Hand Spread Induction
A mystifying Induction using one hand
Hand spread Induction
Description: The Hand Spread Induction script is an unusual and showy hypnotic induction.
Procedure: It is a 'pace and lead induction' and needs good pacing and leading skills. It works because when you spread your hand, your fingers will start to move in on their own unless constant effort is used to keep them apart. The hypnotist paces those movements by suggesting that the movements will continue, that the fingers will continue to move towards each other. As the fingers start moving that movement is linked to suggestions of trance and loss of control... that as the fingers get closer the trance will get deeper.
Advantages: Good for demonstrations
Uses: It is particularly useful for hypnotising a client who is standing.
Extensions: The hypnotist can aim to get eye closure and then deepen, or can suggest while the fingers are closing that the hand is falling towards the person and when it touches they will go into trance, or that when you snap your fingers, the hand will drop instantly and go into trance.
EXTRACT FROM THE HAND SPREAD INDUCTION
|demo||Just settle yourself comfortably down.... and when you are ready... hold your hand up in front of your face, palm towards you, with the fingers spread apart... so you can see the whole hand...||I||Seeding comfort, down|
|at a comfortable distance...that's right... just spread those fingers out....||make sure the client is not too long or short sighted to see the fingers!|
|now just look at your hand... focus on that hand..... notice that the fingers want to move... moving very slightly.... very slightly moving together.... that's right moving together...||I||Dissociation|
