Therapeutic Hypnosis: I Won't Make You Act Like a Monkey

Why this resource is helpful:

Quoted From:

"I cannot tell you how many times I"m asked "if you hypnotize me are you going to make me act like a monkey or do something silly?" I"m tempted to say "why yes!" but not everyone would appreciate that kind of sarcasm. TV and movies have us believing that hypnosis is what we see on stage or is used to control us. The men and women, who hypnotize groups of people and then make them do outrageous things before an audience, select individuals who are already apt to do silly things. And hypnosis in movieswellit makes for good entertainment but is far from reality. In reality, hypnosis is just a state of being similar to meditation and no one can make you do something you don"t want to."
