Your eyebrows may have gone up a little bit as you read the title of this article because maybe you choose to believe that mind control doesn’t exist. To some extent you’re right, being able to control people’s reactions and decisions has little to do with magic, hocus pocus and all that jazz, but it has all to do with behavior patterns. Most people in the planet tend to react identically to specific situations, and hypnotists made it their job to read those reactions flawlessly. If you want to protect yourself from mind control, it’s not going to be easy, as you have to learn to recognize it first, but there are ways you can improve your resilience to mind control.
See the Diversion
One of the most common tricks that both hypnotists and magicians all over the world use is diversion. The process here is quite simple – while they have one agenda in mind, they preoccupy your thoughts and attention with something else, completely insignificant, so that you don’t notice what is going on. Spotting a diversion isn’t incredibly hard to do when you know you’re facing a hypnotist and you can predict what is going to happen to some extent, but things get trickier when you’re unaware that someone capable of mind control is in your proximity. Practice to notice details, don’t be fooled by simple tricks in which someone who hits you in the shoulder is able to steal the wallet from your pocket. See the diversion.
Signs Are Everywhere, or Are They?
We all love that amazing moment in which we hear intuition telling us what to do, but unfortunately, that little voice can be manipulated by external influences. If somebody wants you to do something specific, they can lead your subconscious mind into a trap. When you see a certain pattern or hear a certain phrase constantly, your subconscious mind will store this information and when the time comes to make a decision, you will have a feeling you’ve made it, when in fact it was handled by those who put the external influences on your path.
This is a very elaborate type of mind control, true, but it is also very effective and can lead you to making decisions that have nothing to do with what you actually want, though it might feel otherwise. To protect yourself from this form or manipulation, it is crucial to take good care of your mental processes. This includes a lot of effort, from monitoring your thoughts and making sure your brain is functioning optimally thanks to proper healthy nutrition, to understanding the mechanisms of this type of mind control. Whenever you see a recurring sign in front of you, stop in your tracks and think consciously how it affects you, you’ll be surprised how something you saw fleetingly can be a powerful shift in the way you think.
Being resilient to mind control isn’t something that comes overnight, which is why it’s so important to work on developing skills of noticing and focusing on the right details. This is no easy task, but if you’ve taken on yourself to strengthen your mind against unwanted influence, then you are fully aware just how useful this skill can be. Good luck. – Theresa Brawner
