The 8 word instant hypnosis induction is one of the few inductions that always seems to catch a beginners attention, the 8 word induction is just a simple adaptation on the Arm Drop induction (which it is), the only difference is that it has 8 predefined words that make it all the more appealing and easier to perform especially for the hypnotic beginner.
So, Imagine being able to Hypnotize anyone with just 8 words (for the Induction), sounds enticing to you?
Great, because it did for me as well, in fact the arm drop induction was one of the first inductions I learned.
Those Magical 8 words are:
“Push on my hand, Close your eyes, SLEEP!”
Now, let us learn how to use these magical eight words for the hypnosis induction. Just as its verbal usage the induction itself is very simple and easy to perform.
Firstly you will need the subjects permission, always use a willing subject, it is the ethical thing to do, once you have pre-talked them, got them to follow your instructions, you may begin the induction:
- Put your one hand, palm facing upwards in front of them.
- Ask them to Push on your Hand.
- Push upwards matching their Strength
- Ask them to Close Their Eyes
- Once they have done that, Instantly Move your hand from under theirs.
- Give the Sleep Command.
The Last three steps Should all happen instantaneously without waiting, pausing or wondering, you, the hypnotist, should be confident that it will work and it will.
Remember that this Induction has nothing to do with the angle of the hands, the force that they push, or little aspects like that, This is a simple induction, do not complicate it, it simply works, be confident that it will, and have a clear vision and intent and then it surely will.
