Hypnosis is a natural state where the mind is at its heightened state of suggestibility and enhancing our ability to focus. We all have experienced this state in one form or another in our daily life as we were driving down the freeway deep in our thoughts and miss our exit, or reading a book in a busy coffee shop being so intrigued by the story that we tune out any other activity or conversations. We also enter the same hypnotic state while we are at the movies or watching TV at home and before we know it hours have passed by.
While you are in the state of hypnosis, your subconscious mind becomes very receptive to suggestions and what others say to you. This is why we learn and accept information more effectively while we are in this state.
