Hypnosis Opens a Channel to Another World of Human Possibilities
A special state of influence on the human psyche, when the same activity of interaction is manifested by the left and right hemispheres of the human brain, is called hypnosis. It is believed that the left hemisphere controls the consciousness, and the subconscious mind is processed by the right. The state of hypnosis is partially similar to healthy sleep but leaves an imprint in the mind of a person from the influence of a hypnotist. Since the third century BC, the saying has been transmitted that, with a word, you can not only heal, but also injure, or even kill any person. Are these words about hypnosis?
With the help of hypnosis, doctors make a hypnodiagnosis of patients with incomprehensible mental states and find out the causes of burdensome effective tension. Psychotherapy in the form of hypnosis has a tangible positive effect in a short period of time. A vivid example is the healing of blindness by hypnosis in 1918 in the military field hospital of the small Bavarian town of German army corporal Adolf Schicklgruber, who got into trouble at the time of the gas attack near Lamantel in France. As a result, he lost the ability to see. An examination of the corporal led a professor of medicine Foster to the idea that the cause of the patient's imaginary blindness lies in severe psychological trauma. Therefore, the professor decided then to resort to hypnosis. The sight of the patient returned, but hypnotherapy showed an unexpected side effect - until the end of his life, Schicklgruber would be sure of the majesty of his person for world history.
In addition to external influence through hypnosis, there is also self-hypnosis. Self-hypnosis is widespread among the layers of people who strongly believe to the point of fanaticism. For example, Islamic dervishes from the Arifai order perform miracles with their bodies due to their high level of self-hypnosis. They cut and pierce themselves with sharp knives without feeling pain or fear. It is curious that during these manipulations there is not a drop of blood on their skin and no traces remain, while the faces of the dervishes keep complete peace and tranquility, without signs of a grimace of pain. The phenomenon of dervishes is precisely in their deep religiosity and in the rejection of worldly passions for the sake of spiritual perfection.
Hypnosis is a natural phase state for the human body, laid down by nature itself, and not created artificially.
The famous writer, the author of the famous novel A. Dumas, mastered hypnosis and even participated as a hypnotist in a surgical operation to amputate the leg of a French woman. Hypnotic anesthesia can also be induced in an ordinary non-religious person, while his consciousness will not be disturbed. In such cases, the more complex term hypoxia or catalepsy is used, which is a more severe, pronounced, and strong suggestion. In the case of classical hypnosis, people are directly subjected to their will, but such hypnosis is very rarely used. The hypnotist in such cases directly and harshly inspires with an authoritative voice and a look that suppresses the will of a person. Ordinary classical hypnotists, to put a person into a trance, not only carry out suggestions, but also use something else, for example, various pendulums, an abstract conversation, or any other objects that can capture the conscious attention of a person.
Hypnotic trance is used just to reduce the critical assessment of what is happening. The impossible becomes possible when people stop thinking about whether this is permissible. Then the conscious does not interfere with the subconscious, allowing you to use the capabilities of the human body in an unusual mode. At a certain point, the muscles that regulate the spine and arms of a person seem to become stiff. At the same time, the human consciousness remains clear and aware of what is happening, but physically a person cannot influence what is happening to him in any way.
Hypnosis is used not only in medicine but also in the police structure. There are special departments there, whose employees immerse the witness or the victim of the crime herself into a hypnotic trance and help to remember important details of an intricate criminal offense, according to the so-called Hypno-regulatory interrogation technique. A person is immersed in hypnosis, and then mentally transferred to the day and hour when the offense occurred. Usually, a person's consciousness blocks negative life events, and only hypnosis helps to remove this barrier and find out the smallest details of the incident.
Hypnosis helps a person to understand that the world around him is wide and voluminous. People are accustomed to wrapping themselves in a cocoon, limiting their capabilities to their blockage in real life. I. P. Pavlov, a famous Russian physiologist, was the first to suggest at the beginning of the twentieth century that almost the entire area of the cerebral cortex is in a state of inhibition, and hypnosis, as it were, opens a channel to another world of possibilities.
Is it possible to use hypnosis to control not only one person but masses of people? Scientists have noticed that it is much easier to put a group of people into a trance than one person. This phenomenon is called mutual induction. The more a person resists the effects of hypnosis and immersion in a trance, the faster he falls under the will of the hypnotist. If the influence is on a group of people, then the task for the hypnotist is simplified. A huge crowd is perceived by them as a single being. It is from here that the worship of priests, spiritual leaders, and leaders originates, which takes a person into a certain hypnotic state. The crowd has always been and will be easy prey for a talented manipulator.
