Is there a Hypnotized Feeling? Are Children Always In Hypnosis? Does Alpha Brain Waves Equal Hypnosis?

Happy Hypno-Friday everyone! Welcome to the latest free hypnosis training video here on

In this week’s episode of Cal Banyan’s Hypnosis Etc., Elronn and I express our opinions on a few topics that you might consider to be controversial. I believe it’s a healthy discussion, let’s continue that discussion in the comments below!

But, before we get on with the show, I want to congratulate my daughter, Kelsey (a former co-host of Hypnosis, Etc.) and her new husband, Dave! They just got married this last weekend in Chicago. I was there of course, to give the bride away. Here are some photos from that special day.

Here are some of the topics we discuss:

  • Is there a hypnotized feeling?
  • How do you deal with clients who didn’t feel hypnotized?
  • What do you think about the idea that hypnosis causes alpha brain waves?
  • Why are children highly suggestible?

    Just wanted to say congratulations to Kelsey and Dave and to you and Maureen. As Dave (Elman) would say, Mazel Tov! And Kelsey, you look radiant!
    May you have a lasting, lifetime of friendship and love. Your parents are great role models for you.

    •How do you deal with clients who didn’t feel hypnotized?

    A great topic at the right time for me. I just finnished a stage hypnosis training from Jerry Valley . A part of the training involved explaning to the audiance what hypnosis is all about. but it had to be short, simple, and easy to understand . A lot harder than you think . What the client can expect in the state of hypnosis, is a very hard topic too. Just a thought, since the client’s ideas are not formed yet, give them a post hypnotic suggestion of what to think hypnosis is. like you were relaxed, not tired or sleepy, you focused on my voice and sugestions, you were worry free. now that you have told them what to experience . they have an answer and they should be happy for ever after.

    Congratulations Kelsey & Dave and may your love grow deeper….and deeper…as you look each other in the eyes, everyday of your life 🙂

    And thank you Cal & Elronn for another great training video which like all your other videos have always been of tremendous value to all hypnotists.

    Thanks to everyone who sent congratulations to Kelsey and Dave. Right now they are in South Africa on a Photo Safari taking pictures of the wild animals.

    Thanks also to all your comments of gratitude for making these videos. We hope that we can help everyone in the profession with them. We really appreciate when you add to what we talked about.
