I have been a member of many “Secret Societies” and illuminated organizations. One thing remained a constant with all of them, in order to be a member you were not allowed to be a Hypnotist. It was not until years after I’d left these organizations that I began to understand why. Before we continue we need to define what a hypnosis is. According to the dictionary
“hypnosis |hipˈnōsis| noun the induction of a state of consciousness in which a person apparently loses the power of voluntary action and is highly responsive to suggestion or direction. Its use in therapy, typically to recover suppressed memories or to allow modification of behavior by suggestion, has been revived but is still controversial. • this state of consciousness.”
Now that’s interesting according to the definition hypnosis it seems like it is a way to change and manipulate the way a person thinks. Now why would these supposedly spiritual societies that have received teachings from the ancients reject hypnotists? To be honest it is because any good hypnotist will see right through these organizations spiritual chicanery. This point is perhaps best illustrated by two short clips starring Derren Brown.
It is through the power of our subconscious and suggestion that these deceitful tricks are able to work. It is nothing to be ashamed of as it is just our body’s natural instincts to follow suggestion. I will refer my readers to A Simple Jedi Mind Trick in which I detail a very simple hypnosis or auto-suggestion technique. I will also refer our readers to Pendulum Magic it Just Works . The only thing we will get out of these spiritual organizations is what we put into them. If we let them show us the light then that is what we will see. Magic and the occult is just a way to manipulate and control the subconscious mind. It is in effect the first form of self-help.
