The very first stage hypnosis shows can be traced back to Paris in 1813 where the scientist Abbe Faria began performing hypnosis for entertainment purposes. Stage hypnosis shows have since come a very long way and still continue to captivate audiences around the world. While a small population of people may still view stage hypnosis as controversial, there are truly many positive benefits gained by participating in a stage hypnosis show!
The most significant benefit of participating in a stage hypnosis show is that it is by far, one of the most unique and unforgettable experiences you may ever have. Not many people get to experience being professionally hypnotized, let alone in front of a live audience! Freeing, exciting and exhilarating are some of the words I've had people use to describe this experience after a show. Being a part of a stage hypnosis show can also create lasting memories and provide a sense of accomplishment that will last a lifetime!
Another benefit of participating in a stage hypnosis show is that it can be a great way to overcome fear and anxiety! Many people are afraid of public speaking, or performing in front of others. Due to the deep relaxation and good feelings people experience when hypnotized, many people find it easier to face these fears in a safe and controlled environment. Coupled with positive suggestions from the hypnotist even the most shy wall-flowers can become confident and outgoing on stage! I've lost count of the times I have heard from friends and family members of people who have participated, that they couldn't believe they were watching the same person! Once experienced, those feelings of relaxation and confidence tend to show up in other areas of their lives. After all, you cannot unlearn experiences.
Speaking of friends and family, participating in a stage hypnosis show can also be a fun and entertaining way to socialize with those people. The shared experience of being hypnotized, or watching others being hypnotized, creates a sense of camaraderie and bonding among both participants and the audience. Additionally, watching the show as an audience member can be just as entertaining and enjoyable as being a participant (although without all the benefits)!
Mental Health Benefits-
Apart from the social value, taking part in a stage hypnosis show can bring about some positive effects on an individual's mental health. The state of hypnosis is known to alleviate stress and anxiety levels, and it could even aid in easing symptoms of depression. While it's essential to remember that hypnosis stage shows are purely for entertainment purposes and should not be used as a substitute for hypnotherapy, the hypnotic state itself can produce a natural sense of relaxation and composure. Therefore, just experiencing hypnosis could assist in attaining a state of balance and inner peace, resulting in overall improvement of one's well-being.
Creative Benefits -
Participating in a stage hypnosis shows can also provide a unique outlet for self-expression and creativity. Through hypnosis, individuals can tap into their powerful mind and access areas of unlimited imagination and creativity! This can be particularly valuable for artists and performers seeking inspiration and new ideas. Just the experience itself may clear blocks to fresh perspectives and unleash a wave of creativity!
Supportive Benefits -
Finally, participating in a stage hypnosis show is a fantastic way to support and promote the vast benefits and effectiveness of hypnosis in general. Despite hypnosis being around for over 4 millenia, it is still not widely accepted or even understood by the majority of people. By participating in a stage hypnosis show, participants can help demystify hypnosis by showing and telling others that it is truly a fun and beneficial form of entertainment!
In conclusion, I hope you can agree that there are many positive benefits of participating in a stage hypnosis show for entertainment purposes. From creating lasting memories to overcoming fears and anxiety, hypnosis can be a transformative and life-changing experience for those in attendance. A true gift of entertainment that continues to give long after the show is over.
