Musings From A Smart-Ass Hypnotist

An Outrageous, Smart-Ass Hypnotist

smart-assI got a strange email the other day. I wish it were stranger but I get emails like this fairly regularly. Learning how to frame hypnosis to people is an important part of success in the field. And that’s true if you’re just hypnotizing your friends, as well.

And there’s a way to frame hypnosis and NLP so that you help people feel comfortable and increase their understanding of what these incredible techniques can do for them. This isn’t it.

FYI, I’ve changed the name and a few other details to protect the guilty…

===========

Send Me An Object That Hypnotizes Women And Makes Men Do The Opposite I Tell Them!

From: Bill
To: Keith Livingston
Subject: Hypnotizing People

Please send me an object that hypnotizes people. I want it to only work on women. For men: if I use it on men, it will cause the man or boy to do the opposite of what they are told to do while hypnotized. I want the cheapest hypnotizing object so I do not have to spend too much money. I will send you another message about it when I am ready for it to be brought to me. Please let an instruction maual about the object with the object when it is brought to me.

If you have any requests, questions, or comments, please send them to me (email address deleted).

Let’s Try Making Sense

From: Keith Livingston
To: Bill
Subject: Re: Hypnotizing People

It doesn’t work that way Bill.
I don’t have an object that hypnotizes people. There is no such object.
I’d suggest you read a bit about how hypnosis works.
Sincerely,

Keith Livingston

I Demand Satisfaction!

From: Bill
To: Keith Livingston
Subject: Re: Re: Hypnotizing People

You must find an object soon before July 1. It could be a ring or a spiral clock. But it must be sent before June 28.

The Kicker

From: Keith Livingston
To: Bill
Subject: Re: Re: Re: Hypnotizing People

OK,
I will send it to you. I’ve got to do it secretly though. I’m going to send it to you disguised as an ordinary object. You’ll know it because it will hypnotize you. Look through your regular mail and packages you receive until you find it.

Sincerely,

Keith Livingston

“Bill” wrote me back and asked me not to point the hypnosis at him. Since he seemed genuinely concerned, I told him I was kidding and there was no such thing as an object that hypnotizes people and makes women do what you say and men do the opposite. While I’m sure you could set that up with suggestion, I can’t imagine it being put to good use anyway (except perhaps as a stage hypnosis suggestion).

PS: I’d love to hear your stories about the craziest things people have approached you to do with hypnosis or the crazy things they think hypnosis can do.

Enjoy,

Keith
