Hypnosis is a very natural, pleasant and non-drug induced state that almost anyone can attain, in fact nearly everyone is hypnotized every day. It may be surprising to many to learn that we experience trance states many times in the course of our days and lives. Whenever you “zone out”, daydream, or miss your turn because you were lost in thought – it is a hypnotic state. Even passing into ordinary sleep involves a kind of hypnotic relaxed state.
The experience of hypnosis is neither asleep nor awake and is a little like daydreaming, with a pleasant feeling of deep relaxation underneath it all. It’s being completely relaxed and yet aware of what is going on around you. When using hypnosis, your focus turns inward and you become extremely relaxed -- physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually. You gain access to your subconscious mind, where professionals say 90% of your total mind power resides and positive behavioral changes originate more easily.
