I too, have just started the tapes. I do feel very realxed and trusting of Mike's voice as I listen, but I don't know if I am truly hypnotized since I am still conscious and very focused on his voice as he tells me to be. I guess I can describe the feeling as being serene yet aware of my surroundings and his voice.I have read on here that most people fall asleep and never remember a word he says. I am just the opposite, but I believe in what he is "safely and gently" telling me. I am only through day 3, but feel more able to relax with each session. Have any of you who have been through the program behave like I do during the sessions? Do you find yourself able to get deeper and deeeper into a relaxed state as time progresses?
