“Hypnosis. What comes to mind when you hear the word? A caped magician swaying a pocket watch before his subject's eyes? Someone barking like a dog? What should come to mind is this: A smoker chucking the cigarettes forever; a dieter finally losing those persistent pounds...Welcome to the real world of hypnosis.”

-The Capital (Annapolis, MD), 4/04

What is Hypnosis?

All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. In other words, every time that we become emotionally involved in a book or movie, we are in a natural hypnotic trance. Although your conscious mind is aware that you are sitting in a movie theatre watching actors and actresses, your subconscious mind accepts the events in the movie as real because you are in a state of hypnosis.

Our subconscious mind doesn't differentiate between what is real and what is not real; consequently we respond emotionally to what happens on the movie screen.

Hypnosis is derived from the Greek word, hypnos, which means sleep; however it is not a state of sleep. It is instead, a relaxed state of mind that we engage in every day when our brain wave activity slows down to a frequency called "alpha", which we pass through on the way to and from sleep.

When you are hypnotized you stay awake and there is a heightened state of awareness. You are probably more aware than when you are in a non-hypnotic state.
