Is hypnosis real or fake? If it is real, how is it possible for people to fall in to this spell to become and do things they normally do not do?

It can be very real: People can fake things, but - especially licensed therapeutic hypnosis - is very real and often effective. Things not normally done are not = to things morally offensive. Types of resistance are lower, but not moral/ethical discrimination. The process happens to some degree every day. Being very absorbed in reading, music, fantasy, etc. Is similar. Only the 'guide' of the suggestions is different. ...Read more

Is it possible to forget someone through hypnosis? If so what are the pros and cons?

Yes and no: In my experience it's easier to reduce/eliminate/"forget" the effect a person has on you rather than eliminate the person from your memory.

What to do if i faked my hypnosis session yesterday?

You can expect : no improvement. Faking or lying to your therapist/hypnotist only misled you. They need honest feedback in order to best help you. If you weren't relaxed enough, ask for more suggestion and time to relax before they implant suggestions. This process requires trust and honesty on both parties to work. Try again tell them what happened. They will understand and be glad you told the truth hopefully! ...Read more
