What is an Aha! moment?

This is a moment when one suddenly has a revelation; an experience of understanding a previously incomprehensible problem or concept.

Aha! in hypnosis

Hypnosis is a bit like this – a succession of Aha! moments.

The Aha! moment is achieved by entering a trance-like state in order to receive hypnotic suggestions. Not everyone has the ability to go into this at the first attempt. The reasons for this are many; at the top of the list is fear of the unknown, possibly a lack of trust or rapport with the therapist.

But . . . the Aha! moment CAN be achieved by anyone. It is often a matter of time and familiarity.

Once learned, the ability to go into deep relaxation always stays with you.
