You don’t have to be an expert on hypnosis to be able to have your mind melted in delicious seduction. But since there are lots of misconceptions about what hypnosis is, it’s helpful to have a basic understanding of how it works and what it can do for you.
If you’re new to the practice, or just have a curious mind (me too!), you’re probably wondering:
• Does it really work?
• Is it … (ahem) magic?
It’s okay to have questions! In fact, I encourage them. The more you can understand about what the human mind is capable of (and let your inhibitions wash away), the better positioned you’ll be for deep, blissful surrender.
So, let’s dive right in! What is hypnosis, exactly?
Hypnosis: the clinical definition
For you inquisitive types, let’s start with the clinical definition and then break it down into more relatable terms.
Hypnosis is an induced state of consciousness that involves focused attention, reduced peripheral awareness and a heightened response to suggestion. Mayo Clinic defines it as “a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration.”
Okay, but what does that mean?
In more basic terms, I usually describe light hypnosis as being awake, but “zoned out.”
It’s a natural brainwave state, just prior to sleep. So, when you’re under hypnosis, you usually feel calm, relaxed and carefree. This makes you (and your mind) more open to suggestion.
A powerful technique with a long history
Various forms of hypnosis have been used by various cultures for hundreds of years. Modern hypnotic techniques, as we think of them today, became more commonplace in the 20th century.
When properly induced, hypnosis can be an extremely powerful method for helping people achieve a wide variety of psychological and physiological goals.
But don’t just take my word for it
The American Psychological Association (APA) writes, “Most clinicians now agree [hypnosis] can be a powerful, effective therapeutic technique for a wide range of conditions, including pain, anxiety and mood disorders.”
The APA notes that hypnosis has been shown to help people change their habits (such as quitting smoking or gambling) and even recover from medical problems such as depression and gastro-intestinal disorders.
Conversations about hypnosis are often about eliminating something “bad” (like smoking) – but the reverse is also true. Hypnosis can be used to unlock amazing, positive emotions and experiences. That’s where I come in …
What is erotic hypnosis?
Erotic hypnosis uses the tools of hypnosis, but in a sensual manner.
The erotic hypnosis that I specialize in, as a former clinical hypnotherapist, is designed to enhance the feelings and desires that are already present within you. I help you to bring them out … help you to discover your deepest desires … and to become an obedient submissive.
My particular style is soothing, seductive and enchanting (no humiliation or degradation here on DeepSurrender!).
What hypnosis is NOT
By now, I hope it’s clear that hypnosis is a widely practiced therapeutic technique, backed up by decades of research and client success stories.
But since I get this question a lot, I want to stress that hypnosis is:
• NOT magic
• NOT a spell
• NOT something that can make you do things you disapprove of
