Your perception is driven by your values As they say, your perceptions become your reality, and that is why it is really good not to have perceptions of hypnosis but in a particular hypnotic trance.
When someone perceives trance, it does two things: it takes away from your concentration, and if the trance is not like you imagined, you think that you have not gone into a trance. When this happens, you then begin to question what has happened.
I had a customer at Quit Smoking in Capalaba the other day who did not think she had gone into a trance. When I asked her about this, she told me that she did not feel as if she had gone into a trance as it was not the way that she imagined that it was going to be. Even though I had explained that neither she nor I had any idea of how it would be when she went into trance. She had gone into a trance by displaying several signs of being in a trance.
When you come for a hypnosis procedure, the best piece of advice that I can give you is to be open to the process and take it as it comes. Don’t try to control it; allow it to happen and enjoy the process.
