Hypnosis is just focused concentration. You do it every day.
Have you ever driven your car and ended up at home, not remembering the journey?
Have you ever been writing your blog and someone walks up behind you, causing you to jump out of your chair?
Have you ever been in the middle of reading that next great book and a loud noise causes you to let out a scream?
If you have experienced any of the above, you have been in a hypnotic state. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind. Depending upon how focused you were doing any of the above, you could have been in a very light to a much deeper hypnotic state.
There are scientific words to describe the four brainwave frequency levels that a person can go through or enter while being hypnotically regressed: Beta, Alpha, Theta and Delta. An electroencephalogram (EEG) can measure these levels. Beta is when we are awake, alert and fully aware of our surroundings. Alpha is when we are relaxed, maybe daydreaming or even in a light hypnotic state. Theta is a meditative, drowsy or deep hypnotic state. Finally, there is Delta—the state we are in during a deep sleep.
For past life regression via hypnosis one can go through all the stages, but mostly the brain stays in a Theta state.
