What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of mind where the conscious mind becomes less critical,
allowing the subconscious mind to readily accept positive suggestions.
While in hypnosis a person’s level of awareness as well as their senses are
heightened. They experience a focusing of the mind which enables them to create
and accept change.
Every person experiences the hypnotic state several times a day. For example
right before falling asleep at night, it is the drowsy feeling when the mind is
still aware, right be fore you drop off to sleep. Children are in hypnosis
while they are mesmerized in front of a television, reading a book or even
playing a video game. Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state.
