WHAT IS HYPNOSIS?
Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of concentration of the mind and body. It is a very relaxed, hyper-suggestible state in which a person experiences deep physical and mental relaxation which allows for the bypass of the critical factor of the conscious mind. When the critical factor is bypassed, you now have access to the wisdom and knowledge of the subconscious mind.
As quoted from the "Introduction"…..
"Hypnotism is the most practical science of the age. It enters into our everyday life and confers advantages that cannot be acquired through any other medium. Its practice is no longer a mere past time for amusement and sensation. Professional people of the highest standing now recognize its value and seek profit by its benefits. Scientists regard it as a natural power, for ages kept dormant, but apparently destined to perform an active part in the welfare and development of future generations. To study hypnotism is like un-fathoming the hidden mysteries of magic and human miracles and making them matters of absolute knowledge. Its possibilities are almost boundless and are interwoven with every phase of human life. Its powers are largely responsible for the successful determination of modern business and social undertakings.
It does not require years of study to become a hypnotist, for this great blessing to Mankind is of natural endowment, possessed by practically everyone and capable of being developed by all who will devote to its study the patience and energy always so necessary for the development of natural talents. The reward is great that follows the persistent study of hypnotism, for it is a science that bestows upon its devotees a power that is almost superhuman. It overawes everyone who witnesses its indisputable acts and its marvelous manifestations. It overthrows the theories of judges and philosophers and theologians and shakes the faith of material scientists in their preconceived opinions. It supports the surgeon and the physician and cures the afflicted and the deformed whom they pronounce beyond the hope of recovery. It breaks the chains of demoralizing and destructive habits. It comforts sorrowing and brings peace of mind to those distracted by the perplexities of life. It abolishes periods of time and extensive distance. It makes the lame to walk and strengthens the weak and causes the raving maniac to become as docile as a little babe. It checks the hand of death and snatches almost from the grave the grim destroyer's victims. It loosens the tongue of the stutterer, overcomes the self-consciousness of the backward, and tempers the impetuousness of the rash enthusiast. To Mankind in every walk of life it is a blessing leading his innermost thoughts to higher and nobler things. Developing his powers to plan and to execute and giving him social, financial, and intellectual eminence among his fellow Man. All this and more is hypnotism."
Dr. William Wesley Cook's Practical Lessons in Hypnotism was originally published in 1901, but this scholarly study is as relevant as it ever was. In spite of the skeptics, hypnotism has long been a psychological science that has earned the respect of many in the medical profession (notably, Sigmund Freud) and hypnotherapy is widely used in many treatment programs. Here, Cook approaches the subject in a constructive way, covering the history and philosophy of the science, as well as practical techniques and considerations. Most compelling are the studies of hypnotism's many applications, such as in self-healing, anesthesia, behavioral therapy, and even persuasion in the field of business. Cook's work also includes intellectual discussions on tangential-and fascinating-subjects such as telepathy, clairvoyance, and magnetic healing. Comprehensive and erudite, it promises satisfaction for the curious as well as the studious.
