Anthony Galie joins me today to share a revolutionary new theory of hypnosis, based on the role of mutual inhibition. He reveals how consciousness is always competing with trance-like behaviors and identifies the types of people who are most likely to respond to suggestion. Anthony describes the role of chemical switches on the hypnotic trance and shares how the hypnotic induction narrows a person’s consciousness.
