Belief is a form of trance
 
Any Human that is capable of focused attention, has experience a level of trance. If you have ever been lost in thought (Daydreamed) ,you have experienced a level of trance. To my knowledge , no rational mind can not be hypnotised. The level to which the trance can be brought to is the determining factor as to how effective / sustainable the suggestions will be retained. When done properly it can be a valuable tool. Sadly it is often used as a form of control for entertainment or to validate the need to be a controller, rather than a path to balanced understanding. Responcibility of caring/careful guidance the hypnotist provides, should be no less than that shown to a trusting child or blind person in a sighted world. Blessings

The success of any session is based on simple factors which begin with comfort,and trust and belief in directions given. Many times sessions are not base on a detailed interview prior to the induction itself, can reduce the depth of the trance necessary to achieve the intended goal of the session. Past Life Regressions can be very informative and therapeutic when done properly. Sadly some are conducted in a way that directs the awareness of the client to a place that may not be most effect. Example: What kind of shoes are you wearing on your feet?you are being directed that you should be aware of shoes. Better way: when you look down what do you see? If you reply feet, then the next question may are the covered? etc. Enjoy the experience.... Blessings

Funny story I like to tell about self-hypnosis. I feel it really worked for me! When I was in High School, I was lucky enough to take a seminar led by the parent of one of the students, who was on the board at the Carl Jung Foundation in NYC . He taught us all sorts of cool things, like synchronicity, about the I Ching, and yes, how to hypnotize ourselves.

I put the latter to good use during college when I was taking economics, which was a real stretch for me 'cause I'm more of a artsy creative type, but I was also very curious. Well, I worked really hard. Come time for the Final Exam tho, I totally blanked out on a certain graph. I KNEW I had studied it, but what was on it? I felt safe enough to put myself into a trance (who was going to talk to me in the middle of a huge lecture hall? You coulda heard a pin drop), I went back in time, looked at the graph again, saw all the detail, brought myself out of the trance, answered the question, and got an A in the course. That meant a lot to me, too, because it was the only A I got that term :D

A few other times I've experimented with going back in time (one time I re-listened to the incredible mundane conversation at the table behind me, so not worth the trip :D ) but have yet to harness it to any great end such as weight loss etc.

That really would come in handy, kaceycat! Anyone else have a plr? Especially by a TNI therapist? (michael newton institute trained therapist)How did it go?
I have a plr scheduled in a couple weeks and am excited. :-)

You better believe it.

When I was learning hypnosis, the instructor asked for a volunteer. Nobody raised their hand but me. The teacher late told me he did not want to use me because preliminary 'tests' indicated I was not a very good candidate.

He told me to stand between two tables and immediately I felt invisible bounds wrapped around my body. The teacher pushed me forward and two other students caught me. The teacher instructed them to put my feet on one table and my shoulders on the other table. I was faced up. My body did not bend - I was rigid.

After the experiment, I felt really good. I never told the instructor that I had been in an accident and had two fractures that had healed but not correctly.

Yes, hypnosis does work!

I suspect each of us spend most, if not all of our the time in various hypnotic states.

The 'problem' is we just do not acknowledge it.

But then............... how many of us have questioned or checked to
see if we are in a hypnotic state(s)?

Hypnosis relaxes your state of being and you willingly participate from that relaxed state.
Some people relax more than others.

BigJohn 30-08-2019 03:25 AM

I generally use hypnosis to maintain a certain physical level
when doing physical work.

I also used hypnosis when I used to run a lot.

cdavid78 12-10-2019 09:51 PM

The Hypnotist has to get you into a really relaxed state It is possible,but it has never worked on me.Probably because I,m frightened I Might blurt out something stupid and I cant let myself relax.:biggrin:

It worked for my mother, she uncovered repressed memories.

I don't have personal experience, I worry I may be the kind of person who just can't get hypnotized.

It is a myth that there are people that can't be hypnotized.

I kinda figured, I guess it just means when I saw a hypnotism show and some of them had to get off the stage it was just 'cause the hypnotist wasn't very good.

Many moons ago myself and my friend went to a hypnotist for past life regression, he tried to hypnotise me I just started Laughing,
it didn't work for me but my friend who was sitting to the side of me. started saying things .she had been hypnotised instead.
it came out that she was a child born to farmers and they had 10 kids,her name was Alice and she was the fourth child.
in this life she is an only child. he told me my guides wouldn't let him come near me

Years ago.. at school sports day, I got talking to another mum who had booked a session to stop smoking. I told her "" ooohhh that sounds interesting""".... As I myself thought I should really stop smoking . At this she showed interest and said "" well I've booked... But if I bring a second person we both get it a lot cheaper"""....so before I knew it, I had agreed to go with her...... We went..... And all the time, I'm thinking ""well I can still hear everything , the birds outside the window , the guys voice" ... Etc .... I didn't think it was working. When he told us to open our eyes , it did feel like my eyes were heavy ......but it hadnt worked for either of us.... The first thing she did when we got outside was light a cig, and she never stopped !!!! In the other hand, I DID stop... Why??.... Because after paying the sum of 80 .... I could not afford to carry on smoking... Went through hell and cold turkey to stop on my own, having to ring a helpline every two days in order to stay off them..... I stopped for 2 years but then started again when I was going through a divorce...

One session will very rarely do it. Generally, numerous sessions are needed.

I don't believe in hypnosis, until I experience it myself. In hypnosis TV shows people are just acting to not embarass a show host.

I would like to try it, however, if there would be some hypnotist willing to try me. Maybe hypnosis could cure my chronic fatigue? "Look at this pendulum...you feel energetic and fresh...you fall to sleep easily and you get refreshing sleep..." :rolleyes:

Can you imagine being an athlete in a race and then using hypnosis while you are running so you will run faster?

This scenario is played out in many races.

I had tried hypnotherapy for a physical recovery (stroke). However, I felt I did not benefit from it even though I was assured that I would benefit from it. I'm not saying it doesn't work, just that it didn't for me. I found that through positive affirmations that I got the most positive outcome.

I went to an introductory to hypnosis once.
The instructor asked for a volunteer. Nobody raised their hand but me. He kept asking the question while at the same time pretending he could not see my raised hand. Later he would tell me, of those in the room, I was the least susceptible to hypnosis. Great.

He had me come over and stand in an aisle. He had some students stand behind me. Instantly I could feel my body being invisibly bound and I leaned backwards and was 'caught' by the people behind me. Next my feet were picked up and my feet were put on one table any my head and shoulders were put on another table. I was belly up with nothing supporting my back. My back should have bent but it didn't. I remained rigid. I was amazed because I had 2 fractures in my back and I felt nothing in pain. Shortly afterwards, the show was over, and I was hooked on hypnosis.

Nice story, BigJohn.
I too got hooked on hypnosis. It has benefited many areas of my life.
Though I practice mostly self hypnosis, I do much prefer a skilled practitioner.
I see it as a meditation practice, which many traditionalist would probably disagree.
I think hypnosis has a bad rap, since people see it as loosing control.
Though I would say one is much more aware and open, rather than controlled.:smile:

BigJohn 23-05-2021 10:19 PM

My instructor, helped several people to become Mediums. One of his students has received international fame.

I am like you..... I like self hypnosis.

Hypnosis has a 'bad' rap. If people could see how much of their life involves hypnosis, they probably would look at it differently.
