Communication with the Unconscious Mind
Definitions: By Unconscious Mind, we don’t mean anything that is mysterious, just Unconscious. Your Unconscious Mind is the part of your mind that you are not conscious of right now.
Hypnotism is the art of entering into Trance. Trance is any altered state. Trance is induced by Suggestion.
Suggestion is either a direct, or an indirect or guarded way of presenting an idea. It is different from logical proof, because of the absence of formal evidence. A Suggestion is usually merely an idea which seems plausible, and which is advanced with an appearance of truth, reality, or accepted fact.
Theory: Among other things, trance can be induced by Fixation of Attention, Ambiguity or Suggestion.
Fixation of Attention occurs when the client’s attention becomes focused on a stimulus or an idea to the exclusion of other stimulii or ideas.
Ambiguity occurs when the input information or sensory data are vague, uncertain, indistinct or unclear. Ambiguity in any representational system can cause trance.
Suggestion is causing an idea to enter into the client’s mind, either directly or indirectly. Trance can also be induced by suggestion — Direct or Indirect. Indirect Suggestion is best used when the client is in the waking state. Direct Suggestion is best used when the client is in trance.
