What Hypnosis Teaches Us about Doubt and Affirmations

Published

on

According to the Collins English Dictionary, ‘hypnosis is a state in which a person seems to be asleep but can still see, hear, or respond to things said to him/her.’ Health professionals use hypnosis to heal patients since the mind fully responds to anything suggested to it during hypnosis.

There’s a famous story of a boy who was cured of Congenital Ichthyosis through hypnosis. The physician cured him by hypnotizing him, and telling him that his skin was healing.

Such accounts have led to the realization that the mind fully responds to what it’s told during hypnosis because hypnosis relaxes it hence preventing it from doubting anything suggested to it.

Hypnosis thus proves that the mind only responds to our suggestions in the absence of doubt. For this reason, it will be almost impossible for you to cure yourself of a certain disease if you regularly affirm that you are healing yet you highly doubt your affirmations.

When affirming (suggesting to the mind), you must believe that what you are affirming is true. For example, if you wake up in the morning and affirm that you are powerful, you must believe that you are a powerful being and let your mind do its job.

I used to wonder why my affirmations never worked. Luckily, hypnosis made me realize that they never worked because I doubted them. For instance, when I woke up in the morning and said, ‘I am the greatest blogger alive,’ I always doubted this statement immediately hence preventing my mind from acting on it.

With that in mind, always know that whatever you suggest to your mind without doubting will come true. If you always say to yourself that you are too old, or you are a failure, without a doubt, the mind will create situations that will make you an old failure.

In conclusion, hypnosis shows us that the mind often responds to our affirmations, and it can bring into reality whatever is suggested to it only when we don’t doubt. Therefore, we must replace our doubts with faith because only when we don’t doubt will our mind effectively tap into the universal mind and attract situations and things that will help us reach our desired state.

‘As you believe, so shall it be done unto you.’ – Jesus Christ, Christian ‘Savior.’

The Problem with the Christian Concept of God

The Problem with the Christian Concept of God

The Biblical God, ‘was a God of wrath and vengeance sitting over the world. This God demanded an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth, and only the blind unquestioning, and complete obedience of his creation satisfied this universal autocrat.’ – Manly P. Hall: The Wisdom of the Knowing Ones.

Born in a Christian family, I loved reading the Bible and watching Biblical films – that my mum bought– because I wanted to understand how God works. My interest in the Christian God resulted in me earning an A in Christian Religious Education (CRE), a subject that claimed to expose God’s revelations.

However, I started doubting the Christian God after studying ancient spiritual philosophy and embracing deep thinking. I realized that whatever created the world is a mysterious, impersonal, unknowable force, and therefore, the knowable Christian God was created by the religious leaders of the Christian age.

These leaders believed God behaved like man, and thus created an egotistical God (If you’ve read the Bible, I believe you’ve noticed how the Christian God possesses egoic behavior).

This God forces people to worship him and becomes angry when people worship other gods.

For instance, in Exodus 20, he becomes mad when the Israelites bow down to an idol, for he tells Moses, ‘I have seen these people, and they are stiff-necked people. Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them.’ Besides this, he promises to throw those who don’t obey him in eternal fire.

He also refers to those who worship him as ‘his chosen ones’, and orders the killing of anyone who attacks these folks. For instance, he orders Saul to eradicate Amalek, an enemy of Israel. According to Samuel 15, he says, ‘Go now, attack Amalek, and deal with him and all that he has. Do not spare him, but kill men and women, children and infants, oxen and sheep, camels and assess.’

Besides being egotistical, another problem I noticed, is that the Christian God lives far away from the earth. He dwells in heaven while we dwell on the earth. This concept of God is responsible for the belief that God is separate from man. It has made people believe they are servants of God, rather than part of him.

Many Christians will be offended by this post, but I don’t care because I’m writing the TRUTH, which will eventually set us free. My Christian readers must know that their concept of God is man-made, and it was created by egoic men who claimed to be spiritual.

The true God, our Creator, is unknowable as Hermes Trismegistus, the wisest man ever, claimed, ‘God is Spirit, which in itself is unknowable and undefinable, but which may be considered and thought of us an Infinite Mind.

No one, including ancient spiritual masters, could define God, and no one will ever know where he came from, what he is, and how he created us. We might only know his principles by studying nature, but we’ll never know he’s personality because we have limited minds. However, we might fully know him when we die because after death, our souls might dissolve into his consciousness.

Is There an Afterlife?

Is There an Afterlife?

I’ve always doubted the idea of an afterlife because I compared death to sleep. However, my beliefs about the afterlife changed after studying ancient cultures and modern religion.

I realized that most ancient cultures, for instance, the Africans, Arabians, and Greeks, believed in an afterlife despite living far apart.

The Greeks believed the soul survived death and went to Hades. Moreover, they believed good Greeks enjoyed life after death while evil Greeks were tormented.’ Also, all African cultures believed their ancestors’ spirits survived death, and they regularly poured libation to them. Some African cultures even performed burial ceremonies and rituals that ensured their beloved ones traveled safely to the spirit world.

Besides ancient cultures, modern religions believe in life after death. For instance, both Muslims and Christians believe we survive death, and our current actions determine our experience after death.  As well, Buddhists believe in the afterlife because death only leads to the end of the body, but not the spirit. They believe that an individual can be reborn after death.

With that in mind, can it be possible that an afterlife doesn’t exist considering that ancient cultures living far away from each other believed in life after death? Did religions and ancient cultures make up the idea of life after death?

I believe the intuitive abilities of ancient/deeply religious folks allowed them to realize the existence of an afterlife, and I support them because I recently discovered that we have a spirit-self besides our egoic and physical self. I think death only eradicates the physical and egoic-self but fails to eliminate the spirit-self.

Also, the fact that we are energy beings forces me to support the idea of an afterlife because as Einstein said, ‘Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.’ Maybe we survive death because it only alters our form by turning us into pure spiritual entities without a body.

Furthermore, my belief in the spirit world forces me to support life after death because this world allows souls to experience life without a human body.

Anyway, we’ll never know if an afterlife truly exists. But we must strive to live life to the fullest because, if life after death exists, we might regret failing to live up to our full potential. Maybe our eyes will open when we die, and we’ll realize that we stressed over trivial things instead of enjoying life in a magical and blessed world.

Peace Be With You
