Dehypnosis is going back from the object towards oneself. We have so many ideas and convictions about everything. Dehypnosis takes away all ideas and labels so we can have a clear view and understanding about reality and about ourselves.
Hypnosis means deliberately created sleep. Somebody else, a hypnotist is hypnotizing you. This happens only if the person is willing, is ready to go into the unknown. And it goes as deep as the person is ready to. The hypnotist doesn’t have the power to hypnotize. He has the technique.
Hypnosis is a tremendous source of energy. The ordinary sleep goes deep and it can help the body to rejuvenate but it can’t go that deep enough as hypnosis can.
Meditation is a state of no-mind. Mind is a constant traffic of thoughts, desires, memories, ambitions. It never stops. It functions even when we sleep. It is still in worries and anxieties preparing for the next day. Mind itself can never be peaceful, silent. Silence is possible without mind.
Everything is done by the mind except meditation. Mind cannot penetrate meditation. Where mind ends, meditation begins. Trying to attain a silent mind is an impossible dimension.
Meditation is the awareness that I am not the mind. It means to drop everything which is one’s memory and come to the state where only consciousness remains, where only awareness remains. People who know how to be without the mind, are the only capable of using the mind, otherwise the mind uses them.
How does the process of Dehypnosis work?
The journey towards the self can start only from the mind. So the initial step of meditation is hypnotic. This happens because our energy is in the mind. We live in the mind.
When you move towards the object: thoughts, emotions, anxiety, you are hypnotizing yourself. In this way you are going further away from yourself. Dehypnosis means you are coming back from the object towards yourself.
Hypnosis can be used to break the dreams and the deep-rooted illusions that go on inside you. When you are in hypnosis, with the use of suggestions, you become unconscious and only then you can work upon.
The key to meditation is watching. Meditation techniques are actually hypnosis at its initial phase. But the basic fundamental element that will protect you from being hypnotized, is witnessing. This is the difference between meditation and hypnosis.
Hypnosis is useful in meditation only when you become the observer. You are aware, alert and present during the whole process, knowing what is happening. This is a state of Dehypnosis where suggestions are used to break your unconscious.
note: The texts are written based on Osho’s words on hypnosis, meditation and dehypnosis.
To whom the process of Dehypnosis is happening?
‘The people to whom nothing is happening have a weaker willpower. They are afraid, frightened. They are even afraid that it may happen! How strange man is! They have come to meditate. They have come for meditation to take place, but now they are afraid that it may really happen. And when they see things happening to others they wonder if it is all put on. These are their defense measures.
They say, “We are not so weak as to become affected. These are weak people.” This way they satisfy their egos, not knowing that this process cannot happen to a weak person. They also do not know that this happens only to intelligent people and not to the unintelligent.
An idiot cannot be hypnotized nor can he be taken into meditation. Both are impossible. Similarly, an insane person cannot be worked upon. The more of a genius the person is, the quicker he can be hypnotized. The lesser genius a person is, the longer it will take to hypnotize him.
How can people rationalize the lack of intelligence, will and genius? They will say in their defense, “It seems these people are merely acting. They are weakminded and are influenced from the outside.”
Those who find nothing happening to them will find ways and means of protecting their egos. But there is only a very small distance between the one to whom it happens and the one to whom it does not happen. There is only the lack of a little more resolve. If one gathers courage, makes a strong resolve and drops all inhibitions, the happening will take place.
So our mind creates strange excuses. It says, “This is all a muddle and a mess, and it cannot happen to me. I am not a weak person – I have a powerful mind.” If this were so, if you were a powerful and intelligent person, the happening would have taken place.
The sign of an intelligent person is that he makes no decisions before trying out a thing. He will not even say that what the other is doing is false. He will say, “Who am I to comment on him? To label another as false is not good. Who are you to decide that someone else is wrong? Such wrong decisions have caused a lot of difficulty.
On what authority can we decide what is happening inwardly to another person? This is a symptom of an intelligent person — that he does not express an opinion until he has tried a thing out for himself. If nothing is happening to me, I must find out whether I am carrying out the instructions of the experiment fully. If I am not doing it fully, how will anything happen?
Do the experiment with your total intensity, and do not form any opinions of others. If one goes through the full experiment things will certainly happen. I am talking about very scientific things, not something belonging to religious superstition.
It is a scientific fact that with total effort the result is bound to take place. There is no other way, because God is energy and this energy is impartial. Here, prayers or worship, or the fact of having been born into a high-class family or on the soil of India, will not work. This is purely a scientific matter. If a person goes through this sincerely, even God cannot stop him from succeeding. And even if there is no God it does not matter. See that you are putting your total energy into the meditation experiment. And always make decisions according to your inner experiences, not from the outer appearance of events. Otherwise you will go on the wrong track.

De-hypnosis is the absolute therapy without actually doing anything!
De-hypnosis is a deep self-transformation without even realizing how this is happening.
You just wake up and you start living in a new different way, more relaxed, more healthy, more natural. You find yourself having more clarity, more sensitivity, and much more joy and ecstasy! You suddenly experience a new dimension of life!
And you wonder where did this new way come from, how can I see today what I couldn t yesterday? And yet you know the answer…it is De-hypnosis!!!

Osho Dehypnosis is for me the most powerful meditation technique. Meditation happens without the need to do anything. It is the most fast and easy method with which I experience silence. It brings me to my heart and to whatever is there. With Dehypnosis I feel that my body has no limits nor restrictions and I go deeper. Relaxing more and more every time I practice this technique. I am feeling more, because the energy moves from the thoughts to the heart. I experience calm and peace and that everything is all right as it is.
Dehypnosis with Zoom doesn’t make any difference in the way I experience the energy. It is as if we are all together at the same place. Dehypnosis is the most enjoyable and wonderful meditation method!
Dehypnosis is for me the most powerful meditative process. There is no need to do absolutely anything. I just follow the voice that guides me. It easily and quickly brings me to here and now, with the most relaxed way. I feel that I am part of life and I experience that everything around me is enough as it is and all right. In my everyday life, it gives me relaxation, clarity and a deep trust in life and in whatever comes. In my work, it has given me centering and it has replaced my agony – fear of survival – with creativity and joy.
I can remain with the pain and anxiety that I feel inside, with an unprecedented stoicalness and peace. There is no difference in the process and in the energy between Webinar De-Hypnosis and the one that is done in the place of Osho Experience Greece.
After many years of my way of apprenticeship in Osho and my participation in many meditative and hypnosis groups, I suggest to the old and new companions De-hypnosis which is done at the Osho Experience Greece. It is the most fast and easy process to reach home.
