    hi from Turkey, nice blog.

    I do not subscribe to the spiritualistic base of hypnosis. I am a stage performer of hypnotism essentially aimed at propagating rationalism and scientific knowledge about extrasensory perceptions. I give below a very brief explanation about the phenomena:

    Hypnotism used to be explained away in the name of supposed supernatural forces; some called it ‘Oedic force,’ others named it ‘animal magnetism’ and yet many explained it as the power that comes through and out of ‘sixth sense.’

    Priests in the temples of ancient Egypt, India and Greece practiced this art through ‘mediums’, for oracular prophesies. Later in the eighteenth century, one Austrian physician named Franz Anton Mesmer widely employed this phenomenon for curing of mental ailments. It is after the name Mesmer that this phenomenon happened to be also called as “mesmerism”, in later years.

    Scientific study of hypnotism started with the work of English surgeon from Manchester, Dr. James Braid who coined the word “hypnotism,” the word having its origin to ‘hypnos’ which means natural sleep. Hypnotism and natural sleep have certain resemblances, but both are not the same.

    Sleep is the resultant impact of the nerve cells in the central nervous system getting inactive, restful and inhibited and the consequential spread of the inhibition to other parts of the brain and to the physic. Sleep-like state can be produced by employing artificial means, say, by the use of narcotic drugs or by directing repeated suggestions or with the help of certain devices the stimuli released by which cause excessive excitation of nerve cells resulting in the introduction of artificial inhibition in one or more than one of the sensory centres. The artificial state of inhibition produced by or through repeated suggestions or through devises other than drugs is called hypnotism.

    Hypnotism is a scientific phenomenon. During hypnotic state, the subject would remain responsive to the words and actions of the hypnotist while the subject would not be responsive to the words of others. There is no mystery in this aspect of the spectrum: During natural sleep as well as during hypnosis, certain points in the brain centers would remain alert, the alert points may be called “sentry posts”.

    The sentry posts get rapport with serious ‘concerns’ of safety of the physic. A mother sleeping with her loved, new born child may not wake up even if one tries to wake her up. But the moment her child starts crying, the mother would abruptly wake up. Such is the sensibility of sentry post.

    Hypnotist gets rapport with the subject or the hypnotized, through the activation of sentry post. This elemental fact is used for treatment of certain mental derangement by specialist therapists. Sentry posts keep suggestions made
    during hypnotic sleep in memory to be remembered and acted upon, on awakening from the trance, in accordance with the suggestions imposed by the Hypnotist. This process is called .post hypnotic suggestions and they would remain in the memory of the hypnotized subject until removed through reverse suggestions.

    Many mental and related physical ailments can be cured through Hypnotism, the principle behind the effectiveness of hypnotic therapy being the work of the sentry post and conditioned reflexes formed through and by repetitive suggestions. Hypnotism has also been employed to reduce the impact of severe pains as well as keeping the physic in anesthesia like state and also for helping pregnant women pleasant delivery devoid of anxiety and pains.

    Hypnotism is not a panacea for all mental or other diseases. Hypnotism need have to be practiced, by properly qualified physicians and or by psychologists who are experts in physiological psychology
