The other night, I got to thinking about zombies…
In fantasy settings, they’re easy to justify. Dark magic animates their bodies and they follow the will of their necromancer.
In more scientific settings, there are more hoops to jump through.
I mean, you don’t have to justify anything. You can easily say this serum turns folks into zombies and leave it at that. But it pays to offer at least some explanation.
Like with 28 Days Later, how the zombies are normal humans with anger issues.
(Which doesn’t explain most of their behaviour – like why they don’t attack each other.)
With the Resident Evil movies, a thermodynamics-defying virus reduces folks to their basic instincts.
(At least, kinda. Hunger lies somewhere between fear and physical intimacy, but those zombies don’t show much of either…)
Anyway, it got me thinking:
Strip away the conscious mind, rationality and personality, and all you’re left with is violence, anger and hunger?
That sounds pretty Freudian to me.
I’m not going to pretend humans don’t have dark, violent impulses in our unconscious minds. Obviously, we do.
But your unconscious is so much more than just that.
All those times when you knew just what to say… when you dug deep and surprised yourself… when your instincts pulled you out of harm’s way…
That’s how Ericksonian hypnotists view the unconscious mind.
It’s a source of light more than a source of darkness.
Reduce an Ericksonian to their unconscious instincts and you don’t create a monster.
You create something special.
Someone who’s more human than the rest of us.
I’ve met folks like this. They could enter an altered state of mind and become someone literally mesmerising. Simply being in their presence makes you feel like a better person.
Like anything’s possible.
Now, I’ll admit I’m not there yet. I have my moments, but it’s not part of my nature.
But every time I learn something new about the mind…
And every time I do hypnosis drills…
… I get a lot closer.
So, enough playing. Let’s get down to your next step – how to begin this journey for yourself.
I designed a program to take someone from a complete novice to an expert meditator/self-hypnotist.
It doesn’t matter if you ‘can’t be hypnotised’ or you’re a seasoned meditator. Either way, you’ve never seen anything like this before.
It mirrors my own journey from struggling to close my eyes to being able to enter a meditative state instantly.
To reach a state where energy, focus and confidence flow naturally.
And to doing things with your mind that even some monks are afraid to try.
You can see just how enormous this training program is right here:
