The Laws of Suggestion That Rule Your Life 6/8/08

Now let us all be channels of Light as Dr. Hugh guides us in Lighting Ourselves, The Earth, & The Beings & Things Important To You.

 1.  Mentally Think of Your Higher Self Surrounding You with a Protective Gold Light to Keep Intrusive Spirits Out of Your Energy Fields Even As The White Light of Spirit Funnels In Through The Crown Chakra At The Top Of Your Head Filling Your Soul And Your Cells With Light. 

2.  Channel That Creator Light Out Through Your Third Eye To The Earth:  Lighting The Atmosphere, Surface, Mantles, Magma And Core Of The Earth With Light.

3.  Think of the Names or Images of All That You Wish To Light with Light.    Not telling the Light what to do, just sending the light through you to them.

What are the Laws of Suggestion?

Emile Coue`, French Physician formulated three Laws of Suggestion.  As we are discussing the third Law at length we will leave it for last. 

2.  The Law of Reversed Effect:  The harder one tries to do something, the less chance one has of success which you may well recognize as being incorporated, with slightly different wording, as part of the 8th Rule of the Mind:          “The greater the conscious effort, the less the subconscious response.

Pamela and Dr. Hugh Discuss This Law and Give Examples of It Throughout Seminar, Including the Discussion with Listeners at the end.. 

3. The Law of Dominent Effect:  A strong emotion/suggestion tends to replace a weaker one. 

Again, Pamela and Dr. Hugh Discuss this law and give examples of it throughout the seminar.

Rule # 1, The Law of Concentrated Effort:   Whenever attention is concentrated on an idea over and over again, it spontaneously tends to realize itself.   Which has become simplified over time as: What The Mind Focuses On The Body Will Follow.

We know today it is the subconscious mind that controls the body, so Law #1 of the Laws of Suggestion should be amended to:


The conscious self can control the body by directing the subconscious mind:  Slow down.  Hit the ball straight.  Stop eating.   Get up and exercise.  Throw away that cigarette.  Stop Eating.  Put that drink down. Pay attention.  Study.  Be calm.  Cheer up. Act confident. Obey that person.  

The subconscious self can also control the body by directing the subconscious mind:  I like to drive fast.  I can’t hit the ball straight.  I won’t stop eating.  I hate exercise.  I love cigarettes.  I have to drink.  I can’t concentrate.  I’m a lousy student.  I’m always nervous.  Everything and everyone sucks.  I’m worthless.  I won’t obey. 

The subconscious mind pays attention to both the conscious self and the subconscious self.  Which one does the subconscious mind obey?  There is not a simple answer to that.  Example: 

You tell yourself to “Put down that fork” and even though you don’t want to, you do.  

You tell yourself to “Put down that fork” and even though you want to, you don’t.

You tell yourself not to panic and even though there is good reason to panic, you don’t. 

You tell yourself not to panic and even though there is no real reason to panic, you do.

 Which level of directives the subconscious will focus on does seem to be affected by the Law of Dominent Effect:  A strong emotion/suggestion tends to replace a weaker one.  Meaning the subconscious mind will focus its attention on the stronger emotion or directive and this is what the body will follow.

A person begins to feel fear.  That person sternly directs himself or herself to remain calm and take certain actions, despite the rising panic.  Or directs self by word or thought to follow / obey a person who seems strong and in control.

A person begins to feel fear and fails to give himself / herself directives on what to do or fails to listen to or accept such directives from another.  In this case the subconscious mind focuses on the feelings/thoughts of the subconscious self:  Run! Hide! Don’t Know What To Do!  Panic!    And the body follows. 

In the absence of any directives (absent minded, numb with shock, thinking of something else) the subconscious mind focuses on the automatic programming; i.e. what it has been taught to think, feel and do in that situation/circumstance.   

The purpose of ‘Boot Camp’, for example, is to train soldiers to automatically carry out what they have been programmed to do and to convince them of the necessity of doing so. 

 Childhood is ‘Boot Camp’ for adulthood.  What one convinces oneself to do while growing up – obey or disobey, care or not care, respect or disrespect, act worthy or worthless for example - becomes the automatic programming the subconscious mind will focus on and the body will carry out in the absence of conscious or subconscious direction to the contrary.

Far too often the conscious self fails to recognize the need for self-direction, thus abandoning the body to the directives of the subconscious self, if it is engaged and interested, or the automatic programming if it is not.

Hypnosis Empower Suggestion

States of Hypnosis:  Engrossed in (focused concentration) reading, writing, studying, solving a problem, playing a game, watching a movie, day-dreaming, fantasizing, working, walking, running, thinking intently, meditating, praying, imaging, visualizing, emotional states, trauma.   

Discussion of how open the subconscious self is to suggestion/directives when in hypnotic state, including negative lyrics to music the conscious self isn’t aware of receiving and/or disagrees with when hearing it, but does not bother to tell self disagrees with them.     


Role of Hypnosis In Empowering Suggestion is to:  1.  Focus the subconscious mind on the conscious directives.  2.  Convince the subconscious self to accept and believe in the conscious directives so it will not give contrary directives when the conscious self is engaged elsewhere.  3.  Clear the automatic programming of thoughts, beliefs, and conditioned responses that are contrary to the conscious directive.

Role of Hypnotherapy In Empowering Suggestion is to address blocks and resistance to accepting, believing in and carrying out conscious directives and blocks and resistance to altering automatic programming.

Definition of Hypnosis:  A relaxed state of focused concentration and heightened selective awareness in which the conscious self (which can be conscious or unconscious) is passive. 

The time for the conscious self to be actively engaged in thinking and analyzing is before and after hypnosis, not during.  Which is why it is important to feel one is safe when being hypnotized.  The conscious self will NOT become passive if it is distrustful of the process or the hypnotist and it will NOT remain passive should it become alarmed at any time during the process.       

Hypnosis Can Be Facilitated By Self Or By Another

When hypnotized by another one should help the one doing the hypnosis choose the suggestions one will be given for relaxing physically and mentally in that session.  (Even if one loves the seashore, for example, one may not want to imagine being anywhere near the sea when one is feeling nauseous.)  A Professional Hypnotist is trained to help you find and choose the best suggestions for you for entering hypnosis as well as the suggestions to be given to your subconscious in hypnosis.   

It is important that you know and agree to the suggestions you will be given for hypnosis and in hypnosis BEFORE being hypnotized.  Otherwise, your conscious self will be guarded, not passive, which will interfere with your ability to enter into and stay in the level of hypnosis necessary for reaching and programming your subconscious self and subconscious mind with the directives you want. 

 Note:  Self-suggestion in hypnosis can be more acceptable and thus more powerful for those who resist or rebel against (consciously or subconsciously) being told what to do.  If, after being hypnotized for a goal, you feel distressed, upset, irritable, angry and/or or you find yourself ‘acting out’ or sabotaging yourself or your goal, you will know you are either one of these people or you have a conscious resistance or subconscious block to your goal.

If you suspect or know you are the type to resist or rebel against being told what to do, you will need indirect suggestion.  Ask your hypnotist to help you determine what you need to do physically and say/think mentally to reach your goal.  Ask your hypnotist to write these out for you or help you write them out for yourself.  (Keep It Simple.)  Then read aloud or have your hypnotist read aloud what you have written or have told your hypnotist to write for you.  Verbally and mentally agree to everything you or your hypnotist reads aloud.  A Professional Hypnotist knows how to help you find symbolic words, phrases and/or images that ‘sum up’ for you what you have agreed to.  Ask your hypnotist to write down your words to describe a place where you feel physically and mentally relaxed.  Ask your hypnotist to describe this place while your eyes are closed and to repeat to you the symbolic words, phrases, and/or images you have chosen after you have entered into hypnosis.  (A Professional Hypnotist will know when this is.)  You can also, if you choose, passively think of the symbolic words, phrases, and/or images you’ve chosen as soon as you feel yourself drifting into relaxation.  (Being passive means feeling ‘lazy’ and ‘relaxed’ about it all.)   Your hypnotist should give you ONLY the symbolic words, phrases and/or images you have chosen, nothing else! 

A Professional Hypnotist can help you explore possible blocks and resistance to your goal.  A Professional Hypnotherapist can help you to address and change blocks and resistance. 

NOTE:  A Professional Hypnotist should have a minimum of 50 Hours of Training.  A Clinical Hypnotherapist should have a minimum of 350 Hours of Training with at least 50 Hours of Regression Therapy Training. 

Hypnotists, Clinical Hypnotherapists, Psychotherapists and Others who believe/teach it is not necessary to KNOW what the subconscious believes or what the resistance/blocks are to changing subconscious beliefs are mistaken.  Steer clear of them.  Common sense tells you it’s impossible to let go of what you don’t know you have or deny you have.
