Hypnosis is a fascinating phenomenon, and even though we’ve made great advances in understanding it better, there is still so much to learn about it. There are also many misconceptions about hypnosis, mainly because of how hypnosis is depicted in the media and in movies, but overall it is safe to say that the majority of people begin to realize what hypnosis really is.
Here are 7 things you never knew about hypnosis:
1. Hypnosis Can Be Used To Develop Synesthesia
Usually it is believed that synesthesia is genetically determined. But researchers from the University College, London and Luis Fuentes of Spain’s University of Murcia hypnotized people to see numbers as colors.
2. Hypnosis Is Not Like Sleep At All
Many people think that hypnosis is somehow like sleep. After all, the Greek word hypnos actually means sleep. Scientists measured brain activity of people who were hypnotized and found that their brains were wide awake.
3. Hypnosis Is Not New
Hypnosis has been used for thousands of years in different cultures. The earliest recordings of hypnotic trance states date back to ancient Egypt, and later ancient Greece, where special temples functioned as hypnosis centers.
4. Hypnosis Without Hypnotists
You don’t really need a hypnotist to go into hypnotic trance states. In fact, autosuggestions can work just as well. Although you should have a solid understanding of the fundamentals of hypnotic language patterns and the right way to utilize hypnotic suggestions. The best way to experience what hypnosis is like is with a relaxing self hypnosis recording.
5. Hypnosis Makes Wounds Heal Faster
Medical researchers from Harvard University found that hypnosis can make surgical wounds heal faster. And not just that, many studies have shown that hypnosis can accelerate the healing process in your body in many areas. If you have a health problem that needs faster healing, just listen to the natural healing hypnosis download and fast-forward your healing processes.
6. Scientists Say Hypnosis Works, But It’s A Mystery
Scientists found that hypnosis works and can be used for many things from pain management to immune system boosting to accelerated learning and much more. They even measured brain activity of hypnotized people. Yet, strangely, they still have no understanding why hypnosis works – and the underlying mechanism baffle them and challenge current medical paradigms.
7. Hypnosis Can Make Time Go Faster (Or Slower)
You can be hypnotized to “slow time down” or speed it up. The famous hypnotherapist Dr. Milton H. Erickson has co-authored a book about time-distortion under hypnosis where he elaborates in great length about this phenomenon.
