Ever hear the story of the "The Hundredth Monkey"? The phenomenon refers to a "sudden spontaneous and mysterious leap of consciousness achieved when an allegedly "critical mass" point is reached. The idea comes from Dr. Lyall Watson in his book Lifetide (1979)."
The story goes like this..."Watson claims that one monkey taught another to wash sweet potatoes who taught another who taught another and soon all the monkeys on the island were washing potatoes where no monkey had ever washed potatoes before. When the "hundredth" monkey learned to wash potatoes, suddenly and spontaneously and mysteriously monkeys on other islands, with no physical contact with the potato-washing group, started washing potatoes!"
Now, whether this is a metaphor or a fact, as far as I am concerned, the idea of raising consciousness through reaching critical mass(100) is worth my energy. Remember the sayings, "What you think is your reality", "Thoughts Create Things," and "What you think about comes about." As Watson writes "there is a point at which if only one more person tunes-in to a new awareness, a field is strengthened so that this awareness is picked up by almost everyone!"
So I, like many of you, have planned for World Hypnotism Day- "Celebrating World Hypnotism Day & YOU! A night of celebration at The Self Center" ... but no matter what YOU are doing on your end of the world, EVERY Hypnotist can join in our "WHD Energy Ball to be Released with the Hundredth Monkey" venture on January 4, 2008. We can all be contributors, instantly. Let me know you are in OH! And knowing that Birds of a Feather Flock Together, we read that the ENERGY BALL was actually a term used in a booklet called Abundance Hypnosis by Ormand McGill. Thank you, Ormand.
