How Hypnosis Works and Why – The REAL Truth


If you go to any professional hypnotist’s website, you’re likely to find a list of bullets somewhere that tells you things about hypnosis like:

  • Hypnosis is not a form of mind control
  • A person can’t be made to say or do anything they don’t want to while in hypnosis
  • A person can never be ’stuck’ in hypnosis
  • When in hypnosis, you are not asleep. Rather you are aware of everything that is said and done and when emerged you’ll remember everything.

… and so on.

While (for the most part,) these statements are correct, if  you like me,  have an inquisitive mind, these statements by themselves are not enough.  I mean, after all, “Why should I just take your word for it with no further explanation?”  Of course, if you see these same statements made by several different sources, you’re likely to accept them as truth.  And fair enough, so do I.  But the question remains, even if these statements are true, why are they true?

There has been a lot written about about hypnosis; about what it is, how it works and why.  Some of it is obscure, complicated and technical.  Some of it is sensationalist. However, much of it just pure fantasy or just plain wrong.

After many years of study and practice in this field, I finally landed on an explanation that answered all the questions that came up in my mind as I explored the theory behind the subject. It’s not my explanation, but one provided by one of the living masters of hypnosis: Gerry Kein out of DeLand Florida.

It’s a very simple model, but yet very comprehensive and connects all the dots.  It all begins with understanding how the mind works (which in and of itself can be mind-boggling, depending on the source.) And with this understanding, from there it is easy to see ‘what’ hypnosis is and ‘how’ and ‘why’ it works.  And finally, it explains how and why the commonly made statements listed above are true.

I won’t dive into any further detail here because I’ve published a 28 page report that explains it all in plain and simple language that you can access from our website. To get it, just go to and enter your name and email address in the box titled “Free Report: The REAL Truth About Hypnosis”.

Yes, you’ll need to enter your email address to get it, but don’t sweat it: you won’t be deluged with spam! We won’t sell or pass on your contact info to anyone. It’s just to help us get a sense of who is interested in learning more about our services and/or hypnosis as we go forward and publish topical information.  Just go there and get the paper.  If that’s all you’re interested in you can unsubscribe at any time.

If you’re interested in hypnosis and/or in following the postings on this blog, this is the foundational piece that will help you to understand everything else that’s posted from here on out.  It’s a great read that explains the whole field in a nutshell!

,I have been watching your viedos here and they all seem to be very informative, yet one question remains on my mind.What about foreign language usage during hypnosis? Lets say, that during the hypnosis the hypnotist reaches the subconscious levels of the patient’s mind and by doing so reduces the role of the logical apparatus (if I understand hypnosis correct). Now if the so called logical apparatus is reduced is it still possible for the patient to understand foreign language during any sort of communication? I image that it is possible to have an understanding of the language without the logical apparatus making the comprehension more intuitive (anyone who knows any other language than their mother tongue good enough should understand what I mean), but what about those languages that were used/practiced by the patient less than those wich became (or are becoming) more intuitive and closer to the mother tongue? Or maybe I’m just making a huge mistake with any sort of anatomy of the brain/mind and language/sound percieving?

Whorwell (1984) reported successful management of Irritable Bowel Syndrome using Hypnosis
in a controlled study of a group of patients who a severe chronic kind of the disorder together not answered conventional
therapies. If it worked before for me personally, I feel it can work again.

The sole way to tell if someone is utilizing covert hypnosis
giving you is to study the field yourself.
