Sample text:

Hypnosis has a wide and varied background and few people are aware or its ancient origins. Some of man’s earliest history is filled with allusions to the existence of the hypnoidal state.   It’s been pointed out that Cave Paintings depict humans dab­bling in trances over five thousand years ago.  A Grecian cult, the cult of Aesculapius, cured insomnia through apparently hypnotic trances.

 In preparation for healing, a shaman adhered to cer­tain practices that allowed his powers of concentration to be heightened.    Because the shaman needed to feel focused, he would place himself in an environment that was not distracting in any way.  It was not uncommon to find him in a dark, quiet room or an isolated place in the forest or in a cave.    There, the shaman made himself as comfortable as possible and be­gan his descent into what he called the lower world.  This of­ten meant visualizing an opening in the earth and journeying downward into that opening. More often than not, the journey was accompanied by the rhythmic and monotonous beating of drums, singing or chanting.

 It is thought that the Egyptian priests used the sleep temples and ritualistic ceremonies to cure illness. In a Brit­ish Museum, there is a base-relief from a tomb in the Thebes showing the Egyptian Hypnotist practicing his art.  It’s been pointed out that in the ancient Greece temple of comedy and tragedy were used for the healing of various maladies.  The comedians were highly respected by the community because of their ability to use positive suggestions for promotion of cures.
