Try taking a more graduated approach in a waking hypnosis manner. Trying to do a hand stick while the subject is awake can be a great convincer when you do it right. Plus you involve the subject instead of just giving orders.

Furthermore, I would strongly advise you exercise extreme caution when you work with people like this.

What happens if they are so unresponsive they don't respond to your suggestion that it's all over once you're finished with them?

There is a whole world out there of people who go into hypnosis but then become what we call: sleepers.
It simply happens. They do exist. It IS a fact.
The problem is that there are some hypnotists who are NOT as experienced as they themselves believe they are, and instead of asking questions to develop and grow they would rather, well lets call it what it is..... talk utter ****e.

Uncle Bob read the original post he said they respond to "wake up" suggestions so they are not sleepers who don't and can be difficult to wake up. People are unresponsive for all kinds of reasons. If you are doing shows and getting a high percentage then their is something wrong with what you are doing. Some of the most initially unresponsive subjects can turn out to be among your best ever subjects when handled correctly. Other times they don't.

But like Danny I thought we were talking about professional stage hypnosis. it looks like by most of the replies we aren't.

It is very difficult to advise without seeing the show in person. Do you even have a video of it so that we can get an idea? All we can do is speculate and there is a high chance that the speculation is wrong. It would be wonderful if you could find an experienced stage hypnotist to go to your show and advise you afterwards. Of course that may not be possible.

It doesn't sound as if you are doing these demonstrations in public. That might make an enormous difference. Let me tell you how I learned stage hypnosis. I tried and tried and tried to do one to one stuff but it plain didn't work. However, the success rate improved significantly once I got on a stage. I was astonished at the reaction of the subjects and in fact I was far more amazed than the audience.

It really is nigh on impossible to advise you without seeing you in action. Get someone with a camera to video you and be brave enough to post it here. It might be a brutal experience but I have no idea how else we can help you. I bet once we see what you are up to we will figure it out instantly.
