We present a detailed case study of a highly hypnotizable subject who reliably shows a range of changes in both automatic and volitional eye movements when given a hypnotic induction. These changes correspond well with the phenomenon referred to as the “trance state” in the hypnosis literature. Our results show that this ‘trance state’ is associated with large and objective changes in the optokinetic reflex, the pupillary reflex and programming a saccade to a single target. Control subjects could not imitate these changes voluntarily. For the majority of people, hypnotic induction brings about states resembling normal focused attention or mental imagery.Our data nevertheless highlight that in some cases hypnosis may involve a special state, which qualitatively differs from the normal state of consciousness. You may be surprised to learn that you have been hypnotized many times in your life. In fact, you probably go in and out of hypnosis throughout the course of your regular day.
The process of daydreaming is a positive form of trance or the natural state ‘hypnosis’ where we find ourselves hyper focused on a mental image or possible outcome. By utilizing this skill you can create positive emotions and thought processes around your strengths and potential. In a busy world you can often get caught up in the stress of day to day life, you rush around without really noticing how you are feeling. We teach simple Mindfulness techniques to help with stress, anxiety, bad habits, depression and other issues. What is Mindfulness? In a nutshell Mindfulness is a simple meditation, focusing on the present moment with acceptance of the here and now, acknowledging thoughts, feelings and how a human body is feeling at that time without judgement and without actively trying to change anything.
