Many people are fascinated with the idea of learning to hypnotize others. We hear about “mesmerizing” another person and some people find it captivating to think about the influence we can have over others.
How many songs have you heard say that a person was “mesmerized” and “hypnotized” as if there was a power that could take hold of your mind and completely overcome your regular waking consciousness? There are many myths and misconceptions about hypnosis. Yet, there are many sincere people who want to learn hypnosis in a way that is grounded in ethical, high standards of professionalism as well as a deep spirituality that honors the sacred nature of all relationships.
Only with this combination can we be truly helpful to others and use our skills from the highest places of integrity and love. Read more here about a life worth living where you learn hypnosis in alignment with your deepest spiritual sentiments…
Can hypnosis be learned from a spiritual perspective?
Yes! We believe that everything can be utilized from either an egoic point of view or a spiritual perspective. From the ego, we might try to manipulate others for our own selfish gains. However, from a spiritual perspective, we understand that we are all one and that altered states can remind us of our collective unity and unified consciousness. From this place of Oneness Consciousness, we understand that making powerful shifts in the mind make powerful shifts in the world.
When a student who is learning hypnosis is invited to dive deeper into the world’s great wisdom traditions, then the mind opens up to undreamed of possibilities for healing, transformation and increased levels of awareness about who we really are and what we are really here for.
Are my own beliefs respected?
Absolutely. However, if your own beliefs cause you suffering, then we invite you to revisit your thinking so that you can simply be happier and more productive in your life. Everyone will have their own spiritual and/or religious beliefs and those are all deeply respected. Many people also hold very negative and limiting beliefs that bind them to a life of depression, anxiety, loneliness and despair.
Those beliefs can be respected, and they can also be allowed to transform and to be released. Once we move beyond false and limiting beliefs, then hypnotherapy shows us a world of peace, love, oneness, joy and bliss that is always there awaiting our discovery.
Is this a legitimate profession?
Yes! Hypnotherapy is acknowledged by the US Department of Labor and the US Department of Education. At the Institute of Hypnotherapy, we are the first school licensed by the Commission for Independent Education to offer legitimate diplomas as a Transpersonal Hypnotherapist. With such credentials, you can bring your own spirituality into a profession where you care for others and help them transform their lives. Many graduates of our hypnotherapy school make a full-time living doing just that.
Imagine a life where you can truly be yourself, help others in profound ways, and earn a living doing what you love in alignment with who you are. Call us at 800-551-9247 or visit us online at www.InstituteofHypnotherapy.com to learn more about a career that changes lives.
