Two things happen when you are completely in the moment in this kind of everyday trance. The first is that the world dissolves around you and you become part of the experience. You don’t experience the game, you are the game. The other thing that happens is that you are completely focused. You don’t worry about what other people think of you, you don’t think anything that isn’t relevant to your actions, you simply experience the moment as you are.
This “flow state” is the optimal state for peak performance and one we will return to over and over again throughout this book. When you are in flow, everything you experience in flow is like making love. It could go on forever and you would be happy and successful, never wanting to leave.
Your Real Biorhythms
Many years ago the idea of biorhythms became popular. There were supposedly three cycles of time that everyone experienced, beginning at birth. These cycles would give you various high and low points, say emotionally and intellectually every few weeks. Over time it became obvious that these specific biorhythms simply didn’t exist.
However there are biorhythms that do exist. Most women, for example, have a periodic menstrual cycle though it is by no means predictable from month to month. There are also daily rhythms that almost everyone experiences called Ultradian Rhythms. These cycles begin about every 90-120 minutes and they vary from person to person in both when they begin and how long they last. These periods of “spacing out” happen to just about everyone, every day, several times per day. Almost everyone experiences these cycles. Using these cycles can benefit your health, happiness and can completely change your life! The Ultradian Rhythm phenomenon will be discussed in some detail midway through this chapter.
So What is Hypnosis?
Hypnosis comes from the root word “hypnos” which means sleep. Sleep, however, has nothing to do with what hypnosis is. (“Psychology,” by analogy, literally means study of the soul, and of course, psychology is nothing of the kind. Similarly the word “hypnosis” is a misnomer, meaning nothing like what it’s literal origin is!)
Hypnosis is the ability to access specific every day trance states of mind at will, both dissociated (divided) and associated (possible flow state). Hypnosis is also the umbrella field of study of altering states of mind and consciousness to create change in your mind which will ultimately create change in your body and your life. Hypnosis will help you heal, create change and help you pursue your life’s dream. Come join us on the journey to the deepest parts of your mind and change your life forever.
Hypnosis: An Everyday Experience
What is a trance? A trance is a narrowing state of attention. Trance experiences include a simple every day daydream, “spacing out,” being completely “into” an erotic experience, or being worried about something that might happen. In each of these cases, your attention is focused in a specific area and you are not consciously thinking about everything else that is going on around you.
Each and every day you experience many trances. On any given day you may live through trances of frustration, annoyance, depression, anxiety, and a host of other unwanted experiences. All of these trance states can be changed through self hypnosis. Self hypnosis is a process whereby you take control of the trances you experience on an hour by hour, and, day by day basis.
