Hypnosis is a consciousness-altering tool. It
allows us to enhance our imagination, overcome
mental blocks and program our minds for positive

Secular-minded health professionals and
hypnotherapists have tried to hijack
hypnotherapy as purely a medical tool claiming
that it has no connection with our spiritual or
mystical side, because they are afraid of being
ridiculed. However, such a limitation is as
absurd as arguing that the human mind is
incapable of appreciating beauty or having
spiritual experiences. Since its beginnings,
hypnosis has been used to enhance altered states
of consciousness leading to psychic and mystical
awareness. It is time to reclaim that heritage.
Since mystical experience is a life-enhancing
one, and hypnotherapy is a life-enhancement
tool, spiritual and mystical hypnosis or
hypnotherapy ought to be acknowledged as a
distinct branch of hypnotherapy. Transpersonal
hypnotherapy covers a wide range of spiritual
techniques including past life regression.
Mystical hypnosis is a specialization within
transpersonal hypnotherapy, that can be used by
hypnotherapists or that can also be used as
self-hypnosis for spiritual exploration.
The course explains the nature of hypnosis, the
conscious and unconscious mind, how to induce a
hypnotic trance, and how to use hypnosis to
access mystical states of consciousness such as
Cosmic Consciousness, Immersion in Light,
Awareness of Perfection, Universal Love and
Cosmic Unity. “Enlightenment” is another term
used to describe such states.
The practie of
entering such states can be greatly beneficial,
to a calm and healthy life and a well-balanced
mind. Information is also given about the
philosophy of suffering and how to overcome it,
and detailed scripts are given that can be
recorded for self-hypnosis use or used as
examples on which you can base scripts of your
own. Using these methods, it is not necessary to
spend years in meditation to achieve mystical
consciousness. Transformation of consciousness
is now achievable by anyone who can enter a
