101 Things I Wish I'd Known When I Started Using Hypnosis

For the past thirty years Dabney Ewin has been teaching medical hypnosis at Tulane University. In all that time, he has dealt with hundreds of patients and has taught hundreds of students, and the one thing that stands out during this illustrious career is that he has never stopped learning something new. This wonderful little book is a testament to all the ideas that Dr. Ewin wished he had known about when he first started practicing hypnosis. The words and phrases presented here are designed to give any beginning or experienced student a foundation about the working of hypnosis – the foundation of knowledge Dr. Ewin built up in his more than thirty years of practice. Dr. Ewin "believes his patients can get well, because they do." With his words, images and suggestions, noted throughout this little book of wisdom, he understands that the mind can change the way the brain functions and conversely, he also knows the brain can change the way the mind functions. In hypnosis, he makes this healing resonance between mind and body happen again and again. Simply put, his patients become whole again.

"A wise little book by the sparkling brilliance of Dabney Ewin, M.D., is a guilty pleasure that belongs on the bookshelf of all beginners in therapeutic hypnosis." Ernest Rossi, PhD

"This book is a triumph and I wholeheartedly recommend it to you." David Slater

Here’s an example of what’s inside ...

8. Bother

People are afraid of pain, but they don’t mind a little discomfort as long as it doesn’t cause pain.

When I’m going to draw blood, as a waking suggestion I say "You may feel a little pressure, but it won’t bother you." This is a negative suggestion (Thing 21), so of course it does bother them a little, but at least it didn’t hurt. They’ve been instructed to interpret what they feel as pressure, and that doesn’t bother them very much. 101 things I wish I’d known when I started using hypnosis

3. Stop (not quit)

Quitters are losers.

In our society, to quit school is a disaster, to quit a job causes wonder if you were about to be fired and to quit a marriage is a failure of commitment and sad for the kids. Quit has negative emotional content built into the word. When the whistle blows at 5 o’clock, we stop work, but don’t quit. It’s emotionally much easier to stop a bad habit than to quit it.
