The Entertainment Side Of STAGE HYPNOSIS

Photo  by abbasj812 
There are basically two common aspects of hypnosis, the therapeutic approach and stage hypnosis, which is the entertainment side of hypnosis.

Although science may frown upon stage hypnosis for trying to make fun of the process for entertainment or for profit, it has, in some way helped, in easing public perception of what hypnosis is really all about.

As long as the stage hypnotist does not abuse the ability to explore the minds of his subjects, a practitioner who is responsible enough to respect and give justice to hypnosis can do more good than harm.


Many hypnotherapists believe that a lot of reputable stage hypnotists were responsible for conditioning the minds of people, of course not through actual hypnosis itself, to embrace hypnosis as a form of therapy or treatment for common behavioral problems of men like alcohol and substance addiction, especially smoking.

A lot of stage hypnosis acts commonly involve drunkards going through the stage act to emerge sober towards the end of the process, with some even undergoing altered states that will change their attitudes towards drinking.

Although the process of stage hypnosis itself is a bit disturbing at hindsight, the fact remains that the power of the mind can truly be harnessed.

The fact that some stage hypnosis entertainers continue to promote their trade is on the fact that stage hypnosis allows them to earn big bucks, still, people cannot judge them based on what they do.

As mentioned before, there are stage hypnosis entertainers who continue to give justice to the practice of hypnosis.

Whether it be for entertainment or therapy, stage hypnosis is as equally effective as it is used for therapy.

Many experts and stage hypnotists agree that training for entertainment needs no formal education required, as well as learning all of the applied techniques and approaches to stage hypnosis.

The same fact holds true for stage hypnosis, that 10% of the population are likely to submit to hypnosis since not everyone is susceptible to such.

Stage hypnosis allows an entertainer to be more creative and imaginative, the reason why it has continued to captivate audiences time and again.

A stage hypnotist must remain true to some commitments that need to be strictly adhered to, which is responsibility, accountability, integrity, honesty and respect confidentiality since a stage hypnotist will be responsible for exploring the mind of a subject.

A stage hypnotist must also never try to make fun of subjects during the stage act.

Although entertainment is key, it must never take advantage of a subject that is in a hypnotic state, since it is expected that the stage hypnotist should basically focus on the fact that the basic aim of stage hypnosis for entertainment is to exhibit the capabilities of hypnosis and what it can do to benefit humankind.

If one is interested to try out stage hypnosis, he or she must carefully consider the amount of responsibility that comes along with it and the initial approach is to study the basics of hypnotism, especially with all recommended techniques and processes.

This should then be followed by a great deal of practice, concentration, and experimentation, until such time the candidate is confident enough to perform in front of a group of people.

So try and make the most of the entertainment side of stage hypnosis and you can be on your way to having a great time with hypnosis.

Using HYPNOSIS To Get Mind Power

The 12 steps to acquire mind-power is intended to build positive visuals, acquire mind power and help you achieve your dreams and desires that may be as varied as improving your personality, increasing your wealth, attracting love and making yourself attractive.

Follow these steps I have specifically found to help anyone who is new to Power of Creative Visualization.

Step One: Choose a quiet place, which is free from all distraction, interruption or disturbance. This may even be inside a bus or in your own room. The idea is to be able to concentrate in an environment that you find is suitable. The idea is to be able to concentrate in an environment that you find is suitable. The ideal time, however, I have found to be is, early in the morning or before going to bed. The ideal place, however, may be anywhere as long as you can concentrate.

Step Two: Feel comfortable. Wear loose clothes or else loosen your belt and tie.

Step Three: Be comfortable. Keep your spine straight. Loosen your hands. Relax! This eases your body tension and helps your blood circulate efficiently.

Step Four: Close your eyes. That way your physical world does not interrupt you and you can concentrate on your mental world. But avoid quenching your eyes. Close them gently. In fact, once you focus on your images, you may find your eyes closing naturally.

Step Five: Breath normally. Let your body roll with the rhythm of your breathing. Listen to that rhythm.

Step Six: Now begin the process of visualization. Create the key images of the subject you have chosen. Form the shape. Add color. Build the sound. Sense them! Focus on them. See them as sharply and clearly as you can with your mind's eye.

Step Seven: Put yourself in the images you have created. You must be inside the picture so as to let your subconscious mind know that the image you see that leads to your goal is actually meant for you, and not for anyone else.

Step Eight: Feel the image you have created. Now that you are inside the picture imagine yourself to be leading

the time you see. Feel the environment. Watch how different it feels to lead a life that you had desired. Bring your images alive.

Step Nine: Experience the images with all your emotions. See! Hear! Smell! Feel how it feels to have achieved your goals. Let the excitement and happiness of success flow through you. Let the thrill of success building in you. Feel your success.

Step Ten: Once you have experienced your images with emotion, let your mind go blank. If you hold on to your images for too long, the images might disappear due to overexposure. So, let go of it.

Step Eleven: Create a space in your mind to receive what you desire. Say to yourself that what you desire - like, "I deserve to be healthy", "I deserve to be rich and famous." By doing this, you not only let your subconscious mind support the picture, you literally achieve your success.

Step Twelve: Feel creative while creating the images. I have given you the basic guidelines in the following pages to create visuals that will help you achieve your goals. You may change them accordingly to suit your needs. The more the images meet your specific needs, the more effective they will be.

These then are the twelve important steps to mind-power. Remember, it is better to visualize 2-3 times a day for a shorter duration than to visualize for a long stretch during the day. Doing this, the quality of visuals remain fresh instead of becoming stale and plaid and draining all energy out of you.

Steps one to ten might take you anything between 5-10 minutes. It is better if you do not prolong it. Instead, repeat it at another time of the day.



When you release the image after this brief exercise, your mind will become free of the mind-power you had activated. But your subconscious mind keeps on supporting the image you had seen. This helps your goal and your dreams to be a reality.

The twelve steps to Mind power that I have explained above is the most powerful tool in this world. When you switch on your mind power and extend it to creative visualization for turning your dreams into reality - then, that is exactly what will happen. Your dreams will become reality.

Remember, with your mind, you can rule the world.

HYPNOSIS Learning - Studying Under HYPNOSIS With Your Friend.

 You dreamt you were a hypnotist (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
This article is fully devoted to the topic of studying under hypnosis with your friend. You don't need a professional hypnotist to take advantage of the benefits of learning in trance, just ask your buddy for some help.

If you have a friend that knows how to hypnotize or at least, knows how to read the hypnotic script, you are golden. You can ask him if he would like to try studying under hypnosis with you. Learning with someone you like outside trance, can be very distracting and won't do much good for your education, however studying under hypnosis has only advantages. Presence of the other person allows you to enter trance faster and makes learning more flexible.

The hypnotist is observing progress studying person is making and is able to modify speed at which the studying material is passed. He is also able to use different media to pass the information (word, image, etc.). It is best if only one person is hypnotized at one time, so if you are hypnotized your buddy should get hypnotized another day. Switching roles between hypnotist and student can result in various effects. First, the student may be exhausted after acquiring knowledge, and won't do doo good job as a hypnotist.

It is important that the books are easily accessible and located at your fingertips. Playing recorded study material has one significant drawback, a situation may occur, in which a student will not be able to keep up with the recording. This will result in him not memorizing a lot of information. If this situation occurs and you won't check how much information you've absorbed(an additional loss of time), it may lead to many uncomfortable situations, because you don't posses knowledge you should have.

The part solution to this issue, is playing information slower than the speed at which you are able to absorb it. But in this scenario, you will lose a lot of time on playback. However, this situation is better than the previous case.

The biggest issue with using pre-recorder learning material is, that capability to absorb information by a person in trance can differ from a day or even time of the day. It depends on so many factors that it is nearly impossible to predict it. That is why, it is so important that the other person should observe the way a hypnotized individual reacts and control the speed of learning.


Something you should always do before entering hypnosis and starting to learn is, motivate yourself by repeating positive affirmations like:

- I am glad that I will be taught.

- I find studying pleasurable and I easily absorb new knowledge.

- Learning is easy and fun.

- I will gain a lot of useful information today. I will know more than others.

- Thinking about studying makes me excited.

As you can see studying with your friend is a very complicated process. There is a lot to look out for and you and your friend should plan everything ahead, before putting anything into practice. This should allow you to achieve better results much faster.

HYPNOSIS Can Effectively Help Cure DIABETES

English: Overview of the most significant poss...
Overview of the most significant possible symptoms of diabetes. See Wikipedia: Diabetes#Signs_and_symptoms for references.  (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
Diabetes is now considered to be a worldwide epidemic, which has serious after effects like blindness, kidney failure, impotence that in turn makes the illness out of control. A Hypnotist can definitely help a person with diabetes, as a Hypnotist is considered a stress management consultant and a motivational coach. However, a Hypnotist can only be a part of your diabetes support group and medical approval is required before enlisting yourself for any hypnosis program.

A person with diabetes will be feeling stressed and it may be difficult for him or her to follow the doctor’s advice. They may want to reach out for something which will make them feel better instantly, for instance for a type of food which may not be a good and healthy choice of food. The hypnotist helps in reducing harmful stress. This stress can affect a person’s power to make choices, which are beneficial to their health. If a persons stress levels increase their blood sugar also increases. The body releases chemicals called ‘insulin-antagonists’ which block the insulin and release stored sugar in the liver and muscles.

Parents of children with diabetes create stress both for the parents and for the child. The parents are tense looking after a sick child and the child is stressed because they cannot deal with the overwhelming problem like an adult. For Child Diabetes Management it is essential that expert care should be provided.

As many as 95% of the persons with diabetes have Type-2 Diabetes and they are obese. Regular exercise and diet management for Type-2 Diabetic patients leads to competing for system reduction. There is a need for exercise motivation and weight management. Generally, exercise gives you a sense of well-being and positive in outlook. A Hypnotist can help a person with diabetes to reduce stress and help them commit to making better food choices.


Another personal problem that most diabetes patients face which they feel embarrassed to admit to is impotence. These people and their partners are feeling stressed. They may take medication for this problem, which may be inappropriate and actually may cause damage. As many as 60% of the males face this problem.

A Hypnotist can counsel and train the patients how to manage their diabetes and live a healthy life. Even a small reduction in a diabetic patients sugar level reduces their chances of having complications. There are millions of people who have undiagnosed diabetes. A Hypnotist can be an important part of a Diabetics health care system and help cure diabetes to a certain extent.

Awaken your senses through SELF HYPNOSIS

English: Brain on hypnosis
Brain on hypnosis (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
The modern world has brought people a lot of preoccupation. It made living faster yet complicated, it made interactions wider yet shorter, and it made communication easier yet brief. Despite the so many preoccupations brought by media created by people, there are also those who would want to get back to their original self and connect with it in the most basic possible means. One of these is self-hypnosis. Defined as a "process involving a hypnotist and a subject who agrees to be hypnotized," self-hypnosis is characterized by intense concentration, extreme relaxation, and high suggestibility to both parties.
Experts say that the self-hypnosis is versatile. In fact, its versatility can be quite unparalleled. Today, self-hypnosis can take place in various social settings and continue to change social settings dramatically. Unlike before where settings of self-hypnosis are quite limited, today the sessions between the hypnotist and the subject can take place in common places such as clinics, showrooms, classrooms, and even to open spaces and establishments.

Other experts use self-hypnosis in order to recover suppressed memories of people who have had bad experiences to help them overcome the problems that they are dealing with right now while other psychologists and hypnotherapists use hypnosis to discover hidden truths from a person's ordinary consciousness. This is done by tapping into the unconscious state or mind where information is believed to dwell.

GETTING INTO SELF HYPNOSIS

Many perceive that self-hypnosis as a trance-like altered state of a person's consciousness while others believe that it is a way of accessing a person's unconscious mind that is filled to suppressed memories, repressed multiple personalities, various magical insights, and unforgettable memories of the past life. But, in the world of psychology, self-hypnosis is considered as altered state and gateway to knowledge about one's self and the universe he or she is living in.



Today, self-hypnosis is not only used for treating various behavioral problems but also for self-enhancement and improvement. If you are planning to get into hypnosis or self-hypnosis, there are so many things you need to consider. Experts say that self-hypnosis is one of the excellent ways of taking control over one's life.  In fact, it can be used as means of disciplining yourself if you want to achieve a specific goal. For some people, self-hypnosis is advisable if you want to achieve something and utmost dedication and discipline is needed. Hypnosis introduction can benefit those who would want to lose or gain weight; those who want to boost their self-confidence; and those who would want to overcome their fears or phobias because it can help them contemplate a lot on the things that they need to do.

If you are planning to get a course on self-hypnosis, you can expect that it can teach you to reach your subconscious mind through bypassing your conscious mind as well as how to communicate with your subconscious mind, methods of creating your own hypnosis scripts and visualizations, how to design and use affirmations, the effects and use of symbols on the subconscious mind, how to understand which methods will be most effective for you personally, deepening your trance state and using visualizations, adapting to scripts to suit various problems, how to change your personal history and plan a more effective future and how to understand your dreams as well.

Develop Unlimited Creativity Through SELF-HYPNOSIS


Artistic and creative talent is not limited to select individuals - everyone has infinite creative potential. Though everyone has "the gift", few people naturally tap into their vast reservoir of creative energy naturally, without being "taught" how to do so.


If you want to increase your creativity, then you will be excited to learn that one of the leading hypnotherapists in the world today has focused his creative energy on helping you increase your creative energy. Steve G. Jones has dedicated his life to understanding how people learn and bringing them the tools to bring about positive change in their life. He is also one of the leading hypnotherapists in the world with impeccable credentials. And the reason he has chosen to focus on hypnosis as his primary tool to help people learn is that it can be used by anyone, nearly anywhere, with very little effort, for incredible results!

That's because our mind controls nearly every facet of our lives, whether we realize it or not. Though many of us have convinced ourselves that we are not talented or "creative", that is a fallacy. Everyone, including you, can be more creative, and hypnosis recordings are the easiest way ever discovered to tap into your creative energy.

Perhaps you have a project due for school, or work, or just a labor of love, such as a painting, book, or musical composition that you have undertaken, but for whatever reason, you seem to be stuck? Steve's new "Power Your Mind to Discover Unlimited Creativity" is a powerful new program created specifically by Steve to help you express your natural creativity.



It was recorded in Steve's state of the art recording facility built specifically to provide you with the highest quality, lowest cost, most effective self-hypnosis recordings ever developed specifically to improve creativity. Steve himself has increased his own creativity immensely through hypnosis, and he has created Mp3 recordings that you listen to at night before bed to help you unlock your dormant potential, or help you "unblock" the creativity that may naturally flow for you. Either way, the benefits are fully guaranteed, and his program is like no other.

Five Elements of SUBLIMINAL HYPNOSIS

Subliminal Reviews & Subliminal Software Feature Image

Subliminal hypnosis (sometimes called covert hypnosis) talks straight to our sub-conscious mind. Our subconscious mind is always listening. It perceives everything around us. Subliminal hypnosis techniques can also be used for self- hypnosis but that is not the focus of this article.

Subliminal hypnosis talks directly to our subconscious minds. Subliminal hypnosis makes use of certain techniques in order to have this conversation with our subconscious. These elements are
* Intimacy
* Emotional appeal
* A direct and simple style
* Using images
* Repetition
You can use these five elements of subliminal hypnosis to influence those around you.

Create intimacy
This is sometimes called creating rapport. By creating intimacy, you create a sense of connection and trust. How do you create intimacy? You can do it by asking questions. Or you can tell someone a story. You can also use quotations in order to create a perception of dialogue.

Why make an emotional appeal?
If you ask someone why they did something or bought a product they will nearly always give you a rational reason based on the benefits of the action or the product. But that is not the reason that they did it. The real reason someone does something or buys a product is that of the way it makes them feel.

Use a direct, simple style
If someone understands you, they are more likely to listen to you. What's the first step to persuading someone about anything? It's getting them to listen to you, right? By using short and easy to understand words and sentences you are more likely to hold someone's attention and convince them.

Use images
People do not think in words. We think in pictures. If I say the word apple to you, you see a picture of an apple in your mind. You do not list the words that could describe the apple you immediately see the image of the apple. It is the same when you talk to someone. For every word that you say their subconscious is flashing an image associated with that word across their minds without them being aware of it.
How do you use images? The most common way is by making use of similes and metaphors. If I say John is as brave as a lion you immediately form a mental image of a strong and brave man.

Repeat yourself
The more someone hears or reads something the more inclined they are to believe it. (Perhaps that is why rumors survive for so long?) It does not matter if they hear or read it in the same place. Each time a fact is repeated more weight is attached to it. The trick here is to describe the same thing in a different way.

    Trisha Cornelius believes that your mind has the power to influence your reality and that there are various techniques that you can use to harness your mind power.

Basic methods for SELF-HYPNOSIS

Hipnosis
Photo  by Pdro (GF) 
As defined, self-hypnosis--also called "autohypnosis"--refers to a form of hypnosis where self-induction is used. Here, the person who practices self-hypnosis uses "autosuggestion" or self-suggestion to be able to adjust or overcome certain conditions or situations. In most cases, self-hypnosis is used as a therapeutic supplement along with hypnotherapy.

Before getting into self-hypnosis the best way to go is to research about it thoroughly first. Through research, you can get extensive information about the practice and you will have a better understanding how it would benefit you the most. You can do your research by getting online and surf websites that offer information aligned with the practice. Because of the easy access to information today, you can get almost anything you need to know about it in an instant. In fact, with so many pieces of information about it, you might be overwhelmed. It would be better to be specific on the topics that you really would want to know about so you won't be wasting your time searching for seeming list of sites. 

Aside from the Internet, you can also get information on various books as well as different magazines. Here, you can find interesting articles that can give you a better understanding of the practice especially on the methods that can be used according to the level of skills of the person. 

If you are planning to conduct self-hypnosis at home, it is best to ask people who have been practicing it for the basic methods that you can use. If you personally know people who are doing self-hypnosis, it is best to get first-hand information from them. Although you can get it also from the practitioners outside, it is still better if you get the facts straight from the people that you know. By doing this, you can get the best tips and advice on how to start with the practice and carry on with it for your personal as well as spiritual growth. Once enough information has been gathered, one can now start with self-hypnosis. 

Methods that are being used in self-hypnosis 

Experts in this field say that for self-hypnosis to be successful, one should rely on the basic methods and learn them well. A considerable amount of knowledge on the basic methods will somehow help him or she is more familiar with the process and eventually be able to do it easier.


Today, most of the self-hypnosis methods and techniques that are used may include induction procedures, methods for communicating with the subconscious part of the person's mind and suggestion formulation and application. Here are two of the most commonly used methods for self-hypnosis:

1. Self Hypnosis induction script. This refers to the induction talk for people who will be practicing self-hypnosis. For many people, they can use this as a guide to thinking their way down. In many instances, this is being recorded and can only be listened to during the practice itself.  

2. Autoquestioning. This refers to the set of methods and techniques that are used to get information right from the person's subconscious mind. Many people who practice self-hypnosis use its subset, ideomotor questioning the most because the information gathered here is primarily used for correcting suggestions to change as well as acceptance and confirming of the person's subconscious.

7 Important Rules For Self Hypnosis Scripts That Really Work


Self-hypnosis is an effective way to re-program your mind by communicating directly with the emotion-based subconscious mind. You can change your behavior and alter your deep-set beliefs and habits by making direct suggestions to your subconscious mind while under a state of hypnosis.

However, to make self-hypnosis (or hypnotizing others) work, you must communicate using the language of the emotion-based subconscious mind.

The 7 critical rules for writing self-hypnosis scripts that really work are presented below:

1. Always word your self-hypnosis scripts for positive change. Saying you will stop, lose, or not do something is negative; your mind first has to visualize doing something and then take the negative to comprehend this kind of commands. This means the mind first reinforces doing the undesired activity before it can interpret not doing it. Instead of saying you will lose weight, eat less, or stop eating sweets, say you will become lean, eat healthily, or increase your metabolism.

2. Repeat suggestions frequently to maximize effect but avoid clichés. Find multiple ways to reiterate the same concept several times throughout your self-hypnosis scripts.

3. Personalize suggestions to deal specifically with current goals. In your recorded self-hypnosis scripts, do not say "you are"; instead say "I am". To increase effectiveness, direct the subconscious mind to repeat your suggestions quietly to itself in the first person.

4. Use a detailed, progressive approach that flows along a logical growth path when creating your self-hypnosis scripts. For example, - I am steadily losing weight every day to reach my ideal weight of 115 pounds - is better than saying - I will lose weight. The first case presents a progressive suggestion with a time factor and an end goal as a target. The second case is negative and has no definitive goal. This is one of the most important rules for self-hypnosis scripts that really work.

5. Ensure all suggestions are simple, clear, & in the present or progressive tense. Never refer to past conditions, and use progressive case (i.e., using action verbs ending in -ing-; becoming, growing, & getting are a few goods examples) to bypass the critical conscious mind.

6. Use visualizations; make the subject see himself or herself after the change has occurred (or as the change is occurring). Also use words that engage emotions such as vibrant, sparkling, thrilling, wonderful, powerful, radiant, loving, generous, exciting, delightful, and beautiful. The more vivid and dramatic the image, the more effective it will be since visualizations are suggestions.

7. Direct the subject to reflect on the results of the change after your self-hypnosis scripts have finished making all the suggestions. You can direct the subject to reflect while still in a hypnotic trance or immediately after waking up. Either way, the subject should sit quietly and envision himself or herself after the change while the hypnotist says nothing.



All 7 of these rules are not required to succeed with hypnosis, and you may find most self-hypnosis scripts commercially available do not contain all these elements. However, if you follow all 7 rules in the scripts you write for yourself, you will see dramatically improved results from your self-hypnosis scripts.

    By Dr. Bryan Stoker

Agoraphobia & Panic Attacks and HYPNOSIS & NLP

A twist in time
Twist in Tine - Photo  by Alan Cleaver 
Agoraphobia is one of the most debilitating of all phobias. This comes from an irrational fear of unfamiliar or potentially uncomfortable situations and can escalate to the point where a sufferer only feels safe inside their home. If you suffer from agoraphobia, you don't need to let this condition rule your life. You can understand this phobia and find out how to beat it by using hypnosis therapy.

The word agoraphobia means "fear of the marketplace," but individuals may feel anxious in any location with a crowd. These places are often public areas or new locations away from home. Sufferers may be afraid of being in lines, shopping centers, airplanes, restaurants, or any scenario where they might not be completely safe.

Those with agoraphobia are scared of having panicky feelings or anxiety attacks in a situation where it would be hard or impossible for them to leave. Agoraphobics usually lead normal and happy lives in the places where they are comfortable, even entertaining guests and holding a job from the safety of their own homes. Unfortunately, the phobia can be so extreme that many times sufferers will only feel secure in extremely confined areas. A recent case revealed a woman whose anxiety was so severe that she didn't come out of her bathroom for years, causing damage to her own health as a result.

Agoraphobia often arises from other anxiety disorders and fears. For example, sufferers of social phobia often develop agoraphobia because they are nervous about having to socialize with others. It may also be caused by traumatic incidents such as having an accident far from home. Soldiers will frequently develop the phobia along with post-traumatic stress disorder. It can affect both women and men, although it is believed that agoraphobia is more common in women.

People suffering from agoraphobia might believe that they risk embarrassing themselves if they go out and experience a panic attack. It is often humiliating for a phobia sufferer to have symptoms such as trembling, sweating, or a nervous breakdown and lose their self-control.

Agoraphobia is often treated with anti-anxiety medication or counseling. It can be particularly challenging to treat because sufferers may have other anxiety disorders and underlying causes of their issues.

The reason why phobia sufferers cannot seem to handle their fears is that their feelings are based at the unconscious level. No amount of willpower or conscious effort is entirely effective to suppress a fear that stems from this level of the mind.

The techniques in Ericksonian hypnosis and Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) are effective on phobias because they work deep within the unconscious mind. Hypnosis is an ideal treatment option because it is non-invasive and safe, with no negative side effects.

There are Ericksonian hypnosis and NLP programs available on CD that are incredible because they can cure any phobia or even multiple phobias. It is not necessary to get a program that deals specifically with each different phobia. A good program will work with the thought process that triggers any phobia. This makes this sort of program ideal for many people with agoraphobia.

Additionally, a good multi-session program will provide a variety of techniques, which makes the program effective for virtually every user. With a step-by-step program, people can beat their phobias with relative ease.

The first step in the hypnosis phobia program is becoming calm and relaxed. As a form of therapy, hypnosis has long been used for stress-relief, letting even the most stressed-out people feel rested and relaxed. Once an individual feels calm and relaxed, NLP techniques eliminate a phobia by changing the single thought process that causes it.



Ericksonian hypnosis is a remarkable form of hypnotherapy that uses suggestions embedded in a conversation, story or metaphor to treat a phobia. Ericksonian hypnosis is more effective than conventional hypnosis because the unconscious mind finds it harder to resist suggestions that are not obvious, than direct suggestions. Instead of direct suggestions, which "tell" your unconscious what to do, suggestions that are found in interesting stories and metaphors will direct the unconscious into a positive, worry-free thought process.

People who are afraid to step outside the house can get their confidence and freedom by trying hypnotic techniques. A program with Ericksonian hypnosis techniques and NLP techniques is ideal for people who would like to beat their fears permanently. Hypnosis therapies offer a tremendous benefit for people with agoraphobia and other anxiety disorders.

Yes, the technique can be used to get people to do things you want them to, but it can also be used to benefit your subject. If you have a subject that wants to eat healthier, for example, you can use conversational hypnosis with them to try to help them reach their goal. If you want to know the steps for helpful conversational hypnosis, then you will want to continue reading.

The first thing you want to do when using conversational hypnosis in a helpful way is to establish affinity with your subject. You do this by listening to your subject and empathizing with them. In the beginning of the conversation you would not be offering advice, you would simply be an ear to listen.

The second thing you want to do is distract your subject. The reason for this is so that the issue the subject is dealing with leaves their mind for a moment. With the problem crowding their mind, it is sometimes hard for the solution to come in. Offer hypothetical situations to your subject, like "What would it be like if all you had to eat for the rest of your life was pizza?" These type of questions distract the mind of your subject.

Lastly, after establishing affinity and distracting your subject, you will want to make the proposition. Here is where you propose what you think could be a solution to the problem. Of course, make your proposition in non-threatening, unaggressive way.

After reading this article, you should know the steps for helpful conversational hypnosis. You know to establish affinity, distract your subject, and offer your suggestions. Follow these steps in sequential order and you will soon be on your way to helping your friends and family.

Adventures with HYPNOSIS RELAXATION

In 1949, I had a real problem with a dental phobia. Four dentists had turned me down as a patient. I had two abscessed teeth and a mouthful of other cavities. My dental phobia was so bad that it had forced me to go to a hospital some years earlier in order to have three abscessed teeth removed while I was unconscious.

Hypnose
“Behavioural” experiments under hypnosis at the Budapest clinic of the Department of Mental Health and Pathology. (a) Hypnotic suggestion of praying. (b) Hypnotic suggestion of suicide. (c) Hypnotic suggestion of swearing an oath. (d) Hypnosis produced by the tuning-fork. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)
I went to a dental convention where I found the recommended dentist who did hypnosis. He couldn’t work on my teeth, but he said he thought he could help me. So, at the lunch break, I went to his room with several other dentists, and he hypnotized me with a “standard” induction technique. Then, he taught me a psychological trick of relaxation. If I raised my left hand whenever I felt my right hand becoming a fist, indicating tension, the dentist would stop, and I would relax my right hand, and lower my left hand.) I didn’t believe it would work, but I made an appointment with the last dentist who had turned me down and had recommended hypnosis.

For the first few minutes, I kept raising my left hand, and he stopped immediately. After that, I didn’t need to raise my left hand much at all, and he worked fast.

He pulled the two bad teeth and drilled and filled a dozen more in one single hour and a half session. I had Novocain for the bad ones and didn’t need it for the others. Both the dentist and I were amazed at this, and he asked if I were really twins

To me, a 22-year-old engineering student, this was a genuine “miracle”, and I started to learn all I could about this miracle cure. I read everything I could find, from the 1700’s literature about Mesmer, Coue, etc, up to Erickson, Barber, etc.

I became an electronic engineer and pursued this as my major career, but my avocation continued to be hypnosis, and by extension, psychology. (Much of behavioral psychology is similar to hypnosis). I used it professionally, taught it in a major university to doctors, and continued to learn about it. I performed some “shows”, and considered a career as a stage hypnotist, but was more interested in using it for helping people, as it had helped me.

In 1979, I left electronic engineering and turned to psychology. I went back and obtained a Doctorate in Psychology based on my education, life experience, and my doctoral dissertation. I became a successful Behaviorist Psychologist for years in private practice in Florida. I gradually converted to an Orthomolecular practice when I found that these types of therapies worked better than any “talk therapy”, although talk therapy is sometimes used as well.




Hypnotic Relaxation

During this many year of study, and later career as a psychologist, I realized that what that original dentist who hypnotized me had actually done. With hypnosis, he had simply given me a “new” conscious tool of relaxation. Using this simple tool, I could actually change something in my unconscious called a “phobia”. It wasn’t really a miracle, though I had thought so at the time. Adding this knowledge to my knowledge of Pavlovian “conditioning responses”, I came up with what I called the Bate Relaxation Technique.

This is very simple, yet it can be very powerful – much more powerful than most realize because of its simplicity. It starts with a general hypnotic induction technique of relaxing the body muscles, starting with the toes and going up to the scalp and face. Then, in a state of muscle relaxation, ask the subject to visualize a very beautiful relaxing scene he/she is in. Describe the scene. Ask them to concentrate on how beautiful and very relaxing it is.

Then, ask the subject to memorize the feelings of relaxation and concentration they are feeling at that time. Have them put these feelings into their memory like a photograph. Then, give them a post-hypnotic suggestion that they can now recall those feeling anytime they simply count to three. End the session, and have the subject stand up, take a deep breath and simply count to three.

It’s simply amazing how the shoulders often slump 2-3 inches or some other muscles that the subject usually tenses from stress relax. I describe the “strange” feeling as sort of a “blah” feeling. (As subjects stand up from the session, their “normal” pattern of muscle stress takes effect, and the “instant” relaxation is definitely experienced.)

I then tell the subject that they now have the pattern, but it up to them to use it often, several times a day, even if not needed, for the next week or so. This will set this pattern into their unconscious as a “conditioned response”. (Remember Pavlov’s dog?) Now, they have the same tool I got from the original dentist, but it is much more enhanced and valuable. It instantly relieves the stress of any kind.

Driving a car a long distance is very stressful. My wife and I recently drove over 20 hours straight thru, with me driving about 14 of those hours. At 78 years old, that’s not “usual”. The secret – we both simply count to three every so often and are able to relax behind the wheel. Muscle tension is very tiring, and few are able to relax this muscle tension behind the wheel.

This relaxation technique is very useful in many ways in helping to solve psychological problems of phobias, compulsions, and even some serious physical problems. I was able to solve dozens of Asthma problems in all persons between 7 and 15 years old and was often successful with older persons as well. (Kids in this age range are very suggestible; some adults are too cynical.)

The system is simple but effective. First, teach the relaxation. Then, have the patient emulate a really bad asthma attack. “Come on, get really bad, your throat is closing more and more.” It’s getting worse and worse.” When the patient really starts to become in distress, say, “Now, count to three”. As he gets to three, he relaxes, and says, “Now, it’s gone, and you are in control”.

Many years ago, I did this routine on the 14-year-old son of lifelong friends. When I was visiting them a few years ago, I walked into the store of the son, and he recognized me immediately. I was surprised as it had been over 20 years since he had seen me. He said, “Do you think I could ever forget the man who cured my Asthma?”

It was another great day for my ego.

There’s nothing magical or even mysterious about it. All you are doing is teaching a new “trick” to the unconscious mind. This “trick” of instant relaxation is learned as a conditioned response by repetition and use. It becomes a tool for the conscious mind to use in all types of situations to reduce stress. As everybody knows, stress ages us diminishes the immune system and helps to kill us.

The various forms of yoga and other meditation techniques are similar, yet different. They relieve the stress of course but are of little use in immediate stressful situations. This relaxation is immediate.

This also can be used for self-hypnosis, positive statements, and visualizations.

I also used it for patients that wanted to stop smoking as a “substitute” for that instant craving that comes to an addicted smoker.

One idea makes a lot of people “afraid” of hypnosis. The idea that another person has “control” over them, and can make them do literally anything. Every experiment ever conducted has shown that this is simply not true. Hypnosis cannot force a person to do anything that is against his/her moral code. The unconscious mind is very protective and is what we are working with either with hypnosis or subliminal training.

There is some possibility of “indirect” misuse of hypnosis. I once witnessed a hypnotist demonstrating this. He had a very attractive woman who was very hypnotizable (instantly into somnambulism by snapping his fingers). He hypnotized her and told her to take off her clothes. She awoke instantly and was embarrassed, but had no conscious memory of why.

He then hypnotized her again, and this time, told her that she was at home in her bathroom with the door closed, and she was going to take a bath. She calmly started to take off her clothes. He stopped her before she got too far, but she was obviously going to completely strip.

It was interesting how he stopped her. He told her that someone had come into her home, and was near the bathroom door. She said, “Don’t come in. I’m not dressed”.

He then had her get dressed and woke her. She had no memory of the incident.

When I was a young man, I had a girlfriend who I had sex with once or twice. And she had been hypnotized several times as well. One night I wanted sex, but she didn’t. I used the cue that hypnotized her but to no avail. She refused, even hypnotized. So, the idea that someone can make you do something you do not want to do is false. I can testify to that personally. Our unconscious mind is very protective of us in all ways, even though some ways may be wrong.

Of course, if you work with either hypnosis or subliminal training, or virtually any type of serious psychology you have to be aware of the unconscious mind, as that entity is always what you are trying to influence.

Hypnotic Age Regression

This is a very useful tool for a psychologist, or, for that matter, any doctor of any stripe. Under even “light” hypnosis, it can be used to “pull” details from the life of the patient that he/she has forgotten consciously. (The unconscious memory has everything in it.)

There are several “tricks of the trade” involved. After my Relaxation Technique, I used a “deepening” technique that went something like this, “Now, I want you to imagine and visualize yourself going down an escalator as I count to ten. One, imagine yourself stepping on and feeling the steps from under your feet. Two, as you move down, relax even more. Three, as you go down further, concentrate more and more. Four, and as you relax more, you can concentrate more. Five, this positive circle of concentration and relaxation continues as you move down.”

Continue with similar repetitions thru nine, and then, “Ten, step off the escalator into a room. This room is yours alone. It is only in your mind, and no one else can ever get into it. You can make it anything you want. In this room, you can do anything or visualize anything that will help you to be a better person. In this room, you can remember anything you want.”

Next, I would start the questioning. For example, a man came to me to try to find a lost valuable diamond engagement ring. He and his fiancĂ© had broken up, and she had returned the ring to him. He remembered taking the ring, but when he got home, he couldn’t find it at all. I did the above technique and then started.

I said. “I want to you to go back in time to the moment when she handed you the ring. Where were you and she at that time?”

He replied, “We were in her living room.”

“Alright, see yourself taking the ring. What did you do with it?”

He said, “I’m putting it into my small watch pocket of my jeans.”

“OK, now you are leaving her. What happened next?”

“I’m getting into my car, and driving home”

“Good, what happens next?”

“I’m going into my bedroom, and changing clothes.”

“Why?”

“I have to go to a baseball presentation dinner.”

“OK, what did you do with your jeans?”

“Oh NO! I had put them in the washer!”

That was the story. He went home and found the ring stuck in the washer. (The usual story of such is that it gets caught in the “U” drain under a sink.) This illustrates the value of “age regression” as a memory aid.

Of course, it’s also useful to uncover the beginnings of phobias and compulsions. A woman came to me with a cat phobia and asthma. I did the usual as above, and with a couple of other useful techniques found the problem. One “trick” is to say, “OK, now you are going back in time. It is your 15th birthday. You are awake in that morning. Do you have asthma?”

She replied, “yes.” (She had earlier said on intake questioning that her asthma had started very early. I start well past that so as to get the patient used to go back.)

“Ok, now you are ten years old, just waking up on your birthday. Do you have asthma now?” Same answer.

“OK, you are now five years old, on your birthday. Do you have asthma now?” Same answer

I worked back thru 4 and 3 and 2, 1, and started back in months. I got to the ninth month, and she didn’t have asthma. Still, she had no memory of anything that was related. So, I went to her tenth month, and went backward, day to day with the same question. I got to the day when she did have asthma. Now I asked her, “What happened to you during the last day that caused you to have asthma? I am going to count to three, and when I get to three, you will remember everything. One, you’re starting to remember. Two, memory is coming back. Three, you now remember everything.”



She then related, “I was lying on my back in a crib, and the cat jumped into the crib and lay across my mouth. I couldn’t breathe, or call out, and I was scared. I don’t know what happened, but I think I hit the cat, and she went on me.”

It was two birds with one stone. Cat phobia, and asthma caused at that point. Asthma is often a “protective” device used to keep oxygen in the body. Most can easily breathe in but have real problems breathing out. This was her case.

Then, we get to the really interesting part. Age regression to past lives. As an agnostic, I don’t really know if the many stories I have heard from many persons are true, or something from the universal mind or what?

Probably the single most impressive story is the man who came to me with two lifelong phobias that he had had since earliest memory. He was deathly afraid of fire and water. He thought that these phobias might be from past lives, and asked me to try to find out.

He was easily hypnotizable, and with little urging went back thru birth to the previous life. He had been a circus clown and been burned to death in a circus fire. It was then simple to go back to a previous life to that. It seems that he had stolen a horse, and was caught. The vigilantes didn’t have a tree, so they hanged him from a bridge. The rope broke, and he drowned. Of course, it took much more time to go thru, and some suggestions from me. He was cured according to a phone call a week later.

I’ve had several such interesting cases. Another was fascinating to me. Under hypnosis, a man kept saying, “All I can see is a bird”. I kept after him about this bird for 10 or more minutes, but he couldn’t see much more than this bird. Finally, he said, “It’s a black bird, and it’s on my shield”.

I pressed him harder about his shield and did he have a sword and a horse. He suddenly screamed, “There’s blood all around me, and all over me and my horse. I’m killing people all around with my sword, and they’re trying to kill me! ”

I questioned him closely, and it became evident that the date was 1066 at the battle of Hastings as the Normans conquered England.

Is the story true? I cannot say with any certainty, but it was impressive.

When I gave seminars and talks on hypnosis, I usually finished with doing my Relaxation Technique, and my deepening. Then, I would say, “In your room, sitting comfortably, I want you to let your mind go out of your body. Let it go out into space, and as you see earth behind you as that familiar blue and white marble, see space as almost velvety, with stars and planets being very clear and steady. It’s really beautiful out here in space. Now, you are coming to a white cloud that is getting bigger and bigger, and you are now entering it. On the other side, there is another blue marble world. As you approach, it looks like Earth, but as you get really close, you see no huge cities, but beautiful parks and lovely buildings that seem to be a part of the landscape. As you come to it, and walk about, you notice that the people are all friendly, and the animals are all friendly, and the gardens and parks all around are simply the loveliest you have ever seen. You are filled with the same sort of happiness that it seems everybody there has. You are at peace with yourself and that place.”

“Now, it’s time to leave, and we are going back into space again. Ahead of us is that same white cloud, and this time, as we enter it, we make a left turn, and we are now going back in time. The year is 1700 on Earth, and as we come back to Earth in that time, we are going to each go into a body in that time and place. I want you to look at your feet, and your clothes, and your surroundings, and have a sense of who you are in that body. Now, it’s time to return. We are leaving this time and place, and going back thru that white cloud, and back to that blue marble of earth, and back to that comfortable seat, and into your own body again. As I count to three backward, you are going to awaken, not drowsy or sleepy or affected by my voice at all, and you will remember everything you experienced.”

Then, I count, “Three, two, one, awake fully awake. Now, how many persons really experienced that beautiful planet?”

About a third or more really did visualize it clearly. (A few were somewhat angry with me for not leaving them longer!) Then I asked, “Now, how many persons experienced themselves in 1700?” Surprisingly, about one-third had very good and clear visualizations. One woman was indignant “I had bare feet and scratched legs, and I was a serving woman”. She had a very high opinion of herself in this life obviously. Needless to say, these stories were very interesting and varied. One woman impressed me with, “I was in a dark place waiting to be born.”

Of course, such stories do not prove anything. They could be products of imagination, or simply scraps of something from the unconscious or universal mind. However, or whatever they are, taken in bulk from honest persons with no known vested interest, they do prove something beyond our conscious knowledge.

An “Impossible” Story

Here’s a true story that is unbelievable to many people. In reading about hypnosis, I came across an article where a professional hypnotist had claimed that he had been able to increase a woman’s breast size using hypnosis. I dismissed that claim until in 1978; I read an article by Dr. Ted X. Barber in the Journal of Clinical Hypnosis about hypnotic phenomena. This article discussed many different hypnotic phenomena, including several experiments at several different colleges that had all done a similar experiment. As I recall (at this much later date), each college used 8-12 women, all of whom were somewhat flat chested, and all wanted larger breasts.

All were carefully measured, above and below the actual breasts, and across them at the nipples. Once a week for 12 weeks, they were hypnotized as a group and told to visualize things like, “See yourself in a mirror naked with larger breasts. Admire your larger breasts. See how good they look, and how good you feel with them. Now, see yourself dressed in a very becoming dress, and how well it looks on you with your new breasts. It increases your self-confidence as well. “

These comments were repeated several times. As I recall, the average for all of the various experiments was that 80% actually increased their breast size, and the average increase was 2.1 inches.

Let’s take another deeper look at this. The average success rate for losing weight by hypnosis is considered to be less than 65%. In other less reported breast size experiments, DECREASING breast size in women with overly large breasts, the success rate was negligible.

In addition, this suggestion is specific – add body cells to a certain part of the body only! We have no knowledge if actual mammary cells were added, or only fat cells, but still!!!

I’ve won two bets from other psychologists that this story was published in a reputable scientific journal. I made a hypnosis tape specifically for “breast enlargement”, and heard for a few of the women who purchased it that it did indeed work for them. Unfortunately, few people report either success or failure.

Why doesn’t hypnosis work better on the “lesser task” of losing weight, or losing breast weight? The explanation is difficult, but in my experience, the social “advantage” to women of large breasts inhibits the unconscious from losing this “advantage”. Some women are “punishing” their selves (or their husbands) by being fat. (Sort of “love me for me, not for my body”). Motives of the unconscious mind are often murky and difficult for our conscious minds to understand. The computer analogy of “garbage in – garbage out” applies here.




Harmful Unconscious Ideas

The unconscious mind can be a force for good or bad. It apparently doesn’t discriminate – again like a computer. If a virus gets in, it can distort many other programs in different ways.

Let’s examine a very illustrative case. A woman brought in her 8-year-old boy for hypnosis for bedwetting. I did the usual direct suggestion and told her to keep him off all milk products for at least a week.

Two days later, she and her son were back. No success. This time, I did age regression hypnosis. He went back (with a little urging) to when he was 4. He was in bed almost asleep when he heard someone trying to get in his window. He was so scared that he wet himself, and cried out. The burglar (real or imagined) left. The unconscious “logic” to this boy – urination protects from intruders in the night. It wasn’t difficult to remove this logic (computer virus), and his mother said that he hadn’t wet again a few months later.

The great master of hypnotic therapy, Milton Erickson, once had an almost comic situation that he solved in a unique way. It seems that a recently married couple came to him because each was a bed wetter. On their honeymoon, the bed was wet each morning, and each thought the other was very thoughtful in not mentioning it. After a few days, they each confessed and came to Erickson.

He made them agree to do exactly what he said and then told them to kneel on the bed when they were ready for sleep and each had to urinate, and then sleep in it. They came back several days later, and they had kept their word. He then told them, “Since you did as I told you, tonight you can go to bed normally without the urination, and come back tomorrow”. The next day, they said the bed was dry in the morning, so he “allowed” them another dry night. Then another, and then he declared them “cured”.

These two stories illustrate the immense power of the unconscious for both good and bad. One of the major jobs of the unconscious mind is to “protect” the physical body (home of the unconscious mind) from harm. If a threat is perceived whether real or imaginary, it goes into action, even if the action may be harmful to itself.
