People think that hypnotherapists only put people INTO trance. But a vastly significant percentage of the work a good hypnotherapist does is help people OUT of the unhealthy trances they’re in. Take a look around and see if it isn’t so! Who doesn’t have an IPOD attached to their head or a phone on their ear? Who isn’t spending hours staring at a TV or hooked into the internet. Our culture is now almost entirely media driven—we’re surrounded (all the time!) by advertising, media, and even music that tells us what we need, who to love, and what drugs to take to make us happy.
We don’t know who we are or what we’re doing here, but we are convinced that Viagra or a breast implant will somehow make it all better.
There are more pervasive cultural delusions that I can go through in one post but this is a brief list. We’ll go through each one of them in a series.
