Luna, I am a trained but non-practising hypnotist of the "serious" (not stage) kind. I suggest that you Google "critical factor
" and read some of the webpages which explain about it.
I don't have the time right now to explain it all to you, but basically the hypnotist will seek to relax (or in more dramatic cases surprise or shock) a client into a state of trance, where the sub-conscious is accessible to suggestion. The normal conscious mind is much more resistant and stubborn. But the sub-conscious is open and trusting, especially if the hypnotist and client have a good relationship.
I don't practise, but I do occasionally help family and neighbours if they ask for help. For me, hypnosis is a blessing, but one to be treated as a tool to help others, not a game.
Because the subconscious is easily influenced, suggestions must be properly put and positive in nature. Hence please exercise caution when using YouTube videos. Check reviews, check the hypnotist who put the video there, check the words on the video fully conscious before "trusting" it.
I would imagine that 95% or so of such videos would be great and helpful. But there are some weird people about, so don't throw caution to the wind.
I hope that this reply helps you.
