I have been a hypnotist/hypnotherapist for over four decades and have worked with over 35,000 clients. The process that is called hypnosis is a process that is always going on in the human brain and can be intentionally used to change and alter behavior. Yes, hypnosis is a process that happens between the human mind and brain. However, it appears to me, that “hypnosis” is not something that a person goes into or under but rather the formerly mentioned process that is always operating. It is just that the process works the best when the subject is in a conscious state of sleep!
You can be asleep but still aware and conscious… just like dreaming. While dreaming a dream you are not unconscious! While dreaming a dream you are perfectly conscious of what you are dreaming, and even remember it sometimes when you wake up. But while dreaming a dream you are in fact asleep. So that must mean that we can be both at the same time—asleep and conscious. It is while in a conscious state of sleep that the process of hypnosis works best to make a change in behavior.
Train your mind to instruct your brain.
