All About Hypnosis (Especially For The Skeptics) — Ep. 85

by | Feb 22, 2021 | Podcast

Let me guess, you hear the word “hypnosis” and you get a bit skeptical. “Isn’t that what they do to people on stage and then have them make a total fool of themselves?” The short answer, nope, not at all!

There are so many myths and misconceptions that surround hypnotherapy and, in this episode, I’m going to debunk them all so you can really understand the power and purpose of this effective mindset tool.

“Hypnosis = meditation with a goal.” – Shawn Mynar

“Hypnosis is rehearsing the life that you want and taking on the identity you want and doing it all in a relaxed state… your subconscious mind gets exercised when you do this.”  – Shawn Mynar

“Take the time to get into a deeply relaxed state and insert the affirmations that you want to start believing about yourself.” – Shawn Mynar

“No matter what habits or actions you want to change, you have to work on the mind first.” – Shawn Mynar
