Elusive Trance

CIrce corner scroll 4The desire to drop deeply into trance is often made stronger with each relaxing experience.  But for some of us, achieving a trance state may seem elusive in the beginning.

I recently had an email on this topic.  The writer has listened to a number of hypnosis files but not yet achieved the state of erotic hypnosis he desires.  He has been told that his very analytical mind could be an obstacle. Unfortunately,  some people with an analytical mind do have trouble going into trance, especially if they have not yet experienced it.  Don’t be discouraged!  Being able to go into a trance is a learn-able skill, and with practice, most people can get better and better over time.

It’s possible you may already have experienced trance and not realize it. It is very difficult to know what being in a trance feels like.  I have often had people who were in a deep trance, wake up and refuse to believe they had been successful. If you can put yourself into a comfortable position, relax your body, ‘shut down’ your mind and close your eyes, then you are already in a light trance–simply by taking those simple steps.

My advice is to find a file that you enjoy listening to, and while listening, try to ‘quiet’ your mind.  As you get better at doing so, you will soon develop the skill of going into trance.For example, do you have trouble getting to sleep at night?  The process of relaxing into sleep and going into trance are similar, so if you’ve developed techniques that help you fall asleep, try using a modified version of them to get into trance.  Another idea is to task your brain with something to keep it busy, so that it eventually becomes tired. For example, count backwards from 1000 by 3’s while listening to a file.  When you find yourself unable to continue counting, or losing your place, you have succeeded.  Or you may find that focusing your eyes on a spot on a wall or ceiling and trying to keep them open might work for you.

At some point in the future, I may record a file especially on this topic, for those of you new to erotic hypnosis.  In the mean time, keep trying–enjoy the files. Listen to my voice and enjoy the erotic suggestions–just enjoy them.  You may be succeeding and not even know it.
