Background in Hypnosis

without comments

Are you always on the lookout for relaxing sounds to play in the background of your hypnosis sessions?

A recent Lifehacker.com post points (or, rather-re-points, as it had covered them before) to a very simple and very cool Web app that generates a wide variety of relaxing sounds and lets you mix them to your personal taste. Choose from drums, flutes, or “vibes”, add up to four choices of sound (birdsong, ocean waves, crickets, etc.), set the volume for each, and let it play.

Go check out Sound Sleeping. (Requires Flash.)

By the way, you can also download MP3 tracks of pre-mixed relaxation for a nominal price.

Natural Tranquility

without comments

Elvis Keith Lester just released a hypnotic screencast. Great mellow music, beautiful photos of Yellowstone National Park, and a compelling hypno-voiceover.

Go experience some Natural Tranquility.

You can get the music from TranceLand.

Free Trance Music

without comments

I received this back in April, but just found it, neglected, among some other e-mail.

Doug O’Brien and Nick Kemp composed and recorded original music for their 2006 collaboration, “How Deep the Rabbit Hole.” While they were at it, they decided to create some music that anyone could use in their trance inductions. The “license” is as follows:

The music is 15 minutes in length. You are free to use it however you choose. We only ask, if you use it for a distributed recording, please give us a music credit. Thanks.

It sounds really cool. Go get it. If you like, let ’em know; maybe they’ll give you some more.

Like him, love him, laugh at him, loathe him…

No matter what your response to Barack Obama, you’ve got to admire his amazing skill with language. His ability to stay both engaging and content-free is astounding.

Here’s a transcript of his convention address. I was just working through it. It’s got everything a hypnotist could want in a trance induction. I wish now that I’d watched it so I could experience his paraverbal and nonverbal stuff too.

(Edited to add: Bert Decker over at Create Your Communication has posted his critique of Obama’s presentation, and it’s worth a look.)

Body position helps you remember

without comments

Once again, we find Milton Erickson was ahead of his time:

A new study adds an unexpected method to the list of ways to spur memories about our past: body position. That’s right: just holding your body in the right position means you’ll have faster, more accurate access to certain memories. If you stand as if holding a golf club, you’re quicker to remember an event that happened while you were golfing than if you position your body in a non-golfing pose.

My S/O pointed me to news of a free telephone session with hypnotist John Morgan. Check out the postscript on this post on the Grasshopper Notes Blog:

I am offering a FREE Hypnosis session via conference call this Thursday night, April 24th at 9 PM EDT and you’re invited. Did I mention the session is FREE? The call is limited to 100 people.

The actual post is pretty cool, too.
