“That’s neat, that’s neat, that’s neat, that’s neat… I really love those hypnosis feet…”
I think the song went like that anyway. 😉
Last weekend on my hypnotherapy training diploma, when the students had broken out into pairs to practice their skills and get a hypnosis exercise dones, I noticed one of my students wiggled his feet each time he went into hypnosis… I caught those hypnosis feet on camera on my phone and thought I’d share it with you here…
I often suggest to people experiencing hypnosis that it is best to experience stillness whilst in hypnosis, mainly because when you are really still, you have less spatial awareness and it helps create a deeper hypnosis experience. When people fidget and shuffle around, they get reminded where their fingers and legs are (if scratching their legs that is) and so they get more grounded and less inclined to drift inside their minds.
That said, if someone develops a kind of rhythm to their relaxed state, or their hypnosis, then I think that is lovely and can even be used to develop more depth and even reproduce the hypnosis state at will. Interesting stuff…
Interesting dancing hypnosis feet; What I’m wondering is whether or not that person can hear some music or beat they are going into trance with? As the sound on my pc doesn’t seem to be working so not sure if music was playing.
I’ve been told by a few different people that i’m a bit of a fidget, but however, this contrary to what others think, actually allows me to relax more deeply…
I’m not like that all the time, sometimes it’s just nice to relax, not doing and not thinking, other than being narrowly focused on the outcome of the trance experience.
No music was playing at all, no. It was just ones own rhythm being kept.
With hypnosis, we often find ourselves focusing inwards much more than usual and as such, we become aware of ourselves a great deal more. This often causes us to fidget or shuffle or scratch as we become aware of things (sensations) that we were not previously aware of.
That is brilliant. I suppose if he was a regular client you would have a great cue for delivering a suggestion / program. I bet there are lots of other interesting things that people do that are different and personal to them. I will be extra aware of things like that.
Thanks for that Mel… And yes indeed… Awareness of those finer distinctions are real keys that make the difference.
