Can I get stuck in hypnosis?
No. You cannot get stuck in trance. Since you are so aware of what’s going on, you also can easily come out of the trance if you chose too, or if nothing is happening you naturally emerge from your hypnotic state. You naturally go in and out of hypnosis throughout your day. You do not get stuck during those times either. Everything happens by choice. This is not like the movies where hypnosis is portrayed in a skewed way.
