How does Hypnotism work?

But before considering how hypnosis works, perhaps the first question should be does hypnosis work?

Theories as to how results are achieved range from the idea that hypnosis produces changes in brain activity, to the idea that the subject is “method acting” the role of a hypnotized person, to the skeptical point of view that it’s all down to the placebo effect (which, of course, raises the awkward question “how does the placebo effect work?”). All of these theories, however, are essentially saying the same thing –hypnosis works by communicating with the unconscious mind.

Conscious and unconscious are really just shorthand terms to describe the general characteristics of the human mind. The “conscious mind” is the bit where we tend to “live” – the bit you might think of as “you”.  If there’s a little voice reading these words out loud in your head, that’s the conscious mind talking.  The unconscious mind is everything else!

The unconscious controls all of the autonomic processes that you don’t have to think about – the heart rate, the blood pressure, tissue growth, cell regeneration, the immune system and so on.  It’s where our thoughts, memories and accumulated experience reside. It controls our emotions, our habits and our responses to the world.

In many ways, it creates that world for us. The unconscious mind handles about two million bits of sensory information every single second. The conscious mind deals with about seven.  That means that the reality you’re actually aware of from moment to moment has been brought to your conscious attention by the unconscious, in a sort of Readers’ Digest version, choosing seven bits which it thinks are important from the two million it’s just processed

An Elephants Memory

In a top of intelligence, humans are followed by apes, elephants and dolphins. The elephant brain is denser than the human’s, and the temporal lobes, associated to memory, are more developed than in humans.

Elephant’s lobes also have more foldings, so that they can store more information. That’s why elephants have excellent memory.

But why? Elephants can recognize over 200 different individuals. This is essential, as females depend on one another for raising the young, more than in the case of other mammals. A mother can remember who is trustful and complex bounds are the bricks of elephants’ society, while the memory is the cement. When two elephants approach one another, they emit a “contact appeal”: if the other recognizes the appeal, it responds and approaches; if not, it starts to agitate and adopts a defensive position. This capacity of recognition lasts a very long time, even after one individual is dead: even the recording of a dead animal attracted the attention of its relatives and descendants.

The group life allows the elephants to raise their young together. A female gives birth, in the best case, to one young every 4 years, and this one will be well cared.

In critical moments, the family stand on the experience of the oldest and wisest female in the group, called matriarch. She controls the daily activity of the herd and leads the family in areas outside the normal domain. Now, her remarkable memory is employed. She will remember where to go during drought periods and what to do in case of danger, as she already passed through these situations, and the older she is, the more effective she is. Her death is tragic for the group, and poachers usually target her, as she possesses the largest tusks in the herd of females.

Some consider elephants to posses consciousness: they have emotions and feelings one for another. The way how they behave with the body of a dead elephant seems to confirm this. It’s like they would understand death. They turn the bones and examine each crack, like wanting to wake up a sleeping baby

The Elixir of Immortality

Mushrooms were consumed by ancient Egyptian, Aztecs and Maya for centuries in religious ceremonies, used for healing, divination, and communion with the spirit world. Many species of mushroom can be found growing naturally in the wild today. Personally I have found mushrooms to be eye opening over the past 5 years. The effects psilocybin can be subtle but effective in opening the range of your perspective mentally as well as bringing attention to false desires .  There will be more information on how to use magic mushrooms or other shamanistic tools to bridge the gap!

Be on the look out for the new Shaman section soon. I will be giving updates on personal experience and visual journeys.
