Jimmy Graham aka Hypnotist JimmyG is a 30+ year entertainment professional who specializes in providing entertainment for corporate events, AGM banquettes, staff appreciation events, company holiday parties and more.
In fact, they are so memorable that people who have seen one as long as 20 years ago, will still remember how much fun it was to watch other people becoming hypnotized under a hypnotist's spell and doing funny things.
With that begin said, most people today still think that comedy hypnosis shows are faked.
That somehow, the hypnotist has either paid the hypnosis volunteers to do these funny things or that he brings them in by bus and has them act their way thru his or her hypnotist show.
Well, nothing could be further from the truth!
Hypnosis is a natural phenomina that each of us experience every single day and automatically when we go to bed at night.
It's called daydreaming or trance.
And all the hypnotist has to do is lead willing volunteers back into that natural state and they go into hypnosis.
So if you wonder if comedy hypnosis shows are real, it's time to set the record straight.
1ST COMEDY HYPNOSIS SHOW FACT
Some people think that the Hypnotist hires people to play along with his suggestions. Here's what would have to happen to pull that off.
The hypnotist would have to hire 10-20 people to be in his hypnotist show every night.
Even at $50 per person, that cost him $500-1000 dollars every night for wanna be actors to play along in his little hypnosis skits.
Also consider that if he had 10-20 friends to help him out at every show, he would still have to drive them from town to town, feed them and provide accommodations for everyone.
2nd Comedy Hypnosis Show Fact
When you see a comedy stage hypnotist show, you will notice that 10 to 20 people will be asked to volunteer to be in the show.
The comedy hypnotist may do a mindgame test to see who will make the best subjects.
Once this takes place, you may notice that some people refuse to participate which is fine.
Any stage hypnotist who knows what he's doing doesn't want resistant people anyway. The hypnotist will be looking for people who are genuinely interested in expereincing the phenomina of hypnosis in a comedy stage show setting.
So doesn't it make sense to realize that if everyone was "faking it", they would play along with this part of the hypnosis show too?
3rd Comedy Hypnosis Show Fact
During the show, people will slump in their chairs when the stage hypnotist says "SLEEP!"
Grown women and men are naturally reserved when it comes to physical contact in public, and especially at company Christmas party entertainment event, yet you may see them peacefully leaning up against one an other and resting their heads on the shoulder of someone beside them.
I doubt they would do this naturally for a whole 60 minute comedy hypnotist show if they weren't hypnotitzed.
4th Comedy Hypnosis Show Fact
Imagine if you were at a hypnosis show and suddenly, your meek, shy friend, neighbor or family member suddenly started flying around the stage like a super hero and saving audience members from evil villians.
Or maybe a group of people you know suddenly lost thier butts at the snap of the hypnotist's finger and could no longer sit down on their chairs.
Can you explain that?
5th Comedy Hypnosis Show Fact
Some of the top professional comedy hypnotists do what is known in the stage hypnosis show industry as a "post hypnotic suggestion"
What this means is that before the hypnotist wakes his hypnosis volunteers, he will give them a suggestion to do AFTER they are awake.
For instance, the hypnotist may say, after you awaken, if you hear someone say "Peanut Butter", you'll clap your hands 3 times and yell out "Jam".
The is proof positive that the comedy hypnosis show is real because the show is already over so there is no longer any requirement for anyone to keep "faking it". :-)

Self improvement using hypnosis is usually thought of as a person listening to a digital audio program, mp3, or other type of personal developemnt media, which helps the listener to relax and open up to receive suggestions centered around a specific topic such as increasing your income, dating confidence, weight loss, stop smoking, etc.
Audio hypnosis programs are a great way for you to start experiencing hypnosis and improving your life to become better since you simply listen to them either while you sleep or when you relax
How do you incorporate hypnosis into your self improvement practice?
To be successful with self improvement hypnosis programs, there are certain aspects that should be addressed.
The best hypnosis program you could use for self improvement would be one you create yourself because your would be able to address the exact deeply personal issues that may be sabotaging your personal development.
Unlike general topic audio hypnosis programs, this hypnosis session would be made for the exact personal issue you want to address, including the precise words and phrases that mean the most to you so a "perfect" self hypnosis progam would have to be crafted by the person using it to suit his or her own needs.
This would entail buying recording software, a microphone, learning basic audio enginering and then writing out and recording each hypnosis program script.... And THAT'S A LOT OF WORK!
With that being said, you still can easily use the DIY method (Do It Yourself) because everytime you relax, you go into a hypnotic trance state.
Below is a quick process for using hypnosis for self improvement.
1. Write down in a positive statement ONE GOAL you want to achieve.
EXAMPLE - "I wake up everyday at 6am refreshed, energized and excited to start my day"
2. Find a quiet place to sit and be alone so you can relax without interruption AND TURN OFF ALL DEVICES (phone, computer, tv, radio, etc)
3. Make sure you are sitting NOT lying down (you may fall asleep). Take 3 deep breaths in thru nose and exhale thru your mouth. On the 3rd exhalation, close your eyes.
4. Begin repeating your statement. EXAMPLE - "I wake up everyday at 6am refreshed, energized and excited to start my day". See yourself doing it, feeling it, touching it, smelling it, hearing it.
5. Continue imagining actually expereincing what you want for at least 3-5 minutes. Then take 3 deep breaths in thru your nose and out thru your mouth while smiling and feeling proud of honoring yourself with this incredible gift of using hypnosis for self improvement.
Finally, make a promise to yourself to put the practice of self hypnosis into your daily life and schedule it daily. By doing this, it will become an automatic habit for you.

The answer is to make it unique, interactive, fun and exciting with outstanding and memorable entertainment!
Many event planners are concerned about the venue, the food, the decorations and timing. Unfortunately choosing the entertainment is sometimes left until the end of the planning process.
By this time, most of the event budget has been used up and they are forced to hire entertainment with the small funds that remain.
As a result, the only options left become the local DJ, comedian, juggler or kids magician which may not provide their guests with the amazingly memorable experience you were hoping for.
With low budget entertainment, they may also worry that the material covered by the comedian will not be corporate friendly, the magician will be doing kids birthday party tricks and making bad jokes, or the juggler who claims that their flame throwing baton act is completely safe, really isn't.
This may be due to a previous experience with an unprofessional performer or a horror story from a colleague.
But by planning in advance and dedicating a 25-50% portion of your entire event budget towards entertainment in advance first, you will be able to secure an act that adds tremendous value to your event and who makes it a fun, memorable, positive experience for everyone.
The right corporate entertainer will get your group involved with shared laughter and shared experiences that can create team unity.
And possibly more important, hiring a professional entertainer who also motivates and inspires your guests can help you relay your event's message to your group.
So what should you look for when hiring a professional entertainer?
1. The entertainment should be "corporate friendly". This means that the performance should be clean language, non-embarrasing, and G-PG rated depending on the event planner's requests.
2. Guests should not be put on the spot or humiliated in any way, shape or form.
3. It should be interactive. Shared laughter is a wonderful bonding experience. It creates commaraderie, strengthens freindships and promotes deeper trust.
4. The entertainment you hire should be unique and interactive. Events lose their appeal when they feature the "same thing as last year". Search to bring your audience something that is new and that they will be excited to see.
By using these 4 event planning tips, you can make your next event a memorable experience that not only succeeds in entertaining your audience, but can also drive home your company message and objectives which creates a great double return on your investment!

Working with hypnosis as a Hypnotist and a MindPower Programs coach is very rewarding as I get the privilege of helping people understand how their thoughts create their reality and work with people who want to achieve better results in their lives.
In fact there is never really a day that I get out of bed and think ‘oh no – another boring day at work’ as each and every day brings many more new hypnosis clients and many more new challenges that always keeps me on my toes.
Many people also find my job fascinating and I am never short of anything to say when I am with friends or meeting new people as that age old question always rises about what I do!
Actually someone asked me the other night – ‘That hypnosis thing? Does it really work?’ I always laugh and say ‘of course not, don’t be so ridiculous!’
Of course I'm joking with them but it still amazes me that people still don’t actually believe that Hypnosis can work.
To put it simply, hypnosis is simply the act of giving, receiving and most importantly, accepting suggestions.
For instance... imagine me saying this to you,
"I'm hungry, do you feel hungry too?"
A second ago, you may not not have had any feelings of hunger but once I suggested it, you may now suddenly feel a desire to eat.
If you now feel like eating, you just experienced hypnosis!
I gave you a suggestion. You received the suggestion. Then you accepted the suggestion and a result (feeling hungry) was achieved.
Still skeptical? Are you one of these people that still believes that it can't be that easy?
Well if you are, then it might be time that you woke up to the fact that your being hypnotized all the time.
Every time you watch TV, listen to the radio, read a book, listen to speaker or even your own self talk you are being hypnotized.
Hypnosis is going on all around you so you may want to start paying attention to how your being hypnotized and how your inadvertently hypnotizing other people too. Once your aware that hypnosis is always happening, then you can start to use it to improve your life.
Hypnosis can help you get you the life that you want and to help you to attain the things that you want to have.
One question I always ask my clients is ‘what would you achieve if nothing was impossible?’
The reason that I ask this is because as we grow into adulthood we stop using our ability to set high ambitions like we did as kids and we start to create limitations and reasons why we cant achieve certain things.
We actually begin to decide whether something is impossible or not – that’s right we actually set the limit on what is impossible!
As I said – Hypnosis is a viable option to achieve your goals.
So I want to ask you the question - what would you achieve if nothing was impossible?
Would you quit smoking, lose weight, get more confidence, make more money, improve your relationship or release that stress?
These are all things that people regularly use Hypnosis for.
The bottom line: MindPower Mastery Coaching with Hypnosis works!
