Learning Trance State and Confusion

Learning and confusion

Give me a fruitful error any time, full of seeds, bursting with its own corrections.  You can keep your sterile truth for yourself. 

Vilfredo Pareto (Italian Economist)

Some people will never learn anything, for this reason, because they understand everything too soon. 

Alexander Pope

Some states are better for learning in than others. At the start of each day, consider “what would be the best state for me to learn in be?” Then act throughout the day “as if” you were already in that state. Notice what you do that works and do more of that. The more used to identifying the successes and strategies that lead to my success, the more able I am to employ them and notice when I am not employing them. This gives me the chance to take corrective action from the feedback.

This training may be different from many of the training’s you have been on before. You were learning the most during the first few years of your life, it was a 24/7 workshop and there were no handouts or manuals. You used all your senses; completely immersed yourself in exploring the world, took the knocks and learned from them. Some of the exercises on this course won’t be fully explained before you do them so you may feel a little confused or lost. This is deliberate on our part as sometimes we learn best through wanton experimentation and trying new things. Jump on in and notice what you notice. Also, remember the four stages of learning:

Unconscious incompetence – “I don’t know that I don’t know”

Conscious incompetence – “I know what I want but don’t know how to do it”

Conscious competence – “I know how to do it but I have to think about it”

Unconscious competence – "I know how to do it and dont have to pay concious attention to it"

It’s likely that you will experience all of these stages and some confusion at different parts of the course – this is a perfectly natural part of learning. Remember, confusion is “the gateway to understanding.” If you are completely ignorant, or simply don’t know something, then you can’t be confused! You can only be confused when you have incomplete information and only partial understanding. To be confused you must already know some of the pieces. Confusion is a prelude to integration, and to be welcomed, not avoided!


Acknowledge the state: “I’m confused”, then ask yourself “What else do I need?”

Am I confused because …

There is missing information? (environment)

I don’t know what to do? (behaviour)

I don’t know how to do something? (capability)

It conflicts with my beliefs and values? (beliefs and values)

It’s not in keeping with my sense of self? (identity)

Persons undergoing hypnosis for those reasons choose to reach deeper trance states,.

What is trance?
Some won’t agree with me but I define trance as an altered state of consciousness.
