If you have ever driven a few miles without remembering them, lost yourself in a good movie, became completely absorbed in an interesting book or been taken away by a beautiful performance or sight, you were in a light state of hypnosis. Such moments when the conscious mind is disengaged facilitates the subconscious in becoming more open and receptive.

Hypnosis is induced by a therapist by focusing a subject’s attention in a manner that heightens the subject’s receptivity to suggestion. A state of relaxation and concentration facilitates accessibility to deeper parts of the mind.
