tl;dr - let's talk about hypnosis! Here's my experience with it:
Well it seems it's been a while since a thread about hypnosis has been up on the site, so I thought I would start one up again.
Has anyone here tried hypnosis? I have a lot of files, and even paid for a few, but I ended up really liking this one on YouTube that actually might have gotten somewhere with me. It was something about wearing and wetting, and maybe some bedwetting. Here's the funny thing, it has to do with forgetting you ever listened to it, and though I remember listening to it, it's as though my mind decides to think about something else or quickly changes subjects in my head. While listening to it, I totally remember hearing it from the last dozen or so times, but after it's over I could actually forget the words the hypnotist said.
It might have helped me be able to do things I wouldn't due to my own mind lock, such as going while laying down and such. I'm not sure everything the hypnotist suggests gets lodged in my brain, but wetting has certainly become much easier while I'm wearing since watching/listening to it.
Whether it actually did anything, it doesn't matter, because I actually had fun with it. It relaxed me for the 15 minutes or so that it goes on for, and I find myself coming back to the video, like a small addiction. I actually enjoyed the voice (even though it is totally computer generated) and loved the feeling of complete relaxation. It's like you're totally awake, but can't feel your limbs. You're just totally in your head, listening only to what they are saying and taking it in, like you've let go of the steering wheel and gas, but the car (your mind and body) is now being controlled by someone else entirely. It's scary but exciting and overall an amazing feeling (to me).
I certainly think it's a mental thing, and if you're not comfortable receiving suggestions it probably won't work. I have an open mind... Psychedelics and other mind altering substances may have helped open my mind up to things like that but I don't condone it, nor would I say that you will have the same results as I did. Heck, it could shut you off to that sort of stuff, just depends on your psyche. I have since stopped all activities like that but the experience I had with it still lingers, and has helped me become more of an open-minded person to hypnosis, among other things.
If anything, I would say it should supplement what you already desire, and maybe push the envelope a little bit, but ultimately has to be something you want to have happen, but maybe your mind and body just don't have the willpower to make happen on its own (if that makes sense).
I have the link to the video I spoke about saved if you guys want it. But idk the rules about this sort of thing, as I haven't read the rules in its entirety.
Edit - I will also say this: repetition was key for the things I was suggested to really sink in.
