Hello, and welcome to a new mini-blog, TUBE-NOSIS, it’s a place where for the month of January 2019, I’m going to watch a female hypnotist’s video a day and provide a rundown based on the watching experience.
Content reviewed in this blog is both vanilla, and erotic. While you should always approach anyone with respect and courtesy, please do not approach vanilla people about your kinks and fetishes as that is not the business they are in.
Day 22: Come Closer, Little Moth with TheOneLiliumASMR
Video Link: Here
Was I hypnotized?
Yes… see below.
Why This Video?
I got a couple of great emails from a reader today recommending I give Lilium a look after the ASMR performer I featured yesterday.
And of course I knew who she was, you poke around the erotic tinged elements of YouTube hypnosis and you’ll come across her, at least that’s how I did initially. This video was one of the ones recommended, and I went with it.
Is This Erotic?
Sort of? There’s a vibe going on in her stuff that’s very girlfriend experience-y, and a little power exchange-y too, at least in this video. But there’s also the question of if manufactured intimacy from someone (who you may be attracted to) takes on a certain erotic quality too.
But no, it’s not overtly adult content in nature.
Are There Any Suggestions, Triggers, or Post Hypnotic Suggestions?
What About The Rest of Her Channel?
Lots of stuff, lots of ASMR, some other “hypnosis” content (see below).
Other Thoughts/About The Hypnotist?
So, what happened, and what is the greatest trick Lilium ever played? Well, since this video has 3 million views and 11 thousand likes I feel comfortable being pretty direct here.
Her greatest trick was getting “lucky” putting together the pieces that we covered in yesterday’s article about how someone who is not a hypnotist can hypnotize you.
I went on a bit of a dive, because I did go under in this video but I wanted to see if it was luck on her part (I’ve seen it before, feel free to reach out and ask, I’m happy to talk about my experiences in private, and always with respect to the people whose work I’m talking about), and I’m pretty sure it was.
Lilium has a lot going for her as a YouTube personality. She’s got 200 thousand subscribers, which is probably roughly the amount (or maybe double, depending on who you talk to) of femdom hypno-fetishists out there, she’s telegenic, she’s charismatic, and she she knows how to put her “weird YouTube” stuff together. Weird YouTube being this kind of stuff in general, from smoshing, to ASMR, to hypnosis, whatever.
But what she isn’t is a hypnotist, which is both not fair of me to say as a statement of pure fact (maybe she took classes, maybe she’s been trained by someone, in other videos she bandies out some core concepts so she at least knows about it in at least a passing fashion, she also doesn’t identify as a hypnotist so me saying “she’s not a hypnotist” isn’ really me saying anything at all right), and based wholly on questions of structure.
What is structure in hypnosis?
Structure is the working logic and correlation between thought and action that help guide and inform the subject on their way into trance. Structure puts together all the pieces of an induction, frames deepeners, and creates the environment when suggestions can take root. You can have all the pieces of a hypnosis session, but if you either don’t know how they fit together -or- essentially copy verbatim that material, your induction probably won’t work.
But sometimes, you can still get lucky, and that includes using your other tools and skills to smooth things over.
One of the things about ASMR is that a lot of the approaches coincidentally add to/duplicate certain hypnotic approaches. There is an auditory/sensory overload that can achieve a similar response to touch overload used during in-person rapid inductions.
But what is this kind of overload in the first place?
Well, it’s a cornerstone of Kappasinian hypnosis (see also HMI: Hypnosis Motivation Institute) that is based in the psychological principle of fight or flight and generating a state of mental anxiety (but not like “anxiety” anxiety…) that leads the conscious mind to disengage and enter into a trance state. So, here’s a little more of how this all comes together.
An ASMR artist can wave her hands in front of your face, tap, make noises, pause, break and speak in broken rhythms and all of that can add up to the same kind of anxious sensory state, but like I said, there’s a lot about this that falls into “luck”.
Not so much luck in the “oh it’s a coin toss” sense of the word, and more a sense of luck as in things just landed and came together that way.
Also, it’s really important that I state up front (or again if you caught the implication and my overall positive vibe), this isn’t some kind of gotcha expose’, ASMR artists tell you up front what they are, and it’s like I said in the last entry, sometimes hypnosis can happen even when it’s just being role-played.
Anyhow, let’s see what gets chosen for tomorrow!
