Hypnosis is a mental state in which the client experiences increased attention and concentration and is in a suggestible state. While hypnosis seems like a sleep-like state, it is better explained as a state of focused attention with vivid fantasies and a heightened state of suggestibility. We generally see the person under hypnosis in a sleep mode, but the client is actually in a state of hyper-awareness.

The unconscious is a state that happens automatically, and the thoughts and decisions of the unconscious are not available for introspection. A cenote of thoughts, feelings, memories, and desires that live outside of our conscious mind is known as the unconscious mind. We are unaware of these feelings, desires, and memories in the functional state of the mind that we use to cope with our daily chores, relationships, and society.
