MYTHS & MISCONCEPTIONS?

For some people, hypnosis carries an aura of mystery and power. Classic old movies show a hypnotherapist (usually a man in a dark suit) swinging a pendulum, then the person watching the pendulum suddenly drops off into oblivion. Understandably, people are left wondering what really happens. This is a misleading portrayal of the hypnosis process. Hypnosis is a natural, safe, deepened state of awareness with many beneficial characteristics.

The person experiencing hypnotic “trance” is… 

  • aware of their surroundings, emotions, words and actions
  • can verbally and physically communicate
  • can easily direct, alter and, or end the hypnosis session
  • can not be externally controlled or compromised
  • can not get trapped in hypnosis
HOW DOES IT FEEL TO BE HYPNOTIZED?

It really a great feeling! Can you remember how it feels just before you fall asleep at night? Hypnosis is a natural state that feels similar almost like that.

When you awaken from hypnosis, you feel refreshed and revitalized. You will feel as if you were relaxing in a very comfortable space. You will be able to hear everything like my voice, the sounds outside the building, a car going down the street outside. Another good way to think about is, relaxation is a subjective experience (for example, some people relax at the beach, for others, it is chopping wood), so is hypnotic trance subjective experience and what each person feels. One thing people love is that the feeling is the opposite to stress, so you will feel relaxed and calm.

IS HYPNOSIS AN "ALTERED STATE OF CONSCIOUSNESS"?

No. Hypnosis is a natural phenomena that occurs in everyone’s life on a daily basis, even though we might not recognize it as such.

It is similar to the first five minutes of sleep, where you know you could open your eyes and get up, but it feels so good you simply choose not to – or when you get in your car after work and drive the 30 minutes home, and then wonder if you actually stopped at all the stoplights along the way.

In life we are either highly alert, asleep, or somewhere in the middle; there is nowhere else for the brain to go. While it is true that in the process of clinical hypnosis we will alter the level of high alertness to a more relaxed pace, this is not a “6th dimension” or some magical place or out of body experience or any such strange thing. It is simply relaxation, something you are capable of experiencing at any time.

IS IT AGAINST MY RELIGION TO UNDERGO HYPNOSIS?

Hypnosis is a totally natural state; it is safe, effective and has no side effects.

We have a natural ability to use our mind to create healthy bodies and make healthy decisions.

I can think of no religion that does not want us to use natural, safe, and effective methods of problem resolution to make our lives better.

It is important to realize that all “trance” phenomena or characteristics of hypnosis occur all the time. In ordinary life, we use the creative part of the mind, we accomplish tasks by utilizing the subconscious learnings of our mind, and we experience states of relaxation. In clinical hypnosis, we are simply using the ordinary mental processes of the subconscious mind in a systemic way to solve problems that are destructive in life.

Perhaps the confusion on this issue comes because some religious groups use trance for meditation or attaining “spiritual enlightenment,” but because a religious application of the methods of hypnosis can be utilized, does not make hypnosis a religious act.

Some people, who do not truly understand the nature of clinical hypnosis, are opposed to “opening the mind” or “turning the mind” over to outside forces. In hypnosis you are always fully aware, and never are you “‘controlled” by another. These beliefs come from a misunderstanding of what hypnosis is, probably based on Hollywood myths.

Johnathan Smith does not offer enlightenment training, help people recover repressed memories, charm snakes, find “past lives” or any other religious or non-clinical application of hypnosis not accepted by the medical and clinical community. Johnathan Smith does provide structured direct suggestion and the tools necessary to live life to its fullest.

Its simply use the natural functions of concentration, relaxation, and the natural abilities of our subconscious mind to resolve difficulties that have caused us problems in life. This is something any healthy religion would actually encourage people to do.

AM I UNDER THE CONTROL OF ANOTHER PERSON?

No. All hypnosis is actually self-hypnosis; a hypnotist merely guides you into your own experience of relaxation.

A good analogy is that of the hypnotist sitting in the passenger seat of a car, reading map directions to the driver (the client). The driver can listen and follow the suggestions given by the passenger, or they can choose to go their own way, because the driver is always in control.

A person who is hypnotized can awaken themselves at any time, and the hypnotist cannot make someone do something that they otherwise would not want to do.

Those who fear that the hypnotist has some kind of “magical” power or “mind control” ability simply do not understand how the mind works. These concepts are myths, not realities, in clinical and medical hypnotherapy. Although the results may seem amazing or miraculous, there is truly nothing ‘mystical’ about hypnosis.

Yes, Johnathan Smith can also utilize his unique entertainment as a tool to promote specific products, events, or services.

DO YOU GIVE LESSONS?
No.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A MAGICIAN AND A MENTALIST AND A HYPNOTIST?

Mentalism is a sub-genre of magic focused on presentations involving observation, influence, and prediction. It’s a dramatic performance relying on psychological techniques.

Hypnotist has the skills of putting someone into a metal state like sleep, in which their thoughts can be easily influenced by someone else.
