How to get someone out of a hypnotic trance
A common myth about hypnosis is that you will not come out of a trance or that you will never wake up. This is simply not going to happen. If for some reason your subject falls asleep and is no longer responding to your suggestions, you can simply wake him up as you would any other sleeping person. Or you can let him fall asleep and he will wake up later as he would after a nap.
There are many ways to get someone out of hypnosis. I will describe two ways to you and through experimentation you will determine which one to use and when.
Generally, you take someone out quickly to create an open loop. This is accomplished by not finishing the hypnosis session and in the middle of the trance-breaking experience. For example, someone might describe their newfound confidence to you and you might wake them up in the middle.
This leaves them in the mental state of seeing themselves as confident. You can close the loop hours, days, or even weeks later. The lessons learned from the cycle will last much longer than if you just logged out. Usually I break the trance quickly by saying “3,2,1 awake!” very quickly and the person wakes up almost instantly.
The other way to break the trance is by creating a trigger that is linked to “awakening.” This trigger is a hypnotic suggestion that will take effect only after they wake up. As an example, you might say, “When you wake up, you will feel a surge of confidence. This will improve your mood and leave a lasting impression on how you see yourself.”
To break the trance, you count them slowly. You introduce the idea by saying, “I’m going to start slowly counting to 10. With each number you will feel more and more awake. With each number you will feel your confidence increase. With each number you will start to feel better about yourself. And what you are capable of. “.
Then he starts counting, and each number adds a suggestion.
For example, “One, begin to gently wake up.”
“Two, start to feel the energy return to your body.”
“Three, the increased energy is already improving your mood and making you feel better.”
“Four, you almost feel like you can open your eyes.”
“Five, you can feel the effects of the hypnosis session beginning to have a powerful and positive effect on your life.”
“Six, you can feel a surge of energy rushing towards your feet.”
“Seven, you are starting to feel awake and energetic.”
“Eight, when you start to wake up, you can already begin to notice how the lessons from the hypnosis session are improving your life.”
“Nine, almost there, almost wide awake.”
“And ten, open your eyes, refreshed and wide awake, ready to enter the world as a positive and confident person.”
Each of these two methods has its benefits, and with practice you will learn when it is best to use each.
