What is hypnosis?
The term hypnosis comes from a Greek root "hypnos" meaning "sleep." Hypnosis is a trance or "daydreaming" like state. However, hypnosis is not a state of sleeping as most people imagine. Unlike sleep, one’s senses become more heightened in hypnosis. Hypnosis is a state of deep relaxation. This deep relaxation allows your unconscious mind to communicate with your conscious mind. In other words you can access inner wisdom and information easily in this highly relaxed state called hypnosis. Ever seen children watching TV? It becomes really hard to get their attention sometimes. They are so engrossed in what they are watching; they are in trance.
