If you’re like most people, you may think you can’t be hypnotized. Even I was one of those people until not too long ago.
What I have learned since is that just about everyone can be hypnotized.
But as you may have suspected, some people are more prone to be hypnotized than others.
What you may not have suspected, though, is that more intelligent people are more likely to go into hypnosis deeper and faster!
Watch this quick video for a test to see just how “Hypnotizable” you are!!
Prefer to read than watch the video?
It can work that way too!!
So here’s the written test.
As you’re reading, do your best to follow the instructions and really form the pictures in your mind.
Imagine a lemon.
Make this lemon the most perfect lemon you have ever seen.
The lemon is the perfect color of yellow.
Imagine that you can see the lemon in great detail. You can see the pores in the skin of the lemon. You can see where the stem attaches. You can see the waxiness of the rind and see how the light is reflected from the parts of the lemon.
Imagine the lemon is so real that you could reach out and touch it. When it seems that real, reach out and grasp the lemon with your hand.
Notice that it feels cool to the touch.
You can feel the texture of the skin against your fingers and as you bring the lemon closer to you, you begin to catch a hint of the wonderful fresh scent it has.
Imagine placing the lemon on a cutting board on the counter in front of you.
Picture yourself picking up a knife and slicing the lemon in half. Watch as the blade cuts into the lemon, releasing a spray of juice into the air. The air is filled with the scent of fresh lemon. Take a moment now, close your eyes and imagine the scene. Visualize the sliced lemon, remember the sound it made as the knife sliced through the thick skin and into the middle of the lemon, releasing the juice into the air. With your eyes closed, recall that first burst of lemon scent as it entered your nose. So vivid you could almost taste it. When you have seen that in your mind, open your eyes.
Now, take the knife and make a second cut, creating a lemon wedge. Notice how the juice flows out. Notice that again you could see the spray, hear the sound and smell the fresh lemon as you cut into it.
Imagine picking up that lemon wedge.
Feel as the juice runs down your fingers. Notice how the scent becomes stronger as you bring the wedge closer to your face. Look closely at the perfect yellow of the inside of the lemon.
Place the lemon wedge in your mouth and bite down.
Feel as the juice washes over your tongue.
Notice the bitter, sweet, sour taste as the juice fills your mouth. Feel as you swallow the juice.
Ok, now open your eyes.
So, did your mouth water? If it did, then you’re a great candidate for hypnosis!!
