Now, there are several books on how hypnosis and NLP are used in magick. All one has to do is search the other threads on this site alone. For instance:
Hands-On Chaos Magic: Reality Manipulation through the Ovayki Current refers to NLP quite a bit.
Just what we call sigil opening is a way of inducing a trance state in which one can communicate with the entity one is trying to work with. The idea of creating and using sigils is a way of giving a hypnotic and post-hypnotic suggestion. For example, “Just put aside the sigil and come out of the trance. Do not lust for result.”
If anyone is the Washington, DC Area, I will be giving a free class on Basic Hypnosis and Intro to NLP. All are welcome, even though there is limited seating. Magick will not be mentioned, even though I will touch on Metaphysical principles. I will share a PDF of the presentation and notes to this site after the class.
