You are not asleep while in hypnosis. Hypnosis is a natural state of your mind, where you are able to open your subconscious mind to beneficial suggestions that will help you reach your desired outcome. The process of hypnosis gives the subconscious mind a suggestion for change or improvement. Everyone experiences a hypnotic-like state in moments of daydreaming, intense concentration, and when entering and exiting sleep.

The success of hypnosis depends on the motivation of the client. Some goals are reached immediately, others take more reinforcement as each individual is different.
