The thumbnails below (Photo 1 thru Photo 4) are of myself and my subject in 1991 as we demonstrated the Esdaile State and asked for volunteers to validate the various effects. Click on each for a larger view.
Photo 2: You see her supported between two chairs; one chair supporting her head and the other supporting the heals of her feet, while the muscles of her body are not contracted but relaxed.
Photo 5: I am regressing her to 5 years of age.
Photo 6: She is settling in to the personality of herself at 5 years of age.
Photo 7: She has emerged as herself at 5 years of age.
I am pointing to audience members as I ask her who each one is and she is naming them as each of her toys.
Photo 8: We are continuing to do the same with the audience members.
Photos 9 & 10: I have regressed her to another life that she lived prior to this life and surfaced the personality of that time.
Her past personality answered questions that some of the audience members were asking.
The two thumbnails below are of myself and my subject in 1998 as we demonstrated Catatonic Responses and general anesthesia.
Photo 1: I am showing Catatonic Responses that can only be duplicated in the deepest part of the Esdaile State.
Photo 2: I am demonstrating general anesthesia with the use of hemostats, the subject doesn't even flinch when I placed on the underside of her arm.
The six thumbnails below show various stages of hypnosis that an individual can achieve and general anesthesia.
However, it is not completely true. The truth is that, yes things can be achieved in this state but, the results are not long lasting and in most cases must be reinforced over and over.
Depth is the only answer but, most who use hypnosis for therapy are not taught how to have their clients achieve it because they do not know themselves. Nor does the individuals who teach them.
Helping someone to achieve depth takes time and in some cases many sessions. But, I feel that if a hypnotist or therapist really cares for their clients, the ethical thing to do is to take that time and do diligence. Of course, this is not the way most view things and are just doing their best to make a fast buck.
This state cannot be anchored by a verbal keyword for instant return. A traditional induction must be used each time, which is a complete waste of time for the client and therapist.
The person can also produce positive and negative hallucinations and the hypnotist, if not careful, could cause false memories to occur during this time. However, it is profound somnambulism that is most effective and beneficial for the client and therapist. Profound somnambulism is different than traditional somnambulism.
The person in this state can produce real local anesthesia through the use of proper verbal suggestions. Once the person is taught how to achieve this state on their own, they can produce real self local anesthesia without the hypnotist every again being present. This state is excellent for minor and some major surgeries.
This state can be anchored by a verbal keyword for instant return at another time and the keyword never has to be reinforced, if it installed properly.
It is not that the person does not want to speak in this state, the person cannot speak or voluntarily move any part of their body.
The reason for this is because all of the signals going to the voluntary motor nerves are turned off during the time in this state. The person can hear but, is not able to voluntarily respond or move.
This state can be anchored by a verbal keyword for instant return at another time and the keyword never has to be reinforced, if it is installed properly.
This is the only true test for the Esdaile State and all four limbs must lock by these muscles. The limbs can remain in this position for lengthy periods without the effect of muscle burn even though gravity is bearing down on the limbs and a person in the normal waking state would experience muscle burn within a short time.
Now, general anesthesia is present automatically. If a person cannot achieve this state and all four limbs display rigidity, they have not achieved the Esdaile State.
This state is achieved in silence and only through the use of what I call, "limb tugs" but, it must be done properly. This state cannot be anchored by a verbal keyword for instant return.
If an emergency should about to occur, the person will emerge just before it ensues and be able to know instantly what to do to take care of that emergency. The sense of time is greatly distorted and the person automatically has general anesthesia, this is the most perfect state for most major surgeries.
If this state is used during surgery, the person can achieve this state all by them self without a hypnotist being present. They will remain in this state throughout the surgery and will not emerge until it is safe for them to do so.
This state can be anchored by a verbal keyword for instant return at another time and the keyword never has to be reinforced.
In this state the body heals six to ten times the individual's normal healing rate. Anesthesia is achieved naturally just by entering this state.
