You may have come across the term “Post Hypnotic Suggestions” before.It is often implied in the wording that you get the suggestions after you have been hypnotised and are in the waking state. Hypnotic suggestions do not work in this way, you are hypnotised and enter the trance state before being brought back to the waking state, then you re-enter the trance state for the suggestions to take hold. Once the suggestions have been given, you return to the waking state.
