How does hypnosis work and what are the benefits?
Human being can generally be in one of three states of mind: awake, asleep, and hypnotic state. The first two are self-explanatory, the third state is a state that you pass through when you fall asleep or wake up. However, you also experience it spontaneously during the day, when you let your mind wonder or day-dream and your consciousness loses its controlling grip. When the hypnotic state happens, you’re not fully conscious or fully unconscious, but somewhere in between. You’re not completely gone like when you’re a sleep, but you’re only present in a being. Hypnotic state is similar to a meditative state but much less conscious. It is very pleasant and 15 min of relaxation in this state feels like hours of ordinary sleep. Most importantly, at this state you can work effectively with long-term memory and access all the automatic triggered behaviors that you want to change. As people are much more receptive and open to new ideas at the hypnotic state, it makes it easier to accept changes that we want in life.
