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.

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.
