What Is Hypnosis? - Deepstash

What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis: a state of highly focused attention, like looking through a camera lens.

Hypnosis involved a narrowing of context and loss of self

An experience is not considered hypnotic if the physical reaction is distracting or makes you think about something else.

Stage hypnosis: what we stereotypically think of someone performing with a pen or hypnotic tool trying to alter the state and actions of others for entertainment.

Clinical hypnosis: enhances control of mind and body by inducing cognitive flexibility and allowing you to shift set easily and change the way you evaluate events
