Self-hypnosis and the matrix

Self-hypnosis and the matrix

by Jon Rappoport

September 9, 2015

You could also call self-hypnosis a “self-induced conception of reality.” It is a steady-state set of perceptions and ideas and emotions that combine, like a collage, to form a sense of The Real.

Nothing wrong with that, but often The Real turns out to be The Normal or The Average.

Not necessarily a bad Normal, but an unyielding one. The person may be “doing well” in life, and he may even want to increase his own power…but he doesn’t want any change that will necessitate the dismantling of Normal. That would be too big a sacrifice.

Over the past 30 years, I have run into many such people. I tell them they don’t have look at their situation in either-or terms. The increase of their power doesn’t demand a take-down of what they already have.

In fact, a take-down or dismantling of Normal, when it isn’t desired, pays negative dividends: confusion, a sense of isolation, a blocking of energies.

Which is yet another reason why I’ve written so often and so extensively about imagination. Imagination is a highway to greater power without an accompanying surrender of what you already have.

The many, many imagination exercises I’ve developed and included in my collections, Exit From The Matrix and Power Outside The Matrix, take a person in the direction of greater creative power—and then, at some point, if Normal is going to change, it is going to do so naturally.

This change often manifests as a person decides to invent a new and different future for himself.

That future, as radical as it may seem relative to his old life, comes about, not by force or wrenching, but by his desire to achieve something better.

In that case, the old Normal withers and drops by the wayside. The new Normal is much wider and deeper and higher.

This, in fact, is the process by which any artist (in the broadest sense of the term) leaves an old style behind as he invents a new one.

True human psychology is all about the future. It isn’t about wrestling and struggling with the past. It isn’t about rearranging deck chairs of the past.

One of the key experiences of my life (1962) was beginning to paint. Based on no background, training, or discernible talent, I jumped in. Because I wanted to.

After a month, I looked around and realized all the friendships and relationships in my life had changed. I was no longer seeing them through the same lens. I was, simultaneously, free from them, and far more interested in them—but from a wholly different viewpoint. In a nutshell, I was operating in the present, no longer lugging around who knows what from the past.

There is something deep in the human spirit and in human energy that wants to create and invent, and when that impulse is stifled or put on hold, because the person himself decides it’s “not possible,” a souring and shortening and shrinking of experience sets in…and that is when The Normal and The Average come to the foreground and take over.

It doesn’t have to be that way.

Life is a great deal more than that.

On another front, when a person has seen through the lies and manufactured consensus around him, and consequently understands how the world works at a deeper level, he may find himself in a dead-end.

He is “in-between.” But again, the answer is found in imagination, because it’s the gateway to inventing something better than the false consensus.

It’s the way out of the hole.

The factors I’m sketching in this article are rarely taken up with any seriousness in society. They’re dismissed, or put in abeyance.

But when the individual considers them, and approaches them from his own perspective, the lights can go on. He can begin to feel the pulse of his own energy, which has been waiting in the wings for a new adventure, one truly worthy of his time.

What has been called The Matrix is a series of layers. These layers compose what we call Reality. Reality is not merely the consensus people accept in their daily lives. It is also a personal and individual conception of limits. It is a perception that these limits are somehow built into existence. But this is not true.

What I’ve done here is remove the lid on those perceived limits. This isn’t an intellectual undertaking. It’s a way to open up space and step on to a new road.

    Amazing coincidences
    That can’t just be
    Flowing like a wild river
    Pushed out to sea
    Building white wash
    Steel columns
    Arise
    Music
    Crashing in the waves
    Talking in a way
    That can’t be explained

    “the normal” or it’s existentially fascist and boring method called psychology is all about how to try and organize “the now”. Pure madness at an extreme: How to filter reality! how to create the same pattern with everyone in the world, with each of them thinking “this is me, this is really uniquely me”..it is like a handbook or some product with a cheesy ad “how to create anxiety that YOU want”

    like those cheesy ads on public access tv, or like that hamburger gmo shitplace says “have it YOUR way”.. yeah, having it on your own way dude, what can go wrong.

    then someone comes out of the blue, time to time here and there..stands on some high ground and says
    “its been long time we are having it your own way people, aren’t you bored? I am bored. so… lets see how many of you can change, I had enough of that “your way” thing so lets see how many of you can change this..to OUR way” This is a party, shit, this sounds fun.

    then someone else goes:
    lets jump on that vagon. lets have some on that ride too, why not. there are many toys in this circus. Remember, this is boredom killing institute.
    ….

    “the normal” is a place that no living thing can or supposed to live in. the normal is not about shrinking the expansion. Normal is about re-forming, re-shaping, re-designing re-branding everyone to single human being and creating billions of clones of it on a planet called earth.

    Normal, is crazy.
    Until you invent your OWN.

    that’s the REAL ACTUAL FACTUAL, normal if there’s any.
    Only happens to a non-collectivist free individual, ofcourse….
    ***
    About “in between” situation:
    I am still having this “in between” experience. Tough stage let me tell you, but still, this feeling I got beats all that other interference: The joy of freedom. And witnessing this is something truely great. Just about you start to think “I Can’t have anything more shocking”…like, at the ‘dead end’ stage, with loads of frustration,in an unmaginable state of mind I was..I mostly thought “people would go nuts, what else can possibly be this shocking? This must be the most ultimate mind game ever existed” etc..

    And then, like 48:45 and on going part of Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5. [by the way, thanks a lot Jon, I never truely listened to classical music until hearing this piece. thank you)..

    yeah, like that part. Like “this is just a start”, coming out of the dead end..

    Even making it to there, is priceless. Knowing how amazing things that soul can achieve. Crafting itself, the way it supposed to be, brilliantly.

    What you wrote in “The invention of meaning”

    ” Consider a painter. He makes 5000 paintings, and he says, ‘They’re all filled with meanings. But I can’t tell you what they are, because our language doesn’t convey them…’
    If you listen to Shostakovitch’s 5th Symphony, do you glean many untranslatable meanings in the music itself? Not in words?
    The situation I’m describing here is akin to thousands of people flying and running and walking in the sky…and feeling a compulsion to come back down to Earth, where the only meanings are.”
