What is hypnosis after all?
Hypnosis is a technique that bypasses the critical factor of the mind in order to establish a focus and sustain attention with the intent of achieving a detached mental state. That state is characterized by a deep somatic and noetic relaxation, whereas:
* our consciousness is enlarged, broadened and able to perceive other dimensions of reality.
* A deeper communication with the subconscious mind and its endless resources is facilitated.
* powerful, beneficial changes in behavior can be achieved through suggestions, in case they do not clash with our ethical code.
* Most of the time we perceive reality and retain control.
Usually, a process is triggered by the hypnotist, in order to locate the source of our problems. According to the encyclopedia Brittanica: “Hypnosis is the term applied to a unique, complex form of unusual but normal behavior which can be induced in all normal persons under suitable conditions and also in many persons suffering from various types of abnormality. It is primarily a special psychological state with certain physiological attributes, resembling sleep only superficially and marked by a functioning of the individual at a level of awareness other than the ordinary conscious state”…
