Hypnosis: The Myths and Facts

 

­When you hear the word hypnosis, you may picture a mysterious figure with a hypnosis-facts-and-mythsswinging watch as portrayed in movies, comic books and television. However, this image couldn’t be further from the truth. Hypnosis has been and is currently used in medical applications, as well as to improve confidence, let go of fears and phobias, lose weight, become a millionaire, improve brainpower, and many more. This article – Hypnosis: The Myths and Facts – discusses some of the most common MYTHS surrounding hypnosis, and the TRUTH behind them.

 

1) Hypnotists have special powers

Nope, although I imagine that newly qualified hypnotists may like to think they do🙂. Hypnotists do not have any special powers. They simply have the knowledge and experience to take you down into a deep state of relaxation, then deliver the right kind of message to your inner mind.

2) Hypnosis only works on weak minded people

It is said that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. So you’re the one doing the work and changing your thought patterns. Therefore it is actually those who can focus and with greater imagination who get the best results from hypnosis. The hypnotist, or hypnosis recording, simply facilitates the process.

hypnosis-facts-and-myths-2

3) During hypnosis, you can be made to do things against your will

No, you can’t be hypnotized into doing something you don’t really want to do. You’re not being controlled by someone else. If a hypnotist tries to tell you to do something that goes against your values, you will reject it and jump out of your trance-like state.

4) You can get stuck in a hypnotic state and never wake up

There has never been a single recorded case of this. The state that you’re in during hypnosis is similar to that of day-dreaming. You’re just very relaxed. You can ‘wake up’ at anytime. Usually that will be at the end of the session, when guided to do so by the hypnotherapist.

5) Hypnosis is an occult and it is against my religion

Hypnosis is a branch of psychology, and has no connection to any religion whatsoever. It is simply a safe and natural method of relaxing your mind, and feeding yourself with positive affirmations and ideas.

HYPNOSIS. The word brings to mind images of old Hollywood movies, in which an ominous man with a swinging watch gets his victims to cluck like a chicken. Do you know, however, that Samuel L. Jackson, Kate Moss, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Oprah have ALL used hypnosis in the past to help change some area of their lives?

Inspire3 (the team that brought you Zen12, Subliminal Guru and Subliminal360) has a collection of hypnosis MP3 audios called Hypnosis Live. Some say that listening to these audios is the best way to reprogram your subconscious mind.

 

Hypnosis and Its UNEXPECTED Benefits

 

Hypnosis works by first inducing (talking) you into a deep state of relaxation – then feeding your mind with positive new ideas that are in line with the change you desire.self-hypnosis-3

Hypnosis was actually approved for use in HOSPITALS since 1958 by the American Medical Association, and almost all modern hospitals now make use of hypnosis to some degree. It has been proven to dramatically reduce migraines, speed up recovery from surgery, reduce the intensity of pain, help overcome drug addiction, relieve chemotherapy symptoms and lower blood pressure, just to name a few.

Hypnosis has also been used by thousands worldwide to improve confidence and self-esteem, let go of fears and phobias, lose weight, stop smoking, improve brainpower, and much more. So, quite different to what you first thought about hypnosis, huh? Here are some of the most common myths surrounding hypnosis, and the truth behind them. 

Anyway, back to this article. A study done by the American Health Magazine found hypnosis to be more effective (93% success rate after just 6 sessions) than other forms of self-change such as behavior therapy (73% after 22 sessions) and psychoanalysis (38% after 600 sessions).

 

More About Hypnosis And Hypnosis Live

 

Hypnosis and hypnotherapy is a scientifically proven method of self-change used by millions of people. Hypnosis has nothing to do with stage hypnotism. Stage hypnotism is simply a performance designed to entertain, while real hypnosis is a potent and accessible tool for dealing with psychological and behavioral problems. It is a state in which the subject is able to relax and welcome suggestions – either during hypnotherapy from a qualified therapist, or through self-hypnosis material. This relaxed state is known as a hypnotic trance and makes you more open to suggestions than you would be under normal circumstances.

self-hypnosis-2

Ellen DeGeneres famously kicked the smoking habit when British hypnotist Paul McKenna hypnotized her, and British pop star Lily Allen confessed in an interview that hypnosis helped her drop four dress sizes. The list of people past and present who turned to hypnosis to help them develop positive habits, overcome limitations or iron out personal problems includes Albert Einstein, Winston Churchill, Kevin Costner, Orlando Bloom, Mozart, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Jack Nicklaus, Jackie Kennedy and David Beckham.

All Hypnosis Live sessions were written and recorded by Julie-Ann Amos, a highly-qualified hypnotherapist hypnosis-live-3and master NLP practitioner. She specializes in conversational hypnosis, and is also a successful author on many self-help topics. The sessions were recorded as MP3 audios, and use a combination of hypnosis and NLP (which stands for Neuro-Linguistic Programming) for the most powerful impact.

All YOU need to do after purchasing is download the MP3 file, hit play, and follow the instructions from the MP3. That’s it.

Each session lasts about 40 minutes, and is incredibly powerful. The session begins by taking you down into a deep, relaxing state. Then, it reprograms your mind using a combination of affirmations, visualizations and special NLP follow-along exercises. The NLP methods subtly reprogram your thinking patterns while you follow simple visualization exercises, and are a perfect complement to hypnosis.

It is possible that you may experience a distortion in time, or FORGET the content of a particular session (happens to me quite often). There are a couple of possibilities here. The first one is that you are falling asleep while listening to the audio. However, it has been discovered by several research groups that our hearing is on 24/7 – taking in information constantly. It stays alert to protect us and our offspring. If a mother is asleep and hears her baby cry, she will awaken immediately. If someone breaks into your home while you are asleep, you will be alerted as soon as you hear a noise. So even if you fall asleep during the session, your brain is still recording all of the information in your subconscious mind.

The other possibility is that you are going so deeply into hypnosis that you are having an amnesic experience and simply not remembering the session, even though you are conscious throughout it. This is actually pretty common with really good hypnotic subjects. Harry Arons developed a six level scale of hypnotic depth, and he used to teach that the first three levels are memory retaining, but the last three levels are amnesic. One simple way to assess that would be to examine how the sessions end for you. Are you waking up when the recording ends? Or are you waking up hours later, having transitioned to sleep during the recording and then continued to sleep for long after the recording ends?

So don’t worry – this is all part of the normal hypnosis experience, and you will have gained precisely what you need from that particular session. 

And you can do it all from the comfort of your own home, and listen as many times as you like, at a fraction of the cost of a single session with a qualified hypnotherapist.

Unlock Your Quantum Powers

unlock-your-quantum-powers

Dr. Jean Houston, former advisor to President Bill Clinton and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, will be conducting a “new, leading-edge” 7-week Unlock Your Quantum Powers online course beginning on Wednesday, February 11.

According to Jean, there are 5 QUANTUM POWERS within us that, when unlocked, will allow us to become truly and fully alive. You will have access to a tremendous supply of power, energy and joy, with the creative power of the entire Universe at your fingertips…

Over the past ten years, she has worked to develop a process for training others to fully master all 5 of these Quantum Powers, and Dr. Jean Houston is now ready to share that process with us…

Update: This post was written one year ago. This year, the course will start on Wednesday, February 10th. It may be possible to register after the deadline as all the materials are available online. The link is still the same, so read on for more information.

 

Promises, Promises…

 

Jean recently held a free global online seminar where she introduced her 7-week training program to the world. So you can hear for yourself what she has to say about this program. And she can probably explain her own program much better than me🙂. You can access the replay of the webinar here.
The replay will only be available for a limited time.

Below is the syllabus for the 7-week online course:

Week 1: How the Universe Really Works (Training Your Attention and Beginning to Unlock Your Quantum Powers)
Week 2: Quantum Power #1 (The Power of Your Quantum Self)
Week 3: Quantum Power #2 (The Power to Orchestrate Time)
Week 4: Quantum Power #3 (The Power of the Quantum Mind)
Week 5: Quantum Power #4 (The Power to Manifest Whatever You Need)
Week 6: Quantum Power #5 (The Power of Quantum Healing and Endless Energy)
Week 7: Your Unique Genius (Integrating Your Quantum Powers into Your Life)

At the end of the 7 weeks of this training program, we’re promised that a ‘mythic’ life awaits us. That we’ll not only be able to accomplish all the things we’ve always wished we could, but countless others we haven’t even dreamed of yet.

For more details, or to be part of the first second small group of individuals to go through this training with Jean, click here.

 

See you on the other side!!

 

I can’t tell you now how good this thing is, because I’ve yet to go through the course myself. But listening to Jean’s recent global webinar, and subsequently doing a bit of research on this course, is inspiring to say the least. From the outside, this seems like something that could take me (and you) to the next level. I have registered myself and paid for it (this course has a 30-day, no-questions asked, money-back guarantee), and generally feeling pretty excited about all this. If you’re interested in joining me, then click here.

See you there!

P.S. I went through this course with Jean last year and had absolutely no regrets. However, the cheapest option for this course is $397. If you feel that this is too pricey, yet is deeply interested to find a mentor who could guide you to the next level, then read my overview of Bob Proctor’s Six Minutes to Success program.

 

 

That’s all from me today. Share this post with others if you have enjoyed or found it to be useful, and if you have any questions or comments in regards to this course just let me know in the comment box below and I WILL get back to you as soon as I can. See you around!

 

 

Conscious vs. Unconscious vs. Subconscious

 

conscious-mind-vs.-subconscious-mind

We all know the conscious mind, right? That’s the part of our mind that ‘thinks’ and reasons. The part that experiences the world through our five senses and controls our voluntary movement. But what about subconscious, and unconscious? I used to think that they are one and the same, but doing some research I found that the two are different. According to Staroversky.com, even experts in the field of psychology struggle with defining the terms, so I decided to have a little discussion on conscious vs. unconscious vs. subconscious mind in this post.

 

The Conscious and Subconscious Mind

 

conscious-mind-vs.-subconscious-mind-4

I’ve also discussed about conscious and subconscious mind in some of my previous posts. As stated above, the conscious mind experiences the world through our senses and controls our voluntary movement. The subconscious mind, meanwhile, stores our memories and controls our involuntary systems. Our conscious mind has the faculty of discrimination as well as the power of reasoning. It is the seat of the will, thus it controls what flows into our subconscious.

“Conscious mind is reasoning will. Subconscious mind is instinctive desire, the result of past reasoning will.”

– Anonymous

All the decisions that we make is based on what our subconscious mind ‘thinks’. Think of your subconscious mind as an army, and the conscious mind as the general. The general determines the strategy and direction of the army, but ultimately it is the collective strength of the army that determines the outcome of the battle. 

So what then is the unconscious mind?

The Unconscious Mind

 

conscious-mind-vs.-subconscious-mind-2

The unconscious that I am referring to is the collective unconscious, or Universal Mind. It is said to be the totality of all minds in existence, and that we are connected to it through our subconscious. The Universal Mind contains all knowledge and is the source of divine communications – the source of dreams, intuition and inspiration.

As a part of this mind, we have the same abilities as the Universal Mind. As we think thoughts of courage, hope, enthusiasm, confidence, trust and faith, we come into harmony with the Universal Mind, and we are then able to tap into the infinite power and limitless creativity of the One.

“I know that all things that ‘work out’ in business are the result of Thought; any fool knows that. Just now, I seem to be short on thoughts and good ideas. But, if this ‘All-Mind’ teaching is correct, it should be possible for the individual to attain a direct connection with Infinite Mind; and in Infinite Mind there must be the possibility of all kinds of good ideas which a man of my courage and experience could put to practical use in the business world, and make a big success thereof. It looks good to me; and I am going to look into it.”

– Anonymous

 

In conclusion I just want to bring to your attention that different experts around the world may have different theories about the divisions of the mind. The complexity of our minds is still being researched by academics and I think it is unlikely that science can fully explain the intricate workings of the mind in this lifetime. Until then we just gotta have faith… 

P.S. When the full power of your conscious, subconscious and unconscious mind is unleashed, you will experience an astonishing transformation and create the life you’ve always been dreaming of. Read about it here.  

And… we’ve come to the end of this post. Please feel free to share this with your friends, and as always if you have any questions or comments just leave them below and I’ll get back to you ASAP. See you around!

Why the Law of Attraction does not work

 is-the-law-of-attraction-real-or-fake

The Law of Attraction. Everything that comes into our lives is by virtue of the images that we’re holding in our mind. Put in simpler terms, what we always think about will appear in our lives as reality. Some people say it is total BS, while others tell of the miraculous results they’ve experienced. So what went wrong for half the room, and why the Law of Attraction does not work for them?

 

Consistency is the K_Y

 

The thing that most people fail to… accept… is that you could not change your is-the-law-of-attraction-real-or-fake-4life around by 15 to 20 minutes of right or correct thinking (or feeling), especially if your subconscious mind has been shaped by years of negative thoughts. Some background – our mind is divided into the conscious and subconscious mind. The conscious mind does all the thinking and reasoning, but it is the subconscious that is running the show and all the decisions that we make is based on what this mind ‘thinks’. Our subconscious has been shaped by years of either positive/negative thoughts and you know what, some academics are now theorizing that the subconscious has been influenced for centuries (!!!!!) by our ancestors and passed down through many generations to us.  

Changing your predominant thoughts and feelings is HARD WORK. It takes discipline and resilience, particularly if you have been a negative person your entire life. To change your life around permanently, you need to have an attitude of gratitude all the time, no matter what circumstances you find yourself in.

It has been three years since I venture into the world of self-help books and products. I used to sweat the small stuff in life, lose my temper easily.. It has been a long and challenging journey, but recently I realized that I am a very different person now compared to who I was three years ago. I have been a negative person for most of my life up to that point. And that caused difficult people and situations to come into my life, making it hard for me to practice love, gratitude and all the other things taught by the self-help teachers.

 

All The Best To You Yeah!!

 

is-the-law-of-attraction-real-or-fake-2

Just a final word before I leave you today. Persist and persist in believing in the Law of Attraction and practicing all that you learn from the books and teachers, and you will finally reach a point where love, gratitude, joy and all that is good becomes second nature to you.

P.S. One person that understands the Law in depth is Bob Proctor. He has studied/taught thinking and the laws of thought for more than 40 years. If you want to learn to use the Law of Attraction to manifest the life you’ve always wanted, then click here.

 

And that’s it from me today.. Please share if you’ve enjoyed this:). Thanks for sticking with me, and if you have any questions or comments regarding the Law of Attraction, please leave them below and I’ll get back to you ASAP. 

 

The Secret Book Series

 

the-secret-book-series

If you are in any way a fan of self-help books and products then you must have heard of The Secret Book Series by Rhonda Byrne. They have become a global phenomenon since The Secret film and book publication in 2006. This series of books are an excellent starting point for beginner self-help book readers, but they are also suitable for advanced self-help practitioners whether as a different way of looking at things or simply as a timely reminder to always think and feel positive.

 

The Secret

The Power

If you have read The Secret, then you should find the content in The Power to be very similar. The focus in The Power, however, is on feeling good feelings rather than thinking good thoughts. The premise is that just seeing the outcome you want isn’t enough, you have to feel the way you would once your wish has manifested.

A Great Mystery of Life

 

This book starts off with a mystifying and seemingly unjust passage from the Gospel of Matthew in the Holy Scriptures:

“Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what he has will be taken from him.”

And if you look around isn’t that what’s happening in the world today? The poor seem to become poorer, and the rich just get richer every day. Now the author’s theory is that there is a hidden word in the passage above that will clear up any confusion and misunderstanding once and for all…

The hidden word is gratitude:

“Whoever has gratitude will be given more, and he or she will have an abundance. Whoever does not have gratitude, even what he or she has will be taken from him or her.”

GRATITUDE is the ATTITUDE.

 

SATURATE your Cells with Gratitude

 

There is a statement made by Rhonda in the book that I agree with utterly. Saying thank you on the odd occasion does NOT make one a grateful person. To change your life permanently, you must make gratitude your way of life, and one of the ways to achieve that is to practice intense gratitude over consecutive days. 

This book is basically a 28-day program with the objective of impregnating your cells and your subconscious mind with gratitude. Each day there is a topic to read, and a few simple tasks to perform.

magic-rhonda-byrne-reviews-3

In the first 12 practices, you would learn to be grateful for what you have now, as well as what you have received in the past. The next 10 practices were designed to specifically help you make your dreams come true, or dramatically improve the circumstances of your life. In the last six practices, you will be saturating gratitude into every cell of your body and mind, even learn how to use the power of gratitude to help other people. And within each of the topic to be read you will understand more and more about how life works.

The author did not say why this program runs for specifically 28 days, but in feng shui 28 is known as a ‘Sum of Ten’ number (2 and 8 added together makes 10). Ten is a number of completion, bringing what you desire to fruition 🙂.

 

You can get it for $9.44 onwards at Amazon

 

Amazon is probably the cheapest place to get this book. The last I checked, the paperback edition is $9.44 and the Kindle is $9.99. They also have used books which will be cheaper of course. And by the way, Amazon provides a free Kindle reading app.

 

Bring The Magic Into Your Life

 

You may or may not become a millionaire by reading this book, but if you follow the 28 gratitude practices consecutively then at the very least you should undergo a personal transformation. You would go from sweating the small stuff in your life, like getting annoyed when the food you ordered takes some time to arrive, to thinking more and more about the bigger picture and appreciating the wonders of the world. 

Some of the practices may leave you with a depth of peace and happiness that you have never felt before, and that to me should be your goal when doing these exercises. The physical manifestations are really just bonuses. And after all it is when you do not need the money and relationship and fame that they come to you effortlessly.

The Power of Feelings

 

This is the follow-up to the groundbreaking bestseller The Secret (you can read my review here) by Rhonda Byrne. In The Secret, Rhonda (and various other teachers) introduced the Law of Attraction – everything that comes into your life is by virtue of the images that you’re holding in your mind. I cannot help but think that the content in The Power is the same, but with the focus on feeling good feelings rather than thinking good thoughts.

Just seeing the outcome you want isn’t enough, you have to feel the way you would once your wish has manifested. If the act of visualizing your desire brings up more feelings of anxiety and frustration (of not having it) than it does of joy and bliss, then it is not going to happen.

According to the author, LOVE is the greatest emotion one could have. Other positive feelings include Gratitude, Joy, Passion, Excitement, Enthusiasm, Hope and Satisfaction. Examples of bad feelings are fear, despair, guilt, envy, hate, anger, criticism, worry, disappointment, irritation and even boredom!

Where The Secret is filled with the opinions and personal experiences of many practitioners of the Law of Attraction, The Power is mainly written from the viewpoint of Rhonda.

power-rhonda-byrne-review-3

Just like The Secret, this book provides practical tips, advices and steps/processes on how to apply the power of feelings to have an amazing life. The book then focuses on each key area of our lives, that is, Money, Health, Relationships, etc.

It’s $15.99 onwards at Amazon

 

Amazon is the cheapest place that I know of to get this book. The last time I checked, it was $15.99 for the Kindle edition (Amazon provides a free Kindle reading app), $16.76 for the hardcover, $17.95 for the audiobook download and $21.61 for the audio CD. They also have used books and those will be cheaper.

A GREAT starting point for beginner self-help book readers

 

Just like The Secret, this book is an excellent introduction to the world of self-advancement. You do not need any prior knowledge to understand the content inside. If you are feeling down or depressed in your life for certain reasons, this book will make you feel better.

If you have read The Secret, then you should find the content in the two books to be very similar. You could still read it to feel good, or use it as a timely reminder for yourself to always think/feel positively. And sometimes it’s good to have things explained in a different way. But like I said in my review of The Secret, if your mind has been shaped by years of negative thoughts, then it could be difficult for you now to think the ‘right’ things consistently. If you’ve spent years building up negative conditions in your life as a result of negative thoughts and feelings, then you should not expect to see your entire life turn around through 15 to 30 minutes of the right thinking/feeling. To revamp your innermost thoughts and feelings use this tool.

So, what is The Secret??

 

The secret is the Law of Attraction. If you’re a regular reader of self-help books, then you’ve probably come across this concept/notion somewhere before. What we always think about will appear in our lives. THOUGHTS become THINGS, as Mike Dooley (author and international speaker) said.

After introducing the Law of Attraction, the book goes on to provide practical tips, advices and steps/processes on how to apply it in our daily lives, to get what we want. And throughout the book, various practitioners of The Secret, including Rhonda, share their personal experiences with the Law of Attraction and how they made it work for them. The book then zooms in on how to use the Law to improve each key area of our lives – Money, Health, Relationships, etc.

Why it doesn’t work for me?

 

I read The Secret (it was my first self-help book) a few years back. It helped me through a very trying time and for that I wilthe-secret-book-by-rhonda-byrne-review-2l always reserve a special place in my heart for this book. That said, the Law of Attraction divides a room. Half of it will tell you about the amazing results they’ve experienced, while the other either calls it a bunch of baloney or has given up on it.

My personal opinion – The Secret is Real. Our mind is divided into the conscious and subconscious mind. Our conscious mind does all the thinking and reasoning, but it is our subconscious mind that is running the show and making all the decisions for us. This mind has been shaped by years of either positive or negative thoughts, and some theorists are now saying that the subconscious has been influenced for CENTURIES by our ancestors and passed on through many generations, to us!!

Some people spent years building up negative conditions as the result of negative thoughts, then expect to see their entire lives change through 15 or 20 minutes of right thinking. That is why many people fail when it comes to the Law of Attraction.

If your mind has been shaped by years of negative thoughts, then it would be hard for you to CONSISTENTLY think the right thoughts. To be grateful ALL THE TIME. This book does not specifically guide you in this. To reprogram your thoughts and habits I would recommend this tool instead.

It’s only $4.33 (onwards) at Amazon

 

You can get this book at Amazon, or at any of the bookstores near you. Last I checked, the price is $4.33 for the paperback edition, $6.99 for the Kindle, $13.53 for hardcover and $17.95 for the audiobook download. And really, I think it’s a small price to pay for what you will gain from reading this book. Secondhand books will be cheaper still. And by the way, Amazon provides a free Kindle reading app if that’s your preference.

An excellent introduction into the world of Self Improvement

If you are just stepping into the world of self-help, then I would recommend this book to you. You do not need any prior knowledge to get what’s written inside this book. It’s easy to understand, you’d feel good reading it, and it’d probably motivate you to explore other books of this topic.

Advanced self-help book readers may have come across this topic before in one of their many readings, and find the content inside this book to be nothing new (in which case, feel free to check out my review of the tool I mentioned above).

I hope you’ve enjoyed this review (please feel free to share if you do!), and if you have any questions or comments do leave them below and I will get back to you ASAP. See you around, then!
