The aim of this brief synopsis is to review the relationship between hypnosis and dreaming and to present theoretical and clinical implications related to both phenomena. For this purpose, I considered hypnotic dreams and sleep dreams; hypnosis and posthypnotic suggestion as presleep conditions affecting, sleep mentation; REM, suggestibility, hypnosis, cognition, and consciousness; dream recall and hypnotizability; psychopathological perspectives; and lucid dreaming, out-of-body experiences, hypnosis. It may be suggested that there is a strong and plausible relationship between sleep states and hypnotic phenomena. The investigation of this relationship will help to understand the underlying mechanisms of these experiences.

Keywords: Sleep, dreaming, hypnosis, consciousness, cognition.
