While hypnosis may look like magic, there are numerous science and practices behind the process of hypnotizing someone. One of the best ways to accomplish the process is by using your eyes. But you should only use this method on people who offer their consent before hypnotizing them.
- Communicate in a Soothing, Low, and Slow Voice
Make sure you take your time while talking and make sure your voice is collected and calm. Then draft out your sentence a bit extended than the usual way. When doing this, imagine you are calming down a worried or a frightened person, then let your voice serve as an example. Additionally, be sure to maintain this tone throughout the whole interaction process.
- Request the Person to Concentrate on Deep, and Regular Breaths
Ensure you help the person perform regular breaths through lining it up with your breaths. You must be specific at this point. Focused breathing allows oxygen to the person’s brain, making them think of different things apart from their environment, stress, and hypnosis.
- Let Them Focus their Gaze on a Particular Place
This can either be a dimly lit item inside a room or your forehead when you are standing in front of the person. Ask the person to select any object around then focus on it. If the person feels relaxed enough to close the eyes, allow them to do so.
As the person does this, make sure you concentrate on their eyes. When the eyes seem like they are running around, tell the person to concentrate on one object. Alternatively, if you want the person to focus on you, make sure you remain still.
- Allow Them to Relax their Body
Immediately you have them calm, and breathing regularly, request them to relax their feet and toes. Let them focus on allowing these muscles to go, then shift up to the calves. Once done that, request them to lower their leg, then raise their leg again to the face muscles. After that, circle around their back, fingers, arm, and shoulders.
At this time, be sure to maintain your voice calm and slow. If it seems tense or twitchy, re-do or slow down the process.
- Ask Them to Be Relaxed
Make sure you direct the attention using suggestions. Make them feel as though they are relaxed and calm. Since you have many things to say, your goal is to help them move deeper focusing on relaxation with every exhalation and inhalation.
- Use their Body Language and Breathing Style to Know their Mental Situation
Make these suggestions once again until the person gets relaxed totally. Check for tension and signs straight on their eyes, toes, and fingers. Also, check on their breathing, whether it irregular or shallow, then continue working on your relaxation techniques until they look relaxed and calm.
How to Hypnotize Someone with Your Eyes
Step 1: Do Some Eye Exercises
Make sure you maintain some eye contact for an extended period without blinking them. You can also use a mirror to look at yourself then time the period under which you can maintain your eye contact with the person without blinking.
Additionally, you can perform an eye staring competition with your friend to test the ability. Getting a proper eye command over your eye movements will help maintain constant eye contact with your client during the hypnosis process.
Furthermore, you can test your capability to focus on someone using your eyes. For this to happen, have a close look at things like a pencil or a pen.
- Hold the pen near your face then focus on it.
- Shift from focusing on the pen to something that’s a bit further, such as a picture hanged on the doorknob or a wall.
- Then move back to focusing on the pen again. After that, focus on a distant item. Do this to boost your focus flexibility.
Step 2: Request for Permission from the Person
Start by asking them whether you can hypnotize them. Sometimes it’s nice to hypnotize using your eyes on a loved one or a friend who trusts you as they will be friendlier to the process. If they don’t like the process or rather resist it, hypnosis won’t work properly.
Step 3: Tell the Person to Sit Upright and Comfortable
Make sure they are not standing as they can fall over after getting relaxed during the process. Then tell the person not to stare away as you speak.
Step 4: Look at the Person without Blinking Your Eyes
As you do this, begin counting from one to five in a low, and a soothing voice. When counting, speak to them some words such as:
- Your eyelids are getting heavy and heavy
- Eyelids are getting heavy, as though weight is pulling them downward
- Your eyelids will get heavier soon,, and they shall close
Continue speaking thee phrases as many times as possible as you count from one to five.
Step 5: Notify the Person That You Are Going to Hold their Shoulder
It’s essential to alert the person to your next action before you touch them. Doing this helps them understand that you will offer them a command, and they’ll respond to the command through doing everything you want them to do.
Step 6: Next, Hold the Person’s Shoulder
While holding their shoulder, make sure you alert them to relax and be loose. Never be alarmed when the person leans or slumps back in the chair. This shows you that they are relaxed and are now under hypnosis situation.
Step 7: Tell the Person That they Are under Hypnosis
It’s essential to confirm to the person that the relaxing feeling that they are facing is due to the hypotonic state. Furthermore, be sure to promise the person that they are in good hands and safe to make them keep on listening to your commands and trusting you.
Step 8: Alert the Person That their Right Arm Must Now Be Heavy and Loose
Please make sure you tell that their right arm should feel relaxed and limp. After that, touch their arm to initiate a response from them. You can confirm this by lifting their arm to make you understand that it’s now relaxed and limp. Furthermore, this signifies that they are ready to listen to your commands and voice.
Step 9: Set Them Up to Follow Your Voice
Begin counting from one to five. Then notify them that immediately you reach five, they’ll only hear your voice. Once at “five”, ensure you snap your fingers to make them concentrate on your voice. After that, tell them to follow your words exactly and no other voice near them.
Step 10: Lastly, Test Their Hypnotic Nature
Since you have the hypnotic control over the person, ensure you test out your ability by making the person touch their ear or nose. Furthermore, instruct them to move their leg or arms after you command them.
