A First

I was hypnotised today
No I didn't cluck like a chicken 
Nor did I scream like a girl when hands were clapped.
I just sat on a comfortable sofa in Cheshire covered in a warm throw with my eyes closed and my hands in my lap
And I travelled a long, long way, to a time long ago

  1. Ah, but you don't actually know if you clucked like a chicken or screamed like a girl. :0)

  5. I was hypnotized once. It did have a calming effect for awhile. Never went back for another session though.

  10. I had a course of hypnotherapy, very strange feeling, not asleep but not awake either. I could never grasp how long the sessions were- they felt like a few minutes but were actually an hour. It did help with what I was trying to fathom out. Good wishes as always x

  18. Interesting. Tell us more.
    I've not long had two sessions of reiki, that helps, to give yourself permission to be kind to yourself. And to balance yourself.

  19. Interesting, John, leaving other interventions aside (say an anesthetic) hypnosis takes a lot of trust. Like the majority of your commentators so far I'd be rather reluctant. It's one hell of a step to take. What compelled you? The furthest I have gone to suspend disbelief when I had acupuncture. Bloody miracle John. Seventh heaven,

  21. Ps - I just remembered that once whilst I was having reiki there was a loud rush down my chimney(yes The brick chimney in my sitting room)-I never spoke to the reiki practioner,but after he said whilst standing alongside me there was a lady by him.I think it was my mum who died at 56 and she was very much "into" alternative things x

    2. I'm so very sorry Jo.I lost my mum in 1991 and I have comfort of her close to me daily.She said to me before she was even ill-"I don't think we are born to live only this life"- so I believe our loved ones are near by-I still talk to her xx

    3. I'm sorry for your loss Jo. But watch out for a white feather. A white feather is the symbol of your guardian angel. Now it may be poppycock or it may not but I found a huge white feather on the doorstep (about 8 inches) the day I was leaving the UK after my dad's funeral - and I'd been looking out for one all week, but no luck. Like I say, it might be rubbish but I believe and either way it is VERY comforting!

    4. Jo and Treaders- I notice heart shapes unexpectadly- in puddles,in dog food,in soggy teabags and even today I looked down at my left wellie and there was a tiny heart made from a water droplet.They are sent,I know from my loved ones to say they are close still xx

  22. I’ve been hypnotized. The first time was to get over my fear of confined spaces so I could get on an airplane again. That worked.
    The other 2 times was to go back to childhood to find out what happened to me as a little girl/toddler/baby. I was told afterward that my memories would come to me when I was ready to know. I don’t think I’ll ever be ready because I smelled the odor of sex when under and I was crying when I was awakened. Some things may be better left buried.

  23. Fascinating. I never have been hypnotized, and really don't want to be.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I doubt I could be hypnotized. I don't want to be.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh no
    I need more details! I've always wanted to be hypnotized!
    Come on, John, you have got to tell us all about it.

    XOXO

    What were the circumstances that brought you to the comfortable sofa in Cheshire covered with a warm throw with your eyes closed and your hands in your lap?

    I hope it was a pleasant experience with nothing threatening like dinosaurs involved.

    So far, I've never been hypnotized.

    Hugs!

  27. People have some weird ideas about hypnosis.

    If your session was a regression, then I hope you enjoyed it. If it was for therapeutic purposes, then I hope it helps.

    1. Your response to John's hypnosis session is the best one here! It's what I would have stated, as well, however you did it quite well!

    2. me too. curious if it was past life regression or current childhood for therapy.

  28. I've known hypnosis to turn a breech baby and from my observation it helps make childbirth smoother.
    I hope your experience was equally positive

  29. I'd love to know why you decided to be hypnotised ! I tried it to cure my fear of learning to drive, it didn't work !

  30. I was hypnotized once... although I wasn’t really. Would love to experience the real thing. I hope yours was helpful or at least interesting.

  31. Terrified of what I'd say

  32. More please 🙏🏼

  33. Interesting experience I can imagine, John.
    I was 'hypnotised' in a group regression session many years ago. I really tried to let myself 'go'. Ten minutes into it I began to sweat and couldn't breathe. All I could recall was wearing a Roman toga and marching with other similar people. After session we all discussed our experience. I was told that maybe I was being burned alive because I was an early Christian. All I knew was that it was pretty damn hot!! lol

    1. I did a past life regression once. I was looking at my feet clad in sandals sitting on a low wall enclosing a front courtyard (not fancy) and overcome with feelings of guilt and regret. I had just learned that a friend (?) someone had been killed because I told someone else something I should have kept to myself.

  34. Sounds pleasant enough to me John.

  35. I had one of those out-of-body experiences once, after drinking moonshine, the real stuff too.
    I magically became a pole-dancer *shame*.
