Frequently Asked Questions 

  • File Use

    1. Do the files work for everyone?

      These are generic files. They will not work the same
      for everyone. Some files will not work at all on some
      people. Others will work surprisingly well.
    2. Do the files work immediately?

      Only for a very few suggestible people. Your best bet is to listen to a file several times over several days. Remember, the effects can be subtle and can sneak up on you. There have been several posts from people, who thought that a file as not working then realised later that it was.
    3. I'm new to this, what should I know?

      If you are new to hypnosis then don't listen to a file and expect it to work. Build yourself up to it by listening to plain induction files several times to get used to trancing. Then try others.
    4. The file I'm trying isn't working, what should I do?

      Try some easy files like TrigFreeze. There is a file to test if it works. Listen to the file, try the test. Don't fight it. You are training yourself to work with the files. Build on success. The more extreme files like curses may take several listenings to work. Also, their success will depend on how much you want them to work.
    5. What can I do to make the files work better?

      Listen to the files when you are the least likely to be distracted. Choose a time when your already feeling relaxed and listen then. Some people have good success first thing in the morning or right before bed. Another thing that may help is to repeat what's being said as you listen so that you focus only on the file.
    6. What is it like when you go into a trance?

      The vast majority of people will experience trance differently depending on what induction was used, how you feel, etc.. To be more specific: you can feel light and floaty or heavy and wieghed down; hot, cold, or warm; your muscles could tense or relax all the way; or you might have visual/audial/kinesthetic hallucinations. And, your experience of trance may be different each time you trance.
    7. Can you recommend some sources for learning hypnosis?

      www.hypnosis.com is a good site. Also you might try going to your library to see what books they have on the subject.

      Here's a list of good books to read if you're interested in learning to hypnotise others/yourself:

      Hypnotherapy by Dave Elman

      Monsters and Magical Sticks: There is No Such Thing as Hypnosis by Steven Heller and Terry Steele

      Look Into My Eyes by Peter Masters(also has applications for bdsm/sex related activities)

      Books by Richard Bandler and John Grinder:


      Structure of Magic volume 1

      Books about/by Milton Erickson:

      Prometheus Rising by Robert Anton Wilson(people who think you're freaks or abnormal in any way, read this)
    8. Do subliminal files really work?

      No, and yes. Here are a couple of links to read that say yes:
      http://www.scienceblog.com/cms/node/8018, and
      http://www.scienceblog.com/cms/node/8017. So far some users have reported great successes after having used subliminal files.(Thanks go out to brainiac for those two links.)
    9. Is this dangerous?

      If you use unchanged files downloaded directly from this site, you may consider yourself safe.
    10. I read that there are currently three theories about trance. Can you tell me more?

      There are at least three theories about hypnosis/trance. These three are the: special state theory, non-state theory, and the unified theory of hypnosis. At WMM, theories don't matter. Any practitioner of hypnosis that chooses to believe or not to believe any theory of hypnosis is just as capable of inducing trance in a subject as any other.
    11. I heard that some people just aren't able to go into a trance. Is that true?

      No. Each person is just as capable as the next when it comes to being able to go into a trance(with only a few medical exceptions). Now, it is true that each person is different. Some people will find it easier to go into a trance than others and some will respond to some inductions better than others. Try the various inductions on the site if you have troubles and find out which is best for you.
