Dancers Get Hypnotised

The Parisian electro-pop artist Yanis decided to take a unique approach to filming the music video for his hit debut single “Hypnotized”. Instead of the usual rowdy club scenes and random make out sessions often featured in today's music videos, he chose to feature dancers who are under hypnosis. He has been quoted as saying that he made the decision to use hypnotised dancers in his video because when hypnotised “You don't really have complete control.” Yanis believed the idea to be so groundbreaking that he decided to undergo hypnosis for the filming of the video as well. Since its release in April 2015, Yanis' exclusive video for “Hypnotized” has gone viral; as many people are intrigued by the revolutionary idea of hypnosis dancing.

The video itself features Yanis along with a number of voluntary dancers, both men and women, who are hypnotised by a professional hypnotist by the name of Julian Hypnotiseur. The video was directed by Ludovic Zuili. One of the participants is Charlotte Le Bon who previously starred in the Yves Saint Laurent biopic back in 2014. And another was French actor Ruben Alves. Once the music begins to play in the room, you see the bodies of the dancers start to loosen up and start to move to the beat all while their eyes are completely closed. Since individuals seemingly lose sight of all of their inhibitions while under hypnosis, the movements of the dancers are considered authentic and genuine reactions to the beat of the music. Some dancers display tight and controlled dance moves and others appear to get a little more wild and carefree with their dancing, which shows that everyone interprets music differently. This is exactly the result that Yanis was hoping for before filming as he describes the dancing under hypnosis to be somewhere between a celestial dream and reality.

Forget Motivation

When it comes to achieving your goals, most people will likely tell you that motivation is the key. But unfortunately motivation is short lived. That's why it's more important to use discipline in your life. Motivation is defined as "having a strong reason to act or accomplish something". Whereas discipline is defined as an "activity, exercise, or a regimen that develops or improves a skill". Muhammad Ali was quoted as saying "I hated every minute of training, but I said, Don't quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life as a champion". So even one of the greatest athletes of all time was never really motivated to train but it was his discipline to train that made him successful.
So if you use discipline to exercise or accomplish your goals your motivation to do them is irrelevant; you just get in and do it, no excuses. But how do you cultivate discipline? One method that can help is hypnotherapy. You can see a hypnotherapist such as myself to help you develop your self discipline or even listen to hypnosis MP3s from regularly. It is my belief that it does take time to build discipline. But if you are willing to work on it you will always have the energy and commitment to succeed in life.

Other ways to cultivate discipline is to do something physically hard like Qigong, Martial Arts or Bikram Yoga. I can say on a personal level that my martial arts training has definitely given me discipline which I have applied to all areas of my life. And I would not be the man I am today without it.

However, discipline is nothing without a clear path in your mind about what you want. No amount of discipline will help you find a goal, but simply help you achieve it. Once you realise what you want to do, the consistency you receive from your discipline will allow everything to fall into place. We all have one thing that we wish we could accomplish. Do not let anything, or anyone, stand in the way of what you want to get out of life and take control of your decision making today.

Hypnotherapy for Sports


An article on named Hypnosis: Does It Really Work discussed about the success that people achieved in different fields through hypnotherapy. The article suggests that hypnotism helps to create a mental shift that affects body functions. A lot of people know that they have the potential to achieve more in their life but struggle to get there, this is where hypnotherapy comes in. It gives your mind the power to make your body perform up to its maximum level. The article also discusses that Hypnotherapy has had some success in sports as well. There has been a lot of research on the use of hypnotherapy in different sports. In every sport there have been occasions where seasoned athletes experience a drop in their performance and then over time start performing well again. The question one should ask is why did they start performing poorly when they have loads of experience. The answer is simple, because of their mindset. When they correct their mindset they get back to their peak performance or better. Hypnotherapy can work for athletes from all sports because it allows them to remove their limiting beliefs. Even at the international level, sports trainers use hypnotherapy to relieve the athlete’s stresses of competing at this peak level.

Hypnotherapy can help players become more confident. It can help them concentrate more on their game. An athlete with good technique might succeed but an athlete with a combination of good technique and a good mindset will definitely succeed. There are certain athletes in every sport who stay calm under pressure when a lot of the other athletes make mistakes. This all comes down to having the right mindset and positive self talk. Hypnotherapy can help an athlete remain calm under pressure. The toughest opponent an athlete will face is themselves, hypnotherapy helps change their internal belief system. Once the athlete’s limiting beliefs have been removed they will experience a positive change in their performance. This was proved in 1952 by Roger Bannister. He was the first man to run the mile in under 4 minutes, which had been deemed unbreakable as the world record stood for 9 years. But within a year, 30 other runners had achieved a similar time.

I’ve successfully worked with a lot of martial artists to help them increase their performance in the cage/dojo. Many have requested to be able to better control nerves before a fight or remain relaxed during a fight so they can react quicker. It is my belief that the next level of increased performance in the mixed martial arts arena will be from mental training. Because as the saying goes “it is the mind that moves the body.”

A lot of celebrities have reportedly lost weight with the help of Hypnotherapy. In 2013 Nigella Lawson lost 13kgs with the help of a UK Hypnotist.

Munn and Lawson are not the only celebrities who have had success with hypnosis for weight loss; others include - pop star Lily Allen, former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell and Sarah Ferguson, Duchess of York.

One recent research study followed a group of participants who wanted to start a workout program. They received a short educations program to assist them in deciding on the best exercises for themselves. Then they were assigned to a therapist and were finally given a series of hypnotherapy for weight loss sessions. The results of the study showed that 85% of people stayed with a regular workout program the entire six months of the project. Even more impressive was the fact that they lost on average, 7 more kilograms than the participants who did not receive hypnotherapy.

Hypnotherapy will allow your mind to modify its previous behaviour and develop new, more beneficial habits.
