What is Hypnosis?A Simple Answer is: Mediation with a Goal Hypnosis is a very powerful and beneficial therapeutic tool, hypnosis is different for all of us and we all experience it in different ways. While in Hypnosis, our bodies become relaxed, as in meditation, and to an observer, they will perceive the person to be asleep or in a world of there own. But appearances can be deceiving, however, in this altered state of awareness, all outside distractions are eliminated and your attention is heightened and focused on the present at a subconscious level. And with your conscious mind relaxed, your subconscious becomes accessible, giving you limitless possibilities for change. Since it is a natural state we enter, we have full control over it, entering and leaving whenever we choose, unlike what Hollywood would have us believe
HYPNOSIS IS A NATURAL STATE WE GO INTO EVERY DAY
HYPNOSIS THAT YOU EXPERIENCE IN EVERYDAY LIFE
Hypnosis is a natural, familiar state. We all move in and out of the hypnotic state all day long. For instance, sometimes we go into this state when we’re driving, watching TV, listening to music, or working on a project that we’re passionate about.
Hypnosis is the state from which you can make extremely powerful changes in your life because it is the state in which you are the most receptive, creative, and intuitive.
Some people can enter into hypnosis more quickly than others, and everyone can improve his or her ability to reach the hypnotic state through practice. A lot of people think they can’t be hypnotised, but they can. Everyone can be hypnotised. Hypnosis is more similar to daydreaming than it is to sleep. Although, if you do fall asleep during hypnosis, the suggestions are still absorbed.

BUT WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. All of the transformation you experience as a result of a session is because of what you have done. The power always lies within you.
