Being a hypnotist in both stage hypnosis and clinical hypnotherapy, I've had many people ask 'What if I'm not susceptible'. When it comes to being hypnotised, 90% of people will quite easily go into a hypnotic trance. After all everyone goes into trance on a daily basis, ever had someone stood in front of you waving their hand because you was 'daydreaming'? This is a perfect example of waking hypnosis, your eyes are wide awake but as your concentration is fixated on something you go into a trance like state.
Just like the feeling when daydreaming, hypnosis is very similar. You can hear everything around you, any muscle twitches or emotions can be felt throughout. This is because your conscious mind (those thoughts in your head telling you what to say and do) is in a relaxed state and your subconscious mind (your filing system) is heightened and ready to change.
For the ability to take on suggestions when in hypnosis, you have to be able to imagine, using the strong power of an imagination it allows you to visualise the changes you need to make changes. When you think about a feeling that you've experienced, you can normally guarantee there is a situation that comes to mind from a time you felt those feelings.
So over all don't be scared of hypnosis, you can achieve many positive changes when under. Some of these changes can be instantaneous, others do take some time to listen to what your newly programed subconscious is trying to tell you.
