Since I want to start practicing hypnosis, I had to find some test subjects. I asked around a little and found that many people are very afraid of hypnosis. There was a girl who, for one reason or another, was holding my wrist (maybe I had stung her with something to see). I told him:
"You know, I could hypnotize you like that in a few seconds …"
She made a face like a deer on a dark road, staring into the headlights approaching for the killing. She quickly let go and soon begged me not to do it. She was so afraid of hypnosis. Now, situations like this are pretty funny, but not really useful in my search for topics to hypnotize.
Many people seem to have a really horrible opinion of what hypnosis is. I guess what we are learning here is that people really do not know much about hypnosis. People take what they see on television and accept this as the truth, and I must admit that after seeing people being humiliated on TV by hypnosis, I can understand their fears.
Again, a good hypnotist will at least have some influence on people's opinions or decisions. This just proves that people need to be educated on what hypnosis is, and what you can achieve with it. This also proves the need for a pre-chat before hypnotizing people, you have to put them at ease, make them believe that nothing bad can or can happen, maybe even tell them that they can wake up at any time.
There are many ways to accomplish this, and it is not difficult. But here's a quick tip, do not use phrases like "Do not be scared" or "You should not be scared" because they tend to make you wonder like, "Wait, what?" " Is there anything that I should be afraid of? so ?! "Just make sure it will be a pleasurable experience and that they will be able to experience feelings they've never felt before." Curiosity raises expectations and makes people want to go under. Try to get them to feel safe instead of trying to push your beliefs by force.
Remember all those movies where they say "Do not look down!"
