Hi Jeffery


Just being aware of how the hypnosis process works will be enough, take a few hours over a number of days on youtube, watching a host of different hypnosis inductions- this will prime your at a conscious level so you now have a choice.

Yet on other hand, is the person doing the stage show has also been trained in indirect hypnosis, then your stuffed hahahhahahahahhaha don't worry about such things watch TV- is way more harmful than any hypnosis show could ever be.


If it has consciousness it's already in a trance.

A person cannot be hypnotized without his/her will. Hypnotization is not possible against a persons will power.

Hi, I recently went to see a stage hypnotist show. The only people who were hypnotized were the ones who volunteered to up on stage. I guess if I chose to follow his instructions as he did his induction, I might have kept pace with the people on stage.
You shouldn't worry about indirectly being hypnotized, you should just go and enjoy the show...... that is unless we were all indirectly hypnotized and "think" we watched a show?..........
Nah..... have fun

It's simple, just don't go with it. Nobody can hypnotize you if you don't want to.

I agree with other comments. Don't worry about it.

I disagree with this statement. There are ways to gain indirect "permissions" and ways to misdirect one's intentions.

Without going into details, I can say that this has happened to me before...

I was in Southern California last month and went to a seminar by a hypnotist named Jim Lutes. Have you heard of him? He was amazing and held a two day event callled Mind Masterpiece. Great Charisma and skill.

I think you need to understand that hypnosis works through language/words and words effect and create meaning in the nervous system which in effect changes how we process meanings that we make, and as its by being able to use words to create meanings, then all language operates has hypnotic communication- because no matter if you have your eye open or closed, you have to process the world through your 5 senses and its through language- in the form of questions and suggestion, that creates the hypnotic effect, the single primary difference between so called normal language and hypnotic language is based on just how much attention you are giving to whats being said.

Have you ever read a really good book and got so engrossed in it that you read 50-60-70 pages, then made a time check, and an hour and half or more as gone by, yet you feel you have only been reading for a few minutes- hypnosis is not the exception its the rule anytime where words and language are in use, then the imagination, and memory and our ability to construct meaning out of any language based informations, is going to engage in some level of hypnotic effect because the nervous system does not know the difference between intention and process and all language is a process so all language is in effect hypnosis- no magic powers, just rules of how language functions with in the nerves system.

If it has consciousness it's already in a trance.

To answer your question: Just don't follow the instructions given to those that do want to be hypnotized. If you don't want to be, then you won't be. There is a specific part of the mind that controls this, that some call the super-concscious mind, and I call the judgmental mind. It controls what you will do and what you won't do. It is the guard dog for the subconscious mind so you just don't helplessly react to suggestion.

I hope that helps

What if you DO want to be hypnotized, but you are not a Somnambulant?

Since trying out self-hypnosis and relaxation, I've become increasing curious what it would be like to go deep enough to automatically respond to a suggestion without having to "issue" the command from my own conscious mind.

I can go into a light trance easily. I have even been to a medium trance (at least, I think so), where I am able to vividly see and consciously recall new ideas for one of my hobbies.

I've been trying a few tapes where they take you though some simple exercises after the deepening (feel the pen get hot/cold, arm tied to a balloon, etc), but so far, each has required a conscious command, or a mental interrupt to re-imagine the pen as something I know would be hot or cold.

I want to go from "ok, I'm lifting my arm up" to "hey! my arm is lifting up!", if that makes any sense. If this even possible, and is it more possible with a rapid induction of a stage hypnotist, versus the slow-n-steady audio tapes?

Easiest would be a rapid or instant induction done with a hypnotist, rather than self-hypno.

I think Matrixman pretty much sums it up from where I'm standing.

It's not quite as clear cut as the original question makes the subject out to be. At what stage is a person considered "hypnotised" vs. not being? It's more fluid than that, and we have to acknowledge the varying levels at play here. You wouldn't consider yourself hypnotized if you walked into a computer store and fancied an upgrade on your purchase based on the salesman's patter, would you? Yet the techniques involved are along the same lines, the basic guiding principles of how to bend another's will and influence or manipulate your interation with them is the same.

On the other hand if it's as straightforward as the original question being something like "how do I stop being manipulated into thinking I'm a chicken"... the idea of which many of my more novice students query during their initial training... don't be alarmed, I think you're safe from that ever happening. I draw many similarities with alcohol when speaking of hypnosis and its ability to influence - you can persuasde, encourage confidence, manipulate, but you - out right - cannot make someone do something he or she is strongly against. Nothing can convince me to get in a car with someone who's had alcohol; likewise nothing can convince me to strut around on stage clucking, no matter how good the hypnotist. Of course I'm coming at this with two signficant angles: the first being my training (adequate defense enough), but secondly, just like you, a total and utter unwillingness to participate.

I hope that sets your mind at ease a little!

I doubt a stage hypnotist is going to force someone on their stage. It's far more work than they have to do. They would rather find someone willing to be there and use them because it's easier and it makes their performance look better.

People who want to be hypnotized on a stage are willing to do much more than someone who's shy and doesn't want to be on stage, period.

I have been helping people for over 50 years with hypnosis...But I tell people what I do should be called de-hypnosis...Everyone is already hypnotized to their belief...I simply de-hypnotize them to their false beliefs and build a better blue print in their mind, brain and nervous system...
