When one first hears the word Hypnosis, many images come to mind for most people up to and including images of an audience member in a stage show clucking like a chicken.  This is in fact stage hypnosis and rest assured that the person doing the clucking is doing so of his or her own free will.

There are many misconceptions about hypnosis such as:  I will be made to do something against my will, I will not remember what happened, I will tell you my deepest secrets or do something I am uncomfortable with, I have to be relaxed to be hypnotized, and I can not be hypnotized to name a few.  We are all being hypnotized on a daily basis.  If you have ever had the experience of driving in your car and arriving at your destination without remembering parts of the journey, you have been hypnotized.

In fact, if hypnosis (which is merely being open to the power of suggestion) weren’t so effective in our daily lives, we wouldn’t feel compelled to buy all the things and eat all of the bad foods advertisers sell us on the TV.  Truly, Hypnosis is just a different level of consciousness and has been used for many years to help with fears, phobias, pain, and anxiety to name of few not to mention that at the deepest level of consciousness it has actually been used on people undergoing surgery instead of using anesthesia.
