Greetings. I would like to re-program the subconcious aspect of my mind so I can have more control and focus in what I do. The most effective method I could think of was self-hypnosis. Please give me accounts of self-hypnosis so I can see if I was right about it being an effective method, and also [if possible] refer me to sites/books/give me instructions on how to perform self hypnosis. I think this will be a good way to become who I want to be and do what I aspire to do.

I would suggest googling for NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and see if that floats your boat.

My advice is just to be yourself to find the real you as I can see you very clearly.....and never ask for anyones elses help to do this again without looking inside yourself first! Age dosen't matter didly squat, as we are all far too young to reason and much too old to dream?

This is the first time I have seen this thread and it amazes me that it has had so few responses. How come, I wonder?

Fotia, if you are still around, feel free to check my site http://www.flfcanada.com where I am wriiting quite a bit about hypnosis--yes, I have been qualified in the art since the 1960's. I highly recommend the methods advocated by the late Dr. Milton Erickson, one of the originators of NLP, and a spiritually-rooted psychiatrist.

Basically speaking, self-hypnosis is really the art of talking to oneself--that is, being able to carry on a moral, ethical and rational kind of internal dialogue. Sounds simple, but there are pitfalls, which, thank G-d, can be avoided if we are willing to take the time develop a basic understanding of our human nature--that is, the physical, mental and spiritual components of ouor human nature.

I very much clicked with the lattermost paragraph (this now being about a year and 9 months since my post, much has changed within me). I notice the amount of my inner dialogue has increased a lot, and I notice this inner dialogue is sometimes at a climax during sleep.
I guess self hypnosis just includes a lot of affirmation of the self's inclinations.
I'll be reading your link soon and possibly mention in here what catches my attention.

=========================

Keep in mind that the following is a revision of the first post I made to Fotia.

Fotia, if you are still around, feel free to check my site http://www.flfcanada.com where I am writing quite a bit about hypnosis--yes, I have been qualified in the art since the 1960's. By the way, I highly recommend the methods advocated by the late Dr. Milton Erickson, one of the originators of NLP. He was a spiritually-rooted psychiatrist.

WHAT IS SELF-HYPNOSIS?
Basically speaking, self-hypnosis is really the art of talking to oneself--that is, being able to carry on a moral, ethical and rational kind of internal dialogue. I call it PNEUMATHERAPY--healing the self, not hypnotherapy. Check out PNEUMATOLOGY--the study of the spirit--in a good dictionary and encyclopedia.

The term 'hypnosis', which comes from the Greek for sleep is, in my opinion, a misnomer. The goal, it seems to me, is not to have people fall asleep, it is to have them wake up, to become truly conscious of the power of the human spirit, the pneuma effect. Jesus, in the Gospel of John, chapter 3, Jesus speaks to Nicodemus and tells him how important it is to be "born of the Pneuma (Spirit). In chapter 4, he says to the Samaritan woman: "God is Spirit (Pneuma).
============================
Sounds simple? However, there are pitfalls, which, thank G-D, can be avoided if we are willing to take the time to develop a basic understanding of our human nature. That is, we need to understand that we are a complex combination of the physical, mental and spiritual components of our human nature. By taking the time to learn the art of willing good--loving, self, others and our universe--we can master integrating these three components.


Just a few minutes ago--as I write this, it is now about 9:30 PM, Toronto time, Wednesday, February 1, 2006--I was led to this section of this forum which I have not visited for some time. I noticed the following:

I like a quote I heard recently. It goes like this: "Youth often make the mistake of thinking that intelligence is more important than experience. Old timers make the mistake of thinking that experience is more important than intelligence."

May I add: Intelligence and experience will both serve to help us reach our goal, and, meanwhile, have the wisdom to enjoy the journey, when we use our imaginations under the guidance of the highest good, love.

Flex, et al: I (Lindsay, using my sons's 'puter) am including this quote from SELF-HYPNOSIS--help a teen, because the kind of internal dialogue we have with ourselves very much affacts how we relate to others, personally. Self-hypnosis is all about what we say to ourselves.

Sigh*

Okay since no one else seems to be helping you and since ive done about 500 hours of self-hypnosis, I am fairly well versed in the subject. Okay, need to know a couple of things

#1 Is this your first time being hypnotised?

#2 Give me examples of what commands and changes you want to make.

#3 Do you have a tape recorder or microphone on your computer?

Answer these three things and I will type up a script for you with instructions on what to do ect.

Ive done levels of hypnosis most people dont even know exist, like DHI and Hypnotically Induced Visual Hallucinations. Sub-conscious programming is a breeze to do, you will find the more you do self hypnosis, the easier it becomes. I would say the most useful programming is overcoming fears and forgetting past faliures, with those two things properly used - the results are quite phenominal.

NLP is OKAY, but it is washed down hypnosis at best, NLP is more pre-hypnosis than hypnosis. It prepares the subject and is used to examine the way they think - basically get inside their head. A very good book that does not use hypnosis is Psycho-Cybernetics by Maxwell Maltz, its like ten bucks brand new and has been used by Olympic Athletes for decades.

If your looking to read about hypnosis, dont waste your time on those hypnosis for dummies, ect. Go to the University Library and read anything by Milton Erickson.

Whatever, answer the questions and il get a script written up for you. Im a bit busy and havent been online so it might be a day or two.

Max, interestingly, I met Maxwell Maltz, years ago, when he made a visit to Toronto. Naturally, I have his books and his wonderful taped course for children, which, IMO, should be used in all our schools.

I also have Jay Hayley's, SELECTED PAPERS OF Milton Erickson. I don't think ME, actually, ever wrote a book.

BTW, have you heard of CLINICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL HYPNOSIS (1974) by W.S. Kroger?--The book, a very large and detailed volume, is the result of 30 years work in the field.

Kroger puts a lot of emphasis on the value of faith and spirituality as aids to inducing hypnosis. He points out that science-oriented clergy, especially ones with some psychological--and I would add, pneumatological--insight and training, can make good hypnotists, because people already tend to have faith in them.

By profession, Dr. Kroger was a gynecologist, in Chicago.

FOR THE RELIEF OF PAIN AND STRESS.
Just today, I had an opportunity to make practical use of what I call pneumatherapy--hypnosis without the hocus pocus--on my 15 year old granddaughter. Yesterday afternoon, she had all her wisdom teeth extracted. This morning, my son daughter-in-law asked me to help her get over it as she was having a lot of pain.

This morning, she was under a great deal of pain, with swelling in the jaw and neck. Only able to take liquids, she was also under a great deal of stress. I got to her house about 10:00 AM, I did one session with her, which took about twenty minutes. Following this, she had three periods of solid sleep, which I suggested she would.

This evening, she ate a full meal, at the supper hour. With the swelling gone, she has been comfortable, since then. Over the last while, she has been watching her favourite sit coms.

THE TECHNIQUE I USED around 10:30 AM
As she and others in the family already know about the nature and function of pneumatherapy, without much ado, I was able to go right ahead and use my favourite technique--colours:

All the colours are useful, but I usually begin with the primary colours--Red as metaphor of the soma component, or body; yellow, as a metaphor for the psyche, or mind, and blue as a metaphor for the spirit, or pneuma. In conjunction with the colours I used deep breathing.

Sometimes I use bright coloured cards.

However. based on an experiment I did on myself, recently--which I demonstrated to my GD, today--this time I used an incandescent light.

I told her: This is what works for me: With my eyes closed, gently, I hold a 40 watt light bulb--turned on, of course, close to my closed eyes.

The warm light passing through my eye lids make it appear that my brain is filled with the colour red, especially if I hold it close. Depending on where I focus the light--straight on, below, above, to the side, and how tightly I close my eyes, I can see, not just the primary colours, but all the colours of the rainbow. I am at the point where it seems I can see pixels.

The lamp I used, today, also has a rheostat on it. I found that colours will change depending on the brightness, or dimness, of the light. Moving it around in a circle, slow and/or fast, creates kaleidoscope effect.

When I gave my granddaughter the lamp to hold, it didn't take long for her to get the same effect I did. This also had the positive results of helping her feel that she was not just a subject, but and active participant in her own healing.

RED--physicality
As she held the lamp, I asked her: Can you see the red colour?

When she responded, yes, I said: Red, as I understand it, is the symbol for physical energy, strength and power--I call it the somatological factor--and this colour, filling the brain and radiating to your heart and lungs and throughout you whole circulatory system--veins and arteries-- will, automatically, help you to breathe deeply and evenly.

This will, automatically, increase the ability of your lungs, in cooperation with you heart, to absorb more and more life-giving and healing oxygen which will go, especially, to the area of your body needing healing. And you know where that area is. [I gave her time to let this sink in]

I told her: Because I know you love playing soccer, this will help you in the game. I want you to see yourself on the soccer-field. [I paused and asked her to confirm to me that this was happening]

Your oxygen-rich blood-stream is naturally making you strong all over. This will help you be a stronger and faster soccer player. As I count you are going to have three minutes of exciting play and you will breathe deeper and deeper. Start by breathing taking in a gentle breath....Now, breath out, out, out, out, as far as you can...until you really want to take a deep breath. Now you are ready for some exciting play: One minute--I paused--Two minutes--paused--Three minutes--paused. [Look, you scored! Just listen to the cheers!!!]

Now, pause, walk off the field. It is time for you to take a rest on the bench.

YELLOW--mentality
As you rest, pay attention to the light you used for the first exercise. This time, hold the light so that you can see the colour, yellow. Yellow is the symbol for information, knowledge, mental alertness and acuity. I call yellow the symbol for the psychological component. Your whole brain area is filled with light.
[Take time to let this sink in.]

This light, now filling your brain, is radiating throughout your whole nervous system. This just being aware of where you are and what is going on around you will also help you be a better soccer player. But it will also make you a better listener and a better student. The light will help you focus your attention on what you read, listen to your teachers and learn the things you need to know. Real knowledge will lead you to wisdom--the right use of knowledge.
[Meditate on this for a moment]

Now take yourself to a place where you can be by yourself and you are getting ready to have a good rest, even go into a deep sleep. It can be your room, a spot by a lake, or the ocean.

[I paused and gave her the opportunity to choose. She chose her room.]

Now look at the light, once more, close-up and with eyes closed. But this time, close your eyes tight. As I take the light away from you, what colour do you see? She responded: I see several kinds of blues, purples and even a blackness.

BLUE--spirituality
Then I said, relax, as deeply as you want to. Now let yourself be aware of yourself, your unique self. [I gave her time to think on this.]

I told her that, in my opinion, blue is the symbol of what I call the pneumatological, or spiritual component--that in which we all live and move as self-aware, or spiritual, beings. [Again I paused to give her time to think what this means to her.]

How do you feel? "I want to go to sleep..." she said, I told her that she would have a really deep and healing sleep. She slept all afternoon.

By the way, the session took place at her home. Later, her grandmother and I took her to our home where her grandmother prepared her supper.

I think everyone went to bed about an hour or so ago, while I finished this writing.

Keep in mind IIE: The fact that we now have the PC so readily available for all to use certainly increases our ability to do much good for one another. It is for sure that if we fail to use it for good, it will be used for evil.

Edmund Burke, 1729-1797
The British statesman and philosopher, Edmund Burke, was born in Dublin, January 12, educated at a Quaker boarding school and at Trinity College, Dublin put it this way: "When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle." Also: "All that evil needs to succeed, in the world, is for good people to do nothing."

Thank you, although I'm not sure if that had any relevance whatsoever. Excluding possibly that today is the 12th..would you mind clarifying the reason behind this post?

IIE, ABOUT THE ART OF HYPNOSIS
Perhaps I should have prefaced what I wrote with the following: Hypnosis is art that, like all the arts, including the art of writing, can be used for good or evil.

Many people, no doubt because they choose to be eternally ignorant, fear hynosis of any kind. They equate it with brainwashing of the worst kind and miss how valuable it can be when used morally and ethically by people skilled in the art. I have heard religious leaders--probably unaware that they are using the very art they condemn--judge it as nothing more than a tool of the devil.

Because of this, many people, who could benefit from the positive use of the art of hypnosis fail to do so. They miss how simple it is to learn the technique; that it is ubiquitous, anyway, and easy to do.

Ironically, all leaders are hypnotists by default: Parents, teachers, clergy, political and other authority figures, under the guise of education, constantly hypnotise those willing to listen to them, from the cardle to the grave.

Having said this, my plea is: Let those of us who know something about this art be ready and willing to help any willing to listen and learn. And let us not fear to do it, in the open.

Here is a good place to start:
http://www.danielolson.com/hypnosis/hypnosis_history.html
Notice the connection between the art of hypnosis and the art of religion--perhaps the oldest human art.

What! Do you understand what consequences mankind may face in case if those “knowledge” get spread among people?!

Some people use the technique in card games, some illusionists use similar tricks to fool people, some groups, spy agencies and secret societies use the technique to control politicians and lead wars, some use the technique to advertise products using it as a tool in aggressive marketing. So now what you suggest? The technique is a weapon. You suggest to spread weapons?

Any form of change techniques, whether hypnosis or not, require a extensive and knowlegable body behind them. Writting scripts is not so much a formula as it is a individual approach to tackle specific goals for each person.

Milton Erickson also felt hypnosis was incredibly powerful and should be banned from the grasp of the general public.

In self-hypnosis, time is especially required for the beginner, 30 minutes is a resonable time to expect - each person is diffrent though and some first time subjects take 5 minutes, others take an hour.

Hypnotism is just one of many powerful techniques to change a person. Hypnosis is fairly average at its most basic level, however when one has an experienced subject and knows a great deal about hypnosis, the results are spectacular.

Enki your mislabelling hypnosis with other things like subliminal advertising.

I strongly suspect that Enki is being a bit facetious. I would be very surprised if he expects us to take his flurry of sarcasm seriously. smile.gif If you are serious Enki, make your case and let's dialogue.

By the way, until the 1980's, in the province of Ontario, it was illegal for anyone, except MDs to use hypnosis. It didn't matter how much, if any, psychological, or pneumatological understanding MD's had, they were attomatically qualified, while those really skilled in the art were forbidden.

A group of us got busy and called for a public inquiry as to whether or not the law really served the public good. The result was that things got changed--IMO, for the better--and the old law, which had been concocted by a certain power-seeking few who had their own agenda, was scrapped. Most medical doctors supported the findings of inquiry.

Thank you Maximus242 for quoting Milton Erickson, his warning is apt to place.

And even such a humble man as I not well unaware of so many arts discern subliminal advertising of hypnosis and understand the difference quite well, I guess, hope so.

Really, indeed, who is wise enough to take words of an Enki seriously, I do wonder.
How could I imagine that members of such a prominent World Meditating Community hardly can take serious the flurry of sarcasm of such a secondary creature like me.

But if to speak seriously, I am ready to dialogue and argue over this important topic. I am strongly convinced that the technique must not be spread and popularized among men! Only few, with high moral values should be admitted to such knowledge (if such exist as organized science).

Let me quote a passage from Lord Bacon’s New Atlantis, I think it will be a nice beginning of our dialog:
“But we do hate all impostures and lies, insomuch as we have severely forbidden it to all our fellows, under pain of ignominy and fines, that they do not show any natural work or thing adorned or swelling, but only pure as it is, and without all affectation of strangeness.
These are, my son, the riches of Salomon's House.”

Now Mr. Lindsay, be so kind, explain to me this statement of yours “Having said this, my plea is: Let those of us who know something about this art be ready and willing to help any willing to listen and learn. And let us not fear to do it, in the open.”

Why people should know that? You very well, as far as I guess, know that it can be used as a weapon. Do you suggest to spread weapons?

And what about non-proliferation treaties?

You know, God dislikes when human Freedom of Will is questioned. The spreading of knowledge which facilitate one group of people to question Freedom of Will of the other group of people should be considered very negatively by the God. Don't you think so? Don't you think that those who know, should apply some kind of self-censorship?

Harmoniously develop human beings should have freedom of choice. If the number of people able to use sophisticated hypnosis techniques will increase in the world, then there will be great problems with the Freedom of Will worldwide.

E.g. Mr. Hitler and Comrade Stalin were of those who must not be admitted to such knowledge, but unfortunately that happened and the consequences were very dramatic. Besides, definitely, the perpetrators in Hamburg who organized 9/11, definitely had used quite sophisticated techniques to incline those Arab boys to commit that madness and crush the Two Towers and rush into Pentagon. It is not recommended to play with the Ring of the Power. Don't you think so?

Max, you write:
QUOTE
Milton Erickson also felt hypnosis was incredibly powerful and should be banned from the grasp of the general public.
I am not doubting you, but do you have the source for this quote? I would love to know the context in which this was said.

It amazes me to hear this. If it is true that he actually thought that this was a wise thing to do, it amazes me to hear that a man as wise a Erickson thought that it is okay to ban the spreading of such useful information.

Also, I am amazed to think that he even thought it possible. Perhaps it could be done under Nazism, Communism, and Islamism; but surely not in "land of the free and the home of the brave" and the land of your Canadian cousins. Can you imagine the uproar there would have been had the originators of the Internet tried to push through a law banning the use of the PC except by a special and elite few at the top?

If ME really meant what you say he said, why would his papers give detailed instructions as to how to do Ericksonian hypnosis.

By they way, as I read ME, he was more of an advocate of what I call pneumatherapy--the use of an hypnotic technique without the manipulative hocus pocus of stage hypnosis. He refused to use this master/subject model on people who came to him. He saw hypnotherapy as a cooperative and a collaborative process between therapist and the one seeking help. This is made perfectly clear in his paper: DEEP HYPNOSIS AND ITS INDUCTION--general considerations, to which I will refer, later.

Perhaps what really concerned Milton Erickson was the use of hypnosis as a manipulative tool by unscrupulous Svengali types.
===========================================================================
The word svengali refers to a person who completely dominates and controls another, usually for selfish or sinister motives. It is a literary allusion to the character Svengali. He was a musician and a hypnotist in the George du Maurier novel, Trilby--the heroine of the story (1894). The great John Barrymore and Marian Marsh stared in the 1931 movie based on the novel.

IT HAPPENS MORE OFTEN THAN WE IMAGINE
This kind of manipulation goes on all the time. Currently, the North America media is filled with the story of a male youth, Shawn Hornbeck, missing since 2002.

Recently, now 15, he was rescued--he was discovered quite by accident--after being held in captivity, not far from where he was kidnapped. He was forced to live with an older male who used what a psychologist described as "powerful psychological chains"--as effective as physical ropes on those who "believe" in what they are told. He feared for his life if he told anyone that where he was forced to live was not his home. Quite a story, but it shows the power that the words of one can have over the life of another who "chooses", for whatever reason, to believe what he is told.

But internet is a free source Lindsay. Anybody can read it.
I suggest to use ontology complicated enough to shield possible data percolation. How do you look at that suggestion?

The information is already out there a la internet, surely now is a time to share and advise rather than withhold for the fear that the "bad" guys who already have the information, are listening for tips.

For your information quite many things are scattered in a proper way for special purposes. Keys always are scattered. But if a group of smart people will start to collect them in one place the consequences can be very dramatic.

I strongly insist on my point. It is awesome to imagine what will happen if Brain Meta start to attract young Harry Potters!

A young boy not having proper mentor cannot be admitted to such art. It is unwritten rule of intelligent people.

You see Lindsay avoids dialog because he quite well knows that I am right in this particular case. He probably was on high spirit at his birthday and all-encompassing love to all living beings inclined him to promote excessive freedom for all. smile.gif laugh.gif (I am sorry in advance it is a joke)
