Most hypnotists will tell you “You can’t be made to do something in hypnosis that is against your Will.” Most of them actually believe it. But a few of the most experienced hypnotists simply say it to put people at ease. They know that, in the right hands, very few people can resist a skilled hypnotist. Skilled hypnotists know what it takes to resist suggestions and it’s not what most people would think.
Reason #1 – Because they don’t want others to have the power they have. In spite of what they may want you to believe hypnotists are human beings. They have egos and ambitions just like everyone else. A lot of hypnotists discover something that works really well and they’ll want to keep it to themselves.
Reason #2 – Because it frightens away clients who believe they have some sort of Will Power. For most people real Will Power is a myth, a story, even a fantasy. Facing this truth, for most people, is a humbling experience.
