Exercise “Arm Drop – Snap Induction”

Watch the video a few times, write down the instructions
find a test person with whom you can perform the following steps:

  1. Have your test person sit on a chair.
  2. Sit or stand next to them, not too far away.
  3. Ask for permission to touch.
  4. Carry out the induction.
  5. Make sure that the subject keeps his head straight and only follows your finger with his eyes.
  6. Snap your finger at the exact moment when the subject can no longer follow your gaze.
  7. Mention the word “sleep” and drop his hand at the same moment.
  8. Immediately use a deepening technique.
  9. Give him some positive suggestions.
  10. Then tell your subject that they can open their eyes again as soon as they want to.
  11. After the exercise, ask your subject how they felt.


Make sure that your subject is sitting securely on a chair (cannot tip forward). Have him take off his glasses and remove chewing gum from his mouth, if available.

Contact lenses should also be avoided. As the eyes move back and forth behind the eyelids in a hypnotic state, the contact lenses could slip out of place. That would be a little uncomfortable for your subject.
