Hands On

with Jimi Simpson

Welcome to Pandora Star. My name’s Jimi. And what I’d like to do is I’d like to run through opening the box as your Pandora Star arrives. Here we have a Pandora Star. And upon opening the box the first thing that you’ll see and find on the top is a thank you sheet. Now there’s some important information on this sheet. One of which is, at the very bottom, which is to register your details with us so that access can be provided to various pieces of software and documentation that you’ll require for using your Pandora Star. We also cover some warnings about what not do, what to do, et cetera about the Pandora Star. And equally there’s a, a list of what’s included in the box, which I’ll get into now. Inside the box you have five different pieces. You have the Pandora Star lamp itself. You also have a power supply unit which is here. And for the power supply you’ll have a man’s lead which will connect into the main socket of which ever geography you are using your lamp. And this man’s lead plugs into the power supply as so. You also have, when inside the box, you have a, an extension lead for the 12 volts. So this is an extension lead that connects on the, the power supply output. And you can produce, you can actually mount the Pandora Star much higher up on a tripod stand. In addition, we also have a USB lead. And this connects into the outer ring face of the Pandora Star. And then can connect into a suitable socket on a personal computer or laptop computer. So that’s the contents of the box. The main thing is please read through the instruction sheet carefully. As I said it includes warnings, it also lists the box contents and most importantly, it basically gets you to register your product with me personally so that I can respond to you and provide access to the software, the documentation. And equally, I can get you included onto the Facebook community forum. Okay, I’m Jimi, thanks very much for listening.
Welcome to PandoraStar. I’m Jimi. In this short video I’m going to run through basic operation of the Pandora style lamp. Pandora style doesn’t have a power switch as such. The way that you actually power the device is to simply take the power supply and to connect it into the power socket on the rear. When I do this, you’ll notice that the, the light actually flashes initially. And then what happens is it takes a period of about two or three seconds to literally go through some auto-process, pretty much like what you have with a personal computer system, albeit somewhat quicker. Once the lamp is at the point where it’s gone through all its boot-up sequence, then it goes into a standby mode. Standby mode is what you see here on this lamp. Literally it’s a blue hue that just flashes in and out a very, very slow rate. And that’s just purely aesthetic. It has no real purpose other than to make the thing look beautiful. Once the lamp is at this point, which I would call standby, then you have a number of things that you can do. You can select the sequence on the lamp. So, a sequence is effectively it controls all of them parameters, the frequency, the intensity, the duty cycle, and other parameters. It controls all of those. And the Pandora style lamp can actually store a good number of sequences within its resident flash memory, and they’re available for recall at the push of a button. So simply if you press the button, the lamp moves on to the next sequence on the list. And the list can be pre-defined, but which will be the purpose of a later video. But you can toggle through the list, and for each press of the button it will move on to the next sequence on the list. Once you find the one that you are wanting to work with, then the next step is to actually start the lamp playing. And the way that we do this is you press and hold the push button until the blue hue goes off on the front. So the blue hue is now finished on this lamp here, and in a few second’s time, normally 10 seconds is the delay, you’ll start to see the lamp flicker. So you can hopefully see the reflection of that on the palm of my hand. The lamp is now starting to exercise the different frequencies, the different intensities. It’s starting to exercise the sequence that’s just been selected. Then it will continue to do so for the full duration of the sequence. So let’s say the sequence was designed to last for three minutes. The lamp would literally now play the full sequence for the next three minutes, and then at the end will automatically stop. If you need to stop the lamp earlier, then the way to do that is to press and hold the push button. And now the lamp stopped, so hopefully you can see the reflection of the strobing white light is now finished, and we’ve now gone back to a blue hue on this lamp here, this is what you can see on this one over here. When the, when the lamp is playing, you can control the intensity of the, of the white light. So nominally, the default setting for intensity, maximum intensity, is 70%. With the push button, you can actually affect the intensity from 70, and it and it runs in a cycle. It counts down from 70, so it’s 70, 60, 50, 40, 30, and then at 30% intensity it reverses direction and starts to count it through the range. So 30, 40, 50, all the way up to 100% where it turns back around again and then it comes back down the range again. So through running through a sequence of push buttons you can actually toggle the intensity through the full, if you like, the full intensity range. Now that takes place when the lamp is playing. So if I get the lamp going here again, press and hold the push button. This’ll be a slight delay, a 10 second delay before it actually starts flickering, uh, which will hopefully start in a moment’s time. So there we go, it started again. Now what I can do, and this may not be so uh, observable on the video, but I can actually just press the push button momentarily, and what’s happening is the intensity level is now counting down. And then if I go beyond 30%, it starts to count up in the other direction. So hopefully there is some perceptible effect there. At any point if I wish to stop the sequence, I can simply press and hold the push button and the sequence will stop. To power the device off, all you need to do is literally disconnect the power from the rear of the lamp. And, and now the thing’s completely powered down. You don’t need to go through a shutdown procedure as you would do with let’s say a PC or a laptop. And again, if you wish to start the lamp going, simply apply the power, let the PandoraStar go through its boot up sequence. Then after which, once it’s completed and there are messages on the screen, you will see the blue hue, which is what you can see on this lamp here. So this is now started again over here. So the lamp’s in standby. And by default the lamp will not remember which sequence was playing last. It, it literally follows through a pre-defined list of sequences in a particular order, and it will always default back to the first one in the list. And that’s primarily to give everyone the opportunity to define the list of sequences which they would routinely use in their practices, and then thereafter they can have them recalled in whatever list sequence they decide. That’s basic use of the Pandora style. I’m Jimi. Thank you.


with Lance Carter

Welcome to PandoraStar. My name’s Lance, and I’m gonna talk briefly about a few safety aspects and how to get the most out of your PandoraStar lamp. The first thing to understand with safety is that you’re always in control. Basically, starting with the distance you have the lamp from you, uh, which we usually recommend as sort of between half a meter and a meter distance from your face. Um, of course the second thing you can adjust is the intensity of the lamp, which Jimi has described in a separate video. And the third thing to understand is that you need to take a little bit of self responsibility, A, for yourself, and B, for clients if you’re using it with clients, which is a whole other kettle of fish. They’ll be another, uh, bit of information on that in another video. And r- realize that if you’re in a position where you’re feeling like the light is getting a little bit too intense, you have a number of options. One of them is to simply move away from the lamp, uh, and then adjust the intensity, and, and start again. Another one, a useful thing to do is just to sort of play with the light as it’s coming towards you, just by flashing your hands in front of your eyes, a little bit like that. You can even sort of block the, the light from coming to you a, a little bit at sort of, until it, the intensity calms down a little bit, like that. Um, other safety issues to bear in mind, obviously, uh, if you have any sorts of medical conditions, particularly any medical conditions where you’re taking any sort of, uh, drugs or antidepressants and things like that. Um, a lot of things … For instance, antidepressants tend to have, uh, uh, the function of releasing serotonin, uh, within the brain which is like a, a happy drug basically. Um, and the lamp itself will release serotonin. So if you’ve got both going on at the same time, there is a danger that your brain can get slightly overloaded on the serotonin. So that’s something to take into, um, consideration. Um, obviously other considerations like, um, if you’re pregnant. Um, not a problem for me, but might be for some people. Then it’s not recommended that you, that you go under the lamp in that sort of condition. Um, o- obviously you could get doctor’s advice i- if you’re still determined to have a go on the lamp, but we generally recommend that people who are pregnant don’t go under it. Um, and then of course the obvious safety to b- to have, um, in the back of your mind is any sensitivity to light itself. There are very few occasions where people can have a sensitivity to the light to the degree where they have an epileptic seizure. Um, and that sort of thing obviously can be brought on by something as, as powerful as this machine here. And there’s other factors to take into consideration with seizures and that is if the person is already stressed, or hungry, or dehydrated. All of these things can play a role in someone being in a state of body and mind, uh, which is easily overloaded and can t- cause some sort of seizure. Incidentally if you do, um, observe someone having or starting to begin to have that sort of seizure … And, um, we recommend obviously people who are going to be doing any sort of therapy or giving light sessions to other people other than pa- personal use, we have a requirement that people actually do first aid training including, including, um, epilepsy training to make sure you know how to deal with that sort of thing. But the easiest thing to do is actually, is to place a hand over one eye of the person that you notice who’s maybe getting overstimulated. And basically what this does, it stops the, both hemispheres of the brain syncing in and overloading so much. And it allows one side of the brain to cool down. Um, and I’ve actually had the personal experience of seeing someone just on the very verge [inaudible 00:03:38] start to go, and I rushed over, I put my hand over the one eye, and yeah, worked perfectly. Stopped them in their tracks and they were completely fine. So that’s a ushful, useful little bit of information to have. Um, seizures themselves can be caused even in, in [inaudible 00:03:53] of people, even by just walking past a fence, uh, with, with a light behind it. So there are people who a- are so sensitive that even that sort of thing can, can, uh, you know, cause a seizure. But like I said, it’s very rare. We’re, we’ve very rarely had any challenges like that. I- It’s just something to be aware of and something to be trained for if you plan on using the lamp for, to help people. Um, in, in essence the brain is a, a pattern recognition and following mechanism. So that’s basically a layman’s term, uh, definition of how the lamp works. The brain recognizes the frequencies being sent out by the lamp and will start to attune to them, a- and then as we change the frequencies in the lamp, the brain will then follow. Okay, so as a rule we don’t tend to make any medical claims with PandoraStar. Although there is a lot of research out there to show that something as powerful as, as photic stimulation … which is basically what this is doing, and to a lesser degree binaural beats and isochronic tones … can have a remarkable effect on helping people from a range of, um, orders and disorders such as ADHD, through to things as simple as stress management, and, and getting in to create a states of mind for, for writing and crea- and composing music and things like that. Um, so yes there is a lot, a lot of research out there. Um, one particular piece of research which I read about recently, which I find really interesting, and this is another ave- avenue that we will eventually restore, and that is using biofeedback, um, with photic stimulation. And this particular re- piece of research, um, there’s, there’s a lot of it, but this one was really interesting, and this was a study done actually in a American prison. And they took a group, I think, of I think it was about 70 prison inmates, and they had a control group where they did nothing with them, they had another group where they gave them two or three sessions of biofeedback. Biofeedback is basically just teaching the person through feedback with their brainwave states how to go into a relaxed, calm state. And this machine does that very quickly without needing that, that self-training. And the third group they had, um, they gave 30 or more sessions of this biofeedback, um, training in order to get them learning how to go into those relaxed states. And what they found after, after, uh, two years study, following up with these people, that the control group who had no training and the group who only had a couple of session of biofeedback, within that two year period, had a 65%, um, chance of re-offending and ending up ba- ending up back in prison. Whereas the group who had had 30 plus sessions of biofeedback, training themselves to get into a relaxed state, meditative state, had a, only a 20% incidence of re-offending and going back into prison. Now that’s huge. I mean, that’s, the implications of that are massive. And this, this is working with people in, they’re, who are in institutionalized, let alone working with it personally as, as, as you will if you intend to buy one and have personal sessions or helping with clients. So that sort of thing I find really interesting. Along with the, the, um, sights of neuroplasticity and things like that where you can literally teach the brain to rewire itself. Uh, from things as, as advanced as people who have lost the, the, the use of their visual cortex, so they can no longer see. There, there is a gentleman who through neuroplasticity, exercises in brainwave entrainment, managed to reteach his brain to, to wo- work through a different part of the brain to actually start to see again. And things like that a- are quite fascinating. And, um, who knows? I mean, th- there’s so many possibilities that it’s endless. The other basic thing to understand, um, with this lamp, it’s, a- again, as you’ll hear repeatedly from people who have used it, um, it’s a very powerful piece of kit. Um, and using it with certain frequencies will e- eventually with, with people, will bring stuff up, emotional stuff. Either with yourself or with clients if you intend to use it with clients. So it’s important to be aware of … If you’re not prepared or willing to help someone who, who comes up with some emotional trauma, stuff like that, it’s important to have someone that you can refer to them, some sort of professional, or hypnotherapist, or counselor, or something like that. So that’s just something to bear in mind. If, if, if you feel in- have anything come up, because it does, it takes you into states where, uh, past traumas and things like that, old memories, will, will surface. A- And th- that’s a good thing because it allows you to deal with them, and let them go and move on. And one last thing I would say about that, um, is that th- the beauty of, of, of this machine is that you can set it to do anything you want. You can take it … You can start at a normal frequency and go up into high type frequency [inaudible 00:08:26] creativity and inspiration. Or you can start at w- at your normal frequencies and take them to low and meditative trance-like frequencies. Um, one thing to bear in mind with that is that there, there’s always two sides to, to every, every, every frequency. So what I mean by that is for instance, if you take someone down into a low frequency and they happen to be someone who’s prone to depression, you may be actually training them to get depressed more easily. Um, because although going into a low states of frequency is very good for being into a, a, a meditative and trance state, it’s also the basis of what depression is all about. It’s that introspective, um, kind of, um, brainwave state. And these sorts of things have been, have been proven clinically. That when someone is in a depressed state they tend to have a very low brainwave frequency, down in sort of the delta, theta regions. Which is sort of, you know, in the sort of four hertz to eight hertz kind of range, is where the people who are depressed tend to hang around a reasonable amount. Um, in the same way, in the sort of upper regions of frequencies around sort of between 15 and 25 hertz, um, for most people that’s the sort of frequency of creativity, inspiration, uh, a normal sort of, um, in the flow state kind of thing. Sports people get there. Th- Sports people get even higher. They get into gamma state, so 40 plus hertz. Um, but that sort of frequency is sort of 15 to 25. There’s also the sort of frequency where anxiety occurs. So if you had someone to ca- c- to come to see with you, or if you yourself for instance, have a lot of anxiety, that’s probably not the best frequency to aim for. In that case, you do want to train yourself to get into the lower, relaxed frequencies. So the- there’s all sorts of things to learn about with that, that sort help you get more enjoyment out of the machine, and, and allow for a very safe use. And, um, if you decide to have a session, then I think you’ll really enjoy it. If you decide to b- buy a machine as, as I did, then I think you’ll find it’s, it’s reasonably life changing. So thank you for listening. I’m Lance, and this is PandoraStar.

Stay Safe

with Sky Acamesis

Welcome to PandoraStar, I’m Sky and I’m going to be taking you through our Code of Ethics today. And, um, that’s a really, really important document for you to read. You’ll see it in the Dropbox folder that we send you, and it will probably be inside the pack that comes with the PandoraStar as well. Um, it’s important whether you’re using it for professional or for personal use, um, it’s just dictates a really high standard for how you treat people that you share sessions with or that you work with professionally. Um, long story short, we’re just really looking for you to really have a really high level of respect, integrity, um, when it comes to dealing with others inside the machine. It’s a very powerful light machine. Uh, then obviously if it’s misused in any way, it can really cause problems in other people. Um, and we really would appreciate it if you would take that responsibility that you’re taking on, um, seriously. Because it’s a big thing for a lot of people to have such a deep experience when they’re around you. So the basics, this is what the Code of Ethics kind of looks like when it comes, um, inside the pack. They’ll be a front cover on it with a pretty [inaudible 00:01:18] as well. Um, but basically what we wanted to make sure wasn’t happening, um, was that you make sure that you don’t put anybody who’s vulnerable onto the lamp. So please be very, very careful. Please don’t put anybody who’s pregnant on the lamp. Anybody who has, has any sort of history of epileptic fits, or is too sensitive to stroboscopic light. Um, very young children. And also please don’t do very long sessions, um, or switch sessions very quickly back to back with vulnerable people. Um, it takes time for your mind to learn how to take that sort of intense shifting in both frequency and vibration. And it takes time for new people to develop with that too. S- And that might not be as obvious to you when you’ve been using the light for a long time. In the beginning, the light is really intense and you see a lot of shapes and a lot of colors, and a lot of different stuff. But when you’ve been working with it for a wee while, you don’t see as much and you start to get more used to it. It’s kind of like stamina. You know, the first time you go for a run, you really get out of breath, and you’re not quite sure what it is that you’re doing. You feel it a lot more intensely because your body’s still building up that stamina. And it’s the same thing with your mind, this sort of spiritual exercise meditation. Um, so when you’re revving up to using this more often, make sure that when new people come along you’re very sensitive to how much of an experience this is for them, and you give them time to build that stamina. Um, we’d also ask you to respect that a “no” from anybody who wants to use the light is a “no.” Um, please don’t push them, make fun of them in any way. Um, and I know it’s, you know it sounds like common sense, but it’s not. When you’re in a group with a bunch of friends who are teasing each other or having a good time, or you know, when you’re having someone that you love that you really want to share that experience with, but “no” really does mean “no” in this, in this instance. As it does, um, you know, in any area of life. But this is incredibly important that you respect the power of the light. Um, and that you respect the power of the machine. Um, it’s also very important that you get anybody who’s going under the machine just to give you, especially if it … personal or commercial purposes … just to get them to write down, you know, and emergency contact number, their address. Because if anything goes wrong and you know, it’s very unlikely that something will go wrong, but if anything does go wrong, that is what, you know, the ambulance service is gonna ask you for. It’s what it’s going to ask them for. Um, so just make sure you write it down on a notepad if it’s, you know, just a friend, or you know, a member of the family. And if it’s, you know, something you’re doing for commercial purposes, that you make sure that you check what they’ve written on that form, on that consent form. And that you can clearly read their name, that you can clearly make out a number, and you can clearly make out an address. Um, because that does come in handy. It’s, it’s really rare that anything goes wrong but if it does, trust me, you will want to have that stuff 100% covered. Um, we’d also ask that you please contact us, you know, with any change of email address, phone number. Just drop us a line, um, to let us know … It’s, it is just we’re talking about ethics, so it’s just polite that we know where the people with our lights are, that we know where our distributors are working. Um, and it keeps a really great line of communication open between you and us. Please, you know, don’t hesitate to contact us, um, and ask us for any help you might need, uh, with sorting out through the ethics. It’s something very, very basic. Um, obviously we also ask inside the ethics agreement that you only do the things that you’re qualified to do. So you know, please don’t put yourself out as being a professional with the light machine if you aren’t one. Um, don’t do any sort of false advertising or start making any miraculous claims about what the light machine can do. Um, please be as honest with the people who come to you with treatment as possible. That being said it’s an amazing light. It’s a powerful experience. I’ve seen it change the lives of people. Um, so just be very respectful of the beautiful thing that you’ve got inside your hands. Thanks for listening. Bye.
Hello. Welcome to Pandora Star. My name is Sky. I’m going to be talking to you about deep trance states today. Pandora stars a deep trance meditation device. So we thought that it would really be useful to you to know as much about trance as possible. Obviously, this video is short, so do your own research, do your own reading. Hypnosis books are an amazing source of information about different kinds of trance. I had to come in and to go out of trance naturally, but you’re going to see trance phenomena while using this light, particularly in yourself and other people. So the more you know, the calmer you’re going to be, the easier things are gonna flow. So let’s kind of get started. There are some very basic observable signs of trance. The first is physical relaxation. You’re going to feel your body start to feel heavy. You’re going to feel your breathing slow down. That’s one of the second signs of trance. Your respiration is going to become deeper and slower, kind of like when you’re going to sleep. Um, you might get fluttering eyelids or watering eyes. Ram or flickering eyes are quite a common thing as well. Please don’t be freaked out if someone’s underneath the light and you see their eyes start to flash or flicker, or their eyes opened and they just flutter. That’s a totally normal trance response. We’re to go into depth of trance in a moment, but right now we’re just going to stick to the different signs of trance. Swallowing, believer or not, a sign of trance because there’ll be gathering of saliva and increased production of saliva inside the mouth because of the relaxation. You might have emotional responses are ab reactions. With a Pandora, mostly that involves people sitting up and giggling like crazy afterwards or being euphoric or really, really like happy and, you know, on a very strong high afterwards. Um, that’s called an ab reaction. Sometimes people can’t stop laughing for a good five to 10 minutes afterwards. But ab reaction is any emotional reaction because sometimes people hold a lot of tension inside their body. Pandora Star will completely relax the mind, and therefore, really relax the physical body, which means that if you’ve not been relaxed in a long time and you’ve been holding a lot of tension and saved your body, you may experience tears. You may suddenly be grumpy afterwards. Um, you may experience sadness, and that’s just your body starting to relax and release this, these emotions. It’s totally normal. It’s totally natural. It won’t last. It’s just what the byproduct of relaxation. Um, hypnotic jerks, these happened to most people at night when they go to bed. It’s when you’re lying really, really still and you’re almost asleep and suddenly your arm or your leg goes like that. It’s as if it’s got a life of its own. It’s called a hypnic jerk, is when your subconscious mind is releasing electricity from different parts of your body and rewiring itself also completely normal, also completely healthy. Nothing to be worried about. Happens most of the time people go into deep trance. You do wonder if they’re going to sleep at night, um, or when, you know, they’re being hypnotized. Um, or even when they’re watching TV, you know, these are normal, um, side effects of trance. And that’s one of the most important things that I’m going to say to you in this video is that trance is such a normal state. Like it sounds very highfalutin and complicated, but trance is such a normal thing. We all experience every day. Anyone that’s ever gotten into a car, driven to work, and then forgotten how they got there, or I didn’t realize that they were at work already was in a trance. Anyone that’s ever been watching a movie with their friends and not noticed, you know, that a few of their friends went to the bathroom and came back was in a trance. Um, anyone who’s ever been near somebody who concentrates a lot when they’re studying and you can make as much sound as you like if they can’t see you or hear you can even talk to them and they can’t get there, that’s a state of trance. It’s normal. You don’t even have to be thinking about it. It’s just where you really focus on something to the exclusion of everything else. Or when you exclude everything else from your focus. Um, so like a lack of focus altogether, those are deep trance states. Um, non observable signs of trance, um, involve in increased suggestibility. So it’s very, very important that you speak positively about the light and that you only see kind, loving things whilst the person is underneath them machine. Um, they are in a deep trance state. So it’s just, you’re putting a lot, they’re very high, they’ve got a higher level of suggestibility when they’re inside that state. So you only want to be saying positive things. You don’t want to be scaring anybody, um, when they’re underneath the light. Um, and that’s just goes for any kind of therapy anyway. When you, a, as a therapist, you have a position of power, so you have a higher level of influence, um, with the people that you treat and the people that you help. So the messages that you give them are incredibly important. Um, when they do different studies, um, what they found is that therapists, doctors and particular, just wearing a white court, makes a big difference to whether or not someone believes that a treatment will work. And that in itself is a really big indicator of whether or not they’re going to allow that therapy to help them or not. If, you know, in NLP it’s called rapport. Same thing for hypnosis. You know, in counseling it’s called trust. They also talk about unconditional positive regard, but it’s all the same thing. The idea is that that person is trusting you, and they’re becoming more suggestible and the presence of an authority figure. So the suggestions that you give them need to be kind, need to be positive, need to make them feel safe because that’s going to bring them the best results through therapy or in the light session, um, or it’s going to bring you the best results in your personal use. So the better you speak about the machine, the better you speak about your light sessions than bear and experience you’re going to have. Um, the other thing that happens is time distortion. You’re going to have some people that go into the lamp, or when you go onto the lamp, you’re going to lose track of time, sometimes. You’re going to think you’ve been under there for 15 minutes, and you’re going to have been under there for an hour. Sometimes you’re going to think you’ve been under there forever and it’s going to have been five minutes. Time distortion is a normal, perfectly, every day part of trance. That’s why when you go to sleep at night and you wake up in the morning, you don’t think, “Oh my God, I’ve been lying here for 10 hours.” Um, use time distortion, you have new concept of time. Um, so particularly if you’re working with a client, it’s always good to just, you know, let them know that this is a part of the process, and to give yourself 10 minutes at the end of the session, um, to reorientate them and to let them get back time perspective. That doesn’t mean they should lose track of what year, what day it is. It just means, you know, they might get confused between 10 minutes or half an hour or 50 minutes. Um, wait, distortion, that’s one of the funniest ones. And a, it’s that feeling of being light or being really heavy. Um, you might just really not be sure, um, about your physical body when you’re underneath the lamp, but what’s going on with it and about what it’s doing. And that’s totally natural as well in that sense. And you might feel really, really heavy, and you feel like you’re sinking into the sofa or, you know, the bed you’re lying on. You might also feel really, really light, you know, giddy like you’re floating, um, tingling or numbness. Also completely normal side effects of trance. Um, you might feel, you know, your leg or your arm, your hands, in particular becoming numb. You might feel yourself falling asleep, which is going into an even deeper level of trance. But we’ll get to that when we go into the different depths in a moment. Um, your heart rate. Your heart rate will slow down, um, when you’re underneath Pandora light. And that’s got a lot of benefits for the body. It’s kind of like it slows down when you go to sleep, your breathing deepens, your heart rate slows down, and it gives your body a chance to reset. It’s one of the beneficial side effects of relaxation. Um, and tantalized emotional responses are also a normal side effect of trance. Um, that means that person, you know, might have a tear down the side of their face, um, that, you know, they might, eish, you know, be, oop, looking, kind of closed down. Um, they might be withdrawn afterwards. It’s the exact opposite of an ab reaction. It’s when someone’s responses kind of come in to them, or they come into themselves when it comes to extreme emotional experiences. That’s why those 10 minutes, at the end of the session, whether you’re by yourself or whether you’re dealing with a client are so important, gives you time to reorientate yourself. Write something down in a journal, keep track of what’s coming up for you or for them during their sessions. Keep a really good, accurate, you know, log of what’s going on. Um, the last but not least is that when you’re in deep trance, you may get loud sounds, strong vibrations. Um, this has been reported for a long time, both in the spiritual community and in out-of-body exploring community. You might feel like the whole bed that you’re on is shaking. You might feel like there’s an airplane taking off outside the window. This is another side effect of trance. Um, it’s your whole subconscious mind reorienting yourself to the environment. Completely normal. Nothing scary is happening. There is not a plane in the room with you and your bed is not about to take off like a magic carpet. Um, there’s also not an earthquake happening. It’s just one of those side effects of trance. And the more you know about it, the less scary it’s going to be, and the more fun it’s going to be. Um, so this list that I’m giving few here by no means exhaustive. Please feel free to go and purchase books on this subject. There are many, many brilliant people are teaching this on a very advanced level. Um, but it’s a comprehensive indicators list of where you are in a trance state. So last but not least, I’m going to quickly talk to you about the different trance states, um, and the depth of trance. So there’s five different decks of trance, roughly. There’s the mild state. Um, and that’s not Airlie relaxed state. So when you’re kind of dreamy, kind of floating in and out, um, a lot of aches and pains are superior, you might feel your body become heavy, you might notice that you’re kind of sleepy, your eyes might drip down. All this is mild state of trance. Um, the next one is, you know, light trance. That’s when you’re kind of gone. It’s kind of like when people call the dozing state. You’re not, you know, got left from the room. You can hear everything everyone’s saying, but your, you know, your driver’s z or your dozy. You’re not all there. You’re already in a light state of trance. Um, medium state of trance is only, it’s only changes from light to medium when you start to experience any sort of, um, amnesia of, you know, time distortion about where you are, about the session itself, about how long it’s been going on for that shows, you know, a medium depth of traps. And again, what I’m teaching you here is just very basic, but it’s the basics that you need to know to work with a Pandora Star. Um, if you want to work with hypnosis in a Pandora Star like I do, you will have to take a professional hypnotherapy course. Um, and it’s an amazing thing to do. Um, the next day after the medium state of trance is some [inaudible 00:11:16]. So that’s a deep state, and that’s when you’re talking about deep sleep, you know, the person is the equivalent to deep sleep, so they can be really, really gone, and they will respond to commands that had been agreed to before you put them in a deep state. But otherwise, this is when someone’s lying underneath the machine. And this happens a lot when we’re doing big groups of people and they’re like machine session ends, and there’s people still under the lights, not snoring, but they are completely still and they are, might as well be asleep. There’s a different state. If you look, if they were hooked up to an EEG, you’d be able to see it’s a different state than sleep itself. But it’s such a deep state of relaxation and deep state of trance, that they’re not aware of the room. They’re not aware of the environment, they’re just, it’s as if they work for all intensive purposes, you know asleep. They will just be, be respond to being counted up from that state. Um, so if you ever have a client or if you ever have, you know, a friend who’s underneath a light machine, and they’re really deep in a trance state, so you finish a session, and they’re still fast asleep on the couch or, you know, they’re really, really deep and, you know, you’ve called them back a few times and there still slowly coming back. Just do the same thing that we hypnotist do, just start counting, you know. Say, “I’m going to count from 10 to one. And then on the count of one, you’re going to be alert and fully awake.” Um, uh, things like that really help people to come out of deep states of trance. You can also say that to yourself because you can gently use trance on yourself anytime. Self hypnosis is incredibly safe. There’s a lot of youtube videos and a lot of books about how to do it. But before you go into trance, you can say, “Okay, if at any point, you know, during the session I don’t feel safe, I’m going to have a word that I say or, you know, finger movement that I use. Um, that’s going to mean I go to my safe splay, space or there’s going to mean that I wake up.” Um, and that’s really, really useful. That’s what I do for my own sessions and you’re very, very welcome to use that for yours. Um, the last one is the coma state. So this is a very, very deep state. Um, and this is where it’s actually really happens without you actually trying to go into it. We’ve maybe had one person ever go into a ver- a coma state by themselves, and that’s when they really, you know, kind of fall deeply into trance and you, you know, you might experience them opening their eyes and being completely asleep, so their eyes will be rolled up. Um, they might just be as might be complete sleep in itself. They might take about an hour or so to come round. Also, completely normal. Not something to worry about. Actually, something to be very excited about it because if you can achieve that state, that deep coma state, you can achieve some very deep healing and some very big change inside your life, um, for whatever it is that you particularly want to work on. So it’s just making you aware that there, you know, there’s a lot of trance states, they’re very, very normal. You experienced them every day. They’re 100% safe. Um, and to experiment with them and to do some reading and some research on them. Um, thanks for listening.
