Self Hypnosis should only be practiced by those who have been trained. Hopefully by someone knowledgeable in this or trained to teach it.
The article or whatever you read, is NOT Self Hypnosis even though that is the label it was given.
It, the article, if you're basing Self Hypnosis on that, is actually called, Self Conditioning." Like Mazlov's Bell & Dog experiment.
Even Self Conditioning takes about 98% practice by those who can, should STILL be taught to you.
Both require self discipline, willingness, a clear mind, certainty & a Lot of PRACTICE.
Neither 'just happens' after reading instructions or taking a two hour course.
Both require DEDICATION.
You STILL need Self Discipline BEFORE learning Self Hypnosis or Hypnosis of ANY kind.
It does come easily & quickly for some. Not a majority.
If it is something you truly want, it is disciplinary like any martial arts & meditation practices for proper training in martial arts.
It also requires much focus.
There ARE short classes you can take but the old saying," Knowledge can be a wonderful thing, a LITTLE knowledge can be a dangerous thing." Which
is very applicable here or you could hurt yourself, others if attempting to try on someone else, can cause you nightmares & all sorts of little
goodies like that or similar or worse.
I've been trained. 8 years. Even that is not always enough though so I don't have a Guru ette? ess? fantasy.
I was a Registered Nurse who switched over to a Bachelor in Registered Psychiatric Nurse with a Bachelor of Science in Mental Health as well as much
meditation and self discipline in all forms of martial arts & I worked for a stage Hypnotist on the side for about 20 years off & on. Meaning
whenever he performed.
Now the pro's lol!
Almost immediately both self discipline & Self Hypnosis can allow you to shut off your hearing & have you only see a test or exam.
It's very handy as a study tool
It is a useful tool for yoga, martial arts, etc.
You CAN get rid of pain but there are other factors that play rolls in that such as trained breathing patterns, the way you sit, lay, stand, etc.
You can tune out every distraction
You can make a Grapefruit more sweet and tasty than an orange
You can give yourself strength
Possibilities are ALMOST limitless but NOT 100%
NOW Allergies; You MAY be able to lessen YOUR reaction to some in various degrees BUT NOT all AND there are other factors in this also such as
maintaining a level of calm, how many other allergens you may not even know you are allergic to, temperature, environment, & so much more but NEVER
EVER rely on this for SEVERE TO ANAPHALATIC ALLERGIES AS THAT WOULD BE A SURE 99.9999% OF YOU DYING! ALWAYS HAVE BACK-UPS.
Now for me? I find it very helpful for work, ONLY somewhat for my health issues such as allergies when there are other interfering factors, but I
love the fun aspects most. It can rid you of your anxiety or greatly lesson it & THAT is usually a problem for other problems Self Obedience &
Hypnosis are generally used for.
It's also a form of great entertainment, like you can go somewhere awesome without leaving home, accomplish amazing but realistic goals, dream what
YOU want to dream when you sleep, control & recall the dream, give yourself, etc.
FACT: A HYPNOTIST CAN NOT REALLY HYPNOTIZE YOU, YOU ACTUALLY HYPNOTIZE YOURSELF TO FOLLOW THE HYPNOTIST'S SUGGESTIONS. IF ANYTHING THE HYPNOTIST
GOES AGAINST YOUR MORES AND VALUES, YOU INSTANTLY WAKE, WHICH LETS HYPNOTISTS AND POSSIBLE OTHERS, A CLUE OF THE REAL YOU AND WHAT YOU ARE POTENTIALLY
CAPABLE OF. GOOD OR BAD.
The Hypnotist I worked with, he could make me look at the ceiling and see a huge coloured tv on which the movie would be a suggested portion of my
life, make me go stiff as a board light as a feather, position my neck on the back of 1 chair while another would position my ankles to the back of
another chair & get this, I'm 100lbs if. The big male Hypnotist would, in my state, walk and jump on my torso. Or I'd be place on a bed of nails &
he did the waling & jumping, I never felt either, there no marks on my body, & I never hurt after in anyway. Had me forget my name, see ghosts, an
invisible man, leave out the numbers 6 & 13 while counting to 20, think I was a Cop in a shoot out, be stuck standing on the floor feeling like I had
to pee but not allowed to till he said." move! Go to the rest room & empty your bladder now! BUT being a brunette Dolly Parton, one that cannot
sing, at all, he couldn't resist, one show, he put a blond wig on me, gave me a mic & told me to sing a Dolly original," I will always love you."
Because, The Best Little Chicken House in Texas," was JUST big. He said," Go near the railing Miss Dolly, & shake that chest at your fans in the
1st row, turn them on yeah!"
Guess what? I sang, beautifully, almost just like her! BUT... I guess it fully went against my more & values at that time lol! I awoke. 1st time.
He now knew the line.
Lastly? THINK! How many people go to hypnotists for pain? To lose weight? To quit smoking or other addicted BEHAVIORS etc? Maybe, JUST maybe, you
know someone it may have worked on? How many was that? How long did it last before saying they HAD to go back & have it redone because they think
the hypnotic suggestion was working, ( For 6 weeks say, well many of US smokers have done this many times on our own for 6 week or 5 years even )
but must have worn off so they HAD to get re-hypnotized and have their post hypnotic suggestion redone?
They only hypnotized themselves to begin with but had some personal event that broke their own hypnosis but believe their hypnotist ( We usually have
someone help us decide what to do for certain things ) who only suggested it, was 100% the Hypnotists's doing..
I HAVE written a book on this and a short movie documentary but I can't tell you the names or anything.
