in simple terms
Hypnosis is a safe and natural way of using your mind to focus on the things you want to change or achieve. It’s a simple and effective way of using your attention and imagination which have a powerful influence over your feelings, thoughts, and actions.
Being hypnotized is very similar to travelling on a train or a bus and being relaxed, engrossed in the landscape… time goes by without your noticing. External sounds and conversations of those around you seem like indistinct noises and chatter from afar. You are awake, completely focused on that scenery, reliving memories, or creating new ones in your limitless imagination.
Are there any special skills required to be hypnotized? No, anyone can be hypnotized if they agree to it, and no special skills are required. A good attitude, motivation and positive expectation set the groundwork for a desired outcome. It's all about concentrating, thinking along and letting go.
"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire universe, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution." Albert Einstein
