Podcast #60: Foreign accents, strange warts and hypnotizing crazy people

Brain Software hypnosis podcastWelcome to Episode 60 of Brain Software with Mike Mandel and Chris Thompson! We’re back again and we’re thrilled to be here. If you want to learn hypnosis online make sure you check out the Mike Mandel Hypnosis Academy

Here are the show notes for this episode:

  • We had to completely scrap our first recording of this podcast. We had technical problems and we thought the end result was crap. Sorry for the delay!.
  • Chris pointed out that whenever someone says “To tell you the truth” it presupposes that they’ve been lying to you prior to that point. It’s filler language. Avoid it.
  • Mike challenges everyone to create massive confusion at the Drive Thru! We call this the non-identifiable foreign accent joke, otherwise known as “Lemon Cobra”.
  • Mike and Chris discuss another great gag called “Tag team intentional misunderstanding.” Have fun with this one because, when done right, it’s brilliantly funny.
  • Jack emailed us with a half-joking (but still serious) question about hypnosis involving Batman, the Joker and crazy people. Mike reminds us all that hypnosis isn’t about the hypnotist exerting his or her will on someone else. Chris brings up the importance of rapport.
  • Mike explains the difference between expressive vs. receptive aphasia and how it matters to a hypnotist (or subject!)
  • Can you eliminate warts using self hypnosis?
  • Wendy asked a question pertaining to our Power Induction course. Can you inductions that make use of catalepsy for someone who is lying down?
  • How do you go about making someone else feel like they are the most important person in the room?
  • How can mats on the stage floor screw up a stage hypnosis show?
  • The November 2015 Architecture of Hypnosis class has only a few spots left (9 as of the recording date)
  • Clearly Mike and Chris should not take their singing act on the road. Ever.

Closing Metaphor: Fuller’s Restaurant.
