How many times a week to do Hypnosis?

Question: “How many times a week is an optimal time to practice hypnosis, and how do I get people to volunteer to be hypnotized?”

My reply:

As much as possible!

AND, only as much as you have fun with it.

Here are 7 guidelines to follow for getting people to volunteer:

  1. Don’t practice overt trance with your family. Go practice with
    strangers, or light acquaintances.
  2. Always match people’s expectations. Develop your approach
    and practice walking up.
  3. Reframe. Hypnotists get paid anywhere between $100
    and $3000 an hour (these are real and typical rates
    for some people), and probably more. You are
    PROVIDING A SERVICE. Don’t waste your time talking
    someone into something. If you have to SELL,
    you’re already in trouble.
  4. Get commitment and consistency from people FAST. You want
    them to commit to you showing them something, or to them
    staying in the same spot for 2-3 minutes.
  5. Talk to them about how comfortable people feel when they’re in
    hypnosis, and how it opens up an entire world of possibilities.
  6. Get the right venue. Organized venues with too much corporate
    control are not the best. I.e. don’t try to do too much hypnosis
    in the grocery store, although Walmart might work because
    nobody is minding the individual isles.

    Walking outside is perfect. Going into bars to do hypnosis can
    be hit or miss. I don’t recommend malls because of their many
    rules, plus rent-a-cops. Go to venues that make sense, like a
    gentle dialog at a coffee shop.

  7. Fake it until you make it. Every hypnotist has had something
    not work. Get over it. It’s what you do next that matters.

Thanks for the question.
