Question YouTube Hypnosis

Has anyone tried the YouTube hypnosis videos? They claim to do so much. Induce a OBE, make you lucid dream, even downright silly things like forget your name, etc. Has anyone tried them with any success? Are they safe to try?

Yes. I tried some, successfully. It's pretty easy to recognize the serious ones. You can search through the spiritualforums for references too.

Why would anybody use hypnosis for silly things like forgetting your name?

In my experience self hypnosis is safe, and I recommend it.

At the risk of sounding like I'm just being frivolous about this, and being sent to the corner of this sub-forum for time-out:

From sheer curiosity and fascination with how our minds work. It's a party trick, sure, and not of any actual use, but I find it fascinating to experience hypnotic phenomena and learn from that. How do our minds do that? How does suggestion in trance work, how can listening to hypnosis tapes in trance go in and re-program your mind to make things better? What do these phenomena tell us about how our minds tick? What does a simple trick like this tell me about how amnesia works, how hypnotherapy works? About how memory works? Intense curiosity.

And for fun, quite frankly. For sure, my daily self-hypnosis is about meaning and spiritual purpose. But it doesn't all have to be serious. It's a really good laugh, to know full well that it's a trick, yet your name is on the tip of your tongue, but just not *quite* there. It was hilarious to forget that the number 4 existed and count 6 fingers on my hand. Because the universe is playful, too, because synchronicity sometimes has such a lovely sense of humour and because laughter over silly things is good for the soul.

Don't burn me at the stake now, please.

I can't... I'm a trained stage hypnotist :-)

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.

I think this is good advice and although stage hypnosis has more jocularity associated to it, the process of hypnosis is the same; it is all about bypassing the critical mind. Learning about all forms of practice will help anyone who wants to understand it. As LPC says, if there is a good relationship between the hypnotist and client, the process can work better. This is also true in stage hypnotism but there are specific tools that we use to create that rapport quicker. It's quicker for performance reasons but those same techniques are not appropriate for hypnotherapy due to the intimate nature of some of the issues that are being resolved.

Depending on where you are, and if you're really interested, you may want to take an introductory class with someone. I learned from Marc Savard in Vegas and you learn a great deal of clinical information in just the first class.

Yes, I have astral projected with binaural beats on youtube and used hypnosis as well however be careful! Recently there has been a bunch of these channels deleted from youtube because they were found to contain super creepy subliminal messages (look it up if you don't believe.) I would say most tracks on youtube are okay but just keep in mind that any sicko can make a video and post it online for free.

Hi Ambergris

Would you mind sharing which ones you used? I have found a number of James Ramey sessions on YouTube, including one for astral projection, but have not been successful with it.
