If you’re a beginner, there are certain important steps you need to consider, as these steps will help you becoming a professional hypnotherapist in no time. In the next few paragraphs you’ll learn how to hypnotize someone without going through any difficult procedure.
Before you begin the process, it is important to allow the person to relax in a very comfortable seat in a quiet place. Furthermore, make sure you inform the person about the procedure, and let him/her know that the procedure is natural and risk free.
How to Hypnotize Someone: Why do I need to explain the process to the person?
Like I said earlier, most people believe that hypnosis is supernatural and does require special power. So if you want to perform such procedure on someone who is unsure about the method, then you need to explain and clear their doubts and let them know that the process is 100% safe and natural. Once you’ve assure the person that the process is natural, you can proceed to the following steps.
Another thing you need to do is to ask whether the person has been hypnotized before. In case they have, ask what they were told to do and how they felt about it. Asking such questions could help you devise a more effective method and avoid what might hinder the process.
One of the things that can prevent you from getting good results is the way that the person perceives hypnosis. If they believe that you want to perform magic on them, it is likely that they will not do exactly what you want them to do. In that case, the process is unlikely to work the way it should.
How to Hypnotize Someone – Step 1: Ask them to relax their muscles
Another thing you need to do is to ask the person relax his/her muscles. Follow all the possible techniques you can use to ensure that the muscles are completely relaxed. Ideally, you can let the person lift his/her arms gently and drop them down. Move the head slightly in clockwise and anticlockwise direction. Allow the neck, back, and leg muscles relax as well.
It is advisable to do this in a quiet place. However, you can still follow the procedure, even if the place is not completely silent. All you need to do is to ensure that there would be no sudden interruptions, like sudden noise. Furthermore, you need to discourage things that could make the person laugh.
How to Hypnotize Someone – Step 2: Ask them to close their eyes and speak to them in a low, soothing voice
Now, tell the person to take a deep breath and let it out. Instruct them to do it again for a few more times. As you breathe and let it out, make sure that they feel relaxed the more. Speak in a low voice and tell them to take a deep breath again, and let it out.
Ask your partner to imagine themselves flying through the air with no stress or fear. Say it with a low voice and ask them to experience the softness of the cloud as they fly through the air. Of course, the cloud is pure and good for deep relaxation. Tell them with low voice to imagine themselves sinking down into the deep cloud and experience a great feeling of relaxation as they sink down. With their eyes closed and their muscles relaxed, they can feel exactly what you instruct them. Ask them to think about their stress and worries flowing out like a river, and tell them to feel relaxed as those feelings are being replaced.
How to Hypnotize Someone – Step 3: Change your instructions into suggestions
At this point you can change your instructions and suggest how they should be feeling. For instance, I would change my conversation as follows: “can you feel yourself relaxing?” you should be experiencing a feeling of deep relaxation now. Of course, the feelings of being relaxed would be stronger as I continue to talk, until you fall into a deep state of hypnosis.
Use the person’s breathing and body language as a guide and make suggestions similar to the following.
You can repeat the suggestions and make it sound like choruses of a song. Here are some of the suggestions:
• “Now you feel much comfortable and relaxed with every word that I say.”
• “The more relaxed you are, the more you want to go. And the deeper you go, the more you experience the feelings of deep relaxation.”
After changing from instructions to suggestions, you may conclude with words like:
“I can see that you are very comfortable in a deep sleep, and even going faster and deeper all the time. Indeed, you feel relaxed and comfortable. Now you see that that those suggestions are truly for your benefit, and nothing more.”
In order to make the person go deeper into hypnosis, provide other positive suggestions that will make them achieve their goals. By providing positive suggestions, the person will try new behaviors, attitudes, and feelings, which are not voluntary.
You can hypnotize someone if they really want to achieve some goal, however, you don’t have to scare them to achieve whatever they want to achieve.
Provided you follow the method described above, you should be able to hypnotize someone easily and achieve a high success rate. If the person responded well, then repeat the procedures using a shorter induction and try the positive suggestions again. You can learn how to hypnotize someone with the correct guidance and some exercised discipline.
