HYPNOSIS THE DESTROYER
Warnings from Psychologists and Psychiatrists:
HYPNOSIS THE DESTROYER
THE TERRIBLE DANGER OF HYPNOSIS
Hypnotism is rapidly becoming a major part of psychological, psychiatric, and professional counseling technique. Medical doctors are also increasingly employing it. Its use has dramatically increased since the development of Ericksonian hypnotism a couple decades ago. Classical (formal) hypnotism required that the client be put into a sleep-like stupor, but Erlcksonian (Informal) hypnosis enables the operator to embed thoughts and feelings during casual conversation, without the client's realizing where they came from. This new method of hypnosis has opened the way whereby, every professionally-trained counselor can do what the psychiatrists used to do: put people Into a hypnotic trance and suggest changes In values, wishes, wants, likes, dislikes, fears, and hopes.
All of the basics of a person's personality and character can be affected through hypnosis. You are a unique combination of information, attitudes, and principles. But all that can be changed through hypnotism.
Your character is your thoughts and feelings combined, both easily changed through hypnosis. "You should keep off from Satan's enchanted ground and not allow your minds to be swayed from allegiance to God. Through Christ you may and should be happy and should acquire habits of self-control. Even your thoughts must be brought into subjection to the will of God and your feelings under the control of reason and religion. Your imagination was not given you to be allowed to run riot and have its own way without any effort at restraint or discipline. lf the thoughts are wrong the feelings will be wrong, and the thoughts and feelings combined make up the moral character. . "-5 Testimonies, 310 (italics ours).
In addition, hypnotism weakens the will and the power of self-control, and those are the two elements that determine the strength of one's character. "Strength of character consists of two things-power of will and power of self-control."-Child Guidance, 161.
WHERE HYPNOSIS ORIGINATED
Hypnosis is basic to the Eastern religions. Just as psychotherapy is taking the West to the East, so hypnosis is having the same effect.
"The reader should not be confused by the supposed differences between hypnosis, Zen, Yoga and other Eastern healing methodologies. Although the ritual for each differs, they are fundamentally the same.” -William Kroger and William Fezler, Hypnosis and Behavior Modification: Imagery Conditioning, 1976, p. 412.
Torrey, a research psychiatrist, tells us this:
"Hypnosis is one aspect of the yoga techniques of therapeutic meditation."- Fuller Torrey, The Mind Game, 1972, p. 70.
Kroger explains that hypnosis is used to bring the subject to the gods of yoga.
