Studies show that everyone is able to enter the hypnotic trance state. The only thing that varies is the amount of time it will take for you to go into a trance state. When you see people staring at TV they are in a trance. A useful belief is that we are all in and out of different trance states throughout the day; with hypnosis we are able to get out of limiting trances and into more resourceful ones. Hypnosis is like any skill that can be learnt, the more you practice it the easier it becomes.
