Hypnosis and healing with Stephanie Dalfonzo

Hypnosis Myths and Misconceptions

Myth: Hypnosis is mind control

Truth: This is false. Hypnosis is simply a state of focused concentration and heightened suggestibility. You remain fully in control of your own mind and actions. No one can make you do anything you don’t want to do.

Myth: Hypnosis can make you reveal secrets against your will

Truth: You will not divulge any private information you don’t consciously choose to share. What you reveal under hypnosis is up to your discretion. Think of it like a conversation – you remain in the driver’s seat.

Myth: Only weak-minded people can be hypnotized

Truth: People of all mental capacities can experience hypnosis. Intelligence and willpower have no bearing on your ability to enter this natural, relaxed state. Strong minds can focus intensely.

Myth: Hypnosis is dangerous

Truth: Hypnosis is a safe, gentle technique for improved wellbeing when facilitated by a certified professional. We naturally slip into trance-like states (highway hypnosis, reading books, etc.) without harm.

Myth: You'll lose control and act strangely

Truth: You will not behave out of character or feel out of control under hypnosis. While in a state of heightened focus, you remain aware and in charge of your speech and actions.

Myth: Hypnosis only works on weak-minded people

Truth: Hypnosis can benefit people regardless of mental aptitude or willpower. While a relaxed, receptive state boosts responsiveness, results ultimately come down to your intentions and willingness to improve.

Myth: Hypnosis is just an entertainment trick

Truth: Its applications go far beyond amusement. Hypnosis is clinically proven to help people overcome fears, change habits, manage stress, improve sleep quality, and more by accessing the subconscious mind.
