Hypnosis!!!

Check out the video above to see how hypnosis looks like.. And be prepared to hurt your jaws from laughing!!

Hypnosis has been around us from almost 300 years. Like we see in movies, it’s not brainwashing or magic. Hypnosis is a trance-like state of heightened concentration, we do experience this state when we do something which we enjoy the most…

Hypnosis results in some physical changes, like reduced rates of blinking the eye movements (saccades). Cats are scared of cucumber because they look like snakes, then why are domestic cats scared of cucumber, which haven’t ever seen snakes in their life time? Well.. The reason is, all mammals while they are in the womb experience a dream state called rem state, that is where mammals get their brains programmed. In case of cats they are programmed to be scared of snakes. Now, hypnosis is like altering that program!!

Try identifying the colour in which the words are written below…

In case of the words written in unknown language, we wont go wrong but, I guess most of you probably “Us” got it wrong in case of the words written in the language we understand! This is called “interference effect” that causes the meaning of the words to take priority over their visual colour. However with the post hypnosis, people were able to do this task effortlessly and even the MRI brain scan revealed that the brain region responsible for language did not become activated..

This explains Hypnosis is real but it’s no magic. Hypnosis is generally regarded as an altered state of consciousness, a broad category that includes meditative states.. There is something called self-hypnosis, where in we hypnotise ourselves to get over anxiety during exams, overcoming tensions, building confidence for achieving goals etc…

Here’s how its done Self-Hypnosis… Self-Hypnosis is similar to Zen meditation, this word should be familiar to you if you had read one of my previous posts “Science of becoming batman” where in Batman(fictional character) learned zen meditation to get most effective rest in a less time…
