There are many different names for hypnosis nowadays and many different explanations of the way it takes place.
Most hypnotherapists confuse someone being in a trance for someone who's in hypnosis. Someone in hypnosis can be put in to a trance state but trance alone does not imply a customer is hypnotised.
An excellent hypnotist can produce all the various kinds of phenomena (hallucinations etc.) with the customer having their eyes open or shut. It's great for that hypnotist to let an individual experience this to indicate that you can lead them into unusual experienced in which the customer knows something is happening that's from their ordinary reality so they have tangible evince that you are a skilled hypnotist.
I do this for many my hypnotherapy clients to let them notice a master hypnotist at work and also to suggest to them how powerful their mind is really. I love to inspire these phones use their powerful unconscious mind in more productive ways for them to have a better life.
Can you be sure if a customer is hypnotised. I start with testing and this will be done using their eyes open before we do any change work. I'll have the customer stuck to things and they won't be able to remember their name or they could find that I become invisible something like that based on the customer and how available I would like to take them and once I am aware I'm able to take the customer in to a different reality I'll generally stick their eyes closed and place these questions hypnotic trance.
Through the hypnotherapy session I am asking their unconscious mind to communicate with me and for that reason of this. Inside the hypnotic trance things is going to be happening however the customer won't be rendering it happen and I have methods to test this to make certain the communication between your unconscious mind and myself is reputable.
Some customers suggest that the very thought of giving control to a new is scary. When i emphasize the customer. It's not half as scary as lung cancer from smoking or prison from drugs or gambling. In fact, unlike most therapeutic interventions on the market which require customer to do the job themselves over a long time. An individual in real hypnosis with me will usually achieve an outcome within an hour or less and many types of they need to do is enjoy a fun experience and then leave it for their unconscious mind and me to complete the job.
The majority of hypnotherapists available will debate that things i am suggesting about hypnosis isn't true and that mind control doesn't exist. It's funny that if you ask the same hypnotherapists if they have ever experienced real hypnosis themselves a lot of them will say no. I've found it interesting they are selling something in which they understand nothing about.
