          HMI MISSION STATEMENT



It is the mission of HMI to continually explore, within
ourselves and others, how our subconscious mind can
influence our behavior, affect the events of our lives, and
empower us to achieve our dreams and goals. Our
philosophy is based on the belief that the subconscious
mind is a goal machine, dedicated and driven to the
fulfillment of a programmed path.

Our primary tenet is that all of the events of our lives,
including "luck," both good and bad, is a manifestation of
the energy that emanates from our subconscious mind.
This energy continually strives to fulfill the agenda for
which it is programmed. Through research, education,
and the clinical application of this tenet, HMI aspires to
better the world, by fostering a greater awareness of
these principles and the development of one's
subconscious mind to be more congruous with their
conscious desires.

DEFINITION OF HYPNOSIS

    Hypnosis is created by an overload of message units, disorganizing our
    inhibitory process (Critical Mind), triggering our fight/flight mechanism and
    ultimately creating a hypersuggestible state, providing access to the
    subconscious mind.



MODEL OF THE MIND

    When the infant is first brought into the world, he/she does not have the logic,
    reason, or the inhibitory process. To make their needs known, the child uses
    more primitive mechanisms. The child has a more primitive mind. Included in
    the primitive mind are the fight/flight mechanisms. As the child grows, it
    develops the inhibitory processes.

    How does the baby learn? There are only two fears that a baby is born with,
    the fear of falling and a fear of loud noise. Everything else is learned by
    association and identification.

    From age zero to approximately age eight, the child develops a library of
    these associations and identifications. He/she learns that some of these are
    good (positive) and some of these are bad (negative). These positive and
    negative associations form, what is referred to as our “life script." This life
    script is formed from what we know. The child does not yet know good from
    bad or right from wrong. He/she is only aware of the associations and
    identifications.

    Between the ages of eight and twelve, (approximately), we start to develop
    logic and reason. We are capable of making decisions and developing will
    power. This becomes our conscious mind, which represents 12% of our
    total mind power. The subconscious mind is made up of the remaining 88%
    of our total mind power.



MESSAGE UNITS

    Definition: All of the input sent to the brain by the environment, the physical
    body and the conscious and subconscious minds. When too many message
    units are received (as in a life-threatening emergency), the result is a state of
    overload disorganizing the critical mind.

HMI Distance Education School                                                    Class 1



FIGHT/FLIGHT REACTION

    Definition:
    A primitive and involuntary reaction that is triggered by a perceived sense of
    danger or during a state of anxiety, in order to defend oneself or to escape
    from danger.

    Primitive man survived by developing two basic instincts. These instincts are
    called Fight and Flight mechanisms. Man (and some creatures) had
    developed greater strength and aggression (fight) while others developed
    speed, agility and sensitivity toward their surroundings using their sense of
    smell, hearing and sight (flight). Creatures that were able to develop both fight
    and flight abilities survived to evolve, others became extinct.



 AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM

    There are two divisions of the autonomic nervous system:

    Sympathetic: Activated during the fight/flight mechanism.

    Parasympathetic: A self- regulating stabilizing system that brings us back to
    a state of balance.

    During sympathetic arousal, physiological changes occur, preparing the body
    for fight/flight. After the danger has passed, the parasympathetic system
    takes over to create a homeostasis (balance).



 IMPORTANT DIFFERENCES

    Hetero-hypnosis is a hypnotic state that is created by another person.

    Self-hypnosis is a hypnotic state that is self-created.

    Sleep and Hypnosis:

    Sleep is a state during which you are unconscious of what is going on.
    Hypnosis is a state during which you are consciously aware of what is
    happening around you.

    Another important difference is that during the sleep state we do not learn.

    Probably the most influential source of message units is the subconscious
    mind.

    When we have received an overload of message units, the critical mind is
    unable to process all the message units, which brings on the state of
    hypnosis. When we become overloaded, the subconscious mind takes over
    and begins to deal with knowns.



 CREATING THE STATE OF HYPNOSIS

    Hypnosis is created by the hypnotist in much the same way as the
    environment. The hypnotist uses a state of anxiety which leads to hypnosis.
    It is not created by a state of relaxation.

    Changes that occur during hypnosis as a result of the fight mechanism:

    1. Changes in breathing.
    2. Dryness of the lips and throat.
    3. Rapid eye movement.
    Once in hypnosis, the flight mechanism takes over, breathing becomes
    shallower and the body becomes more relaxed.

    Suggestibility can be defined as the manner in which an individual receives
    and interprets input (i.e., message units) or how the individual was
    communicated with from infancy to adulthood.



HOW SUGGESTIBILITY IS LEARNED

    Prior to 1967, hypnotists used one of three basic approaches to induce the
    hypnotic state. These were:

    1. Eye Fascination
    2. Authoritarian Approach
    3. Progressive Relaxation

    Unfortunately, most hypnotists still word their approaches with direct, literal
    suggestions. This did not and still does not work with approximately 50% of
    the population because direct, literal suggestions only work with one type of
    individual.

                                                                                           11
HMI Distance Education School                                                    Class 1


    Dr. Kappas found that there were different types of suggestibility. This
    explained why the direct, literal suggestions were not working with some of
    the population.

    Initially, learning is accomplished through our primary caretaker (e.g.,
    mother), from birth to approximately age five. From ages six to nine, the
    child’s suggestibility is also influenced by his peers, teachers, and others.
    From ages nine to fourteen, the secondary caretaker (e.g., father) begins to
    influence the child’s suggestibility.

    Every interpersonal message is made up of three parts:

    1. Verbal content.
    2. Extraverbal (non-spoken) content.
    3. The state of mind of the receiver
    If mother follows through with what she says to the child and her verbal and
    non verbal communication is congruent, the child learns direct, literal
    communication (i.e., physical). If mother does not follow through with what
    she says, the child receives incongruent messages and begins to look for the
    hidden meaning in what is being said (i.e., emotional).

    If mother disciplines (e.g. spanks) the child and then rewards (e.g., hugs,
    kisses, etc.) the child, the idea of physical sensations being rewarded is
    reinforced. If mother does not give any reward, the opposite can occur and
    ego sensations become repressed.

    The physical suggestible places their physical body out front and protects
    their emotions, particularly when fearing rejection. The emotional suggestible
    places defensive emotions out front (e.g., fear, embarrassment, discomfort) to
    protect their physical body and therefore protect their fear of loss of control.



EMOTIONAL SUGGESTIBILITY

    Definition: A suggestible behavior characterized by a high degree of
    responsiveness to inferred suggestions, affecting emotions and restriction of
    physical body responses; usually associated with hypnoidal depth. Thus, the
    emotional suggestible person learns more by inference than by direct, literal
    suggestions.

HMI Distance Education School                                                    Class 1


  PHYSICAL SUGGESTIBILITY

    Definition: A suggestible behavior characterized by a high degree of
    responsiveness to literal suggestions, affecting the body and restriction of
    emotional responses; usually associated with cataleptic stages or deeper.

    A physical suggestible is right-brain dominant, while an emotional suggestible
    is left-brain dominant.



 SOMNAMBULIST

    A somnambulist is an individual who has 50/50 suggestibility (i.e., 50%
    physical suggestible, 50% emotional suggestible). This type will respond
    equally well to all suggestions, both direct and inferred, affecting both the
    body and the emotions.



 INTELLECTUAL SUGGESTIBLE

    This type of person is very analytical, with a high percentage of emotional
    suggestibility. The intellectual suggestible fears being controlled by the
    hypnotist, and is constantly trying to analyze, reject or rationalize everything
    the hypnotist says. The induction of choice for this type of suggestibility is the
    “Auto-dual” method, which will be discussed in Class #4.



HOW WE COMMUNICATE

    The physical suggestible individual learns literally and directly, but speaks in
    metaphors and inferences. The emotional suggestible learns indirectly and
    inferentially, but speaks directly and literally.

    Example: Would you tell me your name?

    The Physical would respond Yes.
    The Emotional would respond by telling you their name.

    FINGER-SPREADING TEST FOR SUGGESTIBILITY


The finger-spreading is used on the client in the first session to determine emotional
and physical suggestibility. Do not let your client ask questions during the test. If
they do start talking, tell them it is a silent suggestibility test and it is important for
them to just observe the process and see what happens.

It does not matter which arm you start with, however, it will be important to watch the
“speed” of the finger-spreading and how “wide” the fingers move apart. You will be
able to determine whether the client is emotional or physical suggestible from the
results.


       1. Position the client in a chair sitting up straight with their feet flat on the
          floor and hands on their legs. Make sure they take their glasses off.

       2. Explain that you are going to “Test Suggestibility.”

              “I am going to test your suggestibility to see if you are more left brain or
              right brain dominant in how you respond to suggestions. This is one
              test that you cannot pass or fail so don’t help me in any way.”

       3. Lift up the client’s arm and hand. Place the palm in front of the face about
          10 inches away, fingers up straight and above eye level. Firmly hold the
          elbow and hand, tap the middle finger (3 to 4) times and say:

              “I want you to stare at your middle finger and when I let go of your
              hand your fingers will begin to separate.” (Let go of elbow and hand)

              “Separating, separating, wider and wider, farther and farther apart.”

          Repeat words out loud (3) times to test PHYSICAL SUGGESTIBILITY.

       4. Put the hand down and lift up the other arm and hand. Place the palm in
          front of the face about 10 inches away, the fingers up straight and above
          eye level. Firmly hold the client’s elbow and hand and tap the middle
          finger (3 to 4) times then let go.

           Repeat words silently (3) times to test EMOTIONAL SUGGESTIBILITY.

          Put the hand down and tell client they did very good with each
          suggestibility test to eliminate fear or doubt.

          FINGER-SPREADING CONVERSION TO HYPNOSIS


1.   Position the client in a chair sitting up straight with their feet flat on the floor and hands on their
     legs. Make sure they take their glasses off.

2.   Lift up the client’s arm and hand. Place the palm in front of the face about 10 inches away,
     fingers up straight and above eye level. Firmly hold the elbow and hand, tap the middle finger
     (3 to 4) times and say:

         “I want you to stare at your middle finger and when I let go of your hand your fingers will
         begin to separate… (Let go of elbow and hand)

         Separating, separating, wider and wider, farther and farther apart, separating, separating,
         wider and wider, farther and farther apart…”

         “Now as your fingers continue to separate…I want you to tell me if you think it is your hand
         or your arm that is starting to pull inward towards your face. Is it the hand or arm that is
         pulling inward.” (Wait for response)

3.   Physiological changes: Remember to talk about the body reactions.

         “Good… now the (hand/arm) will continue to pull in closer and closer towards your face as
         your fingers continue to separate... and when you begin to notice your breathing starting to
         get deeper and you are taking in more oxygen… nod your head “Yes” and let me know…”
         (Wait for response)

         “When you notice your eyelids starting to blink and become heavy nod your head “YES”
         and let me know… and the more your eyes blink the heavier they will become and the
         heavier they become the more your eyes will blink… becoming so heavy, so heavy now…
         they much rather preferred to stay closed… Your (hand/arm) continues to pull in closer
         and closer to your face, your breathing is getting deeper and your eyes are feeling heavier
         with every breath that you take in… heavier and heavier as the (hand/arm) pulls in
         towards the face.”

     (Repeat suggestions until the hand comes in to touch the face)

         “When your (hand/arm) comes all the way in to touch your face… the moment you make
         skin contact your eyes will close and you will reach your peak of suggestibility and enter
         the hypnotic sleep…”

4.   When they make skin contact say DEEP SLEEP.

         (Post-Hypnotic Suggestion) “Each and every time I suggest the words Deep Sleep to you
         for the purpose of hypnosis, you will enter this state of hypnosis quickly, calmly and deeply
         and the physical body will relax…”

5.   Now put the hand down on their leg and count from (5 to 0) to deepen.


          SUGGESTIBILITY QUESTIONNAIRE

              “Yes” answers to Questionnaire #1 are indicative of Physical Suggestibility.

              “Yes” answers to Questionnaire #2 are indicative of Emotional Suggestibility.




          HOMEWORK BEFORE CLASS #2

              1. Take the Suggestibility Questionnaire yourself and score it.

              2. Read Chapters One and Two in the Professional Hypnotism Manual.

              3. Practice the “Finger-Spreading Test."

 INHIBITION

  Definition:
  Unconscious defense against forbidden, unacceptable conditions (learned)
  and instinctual drives or impulses.

  Originally, man functioned completely on basic instincts. He did not have
  inhibitions. Modesty, privacy and sexual taboos were some of the earlier
  inhibitions to develop.

  As man evolved, he came to the realization that he did not have to act on
  every impulse that confronted him. He then started to develop conscious
  control.

  At this point the fight mechanism started to become anxiety. He started to feel
  it in his body. The modern way of looking at this is reaction versus action.

  The flight mechanism also developed a modern way of coping. This can be
  seen as repression versus depression. The modern flight mechanism is
  depression.



DREAMS

  There are three types of dreams classified by the stage of the night in which
  they occur. These are:

  Processing (Wishful Thinking Stage) - The mind’s attempts to sort and store
  the thoughts of the day.

  Predictive (Precognitive Stage) - The mind’s attempt to predict the events of
  the future.

  Venting (Venting Stage) - The mind’s attempt to vent, or release, the
  overload of message units accumulated during the day.

  The most important of these three types are the dreams which occur during
  the venting stage.

PAIN - PLEASURE

  Every organism will choose pleasure over pain. Unknowns represent pain to
  the subconscious mind. An unknown is a physical or psychological threat that
  has never been experienced before; therefore, it carries no identification or
  association. It is strange to the subconscious mind.

  Knowns represent pleasure. A known is something that we have associated
  or identified before. It may be either positive or negative but will be accepted
  by the subconscious because it has been experienced before. It might not be
  a pleasurable experience but it represents pleasure because it is known.
  Negatives are accepted by the subconscious because they are known.



DYNAMICS OF THE SUGGESTIONS

  In the case of a physical suggestible, message units are taken in literally as a
  thought. It then becomes an image, then a physical feeling and, finally, an
  emotional response.

  An Emotional takes in message units as a thought. The thought, then
  becomes an image, then an emotional feeling and, finally, a physical reaction.

  When giving suggestions to a Physical, work on the conflict literally. With an
  emotional, work on what they are deprived of by the conflict. The clue to
  suggestions with an emotional is finding out how they feel.


  During hypnosis, the critical area of the mind is in a state of abeyance. It does
  not have the chance nor desire to fight the suggestions and suggestive ideas
  entering the subconscious mind.

  Suggestibility is testable! Any attempt to place someone in the state of
  hypnosis without testing their suggestibility is only setting yourself up for
  failure.



CONVERSION TO HYPNOSIS

  A suggestibility test may be used to convert a subject into hypnosis. The
  purpose of a suggestibility test is:

     HMI Distance Education School                                                  Class 2


1.     To determine the degree of physical or emotional suggestibility.

2.     To convert the subject to hypnosis without their being consciously aware of it.

       During the suggestibility test the hypnotist is building up message units.

       The hypnotist should begin all suggestibility tests by saying “What I am going
       to do is to test your suggestibility. You cannot pass or fail this test, so don’t
       help or hinder me in any way.”



 VISUALIZE VERSUS IMAGINE

       Some subjects are much more visual than other subjects. They are able to
       visualize and see pictures in their mind with greater ease. The hypnotist can
       say things such as “Visualize" or "see yourself in this scene". The hypnotist
       may also use phrases such as “Imagine yourself in this scene.”



 INDUCTIONS

       The primary induction used is the arm-raising. The other inductions are used
       as secondary ones.



 PRE-INDUCTION

       Definition: An introduction to hypnosis to prepare the subject for the
       induction. It should include an explanation of hypnosis and an idea of what
       the subject can expect to experience in the state.

          There are two main purposes to the pre-induction:

          1. Dispel misconceptions and fears.
          2. Build expectation and rapport.
       Never use the word cure. It implies a medical treatment. Hypnotists treat
       many things but never claim to cure anything.

       TIP: Create a scripted pre-induction explanation that serves the two purposes
       above. Practice explaining hypnosis with your friends and relatives. Take it
       with you to practicums. Your explanation should take no more than three
       minutes. This is a very important element of the hypnosis session.

           INFERRED ARM-RAISING IN 10 STEPS

1) Position client sitting up in the chair with their feet on the floor and arm on the table

           Make sure their glasses are off and they have no gum in their mouth
           Take client’s hand and lift up to touch the face and feel the palm for sweat
           Have them look directly at you as you ask them questions to test suggestibility

2) Explain that you are going to “Test Suggestibility”

“I am going to ask you a few questions to test your suggestibility to see if you are more left brain or right
brain dominant in how you respond to suggestions. This is one test that you cannot pass or fail so don’t
help me in any way. Everything tells me a story.”

“You don’t need to talk during this test… If the answer is YES just nod your head “yes”… if it is NO then
shake your head “no”… if you don’t know the answer just stare at me… I will find the answers in your
eyes… O.K?”

3) Ask a series of “Suggestibility Questions” (last 2 questions are the most important)

      Have you ever walked or talked in your sleep?
      Have you ever woken up at night and felt you couldn’t move your body or talk?
      After having an argument with someone, do you ever think of what you could have or should have
       said?
      If you were to think about biting into a sour lemon would your mouth begin to water?
      Can you visualize – can you picture things in your mind?
      Can you imagine – can you remember what images look like?

“Now take a look at your arm, from the elbow down to your finger tips, get a good picture of it and close
your eyes. Visualize or Imagine your arm and hand in your mind. When you can remember what they
look like nod your head yes and let me know.” (wait for response)

4) Physiological Changes in Body

“Now as you begin to enter the hypnotic state you will notice a series of changes taking place in your
body. “I” will notice them before you do and when “YOU” become aware of them just nod your head
“yes” and let me know O.K?”

“The first change that takes place is that your breathing may have a tendency to grow deeper as your
body takes in more oxygen. When you begin to notice your breathing getting deeper and deeper just nod
your head “yes” and let me know.” (wait for response)

“Your lips, throat and mouth will begin to feel dry and you may have an urge to swallow. When you
notice this - nod your head “yes” and let me know. This is very natural and normal.” (wait for response)

“Now focus on your eyes and your eyelids. Do you notice that little fluttering sensation of your eyes
moving underneath your eyelids? We are now entering the first stage of hypnosis.

5) Conversion into Hypnosis: Pay attention to how fast or slow arm is moving

“Now bring your attention down to your elbow… the one that is pressing down on the table. As your elbow
presses down the muscles in the upper arm will begin to tighten and pull,
and from your elbow down to your finger tips your lower arm and hand will begin to lift and rise, higher
and higher, lighter and lighter, just as light as a feather… lifting and rising, pulling and jerking, moving up
off the table, higher and higher, lighter and lighter, light as a feather.”

“We now will tie this into your breathing. With every breath you take in your arm and hand will lift and rise,
going up higher and higher, lighter and lighter, pulling up towards your face.”

   CONTINUE TO SAY “POWER WORDS” FOR THE ARM AND HAND TO MOVE UP:
   ex: “lifting, rising, higher, lighter, pulling, jerking, moving up, with every breath now”

* (Misdirection for Overload)

“Now as your arm and hand continues to lift and rise, your body begins to sink deeper down into the chair,
your feet press harder into the floor, and the hand on your leg may even begin to feel heavier… (pause) all
the while your arm and hand continues to lift and rise, higher and higher, lighter and lighter… just lifting
and rising, pulling in towards the face.”

   Repeat the “POWER WORDS” until the hand is (½) way to the face then say:

“Now at this time you may begin to notice that your “hand” starts to twist and turn inward at the wrist. It’s
almost as if there is a magnetic pull of your hand coming in to your face… and your head dropping down
to meet your hand. It's now a twisting and turning, lifting and rising, pulling and jerking sensation that goes
up… higher and higher, lighter and lighter, just as light as a feather…

With every inhale arm and hand goes up… and on the exhale the head begins to drop down now to meet
the hand… getting heavier and heavier, heavier and heavier with every breath… the hand and head
continue pulling in closer and closer together.”

   Repeat the “POWER WORDS” until the hand is (6) inches from the face then say:

“Now when your hand comes all the way up to touch your face… the moment you make skin contact you
will reach your peak of suggestibility and enter the hypnotic sleep.”

   When hand touches the face – SNAP FINGERS and say “DEEP SLEEP”


6) Post–Hypnotic Suggestion for “DEEP SLEEP”

 “Each and every time I suggest the words Deep Sleep to you, for the purpose of hypnosis and with your
permission, you will enter this state of hypnosis very quickly, calmly and deeply and the physical body will
relax.” (snap fingers)

(Gently take the hand and put it down on the table and count down from 5 to 0)

“I will now use a count from 5 backwards down to 0. With each and every count, the mind and body
allows you to enter the hypnotic sleep more deeply at ZERO…”


“Starting with the count of 5… we are beginning to go down now… deeper and deeper into the state of
hypnosis...”

4 - physically releasing, relaxing and letting go
3 – is an emotional calmness
2 - you are mentally relaxing now
1 - going deeper and deeper

And Zero is “DEEP SLEEP” (snap fingers)

(Repeat Post-Hypnotic Suggestion) “Each and every time I suggest the words Deep Sleep to you, for
the purpose of hypnosis, you will enter this state of hypnosis very quickly, calmly and deeply and the
physical body will relax…” (snap fingers)


7) Deepening Techniques (use as many as you can for greater depth)

       * Challenges: (the hand is stuck to the face (or) the eyes are stuck together)
       * Progressive Relaxation: (head to feet when sitting up / feet to head when in recliner)
       * Staircase: (Counting down from 20 to 0 with two secure handrails)
       * Reactional Hypnosis: (eyes open – deep sleep – eyes open – deep sleep)


8) Give Positive Suggestions for Therapy (example)

“You will have a greater feeling of success, happiness and confidence in all areas of your life and this
feeling will increase each and every day.” (snap fingers)


9) Count Out of Hypnosis

“It is now time to come back up out of the state of hypnosis feeling very calm and relaxed.
 I will reverse the count from (0 to 5) and with each count you begin to feel more alert and awake with a
positive sense of well being.”

Zero – Let’s shut that door to the subconscious mind to block all negatives

1 – slowly and calmly coming up out of the state of hypnosis now
2 – physically aware and mentally alert
3 - coming up even higher now
4 – eyes beginning to open and
5 - EYES OPEN and WIDE AWAKE

1 - 2 – 3 – 4 - 5 EYES OPEN and WIDE AWAKE


10) Do a Finger-Spread Conversion to test for re-hypnosis:

Now lift up the client’s arm and hand. Position it for a finger-spread conversion and have the client re-
enter the state of hypnosis for reinforcement. (see finger-spread conversion handout)

(After the finger-spread conversion is complete. Count the client out from 1 to 5 many times until
fully awake)




              RAPPORT

       Twenty-five percent of the population is naturally suggestible to you at any time.
       Therefore, you will automatically have rapport with them.

 DOMINANT LAWS OF SUGGESTIBILITY

      There are five basic laws of suggestibility, the proper application of which
      will allow the hypnotist to utilize man’s natural suggestibility to its fullest. It
      is man’s propensity toward the emotions of fear and greed that make him
      so susceptible to the influence of these laws.

      Fear suppressed our ability to make a decision. As a result any decision
      made for us during the fear reaction becomes the road of least resistance
      and is readily accepted by the subconscious mind. Greed brings about a
      state of urgency and causes us to react without logical thinking.

      Keep these two emotions in mind when referring to the Laws of
      Suggestibility. The Laws are:

      1.   The Law of Reverse Action.
      2.   The Law of Repetition.
      3.   The Law of Dominance.
      4.   The Law of Delayed Action.
      5.   The Law of Association.

      The most common law is the Law of Reverse Action, sometimes referred
      to as the Reverse Psychology. A subject will respond to the stronger part
      of a suggestion, if the alternative presented is considerably weaker. For
      example, in the case of an eye challenge, “Your eyes are stuck. You
      cannot open them. The harder you try, the more difficult it becomes.”

      The Law of Repetition is represented in the fact that the more we do
      something, the better we become at it.     By repeating suggestions in
      hypnosis, the suggestive idea becomes stronger.

      An example of the Law of Dominance is the suggestion of deep sleep.
      These words spoken in an authoritative tone represent a command to the
      subject, who is apt to accept a suggestion from an authority figure (e.g.,
      the hypnotist).

      The Law of Delayed Action is when a suggestive idea is inferred, the
      subject will react to it whenever a jogging condition or situation that has
      been used in the original suggestive idea presents itself.

      The Law of Association simply put is, whenever we repeatedly respond
      to a particular stimulus in the presence of another, we will soon begin to
      associate one with the other. Whenever either stimulus is present, the

      other is recalled. The post-suggestion to re-hypnosis works under this
      law.

PATTERN OF THERAPY

      All hypnotherapy follows the same basic pattern. First, the client is
      allowed to guide the discussion. During this initial phase, the client
      generally does not vent negative emotions. Second, in the hypnotic state,
      all the positive suggestions for change are placed in the subconscious
      mind, which allows the client to feel better.



 REACTIONAL HYPNOSIS

      Definition: Repeatedly awakening the subject and re-hypnotizing this
      person with a post-suggestion to re-hypnosis. This is an effective method
      of achieving depth in hypnosis.



 SHOCK INDUCTION

      SHOCK INDICTION IS USED PRIMARILY IN EMERGENCY
      SITUATIONS ONLY. It can be used, for example, in a hospital or on a
      battlefield. It can also be used in therapy to “jar” the subject.



 FAIT ACCOMPLI

      Fait accompli is the concept that, if you pretend and go along with the
      hypnotist in any way, you will end up being in the hypnotic state. The
      pretense breaks the defense.

      As a hypnotist, you can use this by telling the subject to just “Pretend to go
      along with this.” This approach works well with emotional subjects.

                  Arm-Raising Induction/Progressive Relaxation

Theory of Mind (Pre-Induction): Introduce hypnosis, dispel fears, overload and find the hook.

Position Client in Chair: Glasses off-sit up and put feet flat on floor-the hands on legs.

Test Suggestibility: Use the finger-spread or heavy-light to test degree of E & P suggestibility.

Re- Position Client in Chair: One hand and arm on table, the other on the leg.

Lift Hand to Face: Feel for sweating on palm. Is arm stiff or relaxed? Can it touch the face?

Suggestibility Questionnaire: Ask questions with non-verbal answers. Nod head “yes” or “no”
Last 2 questions to ask: “Can you visualize? Can you imagine?”

Have Client Look at Hand on Table: Close eyes and visualize or imagine hand in the mind.

Physiological Changes in Body: Breathing gets deeper, dryness in mouth and throat, eyes will
begin to flutter and the elbow presses down on the table.

Inferred Arm-Raise Induction: The arm and hand begins to lift and rise up off the table to touch
the head. Tie this into the breathing. On the inhale, the arm/hand goes up. On the exhale, the
head begins to drop down. When the hand is halfway to face, have it start to twist and turn
inward.

Power Words: “Lifting, rising, higher and higher, lighter and lighter-just as light as a feather,
pulling, jerking and moving up with every breath you take in…”

Hand Touches the Face: Reach the peak of your suggestibility and “DEEP SLEEP” (Snap).

Post-Hypnotic Suggestion: “Each and every time I suggest the words Deep Sleep to you, for
the purpose of hypnosis and with your permission, you will enter this state of hypnosis quickly,
calmly and deeply and the physical body relaxes.” (Repeat this many times.)

Use a Challenge and Count Down 5 – 0.

Progressive Relaxation: Tie this into the breathing. Create calmness and comfort in client.
   (In recliner: Start from feet and go the top of head.)
   (In chair: Start from the head and go down to the feet.)

Count 5 – 0 to deepen: Repeat post-hypnotic suggestion of “Deep Sleep.”

Arm rigidity / Staircase / Other Deepening Techniques:

Give Positive Suggestions for Therapy:

Take Out of Hypnosis: Count 0–5, then use a “finger-spread” conversion for re-hypnosis.

Count Out Completely: Count 0-5 one time, then count 1-5 a few times until client is fully alert.

SCALE OF IMAGINATION

      The goal during the first session is to build enough message units so that
      the subject is taken to either the first, second or third stage of
      somnambulism. It is important during the first session to peak the
      subject’s suggestibility so that a full conversion is obtained. The subject
      will later automatically revert back to his/her normal suggestible state.
      However, the hypnotist can induce somnambulism at a later date, if
      necessary.



 DEPTH

      There are three basic levels of hypnosis:

         Hypnoidal - Characterized by rapid eye movement (REM). It is the
         lightest stage of hypnotic sleep.

         Cataleptic- Characterized by the eyes moving from side to side. It
         is the medium stage.

         Somnambulism - Characterized by the eyes rolling up underneath
         the   eyelids. This is the deepest stage of hypnosis.

      There are three stages of somnambulism:

         A first-stage somnambulist will exhibit between 20% and 40%
         spontaneous amnesia.

         A second-stage somnambulist will exhibit approximately 60%
         spontaneous amnesia.

         A third-stage somnambulist (the deepest subject) will respond to all
         types of suggestions. This subject will exhibit 80% or more
         spontaneous amnesia; they will remember almost nothing that
         occurred while in hypnosis.

 HOMEWORK BEFORE CLASS # 4
          1.    Read the chapter in your textbook on deepening techniques.
                Practice the techniques you have learned so far, especially the

          PROGRESSIVE RELAXATION

Sit back in your chair. Uncross your legs. Close your eyes. Now begin breathing very
deeply, taking five deep breaths, and with every breath you exhale, you will become more
deeply relaxed.

After the fifth breath, concentrate on the weight of your shoes. Your shoes, being foreign to
your normal body weight, will begin to feel heavy, and this heavy relaxation, from your toes
to your heels to your ankles, will become very prominent. You are now feeling this heavy
relaxation moving upward into the calves of your legs…feeling the weight of your legs
pushing down, heavier, and heavier…and feeling your legs relaxing deeply…deeply
relaxing…and this heavy relaxation moves into the knees, as you concentrate only on my
voice.

Pay no attention to any sound outside except for the sound of my voice, for these sounds
are everyday sounds of life and cannot distract or disturb you, but will tend to relax you and
allow you to go even deeper into this deep, heavy relaxation.

Now feel the relaxation moving upward into your thighs and hips and through the mid-
section of your body…feel the stomach muscles relaxing…deeply relaxing…and the entire
chest area becomes saturated with the relaxation. Breathing becomes very deep, gentle,
and rhythmic, and the drowsy, sleepy, daydreaming feeling of relaxation takes over…
LETTING GO!...drifting down, deeper and deeper, and your arms, hand and fingers are
relaxing…feeling a numb, pleasant, tingling feeling through your fingers, as this relaxation
grows deeper and deeper.

Neck muscles are relaxing, and all the little muscles in the scalp are letting go, feeling as if
the blood is circulating very close to the skin. This relaxation moves down over your
forehead and down over your eyelids and your jaw muscles relax deeply…deeply
relaxing…and growing heavier.

And as I count from five down to zero, each count will represent deep relaxation, and you
will feel the body relaxing even more and letting go…deeper and deeper…and when I reach
zero,       you       will     go     deep        asleep.         Now,       FIVE…letting
go…FOUR…THREE…TWO…ONE…ZERO…[snap your fingers] DEEP ASLEEP!

 AUTO-DUAL INDUCTION

      This is an induction that works very well with the intellectually suggestible
      subject. Have the subject repeat everything the hypnotist is saying. This
      keeps the intellectual suggestible subject from analyzing what is
      happening. This may be used as a primary induction with an intellectual
      suggestible, but may also be used as a secondary induction with other
      subjects.



 SELF-HYPNOSIS

      The basic difference between hetero-hypnosis and self-hypnosis is that
      hetero-hypnosis involves the disorganization of the inhibitory processes,
      whereas self-hypnosis requires the organization of the inhibitory
      processes.

            Two laws that govern self-hypnosis are:

            The Law of Repetition - By doing it over and over, you become
            better at it.

            The Law of Association - The idea of associating to the state and
            to the keys that you use.



  TREATMENT AND SELF-HYPNOSIS

      Self-hypnosis is not used to “cure” a problem. You do not treat yourself. It
      may be used effectively for relaxation, stress control, and other non-
      therapeutic reasons, such as, general self-improvement or sports
      improvement.



DEBUNKING MYTHS SURROUNDING SELF-HYPNOSIS

      Anytime a tape is used, or someone else’s words (e.g., from a book) are
      used, the hypnosis is hetero-hypnosis rather than true self-hypnosis
      because the subject is still being hypnotized by someone else.

 SELF-HYPNOSIS AND MEDITATION

      Self-hypnosis is the process of organizing your thoughts to vent, release
      and relax. Meditation is the process of “clearing” your thoughts.



 SELF-HYPNOSIS KEYS

      These are words that you relate to, both physically and emotionally, that
      will work the best to trigger the self-hypnosis state.

      Physical Keys - Words that you relate to the most physically.

                Heavy
                Floating
                Relaxation
                Lightness
                Loose
                Tingling
                Limp

      Emotional Keys - A word that you respond or relate to emotionally.

                Calmness
                Confidence
                Success
                Happiness
                Joy
                Contentment
                Peace

      Intellectual Key - A universal key for everyone.

                 Deep Sleep

 TIME DISTORTION

      When in hypnosis, time distortion can take place. It may manifest as
      either expansion or contraction. Twenty minutes may seem as short as
      five or as long as an hour.



 SELF-HYPNOSIS NOTES

      Never go into self-hypnosis with a strong negative attitude. Give yourself
      an alternative so that when you open the door to your subconscious mind,
      you are not taking all the negatives in with you.

      When formulating suggestions do not use negative words or feelings, such
      as “I will not” or “I can not.” Phrase your suggestions in a positive manner.

      Also, do not work on too many suggestions at one time. Work on only one
      or two suggestions at a time, allowing the law of repetition to work.



 LAW OF ASSOCIATION AND SELF-HYPNOSIS

      We are associating a calm state (Self-hypnosis) with a situation that
      normally elicits anxiety. Relaxation and tension cannot co-exist in the
      body. Therefore, while relaxed, you are getting rid of tension.



 HOMEWORK

      1. Practice self-hypnosis.

      2. Read Chapter Ten in The Professional Hypnotism Manual.

 DRUGS AND ALCOHOL

      EFFECTS DURING HYPNOSIS: Certain drugs enhance hypnosis while
      others suppress it. Marijuana and alcohol enhance physical suggestibility,
      while Cocaine enhances emotional suggestibility. Tranquilizers destroy
      ego sensations and therefore, subjects using them are difficult to treat.

      TREATMENT: Hypnosis is a very effective tool when used in conjunction
      with a client’s “12-step” or other recovery treatment program. Alcoholism
      and drug addiction cannot be “cured” with hypnosis.

DYNAMICS OF HYPNOSIS

      The basic idea is to influence the subject to respond to your suggestions.
      You are constantly testing the subject to determine how and why the
      subject responds in a certain way.

      The first things you want to have happen when testing a subject is to have
      the subject follow your directions. By getting them to respond positively to
      conscious input, the subject will be better able to respond positively to
      unconscious input.

      While talking to the subject, you are creating an overload mechanism in
      the subject’s mind. They are building expectation and, therefore, creating
      greater overload.

      An important point is to know whether or not the subject can visualize. If
      the subject cannot visualize, have them imagine or pretend.

      By pointing out the physiological changes, the hypnotist is creating more
      “yes “or positive messages.

      By simulating somnambulism in the induction (i.e. eyeballs rolling up
      underneath the eyelids), you can artificially create the somnambulistic
      state.

      If the subject opens his eyes during the induction, this will increase the
      number of message units by increasing the stimuli of visual sensations.

      During the arm-raising induction, the fight/flight mechanism is used. While
      the subject’s hand and arm are moving toward the face you can, by telling
      the subject that this is happening, cause the subject to fight it, which will

      create even more anxiety, until the hand touches the face and the subject
      retreats into hypnosis.

      When doing a challenge, test the challenge first so that you know the
      challenge will work. Do not challenge a subject if the challenge is going to
      fail.

      At each stage of hypnosis, add a post suggestion to re-hypnosis. This will
      allow you to bring the subject back to that level of hypnosis.

      Paradox - A reversal (e.g. "the harder you try, the more difficult it
      becomes") is the strongest suggestion you can give next to the post
      suggestion to re-hypnosis.

      Power Words. - When you want to overload the subject, use power words
      such as lifting, rising, higher, jerking, etc.



 HANDWRITING

      Handwriting is an unconscious process. This is also known as an
      ideomotor response. You are what you write. What you change in the
      handwriting is what you will become. Handwriting analysis is the quickest
      approach to diagnosing emotional and physical suggestibility and
      sexuality.



 FIRST SESSION

      The first session is the most important session of the entire therapy. Most
      therapists lose at least 50% of their clients after the first session.
      Therefore, it is important to have the client know that you understand them
      and their problem.



 FIRST SESSION WITH FLORENCE HENDERSON

      Dr. Kappas: What would you like to work on, Florence?

      Florence: Well, I’m a performer, and during my concerts and personal
      appearances I would like to be more relaxed on stage without losing
      energy, and I would like to have more fun while I’m working.

      Dr. Kappas: All right.

      This is a very common thing that many entertainers would like.
      Surprisingly enough, most entertainers are very nervous when they first
      perform. Some are nervous even after the first performance. Some are
      so nervous that they shake before a performance, and their hands get
      cold and wet. This is a big problem with a lot of performers. Top
      performers. It is because most are Emotional sexual that have this fear.
      The Physicals are usually more comfortable. Florence is a Physical and
      she has a lot of comfort, but she wants more comfort. She wants to have
      fun when she is out there. Listen to the words she gave me, because I’m
      going to throw a lot of those words back to her in therapy.

      The first thing I am going to do is test her suggestibility to see what it is.
      Again, I’m going to give her some quick instructions.

      Move forward in the chair. A little more. Okay. Sit very straight in the
      chair, feet flat on the floor. Right hand on your right leg, left hand on the
      table. Okay. The hand in this position, right here.

      If a subject is holding their hand flat like this on the table, you have a lot of
      surface. It takes a lot more suggestions to break the surface and get the
      hand up. I may have to have her go like this [Demonstrates].

      Relax the hand with the fingers in this position.

      Less surface, easier to get up. Sometimes, you get a suction and won’t
      be able to get the hand up. I have her arm in this position. I can go back
      a little bit, but I stretch it out a little, because the closer in you are, the
      more you can tighten control. The further out the arm, the less you can
      control. If you were to imagine your hand out there, just like Florence’s,
      and you were saying, “Which finger is the easiest to lift?” I have to use
      less muscles to lift the index finger than any other. What I would do in this
      particular induction I see she has some physical and emotional, so I’ll test
      something.

      What I want you to do with this particular finger, is I want you to go like
      this. Just keep doing that. Okay.

      What I’m doing right now is I’m getting the mind to start accepting an idea.

      Florence, I want you to look this way and keep the finger doing that. The
      instant you feel that finger is starting to move up and not going down
      anymore, I want you to shake your head, okay? I’ll ask you a series of
      questions and you just answer yes or no. You don’t verbalize. Don’t talk
      at all until I ask you to. Now, if I ask you a question that you don’t
      understand, you stare at me and let me try to find it, okay?

      Now, Florence, as a child, were you ever told you walked in your sleep?


      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: Did you ever wake up in the middle of the night from a
      dream and felt you couldn’t move your body or talk?

      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: When you are involved in an argument with someone, and
      after the argument was over, do you have a tendency to reiterate what
      was said and think you should be saying something different?

      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: Do you have ease in expressing what you feel and think
      emotionally?

      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: Do you have a need to hear what people feel about you?

      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: Is children an important process of life in your mind?

      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: Now, have you ever hallucinated or seen objects or images
      that were not there?

      Florence: (Shakes her head no).

      Dr. Kappas: When your eyes are closed, can you visualize or create an
      image, or something?

      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: Good. Close your eyes and look toward that finger.

      Notice the finger has stopped and it stopped a long time ago. What that
      finger told me was, that it is when Florence started to go into hypnosis. I
      have given her mind an idea. I put a suggestion in. When the finger
      stopped, and started to go up, that is when it started to happen. Right
      now, I would start to overload the mechanism in her mind. While I’m

      talking, I’m giving her overload suggestions. In a few moments, you will
      begin to feel a series of changes take place. The first thing to feel is a
      little pressure on your elbow pushing down. Shake your head yes when
      you feel that.

      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: Now, you feel your breathing changing, your body needing
      more oxygen. Shake your head yes when you feel that.

      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: Lips and throat dry, urge to swallow. You will begin to feel
      the eyes having a tendency to move upward under the eyelids. Shake
      your head yes when you feel that.

      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: And the hand continually goes up, lifting, rising, jerking,
      pulling up higher and higher, lighter and lighter, as light as a feather. Now
      in a few moments, you will also begin to feel a twisting turning motion at
      the wrist as the palm of the hand tries to turn inward. Shake you head
      again when you feel that.

      Florence: (Shakes her head yes).

      Dr. Kappas: You will feel the hand and the arm moving toward your face.
      Now as the hand and the arm move toward your face, you will feel the
      biceps muscle tightening. As it pulls closer and closer, you will feel the
      head being drawn to your hand, your hand to your face. And your hand
      and your face will be drawn closer and closer together until you feel the
      contact. When you feel contact you will reach the peak of suggestibility
      and enter the hypnotic sleep. [Snaps fingers] You will keep going deeper
      and deeper into the hypnotic sleep. Each time I suggest sleep, you will
      sleep quickly, soundly, and deeply. The physical body will relax. Now in a
      few moments what I am going to do is ask you to open your eyes. I want
      you to look directly at me. Now.

      That’s fine. What I want you to do, Florence, is to put your arm down and
      move to the chair.

      I did not bring her out of hypnosis. I just asked her to open her eyes. The
      next thing I do is to overload the mind and take her a step deeper into
      hypnosis. Again, it is a series of suggestive ideas that I give, getting her
      to follow instructions again.

      I want you to push back, get as comfortable as possible. Eyes are closed
      and take three deep breaths.

      Now I go into a normal progressive relaxation. All this does is send
      message units. The post suggestion is what is going to work. Watch the
      face, the eyes, the entire body.

      Your concentration draws to your feet, your legs, and from your toes to
      your knees. You will become aware of your legs relaxing. The relaxation
      begins to move up, into the thighs, the hips, relaxing. And the stomach
      muscles relaxing. The relaxation moves upward, in through the solar
      plexus, across the chest area, in through your shoulders, and moving
      down through your arms, your hands and fingers, and the neck muscles
      relaxing. The relaxation keeps moving up, in through the scalp and across
      the forehead, and down over the eyelids, facial muscles and jaw muscles.
      And the physical body relaxing deeply, completely. With every breath.

      Now, as I count down from five back to zero, each count your body
      prepares you to enter the hypnotic sleep more deeply at zero. Now, five -
      four - three - two - one - zero. Deeper asleep.

      Watch the eyes. You can see the white of the eyes underneath. The
      eyes are trying to roll up. At this particular point, I have to draw the
      subject to me. Privately, it is a lot easier, but I have to use the mechanics
      to draw the subject to me. Once you isolate the subject from the group,
      the subject is ready for therapy. So what I would do is place my hand on
      her forehead and finger on her temple, placing pressure on her temple.

      Now your head is going to have a tendency to push toward my thumb.
      Now you are going deeper. As the head turns, you are going deeper and
      deeper and deeper. Now hold it here. Each time I suggest sleep you are
      going to sleep quickly, soundly, and deeply and the physical body will
      relax. The physical body is relaxing. Tension and pressures are gone.
      I’m going to move the right hand, and relax it and go deeper.

      I want to see how hypnotized the subject is. Is the subject letting go
      completely? If the subject isn’t very hypnotized, then I would take the
      tensions out of the body. I’ll grab the arm, I’ll pull the hand, and tell the
      subject…

      What I am going to do is take all the tension out of the body. All of them.
      And I’m going to put them into the right arm. You will feel the muscles
      tightening, the elbow locking. It will be just like a steel bar. Now, all the
      tension will move into this arm and you will not be able to bend it because
      the more you try, the harder it becomes.

       When I release the pressure from this arm, you will totally and completely
      release the tension and relax, the head will turn even more to the right and
      you will go deeper. Relax.


      [A sigh.] All subjects will let go if you look for it. It’s there. Now we would
      start our approach to therapy. Since there is no phobic reaction to it, we
      will deal with the scene directly.

      Florence, I want you to imagine that you see yourself. And you are
      preparing to go on stage. You feel a sense of excitement. When you feel
      this excitement, the index finger on your left hand will lift.

      Florence: (The index finger rises).

      Dr. Kappas: It will go down now. You see yourself approaching the
      stage. The audience is out there, and you begin to feel very comfortable,
      high energy, very comfortable. You want that space. Just as if that space
      is yours. You have a feeling of going out on that stage. The same feeling
      you have when you just got through with a good performance is the same
      feeling you are going to have now. You are out there. You are
      functioning, you are performing. You are having a good time. It’s natural.
      When you have a good time, you can find only one emotion that you have
      to fight. That is the emotion of smiling. In fact, smiling becomes so
      contagious that you can’t even stop it. The more you try, the stronger it
      becomes. You can try. You can’t stop it. In fact, as this smiling grows,
      we are going to come out of the hypnosis state. Each time I suggest
      sleep, you will sleep quickly, soundly, and deeply. Now one. We start to
      come up. Two. Coming up now. Three. Four. And five. WIDE AWAKE.
      WIDE AWAKE.

 EMOTIONAL AND PHYSICAL SEXUALITY

            Sexuality begins about ages ten to fourteen. Children at that age
            try to duplicate what they see. This is how suggestibility is formed
            at an earlier age. Sexuality is created by the secondary caretaker
            (usually father).    The children will emulate father’s sexuality
            (behavior) and usually then pick a partner similar to the one father
            did, which is usually their opposite.

            Sexual personality then develops. It is a behavior. Most sexuality
            ranges between 70% physical to 70% emotional. Anything over
            that tends to be exaggerated.



  STAGES OF DEVELOPMENT IN RELATIONSHIPS

            There are three stages of relationships.

            Honeymoon Stage - This is the beginning of the relationship.

            Plateau Stage - During this stage, the partners tend to take each
            other for granted. Sexual behavior tends to level off.

            Trauma Stage - At this point, the partners tend to come into
            therapy. The behavior is exaggerated.

            The more secure a person becomes in their relationship, the more
            the sex drive decreases. Insecurity tends to increase the sex drive.
            During the honeymoon stage, the physical sexuality is increased
            due to insecurity. Once the relationship becomes more secure, the
            physical sexuality decreases.

            Once an emotional sexual female is ready to leave a relationship,
            she has already replaced her mate.

            The Emotional sexual is left-brain dominant. The Physical sexual is
            right-brain dominant.

  PRIORITIES

            At the beginning of a relationship the priorities for a Physical are:

            1.   Relationship, Sex
            2.   Children, Family
            3.   Hobbies
            4.   Work

            The Emotional sexual priorities are different:

            1.   Work
            2.   Hobbies
            3.   Family
            4.   Sex

            In a new relationship, an Emotional sexual male will still act as an
            emotional male. He is not demonstrative. He has difficulty in
            reaching out and expressing himself. He is logically oriented. He
            feels that as long as he doesn’t say anything, everything is all right.

            However, a Physical sexual female will be dominant and confident.
            She dresses well. Her priority is her family. She has a healthy sex
            drive and has a need to communicate.



 CYCLE DAYS

            Most Emotional sexual individuals are normally on a three-day
            cycle or multiples (e.g. weekly, monthly, etc.). They are only
            interested in sex every third day. On day one, touch can be very
            irritating rather than pleasurable. The closer to the third day it
            gets, the more pleasurable touch feels.



 SUB-DOMINANCE

            If a person is 75% physical, their sub-dominance is 25% emotional.
            This 25% can be taken and applied to their relationship. This 25%
            sub-dominant behavior can be used to do things that complement
            their partner’s behavior.

 THERAPY

            The problem occurs in the relationship after the honeymoon stage,
            when communication breaks down.

            The Physical has a constant need to know where they stand in the
            relationship. They need to hear this. The idea is to educate both
            the Emotional and the Physical. Teach the Physical not to expect
            to hear from their partner that their partner cares. Teach the
            Emotional there are ways of communicating their caring to their
            Physical partner.

            The thought processes which occur for the Physical and the
            Emotional are different. The Physical first gets the thought which
            becomes a physical feeling then finally becomes an emotional
            reaction. The Emotional first gets a thought which becomes an
            emotional feeling and then this finally becomes a physical reaction.

            The only purpose in having sex for the Emotional male is total
            cubical release. The Emotional sexual, both male and female, tend
            to prefer oral sex. After the sex act, the Emotional wants to go to
            sleep, wash, relax, etc. The Physical wants to cuddle.

            Natural opposites attract. It has nothing to do with logic, reason, or
            good sense. Two people are drawn together by what is lacking in
            themselves.

            Learn to understand the characteristics of the Emotional or Physical
            sexual, particularly your opposite.
