Chapter 3 - A Journey Into Hypnosis Revision Q. What is a message unit? A. It’s any unit of information that our brain analyses. Q. What is a ‘trance’? A. It’s a state that our mind enters into when we’re deeply relaxed. Our mind operates at a low frequency when in this state, usually at a theta level. Q. How does a person enter a trance? A. By receiving an overload of message units. Q. What is the difference between a physical and emotional suggestibility type? A. A physical suggestible responds to direct suggestions, whilst an emotional suggestible responds to indirect suggestions. Q. What is an example of a direct suggestion? A. “You can try to lift your arm, but you no matter how hard you try, you can’t lift it” Q. What is an example of an indirect suggestion? A. “You may feel your arm has a tendency to become heavier and heavier with each breath you take. And as you concentrate on your breathing, you may find that your arm becomes so heavy that it seems to become a part of the table it’s rested on”. Q. Why are failure words so important when inducing someone into a trance? A. They make the person believe that they cannot do something, which is one way of causing an overload of message units, and deepening the state of trance.

Q. How do we send someone even deeper into trance? A. By overloading them with more message units, such as through the use of a deepening technique. Q. What is a somnambulist? A. Someone who is equally emotional and physically suggestible. Q. What form of suggestion do we use with a somnambulist? A. Either direct or indirect, it does not matter. Q. Explain the theory of mind A. The theory of mind is the belief that there is a conscious and subconscious mind. Separating the two is the critical mind. In order to make suggestions pass into the subconscious, they must first pass the critical mind. We can use hypnosis to send someone into a trance and bypass the critical mind, allowing us to plant suggestions directly into the person’s subconscious. Q. Why can’t we make a person do something if it’s against their fundamental morals or beliefs? A. Because a person’s fundamental morals and beliefs are stored within the person’s subconscious, and govern every aspect of the way they think and behave. Q. How would you make someone raise their right arm, seemingly outside of that person’s control? A. Cause an overload of message units in the person, and thereby invoke a state of trance. When in trance, give the person a suggestion that their right arm is raising. Word the suggestion in accordance with the person’s suggestibility type. Exercises Exercise 1.

Try and determine whether or not they may be more introverted or extroverted. Exercise 2. You may be missing something important. Approach each friend and family member and ask them if they’d be wiling to answer the ten suggestibility questions. Incorporate failure words such as “try” and “cannot” in your suggestion. If you keep practicing this exercise your accuracy will increase with time.determine whether they are of a physical or emotional suggestibility type. Don’t worry if you feel nervous at first.
