"What if I can't be hypnotised?"

It happens at almost every show And in many one on one or group therapy sessions. Someone will come up and ask me "What if I can't be hypnotised?" or tell me"You can't hypnotise me!"

Both interesting questions and demonstrate that many people today are confused about what hypnosis is, and also , what it isn't"

Lets start with what hypnosis is.
It is a state of deep relaxation where the volunteer is so focused on the hypnotist's voice that they simply block everything else out.

Your Reality is a construct

If you've watched The Matrix movies you've probably heard that phrase before. But have you ever wondered what that means and how it relates to you?

When we observe people and what they do, we see that they live their lives in accordance with the belief systems that they have installed. The beliefs act like a thermostat. When they get too hot (outperforming to their beliefs) or too cold (underperforming to their beliefs) then the thermostat kicks in and brings them back to normal (whatever they perceive normal to be).

You are wired differently!

Did you know that each of us is wired differently? That's why...if you are hypnotising someone....you need to be reading all the verbal and non verbal cues to check the wiring. It is calibrating how they work at different levels.
This was vividly demonstrated last Saturday at a private show. I was doing. During the suggestability tests at the beginning of the show one person in particular reacted differently. When doing the finger vice test, rather than her fingers come together they went away quite strongly and very clearly.

What will you do, or not, in a hypnotic trance?

Some people say that you will do anything in a trance …. and some say you will not do in trance what you would not do in your normal conscious state.
What's the reality? Trick question. We create our own reality. If you’re a fan of Derren Brown you may have seen him hypnotise a young man to be an assassin. Even though the young man would probably never assassinate anyone in his normal conscious state the suggestions were done in such a way that he was merely shooting a target …not a person.

Opening the door to.... your unconscious mind....

Quite often I’m asked how does hypnosis work? How do I get inside other people’s minds?
Well the thing is, I don’t “get inside your mind”. What I do is open up a way for me to speak directly with….your unconscious….mind. So, don’t worry, I’m not going to go in and take control of your mind. I’m just going to speak directly to your unconscious mind to help you access more of your inner resources.
Regardless of the context, be it a show, workshop, therapy or even a covert hypnosis session, my intent is for you to benefit.

Are you rigid or flexible?

Hi folks,
This is an interesting insight today. One of my teachers used to say to me - utilise the client's trance - be flexible. What he means is to start working with people where they are. When someone comes to see a hypnotist/NLPer for some tranceformation work or to see a show they bring with them not only their map of the world. They also bring with them whatever they are experiencing that day, that moment, when they step/sit in front of you.
Last Friday night's show at Ettalong Bowling Club was no exception.

What's a hypnotic gift?

What's a hypnotic gift? That's a question I'm often asked when I explain how I finish off one of my comedy hypnosis shows, street hypnosis demonstrations or "Power Of The  Mind" presentations.
The key to every show, demonstration or talk is the volunteers that are participating. Without the volunteers there is no show. So, for me, it's important to express my appreciation for their trust and support. And that's a big thing for someone to come up out of the crowd, onto the stage and trust me as the hypnotists or speaker.

To ..go into trance...you need to learn to ...go into trance....

If you've been reading my blogs you may have noticed that I do hypnosis shows as well as "change" or "transformation work". I've heard some people say that one takes away from the other BUT I find the opposite. That doing personal change work complements the show work.  Makes for a more diverse and equipped professional.
In fact I did a show last night at The King St Brewhouse in Darling Harbour, Sydney. One of the questions I was asked a lot after the show last night was this - Why is it that some people seem to go into that hypnotic state called trance more easily than others?

Manifesting reality - see the movie Ruby Sparks

The world is exactly what we think it is ….and the way we think about it creates our world. If you’re familiar with the concept of manifesting or co-creation then you may resonate with what I’m about to share.

Depending upon what you believe…..you experience the world through your five senses according to your belief systems. Fascinating to observe when working with clients or with hypnosis show volunteers. For example, in a show I may tell volunteers to believe that the number two does not exist.

What happened to your 2013 New Year Resolutions?

It's now February. One month of 2013 has slipped on by. For many, many people, their New Year resolutions have also slipped past. Did it happen to you?


What were your resolutions? Did you act on them? Or not?

Some of the issues with keeping the resolutions are lack of - motivation, clarity and action.

Motivation - If you're not creating this change for YOU (ie doing it for someone else) then you're less likely to succeed.

Clarity - no one will get to where they want to be or have want they want to have unless you are crystal clear on what you want to be, have or do.
