For those who have difficulty being hypnotized and who would like some help, there is a free group at www.hypnothoughts.com entitled, "Hard to Hypnotize?" which is specifically for those who have difficulty being hypnotized. whose leader, widely-respected hypnotist, +John Cleesattel, makes the unconditional promise: "If you have tried many times and still have had no success, contact me and together we can make it happen." +Michael Ellner also makes the following excellent suggestions:
Try warming you hand with a hair dryer and then try to mentally recreate the sensation. Next bite into a slice of a lemon and then try to mentally recreate the taste of the lemon. Keep at it until you can easily warm your hands and taste the lemon by just thinking about it. Next work on sensing a tingling in your finger tips when you can do this move the sensation into your hands. These simple exercises should be a gateway to learning how to create sensations by just thinking about it.
