Anyone here do hypnosis? I do, and it is great. The only problem is if they know you do hypnosis they don't want to see the magic and skip right to the "good stuff". And another problem, if you are doing it at a party, which is usually when they want you to do it. There are always people running in and out of the room. Its very hard to get someone under if that's happening. And then they think you are full of it cuz you couldn't get them under. But a lot of my friends seen me be successful in doing it before, so they believe me. Its a great reputation maker. Just don't tell anyone about it if you cant do it right there, right now. Or they wont believe you. So, if you want the word about you to get around, hypnosis is a great way of doing so. There is a great book at Chapters that teaches hypnosis if anyone is interested. Its called "Fun With Hypnosis" The slogan says " Learn to hypnotize in under an hour" And its true, I hypnotized my mom an hour after reading. BUT, it does not make you a pro, and does not teach fast inductions, but I would highly reccommend it! -Cory.

Cory,
I have hypnotized people in the middle of Harley Davidson rallys and at biker bars and if youre having trouble at house partys then I suggest that you find a better book to study and stop recommending something that dosent work.
Finally the mere thought that your performing magic and hypnosis in the same breath indicates that you are not ready for hypnosis.

You are correct no reason not to.

It is as I mentioned a safty net.

I did intend it to be a bad thing.

Mixing magic and hypnosis doesn't bother me. I've done it dozens of times. What bothers me is that you're hypnotizing people an hour after reading some half ass lesson. I strongly suggest you take this a little more seriously!

And by the way. Please learn how to SPELL hypnosis (not Hypnonosis) before attempting to hynotize anyone!!!!!!!!

I am trained in hypnosis and agree that a book claiming to teach the skills in one hour is not enough to feel prepared to go out there and hypnotize. It may be a good book for learnig a basic induction, but I suggest getting professional training from a qualitfied instructor. Just remember that you are dealing with the minds of people, not a deck of cards.

Ya, I am in no way a proffesional hypnotist, I still do have a lot to learn, and I did read a lot more of the book, still reading in fact. And don't worry, I do know how to spell hypnosis! Smile

The subject of this thread appears to be a typo--you'll notice that Cory spelled hypnosis properly in the body of his post.

At the risk of appearing immodest, I'd like to suggest that anyone with a serious interest in the subject of hypnosis might find one of my books helpful. You'll find an excerpt at: http://erh3.homestead.com/hypexc.html

You shouldn't use hypnosis period without proper training. Nobook can prepare you for what can go wrong. No training can prepare you totally for what can go wrong but a reading a book and playing around is asking for trouble..

Well, Im a little confused, do you mean that something can go wrong as in they never wake up? Cuz, that cant happen. Or do you mean if you say something maybe along the lines of a grandmother and theyre grandmother died and they took it real hard. Then they start crying, and they hate you and all the stuff??? I would like to know what you mean when you say "something goes wrong". Thanks.

Thus my point. All the more reason to seek out additional training!!

Ya, that's what I would like to know. If I wanted to be a proffesional, I would go thru training. But this is just a mere hobbie if you will, that people will sometimes ask me to do. I don't include it in my routines, altho, it does sometimes happen that people will ask me to do it after a show. But I am not a proffesional magician now, so its not like I do it often, just when friends come over and ask me to. Even if I was a proffesional magician, I wouldnt include that in my routine.
