Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness in which it is possible to communicate with the subconscious mind. It is a very common state which everybody automatically drifts in an out of from time to time. Through this process a person’s attention is completely captured and as the surrounding reality fades into the background, the person’s mind carries him away to a different world of the imagination.
When a person is being hypnotised, he/she is guided by the hypnotist/ therapist into a trance state somewhere between being asleep and being awake and this is called a hypnotic trance. It is a very pleasant feeling of calmness and deep relaxation. When the body and the conscious mind have been sufficiently relaxed, the normal barriers to the subconscious part of the mind also become relaxed, and the subconscious becomes receptive to positive suggestion. Suggestions that can help you get rid of negative habits.
