Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness. Not asleep, but rather a heightened state of awareness, more focused and yet profoundly relaxed. We go into self hypnosis through out our day.
For example, have you ever found your mind wandering while driving? Perhaps you even missed your turn. You knew, of course, that you were driving, but your mind was busy fantasizing or creating ingenious ideas. You were in an "alpha" state of consciousness. Our conscious mind is alert in the full "beta" consciousness state. However, when we relax, and allow our conscious mind to take a back seat, (as when we daydream, fantasize, or meditate), we naturally flow into an "alpha" state where we become a hundred times more alert and focused than we were in "beta". This state is where we learn the best and receive terrific inspiration. It will feel very much like you are imagining...and yet when we imagine, in truth, we are receiving inspired information.
We can even relax deeper, going naturally into a "theta" state. This altered state feels deeply relaxing, and as if time stood still. The focus and concentration is amazing. You have experienced this everytime you woke up from a dream and wanted to be the director of the dream in order to finish it your way.
This is why almost anyone can be hypnotized, because we are in and out of hypnosis everyday. The more intelligent you are, the easier it is to flow into hypnosis. This is because of your ability to focus and concentrate. Again, you are NOT ASLEEP, or in a coma like statewhile in hypnosis. You are very much aware of your surroundings, feelings, thoughts, etc. Your conscious mind will watch how your subconscious mind gives you resources to change behaviors. Trance gives us the ability to move quickly from the rigid analytical mind, to the imaginative and creative one that provides us answers we seek.
Absolutely. It is a natural part of our daily occurrence.
No. Your full cooperation is needed in order to become hypnotized.
Absolutely not. Again, you are very much aware of your surroundings and will know everything that is happening. No one can force you to do anything against your will. You choose to either take the suggestion in or not.
No. Hypnosis is not a truth serum. You choose what you want to reveal.
No. Many enjoy the relaxed feeling so much that they are reluctant to return to their normal state of awareness. However, everyone does return as soon as they are ready. If you were determined to stay in the hypnotic state, you would drift off into natural sleep, and awaken shortly after feeling relaxed and refreshed, as if you took a nice nap.
