How to Hypnotize Someone

Learn how to hypnotize someone.The best way to learn how to hypnotize someone is by taking a professional hypnosis or hypnotherapy course certified through a legitimate, recognized hypnosis organization (such as the National Guild of Hypnotists). The following are some instructions for recreational hypnosis.

A Few Warnings--Don't ask anyone to do anything that you wouldn't normally ask them to do outside of hypnosis. And don't put anyone in any situation that might be dangerous. Always act ethically and in the highest interest of yourself and your subject. These instructions are for recreational purposes only. This is not to be used for hypnotherapy.

Pre-Talk--Make sure the subject (that's the person who's going to be hypnotized) feels comfortable and has some basic understanding of hypnosis and what's going to happen. Establishing trust and rapport is an essential element to successful hypnosis. Explain to them what to expect from hypnosis.

  1. Tell them hypnosis is a natural everyday state of mind--very much like daydreaming.
  2. Let them know that they won't get "stuck" in hypnosis.
  3. That they'll be consciously aware the whole time.
  4. That they won't do anything that violates their moral or ethical codes.
  5. Tell them they're going to have a wonderful time.

Induction--Okay, have the subject seated in a comfortable chair or have them lay down on a couch. Once they're comfortably settled and you've had your pre-talk, you're ready to guide them into a hypnotic state. Talk slowly and gently in a reassuring way.

Final Notes--So now you know how to hypnotize someone. The more you practice, the better you'll get at it. Also, keep in mind that everyone is different. Some people are great subjects and will go into a deep state the first time. Others may take a few tries before they're able to relax enough to have a successful experience. If you really want to get good at hypnotizing, finding a good hypnosis course is your best bet. Over at Hypnosis Downloads they offer a free video course entitled Learn Hypnosis in Five Days.
