Hi everybody.

I am into magic for about 15 years now. I got into mentalism several years ago and I really enjoy it.

I am interested to learn regression hypnosis. many people ask me about it so I though to devote my time and energy on this subgect.

I am not interestd in performing comedy hypnosis but regression. I want to hypnotise people and meke them discover their "past lifes".

I would really appreciate if you can give me the best sourses (books, DVD's, CD'S anything WORTH) about regression hypnotism.


Thank you in advance,
Neo

Learn to hypnotise. That part of it can be learnt on any good hypnosis course. By 'good' I mean one that teaches you to hynotize competently and safely.

How you choose to do PLR is much like mentalism about choosing a presentation. You can leave it wide open and simply provide a bit of guidance on three or four of the main ideas and get into it. Or you can entirely dictate the rationale for what you are doing and why. I believe Jon Chase did run a PLR course. Check his website.

Other than that I believe there are one or two classic texts that will give you a pretty good idea of where to take it once they are zapped.

Richard Webster has a good book on the subject and a technique to guarantee they go back into a past life. It also covers the business side. "Cashing in on Past Lives".

But as Anthony says you should really devote time and resources into learning how to hypnotise safely.

I once saw a famous stage hypnotist regress someone to a past life all the way back to their last moment on earth.

They screamed the theatre down and the hypnotist couldn't control the situation and it was very unpleasant. He couldn't stop her screaming.

I had very good success with the Richard Webster book on past life regression.

That's ok but I don't think the Webster method has, in reality, anything to do with hypnosis.

The method basically a simple hypnotic trance induction with a regression script. And the rest of the manual covers how to make money and sound like you know what you are talking about. Its very basic and personally I would seek out some training in hypnosis before passing yourself off as a past life regression therapist.

According to Richard its a mixture of hypnosis and the "Christos Experiment".
He also touches on whether hypnosis exists or not.

Its a very basic induction and script. He also takes the stance that past life regression are probably fake since there is no research that can make any real claims of it being real.

He leaves it up to you whether you believe hypnosis exists or not. Regression is not a subject that interests me.

But I have witnessed a very unpleasant stage past life where it got out of control and the preson on stage was obviously very distressed. And the hypnotist couldn't stop it. An irish hypnotist can't remember his name in the early 90s. Wasn't Halpern. The show got stopped while they took her back stage.

Any process that involves closing your eyes progressive relaxation and guided visualization especially with regression is hypnosis.

Unless of course you are in the "hypnosis doesn't exist camp". In which case your reality will be that it isn't about hypnosis.

No matter how crude or basic. Some people will go into quite deep and profound trance states with even less.

some of you might not like it.just have in mind that this is something very intresting for lay audience.

Some stage hypnotists will as part of their show bring someone up and do a regression. Its not very common Ive seen two that do it. Many years ago.

I am not a psycho-therapist, and I can't really delve too deeply here because doing so on this topic is really against this board's TOS, BUT I'll say briefly:

Regression hypnotherapy has fallen under A'LOT of negative scrutiny over the past 20 years, most especially when you go into the whole mess of "past lives"......people who're hypnotized are VERY SUSCEPTABLE TO SUGGESTION.....that's actually why hypnosis works. I'd say that if you aren't a trained mental health professional, you should stay far away from this; you're playing with people's emotions/brains.

I don't think doing past life regression is any more 'dangerous' than stiring up any other emotions during regular hypnosis. I mean after all, if you were worried about a negative past life experience coming up - you could just tell them that that wont happen! Tell them that in the past life they are going back to, its going to be a happy memory - and a happy place.
Its easy to see why past life regression could cause 'problems ' in someone though..they go back to a past life- and maybe the realization of having a past life could cause people to rethink their religious beliefs. Or they may start to relate problems in their present life back to their past life.
But I would say in general its safe - as with any hypnotic situation, you just have to handle it correctly.

Just to throw it out there, the very idea that you will hypnotise someone to uncover a past life, plants the suggestion that there IS A PAST LIFE!

That also applies to any form of therapy. The fact someone undergoes therapy plants the suggestion they will reach a desired outcome. Even hypnosis - the fact that you volunteer to be hypnotised suggests there is hypnosis and that the "hypnotists" can hypnotise you.

There is a part of NLP that talks about presuppositions and states that it "might" be possible all therapy may work because the mind has accepted the presupposition that it will. And the techniques may not be the cause.

Presupposition or hidden suggestions are in every sentence we write or speak.

Its the same with cold reading. 90% of the work its already done because the people who come for reading already believe. that's what richard webster says on his wonderful commercial cold reading cd.

Paul Budd apart from the ethical issues, why do you say that regression is dangerous??? I never realise why people say that it is very dangerous and that you should stay far away from it.

can you give your reasons why it is so dangerous

If you read my post about the stage hypnotist who lost control of the situation and stressed the volunteer its clear why its dangerous.

some people have deeply repressed memories and powerful negative emotions attached to events in their lives. This is a safety mechanism the mind sets up.

Regression by someone who doesn't know what they are doing can allow these feelings to surface and overwhelm the "subject". Which could lead to all kinds of claims against you. And possibly harm to the person.

Stage hypnotisys in the UK are no longer allowed to perform any kind of regression on stage.

Mindpunisher I read your review. but this is something that doesn't depend on the performer.
it could happen to anyone. even if you would do it with the same spectator you might have the same result. it could happen to you to have a spectator that these negative emotions would surface. again its not up to you its about the person you hypnotise.

That's why I advise you get training before you mess about with hypnosis. It was obvious the stage hypnotist had no clue how to deal with the situation.

I would never do regression on stage and never for therapy since there are much better methods around. I wouldn't bother with past life regression because it doesn't interest me.

And no you are wrong when you start hypnotising people you are responsable for the outcome period not your subject.

You wouldn't drive a car without passing a test.

Im just curious how are regressions different from past to present? I would imagine both could access emotions than need to be released carefully.

The event on stage I witnessed was very disturbing and the participant was obviously very distressed. And the hypnotist had no control over it.

I know supposedly imagined regressions are supposed to avoid abreactions but Ive seen events that contradict that.
