An article by R. Douglas Fields published on the Scientific America website titled Mind Control by Cell Phones put into perspective what it means for your minds to be controlled by cell phones.
The question he put forward was if a phone’s electrical signals can transmit frequencies strong enough to control the mind. That is especially the case when someone is on a phone call.
What are alpha waves anyway?
These are brainwaves that form in the brain when the brain is in its most relaxed state.
It will be there during deep meditation or when your mind is blank, and you’re not thinking about anything or wandering.
These brainwaves are there when you shift from the external world to the internal thoughts.
On that note, it would explain why you shouldn’t drive while talking on the cellphone.
Your alpha waves will be boosted significantly, making you unable to concentrate on what is happening externally (the road). This same brainwave is there when it comes to sleep.
While these are just assumptions, it does answer the question about hypnosis during a phone conversation is possible. You can, therefore, hypnotize someone who is far away during a phone conversation.
Practical applications are many in daily lives. You don’t want to use these techniques to steal a person’s credit card details- you should use hypnosis for good.
If you have someone on the phone and they are having a hard time, then you’re able to calm them down using hypnosis methods. Let’s say a loved one is having a hard time at work, and they have lost faith in themselves.
They will likely call when they are hysterical. As you calm them down using hypnosis, their mind comes to a place of rest. From there, you can implant suggestions that include encouragement and positive affirmations.
The phone is, therefore, not necessarily a barrier for hypnosis.
