Life Coaching  and Hypnotic Myths


Myth 1: When you wake up from hypnosis, you won't remember anything that happened when you were hypnotized.

While  amnesia may occur in very rare cases, people generally remember  everything that occurred while they were hypnotized. However hypnosis  can have a significant effect on memory. Post-hypnotic amnesia can lead  an individual to forget certain things that occurred be-fore or during  hypnosis. However, this effect is generally limited and temporary.

Myth 2: Hypnosis can help people remember the exact details of a crime they witnessed.

While  hypnosis can be used to enhance memory, the effects have been  dramatically exaggerated in popular media. Research has found that  hypnosis doesn't lead to significant memory enhancement or accuracy and  hypnosis can actually lead to false or distorted memories.

Myth 3: You can be hypnotized against your will.

Despite  stories about people being hypnotized without their consent, hypnosis  requires voluntary participation on the part of the client.

Myth 4: The hypnotist has complete control of your actions while you are under hypnosis.

While  people often feel that their actions under hypnosis seem to occur in  spite of their will, a hypnotist cannot make you perform actions that  are against your values or morals.

Myth 5: Hypnosis can make you super-strong, fast or athletically talented.

While  hypnosis can be used to enhance performance, it cannot make people  stronger or more athletic than their existing physical capabilities.
