I can understand why some people are apprehensive about hypnosis – they lack clear understanding of it.
Fear not, for there is nothing to be afraid of. People are already subjected to hypnosis several moments in a day. This occurs naturally.
People are afraid because the hypnosis that they associate in their mind is stage hypnosis and hypnotherapy. These are done by inducement.
Whether induced or happen naturally, it is still hypnosis. To put it very simply, hypnosis is about consciousness. Whether you are in a conscious mind state or subconscious mind state, it is still part of our consciousness.
Are people afraid of consciousness?
