It can be described as a state in which you mind pays attention to things in a different way. In hypnosis, you are more open to acceptable suggestions and more likely to follow them whether the suggestion is to achieve something, to think about something or to imagine something more vividly, which you may find difficult in your normal state of waking consciousness. There is nothing unnatural about suggestibility, and hypnosis is a perfectly normal ability. You are in control throughout and are aware.
