A Computer Analogy ~
Your brain and body can be compared to the hardware of a computer. Data is stored in the hardware of your brain and body. Like the hardware of a computer, there is limited space in which to store data in the body/brain. However, just as an infinite amount of data can be stored on separate computer discs to be inserted into the hardware of a computer, your mind stores infinite data which, when inserted into the hardware of your body/brain can be accessed for your use. Hypnosis enhances both the storage and retrieval of data. Hypnosis is a kind of "modem" for the brain, body, and mind connection.
There are many levels and uses of hypnosis. Some levels of hypnosis, like hypno-sleep, are impractical for any use other than sleeping. While stage hypnotists like the dramatic effects of pointing at a person and commanding: "SLEEP", the person rarely goes into true hypno-sleep. In true hypno-sleep, the brain waves are not steady and the person will frequently "tune out" sounds, such as the hypnotist's voice. It is very difficult to work with a person who cannot hear or respond. Stage hypnotists know this and are careful not to use this command with people they suspect might really fall into hypno-sleep. A person who seems to "fall asleep" when the hypnotist commands this, is much more likely to be responding to the power of suggestion than to be in actual hypnosis. Stage hypnosis is an exciting blend of the power of suggestion and hypnosis. The difference between the two has to do with the degree of participation of the conscious level of mind.
Commercials and advertisements use the power of suggestion by aiming the messages at the subconscious mind. If your subconscious mind has programming that has convinced it you want or need what is being advertised, you will feel a "pull" or "attraction" to what is being advertised. The conscious mind can block or cancel this pull, simply by thinking "not now" or "not ever". If one is in hypnosis, then the conscious mind is far less likely to interfere with this "pull". Example: You are in a kind of daydreaming state, or a state of deep concentration. (Both of which are levels of hypnosis.) You hear or see or read an ad for a favorite food. Your subconscious says, "Hey, we like that. Let's get it." You will feel a strong desire for that food. Your subconscious may then say, "Oh, but we are ready for bed. Okay, we will get it later." It is likely that you will continue to have a craving for that food until you have it or your conscious mind cancels the craving. This is sometimes easy, sometimes difficult. It depends upon your subconscious programming.
Many think hypnosis can be used to control others. This is only true if a person consciously allows the control, and even then, the subconscious will not allow that person to cross the parameters programmed by the conscious mind as acceptable.
There are many areas of the brain, the body, and the mind. Hypnosis is a means of focusing attention on a particular area. On the other side are suggestions for using hypnosis for studying and testing. If you use these steps every time you study and take tests, you will be amazed at the results. You will study more efficiently and in much shorter times. Remember, your subconscious DOES have perfect memory. All you have to do is train it to store and retrieve information at your conscious command.
Helpful hint: Baroque music of 60 beats per minute (the average heart beat) is excellent for enhancing study. Mozart frequently uses this beat in his music and a study at the University of California showed listening to Mozart's "Piano Concerto For Two Pianos In D Major" increased the IQ of students participating in the study. While scores were temporary, the music seemed to "open up" the electrical pathways in the brain used for cognitive thinking and problem solving.
