Some Tips To Learn Stage Hypnosis
If you've ever been to a stage hypnosis show, you may have been quite impressed with the seemingly magical feats displayed by the stage hypnotist. Perhaps you thought that you too would like to learn stage hypnosis, and how it works.
In this article I will be discussing the basic principles behind stage hypnosis and how it operates. This should give you an understanding of the techniques involved, and help you in your journey to learn stage hypnosis.
To begin with, a stage hypnotist will always conduct some form of induction with the audience before getting to the real “meat” of the show (which is bringing people up on stage to be hypnotized). This induction normally consists of having all the audience imagine that they're in some distant place, or having them raise both of their hands and imagining that one is lighter or heavier than the other.
What this does is it relaxed the audience and sets them in the mood to be hypnotized. You see, once someone has been hypnotized once, they can easily be rehypnotized again by the same person with just the click of a finger. The trick with stage hypnosis is to hypnotize the audience before volunteers are brought up on stage. Since the volunteers would have been hypnotized at the beginning of the show when they were in the crowd, they will easily fall into hypnosis again once they come up on stage.
This is a crucial step that you should be aware of if you wish to learn stage hypnosis. Most people are not aware that when the hypnotist is guiding them into hypnosis, and explaining to them what hypnosis is, that they're actually becoming perfect volunteers. If the hypnotist just asked someone on the street to come up on stage, then odds are the hypnotist wouldn't be able to hypnotize them with just the click of their fingers.
Now once an audience member comes up on stage, they will already have confidence in the hypnotist, especially since they experience hypnosis earlier, and are aware of what it is. This builds up expectation in the person that hypnosis will work. All the hypnotist must then do is simply click their fingers, and the person will enter into a trance state. Once a person is in this state of trance, they become susceptible to whatever suggestions the hypnotist wishes to plant.
One of the most popular suggestions is of course to make a person believe they're a chicken, although if you want to learn stage hypnosis, it's always good to improvise and try something different.
