I thoroughly enjoyed the DVD of The Secret Hypnosis Trance Inductions of Ormond McGill with plenty of never before seen techniques . . . well, the cover blurb says never before seen but that’s not completely accurate . . . while quite a number of them have not been publicly demonstrated before, a few of them are described in McGill’s incredibly comprehensive The New Encyclopedia of Stage Hypnotism which is pretty much THE classic for those interested in stage hypnosis (therapists and anyone else interested in hypnosis should have it too, it’s that important and that comprehensive).
Of course, reading a brief description of a technique and seeing it demonstrated by one of the living legends of hypnosis is entirely a different thing. McGill has been performing and practicing hypnosis professionally longer than most of the big names and old-timers of the profession have been alive and he’s still going strong and so it is truly a joy and an honor to have the opportunity to see him work his magick in live . . . well taped . . . demonstration.
While I don’t think I will be using the Clock Dial induction anytime soon with clients, it is an interesting approach that I believe can be adapted to some interesting applications. The Pendulum Induction and Hypnotic Spiral techniques are takes on classic processes anyone should know and become proficient with. The Blindfold and Nonverbal techniques are quirky and worthwhile. I’ve seen McGill demonstrate the Ladder of Colors before as a stage induction with a callback to the Force of the Star Wars and it works beautifully. I’ve used it was well with wonderful success. Tying that one in with the Om Mantra Technique seems to be a nobrainer.
I’ve read Tom Silver and Ormond McGill’s description of using Mesmerism or Animal Magnetism in the past and so seeing it demonstrated was nice. I actually had the opportunity to demonstrate the process not long ago as I often teach about the concepts of Mesmerism in graduate courses related to literature. The process described in the McGill DVD is very straightforward and easy to duplicate.
I love material that presents a series of methods and techniques in a straightforward and easily comprehensivle manner. I especially love pieces that have material that is not readily available elsewhere. This is one of those pieces.
While the video had some coloration problems when Ormond asked for the lights to be turned down for his Ladder of Colors, it is clear and the sound is perfectly fine. Certainly the less than Hollywood quality may be distracting to perfectionists but the content is well worth it and far outweighs any technical difficulties in the recording. Besides, the content is what is most important . . . there are no bells and whistles, no slick presentation, no dancing girls, just straightfoward presentation of content and that is most definately of interest . . . besides, it’s Ormond McGill!
This important piece was created in partnership with Tom Silver and you can contact Tom about this and other
