Shocking Mind Fail!

"I don't know what happened. I don't remember anything. I was fine, just listening to you, thinking this was all silly, and then... it was like the bottom fell out of my head! Like my mind just—failed?—suddenly."

The cruise ship was stopped at a port, and I had bumped into Evan while he was enjoying the port with his friends. He recognized me immediately, and he was vibratingly eager to talk with me and his friends about his experience on stage two nights before.

Evan scratched the back of his neck, trying to recall more about the incident. "One moment I was fine, and the next, I was just... Gone! Out! Blackness.
Next thing I remember, I was sitting in my chair again, alongside everybody else on stage. Then we all went back into hypnosis together."
He shook his head slowly left and right, adding, "I'm telling you guys, it was real. I have never felt anything like that before in my life. It was amazing."

(Evan is the one in the gray shirt. This was his second drop into hypnosis that night.)

Evan had been struck by the Power of Lighting-fast Hypnosis by Professor Jay Tee, and he also served as an excellent demonstration subject for the others on stage to see and emulate...
Within five minutes after Evan's "mind failure," Jay Tee dropped 19 out of the 20 volunteers on stage into deep hypnosis. (The norm for stage hypnosis is only one out of five!)

Dramatic responses, Fascinating reactions, and Permanent habit changes come from using Professor Jay Tee shows/seminars for your events and cruises.

Strike Like Lightning

The air takes on a breathless feel as my audience of a thousand people wonders who will be struck next. My subjects have just been seated on stage, are still shifting in their seats. I select a young man wearing a blue T-shirt as my target. He’ll be the first to go.

As I walk toward Mr. Blue at center stage, I sense raw emotion, as if it were a growing electrical field. Some subjects lean back away from me with sudden, irrational fear. I smile a wicked grin, and don’t slow my pace.

This group is perfectly ready for what I’m about to do...
Strike Like Lightning!
As I approach, I extend my hand to shake, gesturing him to stand at the same time. I call out my name and say Hello. As with anyone well-trained in Western culture, he stands and reaches to grasp my hand, smiling in preparation for introducing himself. But his right hand misses mine, which has somehow rapidly circled around and grasped the back of his.

"Look at your hand, look at your hand, look only at your hand, close your eyes, feeling so relaxed, so sleepy, just let go , drop down, dropping down now, I've got you, let yourself go and around and around and down..." my nonstop comments/suggestions/commands overwhelm his confused mind, and he finds it much easier to follow every one of them.

I ease him to the floor carefully, reassuring him that he is doing wonderfully and feeling amazingly well. He is already deep in trance within five seconds from the time that our hands met...

I look up to evaluate my subjects on stage. (I can already hear the muttering roar from the audience.)
The remaining subjects look on with expressions ranging from stunned disbelief to horrified am-I-next? looks.

Not a skeptical expression is left to be found. Excellent.
I grin even wider as I find my next target.
Next victim, please.

The Classic Handshake Induction is only one of dozens of instant hypnosis inductions used by Professor Jay Tee in each of his shows and seminars. 
(Instant inductions also help to prepare other volunteers to accept more rapid inductions. Much like toppling a row of dominoes...)

Tips on Using Interpreters

Tips on Using Interpreters for a Show or Seminar

by Professor Jay Tee, zapmymind.com

I was asked to give some tips to a friend, and then forgot about it like half of forever. Hope he can still use these, and since the tips might be useful for others, I’m sharing them publicly, too.
I have also added this as a section in my upcoming book, "Zap My Mind."

  1. Simple, simple, simple. I can’t say this too much. Keep the show simple, keep the language simple. Save the complex shows and speeches for native language audiences only.

  2. Arrange for interpreters well before the event. Some venues hire locals and bring them in at the last minute. Some bring professionals by airplane. Some have them on staff. Nag the venue/hiring company when needed (by email) and get assurances. You don’t want them to forget that you need one, or be blamed for their error.

  3. Meet the interpreters well before the event, if at all possible. You want to assess their level of ability in English. Some interpreters have certifications that say they are great, but their actual level is quite low. You need to know this.

  4. You may meet the interpreter only 5 minutes before the event. Talk to them for a minute anyhow; it helps you tremendously to try and gauge their ability. You should always guess they are somewhat lower than you think.

  5. You must match your speaking level to that of the interpreter’s ability, or lower. It does no good if they are ad-libbing what to say because they must guess at what you said. Especially if you used too-fancy or too-technical words.

  6. If you use a script, go through it and simplify all the language. Practice it with the simpler language. It doesn’t hurt natives when you use simpler speech, either!

  7. If you don’t use a script, then practice, practice, practice until you can avoid the tougher words and phrases easily. You don’t want to be searching your mind frantically for a simpler way to say something, standing in front of 5,000 people. Trust me on that.

  8. Use ONLY short phrases. In some languages, they can’t even start to interpret until you finish the sentence! And if you typically speak in long phrases linked with commas, you’re just asking for trouble. The interpreter may forget whole sections that were essential. Because you didn’t help them do their job…

  9. Short phrases may sound choppy to natives in the audience, but choppy to some is far better than unintelligible to your interpreters.

  10. Expect delays. Your natives will respond first, and then there is a variable delay as your language is interpreted, then the interpreted-for people will respond. You may find them laughing at a joke you made 30 seconds ago, and can barely remember. Just keep on going, and don’t wonder, “Why did they suddenly laugh at me?”

  11. If you have interpreters doing multiple languages at the same time, it can get confusing. You will have multiple delays and multiple delayed responses happening all at the same time. Bull through and keep going. You’re probably doing fine.

  12. Voila! If you followed all the above ideas, you’ve probably wowed the audience and made a whole group of foreign people think you are a genius. Good for you!
