Last Friday, I posted about one of my most embarrassing trance interruptions. This one is worse. Especially since I was unaware about what happened, when it happened.
People often think hypnosis isn’t working on them, because they don’t feel any different. They just feel a little relaxed. As you shall see, a little relaxation can go a long way.
One day, I was watching a machine trance. Well, okay, I was watching three trances, chained together, for around two hours. I do that sometimes. I’m a hypnoslut…
While watching, I didn’t feel like I was very deep. My mind wandered several times, and I had to remember to focus back on the trance. But still, it was enjoyable, I felt good by the end of it. Nothing too special, just nice. Then when I got up and looked around, I noticed the door into the room was open.
“That was odd,” I thought. “I’m sure I closed that.”
Later that day, my dad looked a bit embarrassed, and told me that he had gone out to do some shopping, and had come in to ask me if I wanted anything. He had actually touched my shoulder, given me a gentle shake, but – “There was a big spiral thing on your screen, and you seemed to be asleep or hypnotised or something, so I left.”
I was speechless.
I was also alarmed. For at least part of the time, one of the images on the spiral was.. um.. this:
Just to recap. he had walked into the room (my door makes a big creaking sound), shook me, asked me some things, and then left. And I remained deep in trance, completely oblivious.
And after that, I had thought, “This was a fun trance, but I didn’t go that deep.”
Hypnosis is an amazing and mysterious thing. You should never try to judge how deep you are by how deep you feel. What depth is, is an open question. Some people feel high and light, rather than deep and heavy. Other people don’t feel any different at all.
I have sometimes felt really deep, but been woken by a tiny distraction. And at other times, I have felt completely awake, but found myself responding to suggestions that wouldn’t normally effect me. This was clearly one of the latter…
Do you have any fun hypnosis stories?
