Hypnosis while conjuring traits?
#1
Default 
Charlotte recommended self-hypnosis to someone;
and as I was having problems with perceiving personality, I decided to give it a try.

For myself it was easier to think about traits, and what they mean to a character.

I was wondering how you guys outline traits, do you sit by a list of paper, reading the tulpae' traits out to yourself?
Does self hypnosis actually benefit the thought process?

Also, the link to an easy to follow, self-hypnosis guide:

Thanks for the extended opinion from guest:

Do you think about where you are going when you walk to the kitchen? Probably not. You are probably thinking about other things, like that you are hungry or that you have a headache. Or driving a car without even thinking because you know the path so well. That is part of hypnosis. Wanting to get something when you see a commercial is through hypnosis as well. It's the same stuff as meditation and anything that deals with the subconscious. You are just getting as relaxed as possible so the subconscious is able to listen.

And being in trance is actually not what you'd expect. You will start to feel as if you are dosing off, but then you will have a surge of 'awake' when you reach a deeper trance. You know how your mind won't 'shut up' when you are laying in bed? You start to fall in a light trance as you fall asleep--your body is rested and there are few outside sounds, etc. all perfect for the subconscious to become active and thoughtful.

Don't think of hypnosis as anything different than meditation. The only difference is usually what the goals are. For example, meditation is generally the word used when people are seeking some kind of spiritual enlightenment or whatever while hypnosis is used to help people through problems.

The basic keys to remember about hypnosis is that all it is is really learning how to speak to your subconscious which only responds in certain ways.

>the subconscious has no concept of time or becoming things
So, let's say you were using self hypnosis to study more often.
"I will become a better student" doesn't doesn't do shit. Your subconscious doesn't work in "later" or "Over time", it is or it isn't.
"I am a good student" is better. You are telling the subconscious what it is, and it therefore will believe you and behave that way with conditioning(aka saying this a lot)

Sound familiar? A lot like talking to a tulpa at first, or like when people tell you to look in the mirror every day telling you to like yourself. It's all meditation/self hypnosis.

>The subconscious works based on patterns
This is why if you listen to induction files, they often use similarities to get the mind to fall into trance. "Just like the feeling of your legs being covered in warm sand, right now you feel relaxed and warm, and you know you are more relaxed now, and with every moment you feel more and more relaxed"
This is how advertising works and how habits form or even beliefs form. Do something enough or see it enough and your mind agrees with it. It's 'normal' and accepted as such.

It's all really cool. Hypnosis can even effect the body in ways you wouldn't expect. There was a study done in the thirties where every time the scientist said "contract", a light would turn on in front of the subjects eyes. In less than a day the subjects were conditioned to the word "contract", and even if there was no light present the pupils would contract as if a light had turned on. It's pretty interesting and I would love to study how the body reacts to a tulpa and if any other physical reactions happen near them due to the conditioning of the mind to accept their presence.

I've never really experimented with self hypnosis, though I imagine it could be extraordinarily useful with making tulpae. As you may know, you are re-writing your subconscious to an extent when making a tulpa, and hypnosis may indeed help get it re-written much more quickly.

Sometimes I feel that keeping a state of hypnosis, and building a personality is sometimes harder to perform.
But with practise it should become easier... Right?

I'd imagine because you don't have all of the control over what you put in that you usually do. So if you can find methods that work, then yes, it should become easier.

Wait, I just read the guide. It appears that I have performed self-hypnosis before, though I didn't know it at the time.

Ah, yes, its almost a form of meditation. Except you put your body in a state of extreme relaxation.

I recommended this to the guy in that ADD thread too, and it works. I always do it when tulpaforcing. If anything, it helps to clear your head of any distractions.
