  • I think hypnosis is a mental state that is which induced by a series of instructions usually given by a hypnotherapist. The hypnotic state is characterized by an increased mental focus on one object, for example a pendulum, and a high responsiveness to suggestions. In the time of hypnosis, the focused attention is accompanied by a reduced ability to objectively judge situations. Being intensely immersed in something involves reduced thought and evaluation processes, and thus hypnotized subjects are highly responsive to suggestions. I think these information may be helpful to you.Thanks.
