Trance States Explained
Throughout your day you will enter what are called a trance states. The phrase ” trance states ” sounds like something we would normally associate with stage hypnotism but it is in fact a perfectly normal state of limited conscious awareness. You might for example have had the experience when you were in a classroom or a meeting and you find your mind wandering off. Then someone will ask you a question and you will suddenly snap back to attention. You may not even be able to recall exactly what it was that you were focusing on just moments before. These times when your mind wanders is a mild form a trance state.
You can notice whether or not you are in one of these trance states if your attention is limited and there is a repetition to your thoughts. When you are experiencing a particular deep trance you attention will be limited to the point that you are focusing on only one thing and all other things in your environment will be cut off.
Meditation Trance States
When people meditate they use a mantra such as repeating the word “om” in order to focus the mind on one single sound. This helps to induce this same deep trance state. Another example you might be familiar with is when you have a song stuck in your head and you cannot help but keep singing it. Again this is an example of trance state.
TV Trance States
Have you found yourself lost in tv show or movie while someone was trying to talk to you? These are trance states. These trance states are taken advantage of by TV commercials. If you have ever watched a commercial and you have noticed that they are repeating actions or phrases then you have partaken in an induced trance. The idea is that your attention is limited and at the same time overloaded with the same crepeated idea. This is also a common feature of religious ceremonies which will use chanting and the repetition of phrases in order to create this trance state.
Through the use of repetition your mind starts to enter into a tight loop. Your mind will after some time believe that this tight loop is normal. Once these trance states have been induced you will likely feel that you are able to make ordinary conscious decisions but actually the conscious version of you is still in a trance. When people are in a trance state that are susceptible to having subconscious.
