The Many Uses for Hypnosis

After spending a few days in foreign places and being introduced to a variety of people, the inevitable questions about hypnosis traveled with me. I am not complaining. I am always thrilled to have an opportunity to discuss my favorite subject. That is one of the fun aspects of telling people about what I do - there seems to always be a fascination. Do brain surgeons get this or do people just smile and say "that's interesting" and go about their day? Or do they get, "How fascinating. I've always wanted an up-close-and-personal view of the raw brain. Tell me, is brain matter more grey or pink?"

After listening to these questions (about hypnosis, not brain surgery) it made me think about some of the comments you have posted, emailed me, or that I have seen on various forum discussions. There seems to be a huge variety of opinions of how hypnosis is best used. It runs a large gamut from esoteric study to healing arts, not to mention the entertainment value. And many of us indulge in all of it. The poll is located on the upper right side of the blog.

So that led me to today's poll topic of hypno uses. Please vote for your favorite options and if you put "other," please consider posting what that "other" is on this posting's comments.

Too bad hypnosis is not appreciated that much today. It can be used for so many things, it is almost creepy.

Thanks for posting!

I believe there is fair amount of acceptance out there when it comes to hypnosis. There are a lot of us working on bringing it out more and educating the public on its values. You are right. It can be used for so many things. But creepy, how so?
