Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness in which it is possible to communicate with the subconscious mind. You may be surprised to know that it is a very common state which everybody automatically drifts in and out of from time to time.
You know how it is when you get thoroughly lost in a film, or a good book, or a daydream. Your attention is completely captured and everyday reality fades into the background as your mind carries you away to a different world of the imagination. You are still conscious, but your consciousness is temporarily altered. Well, believe it or not, that is a form of hypnosis, In fact, we all go through a similar phase just before we go to sleep.
When you are being hypnotised, you are guided by this CD into this same kind of trance state somewhere between being asleep and being awake, And this is called a hypnotic trance. It is a very pleasant feeling of calmness and deep relaxation.
Contrary to popular belief, when you are hypnotised you are not asleep or unconscious. You will normally have your eyes closed, but you can still hear and feel and even speak. Indeed, your concentration and awareness actually become heightened.
Different people can experience hypnosis in slightly different ways. Some people may notice that they feel rather heavy, whilst others may feel light and ‘floaty.’ Often the closed eyelids can flutter a little here and there, or there may be a slight tingling sensation in various parts of the body. However, some people experience nothing at all, other than a feeling of deep relaxation. The experience of hypnosis is a very personal thing, but basically, it is just a very calm and pleasant feeling – rather like being in a daydream.
Most people can be hypnotised. The exceptions are those who are mentally subnormal, young children, or those who are ‘high’ on drugs or alcohol. Everybody else (who properly co-operates with the process) can be hypnotised. Obviously, if somebody cannot understand what is required of them, or if they are resisting for some reason, they will have difficulty entering into hypnosis.
