What is Hypnosis?

What is Hypnosis?


All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. What I mean by that is what a hynotherapist or hypnotist does is give people instructions to think about things and imagine things in a particular way. If you follow those instructions you will go into what's termed a hynotic trance state. If you don't follow the instructions then nothing happens. It's an altered state of consciousness from the point of view that its different from the everyday state of mind, yet it's something that most of us experience regularly on a daily basis. For example, if you have ever read a book, watched a film or seen a play and been so carried away with it, it's almost like you're there, you're a part of it, that's a hynotic state. If you've ever been so absorbed in a task at work of some kind that you become oblivious to everything around you because you're so focused on that one thing, that again is a hypnotic state. If you've ever driven or walked somewhere and when you get to your destination you said 'How did I get here?', you've forgotten the journey because you've been off in a daydream, highway hypnosis is quite a common experience. So the point I'm trying to make is that the hypnotic state is a natural state of mind. It's something which we all experience pretty much on a daily basis. What's different here is that this natural ability is harnessed and focused to help people to acheive their goals, whatever they may be.
