Laws regarding the use of hypnosis vary throughout the world. It is the reader’s responsibility to understand the governing laws in one’s jurisdiction. It is never ethical to use hypnosis on unsuspecting persons. Hypnotists typically have their own unique "voice style".  If you are uncomfortable with any of these recordings, you may want to try an alternate. The audio files linked from this site are mostly hypnosis files, intended for willing participants of legal age. Hypnosis induces deep states of relaxation. Prior to listening to any hypnotic recordings, one should prepare oneself, as though one were getting ready for sleep. Prepare a comfortable, safe position for oneself. Do not have any food, gum, etc. in one's mouth. Do not listen to hypnosis audio programs or use "Flasher 1.51," when you require alertness (as when driving a motor vehicle), if you are diagnosed with a serious mental health illness, if you are under the influence of any prescription or illicit drugs/alcohol. or if you have any family history of seizure disorders. Allow oneself at least thirty minutes to return to an alert state, after listening to an hypnotic program. Although these programs are designed to create real changes within a person, they are intended for entertainment purposes only. Consultation with a licensed medical and mental health professional is required, prior to use. Although most of these audio files are freely available, via the Internet sites from which they are linked / hosted, they are copyrighted programs from their respective sites, which are for your personal use only.

Although generally safe, similar to the necessity of exercising caution prior to crossing the street, before using hypnosis, one shall yield to the precautions noted herein. Prior to using alternative therapies (hypnosis, acupuncture, etc.), it is important to understand that most have not been fully evaluated scientifically. Therefore, there is limited information, regarding their ultimate safety and efficacy.  Whether-or-not there exists limits, over their scope of clinical application, varies between states and disciplines. If you decide to try alternative therapies, it is recommended that you choose a professional that is state licensed and adheres to organizational standards. Additionally, always consult with your primary care physician, before beginning any new therapies. Visit the following link, for related disclaimers:

CAUTION: "Light & Sound" machines and the "Flasher 1.51" download create their effects by producing flickering lights. You must not use "Light & Sound" machines, the Virtual Light & Sound Machine meditation software, or the "Flasher 1.51" download, if you or a family member have ever suffered from epilepsy, photosensitive epilepsy, photosensitivity, hallucination(s), head injury(s), seizure(s), psychotic episode(s), major mental health problems, a major concussion(s), or other neurological problems. It is possible to be photosensitive and not know it. Do not use the "Flasher 1.51" or Flasher 3000 software on unsuspecting individuals, or those under age 18.  If using the software in a workplace or other public environment, ensure that responsible parties understand these warnings while protecting unsuspecting individuals from inadvertent exposure. If the flashing lights make you experience any abnormal or unusual physical or mental discomfort, disorientation, dizziness, headaches, or other symptoms, immediately discontinue use and consult your physician. Do not use while in motion. It is also recommended that if your computer monitor is a standard CRT, an anti-glare / anti-radiation screen should be used, while using "Flasher 1.51". It is important to understand that "brainwave entrainment" (believed to be the process upon which the Virtual "Light & Sound Machine" Meditation Software relies) is an ongoing, emerging area of research. As such, short and long-term effects of "brainwave entrainment" are not fully understood. As a result, one must use aforementioned precaution and consider any potential risks. Some of the theoretical risks of "brainwave entrainment" also include some of the same risks associated with the use of hypnosis, as mentioned herein.

Templehof Publishers’ Flasher 1.51 helps users experience deep states of relaxation, based upon the phenomenon associated with audio-visual stimulation and brainwave entrainment. Since Flasher 1.51 is a 1990 DOS-based program, it is not compatible with Microsoft Windows operating systems. My original freeware program hosts copies of DOSBox and Flasher 1.51. It is designed to simplify the installation process for these programs, in order for Flasher 1.51 to work on Microsoft Windows 2000 or later. DOSBox is open source software copyrighted by Free Software Foundation, Inc. Flasher 1.51 is shareware that is distributed by Templehof Publishing. Since Flasher 1.51 is shareware, you are required to make a $10 payment to: Templehof Publishing; 2619 Market Garden; Austin, TX  78745.
