How To Hypnotize Someone Covertly
Whilst I could explain how to hypnotize someone covertly, I have already written an entire course about that subject matter and therefore find no need to go over such a plethora of topics here. Instead, we will look at some of the more traditional aspects of hypnosis. I leave you now in the more than capable hands of the author James Loryea.
Since man began assembling, some few have As to
spent their lives in trying to comprehend the most science
incomprehensible of all beings, — man. Knowing how to hypnotize
someone as complex as man would of course be a great task.
The net result of all their work and discoveries has resulted
in nothing but theory, and that not worth the candle.
With all of our alleged knowledge the
few truths we have are of but little value. The
myriads of theories are so impracticable that I
often wonder why and how the "authorities" ob-
tain their titles. The authorities of a hundred
years ago are the laughing stock of to-day.
Up to fifty years ago man was bled as a cure for
every disease ; to-day they claim he is full of bugs
that require slaughtering and try to make of him
a bacilli abattoir. They write tomes of books on
"mind," and how to hypnotize someone,
yet nowhere can I find it comprehensively
defined. Everyone prides himself on his will
power, yet I must own that such a thing which is
so ambiguously defined is incomprehensible to me.
Volumes are written as to hearing, seeing, smell-
ing, feeling and tasting, and yet no one seems to be
able to grasp the true significance of these terms.
Crime is punished, yet more penitentiaries are
yearly required. Our alienists, truly foreigners to
their subjects, know all (?) about the brain and
with the greatest assurance pronounce upon man's
sanity, yet offer us no cure, and our institutions for
the insane are too small for the ever increasing
demands upon them. We know the effect, need
no experts, why does not some one demonstrate
the cause. As to sensational murder trials our most
persistence learned and wise doctors go on the stand as
many experts — whatever that may mean — swearing
directly opposite to one another, and still maintain
their standing in their profession and the com-
munity. If they know anything, how is it possible
for the truth to be in both of two contradictory
assertions. They study in the same schools, from
the same books and from the same "authorities,"
yet one says "yes," the other "no." Verily, gen-
tlemen, you must lack a true premise.
Effect, man comprehends fairly well, but as to
cause our most learned scientists seem to have no
conception. Indeed, learning how to hypnotize someone
has only become a relatively recent study.
Now, dear reader, if you would know
a bit of truth follow me. I am a graduate of no
great college; am professor in no great institution;
have been exposedmany times, yet truth is,
was, and always will be, and year after year my
following increases. If you will follow through
the ensuing pages, unsophisticated as I am, I will
' try to teach you something about man — a mere
machine; his every thought and action forced,
possessing no will power, and in no way respon-
sible for his actions. For twelve years I have
studied nightly from ten to twenty-five hypnotized
subjects and have found that they are ruled by the
same general law as the non-hypnotized man. In
other words, a hypnotized subject is a slowed-
down machine which one knowing how, can watch
each and every movement of, and thereby compre-
hend cause and effect. Through a hypnotized
subject we can learn how "normal" man is forced
to act. Consequently, we can thoroughly analyze
the whys and wherefores of every act performed
by a subject while in hypnosis, during which time
I believe the cerebrum to be entirely inactive.
The cerebrum is like the receiving or correlating
mechanism of the phonograph ; after the thought
is registered in the ganglion of the Abdominal
Brain it is then purely automatic and free from the
cerebrum, which is the realizing brain. Every-
thing we do and say is purely automatic — an effect.
The babe at birth fails to withdraw its foot when
tickled. After that action is associated with the
peculiar sensation, the action always takes place
when the sensation is produced, it being purely
automatic, otherwise, a result or transformation of
the cause. After the babe has learned to speak
the word "papa," whenever the environment forces
the desire for father, automatically the word is said
without any predetermination.
Everything in life is a combination of attributes;
i. e., one thing an impossibility.
The attributes of which any object is composed
are of interest to us only as they affect our senses.
The word "tree," if disassociated with our sense
impressions, would mean nothing, but when its
form (sight) and use (feeling) are associated with
its name (sound), we for the first time have a com-
prehension of what in the English language is
known as a tree. A foreigner, unable to under-
stand our language, coming to this country and
being asked for a match would have no conception
of what we were talking about.
All matter to be conceived must affect two
senses; to be comprehended it must affect three
or more. A cigar cannot be thoroughly compre-
hended with less than five. It has form, equaling
sight; use, equaling feeling; a name, equaling
sound; taste and smell. It is not necessary for
man to comprehend the material of which it is
made, or the skill that made it. The last two are
inconsequential to him, other than in producing
the desired effect on the senses. Therefore, all
matter equals in comprehension the degree to
which it affects man's different senses, and if man
can only comprehend through the effect on his
senses, that comprehension which is called a
thought, must likewise be a combination ; hence,
I will define a thought to be izvo or more associated
ideas, an idea being a percept through any of the
senses. The more ideas associated the more com-
prehensive the alleged thought.
Matter is comprehensible only in the degree to
which it affects the senses ; to be conceived it must
affect two, to be comprehended, three. Form is
comprehensible (when acquired) only when it af-
fects sight and feeling, and a child must not only
hear the word "round" but also feel of the object.
The same with "straight," "square," et cetera. The
round object through sight must transform itself
into a feeling memory. Form is the outline of
matter, and as nothing but matter is appreciable
Nothing but matter is comprehensible to man.
The five senses to be impressed must be stimu-
lated, and nothing but matter will produce the
excitation necessary. Energy can move only
through matter by disturbing matter; or, in other
words, "nothing" is impossible and incomprehensi-
ble. Therefore, there is nothing appreciable but
matter. Man can conceive of nothing that he has
not experienced, and as all so-called thinking is
but the correlation or passing through one's mind
the experiences associated, and as they have neces-
sarily been the product of matter, nothing else is
comprehensible. Consequently, man can conceive
of nothing greater nor less than his individual
experiences. It is impossible to lift him to your
comprehension, you must drop to his.
If I speak to you of the "Law of Nature," what
sense-experience have you a memory of to be
aroused by the utterance of the phrase "Law of
Nature"? None. But if I tell you that the
farmer ploughed the ground, sowed the seed, the
Heavens gave forth rain ; he then hoed around the
seed, a sprout came up, and by more cultivation
the sprout matured into a stalk of corn, the corn
was then harvested ; you would say "Ah, well, the
farmer did all that. I fail to see what the 'Law of
Nature' did," because you can comprehend noth-
ing that does not affect your senses. If you want to
know how to hypnotize someone, this is a concept
you must understand.
While lecturing in New York City two years
ago, a very estimable lady, whose children were
reared in a nursery and lacked many of the usual
experiences of children of middle-class families,
came to me and said :
"Mr. Santanelli, can you cure my boy of a very
"Madam, what is the habit ?"
"He enjoys putting the cat on the hot stove to
see it dance."
"How long will it take you?"
"One-quarter of a minute."
My good reader, can you tell me what was done ;
if so, why? What ideas were associated in this lad's
mind as to the stove and cat? The different ac-
tions of the cat and nothing else. The stove be-
ing the force (suggestion) and the dancing of the
cat the result. The lad lacked a memory. The moment
memory there was given him a feeling memory, he no longer
cared to see the cat dance on the stove. His
ringer was held on the stove until it was blistered,
which associated in his "mind" through the proper
sense that heat produced pain, and substituted
a memory of pain for the memory of the pleasure
of seeing the cat dance.
While in New York City, on Sunday mornings I
attended an independent church, whose minister or
lecturer is beyond all question one of the cleverest
logicians of the day. On one Sunday in particular
he preached a sermon claiming that the right
religion has yet to be offered man ; that the founda-
tion of all doctrines so far offered us has been based
upon a material premise; that the right founder
will offer us one built entirely upon a spiritual
basis. Such a thing is an impossibility, inasmuch
as the spiritual is incomprehensible. The moment
that one begins speaking of the spiritual he is using
mere idle words, inasmuch as the spiritual has
never affected any of his senses, hence he has no
memory of its action ; therefore, no ideas are prop-
erly associated, and the word possesses no mean-
ing — his utterances are purely conjectural.
I speak to you of a "thingamagig," which is
mere sound, arousing no thought in your "mind."
I show it to you and thereby associate sound —
thingamagig — with sight — its form. I then teach
you its use — feeling — and you comprehend it.
The two ideas will give you a conception, but it
requires the third to get a comprehension. I
touch you. Can you help thinking of it ? I show
you my watch, and you think of it. You hear a
sound, you think of it ; you smell or taste some-
thing, and think of it ; you have no control nor in
any manner can you prevent the consciousness or
the realization of the senses so affected.
Man does not "think," he realizes. Thinking is
the transforming of energy (suggestion). I pinch
you ; it has happened and is registered irrespective
of your "will power," and when registered, you
realize it. You see my hand move towards you;
you see on my face an expression which arouses
the thought (associated ideas) of being pinched,
the alleged pain and the avoidance of it through
the action of withdrawing your limb, which is but
the transforming of the energy (suggestion) taken
in through the eye and voiced in your action, all
being done before you realize it, the transforming of
the thought into reality. This is the key to know the correct
ways to hypnotize people.
The "mind" is the realizing intelligence, and the actual mind
is like the transformer of electricity in the main
power station that receives one kind of electric cur-
rent and sends out another. Into what action the
received current will be transformed, depends on
the ideas (currents) previously associated. The
degree of action and its rapidity depends on the
number of senses affected and the degree of force.
Therefore, your thoughts are forced on you by
your environment, and are the transformation of
the suggestion; hence, man is a creature of his
environment. Now, as I have defined a sugges-
tion to be anything that arouses an action, any-
thing that affects any of your five senses must be a
suggestion ; therefore, man is ruled by suggestion.
