Can I be hypnotized?
Of course you can! You already have been. It’s easy to go into hypnosis and it is a normal state of mind that everyone has already experienced.


In fact, hypnosis is such a normal state of mind, most people usually don’t even realize that they are hypnotized.


Normal, everyday hypnosis occurs when you are driving down the road and lose track of time, or, when you are focusing on a book or television program and you don’t even notice something that is going on around you.


When you come in for hypnosis, all you need to do is to be able to follow the instructions of the hypnotherapist and you can put the power of hypnosis to work for you.


Anyone of at least normal intelligence and the willingness to follow instructions can experience hypnosis and use it to improve his or her life. This includes children and teenagers.
