Hypnosis is a state of mind where the conscious mind stands on the sidelines and allows the subconscious to be receptive to suggestions.
Given a new suggestion, the subconscious mind accepts it literally as a new reality. The ability to reprogram emotional attitudes and reactions is a latent talent within every human being.
Hypnosis is the most functional and reasonable way to train life-long attitudes, rather than suffer a lifetime of emotional accidents that the conscious mind is unable to change.
People of average intelligence can be hypnotized in most cases if they are willing and do not resist.
- The American Medical Association and the American Psychiatric Association have approved hypnotherapy for use by professionally responsible individuals.
- The British Medical Association also adopted hypnosis as a viable therapeutic tool in 1958.
