How to Hypnotize
If you want to learn how to hypnotize, you came to the right place. Below are easy steps that will help you understand the process as well as have a general idea about the topic. But before starting with the steps, you need to know the basic concepts about hypnotize. Hypnosis is a mental state (state theory) or imaginative role-enactment (non-state theory) usually induced by a procedure known as a hypnotic induction, which is commonly composed of a long series of preliminary instructions and suggestions. Hypnotic suggestions may be delivered by a hypnotist in the presence of the subject, or may be self-administered ("self-suggestion" or "autosuggestion"). The use of hypnotism for therapeutic purposes is referred to as "hypnotherapy."
Easy Steps to Hypnotize
Below are simple steps to learn how to hypnotize. Go step by step, and check your progress.
- Things To Know First
Before you start learning how to hypnotize let us warn you about a couple of things.
A.Don't ask someone to do anything in hypnosis that might be harmful for him/her. A good thing of thumb is not to ask them to do anything in a trance that you wouldn't ask otherwise. People do not have super-human qualities in hypnosis.
B.You may hear some people tell you they didn't "feel" hypnotized. Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state, so it feels normal to most people. Oftentimes people expect a profoundly odd feeling to occur in trance.
C.The only thing that can keep people from attaining hypnosis is fear. If someone is afraid of you or of hypnosis it will not be easy.
- It's time to hypnosis
1-Try to make the person you're working with sit or lie down in a comfortable position.
2-Speak slowly in a soothing voice (it doesn't have to be monotone).
3-Say "Take a deep breath and as you let it out, close your eyes and begin to feel yourself relaxing." in a soothing voice (If their eyes are already closed, leave the eye closing out)
4-Have your subject put their awareness on different parts of their body and relax them. You can use these phrases such as "Now become aware of your arms... now relax your arms... let them grow more and more comfortable... let the muscles become loose and limp and even more relaxed". Repeat this type of instruction for all areas of the body.
5-Sprinkle your language with plenty of positive reinforcements such as - "That's right, good, you're doing just fine."
6- Not all people are the same so repeat if necessary, you may have to repeat the whole procedure a few times. For most people 10 or 15 minutes is enough.
7-Now when you're ready to emerge them just say "I'm going to count to five, when I reach five or before, your eyes will open and you'll feel relaxed and refreshed". Count up to five slowly with your voice getting a little less soothing and a little more "awake" with each number. When you reach four, if their eyes aren't open say "On the next number your eyes will open and you'll feel relaxed and refreshed. Five, eyes open, feeling relaxed and refreshed."
- Here are some of hypnosis signs. 1-General relaxation and loosening of the muscles 2-Feelings of warmth or coolness or tingling sensations 3-Fluttering of the eyelids 4-"Flattening" of the facial muscles (they look very relaxed) 5-Waxy skin tonus (the person will begin to look more like a mannequin - this is very subtle) 6-Increased redness or wetness of the eyes (upon opening them) 7-Fingers, arms or legs twitching slightly 8-It may take a slight effort for them to swallow 9-Changes in breathing rate and depth
