Topic: Recommendations for cheap quality hypno trick books
Message: Posted by: miistermagico (Oct 15, 2018 07:10PM)
Dear Mystery Entertainers,
I am looking for some recommendations for some cheap quality hyno trick books.
Anyone out there willing to share their knowledge with me?
What are the effects? Any real obscure killers?
Sincerely,
miistermagico

You want cheap, but also quality? Generally speaking, those are mutually exclusive.

Are you looking for hypnosis, or are you looking for tricks? Those terms are also more or less mutually exclusive in my opinion.

Can you be more specific on what you're after?

Dear WitchDocChris,
Only tricks. I prefer to leave hypnosis to professional certified hypnotherapists.
I usually buy used books. I delight in bargains. Why buy new?
Sincerely,
miistermagico

Dear WitchDocChris, Reverend Christopher Thisse
Congratulations on becoming a member of the clergy.
Becoming ordained is a long process.
If I remember correctly, Reverend Billy Graham always kicked himself
for not graduating and getting a diploma from a seminary.
Sincerely,
miistermagico

I appreciate the sentiment, but it takes moments to be ordained online. I originally did it to be able to do weddings for friends, then ran with it. I've since largely dropped emphasis on that as it no longer suits my focus.

Personally I've always preferred new books but to each their own.

This section is for entertainment hypnosis specifically. You'll probably have better luck asking in Penny for your Thoughts, Inner Thoughts, or maybe even Inside the Crypt or the Bizarre sections.

There's a seller on eBay that specializes in older magic and metalism booklets. They had a batch of "Hypno Tricks" booklets from the 40s I think - pretty cheap, around $10. Search for "Hypno Tricks" on there and you'll find tons of stuff.

In my experience, it's largely all the same. From the early 1900s until now, it's just different ways to use the same physiological phenomena with different scripting. Some more effective than others. The only departure from that formula I've seen is Aaron Alexander's "Pygmalion Effects" which does take the use of those phenomena to the "next level" as it were. However, that book is pretty difficult to find for sale and is not cheap when you do.

Dear WitchDocChris,
Thank you for your kind and informative reply. It is always a pleasure to hear
from you. Now and then I come across physiological phenomena that are
completely new to me. I find them very amazing. Thanks again.
And for the new word "physiological."
Sincerely,
miistermagico

A lot of hypno tricks are physiological in nature!

If what you want are Pseudo hypnotic demonstrations that look like hypnosis but aren't at all hypnotic? Let me know and I'll send you some recommendations, in PM.

Your very welcome miistermagico :) It's good that you want to learn from the truth, rather than the lies that some people want to push. Happy Holidays.
