postheadericon Are Meditation And Hypnosis The Same?

While meditation and hypnosis do share similarities they are not the same thing. Both meditation and hypnosis share many of the same techniques such as visualization and focusing awareness on a single point in the initial stages. It’s in the next stage that they tend to split apart.

In most cases people who use hypnosis do so with a very specific goal in mind whether it’s to lose weight, quit smoking, increase confidence, etc. Meditation is different in this regard as the aim is typically to relax and achieve a heightened sense of awareness.

With meditation and hypnosis it’s not a case of using one or another. Under the right guidance both are skills that can be used to greatly improve your life. Neither is “better” or “safer” than the other so don’t be afraid to experiment with either.
