Inducing Hypnotic Pain - Is it real?

As I was talking about hypnosis today in the café I had someone approach me and tell me that he doubted hypnosis could be used to induce pain. He said pain like the kind you get when someone says your a douche is not real pain. This is a community challenge for application. How or what you would do with hypnosis to demonstrate this is your challenge. Put yourself in this situation and use apply what you know. Punching the guy in the face is not going to work here. You're goal is to describe what you could do and put those skills to work in a potential application. Don't read any farther until you think this through for yourself and apply your skills to the problem. Good luck!

Alright, here's my answer. I will tell you this was not my most elegant piece of work. This impromptu piece took a minute before I took out a five dollar bill from my wallet. I folded the bill in my hands and unfolded before asking the guy sitting with the one who inspired me to write this challenge about his thoughts. He said he wasn't sure. He didn't know much about hypnosis except for what he had seen in the movies and the comedy show that they both recently attended together. I said perfect and asked him how much he liked the Dentist. Most people do not like visiting their Dentist and if you're a Dentist I appreciate you. I held out the five dollar bill and asked him to hold onto the other corner. I told him to not let go until I do. I asked if he was willing to help me prove a point to his friend. If his friend was right and hypnotic pain isn't real he could keep the money. I told him the moment he took the money the pain would also be his. I asked him if he agreed and of course his friend said, "do it". The guy said sure and I told him all he had to do was resist the hypnosis that had already begun and overcome the pain. I began to talk about going to the dentist and a discomfort that begins even before they accept what's going to happen.

The drill of the Dentist and the splattering sensation of water, just presses the high pitched shrill through a person's teeth, jaw, and head. The sensation is something not easily forgotten. Even thinking about it, muscles tighten, and a person's teeth can grind together. Back and forth movements, and there is a sharp pain and dull aches. You know it's real as you feel yourself shake. (I shake my head as I felt the twitch the guy made through the tautness of the five dollar bill.) This pain has an ache that can spread and intensify. I repeated that he could keep this five dollar bill if he managed to resist continuing to be hypnotized. He looked away and I told him he must keep holding onto the bill until he was ready to accept it. He shut his eyes and started talking to his friend. I could actually see the bill shaking a bit as the guy held onto it. I leaned in close as he began singing a song and talking nonsense to himself or his friend. I whispered to him that my voice would gradually reach him. In spite of anything he tried. As long as he took this bill he will begin to feel very uncomfortable as he realized somethings really wrong here. There will be a developing pain in his jaw. The pain would spiderweb web up into his head, and this hurt will grow and blossom as invisible as a migraine. As it becomes stronger, much harder to ignore, because what he takes now will always be there. Hard to concentrate. Something's off.... Very soon it will become excruciating. It will be unbearable. Worse than everything he's ever known before. As he thinks about crying out for relief he may wonder if I'm still here. Giving this bill back to me is the only way out of this pain. Give this five back to me is your only hope for relief. That pain is concentrated by what is held in his hand right here. Now, I let go of the bill and hold my hands up to the side of my body like I just surrendered with hands in the air. In holding surrender gesture I imagined that the five dollars was hot and painful.

The doubter tells his friend that he can't believe I gave him the five dollars and pulls his friend up. The guy holding the bill didn't move fast as he was being tugged away. I turned back towards the person I was talking with before and shouted "Hey". When the two guys turned to me I smiled and pointed at the guy with the money in his hand. "If you could only see your face. It's gotta hurt." Then I turned away.

The friend pulled him away again and they left. I admit I kept looking at the clock; five minutes, ten minutes, and just when I'm getting ready to get a refill on my coffee the guy comes running back in. "Take it. Please take it. It's fucking real." I asked where his friend was and he tells me he didn't want to come in there. The guy kept holding the five dollars out to me and I admit I was very slow taking it back. When I finally did I two snaps with my fingers and spoke calmly. "Soothing all the pain away with each breathe. Breathe slow and calm. Tell your friend he owes you big." There is a hypnotic moral to this story, and that is demand at least five dollars to take the five dollar bill back. Smile.

When you can connect with someone’s pain and their pleasure, something interesting happens. Your ideas begin to both push and pull them. You start engaging their problems as well as their joy. When we’re stressed, in pain, or feeling an abundance of pleasure, our brains release A LOT of chemicals; endorphin, serotonin, melatonin, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine as your biology is excited by what's happening. And it's not just physical pain but emotional and social discomfort as well that can set this in motion. These chemicals are the biological messengers working through pain AND pleasure so don't ignore them. I'd go so far as to challenge you to become more aware of these moments where we work ourselves up in a unhelpful ways. I hope you've enjoyed this post. I hope to read more about what you would do.
