If you have never experienced hypnosis before, it can be difficult to know what to expect. Hollywood would have you believe that hypnosis is a sleep like state where you are under the control of the hypnotist. In reality hypnosis is nothing like this, in fact hypnosis has a lot more to do with the individual than the “magic” power of the hypnotist.
With this in mind here are 6 common misconceptions about hypnosis.
1. You’re asleep when being hypnotized
Hypnosis can lead to sleep, but that’s not it’s goal. The reason you would fall asleep would be down to tiredness or complete relaxation (and an ability to fall asleep easily). Most people who are hypnotized stay awake for the whole experience.
Opinion is mixed as to whether hypnosis is still effective during sleep, but it is best to assume that sleep is not the usual goal.
2. You’re unconscious when hypnotized
You cannot be rendered unconscious by hypnosis. During hypnosis you are fully aware the entire time. In fact through hypnosis relaxation many people become much more aware and their senses heightened; this is how new suggestions become more effective to you.
3. Hypnosis is a quick fix
Sometimes one session is enough, other times several are required,but once the new beliefs are established they can be lifelong.

4. You need to be in a deep trance
Hypnosis can still be effective even in a light hypnotic state. Don’t feel pressured to get into a really deep trance, it’s perfectly acceptable to move and preposition yourself during hypnosis and it doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re going to lose the benefits. You can always listen to the recording again if you feel you were distracted or not relaxed enough.
5. You need to see a professional
Hypnosis is a natural state that all of us have experienced at some point in our lives. You can even put yourself int hypnosis and there are guides on this.
If you want to use hypnosis for a general problem such as Erectile dysfunction, a pre-recorded hypnosis track can be just as effective.
6. A hypnotist needs a certain kind of voice
The voice of the hypnotist is not so important to their effectiveness, though it does help if they have a soothing voice. The deepness or accent of their voice does not matter so much.
