Yes. It is 100% safe, natural part of human experience. Always protected by our subconscious, trance is part of every day life (have you ever daydreamed?). We are already proficient in its use, we simply don’t recognise it.

Could I Get ‘Stuck In A Trance’?
No. It simply doesn’t happen. Many enjoy being in hypnosis so much, they sometimes are reluctant to return to a normal state of awareness, but they will come out of this state as soon as they are ready. Even if they are determined to stay in indefinitely, the altered state turns into ordinary sleep, and they shortly awaken feeling refreshed and relaxed.

Will I Reveal Any Secrets?
