What is hypnosis? self-Hypnosis? NLP?
Hypnosis is a natural state that we go through every day. In fact, we are in hypnosis when we fall asleep or wake up in the morning or even when we read or watch a movie. Hypnosis has been studied scientifically and is based on many years of clinical research by psychologists and doctors such as Sigmund Freud, Carl Jung as well as more recently by Milton Erickson, M.D. and John Kappas, Ph.D.
When hypnosis is performed solely by you, it is referred to as “self-hypnosis.” Self-hypnosis is very beneficial when working with general self-improvement issues. It is not recommended for more serious or deep-seated mental or emotional concerns. The more you use self-hypnosis in your daily life the more effective and rapid these changes will be.
NLP stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming, an acronym that links the three elements involved in producing human experience: neurology, language, and programming. The neurological system regulates how our bodies function, language determines how we communicate with other people and our programming results in the models of the world we create.

Laws of Suggestibility
- Reverse Action
The most common law, it’s sometimes referred to as Reverse Psychology. A person will respond to the stronger part of a suggestion if the alternative presented is considerably weaker.
It is represented by the fact that the more we do something, the better we become at it. By repeating suggestions in hypnosis, the stronger the suggestive idea becomes.
The use of authority or that of being an authority figure to “command” the client to accept a suggestion. Capitalizing on one’s position as “therapist” or by using an authoritative tone are two approaches to apply the Law of Dominance.
- Delayed Action
When a suggestion is inferred, the individual will react to it whenever a jogging condition or situation that has been used in the original suggestive idea presents itself.
Whenever we repeatedly respond to a particular stimulus in the presence of another, we will soon begin to associate one with the other. Whenever either stimulus is present, the other is recalled. The post suggestion to re-hypnosis works under this law.
