What Would A Coma Be Like?

Have you ever thought about that? I have. My mother’s oldest sister died a terrible death. She had worked in a plastics factory where she was exposed to some pretty awful chemicals. It was one of those things that would be hell to prove in court, but the family always figured that those chemicals contributed to her health problems. The doctors did not have a clue what had happened to her.

Her body just got rigid. She could not move anything except her eyes. Couldn’t talk. Couldn’t clean herself. Couldn’t feed herself. Not so much as even lifting a finger. But her eyes moved. She would look at you. It was obvious she knew everything that was going on around her. She was a prisoner in a body that just refused to function. To me, that would be a total Hell. If there was anything good about it, she did not last long.

I suppose that would not really count as a coma. But, now, it turns out that some “vegetative state” victims may be experiencing something far closer to what my aunt experienced than the medical community would have supposed.

Somebody got the idea to hook up some sophisticated brain monitors to a bunch of these patients. Then, the researchers began to talk to the patients and tell them to think about different activities. In a “normal” brain, different parts of the brain “lights up” depending on what the person thinks about: For instance, playing tennis versus listening to a concert.

For most of the patients, asking them to think about different activities did nothing to the brain waves. But for a few (20-30%), the reaction was the same as for a “normal” brain. And in at least one case, the researchers were able to set up signals for yes and no. They asked detailed questions about his life before his head injury. He answered every question accurately. Sounds awfully close to what went on with my aunt.

The study was published in a recent New England Journal of Medicine. There is a fairly detailed article about it on the Washington Post web site. Here is the link for the article: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/02/03/AR2010020302887.html?wpisrc=nl_headline

It will be interesting to see where this research leads in the next few months. There could be huge breakthroughs in the treatment of these cases.

Hypnotists have been using “finger signals” for years to get yes/no answers from the subconscious and bypass the conscious mind. In fact, hypnosis is so effective largely because we communicate directly with the subconscious. At that level, it is easy to change things.

What about your life would you like to change?

Holiday Survival

The holidays are coming–sooner than we want or expect in a lot of cases. Over the years, I’ve probably heard more gripes about the holidays than any other subject, with the possible exception of family in general.

So, why is it that “everyone” realizes that they grew up in a dysfunctional family, but believes that no one else they know did??? But, I digress.

I put together a CD a few years ago that I gave to clients and friends that addressed what seems to be the biggest sources of stress in the holidays.

Through the magic of digitized  everything, I can make it very easy for anyone to get a copy (well, a copy of the content, anyway, if not an actual physical CD). Here is a little more information about it and where to go to download it.

Whatever holiday you celebrate, I want you to enjoy it to its fullest extent! I have a FREE hypnotic Holiday Survival package. This is my gift to you this year.

There are no strings attached. Nothing else to buy. No “opt in” form you have to sign up for. No “squeeze page.” Nothing. Nada. Zip.  Just go to the link below, download the zip file, unzip it and benefit from it.

There are two audio files and a pdf that pretty much repeats what is written here.

Listen to the intro first—it is shhort, only a few minutes. Next is the full hypnosis session (about 30 minutes) that will do several things for you:

  • it will deeply relax you, which will reduce the overall holiday stress
  • it will help you deal with all the celebrations & parties
  • it will help you use your intuition to select the presents you need to/want to buy
  • it will help you deal with the presents you get, particularly the “weird ones”

I suggest you replay the whole hypnosis session whenever you feel stressed. And you can replay it for each gift you have to buy—until you get the hang of doing it on your own. After a few tiimes, you should be able to simply close your eyes, take a few deep breaths and do the process for picking the right gift.

Most of all, just lighten up and have a great holiday season!

Three Ways Hypnosis Can Transform Your Life

Hypnosis is a natural state of consciousness that all people enter and leave several times each day. Unfortunately, few recognize and make positive use of the benefits that this state of being offers.

Hypnosis can be viewed from different vantage points. From a bio-feedback perspective, hypnosis occurs as the brain waves fall back from normal Beta consciousness (a wide-awake state) into Alpha and Theta levels (light, dreamy sleep-like). We pass through this state each night when we fall asleep. And we reverse the process in the morning when we awaken. Daydreaming and similar activities are signs of naturally reentering this state at other times during the day.

From an awareness viewpoint, hypnosis occurs as the attention span focuses down to essentially one thing, while the analytical mind is being distracted from critically monitoring what is going on. If we have ever “become lost” in a TV program, movie or book, we have been hypnotized. The person experiencing hypnosis may lose his sense of time, feeling that hours have passed in seconds or that seconds have passed in hours. At one time or another we have all had these hypnotic experiences while driving. Some of us may experience this condition while working, particularly if we are deeply involved in our work (or if it is extremely repetitive and boring). Other characteristics of hypnosis may include losing awareness of one’s body or one’s location.

Anyone who can follow simple instructions can be hypnotized, but some people do seem to make better subjects than others. Artists, writers, and others involved in creative endeavors seem to be unusually adept at achieving a deep trance state quickly. Likewise, insecure individuals who fear losing control may tend to block the process initially. Often these individuals are associated with occupations that demand high levels of logic and demand rigidity. In the final analysis, the only ones who cannot be hypnotized are those incapable of cooperating or those who choose not to cooperate.

From a therapeutic stance, hypnosis can be used to induce change in a person’s life. This is possible because under hypnosis, even in a light trance, the average person is at least 25 times more suggestible than in the waking state. Furthermore, most of the “filtering” of the logical mind is momentarily reoriented, which is also conducive to change. Hypnosis can help a person in the following ways:

1. Hypnosis may be used to add something to life that is missing. An example might be someone who would like to develop a personal exercise program but lacks the motivation to do so. Hypnosis could be used to help the subject build a powerful burning desire to exercise.

2. Hypnosis may be used to take something away. For instance, someone might be interested in stopping smoking. A skilled hypnotist can help the subject lose his interest in smoking and change his self-image into that of a non-smoker.

3. It may be used to release a person from irrational fears and other forms of limiting beliefs. As an illustration, suppose that a subject has a beautiful voice and would love to sing publicly, but is afraid of the audience. Hypnosis could be used to release the subject from the bondage of his fears regardless of the source, allowing him to become the person that he has been inside.

To summarize, hypnosis is a natural state of consciousness that with skillful guidance can be used productively by the population at large. Objectively, it involves moving the brain-wave activity down from wide awake (Beta) to that area half-way between being asleep and awake (Alpha and Theta). Subjectively, it involves narrowing down the focus of attention to one thing and redirecting the critical mind temporarily disabling normal filters. Bright, creative, flexible people seem to make the best subjects. However, almost anyone can be hypnotized given a desire to enter an altered state and a willingness to participate. From a therapeutic perspective, hypnosis can be used to add something to a person’s life, remove something from it, or release a person from binding fears so that he may express his true self.

The TRUTH about HYPNOSIS is that it is a natural, safe, effective means to achieve rapid change in your life. Take a moment and think about some part of your life you want to change. Just imagine what it will be like when that problem is in the past. Doesn’t that feel good? You can make that a reality by picking up the phone and calling for an appointment now.

I Remember The First Time I Did It

I suppose I started fantasizing about it in high school. But I was alone, and, of course, you can do it to yourself, but there is nothing like doing it to someone else. I was socially inept, so I spent a lot of time alone with my fantasies.

But the first time I did it with another human being was years later. I was married—oh, wait, your mind is in the wrong place. I’m talking about hypnosis and hypnotizing someone else. You just have a dirty mind, don’t you? <g> Well, so do I, but I digress.

I had been doing self-hypnosis since high school, although I may not have quite understood that this is what I was doing. I just called it relaxing my mind.

Anyway, my wife and I were working for the same company and commuting together. One evening as I was driving home in rush-hour traffic at 70 MPH, she was bitching about her day. And she was not calming down.

So, I just started saying out loud to her the words that I had been using on myself for all those years. After a few minutes of “doing an induction” off the top of my head, I glanced over to see that her head was slumped over onto her chest. Wow!!!

I kept talking to her about how relaxed she was and how none of “that stuff” mattered. And then I “counted her out” like I had done for myself so many times. Her energy was transformed. She was calm, and her voice had a relaxed tone to it when she said, “Wow, how did you know how to do that?”

That gave me the courage and inspiration to start looking for some formal training in hypnosis. It was not easy to find in those days. But I was persistent and expense be damned. I knew this was something that I just had to know more about.

Family and friends started asking me to hypnotize them—Wow! I went from “nerd” to life-of-the-party over night!

Now, I have been hypnotizing people professionally for over 27 years. And I can’t think of anything more fun to do with another person—well, actually, I can think of one thing, but you already know I have that kind of mind. <g>

Lies They Tell About Hypnosis

Have you ever wondered what the truth is about hypnosis?

Lies They Tell About Hypnosis

Hypnosis is often misunderstood by those who have never directly experienced it. Much of the misinformation comes from the movies and TV shows. Here are the major “lies” that have been told about hypnosis.

Some people mistakenly believe that hypnosis is not safe. That is false. Hypnosis is a normal state of consciousness. Unfortunately, few people make good use of it on their own. You go in and out of hypnotic states several times each day. Some common places you experience natural hypnosis are while riding in or driving an automobile, while watching TV or a movie, and while daydreaming.

Some people mistakenly believe that a hypnotist can control them. That is false. You are always in control and always decides whether to cooperate with suggestions.

Some people mistakenly believe that they might reveal some deep, dark secret while in hypnosis. That is false. You are more alert in hypnosis, so if you would not tell the hypnotist something now, you certainly would not when in hypnosis. You would just say, “That is none of your business.” Yes, you can talk and communicate while in hypnosis. You can even laugh if something strikes you as funny.

Some people mistakenly believe that they might not “wake up.” That is false. Hypnosis is not sleep, so there is nothing to “wake up” from. You are four- or five-times more aware than in your normal state of mind. If need be, you would immediately remove the relaxation from your body and return to normal awareness.

Some people mistakenly believe that they cannot be hypnotized. That is false. Everyone capable of understanding is capable of being hypnotized. However, hypnosis is a 100% cooperative effort, so you can always choose not to go into hypnosis. It is always your choice to go into hypnosis. It is always your choice to go deeper into hypnosis. It is always your choice to stay in hypnosis. It is always your choice to follow the suggestions you hear while in hypnosis.

Some people mistakenly believe that they lose consciousness when hypnotized. That is false. Consciousness is heightened during hypnosis. You will be even more aware of what is going on. Your hearing will improve while in hypnosis. Your thinking will be clearer. Your body may appear to be asleep, but your mind will be much more alert than normal. Imagination, concentration and memory all dramatically improve while in hypnosis.

Some people mistakenly believe that a hypnotist can make them do bad things that they would not normally do. That is false. Any suggestion that violates any strongly held feeling, moral, ethic or religious belief will be automatically rejected by both your conscious mind and your unconscious mind.

The TRUTH about HYPNOSIS is that it is a natural, safe, effective means to achieve rapid change in your life. Take a moment and think about some part of your life you want to change. Just imagine what it will be like when that problem is in the past. Doesn’t that feel good?

You don’t have to believe me. Find out for yourself:
