I use "Screenblast Sound Forge" a free audio program to record a Self-Hypnosis induction script followed by the suggestions I want to make. I also like to make a simple subliminal tract too. Anyways, you can either record the bwgen audio as a wave file and mix it all together or you can simply run the two audio programs in tandem [Smiley] I prefer the tandem method but it takes a little practice to get the voice and bwgen volumes the way you like it but this way you can play with the presets.

It's the same as regular hypnosis. You're basically in the theta range and it's like when you are awake and can hear, but you don't want to move. You have a lot of theta waves when you are a small child, which is why you are influenced so easily. Hypnosis is basically putting you in that state.
So...no it's not dangerous.[Cheesy]

Hypnosis is safe in the history of hypnosis no one was ever hurt.

All hypnosis is self hypnosis, the hypnotist only helps the person to acheive that state.  The hypnotist has no power over people, the only power a hypnotist has is his knowledge of the technique to help Induce a person.

Every one go's through hypnosis at least twice a day.  Just before waking in the morning and just before going to sleep.  You can also be in hypnosis when one Watches a movie or tv, driving a car as he watches the lines on a dark night.  Cutting the grass out side.  So hypnosis is Day Dream.  

Everyone has gone into a hypnotic state its called Indirect Hyonosis.

Below is some information on Hypnosis.
______________________________________________________________________

What is Hypnosis?
HYPNOSIS is a "sleeplike" state used to experience forgotten or suppressed memories, create hallucinations & heightens a persons suggestibility. People consider it a sleeplike condition, but it is NOT a sleeping person, not a sleep state and does NOT mean "sleep". (Except in Greek!)
Word Origins
"HYPNOS" means "Sleep" in Greek.

Hypnos is also the Greek mythological God of Sleep.
If Hypnosis is not a sleep state, what is it?
To be hypnotized means a person is placed in a state resembling sleep - most similar to the state one is in when sleepwalking. The state one is in when sleepwalking is called "SOMNAMBULISM."
"somni-" or "somn-" as a preface is Latin for sleep."
These states are all stages of hypnosis or hypnotic sleep, the induced state of hypnosis.
Hypnosis resembles normal sleep, but is different from normal sleep due to an increase in the person's pulse rate and respiration. Hypnosis resembles anesthesia.
A person in a hypnotic state is open to all forms of suggestibility including an openness to authority, advice, testing, criticism and judgment.
A person in a hypnotic state is open to suggestions affecting conscious choices and decisions. The subconscious mind can control blood vessels and the flow of blood, raise blisters, induce or eliminate severe pain, cause and control lactation, salivation, other sensations and body functions.
Normally a person awakened from a hypnotic trance remembers what happened while hypnotized, although the memory may be suppressed by post hypnotic suggestions, suggestions while hypnotized that can eliminate the memory.
"Post Hypnotic Suggestions"
are instructions made to a hypnotized person, to be acted on after they are awakened.
Hypnosis can be induced by repeated stimulation of reflexes. Examples include blinking lights, the broken line on a highway, the use of music and the 225 lines that scan back and forth on a TV that make up the image (before digital TV).
A hypnotic trance can also be induced by suggestions, ordinarily performed upon a willing patient. Examples include the repeated suggestion to relax, suggesting one imagines a serene place and the use of counting to deepen the trance.
Self-suggestion is capable of producing self-hypnosis or auto-hypnotism. When we (close out eyes and) tell ourselves a story, out loud or in our own minds, we induce a stage of hypnosis on ourselves. I'll explain why these are hypnotic states in one moment.
There are degrees of hypnosis which have been characterized as lethargic, cataleptic and somnambulistic hypnosis or, in other words, light and heavy hypnotic sleep, with corresponding variations in suggestibility.
How does hypnosis work?
When people are in any stage of hypnosis, or REM sleep then the sub-conscious mind is actually awake and functioning, while the conscious mind is not truly awake. The subconscious mind can operate perfectly without your conscious mind interfering. For example, when you are telling a story with your eyes closed and you are completely engrossed in the story you are telling, you are delving into your memory and you are not being critical or analytical of what you are saying. So, Your subconscious mind is very active, but your conscious mind is not participating in the thought process. This is a trance state, and yes, this is a light stage of hypnosis.
Your conscious mind is the critical mind and your analytical mind. It analyzes things and gives you a "consciousness" of your environment.
Your subconscious mind is like a filing cabinet. It stores all the information you have learned or experienced.
REM
stands for
Rapid Eye
Movement.
When we dream and other times when our subconscious mind is active while our eyes are closed and our conscious mind is not alert and active, our eyes balls move under our eyelids very fast.
If one is hypnotized, the subconscious (filing cabinet) mind is kept awake and the conscious (critical and analytical) mind is put to asleep. When this happens, the subconscious mind still functions and operates without worrying about analyzing and criticizing the information requested.
Examples of the most common hypnotic trances we all experience all the time are night time dreams and day dreams. Dreaming occurs when the subconscious mind is awake and running but the conscious mind is not interfering or participating in the thought process.

Can a hypnotist access everything?No. Our subconscious will not allow a hypnotist to access any information you want "locked" out of the hypnotist's access. So, a person that is hypnotized still can make choices as to what they want the hypnotist to free from the subconscious mind.

Can a Hypnotist make me do things against my will?
One of the more common questions I answer after a show is

"How do you know if they are faking?"
I reply, "I can't always. BUT, I am doing a show, so if the person is entertaining and not distracting, I don't care if they are faking sometimes. However, if I see REM going on, I'm usually pretty sure they are not faking!
<ALIGN=LEFT Not normally. The answer is almost always no, but there are rare exceptions on rare occasions. If the answer was YES, we'd be living in a much different world. Geo. Bush would have the UN walking around like Zombies doing his will. Believe me, The USA, Britain and USSR have looked into it extensively, and it does not work.
The subconscious mind will always know the difference between these four ideas, even in the deepest trances:
YES
NO
I don't know
It's none of your business

So, only the information one wants to have accessed can be accessed while in a state of hypnosis. Secrets are safe, you won't commit crimes and no one will do something against their will. As a rule, in the hands of a safe hypnotist everyone is safe, and in the hands of a naive or unscrupulous hypnotist, most of us are still very safe.
Of course, this is just a brief explanation and there are over 1,000 books written on the subject of hypnosis & hypnotherapy plus there are many different areas including:
using hypnosis for therapy
self-hypnosis
criminology and the use of hypnosis
stage hypnosis
past life regression
dream therapy
and more

If you have specific questions, Alan Sands is happy to explain answers to you. However, Alan is an entertainer and is not a doctor and anything he shares with you is to be only used as guidance. If you have medical or psychological reasons for using hypnosis, consulting a professional may be his only advice. More often Alan will recommend books where you can find out more or direct you to people who may be able to answer your specific questions thoroughly.

Thanx Hpnotist for that clear explanation.

Could you give me a simple self hipnosis technique? I'd like to use it to help me establish some trigger mechanism for me to go into Lucid dreaming more frequently and stably.

Sorry if this is in the wrong forum.
I have bwgen, and want to use self-hypnosis, but when you are in the state for it, what do you do? Do you think it to yourself or what?
Help![Sad][?]
