PUSH-BUTTON BLISS - Glimpse At The Writing Of An Advanced Guided Meditation

Hi-i!

This piece exists as an mp3 file, which I occasionally share with those truly interested. But it's not for sale. Perhaps, if I find a truly curious distributor....

Let's get right into it!

 

You know, when you're listening to a disembodied voice like now, you're in the middle of something bizarre - not big time bizarre, of course. Still, it is curious.

And, if you want to know the truth, right now, as you listen and breathe and consider what you've just heard, you're in an even curiouser situation than if you were listening to some other kind of disembodied voice like a voice on the telephone, say, or a voice on the radio, or - come to think of it - it's about as odd as a voice you might mentally be listening to if it's somebody who has helped you feel at ease in the past, if it's relaxing, that is.

If you're here, listening to this and you are feeling at ease, interesting situation as this is, then the truth is it's your breath that you should thank. That's because, you know, breathing is a magical thing.

From a certain point of view, what's happening is that your breathing has made a sort of a trip to a grand and magical gate. And that gate received a certain secret tickle the breezes like to tickle the gate with on those languid sunny summer days.

And the gate, therefore, let you in. And, here you are, you see? Okay, let's breathe. It's good to take in a relatively deep breath, every now and then. And you know what helps? A good thought. Let's take in a good thought and a few good relatively deep breaths.

In fact, rest assured, if you consider how healing a cleansing breath can really be, you have a good idea what everything you're hearing really means.

So delicate a
breeze that, turning back to walk,
one might outpace it.

You may notice feelings moving around inside you that are, in some ways, surprising . So, let's look at all this just a little more closely.

So delicate a
breeze that, turning back to walk,
one might outpace it.

You get the idea. So, getting back to where we left-off: And, of course, the gate says welcome. She says, welcome to the garden of my heart. And, the breeze says welcome in the massaging language of the breeze, also known - did you know this - as the language of refreshment....

 

There's much more to the PUSH-BUTTON BLISS experience than the script, a chunk of which is quoted, above. It starts, for example, with the orchestrated sound of bamboo wind chimes. Also, the rhythm of my voice is timed to generate greater production of Theta brainwaves (a trick I learned while studying sutras in ancient Sanskrit. (I'm not a big student of the language, but did sit in on a few sessions at two Siddha Yoga ashrams. It's amazing how much one can learn in such situations. As a result of this study and contemplating the rhythmic "hypnosis" via which the so-called Indian rope trick is performed, the relationship between the rhythm in which the sutras were read and Theta rhythms became very clear.)

But it makes sense to consider the script, too. There's a lot going on there.


What made me want to write this was my annoyance at the boring way hypnosis recordings and guided meditation recordings (same difference, really) "induce a trance." Usually, it's by counting backwards from 100 to one or describing you going down flights of stairs or having you tense and relax small muscle groups. BOOOOORING! :P

Why bother?

After studying about Theta brainwaves, I realized that generating more of these is associated with paranormal activity like telepathy. As I thought more about this, I realized there are many situations where this happens almost instantly. It was easier for me to see this, because I'd had a very intense (though short) career as a street magician and had noticed strange things I couldn't explain but could make happen.

How? Pretty much the way a storyteller does. I noticed the same things as a poet. I also noticed these things happening in situations such as the telling of ghost stories. And, as I thought of these things with the writing of PUSH-BUTTON BLISS in mind, I remembered the opening of the Twilight Zone series.

These went something like: You are entering another dimension. A dimension of time. A dimension of space. A dimension of mind. You turn the corner. There's a signpost up ahead. Your next stop? The Twilight Zone.

In thirty seconds, Rod Serling, creator of The Twilight Zone, was able to put a huge portion of the United States into a trance in which anything seemed possible. My instincts told me immediately that this was Theta. And, if you watch the opening sequences, there are direct reference to hypnosis: a spinning spiral disc, a pendulum (on a clock).

I realized that, by directing attention to the uncanny, one could instantly induce a trance.

Serling did it by creating a sense of spookiness, but I felt this had a negative edge to it. Surely, that was just extra baggage, easily left behind.

Another thing that didn't sit well with me in existing recordings was how they would make presumptions that did not match my situation - an instant buzz-kill. For example, one might say, "Imagine you're on a wonderful vacation. Go ahead and lounge. Hear the sounds of the surf coming in and out." WHOA! You said vacation - what if I presumed I was hiking? There's no surf where I am. Lounging doesn't sound like the right word for resting in the woods, either.

That's how I stumbled upon an interesting thing that every listener of hypnotic recordings has in common: they're all experiencing of a very odd - an actually uncanny - phenomenon: a disembodied voice!

Just by pointing this out, I could induce a trance. Later, I would see something very similar in INCEPTION - the Mr Charlie tactic, in which the Leonardo DiCaprio character points strange dream elements out to his subject, partly to help his subject go more deeply into the dream state (and earn his subject's trust).

If you're familiar with Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) or poetic enchantment (to get a little more folksy), you'll notice a lot of interesting tactics in the quoted text, above.

If you create guided meditations, etc, see if any of these ideas can help improve your creations.

With growing sophistication in these forms, they could someday rival movies, theme parks, and psychedelic substances. :O)

Somethinkimnot (and anyone confused by the comment, below),

I used the name Hottie, because I misread the moniker somesayimnot as somesayimHot. 

D'oh! :P

I apologize...Naughty?... though, seeing your profile picture at full-size, I can't say I was totally wrong. ;O)

Hey Hottie!

Thanks for expanding on that point! :O)

This is one of the reasons I love blogging. The techniques used in PUSH-BUTTON BLISS are very subtle. And, even though I'm the one who brought them together, they're sometimes so fine that I can use all the help I can get, because I'd like to successfully use them again!

Hahaha! :P

I intend to do more recordings: one that replicates the marijuana high - even if you've never tried the substance, before! And another to unleash psychokinesis in a safe but definitive way (The idea's for you to place a paper clip on the table before you which, by the end of the recording, will have moved by itself - say - an inch to the right).

Your confirmation is of great value. And your description of "creating a universally comfortable scenery" is a very helpful distinction.

Thank you, so much, Hottie. And, it was very thoughtful of you to leave a comment.

I see you using these distinctions to further cultivate your inner life and help others do the same. YAY ON YOU! :D

Sunshine & Blessings,
Giovani

"the relationship between the rhythm in which the sutras were read and Theta rhythms became very clear"

That is very interesting...it is really about the rhythm and--as you were saying--the person's ability to connect with the imagery being presented.  I often have this tendency to kind of hypnotize myself before I settle down to meditate, and I often picture myself leading others in meditation when I do it...and I never really thought about it before, but the rhythm is really key..and creating a universally comfortable scenery...interesting

Hey, Winger!

Thanks for commenting! :O)

I appreciate your having visited & read this blog post. I so enjoyed creating that mp3 (It was originally on a CD gorgeous in the simplicity of its decor)!

There's no need for you to write anything more - I'm happy with your just dropping by to visit. I sure would enjoy a few words about what you found especially interesting and what implications arise in your mind, however.

That's what makes sense to me, anyway. What do you think, Winger? :O)

Sunshine & Blessings,
Giovani
