About World Hypnotism Day
The objective of World Hypnosis Day is to remove the myths and misconceptions while promoting the truth and benefits of hypnotism.
World Hypnotism Day has been celebrated since 2006. The date was chosen to honor the Irish hypnotherapist, Dr. Jack Gibson. Jack Stanley Gibson (1909 - 2005) was an Irish surgeon remembered for having advocated the use of hypnosis as an alternative to anesthetics, not only through his surgical practice, but also through popular phonograph records, books, and videotapes.
The uses and benefits of hypnosis
Hypnotism has been used in clinical psychology since the late 19th century. It is a process in which a person is put into a deeper state of relaxation, beyond the normal limits of drowsiness. The subject is placed in a state of heightened suggestibility and then positive suggestions are made to the subject. These suggestions are aimed at altering the way the subject perceives their attitude towards a behavior. This process is repeated with each positive suggestion, changing the behavior and making it permanent.
Hypnosis is an altered state of mind, which means you enter a trance-like state, where you are more receptive to suggestions. With hypnosis, you are given suggestions that will help you achieve your goals and create change in your life. This can be very beneficial. Hypnosis is a natural state that everyone goes through every night when they go to sleep. When you are in a hypnosis session, you are being guided to go into this natural state on your own. Hypnosis has been around for thousands of years.
The first evidence of hypnosis can be found in the writings of Franz Anton Mesmer. Mesmer believed that the universe was filled with a magnetic fluid that permeates everything. He believed that this fluid flows from person to person. He also believed that this fluid can be manipulated by using magnets. By using the power of suggestion, he was able to manipulate the magnetic fluid. This is where the term mesmerize comes from.Find out more
