There are many theories about the mind, spirit,
soul and body. We donít have theories. The great advantage of
being a hypnotist is helping people get their conscious mind and
its theories out of the way so one can ASK the mind, spirit, soul,
and body about themselves. The advantage to being a well trained
hypnotist is one can tell when the conscious mind is or is not
interfering in the altered state and to what degree. The advantage
to being a professional hypnotist for more than a decade (and
in Dr. Hughís case FIVE decades) is one has listened to thousands
of minds, souls, spirits, past life personalities, "inner children",
Higher Selves, cells, viruses, bacteria and germs speak. Beats
theories. Of course answers lead to more and more questions, but
that, too, beats theories.
The greatest "drawback" for many who are interested
in spirit is the lack of knowledge they have of the mind. Many
people are intrigued by numbers that are meaningful to them, for
example. Some like 444. For others itís 111. Or 333. Or any series
of numbers. Once the subconscious mind becomes aware a set of
numbers is meaningful to the conscious level of mind, the subconscious
will draw the conscious attention to those numbers. "Look" says
the subconscious as it draws the attention of the conscious mind
to these numbers on a clock, or a license plate, or an address
or wherever they appear. "Itís the numbers that you like!" Since
the subconscious controls the body, it alerts the attention of
the conscious easily by turning the head, focusing the eyes or
even waking the conscious mind to point out it is 4:44 A.M.
This is an old hypnotistís "trick" that is still
used - knowingly or unknowingly - by many organizations to convince
their members they are being "called" or "guided".
On the other hand, once the subconscious and the
Higher Self realize something is meaningful to the conscious mind,
they can use this for communicating with the conscious level of
mind. A person who believes 333 is a guiding omen, for example,
contemplates taking a job when a car drives by with 333 in the
license plate. This can be guidance from the subconscious and/or
Higher Self both of which know the conscious level will take this
as an affirmative sign.
The "trick" is knowing whether what one sees or
hears of omens and signs is guidance or is the subconscious pointing
out what one likes to see and hear. Thus the importance of taking
a sign or omen as a signal to "quiet the conscious mind" and listen
to the inner self. Thus the importance of working with oneís dreams,
of meditating daily. Incidentally, a meditation of silence in
which one moves into unconsciousness is not a time of "nothingness".
During this period one is in the presence of and communicating
with mind and spirit at levels of vibration that are too high
(fast) for conscious awareness. How foolish to believe that conscious
awareness is the only reality of mind and spirit or even body,
as the astral double of the body easily travels into other dimensions
of space and time.
Spirit communicates through light impulses of thought.
The mind translates these light impulses into symbolic images,
such as dream imagery. The mind then translates these images into
the language it has been taught the conscious level prefers. While
there are many universal symbolic images the mind uses, the mind
also uses many personalized symbols. Ideally, one learns the symbolic
imagery of oneís own mind. (Pendulums, which are muscle response
tools, can be helpful to this. See How To Use A Pendulum WISELY
on our website.) How is one to find in a dream book, for example,
the meaning of seeing a vision of oneself standing in front of
a full length mirror holding a large calendar so that the dates
appear backwards in the mirror? One must pretty much ask the subconscious
what it meant by that. (A Ďyes" response to the conscious desire
to reverse the physiological aging of the body.) However, one
can also train the subconscious mind to use the symbols in a dream
book. Still the subconscious will toss in personalized elements..
To understand spirit, one must understand the mind.
To understand time, space, fate, destiny, the psyche, psychic
abilities, free will, manifestations, brain chemistry, physical
dysfunction, and on and on and on one must understand the mind.
While we have learned a great deal about the mind - and spirit
- from minds and spirits, LIGHT is writing a great deal more and
in much greater depth. It truly is a book to change human awareness
and understanding. We are anxious to get it "out there". SoÖ.back
to the book.
