Why I Like Hypnosis

When I was a boy, around 5 or 6 years old, a friend showed me a book on hypnosis. We both were fascinated by it and decided to give it a try. So with book in hand, we took turns trying to hypnotize each other.

We had no idea what "being hypnotized" was like. We only knew what we had seen in movies, and believed that hypnosis was total control of another person's mind and actions--kind of like turning someone into a zombie. We tried for a while, then gave up when we could not produce these effects by reading from a book! LOL

Many years passed and the idea of hypnosis faded into the background, until one day while taking a course, I met a medical doctor who was also trained in hypnosis. He asked if I would like to by hypnotized, and I jumped at the chance. The first time I emerged from trance it felt great! I really enjoyed it and asked to be hypnotized every chance I got. I was hooked.

Since then, I have taken many hypnosis courses and have used it to help myself and many other people.

It's really good and interesting to read your experience and information's on Hypnosis. I went to a Hypnotist when I suffered a lot because of depression and to stop smoking. He gave best and effective suggestions and solutions for my problems and I have attended various session. After those sessions and suggestion I am able to see tremendous improvement in my confidence and self control . And I have stopped smoking completely. I found that best hypnotist from http://www.thoughtsbecomereality.co.uk. They conducting Hypnosis courses for various problems.

I went to a lose weight hypnosis seminar and threw away my money. I'm glad my husband has such an open mind and didn't bat an eye when I said I wanted to try it! LOL<br />

I still love the idea of it though

I want to learn self-hypnosis, so I guess it's better to take a course in it than try to learn from a book?
