Di satu sisi, riwayat hipnosis sedikit seperti riwayat bernafas. Seperti pernapasan, hipnosis adalah sifat inheren dan universal, dimiliki bersama oleh semua manusia sejak dini waktu. Di sisi lain, hanya dalam beberapa dekade terakhir ini, kita menyadari bahwa Hipnosis itu sendiri tidak berubah selama ribuan tahun, namun pemahaman kita tentang hal itu dan kemampuan kita untuk mengendalikannya telah berubah dengan sangat mendalam. Sejarah hipnosis, sebenarnya adalah sejarah perubahan persepsi ini. Di abad 21, masih ada orang yang melihat hipnosis sebagai beberapa bentuk kekuatan okultisme. Mereka yang percaya bahwa hipnosis dapat digunakan untuk melakukan mukjizat atau mengendalikan pikiran, tentu saja, hanya berbagi pandangan konsensus yang berlaku selama berabad-abad. Sejarah yang tercatat penuh dengan gambaran sekilas tentang ritual dan praktik yang menggoda yang sangat mirip dengan hipnosis dari perspektif modern, dari pembacaan 82271 Veda Hindu sampai teks magis dari Mesir kuno. Praktik ini cenderung untuk tujuan magis atau religius, seperti ramalan atau komunikasi dengan tuhan dan roh. Ini penting untuk diingat, bagaimanapun, bahwa apa yang kita lihat sebagai okultisme adalah pendirian ilmiah pada zamannya, dengan tujuan yang sama persis seperti ilmu pengetahuan modern 8211 yang menyembuhkan penyakit manusia dan meningkatkan pengetahuan. Dari sudut pandang Barat, momen penentu dalam sejarah hipnosis terjadi pada abad ke-18 (bertepatan dengan Pencerahan dan Zaman Nalar). Karya Franz Mesmer. Antara lain, dapat dilihat sebagai perkembangan terakhir dari hipnosis dan reaksi pertama dari sudut pandang 8220scientific8221. Mesmer adalah orang pertama yang mengajukan dasar rasional untuk efek hipnosis. Meskipun sekarang kita tahu bahwa gagasannya tentang magnetisme yang unik8221, yang ditransfer dari penyembuh ke pasien melalui cairan eterik misterius, sama sekali salah, namun berdasarkan gagasan ilmiah saat ini, khususnya teori gravitasi Isaac Newton8217. Mesmer juga orang pertama yang mengembangkan metode yang konsisten untuk hipnosis, yang kemudian diteruskan dan dikembangkan oleh para pengikutnya. Itu masih merupakan praktik yang sangat ritualistik. Mesmer sendiri, misalnya, suka melakukan induksi massa dengan menyuruh pasiennya dihubungkan bersama oleh sebuah tali, yang bisa dilewati oleh magnetnya sendiri. Dia juga suka berdandan dengan jubah dan memainkan musik halus pada harmonika kaca saat ini sedang terjadi. Citra hipnotis yang populer sebagai figur karismatik dan mistik dapat dipastikan sesuai dengan waktu ini. Tak pelak lagi, ornamen ajaib ini menyebabkan kejatuhan Mesmer8217, dan untuk waktu yang lama, hipnotis adalah kepentingan berbahaya bagi siapa saja yang mencari karir arus utama. Namun demikian, fakta keras kepala tetap bahwa hipnosis berhasil, dan abad ke-19 ditandai oleh individu yang ingin memahami dan menerapkan pengaruhnya. Ahli bedah dan dokter seperti John Elliotson dan James Esdaille mempelopori penggunaannya di bidang medis, mempertaruhkan reputasinya untuk melakukannya, sementara para periset seperti James Braid mulai mengelupas lapisan mesmerisme yang mengaburkan, mengungkapkan kebenaran fisik dan biologis di jantung fenomena. Berkat kegigihan dan usaha mereka, pada akhir abad ini hipnosis diterima sebagai teknik klinis yang valid, dipelajari dan diterapkan di universitas dan rumah sakit besar di hari ini. Tren ini berlanjut sampai abad ke-20, meskipun dalam beberapa hal, hipnosis dipenjara oleh penghormatannya sendiri, karena terperosok dalam debat akademis yang tiada henti tentang tahun 8220 atau tahun 19201. Teka-teki ini 8211 apakah hipnosis memiliki dasar fisik yang nyata, atau tidak, pada akhirnya terbukti terlalu steril. Pergeseran penting terjadi di tempat lain. Pertama-tama, pusat gravitasi hipnotis berpindah dari Eropa ke Amerika, di mana semua terobosan paling signifikan pada abad ke-20 terjadi. Kedua, hipnosis menjadi fenomena populer, sesuatu yang semakin tersedia bagi orang awam, di luar laboratorium atau klinik. Pada saat yang sama, gaya hipnosis berubah, dari instruksi langsung yang dikeluarkan oleh seorang tokoh otoriter (warisan para pemikat karismatik) ke induksi trans yang tidak langsung dan permisif, berdasarkan pada pola bahasa yang persuasif. Hal ini terutama disebabkan oleh kerja terapis seperti Milton H. Erickson. Yang lebih penting lagi, mungkin, hipnosis menjadi semakin praktis, dan dianggap sebagai alat yang berguna untuk mengurangi tekanan psikologis dan membawa perubahan besar dalam berbagai situasi. Tema ini terus berlanjut sampai sekarang. Kemajuan dalam ilmu neurologis dan pencitraan otak, bersamaan dengan karya psikolog Inggris Joe Griffin dan Ivan Tyrrell yang menghubungkan hipnosis dengan Rapid Eye Movement (REM), juga telah membantu menyelesaikan perdebatan 8220staton negara bagian8221, membawa hipnosis dan trans hipnosis dengan kuat ke dalam Alam pengalaman sehari-hari. Pada saat bersamaan, sifat kesadaran 8220ordinary8221 lebih dipahami sebagai rangkaian keadaan trans yang selalu kita lalui. Sejarah hipnosis, kemudian, seperti mencari sesuatu yang terlihat jelas selama ini, dan sekarang kita dapat melihatnya untuk apa itu fenomena universal yang merupakan bagian yang tak terpisahkan dari menjadi manusia. Masa depan hipnosis akan sepenuhnya menyadari potensi luar biasa kemampuan hipnosis alami kita.
