Hypnosis is a changed state of awareness and increased mental relaxation that allows for improved focus and concentration. It also is called “hypnotherapy.” Hypnosis usually is done with the guidance of a health care provider using verbal repetition and mental images. During hypnosis, most people feel calm and relaxed. Hypnosis typically makes individuals open to suggestions concerning their behavior.
There has been a constant debate in mental health arenas concerning the validity and usefulness of hypnotism. Claims have been made that hypnosis may be helpful for pain control, hot flashes, addictions by behavioral changes, cancer treatment side effects and mental health conditions. Some of the side effects that have been reactions to hypnosis are dizziness, headache, drowsiness, anxiety and sleeping disorders. Some see hypnotism as being not good or bad, while others argue that hypnotism can be beneficial for therapy and diagnosing the root of a particular issue.
Christians must understand the fact that hypnosis, no matter the intentions of the therapist, is an assault on the human mind, an attack on the soul.
The human mind should not be a place where someone should let another person have control of it. The body, including the mind, is part of what we sacrifice unto the LORD, meaning that HE is the owner of it when we become HIS disciple. Paul the Apostle understood this clearly as he communicated this in Romans 12:1-2, where it says:
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. 2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.”
The transformation of the mind is the function of the HOLY SPIRIT. The art or act of suggestion to externally control the mind is a function of unlawful soul realm manipulation, where we often define this as one of the very weapons of witchcraft. As believers, we must engage in wars in various theatres simultaneously through the instruction of the SPIRIT of GOD. This is very clear in 2 Corinthians 10:4-5.
“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, 5 casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:4-5
This Scripture features items that identify the theatres of war in the mind: arguments concerning the superiority of GOD; the very knowledge of Who GOD is; and the need for all things, especially the process of our mind called “thought,” to be under the subjugation of obedience to CHRIST.
Allowing a hypnotist to subjugate your mind to his suggestion and cognition is allowing your mind to come under the obedience of something or someone else other than CHRIST and HIS supernatural power. Again, the Apostle understood that GOD intends to be glorified through us in both Body and Spirit.
“Everything is permissible for me, but not all things are beneficial. Everything is permissible for me, but I will not be enslaved by anything and brought under its power, allowing it to control me.” 1 Corinthians 6:12 (AMP)
