Can be described as “To relax the physical body to focus on the brain and the subconscious”.
Nevertheless, hypnosis in the scientific world cannot be described with absolute precision. In this respect it is easier to tell what it is not to tell what it is.
Trance is NOT a sleep, unconsciousness, magic or mind control.
While in trance:
You become aware of your surroundings. You hear sounds, smell, and control your movements.
The awareness of the internal processes (processes) increases, not the distracting mobility of the external world.
You can choose what you want to focus on.
It has been thought that those who are traditionally hypnotized will react to all the suggestions given and that the hypnotist will control their movement.
Suggestions play a role in daily life as in hypnosis. For example; This is a suggestion when we say; Let’s go to dinner, I’ve heard that the restaurant around the corner is good”.
There is no such thing as losing mind control in hypnosis. A good therapist helps the client to reach a conclusion by looking at the options available, directing the client to be more selective.
Problems arise when the information in the subconscious are incorrect, old or misinterpreted; a sick child hearing the doctor say, “he has to eat more to survive” can be recorded in the subconscious mind that “I need to eat more to survive” and then this leads to weight problems. If a girl hears that her parents want a boy from birth, she is likely to grow up to feel worthless, unpopular person because she is a girl.
With so many messages outside our conscious awareness, we grow up with feelings of worthlessness, insecurity or excessive appetite without knowing the reasons for them. Trance helps to find the source of such problems and find a solution. This is often called hypno-analysis.
Trance separates us from restrictive analytic and rigid conscious thinking and leads us to the imaginative creative sources of the subconscious.
Everyone’s trance experience is different but also similar. During the trance, physical changes occur which are observed by the therapist. In general, rhythm of breathing changes and slows down; There is a relaxation in the muscles and the facial muscles relax. The lower lip becomes fuller, the skin colour becomes darker or pale. Eyelids move quickly, which usually means that the client visualizes.
Feedback from our clients who went into trance with hypnosis:
“I’ve never been more relaxed in my life”
“It was so enjoyable that I didn’t want to come back”
“I couldn’t have been in a trance because I heard everything you said.
“I could come out of trance any time”
“I could control my movements, so I couldn’t have been in trance”
A skilled hypnotherapist notes that the client does not want to return because he likes the trance and proposes to teach self-hypnosis before getting the client out of the trance.
