    << Deuteronomy 18:10-11 >>

    10Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter ina the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord, and because of these detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. 13You must be blameless before the Lord your God.

    As far as I know, hypnosis is not specifically mentioned in the Bible. It is the use of ones own mind to help ones self I assume that you go ahead.

    The bible doesn't say anything specifically about hypnosis but it does say

    to not be conformed to the things of this world but to be transformed by the

    renewing of your mind. (Rom 12:2)

    Giving up control of ones mind, even temporarily, is always a danger. Satan

    works through the mind and when a person is not in control of their mind, it

    could open the door to unwanted results.

    Prayer never did a dam*** thing to help me quit smoking and hypnosis did. Yes, it's allowed.

    Wherefore, by the ministering of angels, and by every word which proceeded forth out of the mouth of God, men began to exercise faith in Christ; and thus by faith, they did lay hold upon every good thing; and thus it was until the coming of Christ.
