Hallucinations in the waking state, in fever, in narcotic and hypnotic states, are like impressions produced by dreams. Objects are seen, heard, tasted, smelled and touched when there are no such objects as on the solid physical plane. Hallucinations are of many kinds and are produced in many different ways.

Hypnosis and trance states
The mystic achieves hallucinations by gaining control of his own dissociative mechanisms; perhaps this is a form of self-hypnosis. Such individuals can accomplish an astonishing withdrawal from the environment by prolonged intense concentration (e.g., by gazing at some object). The hallucinations may be of the type in which the person perceives his “inner self” to leave his body to view himself (autoscopic hallucination) or to be transported to new surroundings. Alternatively, the hallucinations may take the form of unique visual imagery; for example, the yantra is a visual hallucination of a coloured, geometrical image that appears at a level of trance of the sort experienced by practitioners of Yoga.

hypnotism and hallucinations
Hypnotism is known under many names, including hypnosis, neurohypnosis, neurypnology, artificial somnambulism, and Braidism. All these terms are used to denote the procedure or the state induced by that procedure, by means of which a hypnotist establishes rapport in a receptive subject, so that the subject is persuaded to experience changes in consciousness, perception, cognition, emotion, volition, and/or motor behaviour in accordance with the hypnotist’s suggestions.
When subjects hypnotize themselves, this is known as autohypnosis. When they are hypnotized by a third person, i.e. a hypnotist, the term heterohypnotism is used. Conceptually as well as phenomenologically, hypnotic states are related to other states of altered consciousness such as rapture, ecstasy, dissociation, trance, and somnambulism. Continue reading

Warnings from Psychologists and Psychiatrists:
HYPNOSIS THE DESTROYER
THE TERRIBLE DANGER OF HYPNOSIS
Hypnotism is rapidly becoming a major part of psychological, psychiatric, and professional counseling technique. Medical doctors are also increasingly employing it. Its use has dramatically increased since the development of Ericksonian hypnotism a couple decades ago. Classical (formal) hypnotism required that the client be put into a sleep-like stupor, but Ericksonian (Informal) hypnosis enables the operator to embed thoughts and feelings during casual conversation, without the client’s realizing where they came from. This new method of hypnosis has opened the way whereby, every professionally-trained counselor can do what Continue reading
