But my true answer is that I practice “Kemilian”. That sounds quite funny. But then, the unconscious mind processes information 11 million bits per second. As a hypnotherapist trusting her own unconscious mind, I think that’s a very appropriate answer to the question of my practice, including the sound of it.
All aspects of self-hypnosis – techniques, applications, challenges, practices…
“I don’t know. Maybe in hypnosis I’ll lose control. Maybe I’ll say things that I may not want to say.”
I still didn’t quite understand what exactly Carolyn was referring to, but I told Carolyn content-free hypnosis was completely possible. Besides, her subconscious mind is that protective mind. It will not say things to me that she was not ready for. Subconscious mind is even good at blocking things from ourselves, let alone another person.
Recently, someone living in London UK sent me an email asking some very challenging questions on accessing his subconscious mind using Pendulum. We went back and forth with a lot of long emails that I will not get into the details in this post. However, one particular correspondence between us may be helpful for those who practice pendulum or dowsing.
The beginning of a new year always gives us a lot of refreshed energy to have dreams and goals renewed. It provides a new outlook for things and opportunities that we’d like to manifest in our lives.
The process of manifestation is not exactly the same as goal setting and achieving. Traditional goal setting is more controlled and planned. It is more focusing on action taking. There is often some forceful energy in goal setting.
The Flight-or-Flight Response is built into our human biology. The reptilian brain, by far the oldest and simplest part of our brain, is responsible for our survival. It is a system from ancient times which caused an individual to either fight or run for protection when real physical danger was present, such as a large hungry animal. Today people don’t have to face the issue of survival on a daily basis. Yet this component still exists in our biology and can be easily activated, in most people, when a danger is real or when it is just imagined to be real, such as with fear of abandonment, or fear of not being good enough.
Like many others, I’ve lived a life with a lot of searchings – The meaning of love, the wonders of what seem to work what don’t, the puzzle of my own existance. I read. I travel. I converse. I long for the answers and finally I was pointed to go deep down within myself.
“Alright now, 1, 2, 3!” They stand up and switch. A very interesting thing happens. Lillian, as petite as she is, instantly open her eyes wide, and stretches her legs in a way that Diego often shows; while Diego curls up his long legs aside in a feminine way and looks at Lillian softly.
The sensation of pain is simply a signal to tell us some important information. Like a red light on a car dashboard telling us the fuel level is low. We can, of course, do something to disconnect the light signal so it stops, but that can be dangerous if the car is running on the road. When you fill in fuel, the signal automatically goes off.
I’ve always found this word “selfish” intriguing. It’s such an empty word by itself yet there are so many loaded meanings and emotions to it. An artificial word, yet a powerful label.
To be labeled “selfish” is not a nice feeling for many of us so we would do whatever it takes to avoid being labeled as such, mostly, to try to put the happiness of others ahead of our own.
And it’s such a popluar ideal throught human history in most cultures that a lot of people give up what makes them happy to “fit in” the consensus. the problem is, general consensus is just a bunch of ideal, concepts and labels that are all so empty inside.
Self-Hypnotism was the first hypnotism book I ever bought, during a library book sale some years ago. At that time, I didn’t know anything more than anyone else about hypnotism. I just saw the cover, intrigued by the title, and bought it, 25 cents. The book was published many years ago (first edition in 1964?) and the used book looked old. I started to read the first couple of chapters and that was it…
It was not until years later, after my inner hypnotist was fully awakened and I
