Hypnosis is a naturally occurring heightened focused state of awareness. Simply stated, hypnosis is the narrowing of concentration where you focus on one particular thing at a time.
With hypnosis you remain under control of your selectivity, your willpower and all your faculties and can hear, see, feel, smell, taste and speak. You actually have more control of your faculties.
Hypnosis is an altered state of consciousness, where the subconscious level of the mind is open to receiving acceptable suggestions.
