When you hear the word hypnosis, you may picture the mysterious hypnotist figure popularized in movies, comic books and television. This ominous, goateed man waves a pocket watch back and forth, guiding his subject into a semi-sleep, zombie-like state. Once hypnotized, the subject is compelled to obey, no matter how strange or immoral the request. Muttering “Yes, master,” the subject does the hypnotist’s evil bidding.

This popular representation bears little resemblance to actual hypnotism, of course. In fact, modern understanding of hypnosis contradicts this conception on several key points. Subjects in a hypnotic trance are not slaves to their “masters” — they have absolute free will. And they’re not really in a semi-sleep state — they’re actually hyper-attentive.

Hypnosis is a therapeutic technique in which clinicians make suggestions to individuals who have undergone a procedure designed to relax them and focus their minds.

Although hypnosis has been controversial, most clinicians now agree it can be a powerful, effective therapeutic technique for a wide range of conditions, including pain, anxiety and mood disorders. Hypnosis can also help people change their habits, such as quitting smoking.

  1. So glad you visited my blog so I could find yours – what a coincidence – I tried hypnotism several weeks ago & am now convinced that its wonderful!

    are you just starting this blog? am wishing you the best with it.

    Perhaps you’d like to write a post to go onto my blog? something short – 300 words or less, on why you became a hypnotist? it would include a link to your blog — that way my readers will get to know about you & your eventual readers will get to know my blog?

    if you’re interested, you can email me at ContactDaal@gmail.com


    • Good morning, yes I am just starting this blog. Thank you very much for your kind words. I wanted to become a clinical hypnotheripist to help folks who suffer from PTSD and Pain also to explore past lives. There are so many things that you can resolve by using hypnosis. It is one of the most under used tools for change. I want to help create more discussion and thought on this subject! I also would love to write a piece for your blog. Thank you!

      • Am so glad, Magickalsoul. Here’s the guest blogging guidelines I mentioned — please keep in mind, as you might notice from other guests posts on my site, that the info below is veeerrry flexible:

        Guest blogging offers a win-win — by my publishing an article/post here, these readers will surely want to see more of your writing via the link to your site that will appear with it. Likewise, when you alert your readers to find your post on my site, they’ll be introduced to my blog & its followers.

        Posts for HappinessBetweenTails.WordPress.com should be simple for you to write, informal, requiring only as much research as you like. Topics that loosely touch on anything covered here, though don’t need to be limited to:

        • happiness
        • pets
        • blogging
        • reading
        • writing
        • libraries
        • dancing
        • public speaking

        In general, posts are best at less than 300 words.

        If you can add a headline & some pictures that are legal for me to use, so much the better.

        Looking forward to hearing back from you – Daal
