Ex hypnotist talks about Hypnosis and Christianity. The dangers of Hypnosis for Christians.
As a hypnotist I’m always learning more and looking for ideas on how to best serve my clients and during one of those information searches I found a person who says …
Ex-hypnotist talks about the dangers of Hypnosis and how Hypnosis is against Christianity. The dangers of hypnosis for a Christian
Let’s start by clarifying … I’m a hypnotist. I’m a Christian. I practice hypnosis every day. I practice self-hypnosis every day.
A person who calls himself an ex-hypnotist and who talks about how hypnosis is dangerous to a Christian, Christianity or any other person, is quite likely that he has never been a hypnotist and never practiced hypnosis … and does not understand the Bible.
And much more if to justify his points use stage hypnosis videos and says … look how the volunteers have her hands stuck together, look the hypnotist has total control on everyone on the show, look you can feel that there is demoniac presence, demons are helping the hypnotist to create these supernatural phenomena, hypnosis looks like demonic possession.
Let’s clarify some points.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a technique that leads to the hypnotic state (sometimes called hypnotic trance) where you reach a high degree of concentration. Your mind is totally focused on something, someone or a goal. During the hypnotic state you access your subconscious more easily and accept suggestions more easily.
The hypnotic phenomena has nothing of supernatural or diabolic. They are the result of the power of your mind and suggestion.
In Stage Hypnosis this hypnotic state is used to create hypnotic phenomena, such as that a person forgets numbers, names, or that sees things that do not exist, or does not see things that are in front of the person.
Hypnotherapy, Motivational Hypnosis and Stage Hypnosis use the same technique, hypnosis – totally focused concentration.
If you have seen videos on YouTube about Stage Hypnosis, you will notice that even in hypnosis people move, laugh, do things they would not normally do, as long as they are not against their moral principles.
How does a Stage Hypnosis show work?
I will try not to be too long in my explanation.
The Stage Hypnotist conducts a series of test with the audience to find out possible volunteers. These test are usually fingers that get closer to each other, hands stuck, arm levitation.
Then he or she choose volunteers between those you reacted more positive to the test.
These tests have nothing magical, they are simply tests that help the hypnotist to choose volunteers. Just the power of your mind. The power of suggestion.
When the hypnotist has already chosen the volunteers, you will notice that he hypnotizes them several times. The Stage Hypnotist takes the volunteers in and out of hypnosis several times.I imagine that you know that the more we do something, the more efficient we become. The same with hypnosis, the more I enter in hypnosis, the easier it will be next time.
Again nothing magic, no sorcery, no enchantments, no demons, no demoniac possession.
What is the key to success in Stage Hypnosis?
– An experienced hypnotist, training. Who knows what he or she is doing.
– A volunteer who enters very easily in hypnosis. Generally people with very good imagination, who can visualize very easily.
There is no magic, there are no enchantments, there is no devil helping the hypnotist.
Everything is a matter of understanding a bit how the mind works, the suggestion and hypnosis.
A hypnotist, an ex-hypnotist who does not understand how Stage Hypnosis works is obviously not a hypnotist, it would be like calling a carpenter someone who has no idea how a hammer works.
Anyone who has really practiced hypnosis, who has done hypnotherapy, who has helped clients or patients to experience hypnosis knows three very important things.
– A hypnotist never has total control over a patient or a client.
– Hypnosis is total concentration. It is totally focused attention. I always mention as an example when we look for our glasses and we have them on … and we do not feel them, nor do we see them. Or when we are looking for our car key and we have it in our hand … but we do not feel it, nor do we see it. Both are phenomena very similar to those that occur during the hypnotic state in hypnosis and particularly in Stage Hypnosis.
– Hypnotherapy, Motivational Hypnosis and Stage Hypnosis use the same technique, hypnosis. Certainly the goals are different.
A hypnotist could become an ex hypnotist and say … well, it was not what I expected. It does not work 100%, it does not have all the power that I expected. I accept that because many people approach hypnosis believing that it is a magical power or that they will be able to cure everyone with hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a power mind technique, but is not for every thing and does not work all the time.
A hypnotist, ex hypnotist who says … I become an ex-hypnotist, because hypnosis is demonic, there are demons helping the hypnotist, hypnosis is a door for demonic possession, obviously does not know what hypnosis is, does not know how the mind work, does not know that there is no mention in the Bible about the word Hypnosis or what hypnosis is.
The so called ex hypnotist has probably never been a hypnotist and never practiced hypnosis. Someone who calls himself an ex-hypnotist and who does not know how stage hypnosis works has never been a hypnotist.
A person who calls himself or herself an ex hypnotist and believes that hypnosis is enchantments, witchcraft, magic, special power … it is more than obvious that he does not know what hypnosis is.
I wonder how a person who has no idea how hypnosis work, or how Stage Hypnosis works or how the mind works would call himself an ex hypnotist?
Those who attack hypnosis say it is enchantments or witchcraft, which is against the Bible.
Well hypnosis is not enchantments, witchcraft, or magic … and the word hypnosis is not found in the Bible. What is hypnosis is not contrary to the Bible. Nowhere in the Bible, in the Old Testament, or in the New Testament will you find anything against focused concentration.
Hypnosis is a technique that takes us to the hypnotic state that is a state of totally focused concentration. A person who has his mind fully focused may believe that his hand is stuck to a table, or not see something that exists and everything is the result of his mind is totally focused on something else and has accepted suggestions about it.
As I have mentioned many times, a hypnotist, during a stage hypnosis, makes hypnosis look like magic … because it is part of the show. There is no magic or demons involved, just the power of you mind, the power of suggestion and a hypnotist that knows what he is doing.
Think of a very basic and simple fact. If hypnosis were total mind control, if a hypnotist had the help of occult forces or the help of demons, why a hypnotist would spend this time and energy on a stage hypnosis show and earn a few hundred dollars … when he could be better to control the mind of many people, control them and earn millions of dollars and even dominate the world?
The answer is simple hypnosis is not mind control … you cannot control the world using hypnosis. Hypnosis does not open your mind to the control of others or to demonic possession.
In Stage Hypnosis, the hypnotist always chooses people who enter hypnosis very easily – and that’s why it seems like magic – also, if you watch a video of hypnosis, it makes volunteers enter hypnosis several times. The more times you enter into hypnosis, the easier it is. And it always starts with easy suggestions and little by little it is leading the volunteers to more difficult suggestions.
Can Hypnosis be dangerous?
Again … hypnosis is a technique. A person who practices hypnosis and does not know what he is doing could be dangerous, as it can be a doctor or dentist who does not know what he is doing, so I always recommend if you want to experience hypnosis find a Health Care Professional who practices and has experience in hypnosis or a Professional Hypnotist or a Consulting Hypnotist.
The Health Care Professional who has training in Hypnosis, the Consulting Hypnotist, the Professional of Hypnosis, the State Hypnotist, the all use the same technique, hypnosis.
Is just a matter of training and experience.
Is like a Doctor and the scalpel … all Doctors know how to use a scalpel, but some of them do not use it very often, others use it every day … who you would trust more?
Every country, every province, every state has different laws and regulations in how the technique, hypnosis, can be used by a Health Care Professional or a person who is trained in Hypnosis but is not a Health Care Professional.
Can Stage Hypnosis be dangerous?
No. If you attend a presentation by a hypnotist with training and experience.
Yes. If you “play” with hypnosis with someone who does not know what you are doing, but the dangers are not demoniac related.
There is no scientific evidence of any one suffering demoniac possession because of hypnosis. None.
Let’s put a very clear point. Any technique that involves the mind can be dangerous, but not because it involves demons, or demonic possession, but because the person who uses the technique does not know what he is doing. The same can be said of any technique. Even the Bible can be dangerous when it is used to manipulate and control others. A doctor or a psychologist could be dangerous if he is incompetent.
Hypnosis is a technique that can help you a lot. The best part is that you can learn more how your mind works and therefore learn more how to protect yourself from those who want to manipulate or control you.
Again, a hypnotist, who does not know how spectacle hypnosis works, is not a hypnotist. He cannot call himself a Ex Hypnotist. Be careful not to be fooled by so much false information on the Internet and YouTube. A person who calls himself an ex-hypnotist and talks about demons and enchantments, has no idea how the mind works and much less what hypnosis is.
And I invite you to look up the word hypnosis in the Bible and look in the Bible where mention is made of concentrating in a totally focused way (hypnosis). You will not find anything bad about it.
Hypnosis is not against Christianity. Entering the hypnotic state does not make you susceptible to diabolical possession (it would be like saying that concentrating watching TV opens you up to demonic possession).
If you have doubts always consult your doctor first, especially if you are under medical or psychological treatment, if you have heart problems or suffer from epilepsy. Check with your religious leader if that makes you feel better, but please make sure your religious leader, whether a Priest, Pastor or Minister … really knows what hypnosis is, not someone who tells you what someone else has told him and he has no idea what hypnosis is and how the mind works.
Two types of Hypnotist or Ex Hypnotist to be aware … the one who exaggerate,s who said hypnosis is a cure all technique. Those who said hypnosis is enchantment or sorcery. Both do not know what is hypnosis is … be aware.
Blessings and Peace Profound.
