Hypnosis and Meditation:
What Do They Have In Common?

Mindfulness and Hypnosis:
The Power of Suggestion to Transform Experience

By Michael Yapko, PhD / Copyright 2011, W.W. Norton - Book review

            In Mindfulness and Hypnosis, psychologist and hypnotherapy expert, Michael Yapko, explores the similarities between mindfulness meditation and hypnosis, arriving at the conclusion that both transform experience through the power of suggestion.  Neuroscience has shown that both hypnosis and meditation bring about similar neurological changes. Behavioral research shows that both calm anxiety, reduce pain, facilitate healing, and support adaptive behavior.

            The suggestions in mindfulness meditation are about awareness and nonjudgmental acceptance.  The suggestions in hypnosis are about specific behavioral/emotional outcomes achieved by accessing one's inner resources.

Hypnosis is a way to accessThe untapped power of the mind ... 

David Barlow of the Boston Center for Anxiety and Related Disorders claimed in a Newsweek article ( Feb. 24, 2003 ) that it is actually possible to talk with the amygdala, a key component of the brain that deals with emotions like fear. Since this idea was consistent with the basic tenets of hypnosis, it intrigued me.

"Hypnosis is a way to access the untapped power of the mind and alter brain functions. In this state of intense relaxation and concentration, the mind is able to focus on positive suggestions which can be carried out at a future time. These subliminal messages are surprisingly powerful."

"The mind is like an onion. The outer layer, or conscious mind, deals with intelligence, reality, and logic. The inner mind is concerned with emotion, imagination, and memory, as well as the autonomic nervous system which automatically controls our internal organs (i.e., how we breathe, send oxygen to our blood cells, or walk without using the conscious mind.) The internal mind is on autopilot, reacting to the dictates of the pleasure principle. It seeks pleasure and avoids pain"
(Warren, 2003, pp. 175-6).
