I've been thinking about this a lot lately...the fact that I've never been able to be hypnotized. And I'm suggesting that a lot of people here at
ATS are the same way.
I've been to hypnotists several times, including stage performances of hypnotists in public, and also private hypnotists for various things including
smoking cessation. Try as they might, no one could ever put me under.
In college, during a stage performance of a hypnotist, I was chosen from the audience to get up on stage with ten others. Everyone else was put
under, except for me. They asked me to leave the stage! This hypnotist was in "show business" after all, and it was his job to weed out the people
who wouldn't go under and fail to "perform." At another hypnotist show years later, the same thing happened.
Hypnotists will tell you that anyone can be hypnotized, but that some people are just harder to put under than others. I guess I would definitely
fall into that category. Of the four or five times I've been around a hypnotist, I was never, ever put under. And I know several different methods
So, what's my point?
Perhaps a lot of the folks at ATS are harder to "brainwash" too. We are of strong minds, willing to leap from the norm and straddle topics that
others are in disbelief about. Obviously, the "brainwashing" techniques of TPTB haven't worked on us, because, in fact, here we all are, and
we're all pretty clear about what's really going on in the world.
I find this interesting.
Has anyone had this experience? Difficulty with hypnosis?
I believe there is a connection.
The strong willed shall inherit the truth!
