Science of Hypnosis – Deeper Dive

Everyday Hypnosis

I have already given a few good examples where we experience hypnosis everyday, whether we know it or not. These include:


  • Entering sleep


  • Watching movies or television


  • Standing in a long line and waiting, or driving familiar routes or long distances

  • Listening to a monotonous talker and zoning out (like you are doing now)

  • Daydreaming

  • Using your imagination to convince you that smoking makes you relax or that you enjoy smoking, or that eating this would make you feel that… The list goes on here...

  • Building expectations and experiencing that for yourself - a classic example was demonstrated in a study that measured people’s enjoyment of expensive vs inexpensive wines when in reality it was all inexpensive wine. I am sure this resonates with you on some level


  • Getting into the zone in sports - this is an interesting phenomenon that, even if you’re not into any sport, you know exactly what I refer to.
