Many people are unsure as to how hypnosis “fits” with their faith, values or morals. The fact is that hypnotherapy, in and of itself, does not contradict a person’s faith. The fear which some people have is in fact caused by a misunderstanding of what hypnosis is.
Many people think that hypnosis is some sort of dark power which can take over your mind and make you do things which are contrary to your morals or your faith. This is not the case. Hypnosis will not make you do things that you do not want to do; it does not take over your mind in any dark or sinister way.
Rather, hypnosis is a natural state of relaxation, like meditation. When I say natural, I mean exactly that. You already use hypnosis without even knowing that you do so. You pass through hypnosis as you go to sleep and as you wake up. When using hypnotherapy the only difference is that you are intentionally guiding your mind into that same natural state and utilizing that state to achieve whatever you may wish to.
Hypnosis is anything other than a dark or sinister force. It is an enlightening and enabling state of mind. You may well ask why I say this. At night when you sleep your brain waves change from beta to alpha and theta. When you dream your mind is in fact doing a very important job; that of resolving and unconscious conflicts. Everyone has to dream; if you did not dream you would end up psychotic. The alpha-theta state provides a natural environment in which conflicts can be easily resolved and problems solved.
How many times have you woken in the morning and an answer to something upon which you have been pondering just “pops” into your head? This is an example of how your mind automatically sifts through problems when your brain has shifted into that alpha-theta state and finds the best solutions.
With hypnosis you are intentionally accessing this state of mind. Thus hypnosis is an incredibly powerful tool, allowing access to unconscious thought processes, patterns of behavior and emotions, thereby bringing them within your control. Hypnosis can be used as a powerful and effective therapeutic aid in any area of your life which has a psychological dimension…which, basically, is everything.
When you think of hypnosis in this way, and see it for what it really is, it is clear that it does not contradict your morals or faith. It is simply a tool which enables you to use your mind in an optimal manner.
