The Different Induction

There exist many induction techniques to get people into a hypnotic state. It ranges from techniques that involves the eyes, the head, the hand, the posture, the muscles, the breathing, the arms and so on.

These techniques uses the relaxation of the mind and body or the use of words to put the person into state eg. the word sleepy, drowsy, dizzy etc.

Whether an induction is a fast one (ie it takes seconds) or a long one that takes 20 minutes or so, it revolves around mind/body and words.

Natural Hypnosis

Natural Hypnosis refers to hypnosis that occurs naturally without the inducement of a hypnotist. Eg when you are absorbed while reading a favourite book.

How frequent does it occur? The answer is very often. But the frequency also depends on individual and surrounding factors.

If a person does not sleep well or is in constant fatigue, then he may enter into hypnosis easily. It also does not matter the time of the day, for hypnosis can happen at any time.

Memory

Our memory is deeply seated in the subconscious mind.

When we recall a memory, it automatically plays out as per the subconscious way of responding based on the data of experience and events stored.

Since it is a response that does not require conscious thinking, it is a form of hypnosis.

Cold Reading

Cold reading is about reading the mind of people you are not familiar with or a total stranger.

This skill is especially important for hypnotist in covert hypnosis.

Covert hypnosis is about having conversation with people in a way that he is talking directly to their subconscious mind. For instance in street hypnosis, a hypnotist would approach any street guy and starts a conversation.

He would then use his cold reading skill to find out more about that person. In other words, he asks questions that point him the direction of what the stranger’s thoughts are.

Question like “You like brown colour, right?” – this question is not asked in order to have the right answer but merely to prompt that person to give the right answer. In this case, he would reply either Yes or tells the hypnotist the colour he actually likes. If he says that he likes green, then the hypnotist would focus on something that is green in colour to “suit his taste”, things like grassland.

Of course one question cannot reveal much about the person.  More questions have to be asked for the hypnotist to better know about her. 

And this is nothing new. We ask question when we want to get to know a certain person.

About Altered States

Altered states are states other than the conscious or beta state. States like Alpha, Theta and Delta are altered state of consciousness.

The methods used for these states include hypnosis, alpha programming, meditation and sleep programming.

It is said that programming done in these states are 100 times more powerful than at conscious level programming.

Switch On The Mind Power

Have you use electricity before? Sure you have! In order to use it, do you undergo training, take up courses or read tons of books? Definitely no!

All you have to do is know when and what to use. The “when” refers to the time you want to use it eg when you wake up you switch it on in order to see clearly. The “what” refers to the type of electricity you want ie. to use for boiling water, switch on TV or turn on the lamp.

Our mind is akin to electricity. We do not need to know how it actually works in order to use it. What we need to do is know the “what” – what method to use to turn on the mind power. The “when” is about the day/time you want to use it.

If you are using hypnosis as a method to switch on your mind power, then that is the “what”.
