Q: Is Hypnosis safe?
A: Yes, it’s a totally natural state.
Q: Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
A: No, no more than you could get stuck asleep.
Q: Can anyone be hypnotised?
A: Yes, but it depends on the situation. Maybe you wouldn’t want to be hypnotised by a stage hypnotist and ‘made to look a fool’ so you wouldn’t follow the instructions. If you needed an operation and there was no anaesthetic but a hypnotist on hand, you would want to be hypnotised so you wouldn’t resist it. You are ultimately in control.
Q: I didn’t feel like I was in trance, I mean I was aware of things…
A: Sometimes you hear everything other times you may drift deeply away, or maybe you drift in and out, aware of some bits and in a daze for other bits… The suggestions go in either way.
If you lose awareness of feelings, sight, sounds, tastes and smells that’s not hypnosis, that’s death!
