The Power of Hypnosis

Hypnosis teaches that the mind can do things while in a hypnotic trance that we think it “can’t” do when not in a trance.  Time can be expanded or condensed.  Things that normally take one amount of  time can be experienced  as slowed down like they are in slow motion or as speeded up.  Material (which ordinarily would take hours to relive in real time) can be  completely remembered in a short amount of time during hypnosis.  Hypnosis enhances memory and aids recall.  It is used when a person can not remember something they experienced or if they can remember it, they can’t do so in great detail.  It enhances a remembered experience so that it feels like it is happening right in the moment.   Sensory experiences also can be intensified when doing this.  I was hypnotized by a trained, experienced hypnotist.  While under hypnosis, I remembered a party I had attended a couple of days earlier in great, vivid detail.  I could “see” the food that was served and how it was presented and also I could “see” and remember all  the people that were there.  I also could have answered detailed questions about it which I could not have done had I not been hypnotized.

The person being hypnotized can perceive things and do things that they could not do in a waking state.  An exception to this is when a hypnotized person is given a post hypnotic suggestion.  This  occurs when a person is told they will have a certain experience or do something after they come out of trance. They are also told when they will do this after the trance is over.  For example the hypnotist might say a certain word after the trance. The person then does what has been suggested and is usually surprised by his or her behavior; because this is usually done with the suggestion that the person will have amnesia for the command. These things include anesthesia, altered perceptions, and increased or a new ability to do something like public speaking. Redness and blisters can appear if a hypnotized person is told to touch something he thinks is hot but it is only a hypnotic suggestion and the thing is not actually hot. Wouldn’t it be amazing if people could learn how to do these things without being in a trance to do them.
