Tools For A Great Induction

Pre-hypnotize your lover. What does he/she wish to accomplish during this session. Remember that you told your partner that he/she will "relax deeply all night along and awaken tomorrow feeling full of energy," at the very beginning of the exercise in Chapter 3. This is called pre-hypnosis.

Deep breathing suggestions: Tell your partner to breathe deeply to enhance the relaxation response.

Imagination stimulation: Focus on relaxing your lover's muscle groups. If you wish to give your lover an induction without reading the book, you can cue yourself on what to say by just looking at his/her body. Look at her head, talk about relaxing the muscles of the head, face, and neck and continue down her body by looking at it. This makes it easy in case she doesn't want the light on while you read, or you wish to use a candle for a wonderful lighting effect.

Post-hypnotic suggestion: Give your partner a suggestion during the induction that will predict and ask for a particular behavior, once she/he awakens from hypnosis. The behavior we are looking for in this book is the complete relaxation and stress reduction at night and the full awareness and high energy level during awakening. As you experiment on your own with your personal goals, you will develop many post-hypnotic suggestions.

Awakening: Give your lover a signal to come out of hypnosis. It may be a count, such as from one to five. It may also be a set amount of time. For example, you may tell yourself that you will concentrate in hypnosis for twenty minutes and then awaken on your own, feeling wide-awake and alert. In the exercises in this book the cue is always, "when you awaken tomorrow morning."

If your lover wants you to awaken before that time, use the time cue, in twenty minutes you will awaken, or a count, when I count form one to five you will awaken. By the time I reach the count of five you will wide, awake and alert just like you are in the morning after a long refreshing sleep.
