What are the negative consequences of hypnosis/autoquestioning?

Question by Hummm interesting…: What are the negative consequences of hypnosis/autoquestioning?
Could someone please tell me what the negative consequences of hypnosis/autoquestionge are? I know with autoquestioning (a form of hypnosis) you’re questioning your subconcious and you have to pick your words wisely. Could one wrong word screw you up for life? And with any type of hypnosis, is it true that you can get hurt if someone scares you while you’re hypnotised?

Thank you for your help!

You have touched upon several common fears/misconceptions about hypnosis. Let me address each of these separately:

1) Can one wrong word (or a negative suggestion) screw you up for life/cause you harm? — No. Because all hypnosis is self-hypnosis, you cannot be made to do anything you don’t want to. In addition, positive statements have more power than negative ones (this is why years of negative self-talk can be overcome by one or two hypnosis sessions). If your conscious mind says “oops! that last suggestions was a misktake — that’s not what I meant”, that’s more than enough to break the previous “negative” suggestion.

2) If someone scares you while you’re hypnotized, you wake up. Period. If you are in a deep hypnotic trance and you fall asleep — or your hypnotherapist drops dead of a heart attack, heaven forbid! — you wake up.

Hope this answered your questions — if not, feel free to email me!
