Forgetting, amnesia, memory in itself is an interesting topic. How is it we can know something one moment and the next moment feel complete confusion? Forgetting is a common experience but it remains hard to explain. Even more amazing is how much can be made to be forgotten with hypnosis!
As a very general rule, it’s a bad idea, and very poor ecology, to make someone forget an event, even a traumatic event. Better to keep it as a memory but change it’s meaning and the feelings one has toward it. That is commonly what is done using hypnosis. From there a trauma becomes a learning experience.
Still, amnesia is a useful hypnotic phenomena to try to understand. An interesting thing I’ve noticed in conversation is that just mentioning the words “forget”, “confused”, “forgetting”, “lost”, “forgotten”, “don’t remember” and “amnesia” have a very strange impact on how people respond.
There’s is a entire section devoted to language and amnesia the my book “Mind Control Language Patterns“.
