Here is an official definition: Hypnosis is the induction of a state of consciousness in which a person loses the power of voluntary action and is especially aware of suggestion or direction.
To go into a little more detail you could say that hypnosis is often over exaggerated. We use the term “hypnosis” to describe a trance like state.
However, in point of fact we all go in and out of mild “trances” or hypnosis type states every day; such as in those moments when our minds wander and we daydream, even when we just shut the world out and deeply focus on a book we are studying.
These trance like states, and they are all organic and natural. All hypnosis does is put you into one of these mild “trance” states purposefully , and over time the hypnotist plants simple, beneficial messages into your subconscious mind.
Although you might not remember everything which is said to you once you enter a trance you are not actually asleep, hypnosis is a wakeful state in which you are both deeply calm yet have a heightened level of suggestibility as well as a concentrated awareness.
Due to this heightened mind-set you can use hypnosis to rewire your self beliefs and patterns of thinking.
To sum up very briefly it is often said that hypnosis gains access the unconscious mind to get rid of the negative beliefs which hinder personal growth.
What can be done?
Hypnosis has a good reputation for treating phobic disorders and fears, or at least this is how it started out. It then started to be used with great success for weight loss and giving up smoking.
Hypnosis is now used for the elimination of almost any bad belief, it is used to help a wide range of health problems, and is massively effective for bettering self beliefs such as self esteem and confidence.
