  • Going into a state of hypnosis is a very normal natural activity.
  • Most people describe hypnosis as a restful state where they are still aware, in control, but very relaxed, much like the twilight time before sleep.
  • A person hypnotized is aware of everything the hypnotist says at all times.
  • Persons under hypnosis will always awaken from hypnosis easily.
  • Persons in hypnosis will remain in control of themselves at all times.
  • No person can be hypnotized without their consent, cooperation and willingness.
  • No one can be made to do anything they are morally opposed to during hypnosis    (in fact most people appear more ethical during hypnosis)
  • Hypnosis is not a miraculous power.
  •  Hypnosis merely enables your mind to access and use your own natural healing and physical abilities, to assist in healing or physical accomplishment.
  • Hypnosis allows your subconscious mind to accept positive suggestions
  • Hypnotic suggestions can change or release unwanted behavior patterns
  • Hypnosis can strengthen any part of your personality or ability that you desire.
  • Hypnosis actually strengthens the will and improves the powers of the mind.
  • All hypnosis is self induced hypnosis, but external suggestion can trigger it.
  • Hypnosis is not like sleep, nor is it like a zombie state or total unconsciousness.
