What Are The Benefits of Learning Hypnosis?
An “education” implies an intentional learning and study in a particular field. Have you considered learning hypnosis? What would it be like if you made hypnosis your field of study? How would you make your life better?
Having both studied and taught hypnosis I’ve seem people make incredible changes by learning about hypnosis. From learning hypnosis they learn about themselves and about the inner workings of the mind. Many, like myself, turn it into a profession and earn an income. Others take their knowledge into other fields to help them professionally and in their other relationship. They become more persuasive, more passionate and begin to see deeper into the motivations of others.
But where would you start?
The first obstetrical you would face is where to learn. There are plenty of good books on hypnosis but a skilled hypnotist, or any craftsman or expert, won’t learn entirely from reading. They need guidance from experienced professionals and hands on experience working with people.
Early on I’ve had a fascination with hypnosis. That fascination compelled me to seek out every book on hypnosis that I could find. For every useful book there were others that were either confusing, poorly written or a repeat of other work. A person less passionate about hypnosis might have lost interest.
There are people and organizations that teach hypnosis. What you’ll find is that their content varies widely. Even their idea of what hypnosis is may vary. Some hypnosis trainings teach only what I call relax-o-therapy, a progressive relaxation process that will put clients to sleep much more often than actually hypnotizing them. Some hypnosis schools portray themselves as the Hogwarts School of Hypnotism and treat hypnosis as a metaphysical medium of disembodied beings.
What I truly wanted was a hypnosis training that was objective, understandable and easy to apply, not a magic woo woo ritual that leaves everyone wondering if hypnosis works.
Much of what I learned about hypnosis came from doing hypnosis one-on-one with anyone I could find. Eventually, in 1998, I started doing hypnosis professionally full time. Through these one-on-one hypnosis interactions I got my greatest understandings about hypnosis.
Meeting My Mentor
In 2006, I met a man who would change everything I thought about hypnosis. Jeff Stephens, was a great hypnotist who had been practicing hypnosis years longer than I had. Jeff had a unique way of thinking. He would never assume anything someone told him about hypnosis was true. Instead he would try to prove it himself. If someone said “Can hypnosis help me with this problem?” he would answer “Let’s find out.”
Jeff discovered most of what’s taught in hypnosis trainings is out dated and unnecessary.
Over the years Jeff honed is understanding of hypnosis down to an easy to understand process. Learning with him was fun and the things his students would experience were amazing! After learning one of Jeff’s hypnosis techniques I witnessed one of his students make someone hallucinate a unicorn in the lobby of a hotel. He also completely removed the person’s fear of elevators. And this was just the first day of the training!
I realized THAT is the type of hypnosis training that would really benefit people.
Jeff Stephens, died in 2014 but the legacy of his hypnosis work is continuing here. We were immensely fortunate that Jeff Stephens recorded his hypnosis training and has made it available for the world.
I was inspired to turn it into an equally easy to understand three session process for hypnotist to use in their professional practice. When you study Advanced Hypnosis: The Three Session Process That Gets Results you get to see Jeff Stephens hypnosis method taken to another level with real hypnosis clients going through each session. Each session is complete with commentary giving you a details understanding and explanation of the process.
Not everyone who learns this technique becomes a professional hypnotist. But everyone will benefit from the experience and the knowledge gained. Just a few of the benefits of learning hypnosis are:
- Greater sense of understanding about peoples deeper motivations
- You possess are real tool you can use to help people improve their lives
- Greater sense of control and power
- Becoming more persuasive and able to influence others
- More self-confidence
- … and much more!
How far you want to go is completely up to you.
