Is it necessary to be sleepy for hypnosis or meditation to work?

Recommended Posts

I've often wondered why it's important to be sleepy or half conscious for hypnosis to work.  I can understand the notion of tapping into the sleeping mind so that it activates without inhibitions.  However, if I'm very drowsy as I do my meditation or am in a hypnosis session, then am I not just as likely to fall asleep?  Is it better to be alert?  And, if so then does the subconscious mind still become engaged as a result of hypnosis?

Okay so hypnosis is not sleeping. Hypnosis is a state of suggestability where we bypass the contious and go directly to the subcontious. I know it seems as sleep, but the fact is that you are completly alert and just more suggestable.

this is how we access the subcontious mind.
