People have very different responses to listening to Hypnotic sessions. You don’t have to be under anyone’s spell to benefit from Hypnosis, but it is important to be open to the potential of it so you can relax into a session and follow any instructions without real resistance.
Hypnosis is usually felt to be restful and relaxing; it is different than slumber. As you get towards a trance state you will still be aware of your surroundings, able to hear sounds, to smell, and you are aware of your movements and in control of your actions.
You won’t be ‘asleep’ in any sense but you are likely to be more aware of processes inside your body than in the distractions around you. Scientific studies show trance is a normal, natural state of mind and like other states, such as alertness or pleasure, has many different and individual components.
Concentration does have an impact on how deeply you will enter a Hypnotic state. The better your ability to hear only the sound of the Hypnotist’s voice, the better and quicker you’ll achieve a hypnotic state. But if your concentration is not so good, or you find thoughts drifting, don’t let that stop you. Self-hypnosis practice will improve concentration.
Your age will also impact on your hypnotizability in some very general ways. Due to short attention spans, the very young and the very old do not respond well, sometimes not at all. For these groups one-on-one sessions may work better than Hypnosis MP3s and CDs.
Teenagers sometimes can do really well with self-hypnosis. Although it may depend on what their glands are doing to them at the moment! Some are really receptive so such an alternative treatment, but often the younger ones aren’t interested in it for the right reasons – they might rather ‘Hypnotize’ a friend to do something funny. Hypnotherapy is not stage Hypnosis but it can be a safe, natural part of the human experience and a way to grow mentally.
