Common Sense and Hypnosis

I love that quote. Everyone I work with wants to do common sense things that should be easy to do. They want to stop smoking, eat right, control anxiety, focus on important areas of life and avoid distractions.  All of these things are just common sense.

  • It’s common sense to not smoke tobacco.
  • It’s common sense to eat healthy foods.
  • It’s common sense to get physical activity.
  • It’s common sense that speaking to groups of people should be easy.

These things should be easy … but they are not.  If gaining this level of control were easy people wouldn’t need a hypnotist.  A lot of people will explain that they “can’t get our of my own way.”

Hypnosis is designed to create the “ideal conditions” where doing the commons sense things are simple, easy and automatic.

People wonder what the experience of hypnosis is like to make such a dramatic, and common sense, change.  I remind people that it’s all about directing the attention to the right things. The hypnotist is the tour guide, your job is to do the “heavy lifting” by simply following the hypnotists instruction. Most of the time the feeling you get in hypnosis is so positive and pleasant it’s amazing. A lot of people feel so dramatically better they’re smiling and laughing at the end of the session.  Yes, it’s an “ideal condition” for being able to do what is just common sense.

Hypnotizing People In Airports


The name tag I wore while traveling.

The title “Hypnotizing People In Airports” isn’t about how facinating airport traveler are.

It’s about how I do hypnosis on people IN AN AIRPORT!

As I was traveling over the holidays I decided to wear my name tag that says “My Name Is David. I’ll be your HYPNOTIST”. It was a social experiment just to see how people would react.

On a layover in Detroit I went to the Coney Island burger joint to eat. The waitress, Monica, asked about my name tag and immediately wanted to know if I could help her become a non-smoker.

That was all I needed.

In about 15 minutes she quite easily proclaimed herself a non-smoker.

Monica even reviewed me on!
Here’s the link.

I did this all for free… in the spirit of giving!!!!

I’m Wishing you a WONDERFUL 2016!

PS, I don’t know how to contact Monical so if you happen to know Monica, who works at Coney Island restaurant in the Detroit airport, tell her I said hello!

Understanding and overcoming your Fear of flying

Fear of flightFlying is Voluntary

When I am approached by clients with a fear of flying, initially I simply tell them, “that’s simple, don’t fly…  Problem solved, what else can I do for you?  Oh and, don’t worry, except in the case of Con-Air, no one is ever forced on an airplane.”

Of course they quickly respond back that there are strong reasons which compel them to fly despite the discomfort.  Those reasons might include work, the desire to go on vacation or visit family in destinations not easily reached without air travel, etc.

Defeating F.E.A.R. (False Expectations Appearing Real) Be Free!

Without knowing it, by self-assessing the benefit that comes from flying to be more important than the fear, the person has already begun the process of re-gaining control.   Our little exchange has caused them to become aware of feelings that are keeping them from enjoying life, which includes flying comfortably.  They realize they want to fly because flying would provide a person important benefits.

By simply seeking help for the issue which makes them feel out of control, they have made a baby-step in the direction of being able to fly comfortably.  In essence they have said, “OK, I’ve been living with this F.E.A.R. (False Expectations Appearing Real) but I’m not taking it anymore, I want those benefits!”

How a Hypnotist Can Help

By consulting a Hypnotist for worries and concerns or dreads, such the fearful flying experience, you are selecting a professional who has spent much time studying how to help a person let go of such self-limiting beliefs. After using hypnosis, evaluating the risk involving flying correctly and appropriately becomes as easy as one would evaluate the risk of being driven in a car.

Without hypnosis the apprehensions remain even though the person would not have difficulty being driven in new stretch limousine by a highly trained professional driver.  A much more risky activity statistically, I might add.

How Your Mind Learns and Holds on to Patterns – A Demonstration

To show in a practical way, how our subconscious mind locks onto patterns and habits, let me ask you to clasp your hands together.  Notice the position of your thumbs.  You may put your left thumb over the right or vice-versa.  This would be an example of a habit which does not really matter as there is no right or wrong way.  You probably learned that way of doing it as a baby and relate to the happy feeling of that experience.  Switch your hands around and do it the other way and it “just feels wrong. ”   No amount of conscious effort on your part will change that “wrong feeling. ”

Regain Control Today, Fly Fearlessly!
