How Do You Draw A Rabbit?

Creativity through Hypnosis

When I was six years old, in my first grade class, we were doing an art project.  They asked us to draw a rabbit.  Now, we didn’t have a live rabbit to look at, so they taped a photograph of a rabbit to the front board.  We sat with our crayons and went at it!

Something different happened during that art project, which I noticed at the time but didn’t understand.  I drew that rabbit perfectly.  REALLY, really well.  As I was drawing, I was looking at the photo at the front of the room, and concentrating.   Really concentrating.  Inner focused concentration, connecting with the photo and following the curves.

When we were done, I was astonished at how perfect my rabbit drawing looked.  Amazingly life-like.  The teacher was walking around the room, looking at our work and made a big fuss over my rabbit, complimenting me.  She held it up it to the entire class, and asked me if she could keep it as an example of good work for future classes.

I let her, which I’m sort of regretful about, because I wish I could look at that rabbit drawing again right now!  (Actually, I could see it again, using hypnotic regression, but that’s another story for another time.)

All well and good, the teacher kept my picture.  Now, here’s the interesting part of the story.  A string of students then came up to me afterwards asking “show me how to draw a rabbit.”   Apparently, I was now the rabbit-drawing-expert.  And I couldn’t do it.

I remember taking a piece of paper and CONSCIOUSLY trying to replicate my rabbit for the first kid in line.  No way.  It was a pathetic squiggle.  And the student took it, and walked away looking like he held a treasure.

I drew more pictures for my fellow students, and they were nothing like a rabbit, non realistic and just bad caricatures.

I understand this scenario now.  I used self hypnosis to draw the rabbit.  Like that book, “Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain,” I tapped into my unconscious mind, my creative mind power using a focused attention.  I had no idea what I was doing at the time, however I did recognize that I had a different state of mind while drawing my rabbit initially, and when asked to show how.  No way could I just “draw a rabbit” quickly on command.  That activity involved my six year old conscious mind.

Our conscious minds are linear, logical, limited.  We can and do astonish ourselves with our own abilities when we utilize our creative mind.  Not just a tiny part of our mind.  That’s hypnosis–a doorway into more power!  Who knew?  I was already a hypnotist in first grade!  🙂

Is Hypnosis the Holy Grail?

Find what you’re looking for, with hypnosis!

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

I’d like to share a story with you about a man in my Bellevue College hypnosis class this week.  The names are being masked to protect the real people involved.  Let’s call him SAM.  Hi, Sam.

Sam took my class.  He’s an older gentleman, who sat in the back of the room during my first lecture with arms folded and a scowl of disbelief on his face.  I was talking about the power and success of hypnosis.  His face was a poster child for “I don’t believe this AT ALL!  Bull-oney!”

It was comical to me, his expression and demeanor were so over-the-top.  I turned to him and said:  “You look skeptical.”  He immediately denied it.  “No, I’m open minded.”  “Wonderful!” I replied.  🙂

Anyway we had a group trance experience and afterwards students were commenting on the experience.  Sam denied that he had been hypnotized.  Hey, when you do this work day in and day out as I do, guess what?  You can recognize hypnosis.  Sam was hypnotized.  Very.

So, I teach my class, and I throw in a few suggestions during trance to speak to various goals that the students had expressed.  Sam’s was weight loss.  Sam also got his mind focused on weight loss during the in-class exercises on goal setting.

Next week completes the course.  Sam returned.  His whole attitude and demeanor had changed.  Why?  He had immediately had BEHAVIORAL CHANGES in his life, with no other source than the work we did in class.  He had already lost some weight to the point his wife commented on it to him!  He was drinking more water, eating less, and so on.  He was amazed.  Suddenly, Sam was a believer.  Hypnosis works!

Yes, it does.  At the end of the class, Sam was excited, pleased, enthusiastic, and he said to me:  “I think I’ve found the holy grail.”  People who are battling weight and have eating issues, yes, they do know the endless search for something that works.

The holy grail?  Perhaps.  🙂  Yes, you have found something wonderful, Sam, and yes, it’s going to lead you to attain your desires.

I don’t make a lot of money teaching at Bellevue College, I mostly do it to spread the good word on hypnosis.  The transformation in Sam’s face from “No!” to “Wow!” makes it all worth it for me.

More classes are coming up, by the way.  Check out my events page.

Warm Regards,
Connie
