Hypnosis is a natural, relaxed state that quiets the chatter of the conscious mind, allowing for communication with the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind controls the autonomic systems of the body (regulates heart rate, blood pressure, breathing, etc.) and holds all of our belief systems. Everything that we have ever experienced is stored in the permanent memory that is our subconscious mind. The conscious mind is the analytical, reasoning, chattering mind that rationalized good or bad and solves problems. Most of the habits and physical symptoms that we experience as adults are influenced by our subconscious mind. In the hypnotic state, both conscious and subconscious minds are present; however, the chatter of the conscious mind is slowed down so the hypnotherapist can work effectively with the subconscious mind to transform the negative beliefs and effectively process the emotions linked to the experiences that created pain, fear, sadness, anger, guilt, shame, low self-esteem, etc. Once the subconscious mind accepts a new idea, it is automatically accepted at the conscious mind level.

Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis as a transformational modality. Hypnotherapists are qualified to use various life-transforming methods other than suggestion therapy while the client is in the hypnotic state. The goal of a Hypnotherapy session is to find the underlying cause or root of an illness and treat the emotional aspect that triggered it thereby eliminating it. Because the transformation is done on a subconscious level, Hypnotherapy brings about life changing results unmatched by any other form of therapy. As long as the client is willing and ready to be hypnotized, the hypnotherapist offers suggestions for relaxation and deepening of the relaxation state. In this state, the client is fully aware of what is happening and is extremely alert as the hypnotic state is a state of heightened suggestibility and increased awareness.

You are in control at all times during hypnosis. Because hypnosis is a state of increased awareness, you are actually more aware of the experience. The hypnotherapist serves as a facilitator to help you connect with your subconscious mind, which puts you in control. As you are more aware and in control, anything like secrets that you do not wish to reveal can be withheld from the hypnotherapist. Any suggestion by the hypnotherapist that you do not understand or you do not like will be rejected by your subconscious mind and the hypnotherapist cannot make you do anything against your will.

You cannot get stuck in the hypnotic state. Since you are completely aware of your surroundings at all times, you can come out of the hypnotic state at any time. You are not asleep as sleep is not hypnosis because you are more aware of your surroundings. If an emergency happened around you, you would simply open your eyes and break the hypnotic state. If a suggestion was made by the hypnotherapist that you did not like, you will be able to just open your eyes to address it.

Everyone enters hypnosis at least twice a day as the mind cycles down into sleep and as it awakens. Maybe you've been so into a book that when someone calls your name you don't even hear him or her. Quite often people drift off into light hypnosis while driving. Let's say you are driving along and your mind begins to daydream, and then before you know it you've reached your destination and you don't even remember the drive there or maybe time has passed so quickly you can't believe you are there already. That is hypnosis. About 90% of all people can be hypnotized. Those who are mentally handicapped may have trouble accessing the state due to inability to focus and accept suggestions.
