I am also self taught, and have used self hypnosis for years. I've always been more interested in hypnotherapy than in stage hypnosis, but I enjoy watching the shows anyway. You seem to be very good at it, and a good showman.
Do you look for somnambulists among the audience?
How many did you go through to find the few you had on stage?
Almost forgot. Are you still using hypnosis for pain control?edit on 11/1/2012 by Klassified because: (no reason given)
i mean its one thing doing it on a girlfriend...who may be very suggestible anyhow..and a completely different thing attempting this on people you don't know....or a group of strangers.
also Id like to know your opinion on hypnotising people into doing something they normally would never do...as in a Manchurian candidate.
its my belief that this is not just possible but just as easy as another hypnotic suggestion...yet the mainstream all say that this is impossible.
I know its a bit off topic...but I believe everyone is in a hypnotic state all the time...its tied to our sense of being "individuals" and this trance state is reinforced continually by the modern world, by materialism and consumerism.
