Hypnosis is a natural phenomenon of the mind and body connection. Therefore hypnosis requires the active participation of both conscious and unconscious processes. The hypnotic state, also called trance, is a state similar to that experienced just before going to sleep at night, or just before awakening in the morning. When using hypnosis, you must remain awake. You can fall asleep, but then we no longer call it hypnosis, but sleeping.
What makes hypnosis different from the normal awake state? In the hypnotic state, or trance state, the critical faculty is switched off, this means that you cannot distinguish the difference between reality and fantasy. During this time a person is highly suggestible. This is the time when positive suggestions will be accepted uncritically.
So hypnosis is a natural state of relaxation of the mind and body. Hypnosis requires rapport, trust and following positive suggestions, to create the results you want.
It would be a mistake for everyone to expect tingling in the body, a floating feeling or a sinking into a deep hypnotic trance. Each individual's experience is unique. A person can respond fully to hypnotic and post-hypnotic suggestions without experiencing any of these sensations.
