Opening the door to.... your unconscious mind....

Posted on April 11, 2013 at 8:34 AM Comments comments (30)
Quite often I’m asked how does hypnosis work? How do I get inside other people’s minds?
Well the thing is, I don’t “get inside your mind”. What I do is open up a way for me to speak directly with….your unconscious….mind. So, don’t worry, I’m not going to go in and take control of your mind. I’m just going to speak directly to your unconscious mind to help you access more of your inner resources.
Regardless of the context, be it a show, workshop, therapy or even a covert hypnosis session, my intent is for you to benefit. And believe me, having a positive intent for you is a success a successful hypnotic experience.
Then your next question is how do I open the door to your subconscious mind? Simple, when you know how. The first port of call is gaining rapport. If you don’t have rapport then the journey won’t even start.
Next, we have to bypass your critical conscious factor. There are different contexts as mentioned above so let’s take my favourite, the rapid induction. You can follow this in more detail in my free e book “Street Hypnosis Downunder” which you can find on my website
The principle that you will see demonstrated is a momentary diversion like the gentle finger tap on the back of the head followed by a command. In that moment or two after the tap that’s when the door to you unconscious mind is open just long enough to prompt it to respond. To my command.
after that, then we get into the hypnotic fun.
hope that was of interest and benefit to you in response to your requests for More information.

Are you rigid or flexible?

Posted on March 14, 2013 at 2:59 AM Comments comments (21)
Hi folks,
This is an interesting insight today. One of my teachers used to say to me - utilise the client's trance - be flexible. What he means is to start working with people where they are. When someone comes to see a hypnotist/NLPer for some tranceformation work or to see a show they bring with them not only their map of the world. They also bring with them whatever they are experiencing that day, that moment, when they step/sit in front of you.
Last Friday night's show at Ettalong Bowling Club was no exception. There was about 50 people in the room. Mixed ages. Maybe 1/3 above age 50. And being in a club environment, some people had already had a few drinks before they came in from other parts of the club. A typical club crowd.
When I do my preparations for a show, a workshop or therapy session I run through the event in my mind, I write the steps/processes/inductions, and in the case of a show, I also rehearse. Remember the 5Ps? Proper planning prevents poor performance. For this show I had done my preparation PLUS allowed for my inductions to be flexible. There are so many inductions to use and its easy to become comfortable with a few. Yet, having been caught by my own fixed approach in a previous show, I stepped up a bit in my preparation by allowing for flexibility.
And so, as it turned out, I was able to adapt to different volunteers. Some people responded to the suggestability tests quite well and the others I dismissed from the stage. Then, at the inductions, some responded well to instant inductions and then others responded well to an Elman type induction. Then the show went along at a great pace. With audience and volunteers having a great time.
The lesson? Be prepared, be flexible and adaptable, BE the hypnotist!
Hope that sharing my experience was helpful for you. Have a fantastic day, where ever you are, what ever time it is for you read these words...sitting in your can be happy...knowing that your understanding of hypnosis grows.
Take care,
Wayne :)

What's a hypnotic gift?

Posted on March 1, 2013 at 6:00 PM Comments comments (15)
What's a hypnotic gift? That's a question I'm often asked when I explain how I finish off one of my comedy hypnosis shows, street hypnosis demonstrations or "Power Of The  Mind" presentations.
The key to every show, demonstration or talk is the volunteers that are participating. Without the volunteers there is no show. So, for me, it's important to express my appreciation for their trust and support. And that's a big thing for someone to come up out of the crowd, onto the stage and trust me as the hypnotists or speaker.
There is often a fear that people who volunteer will be made to cluck like a chicken or be made to do something that will humiliate them. Sadly, that's a hangover from an older vaudeville style of stage performer.In fact, when I introduce myself as a hypnotist people often hold up their hands and say things like "don't look into my eyes" or "don't make me cluck like a chicken".
Humiliation is not my style. For me, the goals for my shows are to entertain and amaze the audience, giving them a great comedy hypnosis show experience so that they leave the show in awe and wonder of the Power Of The Mind. My desired outcome for the volunteers is that they enjoy the experience of being in the show, they learn to relax, they become "unstuck" and they leave with that hypnotic gift.
So, what's the hypnotic gift? It is the ability to be able to "go inside", tap into the connection with their subconscious mind and find that one resource they desire. What resource is that? It may be greater confidence in an area of life that they have been looking for, better ability to focus and study, higher self esteem or one of any number of things we desire to get in touch with.
Once they locate that resource whilst in trance, I then create with them an "anchor". They are then given instructions to be able to trigger that anchor whenever they desire or need that resource.
When they leave my show, demonstration or speech they do so with a gift and a sense that they are better equipped for life than when they came in.
That's my hypnotic gift and the how & why I do it. I love to learn and grow and help others to the same.
Love and peace to you until next time.
Wayne :)

To ..go into need to learn to ...go into trance....

Posted on February 21, 2013 at 9:52 PM Comments comments (84)
If you've been reading my blogs you may have noticed that I do hypnosis shows as well as "change" or "transformation work". I've heard some people say that one takes away from the other BUT I find the opposite. That doing personal change work complements the show work.  Makes for a more diverse and equipped professional.
In fact I did a show last night at The King St Brewhouse in Darling Harbour, Sydney. One of the questions I was asked a lot after the show last night was this - Why is it that some people seem to go into that hypnotic state called trance more easily than others?
How I respond to the question goes like this - I refer to a famous hypnotist from last century called Milton Erickson. He said that the go into trance...the go into trance.
Much like going to the gym. The more you do it, the easier it is to do. Or anything that we do in life, isnt that true.
Much of this relates to our patterns of thinking. We repeat things often, they become a habit and we don't even think about it. Many people last night referred to stress in their lives. This can become a habit. What I suggest we do is to practice relaxation so that we can learn to relax more easily, stress less and enjoy life more.
So that you can start to practice this I'd love to share with you a recording that I made and use regularly to ...relax deeply.
My gift to you. All you have to it!

If you like it let me know. And want to...find a way to ...quit smoking,...lose weight ...remove a phobia..i can assist you or your friends with a suitable recording or treatment session to achieve your goals easily and effortlessly.
Learn to relax and...go into trance...Have a great weekend.

Manifesting reality - see the movie Ruby Sparks

Posted on February 14, 2013 at 3:20 PM Comments comments (14)
The world is exactly what we think it is ….and the way we think about it creates our world. If you’re familiar with the concept of manifesting or co-creation then you may resonate with what I’m about to share.

Depending upon what you believe… experience the world through your five senses according to your belief systems. Fascinating to observe when working with clients or with hypnosis show volunteers. For example, in a show I may tell volunteers to believe that the number two does not exist. With this new belief they create that reality – ie two does not exist. That continues with things like – being stuck to a chair, not remembering names, feeling different emotions.

Similarly, in a client situation, hypnosis and NLP can be used to change belief systems and hence the way that the client thinks. Think differently, act differently and get different results. Think of people becoming non smokers, losing weight, becoming more confident etc.

One process to used to do that is the “what if” or movie” technique. In this process the client is lead to create the ideal outcome in all its aspects – sight, sound, feelings, taste and smell. First with a picture, then enhancing each aspect, making the picture three D, turning it into a movie. After perfecting the movie the client is then asked to step into their character in the movie and live it as if it is their reality. This is repeated and “anchored” in so that they can access it any time. The client then manifests this new reality.

I did hear feedback that this is faking it. My answer to that is this – everyone one of us does this each day with our imagination. We imagine that something is going to happen – good or bad – when we feel it with great emotion we tend to move towards vreating that reality.

Now, where does Ruby Sparks fit in with all of this? The story goes along these lines. A young man writes out his one page story of a love affair with a beautiful young woman called Ruby. Absolutely fictitious. Then, she appears in his life, just as he wrote down. During the movie he learns that whatever he writes down and believes tends to occur. He wrote down that she spoke fluent French and hey presto – she speaks fluent french.

Do you feel a bit playful today? Think of something that you would love to have in your life. Create that movie “as if” it is your reality. Step into the movie and live it. Play that movie over and over again. Write down the story. Bring all the positive emotions into this that you can.

Just like putting the cake into the oven or planting seeds in the ground – when the appropriate baking time or growing time has occurred you will have your result.

Have a brilliant day wherever you are.


What happened to your 2013 New Year Resolutions?

Posted on February 3, 2013 at 12:12 AM Comments comments (13)
It's now February. One month of 2013 has slipped on by. For many, many people, their New Year resolutions have also slipped past. Did it happen to you?

What were your resolutions? Did you act on them? Or not?

Some of the issues with keeping the resolutions are lack of - motivation, clarity and action.

Motivation - If you're not creating this change for YOU (ie doing it for someone else) then you're less likely to succeed.

Clarity - no one will get to where they want to be or have want they want to have unless you are crystal clear on what you want to be, have or do.

Action - if your resolution is not backed up by a plan which is the implemented, well, were kidding yourself with the New Year Resolutions.

To help you get some more understanding on this and also for you to learn some NLP and hypnosis techniques to get back on track with your New Year resolutions i invite you to...join me on this webinar where I'll be sharing some very cool stuff with you.

That's all for today. Enjoy your weekend. And I look forward to sharing with you at the webinar. You can...register here here

Why not have a hypnosis party?

Posted on November 25, 2012 at 2:01 AM Comments comments (35)
Last night we went to a 70s party. Dress up in 70s fashion , listen to 70's music and dance 70's dances. It was a lot of fun.
And as you do when at parties, someone asked me what do I do? Just the opportunity I needed. My reply - I give people fun, laughter and a great night out at my comedy hypnosis shows"
Well that created a few questions and before you know it I was performing some impromptu demonstrations.From basic suggestability tests through to amnesia for identity and then amnesia for all the people they know at the party. Of course I brought all that back to them before I left.
It was interesting to watch the 5 or 6 people around the table participating with me. Even more interesting was that 20 to 30 people gathered around to watch. So many questions. It was a great opportunity to increase hypnotic awareness.
The night was filled with hypnotic fun and laughter.

Have a wonderfully hypnotic week and practise hypnosis every day.

To your hypnotic success
