How Does Denver Hypnosis Work? Probably not as you think…
Hypnosis and hypnotherapy in general have been given a bad reputation by Hollywood that is far from the truth.
Maybe you’re afraid of “losing control”, or not believing you can be hypnotized.
Continue reading to discover more about hypnosis to help people who have a problem with smoking.
Let’s start with the common myths and misconceptions that exist about hypnosis.
Top 8 Common Hypnosis Myths Explained
Hypnosis Fact #1: Everyone can indeed be hypnotized.
If you can follow simple instructions, like “Close your eyes, and take a deep breath,” you can hypnotized.
As long as your IQ is above 40, you’re willing to be hypnotized, and you don’t have fears about hypnosis you CAN be hypnotized. It’s that simple.
Hypnosis Fact #2: You hear everything that goes on around you.
You are fully conscious when you’re hypnotized and there is no “selective hearing”. Therefore, you can hear the therapist’s voice, traffic, or any other noise that you would hear if you weren’t hypnotized.
Hypnosis Fact #3: You remember everything while in hypnosis.
When you are hypnotized, you don’t suffer from amnesia. You will be able to remember your entire hypnosis session, from beginning to end.
Hypnosis Fact #4: You won’t be “out of it” or asleep during hypnosis.
You don’t drift off to sleep or become unconscious when you’re hypnotized. You’re always fully alert.
Hypnosis doesn’t really “feel” like anything; just sitting with your eyes closed and someone talking to you.
But what’s going on is that your subconscious is more active and everything you already know about smoking is reinforced to the source of your behavior, the subconscious.
Hypnosis Fact #5: Hypnosis is just a state of focused mental attention and physical relaxation.
Being hypnotized is similar to daydreaming. It’s not a strange and crazy state that allows you to hallucinate in any way.
Many people have experienced hypnosis by the road while driving.
If you’ve ever been driving and then missed your exit daydreaming, and wonder who’s been driving the car the last couple of miles – that’s a similar state to hypnosis.
Hypnosis Fact #6. You never reveal secrets in hypnosis.
This is correct… unless you consciously decide to reveal secrets! You’re always in full control of everything you do, think or say while in hypnosis.
Hypnosis Fact #7. You can’t get “stuck” in hypnosis.
It’s impossible to “get stuck” in the hypnotized state. There has never been any documented case of a person remaining hypnotized.
Hypnosis Fact #8. You’re never “under the hypnotist’s control” during hypnosis.
You may have seen some comedy stage hypnosis shows with people acting like chickens or other crazy things, but that’s totally different from hypnosis used in a therapeutic context.
Hypnosis is dependent on context. Any suggestions made out of the context of what you came in for are just thrown out by your mind.
You can never say, think, or do anything goes against your morals, ethics or values.

Hypnosis is excellent for people who want help dealing with their smoking habit and excess weight because it addresses the source of your behavior – the subconscious mind.
The reason nothing changes, even though you know all the dangers of smoking, is because Chantix, the patch, gum, etc. never go to the source of the smoking – the subconscious mind.
