One of the key word used in hypnosis is the term “Critical Factor”. What is Critical Factor?
It is an imaginary line that separates the conscious mind and unconscious mind. As we know, there is no actual barrier that separates the two mind consciousness. By having this imaginary line, it helps us to know better about hypnosis.
This is because hypnosis occurs when suggestions bypass the conscious mind and enter into the subconscious mind. The imaginary line or critical factor is like a gate that opens to allow data and information to freely flow into the unconscious mind as well as close to prevent too much data from seeping into the unconscious mind before the processing is done at the conscious level.
