Hi, I'm new so I hope I've posted in the right place.

I have a Paul Mckenna Book & CD. Before the introduction, in the first pages is states

Warning: Do not listen to the cd.....if you suffer from Clinical Depression

Does anyone have any expert opinions on why this is there?

I have tried to email his customer support but I haven't received an answer yet.

Thanks

Yes, I have an opinion. I could be more concise if I new the topic and content of the CD.

If there are suggestions regarding past memories, happy feelings, self-worth, self-confidence, etc., they can contradict negative behavioral beliefs in a way that can create significant emotional disruption.

The warning helps protect them from liability.

Hi


The Message is there in the book for good house keeping, because its a CD and not a live practitioner, then they could be a very very tiny number of people who get stuck in some negative memory- yet the CD and the language and the suggestions- in Paul's CDs constructed with a lot of care and attention to detail- in the way suggestions are used- another point is would be the publishing house that would have added the warning- and it would be done just to make sure- that everything is kept- and that the well being of any potential user- is taken care off- so its also a ethical thing to do.

If it has consciousness it's already in a trance.

Thank you for your input. The cd was accompanying the book "Change your life in 7 days" But it is also in other books with cds and cds alone being sold by other authors.
I understand there are suggestions on these cds, to believe in yourself, self-worth, self-confidence etc.. this is what I would have expected. Similar to affirmations I suppose. I thought that the cd itself is there to change/contradict ones negative beliefs.

Could you explain more about your statement please that "...in a way that can create significant emotional disruption"

Thank you Patrick

Edit: Thank you for you website link, I'll have a read

Suggestions are made to counter/work against currently held thoughts and beliefs. If the thoughts and beliefs are strong enough, they will reject the suggestions. And, in some cases reject them in a way that can create emotional responses called 'abreactions'. Would be similar to a PTSD victim being triggered to re-live the emotionally traumatic event.

I go into a bit more detail, with graphics, on these pages - http://www.glancyhypnosis.com/images/resource/default.html

Abreactions can also be triggered by the removal of a coping mechanism.. such as smoking, food habits, etc..

Ok "Stuck in a negative memory" sometimes people have been through some really rough times in life- and sometimes people can get caught up in a particular memory- for a short time- when listening to such CDs- the CDs can not tell if a person is going along with the ideas and flow, or if the person is dwelling on an experience, that would best be dealt with a living practitioner, Paul uses Ericksonian hypnosis / indirect hypnosis and is very good at it as well, having modeled the way Paul uses hypnosis with his CDs I am very aware of the structure of the way in which his Cds work. Because of the careful way in which the Cds have been produced- then there would only be a very very small chance if any that his suggestions would lead to an abreaction- (anything negative)

Paul's Cds books etc are some of the very best hypnosis and personal development tools available in the personal development market- solid down to earth- practical and user friendly.

Thanks Patrick, I'll look into that. Would I be aware of these abreactions in myself when listening to the cd? And If I did listen to a cd and if it brought up some negative memories for me that I was aware of, should I just stop using them? Maybe then contact a professional instead. Otherwise if I wasn't aware of anything then it should be ok for me to continue?

A person is generally aware if they are having an abreaction. If you listen and find it is hard/difficult to accept the suggestions, it 'could' signify currently held behaviors that would benefit form a one on one session.. if it is minor.. might listen for another week or so and see if it sorts itself out...

I apologize if my answer sounds vague.. .there are a lot of variables... if you encounter trouble, you could post on here again and let us know what is up?

Thanks Patrick. I understand. "What isn't up" is more of a statement that I'd relate to. (Tongue in cheek) I will have a listen for a week or two and if something comes up I'll post again. I appreciate the offer

Can someone please tell me why self hypnosis cd always say " let your mind wander"
I think this is a flaw because as soon as I hear this mind is all over the place, it completely ruins what otherwise would be a beneficial cd

To help reduce the chance that an analytical thinker will focus too much analytical effort an making sure they stay focused. Self-hypno cd's need to be vague and one-size-fits-all in order to increase the number of people that the cd will work for. This also works against the effectiveness of the cd.
