I absolutely love what I do (hypnosis) and wanted to share some highlights of fun/memorable sessions. This story is part of a series where I recount some fun/memorable hypnosis sessions I have enjoyed over the years. All client identities are kept 100% anonymous.
So this one is a very recent experience. It was an off-the-cuff, opportunistic trance (on my part) with a guy who I’d met for coffee and who had tried to tell me he couldn’t be hypnotised because he was analytical and his mind was always going a mile a minute.
Always up for a challenge I proceeded (whilst we were each enjoying our hot chocolates – which were delicious by the way) to trance him. It was my usual casual conversational style…the one that kind of creeps up on you so you don’t realise what’s happened until it’s too late (I can see all my boys nodding automatically in agreement. Haha).
He really enjoyed the experience of having his mind be calm instead of a frantic, turbulent jumble of thoughts – the sensation of peacefulness and stepping out of time really appealed. I also had fun throwing in a few post-hypnotic triggers (triggers that I can use even when you’re not in trance).
It did take me a little while (30 minutes maybe?) to get him into the right head-space to be able to enjoy and appreciate the possibilities, but I never rush. Things take as long as they take and I truly believe he appreciated being able to take things at his own pace. The whole thing was really chilled and informal and relaxed (probably helped by the hot chocolate) and it was fun. A genuinely spontaneous experience that was “just for the hell of it”.
Analytical people are always wonderful to hypnotise because they have this innate ability which makes them fantastic trance subjects. Because their minds naturally work faster they’re able to self-verify the evolution of their descent into trance and the associated developments within that experience (basically how it feels to go in to trance). This in turn allows them to confirm that yes, a transformation definitely is taking place and they are brilliant at engaging with it. The result is that they can (and do) often trance faster and deeper than most.
I never try to suppress a person’s natural analytical ability. Analyzing what’s happening to you as you go deeper into trance won’t compromise the experience. It won’t stop you from trancing. If anything it allows you to engage with the experience more.
