizing, what they believe, and what they put their faith in. I would prefer not to take chances.

Yes, indeed, he is creepy. I hope that I will never have the chance at all to meet someone like that.

I've had hypnosis to try and stop me smoking, but it didn't work. I think for hypnosis to dig deep and 'stick', the person undergoing it has to completely give themselves up to it and maybe be a bit suggestible? I think the less suggestible a person is, the less likely they will be someone who benefits from hypnosis.

I agree with you, celtic. Hypnosis can only be effective if the guy who performed the hypnotism was successful enough to get to the subconscious of the one he is hypnotizing. And not all can do this effectively. I am sad for you though that it didn't work. However, it simply means that you are a person whose subconscious is not that easy to explore and take hold of through hypnotism.

Thanks for the reply, and you're very right. Some hypnotists can squeeze through people's barriers, and others can't. I think I put up too much of a resistance to things like that. Have a good day! :-)

It depends on the kind of problem if I would agree with hypnosis. Many people suffer from what happend in their past and they can't remember anymore. Some say this even includes their birth, the time they were still in the whomb or the life they had before this one. Sometimes hypnosis can help to get over problems you have but it also can make your life worse. There is a reason why we remember some bad memories and do forget others. If you are not able to cope with what you find out about yourself it's better to let it rest and accept your life the way it is and accept yourself the way you are.

I am very much interested in the subject "Hypnosis"- controlling ones mind by another person. Self hypnosis are used for healing purposese. But how one goes in the state of Hypnotism?

I am not talking of hypnotism for fun. Here, the doctor delves into the person's mind in order to know what has gone wrong. What has caused the problem. Then, at the proper time, the doctor will give a suggestion to the patient that will make the patient know and accept through his subconscious mind the best thing to do so the person will be finally rid of his problem.

I am not sure if I would do it or not. It all depends on what it is going to be used for. I would hope that it helped me though.

I believe that it can do a lot of good when done on a person who really deserves to go through it. There a point in the documentation where they showed a very much troubled person who truly got cured after some sessions of treatment. It is only through hypnosis that what he went through from his young age until the present can be made known. If I am the relative of that person, I would also allow him to go through hypnosis to make sure that he does not go mentally deranged later in his life.

There were difficult moments in my life, where i was willing to try hypnosis.It was not only to rid myself of my problems but also to self hypnotize myself to improve my performance in various aspects of my life.If I was suffering from a problem and hypnosis could find a solution,I'd definitely give it a try.But we have to find a good hypnotist who will make us find solutions to our problems.

Self hypnosis, that might be a little too risky to do. Perhaps auto suggestion or self conditioning will be a much better one. I am not well informed about these ones though. I have been told to telling yourself over and over about the need to change something in yourself or to make oneself work harder to achieve a goal, is a type of hypnosis. Actually, I usually do this to myself and I make it a habit to do this in my prayers, too. Asking God so that I will be brave and strong enough to work for those things which I must have and those that I must change within myself.
