Have you a time where you felt drowsy? Definitely!
Recall a time where you took fever or running nose medicine and you felt drowsy. What is it like?
– your mind cannot concentrate well
– you don’t feel like thinking
If you got work to do, you still force yourself to think and concentrate even the medicine is taking effect.
Drowsiness is just like hypnotic state. You do not feel like thinking. In hypnosis, you can still force yourself to come up to wakeful state. In hypnosis term, it is known as “emerge”.
Like drowsiness, hypnosis can be a situation where the person felt too drowsy (relaxed) and just feel like closing their eyes. Though drowsy, it is unlikely that the person will fall asleep because the hypnotherapist’s words keep the person’s mind engaged.
