Exercise “Hand Drop – Induction”

Watch the videos a few times, write down the instructions.
find a test person with whom you can carry out the following steps:

  1. Sit adapted and not too far away from your test person.
  2. Ask for permission to touch their arm and hand.
  3. Explain the first part of the induction to your subject and what you expect.
  4. Perform the induction according to your script.
  5. Remember, your subject will go into hypnosis very quickly. Hold him so he can’t fall off the chair.
  6. Immediately use a deepening technique.
  7. Give him some positive suggestions.
  8. Then tell your subject that they can open their eyes again as soon as they want to.
  9. 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.
