In this week’s Success Newsletter, I would like to talk about hypnosis and the devil!
First a quick update:
Many people wrote to say that they missed out on the class because of the huge response, so, you can now listen to “The Secret to Get What You Truly Deserve” https://www.patrickwanis.com/TheSecret_GWYTD
You can watch some of the Montel Williams show featuring me working with people who have challenges with anger; I am now the first person ever to do hypnotherapy on national television at and listen also to my special audio program, “The Psychology of Anger”
Next week I will have the link for you to watch me on University of Miami’s “Off the Wire” –late night talk and comedy sketch show
Now let’s talk about hypnosis and the devil.
Many people believe that a hypnotist has supernatural powers and can control you. This is absolutely false. If you ever saw my hypnosis stage shows (which I no longer perform) it appears as if I am controlling them but as my shows proved hypnotized people will never do anything against their will. The CIA also conducted secret experiments in the 1950s using hypnosis and drugs to try and create the ultimate war soldier and they learned that they couldn’t force people to act against their deepest will.
Hypnosis (similar to meditation) is an altered state of consciousness whereby you are open to suggestion and able to access the subconscious mind and vividly recall and feel past events. It is similar to daydreaming and guided or creative visualization. Neurologically, hypnosis is a state where your brain waves slow down and the slower your brain waves are, the more relaxed you become and the faster you learn and absorb information. Hypnosis is not sleep.
An example of hypnosis or trance is driving a car and reaching your destination without remembering most of the journey, having lost track of time. Another example is watching a movie and feeling it as real, experiencing all of the emotions – fear, laughter, suspense, excitement, anger, tension – even though we know it is just a movie. I remember one friend who went into trance after seeing the movie Rocky for the first time. He was so moved and energized by the movie, he ran all the way home – seven miles – without even saying goodbye!
Here is a secret: all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. In other words, the hypnotist gives you the suggestions to relax, breathe deeply, etc and you decide to follow or not. You have complete control at all times as evidenced by Steve on the Montel show and if you are worried about being brainwashed, then take note of everything you watch, listen or read. They are all affecting your mind. Take charge of your mind and what you feed it.
As Montel pointed out on his TV show this past Monday, hypnotherapy and my techniques are vastly different from traditional hypnosis for stop smoking or other symptom removal. What I do is not simply suggestion, commands nor NLP. I go deeper under hypnosis to uncover the root cause of the issue, identifying the triggering event during childhood, release the emotions, identify what beliefs were taken on at the time, gain new understanding about the event – why it happened, understand that the event is now over, done with and in the past (the subconscious mind loops the event) forgive the people associated with the triggering event, express compassion for self and those people, and take on new beliefs about self, the world and life. Also, command or suggestion hypnosis will not clear the cause of the issue or block – it only works to try and remove the symptom. I do not do symptom removal. I always seek out the cause so that the client can get the real healing. No one has done this process of hypnotherapy on national TV prior to this week.
Notice that I stress the importance of forgiveness and compassion. This is my primary intention and it is the same thing that Jesus, Mother Theresa and all the great teachers emphasized: love and forgiveness. I believe the key to being set free of most of our issues is forgiveness which comes from insights and new understanding about past events and the people who did or didn’t do things to and for us. Note Jesus’ last words, “Father, forgive them for they know not what they do.”
Permanent change occurs when there is new understanding and this is the greatest difference between hypnosis (suggestions and commands) and hypnotherapy.
Here is a testimonial from Tammy whom I hypnotized on the Montel show:
“Patrick just wanted to tell you Thank You. I feel like a new person since you helped me. It was a wonderful experience and if it wears off I want to come see you in Miami. I feel it is worth the money to come see you if I feel as half as good as I do now. Thank you again I feel like I have a new life thanks to you…”
