Hypnosis is a natural state of mind experienced as trance. Hypnosis can be induced through the interaction of one individual speaking to another (hypnotist to client), or to an entire group as (group hypnosis); we can also learn to self-induce trance as in self-hypnosis.
Hypnosis can bring about major change in motivation, self-confidence, relaxation, physical discomfort, creativity, habit control, and many other problems or difficulty in achieving goals. Yet few procedures are less understood, or more plagued by misunderstandings.
Long associated with the strange and mysterious, hypnosis is neither. The truth is, you drift in and out of the hypnotic or trance state, on a daily basis. It goes unnoticed because it seems so natural and normal. And that, is exactly what hypnosis is, one of the natural states of mind that all human beings experience.
What is a Trance?
A trance is a natural state occurring whenever your attention is narrowly focused and relatively free of distractions. Your attention may be focused either internally (on self-talk, daydreaming, meditation, etc.) or externally (on a task, reading, a movie, engaged in an art form, intently listening to a speaker, etc.). Attention is narrowly focused so that other environmental stimuli are ignored for a period of time.
How Does Hypnosis Work?
Hypnosis works by updating the subconscious mind with new and more helpful information, like reprogramming a computer. It can be used to change associations, so that cigarettes, for instance, are no longer seen as “friends”, and are more realistically regarded as a “toxic habit”. It can also be used to mentally rehearse better ways of going about things, such as being able to deal with stressful situations without having to light up.
