Time distortion…slowing down time..a Trance phenomena

To get to the proper hypnosis section-Skip the B.S between these lines. To know why I write so freakin’ badly…read the B.S before complaining to my boss!



Warning-This is NOT for proofreaders, the grammatically obsessive or anyone else who needs their text to be stylistically perfect and grammatically proper!!! If you are horrified by the slaying of the English language, mortified by the murder of punctuation and apoplectic at the cruel use of buggered up grammer then you had better head to friendlier textual climates or inform the RSPCE J More simply put, there are incredibly deliciously and wonderfully good reasons for arsing up my English in the following article. So now that I’ve said it, you can enjoy or not the following mystical nonsense with your conscience at ease and your sensibilities only moderately abraided. Enjoy..

If you’ve never had any form of trance before…as far as you know…this will be new to you.  If you want a new experience of what YOU can do with your senses…I offer this. If the word Trance pokes the skeptic in you up the proverbial with a red hot thing you normally shove in a fire….read on. If you are likely to debate to reality or not of the trance state…try it out for yourself, and realise something you can call a trance state is quite a normal experience. You might realise pleasantly that exact scientific reasons have little to do with enjoying a new experience. You can choose to let me know your own pet theory once you have it tamed that is.


Ok I lied…it would be helpful to read this B.S*

All you have to do, is simply read and choose deliberately to conscious attempt to follow every single suggestion offered. If you wish to enhance the effect, deliberately find your own best ways to enhance each idea. Where my examples and ideas don’t fill in everything, add your own ideas…your own experiences…your own best memories..

It’s possible to read the meat of this article and make sure it does nothing to you. No-ones words can make another be certain to do anything. So my point is, if you can easily and openly follow some ideas, you can choose for yourself a fun and potentially profitable common sense experience that can feel highly mystical. As ever, the choice is the reader’s. Nothing more than your mind and your senses are required. I’d be grateful for any feedback and experiences however. Improvement suggestions also :-).



Have you ever felt a sensation of seeing things in great clarity? A state of mind where perhaps time itself slowed down a little bit? Or perhaps time stopped?

Ever noticed the space between two thoughts, the gap in time when a ball thrown to you is still in the air?

What happens if you are going very fast, like a car on a motorway and then you slow down to come off at an exit? Does time and speed appear to go slow?

Would you like feel that now a little, for fun maybe…please? Pretend you can imagine the sense of a difference in the speed of time…what would it be like?

Just a sensation, a sensation of slow time…perhaps the phrase “slow time” can be your reminder of this sensation for this moment…that can last a little longer now if you wish to give yourself a brief long experience of being able to create slow time for yourself.

At times there’ll be a phrase…like slow time….seeing more deeply and so on that you will notice or may have already noticed on your second or third rereading..is repeated…in order that your brain can choose to link the phrase to an experience or state of mind that now you can choose easily to become aware of or perhaps just imagine you can become aware of now..

This is a state where perhaps there is a little of waiting for the kettle to boil or a long queue at the bank to go down. A state where you are waiting for something exciting to happen, like Christmas Eve when you were a child or a long boring lesson at school where the second hand seemed to creep even now slowly round the face of a clock.

You may know the state, where everything just takes soooooo damned loooong to happen and you can feel sooooo deeply every single creeping crawling treacle like second, minute and hours become eternities.

If you want to make this fun however, you realise that perhaps you can remember a feeling of fun…excitement…when you are in the middle of a really good time that you never want to end…and this feeling of slow time and this fantastic time even….adds together…to become a great, fantastic and deeply slow time.


If there is a ticking noise, of a clock or other regular device you can use…you may find it fun to notice the spaces in between the ticks…can grow longer…as you observe them carefully.

Perhaps a little more carefully as you might like to notice the details of how a tick actually sounds…as if you can feel  or look at one ticking noise…and examine it closely..maybe the space in between ticks, becomes real too…you can look or feel each one of those as well..notice that maybe you can choose to make these spaces longer or the ticks more detailed and slower..something we can all do naturally anytime we choose to place our attention now or right this second on the next increasingly slow second space between two ticks…or perhaps a piece of music may provide similar slow time fun.

What would happen if now you considered the detail of the gaps in the beats and harmonies of any fast or slow piece of music?

Can you possibly observe new details…greater depths….it’s a thought isn’t it?

Can you challenge yourself to make the gaps bigger…to your perception….perhaps you notice your mind speeds up to allow time to slow time down further….

When doing this, it’s great to have a reminder to come to this state of slow time again…I like to clench my left fist either quickly or slowly and with great deliberation.

This reminds my mind to pay deep attention to slowing time down whilst my perceptions become faster and far more detailed. The first few times I have to replay very quickly a few scenes where time slowed down.

Some of these are experiences of slow time in my life mixed with good feelings…others I copied shamelessly from a few movies where time was slowed down and greater depth and detail could be seen easily as there was plenty of slow time to see them all in.


Next I would concentrate on noticing that I could see more deeply…and more clearly.

You can do the same if you wish…Just concentrate on something that has detail…and notice more detail to it. More contrast…deeper details…lines…shadows…contrasts…subtle shades…let other ideas of what you can simply see come to mind now…as perhaps slow time can aid you here as well….seeing more deeply can become part of this and seeing more deeply can make slow time come naturally now to you..unconsciously you may become aware of other possibilities as you can already hear more deeply and in great depth…and seeing more deeply can become part of this one special state of slow time.

Ever noticed how hearing and seeing more deeply gives a deep illusion of slow time that gives you all the time in the world to easily catch a ball…what would happen if you chose now to decide that deliberately and easily following all these ideas and suggestions that would give you an experience that could be great fun to develop naturally for yourself whenever now and in the immediate future you could feel like it?

If you’ve ever noticed things out of the corner of your eye…you may notice that you can fix your gaze to one spot or a small area now…and notice what you can also see to one side…the other side…above…and below the spot you are looking at….make this easy for yourself by simply picking a spot and noticing what details you can see whilst fixing your sight only to one place and not moving your eyes…this is a sense of seeing more widely now…this is easy of course to expand is it not?

 If you consider perhaps expanding this width of sight more and more until your whole vision is completely clear and detailed…you may be saying to me now that the edges cannot see details and only the centre does…and you would be right to notice now great depths and clarity to the subtle distinctions you can make in the centre of your vision..just like deep meditation in a way…and you can then notice what is highly detailed in the edges of your vision…this detail is movement…colours…shades…even if you may not get quite the same clarity as in the centre you can still see plenty.

 If you are looking at a person you will see their breathing rate if you pay attention to their shoulders or closing….you can notice foot movements and hand gestures…yet you are seeing their face in great depth….


Of course your eyes will move around quite naturally if you are talking to someone or simply observing them and this depth and clarity is easy to carry around with this natural vision now…consider how you can keep hold of the width and depth of slow time vision…what would happen if you set out to deliberatly make the best of these suggestions work even more deeply now for you?…

Could you catch balls thrown faster?

Duck a punch easier when sparring…know exactly when it was going to happen before it even happened…perhaps your intuition would be faster…and deeper…whilst the world and the other person slowed down…

Some folks suggestion the things on the outside edges of vision speed up and in the centre slow right down…however this to my experience would limit itself unless this was simply the idea that the centre of your mind can become super fast…and the edges slow right down….I’d consider this as only a helpful feeling if it is a helpful feeling…and you can easily reject exactly what does not work..and keep only what speeds you up and slows time down more and more now..for you..

You can make phrases alone be perfect reminders for you…as I’ve suggested already…seeing more deeply…or see more deeply….hear more deeply….feel more deeply….feel your awareness expand and ripple outwards now….and add all this….to slow time….slow time …now …. the seconds…the beats…have spaces where you feel hear or even see them slow time down further now…

The fist clench in the left hand…or the right if you wish…can be a perfect reminder…use it the first time you get this feeling solid…read to the end….get the sense easily and quickly…and make the fist a tactile reminder if you wish to access slow time…any time you wish now…

Yet you notice, you may read this without trying to not now make this work any way that pleases you and have some effect…or you could become intensely curious as to what would happen if you decided now that paying deeper attention to the slow time now that you can personally create easily for yourself by following along and playing around with this could give you an interesting and possibly highly useful new state of mind…a state you can pop and in out of at will…slow time and closing the left fist will remind your brain, eyes, ears and body of how to go into it…and perhaps give yourself your own reminder of “normal now” to come back to standard ordinary and perhaps a little dull awareness if you really wish to.

Of course, an exciting totally focussed slow time state can become very natural very useful and easily deeper and clearer the longer you deliberatley focus on now and detailed slow time state. Flowers become incredibly beautiful, as do trees, buildings, cars, clouds, sky, things, animals and especially people.


As you read you might like to become aware of some new possibilities or you can be curious as to reread what you may have missed out how to do earlier before rereading this section now…this section simply talks about the possibility of body language…and heightened receptivity to body language, tones and small tiny details that only slow time detailed receptive curious states of now slow time could sense and pickup on.

An observation for you…intuition is what becomes more and more sensitive when you use slow time to observe people in great depth. Some people can naturally access easy intuition and times when they remember now past intuition episodes and get the feeling of knowing and being right.

That state…has a place in you, it may be a feeling too…a sensation…a hearing or a sight…or a combination of all of these…it may too be a sequence of feelings and sensations that have to happen a particular way…maybe you know the term gut feeling.

This is a common place for intuition to come out…all those signals that the conscious mind doesn’t normally pay attention to…the greater mind does and tells you with the body…a fleeting sensation or a big sensation or somewhere moving in between…however way I describe it you can sense the feeling of your own form of correct intuition and when that intuition wasn’t correct…

Slow time can increase, turn up the volume or gain on that correct intuition easily now if you wish to observe the responses in people.

Seeing more deeply…and seeing more widely becomes highly useful and is part of slow time if now you notice that you can notice all kinds of details in your wider vision…the sides of your eyes as well as the top and bottom limits of your vision…everything can gain an intensity of detail as your vision can deepen and expand only as quickly as you can notice sounds and tones more deeply now and slow time becomes slower yet as all your attention becomes deeply focussed on the sense of slow time…deeper wider vision and deeper wider hearing….

Ever notice how the ripples from a pebble thrown into a still pond spread…gently and definitly…ripplingly and evenly across the pond? Imagine that your state of slow time…is you..the pebble…only the ripples is your expanding awareness now of everything you can see…everything you didn’t notice until now…your vision widening…deepening…gaining depth and detail…your hearing…gaining clarity…depth…detail…you can feel and hear subtle tiny differences…without getting tied up in any one instead noticing them all…almost like you made the world nearly stop now…in deep slow time…every sound has a space to it..a space around it even…every detail perhaps glows…shouts at you…you can hear with the feelings in your body even…your sight and your sense of deep feel in the body perhaps can seem to join as your body becomes lighter….gaining depth and a sensitivity to the space and place around you…the ripples of your awareness resonating back to you and back out again…maybe like radar or sonar….your sight noticing everything in incredibly high definition depths that perhaps you didn’t realise you could pay such deep attention to them before…

As you read on you can find if you wish now to link all these sensations back to the sense now of the term slow time and of clenching the left fist only as fast as you can easily get into the slow time state with incredible high definition and detailed sight and hearing..not to mention not now thinking of the depth of feeling detail that can join easily to deep wide vision and detailed ultra clear hearing…what happens if you now set out to make this deliberately work as you consider rereading this particular passage a few more times until you definitely get it now…

As you watch anyone you interact with…the intuition sense you have can expand as much as you wish it to..and only as fast as your slow time increases…this allows you to deliberately become aware of the way each person’s body language is only theirs and worth paying deep attention to with your greatly enhanced sight and feel…responses in their face, eyes and body maybe big…huge…small…tiny…and you may notice how they form patterns in motion…flows…rivers of clusters of gestures and expressions that often occur in rhythms and sometimes out of rhythm. You may notice too that these alter in response to what they say…what you say…what you know they are certain of….what you know they are not sure of…perhaps you may notice sometimes that a certain gesture cluster was out of time…not quite right..your intuition and your slow time sight join together to notice this too…

Perhaps you can get a feeling of reaching out with a gentle golden bubble around you and the other person when you consider slow time just now…this simply guides one part of your mind to allow you to subtly experience a little of what the other person is feeling….you may gently imagine being in their body….gesturing a little and taking a little of their posture…if they are facing you…this you would do gently and subtly to get a sense of how they feel for just a long second of your slow time…if they are facing away you may choose to do it a little more to get a deeper sense…just to see how close you can get…

Each time you try this, it gets easier…you can slow time when you wish…deepen sight, widen sight now…deepening your hearing easily now…add greater depth and width of feelings….make your new slow time awareness become deeper and deeper now as you realise your slow time can ripple like the pebbles action on the surface of a pond…throughout the room or space you are in…and bounce back and force expanding and increasing your awareness and detail as much as you need….sometimes just to the person you are with…other times to the whole place you are in….

Sometimes explaining things that you are to learn how to experience and choose to use for yourself can require language that is consciously confusing to the conscious mind that the unconscious can easily decide how to use and untangle for itself…especially when you decide to reread to find the most useful parts of it for yourself.

Can you imagine easily in the future what events or places you could use this sense in? How about playing out a scene now of a time in the future when and where you could deliberately use this new skill? How about tennis, football, martial arts, making a speech, meeting new people, driving, or anywhere else where deeper awareness and more personal time would allow you greater ability to perform and respond…can you place yourself now in a few situations…can you rehearse deliberately creating slow time now and making the reminders work easily and quickly for you?

When you learnt to drive a car, you had to practice the clutch and accelerator a few times to get the hang of it…yet it didn’t take long…and this is the same.

You can easily practice the skill in your mind now many times..and make it more real and natural each time you do it…

You will find that you have lots of time you spend in the very present moment…as you would make each moment longer and slower and longer and slower…more detailed…more depth…more real….and slower…there’s  more space….more time…more clarity….more vision…slow time…can become…very easily…more natural…any time…you choose…now …..to create…this sense…this new…awareness…that….you ….can … make….very …….easy …..now…

If you wish….time can be either stretched now….or you can practice in your mind future times when you need to be able to stretch time more and more detailed now….either way…you can acquire this skill….only as quickly as you really want or consider you need too…..you may notice that focussing so deeply on the now….has other interesting effects…..the person you are with may become the centre of your world for the time they need to be…or the external world IS the centre of your world for the time you wish it to be…and you can only notice as much of your internal feelings as you need to be completely aware of your intuition and sense of how you feel as you respond to the new information you are easily able to become aware of when slow time is present now for you….

Finally…as you choose whether or not to keep slow time now for yourself or go about your normal business whilst having deeper awareness of your senses and sense of time…I will leave you with a few reminders…that take you back into slow time more deeply each time you choose to slow time for yourself now and in the future…

See more deeply…..allows you to see everything in incredible depth and detail…the way an artist perhaps sees…or the way you might imagine becoming incredibly aware of every tiny detail in the centre of your vision…

See more widely….allows you to notice everything else not in the centre of your vision…the movements and sense of things around the detailed central vision of seeing more deeply…you can see movements of body language…note movements of other things…trees…grass….cars…other people…other things…whilst holding the sense of seeing more deeply and intensely…

Feel more deeply…allows the sense of feel to expand with the sense of seeing more deeply…like having a body that can reach out further and ripple around and expand outwards from you…a sense that can come from your stomach, head, hands and whole body…it can act almost like a sonar pulse a few times…until you become aware of everything around you in great depth ….

Hear more deeply…this may be the first thing you notice…as this allows you to find the space between ticks of a second hand on a clock that creep and creep more slowly…as you hear the silence between sounds..whether it is a clock, music or the changes and speed in tempo of a person’s voice…or the beat of an engine…this hearing more deeply allows you to detect finer and finer changes in any voice you wish….

Slow time….allows you to slow time down…speeding up your senses…yet paradoxically everything feels soooo much slower….and you realise you must have speeded up for everything to slow down so much now….this rolls together the ripples on a pond of your awareness…of seeing more deeply…of seeing more widely…of hearing more deeply….and of feeling more deeply…and becoming more and more aware of what you hadn’t been aware of before…of noticing patterns and flows of body language….tones…words and phrases….facial expressions and gestures that seem incredibly clear and new to you until you get used to this clarity and depth being normal as you practice slow time more and more and more….

Clenching a fist is one example of a reminder you can use…an anchor in the body you can use..however you may wish to choose any other unique gesture you wish..you can rewrite this text easily now to suit you in exactly which way you wish to remind yourself physically…a clenched fist can be clenched in any way and at any speed…for any amount of discretion as needed….


This is now the end of the slow time instructions…and you don’t’ have to consider remembering or not as you wish to reread this in any way you like to make it the most useful you can..it’s up to you….

A final word. Time distortion is discussed extensively in hypnotic literature and other forms of time distortion do exists…they are all ways of changing your perceptions..nothing mystical…and they are something fun and natural…next time you watch an engrossing movie or show, you’ll notice that time distortion works the other way too…the trick is to slow time precisely to something you want to experience for longer and longer…something pleasant…can you think of anything that would be soooo fun to make last in your mind for a very long time?

If you can’t….check your pulse 🙂
