You could probably resist me.
Sure, I’ve been hypnotizing people for years. I’ve been STUDYING hypnotizing people for years- learning nlp and psychology and body language and scams and all sorts of little techniques that can help me get into your head. I’ve been watching you specifically- picking up on how you speak and how you move and how you think in just the way that I want you to. You don’t see the structures, the prodding, the bait my words lay to lead you along my path. You just follow happily. Blindly. As if this were all a choice and it was just a coincidence that your desires line up perfectly with my plans.
You could probably resist.
If it were just you.
But, you see- it’s not just you.
There’s a simpler self- a more malleable self- that lies deep inside you. A self that tells you to hit snooze on your alarm in the morning. The self that tells you to eat sweets instead of healthier foods. The self that reminds you that inconvenient tasks can surely wait for another day.
A self that pursues pleasure.
A self that avoids pain.
A self that always simply wants to do whatever feels best in the moment.
A self that often wins out even when you KNOW that some other goal should guide you long-term.
You don’t want to fight me, deep down.
You want to feel good.
And all I have to do to control that self is simply remind it of how wonderful it feels to give in. How enjoyable it is to let go. How exhausting resistance can be and how amazing it will feel to finally, finally rest.
Especially when you’re tired, like this. When you’re needy. When you just want to feel something simple and good.
It won’t take long. When you’re ready, that part of you will show me. It will wave and signal and speak to me in a language that it knows I understand. It knows that I can give it what it craves. It knows how easily it can override your conscious thoughts. It’s just waiting for permission to give in to me.
You don’t even have to be aware that it’s happening. When I’m ready, I’ll take you so under easily that it will feel effortless- just as natural as breathing in and out.
Breathe in- you’re here. Breathe out- you’re mine.
There’s no way to resist when it’s two on one.
