This book debunks the frequent myths of hypnosis as something only done on stage, for entertainment, or as something mysterious and manipulative, instead making plain and simple the power we have to change for the better how we think, feel and behave simply by considering how we use our mind and our language, and the permission (or not) that we give others to influence us.
After an insightful introduction about why the subject of Hypnosis is so worth exploring and the many benefits it can bring, each main chapter then addresses a key question: Where did hypnosis come from and how has it developed over time? How does hypnosis really work? Are there different types of hypnosis? How can it change my life? What are the most powerful techniques? How can I bring hypnosis into my daily life? And, finally, what are the wider social benefits of hypnosis and how can it change the consciousness of the world?
As such, this book brings readers on an exploratory journey through the world of hypnosis, uncovering its immense therapeutic and healing power, and showing readers how to tap into this power for the purposes of personal transformation, so that we can all lead more authentic, connected, contented lives.
