Sanober  Khan
“One clear moment, one of trance
One missed step, one perfect dance
One missed shot, one and only chance
Life is all...but one fleeting glance.”
Sanober Khan

Daphne du Maurier
“He had the face of one who walks in his sleep, and for a wild moment the idea came to me that perhaps he was not normal, not altogether sane. There were people who had trances, I had surely heard of them, and they followed strange laws of which we could know nothing, they obeyed the tangled orders of their own sub-conscious minds. Perhaps he was one of them, and here we were within six feet of death.”
Daphne du Maurier, Rebecca

“Dissociation, a form of hypnotic trance, helps children survive the abuse…The abuse takes on a dream-like, surreal quality and deadened feelings and altered perceptions add to the strangeness. The whole scene does not fit into the 'real world.' It is simple to forget, easy to believe nothing happened.”
Renee Fredrickson, Repressed Memories: A Journey to Recovery from Sexual Abuse

“Escape from reality. In some instances, dissociation induces people to imagine that they have some kind of mastery over intractable environmental difficulties. Dissociation is often implicated in magical thinking or self-induced trance states. This aspect of dissociation is frequently found in abuse survivors. It is not uncommon for abused children to engage in magical thinking to retain an illusion of control over the situation (e.g., believing that they "cause" the perpetrator to act out).”
Marlene Steinberg

Milton H. Erickson
“You use hypnosis not as a cure but as a means of establishing a favorable climate in which to learn.”

Michael Bassey Johnson
“Don't drive a car in the dream, else you won't drive it on earth. Don't wish to become, else you won't become. Don't associate with fools, else your ancestors will be insulted. Don't be addicted to wine, else your pocket will be empty. Don't be drunk, else you'll be attacked.”
Michael Bassey Johnson

“Music That Brings, The Meaning Of our Life.
Music That Shows, The Light From Our Soul.

When This Music Touch Our Hear, We call it TRANCE.
When This Music Control Our Emotion We call it "THE SENSATION OF TRANCE”

T.S. Eliot
“Let us take the air, in a tobacco trance,
Admire the moments
Discuss the late events,
Correct our watches by the public clocks.
Then sit for half an hour and drink our bocks.”
T.S. Eliot, Prufrock and Other Observations

“He really did do something to me, and I was too busy falling for it to realize what it was. Good job on a beautiful web, spider.
Excerpt from Rise Above Twilight”

Wayne  Lee
“Healing is not a ‘black and white’ process, it’s not even a ‘grey’ process, it more like a; ‘pinky, yellowy, orangy, greeny, bluey and purply’ process with a hint of ‘gold and silver’ and a huge jar of ‘faith”

“Music gives that sounds windy with humming sound, such can put you in a trance, only to come back and discover some witty ideas.”

“You won't become what you want to be, else you become what you fear to be.”

Frank Herbert
“She rides the sandworm of space!
She guides through all storms
Into the land of gentle winds.
Though we sleep by the snake's den,
She guards our dreaming sould.
Shunning the desert heat,
She hides us in a cool hollow.
The gleaming of her white teeth
Guides us in the night.
By the braids of her hair
We are lifted to heaven!
Sweet fragrance, flower-scented,
Surrounds us in her presence.”
Frank Herbert, Dune Messiah

Eknath Easwaran
“Lovers of God possess intense concentration. In prayer their attention rivets itself so completely onto God that nothing can tear it away. Even a suggestion of the divine may draw them into a higher state of consciousness. Occasionally this can be somewhat inconvenient. Sri Ramakrishna once went to see a religious drama produced by his disciple. The curtain went up and a character started singing the praises of the Lord. Sri Ramakrishna immediately began to enter the supreme state of consciousness. The stage faded; the actors and actresses faded. As only a great mystic can, he uttered a protest: "I come here, Lord, to see a play staged by my disciple, and you send me into ecstasy. I won't let it happen!" And he started saying over and over, "Money...," so as to keep some awareness of the temporal world.”

Alex Buchinsky
“Life itself moves so fast and is so mystical we often easily slip into a force-fed trance that enables us to do only a couple of basic actions, which is essentially to survive and spectate.”
K. Conley

Colossus: The X-Men need me. But as I said...
Trance: Yeah, they don't trust you. I got it.
Colossus: What would Wolverine do?
Trance: He'd team up with a teenage girl and go kill bad guys.”

S. Kelley Harrell, M. Div.
“Unless we can interpret that ecstatic trip in a way that better grounds our physical reality, trance isn’t worth much.”

Annie Proulx
“... Most often it was Mrs. Moosup doing overtime in a trance of electronic color and simulated life, smoking cigarettes and not wondering.”
Annie Proulx, The Shipping News

Aleister Crowley
“Those, therefore, who effect to despise "profane" Science are themselves despicable. It is their own incapacity for true Thought of any serious kind, their vanity and pertness; nay more also! their own subconsciousness sense of their own shame and idleness, that induces them to build these flimsy fortification of pretentious ignorance.”
Aleister Crowley, Little Essays Toward Truth

Marcus Speh
“Gerbert, by the window, shuddered; his mouth contorted. The witch began to twist faster and faster while her twin was talking to Gisela, mumbling to her, marching old holy words straight through the child’s ear into her skull, where they entered the bloodstream and looked for the enemy. The monk’s fingers twitched in the same rhythm and he found himself falling into a trance. He knew it would be dangerous to witness the witches brewing and dancing but there was an energy in it that he’d missed badly since he’d been asked to educate the young princess. Gerbert didn’t even notice when the hags stopped, tucked the girl in, rubbed the concoction on her lips and left for the unseen place from which they had come. Gisela healed quickly thereafter: The fever fell that same night and she asked for solid food the next morning. She had no memory of what had happened, but when she bounced on one leg across the meadow in the castle yard, she chanted a little melody that had not been heard in church, an odd melody that made Gerbert’s ears prick up because he sensed the uncanny in it.”
Marcus Speh, GISELA

Olga Trujillo
“Sometimes a stare comes from too much anxiety or stress. Your system can become overwhelmed." I didn't know it then. but parts inside were scared because he was looking at us so closely. He's getting too close. He's going to find out about us. I didn't make the effort to try to catch any of these thoughts.”
Olga Trujillo, The Sum of My Parts: A Survivor's Story of Dissociative Identity Disorder

“Maybe in another life I was a drag, maybe I was just a shadow.”

Pragya Tiwari
“And the whole world is diminishing behind. It feels like a trance. Everything is coming to a center point and to this focal point.”
Pragya Tiwari, Outlet from Loneliness

Paul    Lynch
“Meditation forms a part of my daily life and it guides my mind into the necessary space for writing. It seems that I enter some kind of alertful trance when I work. I become the moment in which I am writing. And yet I am there, the author, standing in the river and meddling with the flow.”
Paul Lynch

“The sagas, however, do not mention any entheogens in any context that I can discover: the special meal prepared for the seeress in Eiriks saga rauöa is of the hearts of animals and is eaten the night before her seiör is to occur. References to drinking in the Eddas (e.g. Mimir's well, the mead of poetry) are ambiguously metaphorical at best (though in a highly speculative mode, Steven Leto (2000) suggests that the use of both A. muscaria and R semilanceata may be represented metaphorically in various poems or sagas). Archaeology, however, gives some evidence, from several hundred henbane seeds found in the pouch of a burial considered to be that of a seeress (Price, pers. com.) and a very small number of cannabis seeds present in the Oseberg burial (often considered to be that of a seeress or a priestess), carefully Placed, Neil Price tells me, between the cushions and feathers piled by the bed.”

Laurence Galian
“People are constantly going in and out of trance. When someone is staring out a window or reading a book and does not notice another person entering the room, or the passage of time, this is an example of trance. When we go to a movie, our minds enter the trance state, temporarily permitting ourselves to enter into the world of the film, and losing track of what is going on around us... We say we suspend judgment, but in reality the film entrances us, so that we agree with the premise of the reality portrayed in the film.”
Laurence Galian, Beyond Duality: The Art of Transcendence

Laurence Galian
“Often people who try self-hypnosis, but find it does not produce the results they wish, are entering weak trance states that are vague and drowsy. This is due to the large amount of so-called professional hypnotists who open treatment centers or who make self-help CD's, but who have not grasped (and honestly are afraid of) the enormous power of trance. This is also due to the popular misconception that hypnosis is a form of sleep. These professionals fear putting their subjects into profound trances.”
Laurence Galian, Beyond Duality: The Art of Transcendence
