Lets look at a few “Definitions” of Hypnosis.
Hypnosis is a state of human consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced capacity for response to suggestion.
A state which resembles sleep but is produced by a person who can then make suggestions to which the person in this state can respond.”
Think about hypnosis as simply a deeply-focused meditation where good things can and will take place. Look in the Bible, it is filled with injunctions for Christians to meditate upon the word of God. So what does injunction mean? Injunction the failure to perform such acts, would cause one of the parties irreparable harm. Meditate on the word of God and watch your life change in miraculous ways.
In the bible Peter entered into meditative states twice recorded and the Bible approved his “trances” both times. Isaiah, Daniel, Paul and Jeremiah all experienced times of hypnotic trance and heightened awareness inspired by God to give them deep insights into their person and character. The person God created them to be.
So if you are a Christian and believe that hypnosis is evil and not biblical please do your research.
Roman’s 12:2 Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.(NLT)
So here is the question I get asked, “Can hypnosis open my mind in any way that might allow Satan to get control of my thinking?”
The truth is that during hypnosis, you often have more control over your mind than ever before. Just because you may be more susceptible to suggestions in no way means that you will lose control of your mind and do things that you never intended to do. You only accept the suggestions that are right for you. You are in control. The hypnotherapist is just the guide helping you navigate your sub-conscous mind.
My prayers is this helped answer some of your question about is Hypnosis and Christianity.
Just to let you know the Roman Catholic , Anglican, and Lutheran church all actively support and utilize hypnosis in helping people.
