What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis refers to a state or condition in which the subject becomes highly responsive to suggestions. The hypnotized individual seems to follow instructions in an uncritical, automatic fashion and attends closely
only to those aspects of the environment made relevant by the hypnotist.
If the client is profoundly responsive, he or she hears, sees, feels, smells, and tastes the suggestions given, even though these may also be given though these may be in direct contradiction to the actual stimuli that impinge upon the subject. Furthermore, memory and awareness of self can be altered by suggestions. All of these may be extended post hypnotically into the individual's subsequent waking activity. It is as if
ideas given during hypnosis come to define the individual's perception of the real world. In this sense, the phenomenon often described as Believed in Fantasy.
Can I be Hypnotized?
Of course, everyone is hypnotizable. because every
human experiences brainwaves associated with hypnosis
and everyone is suggestible, which is the ability to learn.
There will be varying degrees of ability, just like in
learning. However, everybody can learn to get into alpha
and theta brainwave states through hypnosis and go into
deeper levels of these brainwaves with the right training and practice.
