Today I gave my lecture at The UK Hypnosis Convention. Around 135 attended.
The topic was self-hypnosis.
In short the science suggests that we do not need to do an induction to respond to suggestion. And that we are in fact always 'on' and responsive to suggestion.
We can get better as subjects by modelling highly hypnotisable people.
Some of the references I shared with those who attended are below - including one of my favourite books 'The Psychology of Consciousness' by William Farthing, which you can find online for free.
References from my talk.
Creative Imagination Scale - This is useful to self-assess your current skill as a subject.
The Psychology of Consciousness by William Farthing PDF - Read it all, especially the chapter on Altered States.
Read this for a great summary of psychosomatic phenomena.
