202 years ago today Franz Mesmer died, leaving the western world to develop and continue developing what we today call hypnosis.
While our understand of the subject, ability, or phenomena is constantly developing it remains a very misunderstood field.
Ever since the first time I practiced helping someone into trance I have been fascinated that this is even possible. There are so many amazing ways that hypnosis can help people. I urge anyone reading this to explore how they might benefit from it.
So take a moment today to learn a little of the history of one of the fathers of hypnosis, Mesmer’s story is amazing and bizarre. Raise a glass in his memory and celebrate exploring the mysteries of humanity.
Also in history today Alexander Graham Bell patented the telephone.
Have a mesmerising March 5th.
