Casting Directions for ‘Hypnotize Someone!’
Hypnosis is a great way to battle many distinct issues including addiction, anxiety, as well as obsessive compulsive disorder. Among the first questions that normally comes up when talking about hypnosis is how to hypnotize someone. The simple truth is that its very easy to put a willing person into hypnosis, even if youve never hypnotized somebody with the progressive relaxation induction before.
Putting someone into trance is very simple, but it might take years to perfect the art of providing effective suggestion to the subconscious mind. In this article well go over the fundamentals of how to hypnotize someone with the progressive relaxation induction and discuss other applications of the techniques.
First off its important to understand that its very difficult to hypnotize someone if they dont want to be hypnotized or dont believe that it works. As a beginner learning how to hypnotize, its best to practice on individuals that are open minded and would genuinely like to experience hypnosis. Once youve found a willing subject then youre ready to move onto the techniques.
The most effective path to take when learning how to put someone in a trance for the first time is the progressive relaxation technique. This is the method that youre probably most familiar with as its usually the one portrayed on television and in the movies. The first thing you need to ensure is that you and your subject are in a comfortable room with as few outside distractions as possible.
Have the subject lie down or sit in a comfortable position so that theyre completely relaxed. When learning to hypnotize, concentrate on speaking with a soothing voice and look closely at your pace (if you want the person to relax, talk slower). The secret is for the subject to feel completely comfortable with your voice and the suggestions that youre giving for them to relax.
As the topic becomes more relaxed you would like to direct their focus on various parts of their body and have them profoundly relax each in order. You start with their toes and move up their body, one part at a time. Up the front, over the top, down the back, and repeat. This is one of the most essential steps when learning how to place someone in a deep trance as it helps the subject to relax but also takes their mind off the fact that theyre being hypnotized. It will likely be an essential part of these entering a condition of waken sleep so you have to persist with this step until they go unconscious.
The next step to hypnotize someone even deeper is to say Now that youre relaxed I would like you to bring your focus to your breathing and take a deep breath and as you let it out begin to feel yourself relax even more. And I want you to focus on each inhale and each exhale as you let yourself sink even deeper into a trance.
In order for the subject to be totally relaxed though you have to be relaxed. So pay attention to your relaxation and breathing. If you can put yourself into a trance another person is almost always likely to follow. How you say the words is as important as what youre saying
It could take as little as 5 minutes to your subject to go into a state of deep relaxation but will likely take a bit more. Cycle through relaxing the subjects body until you see them relaxing, breathing deeper and more rhythmically.
After theyre in the desired state its time to work on the problem, lets say its addiction to smoking. The key when learning to hypnotize is to allow the subject to figure the problem out for themselves. Youll likely have to direct the persons thoughts but in the end you need them to come to their own conclusion that smoking is just a bad habit, and that it does more harm than good.
When the subject has reached a decision you may use the traditional technique to awake them from their sleep by counting back from 10. The final aim is for the person to discover a desirable solution in their subconscious mind so that the desire to smoke is significantly diminished.
