Steps for Successful Induction of Trance, Gil Boyne
There are two important steps to prepare the subject and pave the way for successful induction of trance:
Step One: Excite the Imagination!
Your success as a hypnotherapist will be in direct proportion to the degree that you can learn to excite the imagination! This is why stage hypnotists are so much more successful in creating trances than clinical therapists who think that their degrees will excite the client’s imagination.
When the subject of hypnotism comes up in a social setting, here’s the way to proceed: “Do you think you could hypnotize me?” “Of course I can. Are you ready? Stand up, right now.
Step Two: Develop Mental Expectancy!
Here is the rule: What is expected has a powerful tendency to be realized. This brings us to the “Placebo” Principle: What is expected tends to be realized, because your brain and nervous system cannot tell the difference; they have no ability to discriminate whether the imagery is coming from “outside” or “inside.”
If you are sound asleep at night and safe in bed, doors and windows all locked, and you have a dream that you are drowning and cry out in your sleep, “Save me! Save me!” when you wake up your heart is pounding and you have a choking sensation. It takes twenty to thirty minutes to get back to normal and another hour to get back to sleep. You were perfectly safe, but your brain and nervous system responded to the mental image and made it a reality for you. Discuss
Images are always reality to your brain and nervous system and that is what “worry” really is. When you imagine what you don’t want, you set into action forces known and unknown, that bring to you that which you fear. In the Old Testament when Job said, “The things that I have feared have come upon me,” he recognized a great psychological truth.
