Do you ever get to thinking that you need to spur yourself on somehow? That you need to give yourself a kick along to propel yourself towards your goals.
That’s how I was feeling on Sunday 11th. Remembrance Day. Remember to believe in yourself.
With the next hypnosis show at The BrewHouse coming up on November 29th I thought I’d do some hypnotic warming up. Just like when you warm up or practice for a footy match so that you are on top of your game when you play the game.
With today being the 12th November that means there are 17 days until the show.
So the question I asked myself was “How can I prepare best for the show so that I give my audience a great hypnosis show experience?” As I pondered the question, the answer came to me immediately like the proverbial bolt of lightening from the blue. Why not challenge yourself to do a public hypnosis demonstration every day from the 12th November to 29th November. Do something different, something better each day. With this in mind I committed to carrying out this task – I christened it “The 17 Day Hypnosis Challenge”.
Today’s I started with some simple demonstrations of suggestability testing and a Butterfly Induction. You can see this on You Tube at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b3xTKHNf4Bs&feature=channel&list=UL
What surprises me is the reticence of Aussies with regard to hypnosis and their misperception that somehow the hypnotist will take control of their mind. Not true. YOU are always in control of your own mind. My role is simply to be a navigator. In this case navigating you to fun and relaxed experiences.
The one other fear that came up as I was talking to people today was that they would somehow be forced to do embarrassing things – like the chicken thing. Again, NOT TRUE. When I do a hypnosis show it is important to look after my volunteers. You are helping me and the rest of the audience to have a great time so its important to look after you. That means – no embarrassing routines, no demeaning of the volunteers and no adult routines.
You’ll get more information and updates as I progress with my public hypnosis demonstrations over the remaining 16 days.
Enjoy your day
