Hypnosis is a natural state of mind with numerous healing benefits. Everyone has the ability to respond to hypnosis. In fact, all humans go in and out of a light trance all day, every day.
Hypnosis is a highly focused and profoundly creative state of mind. In this existence, we use insightful, vividly abstract imagery and positive words to change our perspectives.
Hypnosis allows us to soften our analytical thoughts so we can be more open to change. Since we are more open, it is easier to eliminate negative thoughts and to establish more positive beliefs about ourselves and about life.
Practicing hypnosis balances the mind, body and spirit - aiding in the alignment of our own inner wisdom and conscious reality. Also, (bonus): it strengthens our immune systems, relaxes our muscles and aids in stabilizing our nervous systems.
While there are many myths and misconceptions, a person cannot "get stuck" in hypnosis and cannot be forced to do anything they don't want to do. Furthermore, although it is incredibly relaxing, hypnosis is not the same thing as sleep; on the contrary, it is a state of hyper-awareness.
In a land somewhere between a day-dream and a night-dream, the most relaxing realm exists, and that realm is hypnosis.
