Personal experience is the best way to simulate reality for your volunteers.

As stated in this week’s video demonstration, common sense should tell you when this type of hypnotic phenomena is (and isn’t) appropriate to perform. It’s understood that neither HypnoKick, Jon Wayes or any of their affiliated partners/programs/entities are responsible for your actions after you’ve read this lesson. It is understood that lessons like these are no substitute for the knowledge & understanding one should always acquire via consultations/mentorships from professionals in the field, to safely and properly execute the type of demonstrations described in this week’s lesson.
If you have drank too much before, you likely remember what it’s like to be buzzed, let alone drunk.
If you have ever smoked before, you probably remember what a high feels like to some degree.
If you have never done either of these, it’s still easy to simulate a general experience for your volunteer in-the-moment. Simply use their personal experience.
Having an experience with a particular substance will help you understand how to person may also feel if they were to be using said substance in that moment.
However, using context clues, you’ll know which of your audience members a simulation will work best on, even if you yourself have never drank, smoke or anything.
Let’s say you have drank before. Regardless if it was wine, beer, liquor or anything of the sort, there’s likely been a time you felt buzzed or drunk from consuming it. Remember how much slower you were in processing information mentally, let alone verbally delivering it.
Let’s say you have smoked before. You probably remember what that high feels like. How you may feel a bit light headed or giggly or super hungry.
In either case, the idea is to take each specific detail you remember from your own experience and script it for the volunteer’s mind to digest and react. Assuming your scripting is done well, your volunteer will react accordingly.
Generally, I will eye certain people out who have been responding very well to the hypnosis from the initial induction. By reading the audiences body language (something we’ve covered in previous lessons and in greater detail in our home-based trainings), it will be easy to tell who is truly hypnotized and who may be on the brink.
As with any hypnotic demonstration that requires great attention to detail on the volunteer’s end for an optimal reaction, it’s quickest and easiest if we perform the simulation on any somnambulists present (those who I previously described as “truly hypnotized”).
Once I find my somnambulist, I’ll choose which type of routine I want to simulate. If I want to simulate being drunk, I’ll talk them through imaging the beginning stages of being drunk (feeling happy, slurred words, not being able to stand/walk straight, etc).
If I want to simulate being high, I’ll talk them through imaging wanting to laugh hysterically, feeling light-headed, not being able to move/get up much, etc).
If you, the hypnotist, want to simulate an experience you’re unfamiliar with, you can easily contact someone who you know has personally experienced said state of mind, Interview them and ask how they felt mentally/physically/emotionally/etc. This will give you enough basic information to form a simulated script.
As you’ll see in this week’s video demonstration below, I mention the gentleman is “fun” because I see his cap which has a design related to Marajuana on it. Thus, I don’t need to know what a marajuana high is since he likely already knows.
For this reason, when I saw his hat, I understood the hat as my context clue and randomly decided to perform the correlating simulation. Furthermore, because he was deeply hypnotized since the induction, I had a good hunch his reaction would be memorable. Additionally, because this was a university show, I knew I could incorporate mature language to both better emphasize the experience within his mind as well as provoke a reaction from the surrounding audience.
This week’s video demonstration shows the power of hypnotic simulation…
If you have experience the reality you wish to simulate for your volunteer(s), half of your job is already done. If you have never experienced the reality you wish to simulate, you can either observe others in the state, interview someone or simply look for context clues within your audience for those who will likely respond the best.
This is something I’ve been playing around with for years now and I think it will be neat for you to practice. Remember, in the same way that certain people react to general hypnosis (aka relaxation) differently, if your volunteer doesn’t fully react to the simulation, move onto your next best volunteer at hand. At the very least, you’ll have provided all interested volunteers with an opportunity to relax and let go of their stress/anxiety!
