Everyday Hypnosis

Happy Wednesday everyone! For our Practical Wisdom Wednesday we are going to be taking a look at something outside of the literary world and instead discuss... The thing that everyone owns (or almost everyone).

Everyone likes (almost everyone).

Everyone accepts as normal (almost everyone).

And everyone is addicted to (almost everyone) Can you guess what that is?

Sugar? Nope.

Caffeine? Nope.

Cocaine? We hope not.

Something worse than all of these? Maybe...

Television.

First off, let me just say...

Like everything that exists in this world, television can be used for good and for bad. It all depends on our awareness.

So...

Let's talk about it.


Television How do you feel in the middle of a binge-watch on Netflix? Or when flicking through channels? How about the news?

Alert? Excited? Engaged? Happy? Or...

Sedated? Unaware? Lifeless? Dull?

Most would choose the second option.

But do you know why? It's because television was created in a way to put your brain into a hypnosis state.

What does this mean?

In 1969, Herbert Krugman, an employee of General Electric and a pioneer in the advertising agency, conducted experiments on the effect of human brainwaves when watching television:

"Krugman monitored a person through many trials and found that in less than one minute of television viewing, the person's brainwaves switched from Beta waves- brainwaves associated with active, logical thought- to primarily Alpha waves. When the subject stopped watching television and began reading a magazine, the brainwaves reverted back to Beta waves."


And what is the Alpha brainwave state?

"Alpha waves are present in deep physical and mental relaxation, and usually when the eyes are closed, during a daydream, or in light meditation. It is the optimal time to program the mind and it also heightens your imagination, visualization memory, learning, and concentration. It is the gateway to your subconscious mind, and the voice of your intuition, which becomes clearer and more profound the closer you get to 7.5Hz." Sounds cool right? Well...

Think about how many times you watched a program on television that involved fear, violence, pain, hatred, low self-esteem, unworthiness, lack and I can go on. Think about how many television programs are created with this as their plot or theme. A large portion, right?

Okay, now make the logical conclusion. Your subconscious mind is being programmed into thinking that is you.

Your brain does not know the difference between what is happening in your actual life and what is happening on television, because it actively experiences both. That means, everything you watch is being programmed into your subconscious mind because you are literally open due to your Alpha brainwave state. This results in lowering your vibration and the injecting fear (or whatever else) into your body. And we are supposed to believe these large companies selling us products, these directors, ad agencies, and others don't know this? Let's not be naive. Of course they do! That is why a large portion of advertising works. They create the problem in our heads, offer the solution, and then sell it to us. Pretty tricky right? But the rabbit hole doesn't end there...

Think about how the mind affects illness in the body (a great resource for more information on the mind's power over the body can be found HERE) or how it can affect your relationships with others and money, or how the mind can use imagination to create great pieces of art, and more.

Think about how everything that is man-made in our society first started as a thought in the mind. Now...

Think about how injecting fear, lack, and hatred into the mind by bypassing the filtering system through an alpha wave hypnosis state affects the totality of our entire world...

And we no longer have to wonder why reality is the way it is. Of course, some of you may already know this, which is great! But for those who don't... Practiaal Wisdom This week...

Monitor everything that you watch on television and other media devices such as Youtube.

Immediately pick out the theme they are presenting...

Is it light? Hopeful? Happy? Abundant? Exciting? Encouraging? Adventurous? Or...

Is it dark? Hopeless? Sad? Lack? Scary? Discouraging? Violent? If it is the second one...

Turn it off immediately. You wouldn't want to experience anything these shows are broadcasting in your life, so why experience them in your mind which in turn creates your personal reality?

We want to create a world of abundance and joy.

And that starts with you...

Right now...

In this moment. Eventually, with some practice, you might be able to tell the difference between what you are actually feeling and what has been programmed into your subconscious...


Opening a whole new door to the active creation of the life you wish to live.

Think about it.
