1 hypnosis trick that always works!
The easy hypnosis test
A simple hypnosis trick that can hypnotize anyone. The hypnosis test is fun to do in a bar or at a party. It is easy to learn, safe, and you get a great reputation as a powerful hypnotist. It doesn't any special set up or preparation. You can do it anywhere, anytime. And it always works,
Even if the occasional person doesn't do it right, you still have an out: they were actually preventing themselves from being hypnotized. So that is what you talk about next: their views on hypnosis and letting go of control.
When you tell people you can do hypnosis, usually the first thing they say is 'Can I be hypnotized?' or 'OK, hypnotize me!' The easiest thing to do is to invite them to try this hypnosis test.
Any time you mention that you are interested in hypnosis, everyone asks 'Can I be hypnotized?' Most people are either sure that they can't be hypnotized, or are afraid of being hypnotized.
But everyone is interested. If you can show them a simple hypnosis trick you can get everyone interested in you, because you seem to have this mysterious ability.
The truthy is, everyone can be hypnotized, every one is suggestible, it's just that some people are more susceptible to suggestion than others. By using the hypnosis test you can tell how susceptible someone is, and predict how they will react to hypnotic suggestions.
Try the hypnosis trick on yourself first
There are several hypnotic tests, but the Finger Steeple Test is the easiest. All you have to do is follow a simple script, and trust that the method will work. In fact you can guarantee that it will work. Just try it on yourself !
Follow the instructions, put your hands in the right position, look at at the space between your fingers, and see those fingers move! They cannot not move, unless you deliberately act to prevent it. (You will find that this is actually quite difficult to, those fingers really want to close together.)
This hypnosis trick is quick and easy to do. It works because the fingers must move together. You don't tell the person that. You tell them that you are making their fingers move. And by suggesting that it is because of your personal power, their own belief system will come and help you.
What you are doing is legal and ethical . You are merely showing that hypnosis is not mysterious or frightening. You are proving that hypnosis can happen with your eyes open, when you fully aware of what is going on.
It shows people that they can be hypnotized without mentioning hypnosis at all. You can talk about if people are being hypnotized and noticing. You can tell them how advertising uses hypnosis tricks to sell things. You can point out that politicians know all about hypnosis.
The whole point of the hypnosis trick is to get the other person talking, and you are simply using hypnosis as away to get to know someone.
HOW TO DO THE HYPNOSIS TEST RIGHT
The text in green is what puts the idea of a different 'mind space' into the other person's head. Talking about those fingers or that gap in a tone of wonder causes the other person to think of them as being something outside of them. They think that whatever is happening must be happening because of something outside their control. The text in blue marks the direct suggestion phrases, the suggestions that make the routine work.
You have to deliver the suggestions with absolute belief in your voice. Everyone is susceptible to hypnosis, but any hesitation or anxiety will be picked up. Unless you totally believe in the power of hypnosis, the other person won't.
You need to communicate total certainty about what is going to happen to the person you are hypnotizing in a subtle but unmistakable way.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE HYPNOSIS SUSCEPTIBILITY TEST
The Hypnosis Susceptibility test is actually a test of resistance, not susceptibility or suggestibility.
The test works on everyone. This is because if you hold your index finger straight up, the ligaments in your hand will naturally contract and pull the finger forward. So if you hold both index fingers up they will automatically pull forward. That is why it looks like they are being attracted to each other.
Everyone should respond to it. If doesn't work it means that the person you are testing is actively resisting your suggestions. This tells you that to hypnotize this person you will need to use an indirect hypnosis induction method. The resistance usually occurs because the person fears that they are losing control. They see their own fingers mysteriously moving and panic. Many people are so afraid of losing control, they will deliberately pull back to stop them touching.
Change it to an induction
The combination of inevitable physical movement linked to hypnosis suggestion is very powerful. Most people will report being unable to separate their fingers. And at that moment they really believe they can't. In some people you will see their eyes glaze over and get a 'spacey' look. For these people all you have to do is say 'In a moment I will count from Three down to One, and when I reach One your hands will drop into your lap, and you will fall into a deep hypnotic trance. Counting now - Three, Two, One. Sleep!'
Even those people who do resist your hypnosis suggestions will be impressed. They will always admit that they saw their fingers beginning to move before they started resisting. Build on this to point out that they were actually going into trance and only their own deliberate action prevented it. This usually leads on to a discussion of beliefs about hypnotic suggestion and a willingness to try a different hypnosis induction.
