Part 4: Emerging from Hypnosis
Given how simple it is to emerge from hypnosis, it may not seem as though it warrants its own article. But there are a couple of notes I want to give you regarding things you may experience after coming out of a state of hypnosis.
When you decide to come out of trance, you’ll open your eyes and look around, refamiliarize yourself with your surroundings. Give your head a shake and move around a little bit. Chances are that you’re going to feel good. Similar to the way you feel after waking up from a pleasant dream.
It’s also possible that you’ll be feeling a little bit groggy and tired. One of the interesting things about emerging from trance is that even though your eyes are open and you’re moving around, you’re still in trance. It takes most people a couple of minutes to come all the way back to a full waking state. You may notice that, during this time, you find yourself spacing out a little bit.
I’d like to reiterate just how much more success you’ll experience with self hypnosis if you make a habit of doing it every day. It’s a good idea to have a particular place where you can go once a day, every day. You’ll find that by getting accustomed to going into trance in the same place every day, that the process of going into trance will become extremely easy. To the point that you can induce a state of hypnosis simply by sitting down in the chair. Once that is the case, you no longer have to think about the formalities of inducing the state, and can instead just focus on enjoying the experience to its fullest extent. this is where your creativity can really take off.
You’re most likely also going to have the experience of coming out of trance after a session and not feeling particularly satisfied or enriched by it. It’s unfortunate, but it happens. Sometimes our lives can keep us a little distracted from really creating the experience we want to have. Don’t get discouraged. the important part is that you put in the effort to do the best you could on that particular day at that particular time. Keep at it, eventually you’ll get where you want to go.
