Some people think of hypnosis as strange and mysterious side shows run by magicians. Hypnosis is not mysterious; you have been in hypnotic states hundreds of times in your life and will continue to, until you die. You will not notice it because it’s such a natural state, just like being half asleep half awake or just a trance like state. It could have been one time when you were driving along a familiar road, and at the end of your journey not been able to remember how you drove your car, turning the steering wheel, looking in the mirrors, pressing the accelerator pedal, using your indicators. You were probably listening to the radio, or thinking of a member of family or cooking a meal, or something like that. This is a common occurrence, you were in trance state, where hypnosis could occur.
We experience hypnotic trance-like states all the time without knowing, we call it day dreaming. When you are completely immersed in a project, you don’t seem to notice things happening around you, like reading a book. planning or preparing things that need your utmost attention, you’re unaware of people speaking, and and time seems to pass quickly. This is called an altered state of attention, and can happen, when watching films, listening to radio, driving a car, and other times you need to be absorbed in what you are doing. So hypnosis can occur anytime, it is not a sleep state although it seems like it.
