Daily Dedroidify: Mind Techniques

Daily Dedroidify: Mind Techniques

A page I started but never finished about Paraliminal & Binaural tech, Hypnosis and NLP. I'll try to fix that soon and will repost it then.

Here's an interesting text about hypnosis. For more on the above topics (but not that much or useful info, will try to add more soon), please click the article link.

How hypnosis got eclipsed in psychology:
"The young Sigmund Freud studied with Liebault and Bernheim at the Nancy School and initially used hypnosis in his practice. In the end, Freud stopped using hypnosis. The reason declared publicly was that a young female patient had jumped up and kissed him. Freud professed to be shocked and concluded that hypnosis was far too volatile to use. The little known history of hypnosis records a different reason why Freud stopped using hypnosis: his cocaine usage had ruined his gums, and his false teeth did not fit well, causing him not to speak well enough to induce trance easily.

In competition with an excellent hypnotist named Breuer, Freud invented 'talking therapy.' Freud said that his talking therapy would not be a therapy for the poor. It would take 100 to 300 hours to effect a cure. His talking therapy became psychoanalysis and this changed the history of European psychology. Freudian psychoanalysis became the rage in psychology and it became inappropriate to use any other techniques. Consequently, hypnosis was eclipsed."
From Tad James' Hypnosis: A Comprehensive Guide - Producing Deep Trance Phenomena

"All successful communication is hypnosis."
Milton H. Erickson

about NLP: "It's not a therapy group, it's a training session - if you want to go to therapy, well, we can recommend some therapists who are very reliable, why some of their clients have seen them for 20 and 30 years." :p
Richard Bandler
