NOTE TO HYPNOTIST: IF THE CLIENT IS A MALE, USE A SMALL BOY IN THE METAPHOR. IF THE CLIENT IS A FEMALE, USE A SMALL GIRL IN THE METAPHOR.
I want you to imagine a little boy, walking through the woods on a beautiful spring day. Imagine this child walking down a path in the woods. He is at ease, and secure.
As you imagine this child in the woods, you will continue relaxing even further, and noticing yourself slipping into a state that is much like a deep, deep dreaming state. This scene will continue becoming more vivid, and real to you.
This young boy is coming upon a clearing just ahead.
Like most children he can hardly wait to discover what he will encounter in this clearing.
He begins to see a beautiful meadow, with the grass so green, the sky blue, and the air fresh, and clean.
To his right, he notices a small pond.
This young boy bends over, and picks up a stone. He then tosses the stone into the pond.
As the stone hits the water the child sees the ripples in the water. They begin with a small circle, and continue growing larger, and larger. He proceeds to toss a second, and third stone into the pond. With each stone he tosses, the water begins to create the ripples. Beginning at the location where the stone first hit the water, and then moving out ward all the way to the bank.
This young boy finds a comfortable place to sit down where there is still a large supply of stones. He then proceeds to toss the stones into the water one at a time, and he watches the rippling effect of the water.
Watching the ripples in the water causes this little boy to begin to feel very relaxed, and sleepy.
He is now laying on his side, tossing the stones into the water, while feeling drowsy has he watches the ripples of the water slowing moving from the center of the pond to all sides.
Soon the boy closes his eyes, and begins to drift off into a pleasant nap.
As he begins to drift off to sleep. He has a mental image of the pond, and the rippling effect of the water.
