- 10th October 2010
This hypnosis induction script uses several milton model language patterns along with confusion.
The hypnosis induction script is in more of an NLP style than many hypnosis inductions. Checkout the Milton model for a more detailed description.
|Now I don't want you to think now||Negation helps to confuse what the hypnotist actually wants here.|
|about how you'll feel when you relax deeply,||Asking the client to think about relaxing deeply will force them to access the state of relaxation.|
|because I don’t want you to go there straight away now.||Embedded command.|
|I know that you know how good your unconscious||Indirection adds confusion to the process.
Your unconscious or You're unconscious? Another embedded command.
|is at following directions deeper right now.||This makes no really sense but the client will take it as a command to relax deeply.|
|And as you continue to listen to the sound of my voice||Keep the client focused and following commands.|
|while you try to remain consciously focused on your body in the chair,||Try implies failure so we're commanding the client to do the opposite.|
|I'm not sure how difficult you'll find it to stop your heavy eyes from closing right now||Fairly standard hypnotic misdirection along with an embedded command.|
|but the more you try to stay awake the more you'll continue to wonder just how deep you may be able to go – now – is that an interesting thought – right there?||'the more the more' is a great little pattern based on cause and effect. If we supply something that is happening such as breathing or speaking and something we want the client to do then|
|That's right?||Simply brings the client to the present and affirms whatever is going on.|
|Are you beginning to consider whether you're relaxed now?||An embedded question that leads the client to think about the relaxed state and thus relax more.|
|Which part of your body is the most relaxed.||Another command to get the client to internally access a relaxed state.|
|Do you feel that relaxation spreading now? Do you think you've ever been more relaxed? Can you think of a time when you were even more relaxed?||These three statements presuppose that the client is relaxed, and the questions keep the client accessing the relaxed state.|
|Its funny how when you think about being relaxed you always wonder whether you can go deeper and as soon as you do....||Keep the client thinking about relaxation. The open ended statement is something I really like to do. If you pause at the end, the client will go internal to work out what should happen next, and then apply that themselves. This means that the client is likely to go deep quickly after a few moments of confusion.|
|That's right. I remember once I became so relaxed that you ... Drift deeper.||Even though this is grammatically rubbish, it doesn't matter. Such statements give the client a lot of work to do and its easy to slot embedded commands in at the same time.|
This kind of hypnosis induction script is one that you really can't learn by rote. If you practice with the milton model language patterns eventually you will find that this kind of hypnosis induction script comes quite naturally and it won't be long before you generate your own first hypnosis induction script.
