What Is Hypnosis?
Everyone experiences a state of hypnosis throughout the day. Everyone enters the hypnotic state just before sleep at night, when we first wake up in the morning. It’s the state between fully awake and not quite asleep. The brainwaves at this time are just like the brainwaves when you are relaxing in a state of hypnosis.
Other examples of hypnotic state experience regularly can be:
Reading a book
Playing a sport
Hypnosis is as a state of intensely focused attention. Generally in all of the above examples your attention is deeply focused on a singular activity.
Such as daydreaming, when your attention is focused on your imagination. Or perhaps memories from the past. In each case reality eases out of your consciousness, and your attention is inwardly focused.
When driving, when we arrive at our destination and vaguely remember the drive there, it’s because our subconscious was driving. As we drive our consciousness is diverted, and our subconscious mind is working to drive and protecting you. Subconsciously you are paying attention to the oncoming traffic, keeping your vehicle within the lines and handling stop lights. But your conscious mind is focused on the daydream.
When reading a great book, watching a great movie or TV show, gaming, or playing a sport you can become so absorbed that nothing around you seems to exist anymore.
It’s all the same situation as being under hypnosis; your conscious attention is so absorbed by something else that the subconscious is available for suggestion. Your conscious and subconscious minds work together to keep you protected and safe at all times.
Your subconscious mind will also protect you when you are in hypnosis for you will not do anything that is against your personal or moral beliefs.
If anything is suggested during hypnosis that is against your personal or moral convictions, your subconscious mind will either ignore the suggestion or bring you immediately out of hypnosis. Because you are in control.

What effects does Hypnosis have?
The experience of hypnosis can vary dramatically from one person to another. Some hypnotized individuals report feeling a sense of detachment or extreme relaxation during the hypnotic state, while others even feel that their actions seem to occur outside of their conscious volition. Other individuals may remain fully aware and able to carry out conversations while under hypnosis.
