I remember in college there was an opportunity to undergo hypnosis where I was at. I volunteered in one group. They told us that we would be completely aware of everything, nothing like they could make someone bark or do all kinds of crazy things. Anway we went into a trance and they told us to remember being a small kid in a classroom. Then they asked us what we saw. Up on the chalkboard I said I saw cursive letters, a capital letter and a small letter for the entire alphabet. Hypnosis was enhancing my memory a great deal. Anyway they took us out of it and the guy doing it picked some people who were more easily hypnotized. I was not in that group. I believe they took that group much deeper into memories. I don't remember anything more right now.
I have a fuzzy memory of one very attractive female trying to hypnotize me one time by swinging a watch or something back and forth in front of her. After several minutes, she smiled but looked frustated at the same time and said I was staring at the wrong thing. Having a very attractive female attempt to hypnotize you can be more difficult.
Ballwin, MO (KSDK) - A woman is suing a St. Louis therapist, claiming he hypnotized her into falsely believing she had been a part of a satanic cult. The woman's lawyer says there are more alleged victims out there.
It is a shame. I agree.

It is of course possible the therapist did try to manipulate her not unheard of if it is the case i hope he is struck of the register but this culture of claimers has to be stopped in England we take the view if no monetary damage was caused no monetary damages should be awarded to the claiment so no er...."quick buck" can be made.
As for resurecting lost memories ...
My appologies for not making things clear in the OP.. I realize it now to be a bit confusing, so please forgive . I will try to keep this short precise and to point.. My deceased father-in-law told me about hiding his money somewhere on his property. Not precisely, but there definitely were clues.
You can try yourself to relax and think of this person or rather think of what you know of this person when you saw them last or what ever thoughts you have of them with out thinking of their name as that will blank you as you have tried that to often by the sounds of it and you will now only think "you cant rember their name" automaticly, instead think of other things about them but try to avoid thinking of their name and it may come to you via another link, but completely relax first, it may take a few atempts but often works, if you have trouble relaxing let me know i can help you with that.
To simplify what is happening think of your brain as a road map and your usual route has a blocked road all you have to do is find another way around (thinking of them by association with somthing else).

I'm amazed you've never come across anyone that couldn't be hypnotized. Hmmm maybe these that say they haven't been actually were but just were unaware - like the man in Jesse's Vid.
I understand about the" leading" and that one must feel comfortable , etc. It's been a while but I need to get back into studying this subject more ''deeply''. . Why do I tend to lay aside things like this when they are so fascinating?!.
Thanks for sticking with the thread XXX . I know I can learn much from you!
Am sure you could tell us more of your experiences? The cig guy was a hoot sounds like? Did he realize after the fact that he HAD gone to sleep? Have a witness there to convince him?edit on 21-12-2011 by SeekerLou because: (no reason given)
Very interesting. Lol at your forgetting to tell them to remember which of course makes me wonder just how many people that are walking around right now that have been hypnotized and are not even unaware!

Ive come across people who take quite a while to hypnotise, the most difficult has been about 30 minutes, it was also quite a distracting environment, but that was fixed by playing some soothing background music, turning them away from the others watching and changing the induction around. Most people come out of hypnosis without any recollection of it but they remember after a few hours or the next day, ive had one person who has not remembered it which was my fault as I forgot to mention to them that they would remember it but one of their friends recorded it.
Great! haha Sounds like fun
The guy with the cigarette was standing outside a house party at Halloween with a few other people so it was seen, I then had him back in the house doing some funny things.
I do have to say to you, if you want to try hypnosis just try it, the only things that you need to know are that to complete an induction and put them deeper you need to tell them that you will count from 10 - 1 and with each sound of your voice and number that you count they will go deeper and deeper. On 1, you say "sleep" once again.
When bringing someone back out of hypnosis you simply say to them, im going to count from 1 - 10 and with each word I say and each number I count you will feel more refreshed, energised and fantastic. You can also say, you will remember everything that has happened too. As you count for example, say"1, 2 feeling more refreshed, 3, 4 more energised". Likewise with the count down only with the correct words.
Any hypnotic suggestion that you give must be simple and not overly complicated an example would be...
"When I count to 5 (can be 3 if you wish) you will have completely forgotten the number 7, the more you try to remember the number 7, the more you will forget the number 7, do you understand?" They will nod their head. "1,2,3,4,5 and wake". Then you ask them to count their fingers etc.
Also just make sure that you are not hypnotising anyone with any mental condition whatsover or family history of it, reason being, it can trigger an existing condition that a person might not know they have, and never hypnotise anyone that is not over 18 years old. Also with scenarios when someone is hypnotised, never do age regression, it is dangerous when it comes to child memories suddenly surfacing (particularly if someone has been abused etc).
I also stay away from memories and stick to fiction because if a name of someone somehow comes up to the person and a sad memory is attached to them, lets say for example, you tell someone to imagine they have an invisible dog lead, do not tell them it is their dog as that dog might be deceased and can cause them to get upset.
Hey, best of luck to you. From the sounds of it - I'm sure you'll be great! Hope you have a gr8 turn out and I'd DEFinitely be interesting in seeing some of your recordings!
I am doing my first "official" show next year and ill probably upload some of it onto here for a laugh as it is getting recorded.

Maybe I had expectations and was trying to force it along and that blocked it from really working.edit on 20-12-2011 by thisguyrighthere because: (no reason given)
