Can you hypnotize me to XYZ?

Hypnosis isn’t magic. Just as it isn’t magic to have someone show you how to throw a perfect free-throw, it isn’t magic to be hypnotized to change your life for the better. When you reach your point of readiness for change, you decide what programs you want to change in your internal computer (the subconscious mind) and use hypnosis to do the re-programming.
