ABCs of Hypnosis: Odd Requests

Anyone who has been a hypnotist more than six months has had at least one odd request. Having been a hypnotist for 13 years, I think I’ve heard it all.

We all get our share of what I like to affectionately refer to as the “pervy” requests. I had the potential client who wanted to re-experience toilet training.

I actually did a session for someone who wanted a custom- CD mailed to her. She wanted to experience a virtual pregnancy from inception until delivery.

Numerous clients have wanted to get “evil” out of their lives. Especially when using regression to cause, I have had clients encounter evil of some sort. For example, a retired dentist who wanted to overcome depression opened a door in his subconscious and saw a devil head sitting on a pedestal. He named the devil head George.

I even had a client who was overwhelmed with guilt at his wife’s suicide. She had made multiple attempts and finally succeeded by throwing herself in an ant bed.

One thing’s for sure, hypnosis keeps you on your toes and helps you learn to think on your feet.
