Hi all,

After a few failed attempts I managed to bring someone into hypnosis and went through a few phenomenon with them. From hand lift to hand stuck to face to laughing outrageously and back into a relaxed trance. It was quite an amazing experience for me and the hypnotee. The hypnotee said they felt brilliant afterwards and had a great nights sleep just as I had suggested!!
Can't wait to do more,

Sea

I did magnetic hands and then used a kind of relaxation with deep breathing and counting backwards till they got confused. It worked really well and was quite fast. Once I got a hand floating up I knew I had them under.

Is it a good idea for the beginner to have 'outs' as it were? Perhaps a ct as a backup just in case?

Outs? Hypnosis isn't magic? How is a CT a backup for hypnosis? Perhaps you don't have an understanding of hypnosis?

Your post makes no sense at all? In regards to "outs" - that would depend on the routine you were doing, but I am at a loss to think how you can equate this question to Hypnosis.

Hi Benseatreader

In hypnosis there are no outs. It truly is you and nothing else and it really should be presented that way as well.

OK, so I had another go yesterday. I tried an instant induction which worked as I got a hand lift, hand stick with open eyes and even a small visual hallucination of a butterfly. I tried to make up a post hypnotic suggestion on the fly but it was so crappily delivered and stupid that the hypnotee started to come around so I just went through the wake up procedure. I then tried on a guy, I could not even get a hand lift but went through the wake up process and he said he felt good.

I found the instant induction did not get them as deep a the last time doing a count down. Also I was not as prepared myself and it was sprung on me yesterday afternoon

Thanks,

Sea

Forgot to mention I had a failed name amnesia with the first hypnotee which shook my confidence a bit.

Actually it is quite easy to build outs into a street hypnosis routine. If the hypnosis works, great. If not, then you blend seemlessly into another routine. No problem. Perhaps instead of criticising someone who knows less than you, and flexing your mighty egos, some of you might think before you post.

I remember my first time when I was newbie in hypnosis. My first time was horrible and I read everything straight from the paper and didn't know how to observe my "test subject" or anything at all.
He didn't respond very well as you can guess. I stepped away from hypnosis for some time and it destroyed my self-confidence.

I started newly, I read everything what I could find. I read 5-10 books (try library!) before I dared to try hypnosis again. After that, I was very sure I knew enough about everything and how hypnosis work and I could do it, but still, it was new situation for me and I had very bad experience (IMHO) in my shoulders.
Next session went a lot better! It wasn't a lot in visual or entertainment way, but it was a lot for me! I gave coins in my subject hand and told him not to give them back to me. I hypnotize him and just asked him to give the coins for me (with finely planned words) and he gave them to me. After that sun was shining for me.

I went even through the hypnotherapist course to build more self-confidence and know better what hypnosis is and what all I could do with it. It was fun course, but I already knew pretty much everything from the books.

But in the end. Reading books and learning what hypnosis is, is only one part of the trade. And it is important part where everyone should be starting. After that you must start to practice it and practice a lot. You must build your self-confidence as hypnotist. You must learn who you are as hypnotist (what you can do, what you like to do, what are your weak spots and so on. Not everything fit for everyone!) When you trust yourself, others will (more likely) also trust your skills.
Now after 10 years I'm still newbie in hypnosis, but I know I can hypnotize anyone who I want and when ever I want (as long as they are co-operative!) Of course not everyone are able to see visual hallucinations and if they don't go "deep" enough I don't even try those things. I just work with what I have in my hands during that moment. (I'm not stage hypnotist, so I don't send "weak subjects" back to their seats.)

There's absolutely nothing wrong with having outs in hypnosis when presented as a form of entertainment. It's comforting to know that you have a safety net to fall back on and will boost your confidence, which will in turn aid in the success of the hypnosis piece.

By having an out, it allows me to relax and focus on the hypnotic techniques that I must deliver. If their hand sticks, wonderful. If not, I segue into staging the entire thing as an experiment in unconscious communication. I pull out a swam* and say...

"I was actually trying to send you a number..." sort of thing.

This sure beats saying..."Now TRY as hard as you can to UNSTICK your hand"...and then they clearly lift their hand up.

Sure, a swami* is part of every good hypnotists performance!

Don't know if you directed that post at me, however, for the record - " a mighty ego" is something I do not have. If it wasn't directed at me then I suppose it is a "mighty lack of observation" I suffer from.

By the way, keep at it Seamus and you'll find the more you do it, the easier and more automatic it will become. Remember, it is more about how you present it and yourself than the hypnosis itself.
