CAUTION: NEVER LISTEN TO HYPNOSIS WHILE DRIVING A CAR, OR REQUIRING YOUR MIND TO FUNCTION. QUITE OFTEN HYPNOSIS WILL PUT YOUR MIND TO SLEEP!
It may surprise you to know hypnosis has been around for centuries. Prior to, and during the 17th Century, it was believed hypnosis could be used to perform miracles or control minds. The 18th Century marked a time where “occult” hypnosis began to give way to a new “scientific” viewpoint.
Enter the 19th Century and curiosity peaked in an attempt to understand how hypnosis really worked. Risking their reputations, doctors took an interest in hypnosis which led to studies in universities and unique applications in hospitals. Their efforts to understand the scientific scope of hypnosis began a wide spread acceptance in the general population. This trend continued into the 20th Century making hypnosis a popular phenomenon for easing psychological distress and creating change in a variety of situations.
Today in the 21st Century we have come a long way where hypnosis is concerned. It is now believed to be a universal phenomenon that’s just part of being human. As the future unfolds, it promises a widespread awakening to our own natural hypnotic abilities.
Meanwhile, there seems to be a common belief that in order to be hypnotized you must be in a trance similar to sleep. Perhaps this theory grew from dramatic hypnotic scenes portrayed in Hollywood movies. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Hypnosis is a natural state you move in and out of during every day of your life.
Many of your normal activities are actually performed in a light state of hypnosis without knowledge. Have you ever felt spaced-out, lost track of time or missed your turn because you were thinking of something else? If so, you were in a state of light state hypnosis. You were fully aware of everything around you, yet removed from it at the same time. Watching TV, reading a good book, playing video games or even driving a vehicle will induce within you a light hypnotic state. When you wake up in the morning you are not fully conscious, yet, not fully unconscious either; this state is commonly referred to as the Alpha State”.
The first part of any hypnosis session works on puts you into an Alpha state where you are up to 200 more times suggestible than when you are fully awake. Entering into this state you become more relaxed, your breathing and mind chatter slows down but you can remain completely aware of everything around you. Sometimes, but not always, you will be able to recall the entire hypnosis session at the end.
It is quite possible to become so relaxed that you do fall asleep during a hypnosis session. As part of the “In Pursuit of Healing” program, these MP3’s are intended for listening a minimum of 21-days in a row and at bedtime to fall into a restful sleep. Research has proven your mind remains open to receiving the hypnosis information because it never sleeps; it is always alert and wide awake.
Hypnosis never takes any control away from you. As stated previously, your mind is always alert and wide awake. If at any time you want to exit the hypnosis session, simply count “one-two-three” in your head and you will immediately exit the trance and become alert.
It is important for you to remember the following facts about hypnosis:
The “In Pursuit of Healing” MP3’s have the potential to reprogram your subconscious mind with positive, life altering beliefs.

Some people find the program works better when they dedicate a full 30 days/nights (or longer) listening to the healing MP3’s. The choice remains yours, but rushing any healing program may cause failure and disappointment.
