Demystifying Hypnosis

The word hypnosis means “sleep” in Greek, and it recalls a loss of consciousness; that’s why people fear it. In reality, therapeutic hypnosis, and in particular the one performed by The Method World, interacts with the state of consciousness that alters reality. With this, I say that whoever finds himself/herself in a state of emotional suffering, is living hypnotized by this state. That state had originated in the past and analogically is replaying, or triggered in the present, through a regeneration of the original fear, from an event that, at that time, has not been processed. The energetic power got stuck and stored in the unconscious mind, and is still feeding the person of this emotional charge at the present moment, years away, and in different areas of the person’s life, totally unconsciously. I want to clarify here that this type of hypnosis in reality de-hypnotizes the person.  We can call it a reconnection to our original selves.

The Hypnosis used by The Method World is based on Non-Verbal Communication (NVC) and Soft Skills plus a blending of psychology, symbolic communication, and coaching. It is technically called Dynamic Hypnosis because the recipient is totally awake and conscious.

The origin of Hypnosis is unknown and there are many different interpretations and styles. In the beginning, about 1,500 years B.C. was believed to be a cosmic fluid that, through a special person, generated the hypnotic state in another person. Then it developed into the belief that a particular person possessed the power to hypnotize others. It was steeped in mysticism, religious myths, and magic rituals.

It disappeared from the scene into oblivion until about the middle of the 17th century when this practice was rediscovered by Franz A. Mesmer (the word “mesmerized” comes from his name). He brought hypnosis into therapeutic practice and from then, hypnosis has become a technique. In the same century, several practitioners followed until Sigmund Freud  (1856 – 1959) took this practice out of mystery and put it into psychology and became a scientific observation.

Today the new frontier of Hypnosis is based on Non-Verbal Communication and body language. It is part of the Soft Skills, the NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming), and the realm of our inner nature and bodily expressions that can be rediscovered in our behavior and brought to the surface of consciousness, thus allowing our unconscious mind the same worthiness and dignity as the logical mind. We should not forget that until today, mental diseases have been labeled as “the dark evil”.

Today Hypnosis is widely used in many ways to solve mental-emotional upsets, physical pathology and relational problems. It also helps in:

  1. Changing behavior patterns.
  2. Detect unconscious association.
  3. Healing trauma.
  4. Transformation of emotional upsets.
  5. Remove condition of suffering.
  6. Personal growth.
  7. Awareness and Consciousness.
