No you don’t have to concentrate at all, it does not matter if your conscious mind wanders and thinks of other things during the hypnosis since you will take in all the suggestions on a subconscious level
It is very normal to become so relaxed that you fall asleep when you are listening to the hypnosis audio.
However the subconscious mind never sleeps which is why we don’t fall out of bed even though we turn over and move around.
Even if you fall asleep while listening, the suggestions are still becoming embedded into your subconscious mind.
Hypnosis is a natural relaxed state where you are not asleep or out of control.
Hypnosis is a sleep of the nervous system it is a state where you are very relaxed but also aware, a bit like that feeling when you wake up in the morning and you know exactly where you are but you feel too relaxed to want to get up.
It’s a state where the body is relaxed but the mind is alert and you can never be made to do anything you don’t want to whilst hypnotised.
However you are more likely to accept suggestions that please you such as stopping smoking drinking or eating sugar as the critical factor in your mind locks onto positive suggestions whilst you are hypnotised.
Since the mind always does what it thinks you want it to do (i.e. smoking or eating sweets when you are stressed) hypnosis is a fantastic and rapid way of getting it to give you the results you want by putting clear and precise images in your mind of the way you wish to be.
Hypnotherapy uses hypnosis to bring about beneficial changes in a rapid and permanent way.
Suggestions that the client wishes to hear are given to the subconscious mind while you are in a relaxed state of hypnosis.
The suggestions are designed to excite and motivate the body to change.
Our mind influences our body and hypnosis is the most effective way to influence and direct our minds for positive change.
Anyone can be hypnotized if that they want to be as it is a natural state that we drift in and out of all the time every day.
It works through the power of suggestions that are given to your subconscious mind in a very specific way using particular language patterns that cause the mind to accept and act off these suggestions.
You will feel very relaxed you might feel as if you are in a trance like dreamy state.
You will actually be in a state of heightened awareness - which is very pleasant.
You are not asleep nor are you fully awake but you are always in control.
If you miss a night, you don’t need to start again. Just continue to listen and aim to not miss any more.
