What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a state of relaxation, much like meditation. This is the state most useful in self-improvement. This state allows you to access and put to use the power of your subconscious mind. It allows the cluttered conscious mind to relax, creating a clear path for the logical, highly focused subconscious mind to accept positive suggestion and make the desired changes. Your subconscious mind represents over 80% of your brain, and is also the 'store-house' for all of your memories.
Definition by Mayo Clinic:
Hypnosis, also referred to as hypnotherapy or hypnotic suggestion, is a trance-like state in which you have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is usually done with the help of a therapist using verbal repetition and mental images. When you're under hypnosis, you usually feel calm and relaxed, and are more open to suggestions. 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.
