I got this hypnosis tip from Jeff Stephens and it works GREAT. Jeff is planning a hypnosis training in San Francisco in January 2011. If you're interested the link is at the bottom of the page.
As a hypnotist, the single most important aspect of the process is...
Intent doesn’t begin when you start doing hypnosis. It begins before you ever step out on the street, in the office, whatever.
Make up your mind before you ever start that there will be hypnosis and it will be a great experience for both your subject and yourself.
And my ‘trick’ is to Always Assume Hypnosis.
I know... I know, “When you assume....” Well, frankly, I don’t care. (Those who have taken my course will understand that...)
Before you begin, assume that it will, of course, work out perfectly and the subject will go into hypnosis.
Once you begin, assume that everything is going perfectly and is leading the subject into hypnosis.
Once you do the induction, assume that it worked perfectly and that they will be in hypnosis until you bring them out.
Intent doesn’t end at the moment you say ‘SLEEP’ and the subject’s head drops. It runs through the entire process, right on through the part where you say “That’s it... WIDE AWAKE!... Feeling great... feeling fantastic!”
And, if you follow the two previous tips, you will be working with great subjects anyway.
In hypnosis ... the kind that Jeff teaches ... you are conditioning the subject into a compliant state. In fact so compliant that changes are easily made at very deep levels.
If you've never felt that feeling it is VERY pleasant...
...very pleasant to just follow along doing what the hypnotist says.
Some hypnotists spend a full HOUR just making sure the subject is completely compliant before giving the whammy instruction that the client paid for.
In that state the subject has no 'will' except what the hypnotist gives him/her.
It's powerful and it can be very scary when you know what's possible.
Okay, all the better reason to LEARN HOW IT IS DONE!!!
Jeff Stephens and I are putting on a West Coast Hypnosis Training in San Francisco on January 29th and 30th.
