In contradiction to how it is perceived, hypnosis is a natural phenomenon. It is similar to the experience we have while watching a thriller movie or reading our favourite novel. Imagine reading an interesting chapter of your favourite novel or watching a scene of a thriller movie. What happens to your peripheral awareness then? How fascinated do you feel in that situation?
