Your lesson is over. Use either induction over and over until it feels a part of you. Practice the tests or experiments you learned earlier on every person you can get to do it. You will gain more confidence as you experiment. Your hypnotic subject will be eager to feel the same feelings again. He/she may feel a deepening effect each time you hypnotize.
Please do not use hypnotic age-regression at this time. It takes a more detailed course to really get a good grasp on hypnotic age regression. I give full day and two-day workshops to allow people to learn age regression the proper way. The safety of your subject always must be the most important thing in your mind during these session.
Hypnosis is best when it is a cooperation between you, the hypnotist and your subject. Good luck and I wish you the best. Please read more books, listen to tapes and CD's and become the best hypnotist you can be.

Hypnosis has been defined as a state of heightened suggestibility in which the subject is able to uncritically accept ideas for self-improvement and act on them appropriately. When a hypnotist hypnotizes his subject, it is known as hetero-hypnosis. When an individual puts himself into a state of hypnosis, it is known as self-hypnosis.
