Close Your Eyes, Get Free/Self-Hypnosis

December 17, 2018

Show Notes:

Link To Book Want to improve your self-worth, have a surgery pain-free without the use of anesthesia, and make crippled men walk again? All of this and more is possible under self-hypnosis, claims master hypnotherapist Grace Smith, author of Close Your Eyes, Get Free. In the beginning of the book Grace tells us the power of self-hypnosis with the story of Alexandre, a Brazilian special forces officer who was injured and paralyzed in combat. He tried to regain use of his legs, but nothing worked for him, until his son told him his girlfriend was a hypnotherapist. After trying everything else he finally gave in and let her help him. Amazingly it worked and after a couple months he regained the use of his legs and, eventually, his son married the hypnotherapist. Her name? Grace Smith. We then find out everything that self-hypnosis can fix, from self-worth, to nervousness, to pain, with simple scripts that you read to yourself to undergo hypnosis. But she warns us that we can’t read the scripts out loud around anybody because of the power they hold (or, most likely, she just wants more people to buy her book.) We then finally find out the history of hypnotherapy, from ancient sleep temples that the church tried to remove, to doctors on the battlefields of the civil war, and finally to creepy frenchmen who wear capes and tie their patients up. We also find out how much Grace Smith hates how hypnotherapy is displayed on screen (she cried during Get Out because of the way it was depicted). One week later… Kenyon and Kwamin try the self-worth scripts, but raising the self-worth of two struggling comedians proves to be too much of a task for self-hypnosis Subscribe, Rate, and Review on iTunes - Link Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook
