The correct course of hypnotizing should have the following procedure: - interview, - choosing the right position by the subject of hypnosis, - introduction to the basic trance, - deepening the trance, - exit from the trance.
The conversation is very important initial step in hypnosis, and despite this, it is very often ignored (mostly because of laziness and excessive faith in the hypnotist forces).
Introductory talk allows hypnotherapist to have a overlook of the ideas they have about putting certain person under hypnosis.
This knowledge is usually a great help for hypnotherapist to proceeding with this person.
The initial conversation goal is to learn what subject thinks and knows about hypnosis.
If hypnosis subject considers hypnosis as something mysterious it is not always best idea to explain how it really is, since such a belief may facilitate entry into hypnosis.
In this phase hypnotist can also work on overcoming any fears about hypnosis that client may have.
Most people are afraid that they will not be able to wake up from trance.
As a hypnotist you need to explain that this is not possible and that in worst scenario they may fall asleep and wake up naturally.
Subject of hypnosis can lie down or sit.
It is important that they decide for themselves and get in a comfortable position.
In a seated position subject sits slightly tilted to one side.
His head is based on the headrest, and the arms are freely seat backs.
The legs should be almost straight and uncrossed as this produce tension.
Hypnotist in this case would be sitting next to the subject.
If subject decide to lay down then be sure that there is a small pillow under the head and the hands are kept straight.
It should be noted that if the person is lying there is often a feeling of dependence or sexual association - it can facilitate or hinder the process of hypnotizing.
During the initial conversation we feel that these feelings must be overcome, or actually used.
The right approach to subject of hypnosis is half of the battle.
In fact, there are three basic approaches, based on which various modifications are created.
Here they are: - Parent - the hypnotist is an authority, give instructions that aren't subject to discussion or changes.
Subject usually equates it with the figure of his father.
This method is most frequently used by stage hypnotists.
- Emotional and maternal - hypnotist creates a very close and warm contact with hypnotized person and thanks to that is associated with the figure of the mother.
- Passive - the hypnotist creates the impression that subjects directs him.
This method is used when dealing with subject which suggestions from other people and can only accept myself.
Chosen methods depends on the nature of the person and its actual mood combined with emotional state.
Therefore, it is extremely important to initially interview people.
Thanks to that you can refer to the nature of subject and his current wellbeing along with sense of humor.
Choosing the wrong approach to the person can prevent you completely from putting subject into a trance.
