Introduction to Hypnosis and Self-Hypnosis
Hypnosis is a state of consciousness of complete presence to oneself and to the outside.
Natural function of the mind thanks to which many benefits can be obtained, hypnosis allows a cerebral synchronization of the two hemispheres for a perfect optimization of human resources.
The hypnotic process consists of a total concentration of attention within oneself to draw on the whole range of the individual's abilities and make them usable, ready for use.
The word HYPNOSIS triggers fear and curiosity at the same time, because, although practiced for millennia and recognized as a practice for well-being by the World Health Organization, this matter still fascinates today because veiled in mystery, people are attracted and suspicious at the same time.
Lesson 1 - What is hypnosis?
The misconceptions about hypnosis still abound today.
The causes can be found in the use of hypnosis as a form of entertainment on stage and on television. Leaving aside this rather specialized form of hypnosis, called a show, one way to understand the phenomenon of hypnotic trance could be to imagine a state of relaxation in which the conscious mind detaches itself from daily worries and disturbances.
In this particular state of relaxation, the subconscious part of our mind is more inclined to respond creatively to suggestions. It can focus on the things you want to change and the ways to do it better, free from critical or anxious thoughts. You are in a state of relaxation but without sleep, in full awareness of yourself. You simply "let things happen" through the subconscious mind rather than trying to make them happen with the thigh mind.
Lesson 2 - The mind
We could imagine the human mind as a layered structure, as if it were an onion.
The peel, or the outer layer, is the conscious mind, which guides us in everyday life with decision-making processes that work according to the reality principle. It is intelligent, realistic, logical, procedural and analytical. However, it can only deal with a limited set of things at a time and is easily overloaded.
The pulp, or the main part hidden in the hidden inner layers, is the unconscious mind, which guides us and works on "automatic pilot".
The unconscious part affects and governs our emotions, imagination and memories as well as our autonomous nervous system automatically controls our internal organs. These main functions are interconnected, in other words the mind influences the body and vice versa. The subconscious is powerful because it is capable of handling many complex instructions simultaneously but it is not "intelligent". It tends to think and act like a four year old. He has a strong desire to help and facilitate change, but he is very naive as well as his way of acting.
As learned in the previous lesson, each hemisphere of the brain has very different attributes and functions.
Lesson 3 - A brief history of hypnosis
ETYMOLOGY AND ORIGINS
Hypnosis owes its name to the Greek word hypnos (sleep), although the hypnotic state is very different from that of sleeping. It has been practiced by man since the dawn of time, evidence comes from the time of the ancient Babylonians, Greeks and Egyptians and has taken on different names depending on the religion, culture or tradition that exercised it. In general, practices that involve the use of songs, drums and dance rituals to change or alter the state of consciousness fall under the definition of hypnosis. These methodologies have been successfully used and handed down for centuries and centuries by Druids, Vikings, Indian Yogis, Sufis, shamans, King Thaumaturges, Hindu priests and in a broader spectrum by saints of all religions and enlightened men of all traditions and cultures . In 2600 BC, for example, Wong Tai, the father of Chinese medicine, wrote about healing techniques based on certain hand movements and repeated words. Many stories about what we call hypnosis today can also be read in the Bible and Hindu Vedas.
Lesson 4 - Suggestibility test
These are preliminary tests to be performed when working for the first time with a person who wants to have a hypnotic experience. Why are they carried out and what are they for?
1. To classify the subject - The suggestibility test allows to evaluate the person's openness. Is it available, hesitant or rebellious?
2. Prepare the actual session - They are tests that predispose a favorable state of expectation because they intrigue
3. They provide clues - The test result provides various information elements to the operator; for example, it is possible to understand whether the subjects are analytical or non-analytical, and then proceed with the best procedures and inductions for that type of person.
Lesson 5 - Testing the Chevreul pendulum
The pendulum is an excellent suggestibility test to use, because it is successful with practically everyone, young and old. And it has worked for centuries. It focuses on the ideomotor responses, or all those imperceptible micro movements of which we are not aware and owes its name to the experiments of Michel-Eugene Chevreul, a French chemist who lived 103 years between the end of the 18th and 1800s, who studied at the academy of science for over twenty years the results obtained from tests conducted with the use of the pendulum tool. Children love it and intrigue adults because the idea behind it is to move the pendulum using only the secret power of the mind. In any case, everyone has fun!
