Can hypnosis or a pill erase bad memories?

I have some very bad memories that do nothing but hurt me. It would benefit me to forget them, can hypnosis or any drug help me forget/erase them?


  1. Counselors help you deal with bad memories. They can teach you techniques to cope with the memories when they are difficult. The memories will fade with time.

  2. Going to a proffessional hypnotherapist will not make you forget the bad memories; it can however help you cope and move on. If they are really that damaging of memories then you could at least try it out. I would recomment also seeing a therapist along with the hypnotherapist though. I really hope this helped.

  3. although in deep trance somnambulism it is possible that a amnesia barrier can be created, I do not recommend it.
    learn to cope with it. get counseling or whatever. I just don’t think it’s a good idea to erase someone’s memory.

  4. Hypnosis is VERY powerful took for helping subdue or possibly erase bad memories. I’ve used it for anxiety and so much other great things.
    Below is all you need to know about hypnosis,nlp and brainwave entrainment.
    Perhaps some of you may have heard of the term Neuro Linguistic Programming, perhaps not. I have been using techniques in NLP now for well over 5 years.Overall I would say the quality of my life has increased a million times over by this amazing healing technology.
    I have become a better student at my studies,able to increasing my learing ability and focus. I retain information more easily also and my procrastination has been greatly helped by NLP.I will be covering in future articles the wonderful world of NLP and how it can help you to achieve success in your everyday life for anything you could possibly think of! Happiness,success,ending procrastination,better study habits,eliminating stress,ending anxiety-It can all be attained with NLP.
    A few products that have helped me achieve great success is the Mind Enhancement Series and the Brain Training Series, by Infinite Mindz.
    So here’s some more info on what Neuro Linguistic Programming(NLP) actually is.
    You could think of Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) as an owner’s manual for the human brain. It’s the study of how we think, feel and act, marked by an intense curiosity about how (rather than why) human beings get the results they do.
    NLP is a fairly recent development, originating at the University of Santa Cruz in the mid-seventies when a group of talented people led by Richard Bandler and John Grinder came together to share information and insights across disciplinary boundaries. It incorporates insights from behavioural and Gestalt psychology, family therapy, hypnotherapy, linguistics, information theory and anthropology, among many other disciplines.
    Modelling Excellence
    Unlike some other schools of psychotherapeutic thought, which concentrate on how problems arise, NLP started from studying people who are exceptionally good at what they do, and finding out how they do it so that anyone can get similar results by doing the same things. It aims to move beyond remedial change (fixing specific problems) to ‘generative’ change, which empowers you to achieve more in every area of your life. Often people find that when they learn a new skill or make a breakthrough in one area of their life, problems in other areas seem to disappear or seem less important.
    By studying how ’star performers’ in every field achieve their results, the developers of NLP have built up a vast reservoir of knowledge about what works in every field of human endeavour. You can apply the knowledge resulting from this curiosity to help others, to become more successful in your work, or even to tap into your own hidden resources.
    NLP is “Content Free”
    Another difference between NLP and other schools of psychotherapy is that NLP concentrates on the structure of experience, rather than the content. How you think about something is at least as important as what you are thinking about. So, for example, if you remember a pleasant experience as a big, bright, moving picture, it will probably give you a much more powerful pleasant feeling than the same experience viewed as a small, dark, monochrome snapshot.
    One of the things that often surprises people about NLP is the speed with which many problems can be resolved. Solving one’s problems is all about learning – at the unconscious level, which is where it counts – and learning can happen very quickly.
    Some principles of NLP:
    People have their own model of the world, and what they do makes sense within that model
    Mind and body are one system
    People have all the inner resources they need to succeed
    (there are no unresourceful people, only unresourceful states)
    There is no failure, only results
    I am in charge of my mind, and therefore my results
    Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, is an altered state of consciousness. This state of consciousness is usually achieved with the help of a hypnotherapist OR in today’s 21st century, by cd’s or high quality digital downloads and is different from your everyday awareness.
    Under hypnosis the following conditions are observed:
    Your subconscious mind is more open and free to assess your life
    Your attention is more focused
    You’re more responsive to suggestions
    You’re more open and less critical or disbelieving
    The purpose of hypnosis as a therapeutic technique is to help you gain more control over your behavior, emotions or physical well-being.
    It’s not clear how hypnosis works. However, it appears to affect how your brain communicates with your body through nerve impulses, hormones and body chemicals, such as neuropeptides. Hypnotherapists say that hypnosis creates a state of deep relaxation and quiets the mind. When you’re hypnotized, you can concentrate intensely on a specific thought, memory, feeling or sensation while blocking out distractions. You’re more open than usual to suggestions, and this can be used to change your behavior and thereby improve your health and well-being.
    -Hypnosis can help you to quite smoking
    -Hypnosis can help you lose weight
    -Hypnosis can help reduce depression,anxiety,fear and stress
    -Lowering blood pressure
    -Eliminate or decrease the intensity of phobias
    -Hypnosis can help reduce the frequency and intensity of headaches and migraines.
    -Hypnosis can help you end procrastination and lead the life you truly want to lead.
    With all these amazing benefits ,it’s fitting to see why hypnosis can help you become the ultimate achiever you always dreamed of being.
    What are Binaural Beats? Binaural beats were discovered in 1839 by a German experimenter, H. W. Dove. The human ability to hear binaural beats appears to be evolutionary adaptation. Humans possess the ability to detect the subtle phase shift of sounds arriving at one ear slightly before arriving at the other ear. This phase difference normally provides directional information and is what enables us to determine the physical location of a sound. The difference in phase relationship can be detected when sound frequencies are below approximately 1000 Hz.
    It is more difficult for us to determine the physical location of a high pitched sound. The sensation of binaural beats occurs when two coherent sounds of nearly similar frequencies or phase relationships are presented, one to each ear and the brain detects phase or frequency differences between the sounds. When presented with stereo headphones over a period of time, the brain integrates the two signals producing a sensation of a third sound called the binaural beat. The binaural beat resulting in the brain is the phase or frequency difference between the two sounds. Because the binaural beat is the result of the phase or frequency relationship of the two sounds, the binaural effect is produced regardless of the relative amplitudes of the tones. A slight hearing loss in one ear does not reduce the effectiveness of binaural beats.
    The brain produces electrical patterns known as brainwaves. These patterns can be detected using sophisticated electronic equipment known as EEG devices. Different brainwave patterns are produced during different mental activities. Beta is associated with normal, waking consciousness while our attention is directed towards our external environment. They are also present during stress and anxiety. Beta waves oscillate between approximately 14 and 30 Hz (cycles per second).
    Alpha occurs when we are relaxed and not thinking about anything in particular. Alpha waves are also associated with a calm and focused mental state and meditation. Alpha waves oscillate between 8 and 14 Hz .
    Theta is a state of deep relaxation and is often associated with bursts of creative insight, sleep learning and vivid mental imagery. It is also found in more advanced meditators. Theta waves oscillate between 4 and 8 Hz.
    Delta is the slowest of brainwave activity and is found during deep, dreamless sleep and sometimes in very experienced meditators. Delta brainwave activity has also been recorded in states of transpersonal awareness such as open visions. They oscillate between .5 and 4 Hz. The brainwave states are an indication of the most dominant patterns during any given mental activity. The brain is a dynamic, living organ. During all these ‘states’, other frequencies are still present. Although there is a dominant frequency, there is no single frequency that our brain is operating on.
    Frequency Following Response If external stimulus is applied to the brain, it is possible to entrain the dominant brain frequency from one stage to another. If an individual in the beta stage is presented with a stimulus of 10Hz for some time, the brain frequency is likely to change towards the applied stimulus. The effect will be relaxing to the individual. This phenomenon is also called frequency following response (FFR).
    When a brainwave pattern is practiced over a period of time, the brain actually learns the state and it becomes easier to produce the desired brainwave state at will. The frequency following response is evident without conscious effort. However, active participation is necessary in order to learn the desired state. Passively listening to binaural beats does not produce the learning response. A willingness to focus the attention, while remaining relaxed and alert is a primary factor in how effective the binaural beat stimulus is for learning a specific brainwave state. Using binaural technology to assist in meditation requires focus and attention.
