Hypnotic trance is a completely normal state, one you experience every day, perhaps while watching TV or driving a familiar route. It is a narrowing of attention so that distractions are shut out and a focused awareness is achieved. It is not a mysterious state, but a state that every person, with very few exceptions can easily reach. The conscious mind, which is the rational and analytical mind, is suspended for a time, while the unconscious mind, which holds all our emotions, our memories and our creativity, is more fully accessed to provide resources not usually available. Emotional blocks that you may not even be aware of are released. The trance state is similar to meditation. In this state the innate powers of the human mind, which are usually untapped, flow freely and enhance every area of life.
A typical session is about an hour. In the initial session the therapist will discuss your reasons for pursuing therapy and what you want to achieve. The therapist will explain hypnosis and answer all questions. When you feel comfortable, the therapist will begin to work with the trance state in order to accomplish your desired results. People describe trance differently, but generally everyone agrees that it is a relaxing and pleasant experience. Many people are surprised that they continue to experience thoughts, hear sounds and even speak while in trance. You are aware of what is going on, you will not do or say anything that is not in harmony with your deepest nature. The unconscious mind is your truest friend and constant protector.
