Dispelling the Myths Surrounding Hypnosis

Written by Emily Clark

Continued from page 1

Your mind may be guided by a movie, self-hypnosis tape, or hypnotist, but you still haverepparttar power to resist. If you fully believe and acknowledge that you haverepparttar 144565 power to resist any control of emotions, then hypnosis is nothing to fear. Unfortunately, some people seem to give up partial control of their minds because they misunderstand who hasrepparttar 144566 power. Unquestionably, someone can be fooled into believing that he has given up control in some forms of stage hypnosis or other experiments. That is likely what often happens in stage shows. But just because someone was tricked doesnít mean it is right or that it will happen to you that way.

Think about it. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. You arerepparttar 144567 one who allows your mind to be placed into deep states. You arerepparttar 144568 one who hasrepparttar 144569 power to resist any unwanted suggestions. Itís really a misnomer when people say they were hypnotized. What they really mean is that they allowed their mind to be hypnotized or they allowed a hypnotist to give suggestions that they chose to follow.

Just remember that no one controls your mind unless you first grant permission!
