Have you ever been hypnotized?
« on: April 25, 2018, 09:35:02 am »
I watched a talk show and someone said they were hypnotized so that they could become more positive and outspoken around groups of people. And by doing the hypnosis, they became comfortable talking to groups of people and was promoted at work.

I am curious about hypnosis. Anyone here ever do this or thought about it?

I don't see how that sort of stuff could work. I think the person has to be some mix of extremely suggestible and playing along.

No.  It's been tried on me a few times though.

I would never do it for fear I would make a fool of myself.

I would not do that. However, I have heard of someone saying that it helped them to quit smoking. I don't understand how.

No, I have never been hypnotized.  This is not a road I would want to go down.

We had a guy that came to our church a few years ago that was a hypnotist.  There isn't anything I can think of that I would need a hypnotist to help me overcome at this time.
Have a wonderful day!

I have been hypnotized twice.  Both times were on stage.  The first time I came out of it pretty early and was dismissed back into the crowd.  The 2nd time I had to be taken out of it and when I awoke I was very drowsy.  Now that I know more (Biblically speaking) I'll never participate in hypnosis again.

Yes in a way.  I did a past life regression with a professor NYU some years ago.

never... I find it interesting and intriguing... but can also be dangerous... you would have to find a real specialist, cause you don't know what they really put in your head. Would you really want someone to manipulate your thoughts and feelings?
I think I would, if I had to overcome a big trauma or something bad.. and I knew that would be the only possible way to feel better
