Hypnotism (Post 1)

Hypnosis is a topic that has always been of interest to me throughout my life. The idea of being able to connect with past lives has always been one of interest to me. In order to do so, the goal of the hypnotist is to get the individual into a state of mind that is easily guidable and malleable. During this, the hypnotist will push the individual towards recalling certain events that may have happened to them in a past life, and ultimately confront those traumas that may have passed over into their present. At first I used to see hypnotist as 100% fact, since I could not find any immediate answer to it, and my lack of exposure to hypnotism enforced this. As I have seen more and more examples of hypnotism, and even seen hypnotist “shows”, I have come to the understanding that the hypnotist does this guiding to pull an answer, especially in the shows. Every year, Stockton has a hypnotism show for freshman students, and I have become more and more aware of it. Interestingly enough, the hypnotist also refers to himself as a comedian too!


  1. I have seen one done to someone before and it was so funny! While reading this, I found myself agreeing with you. Thank you for sharing!

  2. Hello David, I do also agree with you! I have watched a show done at the university I transferred from and it was hilarious but I do feel like it is mostly done for comedy. I feel like things are pretty general so everyone does the same thing and makes people laugh. Although, I do not think they can connect with past lives in my opinion and it is something they trick people into thinking for show.
