Part 4:

Hypnosis is really nothing more than a process of deep relaxation and focused concentration. It is definitely not a loss of consciousness. You are aware of the hypnotist and of things going on around you in the room. If you have ever done relaxation exercises or listened to relaxation tapes, the process of hypnosis will feel very familiar to you. When you are under hypnosis, you yourself decide what to reveal and what not to reveal. You can refuse to answer questions if you are not feeling prepared to discuss the memories. You can ask to come out of hypnosis at any time.

When your hypnosis session is over, you will most likely remember whatever came up, and you might even find more new images coming into you conscious mind during the next several days. These flashbacks can sometimes be upsetting, so try to plan how you will take care of yourself during the stressful time. The hypnotist can be a good source of support for you, as can others who have had similar experiences. Hypnosis is not magic. The memories do not always seem complete, nor are they all crystal clear, but many who have explored abduction experiences using hypnosis have found it to be an extremely useful tool, one that helped them to find and piece together the fragments of their memories.
