I couldn't find the proper phrasing for the question. What I'm asking is, when you emerge from hypnosis, is it required that you remember the content of the suggestions for them to work?

In example (let's just say this is possible for now), if someone were to feed suggestions to the subconscious mind, then bring on amnesia SO STRONG that the subject actually FORGOT they had been hypnotized, would the subconscious still respond to the triggers?

Say a hypnotist said "when you hear the word 'jump', you will have an uncontrollable urge to vomit. When I count backwards from 10, you will fall out of hypnosis and have no recollection of the given suggestion" (again, assuming this is actually doable).

Now the subject has no recollection that he/she was hypnostized. If presented with the word "jump", would the subject feel ill for reasons unbeknownst to them? Or is it crucial that a subject knows the content of the suggestion for it to effect them?

I asked this somewhere else and a hypnotist told me that it is not necessary for a subject to recall the hypnosis for it to be effective. He/she said it would take a number of conditioning cycles followed by a number of amnesia loops to get that result. Is that true? He/she also told me they are a fan of therapeutic amnesia. Why would that be the case? What are the benefits to inducing amnesia following hypnosis?

I'm interested because I'm someone that sort of "jinxes" myself. If I KNOW what the desired response is, it's like I FIGHT it or something!! For this reason, I'd rather not be aware of any suggestion and just be taken aback by the unexplained positive changes in myself :-D

I know nothing about hypnosis.

It is not required that one remember suggestions given during hypnosis. At the same time, it can be helpful if they are remembered as that can serve to reinforce any currently existing motivation for the desired change.

But... that being said, you also describe what sounds like a dominant belief/behavior/motivation that runs counter to your desired outcome.

So, depending on the relative strengths of the opposing sides to this change, the suggestions may or may not have the desired effect. The motivation to NOT change will likely work against suggestions if you "remember" them or not.
