Hybridisation is the phenomenon of intermixing of atomic orbitals of comparable energies to form a set of same number of new orbitals of equal energy and identical in all respect.

for example if we consider the structure of CH4 ,The central atom is C and the 4 hydrogen comes to form bond with the carbon atom so C ,intermix its orbitals and form 4 new hybrid orbital of equal energy and identical in respect ,formed and so, the orbital of 1s and 3 p are used .and the hybridisation is sp3.
