Contrary to what you may have seen on television shows or in the movies, hypnosis is not a mysterious state, devoid of awareness, in which you can be made to do things against your will. Hypnosis is actually quite relaxing and often very comforting. You're completely aware of everything that's being said and done. Some people even wonder if they experienced it at all because of misconceptions about what it's like.
Hypnosis is, in fact, a very natural state. We go in an out of it during our daily lives.
