No one can be hypnotized against his or her will. Everyone with normal intellect can be hypnotized, and in fact, everyone with normal intelligence goes into hypnosis spontaneously several times a day without realizing that is what is happening. One can never be made to do anything against his or her will, and this is true both during hypnosis sessions and by way of any post-hypnotic suggestions. Hypnosis is not magical, mystical, occult, nor demonic. People who are stronger-minded and strong-willed who want to be hypnotized achieve excellent results from hypnosis. No one can be tricked when they are in hypnosis any more easily than he or she could in his or her normal awake state. Hypnosis is an extremely relaxed state; however, it is not habit forming. Hypnosis is not brainwashing. A person could never somehow get locked in a state of hypnosis. Just as a person would never think, "I'd like to take a nap, but I wouldn't wake up for the next thirty-eight years." When one is hypnotized, one is not asleep, unconscious, in some distant trance, nor under the control of the hypnotist.
