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.

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.

        Happiness is the result of an enlightened mind whereas suffering is caused by a distorted mind.
