Well, it is not that I really planned to become a hyponotizer or whatever such people are usually called, yet I somehow ended up becoming one anyway.
It started one innocent day at my previously favorite bar, Havana (It’s closed now, and I found a new fav.) There were not too many people around, and a guy was standing next to me while I was hanging out in the bar talking to one of the bartenders. I ask him, not really sure why, but I do: “Do you want to quit smoking?”
The following conversation amounted:
Admin: “I might be able to help you to quit smoking. I have helped a few other people with other problems recently, so it might work against smoking aswell. Wanna give it a shot? It wont cost you a thing.”
Man: “Oh man if that works i will be forever grateful!”
Admin: “Allright, lets do this then…”
Admin: “I need you to close your eyes and breathe deeply. Inhale through the nose, exhale through the mouth and notice that the air you inhale is colder than the air you exhale. (I kinda copied that from my first and only meditation class back in January or February.)
The guy starts doing what I ask him to do and I place my hand on his shoulder. But somehow I dont “feel” it, whatever that means (I never did something like this before, so how should I know how it should feel? *Intuition*)
A few weeks prior to this particular event, one of the bartenders in said bar inspired me to grab a candle to “extract energy” from it. All she did in reality was to hold her hands around the candle as she had cold hands I placed my hands around hers and I told her: “that’s a good idea…” She said: “What is?” to which I responded: “to take energy from the light, maybe I can use that in healing so I won’t get super tired like I did the previous few times.” It worked, I tried it later, no tiredness.
Funny enough, this girl seemed to be teaching me stuff without knowing it herself.
Back to the smoker guy..
I put my hand on one of the lights in the roof, and put my hand back on his shoulder and asked him to close his eyes again.
I think to myself: “holy shit, thats alot of power, now it will surely work..”
I tell him: ” When I snap my fingers, you will take a cigarette from your pack, go outside, light it up, taste it and conclude that this is the worst shit you have ever tasted and you will cough and feel ill for a few seconds. Subsequently you will never want to smoke again and you will hand me the rest of the pack.”
I snapped my fingers… guy goes out the door. I curiously follow him to see what would happen. He lit it, tasted it, disliked it, tossed it, coughed and grabbed a nearby pole as if he did not feel well. After 5 seconds he recovered, put his hand in his pockets, grabbed his pack of cigarettes and gave it to me. Awesome! Free cigarettes!
We spoke about what had happened, and he told me that the first time (without light) he felt nothing, but with light, he felt alot differently. Kinda wierd…. I find it wierd!
I don’t know if the man smokes today, in fact I don’t even remember what he looked like, but I hope it worked 🙂
