Hypnosis For Self - Development

Date Added: January 26, 2010 01:56:28 AM

You think about hypnotism and immediately your imagination conjures up visions of stage magic where the illusionist puts a girl to sleep and makes her float like fine feather with no visible support. She is literally asleep hanging in the clouds. You are focused on several things like the invisible wires, the invisible pole arm, the fine act of the girl pretending as though in deep slumber and you are wondering if she's afraid the act might not turn out right and she falls hard on the floor and breaks her shoulder blades, and so on. And of course what's with this magician guy, does he cast some real spell or what?

There is someone who's  from Australia, a successful professional and businessman who started out as a stage hypnotist.  He recalls that a volunteer from the audience had himself hypnotized into thinking that a massive wall separated him from the rest of the audience  with the wall situated on the stage in front of him.  The hypnotist describes the volunteer as having had fits of incapacity and frustration because he simply couldn't come down from the stage and back to the audience. He seemed not to be able to get past the barrier that he thought had been massively installed in front of him.

What is implied in this example is the relatively unknown fact that hypnotism isn't something that has to do with vampires and werewolves. It is in fact a phenomenon that basically involves our lives as human beings but is not generally understood or accepted for what it really is, because we choose to think in terms of what it is not. We don't usually associate hypnotism with anything else except entertainment and especially stage magic.

And yet, hypnotism is gradually finding acceptance in a variety of human activity such as anesthetics in medicine  and crime detection in police work, among others.

What actually separates hypnotism from all other activity in the spectrum of human behavior is the fact that it involves the use of the subconscious mind.  You don't normally use hypnotism to smoke a cigar or read the newspaper or watch TV. In these area of human conduct our minds operate on the conscious or beta frequency of the human brain, which is the day-to-day awareness that we experience as we go about our normal business.

If we closely hew to our premise that the subconscious mind isn't just within us but even extends outside of us and if we affirm to ourselves that this "other" mind (to distinguish from the day-to-day mind) is all-pervading and responsible for all the autonomous functions of existence whether it is providing the pattern for the growth of a tree or directing the circulatory and metabolic functions of our bodily organs or seeing that the moon doesn't collide with the earth tomorrow morning, then we will understand how hypnotism works.

It may be good to know that hypnotism works, always did, and is available to those who are inclined.  Already the time has actually arrived and people  no longer hesitate to experiment with what to some may still be unknown territory such as hypnotism.
