People explain to justify what they do, but it’s not based on what others’ feel or think or understand – how do they really know? It’s always based on what their own standards, as if they have to justify their own existance to themselves. It’s very uncomfortable for them to be in a place where “I do what I do because I do it”. Yet in reality, that’s the only place that we can have liberation.

A millennium has passed. A few galaxies I have travelled. Now I come back to the tank. Silence. I can’t feel any water. “Me and the water are one.” That makes a spirituality cliche. But more exactly, I can’t feel my body. I can only hear my breathing. Every inhale, I feel this blowing up expansion, boundless; every exhale, it comes back to normal, only to be blown up again. I love inhales. It feels endless, infinite, and unlimited. I’m as big as universe,
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
One thing I saw in teaching self-hypnosis a lot was impatience. The reason people get impatient with any practice is that they want a certain outcome, and they want the outcome right now.
Attachment to outcome causes impatience; however, whenever we have fun, we don’t feel time pass. We enjoy the process and we don’t care about the ending.
So, to make your self-hypnosis practice effective, the first key is to make it fun. How do we do that?
On one hand, Self-Hypnosis is a conscious way to re-program the subconscious mind. On another, we can use trance work to find answers and wisdom within so that we can move forward with more clarity and ease. More specifically, here are 8 ways we can benefit from Self-Hypnosis.
Is Hypnosis Dangerous?
Nothing is really dangerous when you know it; but everything can appear dangerous when you don’t know it. Therefore what’s dangerous is ignorance.
This blog addresses common fears of being hypnosized, including fear of surrendering will, fear of divulging secrets, fear of not coming out of hypnosis, fear of failing, fear of acting foolishly.
I have also had clients who told me excitedly on the follow-up phone call of all the changes in their life: For some reason, the creativity is flowing freely now. For some reason, I don’t agonize on the decisions anymore, even though the decision hasn’t been made. I am okay in this situation now. For some reason, I smoke less cigarettes now, I just don’t feel like it as much as I used to. For some reason… – by the way, I don’t think I was hypnotized. At least I didn’t go deep into trance. I’m not sure if hypnosis works for me.
Do you have a voice in your head that criticizes your every move or is it 100% self-supporting?
The inner voice is a habit, but a habit is only a habit when it stays unconscious. When you learn to be aware of it, then it becomes a choice. I’ve learned to catch those inner talks, trying so hard to paint a picture of “self”, either negative or positive, and of course, as you can imagine, mostly, indeed, negative.
