TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Hypnosis is a phenomenon often displayed in theaters and on television as a method to get people to do what they don't want to do.

However, clinical hypnotist Colin Christopher says that it's a way to get people to do the very opposite -- things they want to do to accomplish their goals.

Christopher has written a book entitled Success Through Manipulation: Subconscious Reactions That Will Make or Break You. He says that by controlling your subconscious urges, hypnosis can help you perform tasks like losing weight or quitting smoking.
