  2. 2. Different Kinds of Modern HypnosisOver the years hypnosis has received some pretty bad press, some justified, but much of thecriticism has come from those who do not truly understand the power of hypnosis. However thingsare slowly changing, and it is now generally accepted even in the medical profession that hypnosisis real and can be a very powerful tool.Hypnosis is simply a mental state induced by a hypnotic induction, commonly composed of aseries of preliminary instructions and suggestions. Whilst in the hypnotic state subjects will be in astate of heightened suggestibility where they are far more likely to believe or perform what theyare being told. It can be very effective on some people, and have no effect on others, it reallydepends on the individual and their state of mind as to whether hypnosis will have any effect ornot.Whilst there is no scientific explanation of what hypnosis is or how it works, it is generally acceptedthat hypnosis is real and does have its uses with some people that can achieve quite remarkableresults. It wasnt that long ago that the only type of hypnosis people knew of was stage hypnosis.You have probably seen this at a show or on TV where volunteers are picked from the audienceand hypnotized to perform silly acts for the enjoyment of the rest of the remaining audience.However nowadays in the 21st century hypnosis has evolved and we now have different types ofhypnosis like self-hypnosis, Ericksonian hypnosis and NLP hypnosis to name a few. This articlelooks to define the different types types of hypnosis you may not be so familiar with.Traditional HypnosisTraditional hypnosis has been around for a while now and is what most people think of when theyhear the term hypnosis. Traditional hypnosis is when the hypnotist puts the subject into a hypnotictrance and then tells the subject what to do by giving direct commands and suggestions. This iswhere stage hypnosis has evolved from.Traditional hypnosis has received some bad press over the years and unfortunately some of it isjustified. There have been many stories of actors and stooges playacting in the performance, andat the other extreme people have become stuck in a hypnotic state of terror unable to fullyawaken. Having said this traditional hypnosis can be a fun and effective tool when used by anexperienced hypnotist.HypnotherapyUsing hypnosis to promote healing or positive development in any way is known as hypnotherapy.It is usually used to tackle psychological problems within the mind as this is where hypnosis canvery powerful. When successful hypnotherapy can reprogram patterns of behaviour within themind and can allow things like phobias, irrational fears, addictions and negative emotions to becontrolled. Hypnotherapy can also be used to control the sensations of pain, and hypnosis has2
  3. 3. been used to perform surgery on fully conscious patients who would be in obvious agony if not forthe use of hypnosis.Contrary to common myths, hypnotherapy does not involve any form of deep sleep, in fact thesubject is actually said to be fully awake and in a heightened state of awareness. However thepatient must remain fully focused on the therapy and the success of hypnotherapy depends on thepatients ability to focus on what is being said, establishing a good rapport with the therapist isessential. The patient must believe in the treatment and enter the therapy with an open mind orthe treatment will almost certainly be unsuccessful.Self HypnosisSelf hypnosis (also known as auto hypnosis) is a self induced form of hypnosis and usuallyinvolves the subject learning a set of procedures, or following a recording or some other form ofmedia. Usually this is another form of hypnotherapy and a hypnotherapist will often teach orrecommend self-hypnosis to their patients. It can also be used for relaxation and has beencompared with meditation.The only difference between hypnosis and self hypnosis is that when you are using self-hypnosisyou will be acting on the suggestions of yourself rather than any third party. In fact it has been saidthat all forms of hypnosis are actually self-hypnosis because the subject is going through the sameprocesses in their mind, a hypnotist merely helps the subject into the trance state and offer theirsuggestions, but it is the subject that processes these thoughts in their minds. The end result isthe same whether using self-hypnosis or being hypnotized by a third party.The uses of self-hypnosis are very similar to those of hypnotherapy and can be used to combatpsychological problems like phobias, addictions, stress and other psychological problems. It canalso be used to enter an advanced state of relaxation and this is why self hypnosis is oftencompared with those who are meditating.NLP HypnosisNLP hypnosis (neuro-linguistic programming) is another form of hypnosis similar to self hypnosisbut concentrates more on peoples behaviours. NLP began as a form of psychological therapysimilar to hypnosis and was originally used to tackle similar psychological problems like phobias,depression, habit and learning disorders. Whilst this is still the case, today NLP is seen more as aself-help tool and is often used to promote a sense of well being. NLP is growing rapidly worldwideand becoming increasingly popular in the professional world. NLP courses are becoming popularwithin big businesses, particularly in management training, life coaching and self-help.NLP hypnosis is used to tackle psychological or behavioral problems or to simply improve onessense of well being. It is a great tool for motivation and improving self confidence, although again itis unclear in the scientific community exactly what NLP is or how it works.Ericksonian HypnosisAlso known as conversational hypnosis or covert hypnosis, Ericksonian hypnosis is when asubject can be hypnotized within a normal conversation, often without the subject realizing theyare being hypnotized at all.3
  4. 4. Ericksonian hypnosis or conversational hypnosis was started by the hypnotherapist Dr Milton H.Erickson, who learned to use his speech so effectively after becoming paralyzed and seriously illhimself. After contracting polio at the age of 17 he was essentially bed ridden for long periods, butduring this time he learned the significance of non-verbal communication - things like body languageand tone of voice.This form of hypnosis can be used on those who are skeptical about hypnotherapy or moretraditional hypnosis, and has been said to be more effective on those who are more skeptical. Itcan be used by therapists during conversation and bypasses the traditional stage where ahypnotist will induce trance before performing their work, although according to Erickson thepatient will still enter this trance like state, but it will happen within a few second using cleverhypnotic language and techniques during normal conversation.Whilst this form of hypnosis was originally developed as a form of hypnotherapy it is now beingused by everyday people in everyday life. There are many courses around nowadays that claimyou can control others to do what you want if you can learn the powers of conversational hypnosis.There are even stories of conversational hypnosis being used in more sinister ways, like in Italyrecently when a man used this form of hypnosis to get a bank cashier to hand over the cashsimply by asking her to do so. Whilst incidents like this are very rare, there is no doubt that thisform of hypnosis is real and can be very effective on certain people if you put in the time to learnthe techniques.The author learned about hypnosis whilst building his website which contains more information onhypnosis as well as other psychological tricks used in magic and mentalism. It also teaches mindreading techniques and explains how to greatly improve your memory. There is a great course onconversational hypnosis for those who are interested.Please visit http://magic-mentalism.com to learn more.Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=David_J_Hunt==== ====Here is important information you need to know about hypnosis.Hypnosis Scripts and MP3s to Download==== ====4
