NOTE TO HYPNOTIST: THE FOLLOWING INDUCTION IS USING THE WORDS SLEEP THROUGHOUT THE INDUCTION. IT IS IMPORTANT TO EXPLAIN TO THE CLIENT PRIOR TO THE SESSION THAT ALTHOUGH YOU MAY BE USING TERMS OF SLEEP, THAT THEY WILL NOT BE ASLEEP IN THE SAME WAY THAT THEY ARE AT NIGHT. STRESS THAT THEY WILL STILL BE AWARE OF EVERYTHING THAT IS HAPPENING AROUND THEM.
With your eyes closed I would like you to take in a deep breath, hold it for a moment and exhale slowly.
As you continue breathing in deeply, and exhaling slowly you are starting to notice a very heavy feeling covering your entire body. Everything is becoming heavier, and heavier.
It is beginning to feel as though you were moving into a state of SLEEP. Now this SLEEP is quite different than the sleep that you experience at night. IN this SLEEP you can hear my voice, and do has my voice suggests. Each time I say the word SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP. Let yourself go deeper into this wonderful SLEEP. As you sit there in this pleasant darkness it is easy for you to go deeper into this perfect SLEEP, SLEEP, SLEEP.
