Ganzfeld Goggles- Secret to Psychic Abilities?
I have a pair of Ganzfeld Goggles just like this;
There are claims that Ganzfeld goggles can help drive a person into a deep state of trance, and make meditation even deeper, because they block out all light and create a single field of vision that has been known to cause hallucinations.

ESP: One Step Forward, One Back |
The credibility of ESP leaped forward in 1994 when a prestigious journal published by the American Psychological Association printed an article summarizing past studies of ESP as statistically convincing.
The type of experiment analysed was the one the U.S. government has identified as most promising: the ?Ganzfeld,? where the sender, in one room, stares at a photo or watches a video, while the receiver, in another room, wears colored goggles, relaxes with open eyes while free associating aloud.
The 1994 article was written by the late parapsychologist Charles Honorton and Cornell University psychologist Daryl Bem, giving it further credibility.
A step backward occurred recently as British researchers Julie Milton and Richard Wiseman have published an article in that same journal summarizing the earlier studies, plus all Ganzfeld studies completed since then, and found negative overall results.
In the ensuing debate, all sides agree that one or two large studies can sway the results of the overall average.
In fact, according to a report published in Science News, all agree that if the still newer studies, completed since the writing of the second article, were now included into the mix, the results would be positive.
And now there is a claim that these types of goggles can even help you lose weight-

In this article I'm going to show you how you can create your own "magic glasses" that will put you into a very, very relaxed state of mind. You can put them on when you feel the urge to overeat.

The Author says he will show you how to make these types of goggles and then use them to lose weight.
The instructions however are very simplistic, but maybe they work... still, using Ganzfeld while using hypnosis could still be a useful idea..
