We use intense visualisation to induce a heighten awareness state which we refer to as a trance. Using hypnosis allows us to go deep within in a healing awareness. I think of the mind in three parts- conscious, sub conscious and unconscious. When we use hypnosis, we dive deep within the unconscious mind. We plant subliminal messages or suggestions which are like seed, that start to germinate even in the awaken state. We can use hypnosis to re-programme our mind and take control over our thoughts and behaviour.
