Before that, you are probably wondering what is an arm levitation in the first place!
First of all, when we go into hypnosis, our minds are open to suggestions
Please note that a suggestion is a suggestion and can be rejected!
And sometimes, the clients or participants in a workshop need to experience for themselves an hypnosis experience
And the arm levitation is a great hypnosis technique for fun and laughter and an undeniable experience of hypnosis
The hypnotist will suggest for an arm to feel lighter and start to go up by itself
From there, things can go in various directions
You might experience a slow start to an arm levitation, or you might experience a quick start
You might see your arm float up and away, or just hover a couple inches from its original position
Your arm might levitate to touch you on the face, or move to the side
Some go into a complete hypnotic trance, while others are in a seemingly partial trance
It’s really fun! 😀
Watch this video of an arm levitation in a cafe where the demo subject can still drink tea while under hypnosis!
So how does it work?
The hypnotist’s suggest for the arm to go lighter and the unconscious mind of the subject receives the suggestion
Then the unconscious mind will carry the suggestion out, as long as its not violating a person’s ethics and values
And n this case, the arm will start to levitate by itself
This is something called an ideomotor response
Experiences can vary though
Some will experience as if tiny nerves are being triggered and move by themselves (ideomotor response)
Others will say they are just following the suggestion and allowing it to happen (as if they are still in control)
Which is perfectly fine too
Just calmly have a cup of tea will do 🙂
