Hypnosis can be used to help you gain control over undesired behaviors or to help you cope better with anxiety or pain. It’s important to know that although you’re more open to suggestion during hypnosis, you don’t lose control over your behavior.
Hypnosis itself is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. I usually do hypnosis with the help of verbal repetition and mental images. When you’re under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and are more open to suggestions.
Even in the lightest states of hypnosis, you may be anywhere from two hundred to a thousand times more open to suggestion than usual, providing these suggestions don’t go against any of your core beliefs.
Have you ever been driving along, and suddenly realized you don’t recall the last several minutes? But you were still in control. You were steering the car, giving it gas, and if someone pulled out in front of you, you would have hit the brakes. You were still in control, but were drifting along sort of on “autopilot”. It’s safe to think of hypnosis being like this. They even call this state “highway hypnosis”. In hypnosis, you are always in control.
