The Real Truth About Hypnosis

31 Frequently Asked Questions and Answers! (page 4 of 4)

By Dianne Ruth, CCH, PhD

What is hypnotic amnesia?

A sudden distraction can cause temporary hypnotic amnesia, memory loss or forgetfulness.

A common example of this is when a commercial suddenly interrupts a television program during an emotionally charged scene. You are still oriented to the movie.

Meanwhile, the commercial is attempting to sell a posthypnotic suggestion to the behavioral part of your unconscious mind to buy the advertised product, either now or later.

Also, when someone bumps into you in a crowd causing you to feel momentarily disoriented, beware! This is how pickpockets thrive.

The hypnotherapist can also create temporary amnesia through similar methods of distraction or using a verbal confusion technique. The emphasis is on the word “temporary.”

When this takes place, memory is momentarily suspended; however, it generally spontaneously returns in a very brief time, often in just a few moments.


Isn’t traditional “talk therapy” just as effective?

If the change you seek is a behavior or habit, you will need to access the subconscious or inner mind. All habits, emotional response patterns, attitudes and beliefs are in the inner mind.

“Talk therapy” communicates with the conscious mind, not your subconscious. Change can happen; however it takes a lot longer than using hypnotherapy to talk directly to the subconscious, unconscious or inner mind.


DoctorDoes hypnotherapy replace more traditional practices like seeing a doctor, psychologist or psychiatrist?

No. Hypnotherapy is a powerful process for modifying behavior, making alternative improvements, and enhancing personal growth and development. It can be a complementary adjunct to psychological or medical treatments. It is not a replacement.


Why don’t more people get hypnotherapy?

Until recently, many people have only known about hypnosis as a form of stage entertainment or from movies that left much to the imagination or were pure fantasy. As a result, there have been many misconceptions about the benefits of hypnotherapy.

Once most people learn about the value of hypnotherapy, and how powerful it can be for relieving suffering, and for promoting personal growth such as maximizing one’s performance, they are eager to try it.

A powerful movement reviving more humane and natural health processes is gaining ground. Our traditional system supports surgery and “take a pill” to make symptoms go away.

Standard psychotherapy generally takes up to several years to get any measurable results, and then the results may only be mediocre at best.

Hypnotherapy is one of those ancient techniques that is gaining new respectability in the healthcare community.


Can the hypnotist make me do things against my will–like in the movies?

No, a hypnotist or hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything against your will, or anything that is against your personal morals or ethics.

If a suggestion is made by the hypnotherapist that goes against a personal belief, you will simply disregard or ignore it. Your mind has natural defenses against unacceptable suggestions. It will always protect itself.


Will I wake up afterwards? What will happen if I don’t?

Yes, you will wake up. Most everyone will come out of the hypnotic trance state when the hypnotherapist makes the suggestion for them to do so.

 Occasionally, a person is enjoying the euphoria and incredible relaxation so much that they choose to remain in this state for as long as possible because it feels so good.

Usually, when the hypnotherapist stops talking for a while, the person becomes aware of the silence and comes back to the present on his or her own.

At the outside, if the person is not immediately responsive to the hypnotherapist’s suggestion to wake up and return to the present, the person will drift into a normal sleep state and then wake up naturally. Nobody ever gets “stuck” in hypnosis!

During the session, if there is an emergency, or you no longer want to participate, you can easily awaken yourself at any time.


What about past life regression? Is it real or a hoax?

Many people, religions, and philosophies believe in reincarnation or past lives. There has been a wealth of documented and verified cases giving evidence of past life recall discovered through hypnosis.

There are tons of books written on the subject and movies made with reincarnation as a theme. At one time, the majority of the earth’s population believed in reincarnation.

Reincarnation is a belief and therefore subjective. Proving the existence of it can be cloudy at best.

I once had a young man by the name of Rick come to me with a fear of flying. He wanted to be hypnotized to find out why.

He described his fear as a huge crushing pressure on his chest and having trouble breathing when the plane would take off.

Guiding him into a comfortable trance state, I suggested that his unconscious mind would be able to go back to the event that created this fear.

Rick’s voice suddenly became that of a hysterical young boy as he described his petrifying experience of going through a near drowning where he felt as if his chest was going to explode.

He was subsequently rescued by his father. He was 12-years-old. He and his family had been out on their boat in a harbor for a relaxing Sunday outing when he fell overboard. This event took place in the 17th century.

I helped him do some release work right then to clear the memory of the negative emotions that had kept him stuck in the past.

When he came back to present time, he was stunned. He commented that the memory felt so completely and frighteningly real; however, he had never been a believer in reincarnation–at least, not until he had that experience!

The positive outcome was that he was able to fly in a plane with total enjoyment and without any discomfort from then on.

The question is, did his unconscious mind make up that memory to explain his symptoms? Does it really matter? Whether it was real or not, in hypnotherapy, the goal of helping the client achieve healing, relief and resolution is what really counts.


Can a person make up experiences while under hypnosis?

There is no guarantee that all information given under hypnosis is real or accurate. Some people are able to easily fabricate and lie under hypnosis.

The skilled hypnotist or hypnotherapist will have ways to know if the subject is lying, however. Actually, a person can even lie after an injection of truth serum.

Other situations include inaccuracies of subjective memory. For example, three friends can be standing on a corner and witness an auto accident. Each will have a different perspective and may recall different details.

A video camera may have also captured the incident. People who later watch the video may also have different reactions and interpretations! Accuracy in memory can be questionable at best.

The idea that some people can be coaxed into “remembering” past events that never took place has become the platform for some groups to discredit claims of childhood sexual abuse that sometimes comes up during psychotherapy or hypnotherapy.

It seems that the False Memory Syndrome Institute was created by parents facing charges of abuse by their adult children who had undergone therapy. These parents felt they had been falsely accused and claim that the accusations stem from ideas or suggestions implanted in their children’s minds by the therapists.

19 Little Known Characteristics  of Hypnosis

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, psychotherapy only has a 20% success rate.

I have a 97% success rate, and over 37 years experience.

I honor and respect your race, religion, culture, sexual orientation and way of life including senior citizens and those with disabilities.

I also welcome adults in consensual, sane and safe, alternative sexual and other creative lifestyle choices including those in the LGBTQ+ community.
