One of the most common statements I hear from new clients is “I’m not sure I can be hypnotized”.
Actually, hypnosis is a natural state of mind that we all go in and out of several times a day. You’re commonly in a state of hypnosis while watching tv, engrossed in a good book or working at your computer. It’s simply a pleasant brainwave state that occurs when you are mentally focused on something specific and not aware of outside stimuli. Daydreaming is another example of hypnosis.
Virtually anyone who wants to be hypnotized to achieve a goal can be hypnotized. Three factors that influence your success are:
1. Willingness to relax and to enter hypnosis
2. Ability to use your imagination
3. Motivation for change
