Hypnosis may be something you associate with seaside holidays and budget entertainment. Jeering and cheering as unsuspecting guests are pulled onto stage before falling into a state of hypnotism and displaying acts of hilarious foolery. A gold watch is dangled in front of their face in what is more an act of magic and madness. Hypnotism is in fact a widely regulated method used to help end smoking, improve weight challenges, help sleeping patterns and a growing practice in the modern world.
January 4th celebrates World Hypnotism Day and the event looks to gain recognition by breaking the record for the worlds largest live online video streaming of a hypnotherapy session. Dr. Jonathan Royle will stream a free Complete Mind Therapy treatment session to promote and provide an insight into the therapy for people all over the world.
The British television hypnotist and international celebrity mind therapist has named the session ‘The Perfect You’ and hopes to change viewers life’s positively and beneficially in the long run. The video will run approximately 90 minutes and is structured so whatever habit, addiction, phobia or other issue you may have, the session will help.
Royle’s Complete Mind Therapy combines the most powerful and effective elements of conventional Hypnotherapy, NLP, Creative Visualization and other proven psychological treatment techniques. Tamera Foster, who was voted off from last weeks X Factor competition, revealed the use of hypnotherapy to help her remember song lyrics and focus on her stage performances.
The 16 year old said: “ I had hypnotherapy to help improve my stage performances. He put me into a deep meditation and that basically got me into a positive mindset and boosted my confidence. He taught me a few exercises to do before my performances to get me into the zone, so I think I will do those before every performance, because I found on the Saturday, it did help me. I had my two performances and I remembered every word and I could do the choreography as well.”
Hypnosis is a trance state characterized by relaxation, extreme suggestibility and heightened imagination often compared to daydreaming, or the feeling of losing yourself in a book or movie. Whilst you are fully conscious, you tune out most of the stimuli around you and focus intently on the subject at hand.
The category of self-hypnosis is explained as becoming emotionally fully engaged in a source of imagery. For instance when reading a book or watching a film the imaginary world seems somewhat real to you and can cause real sensations of happiness, euphoria, shock and even making you jump or jolt when surprised.
Hypnotherapy is a type of therapy using hypnosis. It is widely promoted as a treatment for various long-term conditions and for breaking certain habits, despite no strong evidence to support these uses. Scientists still discuss how it works with some seeing it as a relaxation technique that uses the power of suggestion whilst others believing the technique relies on the placebo effect.
The British Society of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis describes therapy as follow: “In therapy, hypnosis usually involves the person experiencing a sense of deep relaxation with their attention narrowed down, and focused on appropriate suggestions made by the therapist.”
World Hypnotism day will help celebrate a practice that has existed for over 200 years, and whether you genuinely believe it works many have successfully used hypnotism therapy to enhance their life through the power of suggestion or just the placebo factor, the key concept to remember is at first your must want to be hypnotized for it to work.
The free hypnosis session by Dr. Jonathan Royle runs at 5pm UK GMT which is 12pm Est and 9am rest of U.S.A for those who have registered their place at the official website www.FreeHypnosisEvent.com
