There are many hypnosis myths. One is that hypnosis puts a person’s mind in to a hyper-attentive state where it becomes very open to suggestion. This makes it so a person in this state does things that they wouldn’t normally do, and is one of the reasons why hypnosis stage shows are so popular as the guests are told to do strange and bizarre things. But that’s not really true. Hypnosis can’t make you do things you don’t want to do.

But hypnosis can be a powerful ally in your weight loss program. Most people know that the three key factors to losing weight are to eat healthy food, to eat smaller portions and to take regular exercise. Some of us try crash diets and for several weeks, restricting our calorie intake. This can make it appear like you’re losing a lot of weight. Unfortunately not only is this an unhealthy way to lose weight (because you are mostly losing muscle mass rather than fat) it also causes a yo-yo effect where gradually you go back to your old eating habits and end up even bigger than you were before.

Hypnosis is commonly defined as “An artificially induced trance state resembling sleep, characterized by heightened susceptibility to suggestion.” There are two terms that further define hypnosis. These are derived from the ways by which hypnosis is performed. The first is hetero-hypnosis. This is where a hypnotist induces a state of being in trance to the subject to help them become open to suggestions. The second is auto-hypnosis where the hypnotic state is self-induced.

Around 1841, Scottish surgeon James Braid coined by the term “Neuro-hypnotism” which is derived from the term nervous sleep. The actual word hypnosis is derived from the Greek word hypnos meaning sleep. This was because of the misconception that a person in hypnosis was actually sleeping.

Contrary to the original theory that hypnosis is a form of unconsciousness resembling sleep, contemporary research suggests that it is actually a wakeful state of focused attention and heightened suggestibility, with diminished peripheral awareness. Today hypnotism is generally presumed to make a person go into a state of reduced consciousness while remaining awake. While in a hypnotic trance most subjects are extremely open to positive suggestions while achieving a high level of relaxation.

If we follow this definition of hypnosis, that of being in a trance-like state, or intensely focusing on a particular activity or subject and tuning out almost everything else internally, we can say that we all experience a level of hypnosis everyday. Let’s look at some examples.

When you have difficulty sleeping for a long period of time your life can become can be very frustrating. If you are having trouble falling asleep and/or staying asleep, you probably are more than a little sick of being irritable, tired of feeling sleepy all the time, and too exhausted to think straight. If this is happening to you it can seem too difficult to find a solution on your own.

Over time your anxiety about not sleeping will build and your difficulty sleeping can become a sleep disorder. When this happens often enough, panic can result as one single solitary night of having difficulty sleeping. This turns into a whole month of having trouble falling asleep and staying asleep. Then, when you wake up in the middle of the night, your anxiety about not sleeping contributes to a bigger and bigger cycle of having trouble falling back to sleep or staying asleep for more than just a short period of time.

If you are having this type of difficulty sleeping, and having anxiety about developing a sleep disorder, the first thing you need to think about is why you’re not sleeping soundly through the night. A good method to help you overcome your trouble falling asleep is by removing any exterior distractions, such as the alarm clock light glowing in your face, noise from outside traffic, or a pet that routinely crawls in and out of your bed, waking you up every couple of hours.

Since I’m a hypnotist many people ask me how hypnosis works. Recent innovations in science have been instrumental in helping us figure out what happens in our brains during a hypnosis session.

You might already know that your brain puts out different electrical signals for different mental states. These different electrical signals happen when your brain is agitated, alert, in varying stages of relaxation, or asleep. Scientists have learned which areas of the brain control which functions, and can also determine which parts of the brain are more active at any one time.

Extensive testing by these scientists on people in a hypnotic state has shown us the following:
