At one of my Toastmaster’s meetings, a person presented a speech on how to hypnotize a lobster so that when you put it in boiling water it will not scream.  He indicated that a similar technique can also be applied to crabs.  You soothe the crustaceans by gently stroking, beginning about two inches behind their nose down to their back, and then reverse the direction!  Although I do not eat the creatures, my heart felt for their painful demise.

I wondered then about our own soft spots and what hypnotizes us as human beings so that others are able take advantage of our spiritual, mental, financial or other resources without us being aware of it.

Think about situations, words and emotions that hypnotize you and might allow you to let your spiritual, mental and financial guard down.  You may not know the hypnotic technique that is being “applied” to you, but you probably can identify it for others.  You may know a friend who may fall for nice talk, fancy gifts, drugs or excessive entertainment, to name just few hypnotic methods.

 

Soft Spots

 

What are your soft spots?

 

How do you allow someone to hypnotize you
to rob you of your spiritual, mental and financial resources?

 

Perhaps it is not as easy as hypnotizing a lobster
by stroking him from his nose down to his back
to be calm when put in a pot of boiling water.

 

What distractions do you give in to
so that you are numb
to feeling your spiritual demise (boiling water)?

 

Is it too much activity outside and not much introspection
that numbs you?

 

Is it all sorts of legal or illegal drugs
that numb you?

 

Is it some form of superiority or inferiority
that numbs you?

 

Is there a certain mantra that numbs you?

 

Is it some form of mind-less and reactive following
that numbs you?

 

Learn from the story of the lobster!

 

What is hypnotizing you
mentally, financially and spiritually?

 

Recognize your hypnotic trance before it is too late!

 

Don’t be hypnotized by the boiling water in your life.
