We enter a natural state of hypnosis every day.  Anytime we become very focused and disassociate from the present is a natural state of hypnosis.   The following are natural trance states that you may have experienced:

  • Driving without paying attention to your surroundings
  • Tuning out/daydreaming when someone is talking to you
  • Becoming engrossed in a sport, hobby or activity
  • Feeling emotional when reading an emotionally charged book or watching a tear jerker movie
  • As you fall asleep, noticing that you are having dream-like thoughts even though you aren’t asleep yet


When used therapeutically, hypnosis is a powerful way to help people reach their potential by allowing a communication and re-education process that allows the conscious and subconscious to believe the same message.
