A: Have you ever been so absorbed in a television show or a book that time just seemed to fly by? Have you ever driven from one location to another and when you arrived at your destination, you couldn’t remember driving most (or all!) of the route? These are all examples of hypnotic states.
Simply put, hypnosis is a deep state of awareness, focused attention, and inner absorption. A hypnotic process happens anytime your attention is focused and possibilities for change are offered.
