What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis is an altered state of relaxed awareness that allows selective and focused attention.

Interestingly, while the term hypnosis is derived from the Greek word “hypnos” which means to sleep, a subject under hypnosis is able to achieve a highly intensified and vividly awake internal state. This allows him to travel beyond ordinary everyday consciousness and access the deeper memories and forgotten experiences that lie buried in the subconscious mind. This state of deep physical relaxation accompanied by enhanced internal concentration creates elliptical awareness, wherein one can be aware of the emerging subconscious memory and what is happening in the present moment environment at the same point in time.

Contrary to popular misconception a subject under hypnosis never loses control, freewill or personal judgment.
