You may have noticed that the Hypnosis Training Academy is packed with hypnosis resources.
But all of this content has one thing in common when it was mindfully created: to guide, teach and nurture you through your hypnosis training journey and pursuit of mastery.
After all, as Pablo Picasso famously said:
The meaning of life is to find your gift. The purpose of life is to give it away. tweet
While Pablo might have coined this quote first, it really is the reason why this blog even exists.
But we admit, with so much content to sink your teeth into, it can be a little daunting knowing where to start.
Which is why we thought it would be a nifty idea to compile a list of our “greatest hypnosis hits” so to speak – minus any one hit wonders, that is.
The articles listed below have been our most popular among our readers in their quest to be a powerful force for good in the world using the power of hypnosis.
To help you navigate through this list, we’ve broken the posts up into 4 categories: ethical conversational hypnosis, hypnotherapy, self-hypnosis and general hypnosis.
So let’s get cracking.

When used ethically, it’s a highly effective way of bypassing the critical factor so you can get down to what you do best: being a force for good through the power of hypnosis.
And following on from ethical Hypnotic Mind Reading, another way to improve your observation skills is to look out for unconscious body language signs during a conversation. These signals give you clues as to what a subject is thinking and how they’re feeling, meaning you can then adjust your hypnosis game accordingly (aka the techniques you want to use so positive change work can take place).
