The “state of inner absorption, concentration and focused attention” brought on by hypnosis may help us use our minds more powerfully, according to the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis (ASCH). And harnessing the powers of the mind has inspired researchers and clinicians in various fields to explore the use of hypnosis in a number of health outcomes.
Can anyone be hypnotised? One of the most frequently asked questions when it comes to Hypnosis is whether or not can everyone be hypnotised or can anyone be hypnotised?
Some people are adamant that they can’t be hypnotised and are convinced that hypnosis will never work for them. So what’s the real answer? Is it impossible for some people to be hypnotised the way that they claim?
The answer is yes, and no. Everyone can be hypnotised, theoretically, so there’s no physical reason why everyone can’t be put into a hypnotic state. But there may be psychological reasons that someone is resistant to being hypnotised which might make it very difficult for that person to relax enough to enter a true hypnotic state.
Usually people who are certain that they can’t be hypnotised have a deep seated need for control and think that if they allow themselves to be hypnotised they will be giving up control so they will never allow themselves to relax enough to get to the hypnotic state. Oddly enough the higher someones IQ the better hypnotic subject they are. You never give up control of your mind or body during hypnosis and you’re never unconscious.
Your conscious mind is just very deeply relaxed and letting the subconscious mind come to the forefront. So people that are very sure that can’t be hypnotised really can be hypnotized but not until they let go of their belief that being hypnotised means giving up control of themselves to someone else.
