Hypnotism


http://www.dreamsemantics.com/2009/05/hypnotism/

Hypnotism is the act of hypnosis itself; the person inducing hypnosis is therefore called as a hypnotist. This person has the ability to alter consciousness either of someone else’s or his own self. Hypnosis is also used for therapeutic purposes when needed. Hypnotherapy is applied to alleviate pain or for treating long-standing addiction such as alcoholism, drug addiction and cigarette smoking.

When a person is in a hypnotic state, he or she is open to suggestions. It is when your mind enters an altered state of consciousness similar to going in a trance or zoning out. Within this state, your body is unbelievably relaxed and you are less critical of the things around you; the mind is now free of clutter and distractions making you able to focus on things you need to do. The problem with hypnosis is that if induced for longer periods of time or if wrongly facilitated by another person, it can affect the mind permanently leading to amnesia.

Self hypnosis is also possible if you know how. You can induce hypnosis to your own mind if you need to relax or calm down. The basics of self-hypnosis are comparable to meditation although these two are not similar in nature; sometimes, effects to a person are alike as well.

hypnosis is something you wouldn’t want to experiment on especially if you are not trained for it. hypnosis can also be used for knowing your past life, I have heard that on a talk show last week.
