Hypnosis is a state of pleasant relaxation in which we become more responsive to positive suggestions of self-improvement. It is not like being asleep and definitely NOT a state of mind control or some kind of trance. You cannot be made to do anything against your will. On the contrary, you must want to accept suggested ideas and actively imagine responding to experience their effects. The idea of being ‘under somebody else's power’ stems from movies and TV hypnosis.
In this context 'ego' does NOT refer to being arrogant or self important but more and individual's overall adaptability and personal resourcefulness when it comes to dealing with life. Find a quiet space, relax, think positively and immerse yourself in this 20 minute exercise.
Do not watch or listen to this material whilst driving or operating machinery or where it is not safe for you to close your eyes and fully relax.
