I cannot possibly describe everything that happens to a person under hypnosis!
This is a huge question
However, I will try my best 🙂
Now first of all, I want to share that not everyone will experience the same hypnotic phenomena
And not everyone goes through the same type of hypnosis
Because everyone is different!
So here are some general themes of hypnosis 🙂
You probably already know this hahahah
A person under hypnosis usually (not always) experience a feeling of relaxation
Which is why you will find a lot of relaxation in hypnosis
And of course, you might notice that relaxation occurs in other situations too
Makes you wonder eh?
Hey no I am serious!!
Focus is another hypnotic phenomena that people experience
Let me explain
When a person is under hypnosis or entering a trance
The person is so focused on one thing
And if could be entering the world in their mind
And they don’t really become aware of what’s happening elsewhere
Imagine having such a intense conversation on a date and not noticing anything around
Or studying so intensely you didn’t realize you miss 2 meals
Yup yup, exactly like that 🙂
3. Stillness of the body
Yup, you may or may not realize it but your body can go really still
And in case you are wondering, sometimes its the whole body and sometimes its only part of the body
You see, most humans generally fidget, we just cannot keep still
And yea, some people can keep still pretty well
So what is happening when you notice a person who normally doesn’t keep still, suddenly more still than usual?
Yup! It’s possible the person is experiencing some type of hypnotic trance! 😀
Both visual or auditory hallucinations might occur, again depending on the individual
Some might see worlds or images, while others might hear sounds, voices or music
In fact, we can even go into other types of hallucinations like taste or even smell!
And yes, this is only from a hypnotic trance!
5. Time distortion
This is really cool actually
Time distortion is basically the feeling of time going really fast or going really slow
And this occurs under hypnosis too
It’s very common for my clients to feel like hours have past when it’s only 30 minutes
Or felt like it was really fast like 5 minutes but an hour has past!
Where do you experience time distortion too? 😉
So these are some of the usual hypnotic phenomena that are commonly experienced by people in a hypnotic trance
And here is a bonus hypnotic phenomena that is unique and really interesting!
Bonus: Indeomotor response
This is basically the movement of parts of the body from the unconscious mind and not consciously willed
Alright let me try to explain this as best I can, because this is not so commonly experienced
For example, a person might go into hypnosis and the arm starts to move by itself
No it’s not a possession LOL
It’s an ideomotor response!
The arm is moving because of the unconscious mind
And two reasons are because it is moving because the unconscious mind wants it to move
Or because something is happening like therapy and the change happening is causing the arm to move
Hope this article expands your awareness of what happens under hypnosis!
And remember that not everyone experiences the same!
And there are a lot more hypnotic phenomena that happens too!
But I want to cut this short hahahah
