Can anyone be hypnotized?

Nearly everyone. Some medications and medical conditions that affect the brain may inhibit the ability to enter trance as well as the ability to retain suggestions. However, the literature on this subject is scarce and inconsistent.

In fact, most people briefly put themselves in a trance once or twice per day. But different people respond to different techniques, or different types of suggestions. Some people respond better to direct physical suggestions like “raise your arm.” Other people respond better to indirect or emotional suggestions like “feel your arm become light enough to float.” I include a broad spectrum of suggestions in my recordings so they will be enjoyable for everyone.
