Hypnosis, Suggestion and Mentalism

Posted: March 9, 2010 in Mentalism

Contrary to what many may think, hypnosis is nothing more than a deep state of relaxation with heightened suggestibility. Everyone goes into light hypnosis 4 or 5 times a day without realizing. When we’re sitting down just staring out the window and daydreaming, our eyes faze out and we enter a very light hypnotic trance.

As a famous person once said “all hypnosis is self hypnosis” and this is very true. If you are the person being hypnotised then you are the one doing all the work, the hypnotist is simply guiding you into that deep state of relaxation. Hypnosis and Suggestion can be very powerful when used correctly, and when you become good enough, can even be used to get your shopping completely free of charge, although this of course would be illegal.

During the next few articles, i’ll be explaining exactly what hypnosis is and how it can be used, believe it or not, if someone wants to be hypnotised and they believe that its possible, it can be very easy to put them into a trance within a matter of minutes, and then, all you need to do is deepen the trance, test it, and then give your suggestion. I’ll be adding some very simple hypnotic commands which can stick someones hand to a table, make someone believe a piece of paper is a £5 note and even convince someone to hand over their mobile phone and belongings.

Hypnosis is often used to help people heal from pain, quit smoking, and indeed cure phobias. However Hypnotic Suggestion can also be used to persuade someone to do something for you.

I’ll be talking about the various ways to get people into deep hypnotic trances from instant inductions to slower, more longer lasting inductions, i’ll discuss different and simple techniques to successfully bring someone into that deep, relaxing state of hypnosis.  That’s all coming up in the next couple of days.
