    Hello, this is really a great post, I haven’t seen anyone getting hypnotised or doing the hypnosis therapy but I  remember watching a movie last year where a man was cured of a smoking addiction through hypnosis. He only remembered that he slept off, nothing more and then the next day, whenever he was a smoke stick he’d feel like puking. So I think hypnosis really works. For me, I think I’d try it out for my sleep, I usually have problem sleeping because of work. Thanks for putting this up, nice post.

      Hi, yes, it is very real and effective for overcoming smoking. My friend also got hypnosis to cure her of her smoking addiction and it actually worked! I honestly believe it is very effective for overcoming whatever you want it to.

    Hi Kat, I really like the creativity on your website. And by the way, I am a spiritual person and finding something like this on the Internet always amazes me. The content has got great depth and while going through your blogs, I was feeling like everything is so well connected that it will actually be helping me in life. Anxiety & depression is so common these days that people don’t really realize the actual cause of it. Hats off to the effective treatments and methods that are explained by you. I am sure that I will be helped by doing such exercises in my routine life.

    Thanks for your post. It is a timely article for me. I stared my online business this year. The work load is much more heavy than I imaged. I need to sit in the front of my computer and work more that 15 hours a day. Still I don’t see the income coming. It is very stress situation for me right now.

    I have some kind of anxiety. Your article gives me some guidance. Maybe hypnosis will help my situation. I like your quote in the article: If you want a different outer world you have to change your inner world. I see that you recommend some online program for anxiety. I am going to look into it and try to practice half hour a day. What do you think?

    It is kind of you sharing this useful information with us.

      Hi Anthony, Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts here. Starting an online business can be stressful when you have pressures to make it work and be successful. Anxiety is very common unfortunately and it’s tough for anyone who experiences it. 

      I would recommend that to help you manage anxiety you slow your breathing down, practice some grounding strategies and self soothing techniques and do some meditations during the day during your allocated 30 mins. Then follow up with listening to hypnosis before going to sleep. It takes time and work to actively engage in working to lower and manage the anxiety but it can be done. All the best and take care of you

    This subject is of great interest to me. It fascinates me that the mind can be altered both positively and negatively and I am always deeply interested when I see examples of this in others and myself. Hypnosis I have always believed to be a tool to help us out, but I don’t have the budget to seek it for myself. Instead I meditate and is particularly useful to me to calm me down or to take me away from thoughts that give me anxiety for example. It helped me give up smoking after 35 years. If I had the money to spare though, I would use hypnotherapy.

    • Kat says:

      Hi Rina, I too find it interesting how we can influence our minds through hypnosis. It’s so good knowing it’s possible to help us change our subconscious thought patterns too. It can be so annoying when you’re aware of something but just can’t shift it. Well done for being able to quit smoking. That’s one of the hardest things to quit. The hypnosis options I’ve listed here a very affordable. The hardest I’ve found it choosing only one at a time. All the best ~kat

    I have never tried hypnosis, but I have been fighting with anxiety, insomnia, and phobias most of my life. I was on medication, but I did not like being Zombie Mom so I stopped taking them.

    These days when I have a panic attack, I work myself through it.

    If I can’t sleep, I stop trying and get u and do some stuff around the house. And with my phobias, I just avoid situations that trigger them.

    I had not thought of doing hypnosis but after reading your post, I am going to look further into it. I have to admit, I had considered it for issues with memories from my childhood, but I am hesitant because I do not want to go through all that effort (and money!) just to get stuck with false memories.

    Thank you for this information. I will be bookmarking your page.

    It wasn’t until anxiety really floored me that I now realized that I couldn’t always control what was happening to me and when I felt really stuck with it, I couldn’t avoid it or maybe run away. This article provides a well detailed explanation of what anxiety exactly is and makes it brilliantly clear how hypnosis can treat it effectively. I don’t just want to manage my anxiety, I want to also get rid of the root causes of why I’m experiencing this in the first place.

    Thanks!

    • Kat says:

      Hey there Jordan, anxiety really sucks. It can be very challenging to shift it when it takes a hold. I hope that you can find ways to manage the anxiety through here as I have a big focus on anxiety particularly as well as strategies to help it. I believe hypnosis is an additional tool to help shift those root causes of it too due to its ability to shift subconscious beliefs that we may not even be aware of. Be sure to have a read through the grounding post and self soothing as additional strategies to help you overcome anxiety when it hits. Cheers ~kat

    I know hypnosis works because I used it for quitting smoking years ago.  I, however, had NO idea it could be used for so many things.  Anxiety?  That’s wonderful.  Do you know how many friends I have that suffer from horrific anxiety?  I had no idea.  The other one that surprised me a lot was wealth creation.  That’s amazing.  I’ve read so many books about mindset and wealth, but I never thought there was hypnosis for that!  How cool is that?

  9. Jill says:

    Hey,  What a beautifully written and informative article.  Thank you.  I am on the same page that we all live our lives according to the limiting beliefs passed down from our parents, teachers and yes, even the social norms.  This mindset will take us nowhere and keeps us stuck in our comfort zones.  Hypnosis and many other modern techniques give us the capabilities to step out of these “so called” comfort zones and into a meaningful life.  A life the way it was meant to be:  “A Hell Of A Ride” .  So grateful there are people like you heralding in modern techniques to progress us to a new norm.  Again thank you, for serving others.   Cheers Jill  

    • Kat says:

      Hi Jill, thanks for the lovely feedback and encouragement. I do hope I can help people stretch people’s comfortable zone as well as work through strategies to help people improve their lives. All the best ~kat

  10. Polash says:

    I think this is really a great post for me. I had no experience afterwards about hypnosis therapy. However, I researched this further. It always serves as our helpful tool. I spoke to a man who told me that through this hypnosis therapy he was relieved of a bad addiction. I have had a bad habit of smoking. I have to accept it to get rid of this habit.
    Thanks for a great post.

    • Kat says:

      Hi Polash thanks for sharing. Initially I was skeptical too, but over the years, I’ve learnt that it works with our subconscious mind which helps how we respond and use our conscious mind. It is very effective for addictions. A good friend of mine also used it for quitting smoking, and since then she hasn’t had any cravings or desire to smoke again. It’s amazing how effective it can be. ~kat

  11. Dave Sweney says:

    I was always wondering if hypnosis can help with anxiety and other issues. I have heard good things so decided to do some research. You have aided that process through this article and I have a clearer picture of how it can be incorporated into a regimen to address anxiety and much more.

    Like many people, my impression of hypnosis goes back to what you saw on TV, where people were doing funny things they would never do unless under hypnosis. I had no idea back then that there was a whole other side to the practice. It is clear that it can be used for anxiety and a lot more.

    As I was reading through all the maladies that can be addressed, it was clear to me that I needed to adjust what I thought about hypnosis and how it can be used. It is a lot more than fun and games. I will be adding this therapy as part of my overall health regimen…

    I am hopeful that it can improve my outlook on life and even have some very physical positive outcomes for me as well…In tandem with some of the other activities and measures, I am sure that hypnosis can make a positive difference in my life in a number of ways. Thanks for opening my eyes to the power of hypnosis!

    Great information!
    I’ve been a sometimes practitioner and long time believer in hypnosis.
    The mind is a fascinating subject … and something I think everyone should take the time to explore.
    Do you know if there have been any studies done on the brain while a person was in a hypnotic state?
    It would be interesting to see how the brain responds to hypnosis while being view in a PET scan.
    Very interesting topic.

    • Kat says:

      Hi Poppa, wow you’ve practiced hypnosis yourself that’s wonderful. Thanks for stopping by. It is very fascinating how the mind can work. Your question is a good one, and makes me want to go and look up and do some research to find out. I too wonder how the brain would respond to a hypnosis. I’m sure it would show some kind of differences. I’ll look into this further. 

  13. Tony burse says:

    WOW.Great comments. You covered a lot of topis. Did not realize that hypnosis has so many benefits.

  14. Selenity Jade says:

    I’ve always heard that hypnosis can help a lot of things, but I’ve always been scared to try, plus you know finances.  I’m actually really curious about this too.  Can you actively hypnotize yourself?  I know they say it’s possible, I’m kind of leery of letting myself be in control of that.  Plus I’m not very relaxed and knowing my luck, I probably can’t be hypnotized!  But it got me thinking, thanks a ton!

    • Kat says:

      Hey, it can be a little daunting at first when you allow yourself to be hypnotised. It is about trusting the process and for self hypnosis Also whether you feel that the hypnosis is real and trustworthy. I promote ehypnosis as I’ve also purchased some of their hypnosis downloads and know it’s the real deal. So I trust this process and allow myself to let go and relax as the hypnosis progresses and talks you through the topic you have chosen. Doing it at home feels much safer for me than being in front of someone guiding me with the hypnosis, plus it’s cheaper. I hope this helps ~kat

  15. Krystyn Silva says:

    I’ve always considered hypnosis to help with my personal anxiety and self consciousness. After reading this, I believe I will be giving it a shot in the near future. Thank you for such an informative article, I feel so much more confident in my understanding for how hypnosis would help. 

    • Kat says:

      It’s good to hear that this has helped you consider hypnosis as a viable option in your approach to helping you manage anxiety. It really can be beneficial and shift subconscious beliefs and help you change how you respond. All the best. ~kat

  16. My Daily Pointers says:

    Thank you for the reminder that our brain is programmed to keep us in our comfort zone.  I needed this reminder to push myself.

    I have never heard of hypnosis for wealth creation.  I know I deal with my money because of the values my parents hold.

    However, the option I am most interested in is for weight loss.  My weight has always been a struggle. I always have great intentions but somehow fail every time.  Perhaps this could work for me.

    • Kat says:

      As our current situation is the outcome of our brain’s thought processes, it has powerful effects on many aspects of our lives including our weight. As it works on our subconscious it can help us shift how we think about foods, how we respond when we are tempted and can thus help with how we approach weight loss goals. Let me know if you do decide to give hypnosis a try as part of your weight loss goals. ~kat

    Great post thanks for sharing! Brain Plasticity is a great point. not many people believe that we have the ability to strengthen our brains and change the way we think. but it’s true! I’m actually reading a book about that called Switch on your brain by Caroline leaf. All though it’s not directly related to Hypnosis, it does explain the science of how the brain changes on a daily basis and how being aware of this process allows us to make changes in our favor. Thanks for sharing again. love reading your stuff!

    • Kat says:

      Hey Daniel, that book sounds great, I might look into reading it myself. I love reading about brain plasticity and changing neural pathways that helps us continue to grow and flourish if we choose to. Hypnosis definitly has a place in being able to change our mindset and how we function in our everyday activities. thanks for sharing your thoughts and ideas ~kat

    Sounds like you know a lot about hypnosis. Anxiety is one of the issues I’ve had many clients for. Hypnotherapy has been one of my best tools to help them beat it.

    Knowing our mind is plastic and is able to be reshaped, I feel hypnosis is one of the strongest modalities to do so.

    It’s great that people are getting over there entertainment of hypnosis fear and accepting it as a healing modality. Creating a shift in a person to totally transform their life is one of the best feelings a hypnotherapist can have.

    • Kat says:

      Hi Jagi, it’s great to hear from you and you’ve found hypnosis valuable in your work with those who experience anxiety. It’s very effective for helping one overcome anxiety. I often do a guided meditation with my clients to help them relax and lower their experience of anxiety. Hypnosis certainly has the power to help one shift their negative experiences or desire to change one’s behaviors. ~kat
