Frequently Asked Questions

Can I be Hypnotized?
"Can You Be Hypnotized?"
by Jason Cyrus, Author, Unconscious Coach, Motivational Hypnotist, Keynote Speaker

You may be thinking, “Hypnosis sounds wonderful, but can I be hypnotized? I don’t think I can be. I’m very stubborn, I don’t have a good attention span and I hate to give up control.”
Well, you may then be surprised to learn that you probably already experience hypnosis on a daily basis. Yes, you see hypnosis is a natural state of mind that we all typically experience everyday.

Have you ever found yourself completely immersed in an activity to the exclusion of everything else? That is a natural trance state. Common examples of this are while watching a movie and becoming transfixed in the plot. Or in working intently and finding that the last four hours have flown by without your conscious awareness. Perhaps you have been reading a book and been so transfixed that you did not hear someone come in and speak with you. Perhaps they surprised you or “woke” you from the state of mind and had to repeat their salutation to you.

Hypnosis is naturally experienced daily.
Hypnosis is not witchcraft, manipulation or magic. It simply is a tool that will allow you to tap into the power of your mind.

What Is Required to Be Hypnotized?

Hopefully, by now you beginning to realize that you need not make a deal with the devil or expect any negative side effects whatsoever from hypnosis. Indeed if that is the case, you absorb those liabilities on a daily basis.
All that is required to be hypnotized is a willingness and a minimum of an IQ level of 60.

If you have are not willing, then you will not focus, you will not concentrate on reaching this state of mind, and consequently you won’t. If you're the sort of person who does not have a high level of "hypnotizablity," than it merely means that different tools may be required and a longer time period may be required to put you into that special state of mind.
You can enter trance state anywhere you desire. Sounds, lights and external disturbances can themselves be incorporated into the hypnotic process called an induction. Often times incorporating these will make the hypnosis state easier to reach and more satisfying.

Why Does Hypnosis Work?

Hypnosis works through the power of suggestion. In order to fully understand the how, it’s important to discuss the mechanics of your conscious and subconscious state.

Recall the last time you operated your vehicle. Perhaps it was to go to work, shopping or the doctor’s office. Think about that trip. Do recall the details of that drive? Most don’t, most people do not consciously drive their vehicles. For most people driving is an unconscious state of mind. They don’t say to themselves I must put the vehicle in gear, release the parking brake, check over my shoulder for oncoming traffic, signal to turn left, release the steering wheel to right the vehicle and on and on.

Driving is typically done unconsciously. Your subconscious is aware of everything that is happening but consciously you’re thinking about things you need to do, thinking things you want to watch on television later, or things you wished you would have said or done.
We tend to multitask all day long. We easily and naturally move between the conscious to the subconscious.

Take this simple test:
I fly a
A kite everyday

What did you see? Your selective conscious mind would probably have you focus on just the letters of the sentence structure. I’m certain you also saw the book your holding, possibly the floor beneath it and maybe the furniture that is beside you.
Consciously you became very selective of what you were processing. Subconsciously your awareness was fully engaged by all these other factors. In addition there certainly are other stimulus as well.

Perhaps once directed consciously you become aware of the sounds in the background or of the temperature of your surroundings. More than likely while taking the test those were not in your consciousness. By the way, did you read the “a” twice in the above box?
Sometimes in stress release programs people will say, “The only time I can turn things off is when I sleep.”
The ironic thing is that while you’re sleeping you’re not turning anything off. You are actually turning other things on. You are adjusting your state. You are entering a delta level of brain wave activity and rejuvenating yourself physically while your subconscious going right on working.

Have you ever had an issue you could not resolve? Or have you ever found yourself trying to remember the answer to a question that you know you know but cannot recall? If so, likely this information came to the forefront as soon as you quit trying to retrieve it. Maybe you woke up in the morning with it, or maybe as soon as you consciously directed your attention to other things your subconscious took over and delivered that information in no time at all.

The other day I was watching a program on artists. They had a number of songwriters on who spoke about how they had awaken in the night and written the biggest hit of their career without ever even being consciously aware of it until in the morning they found the composition sitting beside their bed.

How It Feels To Be Hypnotized
I’m sure you have seen zombie like characters in the movies and on television that are supposedly in a hypnotic state of mind. This common misconception can create an attitude of opposition to experiencing the hypnotic state and implants the suggestion that you lose all control during hypnosis.

In fact, when you are hypnotized you are in more control than when you are in the normal daily state. Remember, during hypnosis your blood flow is increased in the right anterior cingulate cortex. This suggests that there is an internal focus, not a complete release of control. You become internally focused, and your surrounding environment becomes less important and insignificant. If for any reason there was an emergency or your attention was needed, you would immediately emerge yourself to respond appropriately.
Emerge means to come to a full waking state.

When people are in a controlled hypnotized state of mind the body is typically very relaxed. They may appear to be asleep but the biological state is very different from sleep.

You may be slumped over, in a relaxed state. And while your body is relaxed your mind will be alert and perceptive of the suggestions it is receiving. All outside stimulus will become irrelevant. Your focus will be directly on the words of the suggestions you are receiving. Your breathing will be light and rhythmic. You will probably have a distorted sense of time. You will feel like you have been under for just a couple minutes, even if it has been sixty to ninety minutes.

I sincerely hope you have found value within this series of reports. Hypnosis is a fascinating subject, so please consider sharing this with your friends.

What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis can simply be defined as a state of heightened suggestibility in which you’re able to reprogram your mind and body for success. It’s an integrative process of rebuilding habits and behaviors, as well as emotions, beliefs, and feelings.
Have you ever found yourself completely immersed in an activity to the exclusion of everything else? That is a natural trance state. Common examples of this are while watching a movie and becoming transfixed in the plot. Or in working intently and finding that the last four hours have flown by without your conscious awareness. Perhaps you have been reading a book and been so transfixed that you did not hear someone come in and speak with you. Perhaps they surprised you or “woke” you from the state of mind and had to repeat their salutation to you.

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state you’ve already experienced thousands of times. It is not manipulation, mind control, or magic. It simply is a tool that will allow you to tap into the power of your mind and take control of your life.

Can anyone be hypnotized?
Yes! Anyone who is willing to be hypnotized can experience the state. When working with an experienced professional, the techniques and program will be customized for you. Our clients report they easily achieve the state and can use it for their continued success long after the sessions are over.
Will I lose control?
No. Hypnosis is a state of mind that requires consent. You will be aware of what I am saying during the session, and cannot be made to do against your own morals. You cannot be made to tell secrets while experiencing hypnosis.
A common misconception of hypnosis involves a potential client thinking that they may be “too strong-willed” to be hypnotized. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. The stronger your ability to focus and concentrate, the faster and easier you will go into hypnosis.

Will I be asleep?
No. Hypnosis is actually a heightened state of awareness.
The hypnotized subject is cognizant of their surroundings. You will hear cars outside or even voices from the room next door – confirming you are alert and in control the entire time. We also employ a number of techniques utilizing post-hypnotic suggestions, and you will remember everything that happened during your session.
Is Hypnosis dangerous?
Hypnosis is a natural ability of the mind that we all experience daily.
The use of hypnosis has been recognized by the American Medical Association since 1958. It is completely safe when practiced by an experienced, professional hypnotist. It is only dangerous if you are driving or operating machinery, so hypnosis audio products should not be listened to in those circumstances. There has not been one documented case of hypnosis doing harm to a person.
What does it feel like?
By definition, hypnosis is NOT a state of relaxation, but as many issues are related to stress or anxiety we often create a profoundly relaxed state to assist in making the changes. Most people report feeling very relaxed or pleasantly lethargic. Many clients are surprised at how “normal” the experience feels, as many have been conditioned by movies or television to think there is a “magic feeling” that suddenly washes over you.

Your mind will be alert and perceptive of the suggestions it is receiving. Your focus will be directly on your experience or the words of the suggestions you are receiving.

My friend tried hypnosis and said it didn't work, what happened?
The success of your experience is dependent on two factors – the client’s willingness for change and the skills of the hypnotist.
If the client doesn’t have an honest desire for change, such as a smoker who is only seeing a hypnotist at the urging of a spouse, they are not prepared to accept the suggestions for positive change.
If, however, the smoker is fed up with the habit and no longer wants the cigarettes to be a part of their life, they are primed for success.
Hypnosis is not a “one size fits all” process.
Your hypnosis experience with Jason Cyrus will include a pre-session interview in which we will identify your goals and
custom-design a program for your success.

How long does it take?
Rapid change is possible with hypnosis.
Sessions are scheduled for 45 to 60 minutes.
You will probably have a distorted sense of time. You will feel like you have been hypnotized for just a couple minutes, even though the hypnotic process is usually 30-45 minutes of our time together.
Our clients are scheduled for a brief series of sessions, as our goal is to provide you with the most effective hypnotic process in the most efficient use of your time. This model allows for an effective series of sessions with continued reinforcement, self-hypnosis training, and proper customization for your unique set of needs.
Most people begin to experience benefits from the very first session, though hypnosis is a process.

How Hypnosis can help with anxiety.
Hypnosis is used for many purposes in the modern day. It has actually grown more in favor in recent years as a treatment for mental health issue, and hypnosis/hypnotherapy has become one of the more mainstream alternative treatments.
Certified hypnotherapists today treat everything from cigarette addiction to skin diseases, as well as soothing patients in preparation for painful medical procedures (including dental work, surgery and chemotherapy injections). This article will discuss the hypnotic state of “trance,” how hypnosis can affect the symptoms of anxiety, and the possible benefits of hypnosis for people with anxiety disorders.
Hypnosis and Relaxation: The “Trance” State
Hypnosis is just one of many types of treatment options that are considered "alternative medicine." One of the reasons it has this label is because, contrary to popular belief, there are very few studies that carefully examine whether or not hypnosis works. For a more comprehensive treatment, make sure you take my anxiety test now.
For hypnosis to work, the hypnotist must first put his or her client into what is called a “trance state.” This is a state of mental and physical relaxation in which the conscious mind is encouraged to rest, while the subconscious mind is kept alert.
The “conscious mind” is what you mainly think of as your mind: the part that thinks about what to say or do next. The “subconscious mind” is just a name for another type of awareness in your brain, the part that is in charge of the beliefs and emotions connected to what you say and do.
All of these things are functions of your brain, but hypnotists separate them by calling them two different “minds” because they treat each set of functions separately.
Hypnotists address the subconscious mind because their job isn’t to tell you what to do and explain why you should do it (except when they tell your conscious mind to take a break so they can address the subconscious, with your permission): instead, it’s to change your beliefs and feelings about what you do, in order for you to feel better about doing whatever it is you want to do (or, alternatively, worse about doing what you don’t want to do).

An effective trance state, or initial state of hypnotic relaxation, has several notable physical results:
• Slowed breathing patterns
• Decreased heart rate
• Muscle relaxation
• Calm, relaxed speaking voice
• Rapid eye movement (REM)

Due to the relaxed atmosphere and state in which hypnosis must be performed, it is a safe treatment for anxiety (so long as it is being performed by a certified professional). Sitting back or lying down and being mentally guided through physical and mental relaxation can be a valuable experience for a person with anxiety, as it may help them to understand what they need to do (both physically and mentally) in order to relax. Furthermore, hypnosis is designed to avoid escalating any anxiety symptoms you may feel (rapid heart rate, rapid breathing, muscle tension), and has no unexpected side effects (unlike many medications).

If you are an anxious person you may find it difficult to imagine that you would be able to relax enough to enter the trance state required for hypnotic work to be effective. However, both your subconscious mind (your beliefs and emotions) and your conscious mind (the awareness of what you are doing) are always present and listening on some level. If you consciously want to be helped, it is a simple matter of finding a certified professional who makes you feel comfortable, ensuring that they understand the effects you want the treatment to have, and opening your mind to hearing their suggestions.

3 Anxiety Problems Hypnosis Can Address
In terms of directly addressing your anxiety, there are 3 anxiety-related problems that hypnotism is commonly used to address.
• Physical Tension/Strain Physical pain and tension (often having roots in emotional tension) can be addressed by hypnotism. Addressing and working to alter the beliefs that you have about the triggers for your anxiety can help reduce the frequency and/or intensity of the physically straining symptoms of anxiety such as a rapid heart rate, rapid breathing and shaking. In addition, it can ease feelings of discomfort and strain by implanting the suggestion that you feel more physically comfortable than you actually do.
• Emotional Strain/Moodiness Along with causing physical strain, constant or frequent anxiety can also put you in a strained emotional state. The bodily energy required by the physical symptoms of anxiety, in combination with the persistent feelings of discontentment and worry, can make you feel drained and/or on edge. Hypnotism’s general purpose is to put people in a more positive frame of mind, altering unnecessary negative beliefs and implanting more helpful ones. In addressing this symptom, a hypnotist may focus on implanting the belief that you feel happy, content, and confident in your ability to address and resolve the causes of your anxiety.
• Sleeping Problems Many people with anxiety also have difficulty sleeping well. Getting to sleep in an anxious state and sleeping deeply when nightmares and muscle tension are keeping you awake can be nearly impossible. Hypnotists can assist with sleep deprivation by implanting the suggestion that you have gotten plenty of restful sleep recently. Alternatively, or in addition, they can help you to alter your anxious thought patterns so that they do not spiral out of control and keep you awake (as well as causing the panic attacks that can result in muscle tension).
• Phobic Reactions Going to a hypnotist for help in conquering a phobia (for example, a fear of social situations or crowded rooms) can be far preferable to regularly taking medication in order to remain calm during everyday activities (if, of course, you find that hypnotism works for you). A hypnotist will attempt to replace your unhealthy or illogical beliefs about the object of your phobia with more logically sound and useful beliefs.
Both mild cases of anxiety and clinically diagnosed disorders can result in these side effects. If you have experienced any of the above, finding out whether hypnotism works for you may help you to conquer these difficulties and hopefully eliminate them altogether.

Therapy vs. Hypnosis
Cognitive behavioral therapy (or CBT) is closely related to hypnosis in that it is based on the idea that some problems are not easily addressed through rational thought, and should instead be addressed through training the person to practice healthier thought patterns and to let go of harmful beliefs.
Cognitive behavioral therapy is used by most therapists who work with patients experiencing anxiety and depression. Unlike hypnosis, it does not require a trance state, but like hypnosis, it openly addresses your emotional and mental patterns and beliefs in order to influence your behavior.
If you have been diagnosed with anxiety and feel that therapy has improved you condition, hypnotism is more likely to work for you simply because it operates on similar (and therefore familiar) principles that your mind is already open to.
Hypnosis as Placebo
Your brain is the most powerful organ in your body. Placebo trials in which patients drastically improve without medication due to a belief that their bodies will heal is proof of this. Going to a hypnotist is an attempt to use the power of your beliefs to change your life for the better. In a way, hypnotism is about purposefully using the placebo effect to your advantage.
Unfortunately, according to most research, hypnosis does not really have any effect on long term mental health. There are very few studies that confirm hypnosis has any noticeable effect on the mind. However, there is some evidence that some people may be more easily influenced by hypnosis, so perhaps there are some people that are affected by hypnosis an some that are not.
Regardless, hypnosis is one of those gray areas where there may be something to it for some people, and it is completely safe to do. So if you're looking for some type of alternative treatment and you want to try anxiety hypnosis, it may be worth your time – as long as you know that if it doesn't work for you, you need to try something else.
On the other hand, if you want to try a different type of comprehensive anxiety treatment, make sure you take my anxiety test now. This test is an effective tool for learning more about your anxiety and how to treat it.

How Hypnosis can help with Insomnia.
You are getting very sleepy....
veeeerrrrryyyy sleepy....

If you have insomnia, those can be some very welcome words. Insomnia can be the result of worry, fears, anxiety, and badly functioning brain wave patterns. In order to fall asleep, your brain must go from a BETA brain wave into ALPHA. Alpha state is where everything is dreamy, where visualizations are clear and that sleep switch in your brain is ready to let you go into DELTA and THETA, and be asleep.
So, how do you make this happen?
When the conscious mind is busy, with worry, anxiety, fears, anger, emotional conflicts, etc. the brain has a hard time letting go of its conscious processing. Some people hear music in their head, repeat endless statements with their inner voice or just worry so much about not being able to sleep that they indeed cannot sleep!
If you have insomnia, you know the problem. You start worrying early in the day about whether or not you are actually going to be able to sleep that night. And once you miss a night of sleep, you worry even more about not sleeping the next night. And this PERPETUATES the problem. Worrying about insomnia creates the insomnia.
You can change it. But you are going to need help. Your brain is an expert at having insomnia. It does not know how to do it any differently. If it did, you wouldn't have the sleep disorder any more. So, in order to sleep deep, you are going to have to teach your brain how to go instantly into an alpha state, how to use subconscious triggers to eliminate worry and anxiety and stay asleep once you are asleep.
Hypnosis is very effective in curing chronic insomnia. It is easy. It works. I wish more people would try it, instead of all the pills and drugs. The interesting thing about sleeping pills is the placebo effect. This means that when you think you are taking a sleeping pill, but it is really a sugar pill (placebo) your brain believes that it will fall asleep and so it does.
Sometimes when I can't sleep, I put myself into a state of trance, and imagine that I am taking a sleeping pill. I am usually asleep in a few minutes. Even though my conscious mind knows that this was not real, my unconscious mind does not know and this is the important part.
THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND DOES NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REAL AND AN IMAGINED EVENT. This is why hypnosis works so well. Hypnosis changes the way the unconscious mind works. It creates the belief that something is possible, acts on it as if it is real, and creates a new outcome. In this case, sleep.
