How Hypnopaedia Came About
Over the years, the sleep programming phenomenon has been steadily popularized by fiction. Looking the term up online will probably lead you to websites on Aldous Huxley’s novel “Brave New World.”
In 1956, however, researchers Charles W. Simon and William H. Emmons thought it to be too ineffective and impractical, so the concept of hypnopaedia was discredited.
Recently though, emerging data and a renewed interest in self-improvement have triggered a new wave of interest in the study. With this new direction, it is now thriving all over the world.
How Safe Is Hypnopaedia?
Sleep learning is one of the safer ways of feeding your subconscious with information. Unlike other techniques that might lead to less than favorable results, hypnopaedia presents no harm to the human mind.
In fact, it’s also one of the easiest ways to change the way you think and reinforce information.
How Effective Is Hypnopaedia?
Sleep programming has been known to help ease people into change. It’s not some sort of miracle drug that can make anything happen in just one night; but it will gently get you to the place where you want to be.
A lot of people who encountered success in hypnopaedia often used the concept as an accompaniment to real actions. For example, people who want to be fluent in a new language will study regularly in the day and listen to a CD at night. Listening to the CD wouldn’t have worked had they not been studying at all; but because they listened to the CD, they have an easier time recalling information.
People who want to lose weight also turn to sleep learning to help them shed pounds. Listening to a CD alone won’t make the excess weight go away, but it will give these people ample firepower to make it through the end.
Hypnopaedia is gaining momentum in the field of personal development. While sleep programming does not, as in Huxley’s novel, allow you to recite a foreign broadcast the next morning after listening to it all night, it will genuinely help you improve your recall as well as aspects of yourself that need reinforcement.
