Frequently Asked Questions
Can everyone be hypnotized?
YES. Even though many people say, “Well, I can’t be hypnotized.” These people have been misinformed about what hypnosis is and is not.
The lightest state of hypnosis (Alpha) is achieved easily. Everyone enters alpha states multiple times a day while doing things like watching a movie, reading a good book, playing video games, and, yes, driving. It’s the state you are in when you are just waking up or just going to bed. You are not fully conscious, but you are not fully unconscious either.
Unknown to many people, while in these light alpha states (watching TV, or driving with the radio on), you are up to 200 times more suggestible than when you are fully awake (Beta).
What if I go into a hypnotic trance and don’t wake up?
Impossible. Less than 20% of the population is “somnambulist,” meaning they will enter deep trance on their first try. Even these people will wake up at the end of a session. Most people, however, achieve a light trance state (alpha) in which they are aware of what is happening although they are completely relaxed and focused.
What if I’m too intelligent for you to put me under?
The more intelligent you are, the more easily you can be hypnotized. Geniuses are naturally close to a hypnotic state of Alpha most of the time and therefore enter hypnosis easily.
Unfortunately I am not a genius, so it took me a few tries to learn.
What if I fall asleep during a hypnosis session?
Then you are going to have a great dream! Seriously, your eyes close, but your ears cannot close. Your hearing is on 24/7, like a sleeping mother who hears her baby cry. She will “awaken” immediately.
Even if you fall asleep during hypnosis, your unconscious is always listening, and it enjoys hearing positive encouragement.
Do I listen to hypnosis at night?
If this is your first time trying hypnosis then I recommend listening in the evening, just in case you fall asleep. Although I find them energizing, these MP3’s can be very relaxing, and many people fall asleep!
But like I said, I enjoy listening to my MP3’s all times of the day, even in the morning when my brain is the most active.
How often do I have to listen to hypnosis MP3’s?
Never if you don’t want to, but if you do enjoy my MP3’s you can listen as often as you want. My longest trance is only 30 minutes (most are less than 20 mins), so you could listen to a couple of trances a day if you wanted to. I recommend just one trance a day for at least 12 days in row. That will get you started enjoying the benefits of hypnosis, and you’ll know if you like it.
Do I wear headphones?
Unless there are others in the room that want to hear the recording- or you have no other option- I suggest headphones because I feel it intensifies the experience. However, my good friend never uses headphones, and he claims he trances deeply even while his neighbors were making loud love behind thin walls. He wants me to write trances he can listen to while he walks around.
Is there anything else I should know about hypnosis?
Yes, find a comfortable place to relax, focus on doing the exercises, and enjoy yourself.
You are a great and wonderful person.
