  1. break me of YA says:

    Usually when people are hypnotized they fall into a Theta state, one of the states for sleeping. There is nothing mystical about it. The other part is how much the patient trusts the hypnotist because if they do trust then there is more work that can be done.

    However, you still see fat, vice laden hypnotists, so it is not a panacea

    The two big theories are the altered state theory of Franz Anton Mesmer & Sigmund Freud and the overactive imagination/ power of suggestion theory of Kreskin. The person Kreskin (who styles himself as “Amazing”) offers a hundred-thousand dollar reward to anyone who can prove that hypnosis really exists and that it has a valid application. I wish you well if you want to collect on it.

    Hypnosis is natural relax state of mind. Hypnosis is physically, mentally, and emotionally relaxing state of body. Hypnosis doesn’t mean sleep, but a state where body is almost at sleep state and mind is completely active

    Our brain operates on four different states. These four states of mind determined by the frequency of the electricity (Brain waves) generated by the exchange of chemicals in the neural pathways.
