A trance is like a daydream. Have you ever noticed how when you spontaneously daydream, you’re totally focused and everything is crystal clear? Or when you’re totally engrossed in a movie and your emotions are spilling over. That’s a trance too. A hypnotist helps you recreate and prolong this ‘daydream’ (i.e. a trance) as this is exactly when the subconscious is at its most suggestible.
