Favorite hypnotic experience as a subject?
This is a hard question to answer, mainly because of my very limited experience as a hypnotic subject.
It was over twenty years between the two times I mentioned in Day 1 and the next time I was hypnotized, which was at a convention I attended. It was then a few more years before I was contracted to record and produce instructional videos for Gisella Zukausky, a local hypnotherapist, who discovered I was a very good demonstration subject. Even to this day, I can probably count the number of times I was ever hypnotized using every finger and only most my toes.
So, with that limited selection to work from, the one that constantly comes to mind was when Gisella used me to demonstrate the Edsaile State. I remember the induction quite clearly, and also my surprise when she demonstrated body catalepsy by holding up my arm and it stayed in place. On an intellectual level, I understood that was the expected response but I wasn’t quite convinced that was going to happen until it actually did.
However, I am hoping to go beyond that in the future.
