Are There Different Types Of Hypnosis?

June 04, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 157

I belong to a writing club. People enjoy writing short stories, poems, even novels and scripts. It's an extremely happy atmosphere with some thoroughly nice, pleasant people.

One particular lady, knowing of my interest in hypnosis, set this extraordinary type of video up for me. It's only a small one, but it's the picture of a man's face with only one eye. Hanging down on either side of his face, are two steel balls which swing. As you're looking at the picture, the right ball hits the right side of his face and sends the eyeball across to the other side. Then the left ball hits the left side of his face, and the eyeball moves back to the right, and so on.

Look at this for any length of time, and you're well into a trance.

Are there different types of hypnosis? No. Hypnosis is hypnosis. However, there are many different ways of eliciting the trance. I've often wondered just how many there are. If you had the time and the inclination, you could go through the whole Web and count them all. Everyone seems to have his or her own ideas.

We've been through old Svengali and his swinging watch, although I personally prefer a pendulum or a metronome. The latter is particularly useful, because you can speed it up or down.

Then there's the dot on the ceiling. You concentrate on this and gradually you find that your unconscious mind takes over.

One of the ways our ancestors induced trance was by the sound of a drum. Not necessarily a single beat, but it had to be repetitious. I don't recommend you try your recording of Gene Krupa for this one!

Drums have been used by peoples all over the World, of course. The American Indians, African tribes, the tribes in the Amazon forest. You name it. That, and of course gazing into a large fire helps, as well.

Another method I use for relaxation, is to let my imagination wander to some form of magic carpet. Then I think about a place of particular scenic beauty, and imagine myself flying over this place. This works very well for me, but to each his own.

But for what are you aiming? Purely relaxation? You may like to try my method, but if you're determined to be a brilliant concert pianist, then the method of focusing on a stage and gradually assuming the persona of the maestro is an excellent way of instilling into your unconscious mind your desire.

But you must desperately want to do it. Nothing will be achieved if you wake up one morning and think; I'd like to be a dance band trumpeter. Perhaps for a few evenings, you dutifully sit in your chair and 'focus', but it won't last.

You need to be a painter, sculptor, musician with all your heart and soul. Nothing whatever should get in your way.

Then, hypnosis will give you a very good chance.
