Using the the BEST ME Technique of multimodal suggestion -- the simultaneous application of suggested changes in Beliefs, Emotions, Sensations and physical perceptions, Thoughts and images, Motives, and Expectations to project one's entire being into the content of a suggested experience (Gibbons & Lynn, 2010), we can use this experience, which we refer to as "hyperempiria," to help our clients to explore a Multiverse of all possible events which can be individually tailored to suit the needs of anyone whose imagination is sufficiently developed to undergo them (Gibbons & Woods, 2016).
It does not matter whether hypnotically suggested experiences are actually "real," as long as these experiences are real to the client. With sufficient training, people can experience, and actually live out, the full rewards of future goals in order to provide themselves with the energy and motivation to pursue them in the present, thereby eliminating the need for what is popularly referred to as "will power" -- not only with issues such as smoking, alcohol and drug dependence, weight loss, pain control, insomnia, panic attacks, and phobias, but also with the pursuit of distant goals, such as studying for an advanced degree. (According to the Chronicle of Higher Education, "A disturbing fifty per cent of doctoral students leave graduate school without finishing." (And how many more who have the necessary ability never even begin to go to or finish college?)
It's too early for any controlled experimental studies; and research funds for individual practitioners are practically unobtainable, particularly in today's parched research climate. But clients have been saying things like, "I can't thank you enough!" and, "I'm at a point in my life now where I think I can accomplish anything!" and the changes which they are reporting in their lives seem to bear this out. We would like to invite you to join us now in exploring these fascinating new realms of experience, and sharing with us in the thrill of discovery.
