Sleepwalking in The Extreme – Or A Case of Mind Control?

September 2nd, 2013 by Kennedy

It is estimated that approximately 30% of the population will experience sleep walking at some stage in our life. A person who is sleepwalking will complete activities such as showering, make lunch, walk the dog etc. Some people will even mumble or talk; their eyes glassy and vacant looking – but driving…? Even this is stretching reality for the experts – although they do admit it can happen.

A woman in New Zealand does exactly that (as stated in a recent BBC article here) – she drives over 190 miles to get from her current home to her previous residence. What makes it even more bizarre though, is this woman also sends incoherent texts to her friends!

Now your brain is a hive of activity during the day, controlling everything from your breathing to your emotions. It is said that sleepwalking will occur during the deepest stage of sleep – when your brainwaves are very slow, but your body may still be active – so whilst sleepwalking the person is in a half-way state between sleeping and waking. During sleep your brain is still active enough for you to visualise and imagine various scenarios – known as dreams – whilst awake you also can visualise and imagine various different scenarios.

We also know that hypnosis is a focused, trance-like state, where your mind and body are relaxed – but your brain and imagination are still vividly working. Your conscious mind is suppressed whilst the more instinctive subconscious mind is open, allowing you to get past fear and phobia.

It is agreed that a sleepwalker can complete assorted, relatively complex activities, such as making lunch and showering, do you think it’s considered too much of a stretch to be able to text and/or drive? We all have driven particular routes that are so routine – we complete them on auto-pilot. Do you think this woman is just exhibiting symptoms of stress – and her mind isn’t switching off, allowing her to complete activities that are almost second nature to her anyway? Or it is just a matter of our mind knowing no bounds…?

Kennedy was very professional, really entertaining and completely different to what we have booked in the past in terms of an after dinner speaker and entertainment. The performance amazed the whole audience and really lifted the spirits in the entire room in time for our formal proceedings.I would definitely recommend Kennedy to anyone looking for corporate entertainment.

What a fantastic night’s entertainment Mind of Kennedy provided. Some of the stuff he did is still being talked about at our company days after! Make sure you book him for your corporate event; you won’t be disappointed!

(Feedback about our ruby wedding party last night) – Kennedy was absolutely fantastic. Not only did he work the room really well, and include people from different parts of the room, which is so important, but also he was an absolute delight to work with before, during and after the event... no trouble at all and completely accommodating. The act was tremendous and I love the idea that all our guests are sitting at home today over the Sunday papers, saying "how did he do that?!" I would have no hesitation in recommending Kennedy to anyone I know. Best wishes and thanks again to Kennedy for entertaining all our guests so well at our party. Jane & Pete Bradshaw
