Learn the Secrets of Hypnosis

For many people, hypnosis is steeped in mystery and intrigue. It is as if this phenomenon is a part of the human experience and we are aware of it, but apart from shows on television or on the stage it remains vague and mysterious. Collectively we all know something about it, but its secrets are hidden from us and how it works remains a mystery.

And now we have a choice: We are either going to solve the mystery, or are we going to find a way to find out what can be found. The secrets to a deeper mystery awaits...

And once we start digging for secrets, we will be surprised to find out how easy it is to access those secrets. In fact, it is as simple as attending one of the upcoming workshops in Pretoria. By Mastering the Power of Self-Hypnosis, you will learn the deepest secrets of this ancient technique and its mysteries will be revealed. In doing so, you will learn one of the most useful tools available to man to achieve his goals.

You may learn how to relax deeply. You may learn to use daydreaming for your advantage. You may learn how to use the power of words to achieve what you want and get what you ask for. And you will receive a powerful book to help you even more by giving you extra information.

By the end of this one-day session, you will have learned the deepest secrets of self-hypnosis and how to powerfully use it in your own life. And you will start to change your life for the better in a very short space of time.

What was once hidden is now revealed! And you too can learn and use these secrets to your advantage! By attending any of these one-day workshops on any of the following dates, you are making a date with destiny:

Choose between 5 May, 26 May, 23 June and 30 June, because on these dates small groups of secret-seekers will gather in Villieria in Pretoria (South Africa). They will meet at 09h00 and spend the day together, sharing a light vegetarian meal and refreshments, as the deepest secrets are revealed to them in a practical way. By 15h30 of that same day, they will depart enlightened, empowered to take charge of their own lives and achieve their goals using this powerful method.

Are you going to be one of those people? Are you ready for the truth? Are you ready for it to set you free? The cost is miniscule compared to the wealth of practical knowledge that you will take back with you. And for the total of R 1350 you will also receive the handbook and a practical workbook, a use-at-home CD to get you started, as well as the aforementioned meal.

How does it feel to be Hypnotised?

Is there a specific feeling that you are supposed to experience while under hypnosis? How do you know that you have been hypnotised? What does it feel like to be in hypnosis?

I run a full-time hypnosis practice in Pretoria, and see my fair share of clients who say that they have been to a hypnotist before, but that the hypnotist couldn’t “get them under” and they left disappointed, feeling they were not hypnotised.

Some people don’t believe they were hypnotised because they felt in control the whole time, as if they could open their eyes at any moment. Others come out of a hypnotic experience and the first words they utter are: ”I don’t feel I was hypnotised. I wasn’t asleep!”

I have even had clients who have come for a series of sessions and were in the process of making profound changes in their lives, saying that they still did not think they were hypnotised, because the experience was nothing like it was supposed to be on based on their perceptions of what hypnosis is, as presented on television and liv hypnosis shows.

It is so very important that the client’s misconceptions of hypnosis are dealt with during the first session. The more the client understands what hypnosis really is, how it works and how to use it for success, the better results will be. 

First of all, hypnosis is not sleep. You are indeed awake during hypnosis, hearing everything that is being said, aware of everything around you. Your senses may even sharpen. If you were to sleep during a hypnosis session, it would be a very expensive nap!

And yes, you are in control during the hypnosis experience. In fact, it is an experience you create on your own, just by following suggestions. In other words, if you choose to, you could open your eyes whenever you want to. You could choose not to follow the suggestions, and do something completely different. In other words, for hypnosis to take place, you have to give your complete consent. You have to agree to follow the suggestions and do exactly what is said, which means you will engage in a process that is for your highest good and benefit. In short, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.

Furthermore, if you have been for hypnosis before, and you didn’t feel you were being “put under”, you are absolutely right. Nobody can “put you under”, except perhaps if you were wrestling. Yet just because you think nothing happened does not mean that you did not experience hypnosis. Perhaps you were just not well informed about what to expect.

So is there in fact any specific way you ought to feel during a hypnosis session? Indeed there are two things that need to happen. The first is relaxation, the second is concentration. When used in combination, these two “feelings” create an ideal opportunity for subconscious change to occur. Through the use of positive suggestion and other processes, you can make profound positive changes to yourself and your life by just relaxing and concentrating at the same time.
With the assistance of a skilled hypnosis practitioner, you will quickly learn what to do to get to that point of the process that we call trance. By experiencing the process a few times, it becomes easier and easier to enter the trance state, because you start learning how to do it. The more you do it, the better you get at it, the more hypnotic “feelings” you may experience, like a heavy feeling in the limbs, or a feeling of being both detached from and inside your body at the same time. Perhaps you may not even remember some parts of the session and what was said, as your subconscious mind takes more responsibility than your conscious mind.

The best advice I can give is that you do not bring your preconceived ideas to the session. Rather open yourself up to a wonderful new experience, with which you can change your life for the better. Choose a capable hypnosis practitioner and ask questions, before and after the session, so that you understand what you are supposed to do to experience the hypnosis process.

And remember that it is an experience unique to you. There is no right and wrong way, there is only your way. If you are looking for a feeling, perhaps you might consider a massage.
