The Hypnotic Influence of Winnie The Pooh

“You can't stay in your corner of the Forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh



Winnie The Pooh is a classic figure in the childhood of many people. Even if they did not read the books, see the cartoons, or get exposed to live action Pooh through Disney the character of Pooh is very familiar. The language used is both simple and encouraging one to go into trance to process it. The language patterns used can be found in myth, hypnotic language, fairy tales, NLP, parables, guided meditation, and poetry. One of my favorite book series is the Tao of Pooh because it examines the philosophy and structure of how we live. I am a Taoist that seeks tools of harmony. What I have found with the work of Pooh is ready made language to inspire natural trance.

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

The themes that are touched on in these books encourage us to rediscover our world, go on journeys, talk with friends, and imagine seeing and acting in new ways just because we are playing.

“People say nothing is impossible, but I do nothing every day.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

When it comes to being an adult and engaging with seduction, romance, and some post hypnotic commands Pooh is right there with us too. Everyone misses someone and it is just empty space between us.

“I think we dream so we don’t have to be apart for so long. If we’re in each other’s dreams, we can be together all the time.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

I have found fun examples to redirect people to get out of their own head's when talking with others from Pooh. Pooh is about universal experiences and that is one element we use to connect with people.

“If the person you are talking to doesn't appear to be listening, be patient. It may simply be that he has a small piece of fluff in his ear.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Pooh has helped me be more at ease while being lost in subject's as well as in geography. These simple quotes fill me with happiness and balance me in the moment.

“I'm not lost for I know where I am. But however, where I am may be lost.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Pooh has helped me put people at ease while learning about hypnosis and BDSM skills. There are times when we have so many questions that it makes it hard to listen. The questions just get repeated in ones mind, but when it comes time for comfortable stories and conversation the urgency seems slip away.

“Some people talk to animals. Not many listen though. That's the problem.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

When it comes down to needing to be heard and supported from others none of us get that 100% every time. In those moments hearing something about a character that is being taken care in a way that matters to him, not the other person touches us.

“I don’t feel very much like Pooh today," said Pooh.

"There there," said Piglet. "I’ll bring you tea and honey until you do.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

There have been times that I wanted to watch what I ate. My focus had to shift from satiation to sampling, and still Pooh could understand. I have used this passage to redirect someone to anticipation and shift to mindful eating many times.

“Well," said Pooh, "what I like best," and then he had to stop and think. Because although Eating Honey was a very good thing to do, there was a moment just before you began to eat it which was better than when you were, but he didn't know what it was called.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

Each of us has picked up on the many cues that signal a call to action is upon us. I've used Pooh to start out a hypnotic adventure and discover where that led us together.

“When you see someone putting on their Big Boots, you can be pretty sure that an Adventure is going to happen.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh

I hope you can see that Pooh has a place within your art and communication patterns. Hypnosis is something I enjoy as an art and I'm playing with it constantly. The adventures of Pooh can also be perceived as the hypnotic adventures of a very wise bear. I hope I have persuaded you to look at Winnie The Pooh for inspiration in your hypnotic learning as well.

“What I like doing best is Nothing."

"How do you do Nothing," asked Pooh after he had wondered for a long time.

"Well, it's when people call out at you just as you're going off to do it, 'What are you going to do, Christopher Robin?' and you say, 'Oh, Nothing,' and then you go and do it.

It means just going along, listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering."

"Oh!" said Pooh.” ― A.A. Milne, Winnie-the-Pooh
