Hi,

I have learned self-hypnosis through some experimentation and have only been able to do it about three or four times.

I think Mayacara gives one of the best descriptions I've ever seen.

What is interesting is it seemed to take me out of my current psychological milieu. It seems to 'reset' one's mood. It had some really great effects, removing some mild inhibitions, changing my outlook for a day or so. To use pop-psychology it stopped me 'playing some of my tapes'.

I've been meaning to do it more, and thought about going to a hypnotist to get some additional instruction.

Seems to me that this 'state' is what Actors do, enabling them to have a character take over their personality. Method acting. This is why they talk about 'staying in character'.

The key thing is 'being in the hypnogogic state' for a period. Having your mind in that state seems to be restorative, or was for me. I once spent about 4-6 hours in this state and it was really great. Be sure you are in a safe environment and that you'll have no distractions.

Good thread.
Voted Mayacara 'way above' because of this.

Badge01 - thank you for the vote, its very much appreciated.

If you're interested in taking hypnosis further, I would look at Dr Bruce Goldbergs site. I saw him on TV a little while ago and was very impressed with his ability and also he is the first person I have seen who is trying to take people forward in time as well as regress them.

He has a couple of simple exercises on his site which I tried.www.drbrucegoldberg.com...

I was very sceptical that just reading a script on my pc would put me into a trance, but I followed the Sanctuary Exercise and found myself going deeper and deeper. I didn't fully come out of the trance when I had finished so scrolled down to the Psychic Protection From Negativity exercise which was absolutely amazing. I came out of the trance and was astounded at the results. I could truly feel a white glow in my chest and a surge of confidence and happiness. I went off to work feeling like I was floating on air, and the white glow stayed with me all day.

It would be interesting to hear if any of you not used to hypnosis experience the same effects.

Cara

Bump of an old thread, but today i went to see a hypnotherapist for the first time, she is a well accredited hypnotherapist, and my experience was one of not expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised about how i felt after.

I didnt go "under" yet felt i could almost fall asleep, she used a strange technique of counting backwards using the alphabet, starting from the letter z, going down to a, creating meaningful words out of each letter.

After using various techniques i felt myself flickering between my conscious mind to images, feelings, probably from my sub conscious side.

She told me to picture myself looking down a hotel corridor, with various doors, and said to slowly face a door that felt right, and push it open, strangely i saw a baby, not sure of age but under a year i guess, playing with a colorful abacus, it was the first image that came to mind, i didnt realize the baby was me.

Working with how i felt at the time, or rather how the baby felt, was all part of realizing whatever was tangled up inside me.

And slowly moving onto the next door, an older me.

She said to dispel whatever was negative that was still holding on, and instill positive mind sets, replacing the negative words with positive ones.

So thats only a little bit of what was a 2 hour session, when i actually had to come round and wake up fully, i felt strange, light headed, almost like i was gonna faint??! and feeling like i had just slept and had awoken feeling refreshed, is that a common sideeffect?

I cant say im cured, but i do feel good, and she said the things that we instilled will only grow and get stronger inside me, so im open to it and have booked another session, she reckons it can take up to 4 sessions to fully work through everything, so im willing to give it a try.

Has anyone else had some real positive effects from this type of hypnotherapy?

I have seen people get hypnotized twice, they were both school related functions. And they were very close friends that got chosen to be hypnotized. They thought it was real. I was in the audience and I wanted to be but I felt I had too much "knowledge" of the subject, like how he does it and plus I don't think I'd be able to relax enough to be hypnotized.
My brother was hypnotized once because he was gaining weight too rapidly and eating far to much. So my mom took him to a hypnotist and it did work, he started to eat healthy and it kept that way for at least two to three months. Not to say the hypnotist made it this way I think his effect just wore off.
All a hypnotist does is say exactly the right words at exactly the right times. He'll begin by just talking getting you relaxed and into the conversation and then (at least this is what both of the hypnotists did that I saw) he'll begin to count down and say things like "and on the count of four you will get deeper and deeper" That deeper word is really the key because I was in the audience trying to get hypnotized and I was almost asleep but my mind was too aware of the people around me. Your voice has to be in a way that is EXTREMELY convincing. If you don't have that and your unsure about how to make it that then there really is no point. I don't think there's a good enough explanation I could find/give you as to what this sounds like because I could only replicate it since I heard it. Its a way of talking that I never heard before.
Hypnotism is real it is even recognized by medicine to be an effective way to put people under. Go ask any surgeon, or when you go get surgery, if you can be hypnotized as another option from anesthesia, they should respond most definitely yes.

Funny you should say that, i forgot to mention in my earlier post, her voice was weird, sometimes not actually saying certain words clearly, almost like your mind just about figures what she is saying, only a few words here and there were said like that, other than that a deep almost monotone sound/voice, was interesting, and im going to do more.

Obviously i realize this is a form of meditation, only that she is more of a guide, i have never tried meditation, but my mind did seem to respond really well to it.

I was more skeptical about this sort of thing before, but i have certainly changed my perspective on it.

Hypnosis is real. However not everyone can be hypnotized. There exist some "test" we can do to check if an individual is succeptible to hypnotic suggestion. Also there exist some "test" to see if an individual is really under hypnosis or simply faking.

Also, it is universally accepted fact that someone under hypnosis won't accomplish "things" he would not be prepared to do under "awakened" state.

FYI, for those affraid of not being able to awaken someone under hypnosis, a good old trick is to strongly blow some air in their eye.

If you want to experiment with hypnosis, the first step is to master the art of fascination, It is widely used in TV commercial...

Ihave done it using the pendulum method just so the person could experience it.
It just takes focus and concentration first they laugh then the go into a trance.

Not aware of this method, can you give precision?

The way I practiced it was using the good old method, fascination, specific voice intonation and specific and very authoritative suggestion, and holding both fingers. I also experimented with shiny beacon just above the eye. It was 25 years ago, so memory no longer serve well.

I was really interested in this when I was younger.. Successfully hypnotized a few people.. Honestly, it scared me and I stopped.

I have never been hypnotized myself. I am curious if its even possible with some people, or are just certain types more suggestible?..

Interesting, but sound like a bunch of buzz words to me.

The way I originally understood it was to intensely visualize the suggestion you want to transmit, then as a result, your nonverbal body language and your intonation will propagate to the subject and produce the desired effect. It is like a comedian that mentally think of situations producing desired emotion, then his play will reflect that precise emotion.

Many peoples are simply impossible to hypnotize, others are difficult subjects, then others are very easy. It all bowl down to how suggestible they are. AFAIK there is a strong link with hysteria.



Honestly, it scared me and I stopped.


There is no danger there if your using conventional methods. As I said before, blowing in the eyes will awake them everytime. However, the chemical methods are another story...

I did not know about the blowing eyes technique.. My method involved using a predetermined suggestion although a few times people spontaneously dropped out of the trance state.

The amount of suggestibility that the subjects exhibited.. I don't know.. it just didn't sit right with me.

Hypnosis is only a mythological cover-up to what the government does with neurological weapons. That is nano-technologies and other subversive techniques aimed at distorting brain perception of reality and controlling a person through neurological inputs.
