Hypnotist Swinging Watch going into trance

The Swinging Watch is old fashioned but effective.

This is one of the earliest hypnosis inductions. Any time hypnosis is mentioned in movies, they use a swinging watch  to hypnotize the person. This has not actually been used for real since the early 1920's.

The swinging watch induction has gone out of style since men stopped wearing gold pocket watches. The swinging watch induction works well on most people, especially if they are expecting to get hypnotized with a swinging watch. The basic idea is to suspend the watch from the watch chain and set it swinging back and forth. Ask the client to follow the watch with their eyes, without moving their head.

The eye movement tends to distract the client's attention. As they are looking at the watch moving, you suggest to them that their eyes are getting tired... then heavy... then suggest their eyes are closing, until they close their eyes and go into trance.

You don't actually need a watch. Any kind of pendulum object will do. It doesn't even have to swing. Try twisting the chain so that it spins instead.

You can do the same thing with a flashlight. Shine it into their eyes, and move it slowly side to side,  while the person  looks into the light. You can also hold up a pen, and move it slowly from side to side and tell them to follow the shiny bit with their eyes. As you see signs of the person responding, pace and lead them. Link the strain on their eyes to going deeper and deeper.

The Hypnosis Induction Script Swinging Watch needs a bit of practice to get right. But it can be a fun thing to do as a demonstration.
