Impromptu Hypnosis… Improving your ‘Hit Rate’!

If you like this, please ‘like’ and share!

This video has been created in response to a question via the HWT Developing Group:

“I’m a relative beginner (less than one year of formal training), and I originally wanted to learn hypnosis for entertainment purposes. I have had good success with one on one therapeutic sessions, but so far I have not had much success with impromptu phenomena.

I’ve commonly heard that “10%” (or whatever) of subjects will be somnambulists, capable of catalepsy, amnesia, hallucination, etc. What is the HWT take on this? Do you get phenomena from most subjects? Do you go along the Arons scale, see how far you can get and then stop, or what?”

Most people teach hypnosis from the perspective of scripts or techniques, but the truth is that real constant success with hypnosis is not founded in either, it is founded in a combination of understanding, skill, repertoire and state (the trance of the hypnotist).

In this video I talk about this idea, along with a whole host of other ‘pro-tips’ for increasing success in eliciting hypnotic phenomena.

    Not on facebook…
    I’m running into a conundrum.
    1 this stuff works…at least it did at first with my wife
    2 she does not relate to me as the hypnotist and need to find another frame with her
    3 she is now self concience…therfore, thinks I’m always trying to “hypnotize” her.  In her mind, she now thinks I’m always trying to hypnotize her.

    Truth is, I started researching hypnosis for myself. I’m trying to eliminate my short fuse by adapting softer mannerisms and tone.  I think she hears this calmer voice/tone and associates it with my mannerisms and tone.  I think she hears this calmer voice/tone and mis-associates it.  I’d be interested to hear a podcast on this topic
