Myth 1:   In The State of Hypnosis You Are Helpless

While in the Hypnoidal State the client is not powerless or paralyzed. The client is aware of where they are and what they are doing at all times. They can challenge the authority of the Hypnotist or Hypnotherapist at any time. The client can choose to open their eyes and leave the hypnoidal state at any moment.

Myth 2:   You Can Become Stuck In A State of Hypnosis

No one ever gets stuck in hypnosis. The client can choose to leave hypnosis at any time. If your hypnotherapist were to leave the room and fail to return, the client may fall asleep for a brief moment or simply open their eyes after not hearing the voice of the hypnotherapist. However, if an emergency should occur the client would recognize the urgency of the situation and return to full alertness.

Myth 3:   Hypnosis is Esoteric, Mystical, Supernatural or Comes From "Black Magic" Not of GOD

Much of what is thought to be true about hypnosis comes from what we’ve seen in movies or read in fictions which are seldom based upon factuality. The Hypnoidal state is actually a natural state of mind which everyone experiences multiple times daily (check out our page on What is Hypnosis). Hypnosis has nothing to do with magic, wizardry and or the occult, while there are some that consider their result (after experiencing a Hypnotherapy Session) magical, only because the negative things they were dealing with vanished within a short time.

Myth 4:   Hypnotherapist Has Special Mystical or Magical Power

Hypnotherapists have no special or Mystical powers. However, the competently trained hypnotherapist is able to use this knowledge to guide the client into a state of hypnosis, through the use of different types of induction. Once the Hypnoidal State is achieved, the hypnotherapist will then use different therapeutic techniques to affect positive change in that client's life.

Myth 5:   The Hypnotherapist Has Full Control of Your Mind and Body


Hypnosis requires voluntary participation on the part of the client. The hypnotherapist can never make you surrender your own will or make you do anything that is outside your moral code. Usually, a person in the hypnoidal state already determines his/her own level of participation in the process. Therefore, if a suggestion given is unacceptable, it will simply be rejected and will usually cause the client to instantly come out of hypnosis.

Myth 6:   The People Who Get Hypnotized Are Weak Minded

The opposite is actually true. Hypnosis requires intelligence, the capability to focus, concentrate and to create vivid imagery within the mind. Motivation and cooperation are also necessary for optimum success. The weak-minded will struggle to focus, struggle to concentrate and struggle to create vivid imagery within their mind. This does not mean they cannot be hypnotized, but only that it may take them longer to enter a deep state of hypnosis.

Myth 7:   After Emerging From The State of Hypnosis You Won’t Remember Anything

While amnesia can occur in very rare cases, people generally remember everything that occurred while they were hypnotized. However, hypnotherapy can have a significant effect on memory. Posthypnotic amnesia can lead an individual to forget certain things that occurred before or during hypnosis. However, this effect is generally limited and only temporary. The removal of memory attached to an event in the past is recognized by most professionals within the field as unethical

Myth 8:   Hypnosis Can Be Used As A Truth Serum

In the Hypnoidal State, you will only reveal what you choose. It is possible to edit or lie while in a state of hypnosis. If this were possible there would be no need for courts, law enforcement would simply hypnotize the suspect, to tell the truth, or confess.

Myth 9:   Not Everyone Can Be Hypnotized

The Hypnoidal state is a natural yet altered state of awareness that bypasses the Critical Faculty while selective thinking is maintained. As we get immersed in a movie or a book and begin to feel all the emotional feelings intended by the writer or you become so lost in thought that you did not hear the conversation in front of you, you are in a state of hypnosis. Hypnosis is a state of mind which everyone experiences multiple times daily. Please check out our page on “What is Hypnosis”.

Myth 10:   The Strong-Minded Are Not Easily Hypnotized

The strong-minded are those who are intelligent, with the capability to focus, concentrate and to create vivid imagery within their minds. This is what it takes to easily go to a deep state of hypnosis. A person may choose not to allow themselves to be induced into hypnosis, by not following the suggestions of the Hypnotherapist due to fear. Perhaps of being controlled or simply the fear of the unknown. Once this fear is overcome the client can then be induced into hypnosis
