A client of mine recommended this movie “The Mancurian Candidate” when we were talking about that a lot of people get education on hypnotism from Hollywood. And I was told the remake in 2004 was not as good as the original one, so I found the original black and white movie.
Surprisingly, the brainwash and mind control in this movie is shockingly believable. The powerful conditioning of one’s mind and stealing of one’s soul turned the character of Raymond Shaw a man driven to do things he has no idea why.
Being a hypnotherapist myself, having read all major books on past life regressions, and having conducted many past life regressions myself, I still found this book “You Have Been Here Before” intriguing. It is an educational and a pleasant read.
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.
Human existence starts with babyhood, when we have to “learn” everything from adults who have completely lost connection with their own deeper dimensional self, their soul. What often happens, before we know it, we find ourselves completely engaging the linear. We are completely hypnotized by the linear world and its worldview.
Whether you are aware or not, you live with aspects of hypnosis almost every day. Hypnosis comes packaged in many shapes and sizes that are seldom, if ever, called hypnosis. There is one hypnotist to the right of you and another to your left. They are your friends and relatives, your neighbours, the people you work with, and the person selling products on television.
