I have been looking at the art of self hypnosis lately and I came to wonder if it would fall under the term spiritual body modification.
The technique I have tried is described here: http://nlp-coach.co/UploadedIm…..5B1%5D.pdf

I know it is not a physical manipulation of the body that results in change state of consciousness, so I came to thinking if active manipulation of one's own mind would indeed fall under the category of body modification/manipulation. I am unsure of what my opinion really is about it. My mind is split on this matter.

What are your thoughts about this?

Regards, peace and love!

I would think that it would fall under spiritual ritual or something like that, but modification I don't think so. I'm not sure that any sort of meditative state counts as modification. But that's just me.

I tend to agree. I have this idea that spiritual body modification/manipulation is a physical thing that affects the mental state. However, I think the conscious act of hypnotizing yourself is a form of manipulation, but maybe more of mind than of body. I guess it depends how separate we see the mind and body as being.

I think it's an interesting question.
I suppose i would say it is a mental modification (training one's mind to do this, or influencing the mind in manner which alters it), but it has a profound impact on the body.
Really it highlights the mind – body – spirit triad, and how each influences the next.

How have you found this technique Martyn? I find NLP a bit hit and miss for me.

Well, I found that this exact method worked surprisingly well for me. I never even got to finish the second part, where I had to imagine seeing, hearing and feeling things, before I was in trance. I was lying on my bed and suddenly I felt my whole body floating. At the same time, I really really really had to concentrate in order to move my limbs – I am not sure if they even moved or if it was just in my mind. It was a most interesting experience and when I feel ready and balanced enough to do it again I certainly will. Now I know what I am getting in to and I think I will be able to relax my mind more. I got a bit scared from the feeling of not being able to move.
A side note: I found it in Danish and used that one when I hypnotized myself. This English version I have posted is not as comprehensive as the Danish one I got. It seems like the English one is not written for beginners, so it might be difficult to understand.

I have that feeling all the time when I'm somewhere between sleep and awake. I freak myself out because I can't move. So I have to concentrate really hard and jerk myself awake to assure myself that I can move. I have never voluntarily gone into this state, though. Seems too scary to me.

Perhaps a body modification done along with this type of hypnosis would be interesting. I'd like to hear the outcome if anyone has done anything like that.

I think something like that should be done with extreme caution and loads of knowledge about hypnosis.

I am in agreement with Kristen about it being more spiritual than body manipulation. The mind and body are connected in so much that you can manipulate the body and the mind follows, but it gets a bit hazy when it comes to mind manipulating the body. I have been working with trance styles and spiritual/mental healing for well over a decade. I have tried NLP in the past for a few things with little results, definitely nothing physically noticeable even in the realm of healing.

But I will go and say that I fully support some method of trancework (the level and technique you're comfortable with) with modification. It takes the experience to a-whole-nother level.
