Meditation & Hypnosis
Using the law of attraction can and will pull anything you could imagine to you using just the power of your mind. That sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it? It’s so easy to do too, even for those struggling with actually trusting the universe to deliver.
Using the law of attraction can and will pull anything you could imagine to you using just the power of your mind. That sounds pretty awesome, doesn’t it? It’s so easy to do too, even for those struggling with actually trusting the universe to deliver. You can meditate, be hypnotized or even do it yourself! Self-hypnotization is a great tool to help give you more of a sense of autonomy (you’re reprogramming your mind and subconscious ALL on your own!) when manifesting. Being hypnotized by another person, though, does work just as well if you find you can’t or prefer to not do it yourself. Meditation is a great personal self-help tool as well, not only to aid in your manifestation endeavors, it’s a great thing to do that does help overall emotional + mental health and growth.
Meditation and hypnosis are very similar, yes, and they do help increase mindfulness and opening up the subconscious. However, not taking into account self-hypnotism, to differentiate between the two concepts, meditation is a self-induced state with full self-awareness. In comparison with hypnosis, you are usually being hypnotized by another person, and hypnosis puts you in a trance-like state which can be amnesiac. Hypnosis, as opposed to meditation, usually has an end goal in mind, something specific to target to try to “reprogram” or override. A hypnotist by the name of Richard Barker (based in Orlando, FL) has put it simply, “meditation is deep relaxation and hypnosis is deep relaxation with added suggestion”. Meditation is a life-long practice that must be kept up to keep results coming, whereas a single hypnosis session can reprogram the deep subconscious which is usually inaccessible to us in most or all other situations. No amount of meditating can reprogram your subconscious the way hypnosis does, but the mindfulness that it inevitably always brings forth will make manifesting much easier for you than it might have been otherwise.
Both practices aid in manifestation amazingly, and help treat anxiety disorders, depression, chronic pain, insomnia, etc., but when it comes to statistics and medical research and understanding, meditation does trump hypnosis. Looking at both concepts in their purest form, they can both be described as “total concentration on a single train of thought”. You can meditate in many ways, it doesn’t always have to be one track minded, but when it comes to manifesting, that one track may be something to hold onto, anyway!
