What is Hypnosis?

Updated on May 5, 2018


Take this seriously reader. This is a powerful tool and should be used responsibly and never without the use of commons sense. Be advised this information is for self study and entertainment purposes. The writer of this article takes no responsibility for the actions of it's readers nor does


What is hypnosis? Is it a mystical magic spell that allows one to control another person's thoughts and actions? Or are the people pretending and just going along with what the other person or people in the room are expecting to see? Hypnosis is a tool humans have been using since we learned language and communication. Hypnosis is a way to hack the human brain into letting down the filters we place in our minds to protect ourselves.

When used in therapeutic medical industries it has been shown that hypnotic states can be very powerful, even surgeries have been done without the use of anesthetic .

We all daydream and let ourselves get sucked deeply into an activity and become unaware of our immediate surroundings. This is called a trance state. A point of focus so intense you are no longer in touch with the outside world. In a trance state you are in a state of hypnosis. Though light in state it is a natural thing for us all to experience in life.

Being hypnotized is not like waking up from deep sleep. It is a very normal state and your body and mind transition into normal activity as soon as the person under trance is released. The mind is just reacting to suggestion and focus. By bypassing the normal mental filters in our minds the hypnotist can lead your thinking and affect an outcome based on his or hers instructions. Be it positive in nature or not.

You know the state between sleep and waking... also known as the hypnogogic state. This is where some people experience sleep paralysis and night terrors. The trance state is a lighter form of this state. Awareness is intact but you are so relaxed and open to suggestion that you find no reason to resist the hypnotists suggestions or to even question them.

The Science of Hypnosis

Hypnosis and You

Most people today believe that hypnosis has an air of mystery to it. That it should be left in the hands of the professionally trained medical professionals and psycho-therapists, and even well practiced magicians but the thought of them actually being able to do it themselves seems about as enticing as having a local cashier trying to fly a jet airplane with no training at all. I propose the best way to learn something is to try it out, to see where you have weaknesses and improve them by practicing on friends and family.

Host a party and try it there. When ready hit a friends wedding and offer to try and hypnotize the bride and grooms wedding parties. All it takes is a few hits to spread the word like wild fire and people will begin asking about who you are and how to book you.

Of course if that isn't your goal then just have fun messing around with it. Hypnosis is part of everyday life. Heck most of the day you are hypnotized in some form or fashion. We will day dream or let our minds wander. We space out or we tune in. Our thoughts are either turned inward or focused on some outside stimulus. Watching T.V. or listening to the radio, reading a book, or driving are examples of mild hypnosis.

In the article links below I teach some very powerful techniques used by magicians and stage hypnotists.

      Neck beard... lol. You'd almost be right accept that I am married and am a father of 3. I have hypnotized people and it does work on suggestible people. Not everyone is going to be able to be hypnotized.

      Also one more thing... find something better to do with your time than bash others for their short comings. It makes you look pathetic and worse than those you seek to harm emotionally through your unnecessary commentary.

      I really dont believe hypnosis is real and i also really doubt you have ever hypnotized anyone. You sound and look like a neckbeard. Shit you probably are. Makes sense. You make articles trying to gather women so hopefully you get your once in a life time chance to slay a women in bed. Hoping for a women to fall in love with you. Your article is false knowledge bud. Do something better with your time

      I am really looking forward to trying this. My girlfriend is always stressing, and I'm deciding on either this or rapid induction. Using suggestion to try and ease her tension. Do you have any pointers? I love your pages by the way.
