Imagine the power to hypnotize the mind! Imagine if you could virtually cast a spell on a person and they would do your bidding?
I was fascinated with hypnosis as a kid. I read books about powerful people casting spells and wielding their great powers for good or for evil. It was years later that I realized that I'd missed the point of these stories.
What I liked about these stories was the possibility of using mind power to achieve. Sure, it's always cool when other people appear to line up to give you what you want, but the real challenge is usually achieving power over your own thoughts.
You only think need to get other people to do what you want. Spending energy on that desire is a waste of your time.
If you really want an interesting mind power challenge, hypnotize the mind, YOUR mind, to produce your desired results.
What you think is what you get.
Creative visualization is based on this very premise.
The American Heritage Dictionary defines hypnosis: An artificially induced altered state of consciousness, characterized by heightened suggestibility and receptivity to direction.
I suggest that we use a broader definition. Here's why:
What you tell your mind, that you believe, you will experience.
If you wake up in the morning in a bad mood, you may have noticed that you frequently have a bad day.
Wake up happy, you will generally have a good day.
This is a common experience.
So, back to the definition of hypnosis. A broader definition might be:
A state of mind or consciousness achieved by practice of a specific thought coupled with emotion, used to achieve a desired result.
With a definition like that, it's easy to see how to apply hypnosis, self-hypnosis, in how to get what you want! In fact, it's just like creative visualization.
Hold an idea in mind that you want. Enjoy it often.
See it in detail. Feel the emotions of that situation that you desire. It is at this point that you are using hypnosis. Nothing fancy - no deep trance is required!
By using this technique (it's sort of a meditation technique!) to hypnotize the mind, you have just tapped into the very powerful Law of Attraction tool, the "how to get what you want" tool, that will reprogram your mind and bring results in your physical life.
