Meditation is a technique to relaxed yourself where you are conscious about the things whereas hypnosis is a technique where one is unconscious about the things and he don't what is happening around him.

Is it true that the smarter you are, the easier you are to hypnotize? I hear that all the time and am just wondering.

In fact hypnosis and meditation are different states. Although Wendi is correct that some meditations attempt to clear your mind of thoughts (whether this is even a goal that makes sense neurologically is debatable), there are many meditative states that attempt to increase mindfulness and even bodily awareness. For instance, [url=http://chelucero.com/meditation/110-hours-of-meditation-in-10-days-what-i-learned/Vipassana[/url] meditation includes attentive and focused scanning of the body. No elimination of thought is presented as a goal.

Having done hundreds of hours of both meditation and hypnosis, my experience is that hypnosis and meditation are two very different disciplines representing and utilizing entirely different states of mind.
