Can You Be Possessed When Experiencing Hypnosis?

I guess I am always surprised by this question because I understand how the mind/brain works. Traditional superstitions, religious dogma, television shows, movies and stage performances leave the impression that a person is vulnerable to mind control when actively accessing the subconscious mind.

Well let me first say what hypnosis isn’t. It is NOT a creation of the devil. In fact, it is a gift of the spirit.

Hypnosis isn’t mind control nor is it sleep. In hypnosis you are more aware of things going on around you including your feelings and sensations.

Hypnosis is a normal and natural phenomenon that you experience many times a day. I should say many times per hour and the state you are in is called a “trance”. You normally refer to this state as “daydreaming.” It can last a few seconds or several minutes. It is a natural and highly focused state of mind.

Suppose someone asks you a question or you are trying to remember where you placed an item. You begin the process of mentally searching for the answer by going into a short trance, as your subconscious mind searches through that hard drive called your brain, and then hands the answer to your conscious mind. In turn, your conscious mind allows you to open your mouth and give an answer or write it down if required. When in a trance your subconscious mind is in control. Actually, it is always in control.

In your daily life you are being hypnotized regularly without being actively aware it is happening. Movies, commercials, print advertisements, billboards all use hypnotic language to immerse you in the story. You imagine being one of the characters or you become completely enamored with the storyline. With commercials, you are persuaded to purchase a product or merchandise. Yes, you are bombarded every day with hypnotic language that affects the way you think and behave.

In a therapeutic setting, hypnosis is never detrimental because you have agreed to the treatment and the therapist has discussed the conversation to be used to eliminate fears or habits or to create what you want in your life. In this instance, you are using free will and no matter how deep in trance you are, you are in control and you cannot be made to perform anything that is not part of your nature.

Prayer is a form of hypnosis when conducted sincerely. One gentleman called prayer, ritual hypnosis. I have referred to meditative prayer in my books and blog entries. It is concise, direct and deeply spiritual. Again you are in control of what you pray to receive or give.

Many people are afraid of hypnosis because they think they can be unintentionally possessed by an entity while in this state. So the short answer to “Can You Be Possessed When Experiencing Hypnosis” is NO you can not.

In contrast, you may not have realized this, you may have willingly and openly invited an entity to take over your body.

Have you prayed a similar statement as the following?: “I give You my entire self., I invite You into my life, Jesus. I accept you as my Lord and Savior. . . fill me with Your Holy Spirit.” – Joel Olsteen

or

From T. D. Jakes – “We invite you to accept Christ into your life as your personal Lord & Savior.

In both of these cases you have invited the entity called Jesus to attach to you or to come into your body but not to take control.

In fact, no entity can take over your body without your permission. You can only be vulnerable if you send out an invitation to be taken over. Be careful of the words you speak. You do not need to be hypnotized to invite an entity to be part of your life.

Hypnosis is safe and effective to make changes in your life..Examples are to stop smoking, losing weight, allergies, pain management, self-esteem and so on.
