While hypnosis is not a word we hear everyday, it is a word that many people seem to have a preconceived definition for. The most common thought is that hypnosis is an altered state of mind that brings the subject to a trance like state.
The rest of the definition not quite as well known is subject is vulnerable to suggestions in order to change their lives. When combined this is a correct assumption and a rather accurate description.
However, hypnosis is something more than just you have seen on TV, it is a deep and complex relationship carried out between hypnotist and subject that comes with a wanted set of goals to accomplish.
Hypnosis is an altered state of mind. When a subject is under hypnosis they are much more responsive as they experience their inner world the subject's thoughts and ideas become more vivid and actionable through the art of suggestion and language.
The responsiveness in a hypnotic trance is much more sensitive than that of a normal state of being; thoughts and suggestions presented by you, the hypnotist, will become part of your subject's inner world creating a pallet for you to work with and mold into the desired outcome.
As you become an expert hypnotist, you have to always remember that you will always have am impact over your subject. Since, everything that you set aside into your subject'inner mind will effect their outer mind as well because they would put your hypnotic order into action.
Another thing that hypnosis is a very natural way of being, it is not magical or strange, and in fact many people spend a large amount of their days in hypnotic trances, as you learn to entrance people you will start to notice those around you who are experiencing hypnotic trances in everyday life.
An case of a daily experience that can frequently event in a hypnotic trance is driving. A lot of times we start driving and recognize where we started out, and suddenly we are at our destination. We do not remember how we came there or any of the events that occurred on the road, this is a hypnotic trance.
The rhythms we are used to, such as the experience of the car, can loosen up us to the point that our subconscious takes place and does the job while we, let off the word as someone like to call it, 'zone out'. This may seem unusual at the start only once you actually conceive every activities we exercise everyday we have been disciplined completely through out our lives to enter hypnotic trances.
Have you ever saw a film and afterward recognized that the entirely matter in your mind and field of vision was a TV screen, apparently you are able to image the rest of the room, people, cat and dog while concentrating on the screen but the density and capture that is produced makes it seem as if the only thing that exists in the room is that little screen and the action it is creating.
Reading is another example of hypnosis trance. As you go through the story in the book, nothing can distract you out of your story.(if it's you favorite one.) Additionally, while you read, the emotion; fear, sad, happy, laugh, of the characters in the book effect your emotion as well.
There is almost always the effect that the book you are reading will change either your mood, emotion, ideas and ultimately could change how you live your life, such is the objective of a hypnotist.
This emotional response is unconscious, the changing of your emotions, ideas and life, is one of the fundamental and guiding themes when learning hypnosis. You have no choice in your emotions, you do not get to choose how you feel about a thing, it is simply a conscious response by your unconscious mind as a reaction to the suggestions you are presenting to yourself.
Hypnosis can and generally will effect from any repetitive task you enjoy operating in. Runners receive runners high, they modify their mind and experience a trance like state while their body works they feel sound and alive. Getting in this adapted frame of mind is a form of self hypnotherapy which is a very effective place to put yourself, and a powerful thing to be able to achieve for yourself.
