Truth # 4: You’re conscious and alert the whole time.
It’s important that you remember all the insight you gain from your hypnosis sessions.
During hypnosis, the conscious mind is temporarily by-passed so that the subconscious mind can take in information without the interference of the conscious mind.
Therefore, while you'll be very focused on your inner journey of discovery, you’ll still be conscious and alert the whole time. You'll remember as much of what you've experienced in the hypnotic state as you would from taking in a lecture or talking to a friend, and you'll emerge from hypnosis feeling refreshed and renewed.
There are no recorded cases in history of people unable to emerge from hypnosis. There are, however, cases of people not wanting to emerge because they feel so relaxed and at peace.
