Apparently being in an altered state of consciousness opens the door for spirits to access our brains. One point he made was that once a person has had hypnosis, that person's memory is unreliable, no way to know if memories are real or not. This would make it impossible to learn from past experiences which I think is a necessary part of being a Christian.
It seems that psychological drugs could have the same effect; a good reason to never consent to either hypnosis or psychological drugs.
Watching reports of our government pushing the same economical policies that extended the great depression by 7 years, I wonder if the leaders of the country haven't either lost memory or had a false memory inserted.
Yeah, this is kinda what happened recently in the news where people were going to hypnotists to supposed uncover forgotten memories. The weird/sick thing was that most of them ended up claiming that they were molested as children, but that they had just "repressed" the memory. Well a lot of these hypnotised folks ended up going to their parents and accusing them of molesting them as children as the parents listened totally dumbstruck due to the fact that they never did such a thing. I'm not sure what became of this situation, but needless to say I'd stay away from hypnotists and those that frequent them.

For Jesus' sake,
