I've been researching hypnosis and hypnotic states of mind as of late. I came across a wonderful channel on youtube where this gentleman (http://www.youtube.com/eddini) has put up many guided hypnotic video's.
I followed along with one of his video's right before work yesterday. I laid down on my bed with my head on a pillow and arms to my side.
I was fully concentrating and imagining everything he said. Then all of a sudden, I could feel myself slip into a deep soundless state of mind. I felt as though I was deep into the darkness of my mind. I could then concentrate and bring my awareness up to the point of hearing the video playing. Then I would slip back down into this altered state. As the video wrapped up, my awareness was coming back and it was harder to stay in that deep state. When Eddini (the video maker) said that I was awake and conscious, I felt as though I was back to normal.
It was really different and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
THEN today, I put the SAME video on again... I was in a more active state of mind at the time and listened to every word he said. It was a wonderful experience as well but I certainly didn't reach the relaxed deep state of mind that I did yesterday...
The most shocking realization I had was that I didn't remember ONE thing that he said in the video!!
Yesterday, I was REALLY hypnotized by Eddini on YOUTUBE!!! hahaha. SO MUCH SUBCONSCIOUS FUN!!!
