Hypnosis Myth Buster # 2 – You can be hypnotized against your will.
Now I must admit that there have been moments when I’ve wanted to be able to silence a screaming child or a friend or relative who is just going on and on and on about something by walking up to them and saying “Sleep!”, but it just doesn’t work that way.
Hypnosis is a 100% consent state! You MUST be willing to go into trance and I must have your trust and permission to help you to get there.
People volunteer to be in a stage show. People voluntarily agree to work with me in my office. They want the change they seek and agree to let me assist them in getting there.
So, even though the movies would like you to believe that I can look you in the eyes and out you under some magical spell to bend you to my will – that child will still be screaming and my friend will still be going on and on and on.
Next week, we’ll continue this conversation with another myth – You’ll make me do something I don’t want to.
