THE STREET HYPNOTIST S HANDBOOK SECOND EDITION. My name is Nathan Thomas, and Im delighted to welcome you to the Street Hypnotists Handbook, Second Edition. Here you will find a collection of hypnosis technique s and methods, with simple how to instructions. This will help you brush up on the fundamentals of hypnosis, give you some new ideas for inductions, deepeners and suggestions, and provide you with some safety guidelines, as well as hopefully getting your creative mind rolling on how you can adapt, modify and invent these techniques yourself. In this revised edition you will also find a collection of recommended resources which I have made for you. As you can imagine, I get doze ns of hypnosis trainers banging on my door everyday asking me to review their pr oducts. I have whittled down the list and will only point you towards the best o f the best. This is essentially a quick recipe book of hypnosis techniques, and assumes that you already have a good understanding and knowledge of hypnosis, an d have already studied the basics. Refer to this book when you need fresh ideas, or when you want to try out some new techniques or methods. Remember the instru ctions given are just guidelines, feel free to modify these techniques as they s uit you, and remember that there is no right or wrong way to do hypnosis, provid ed that what you are doing works. At all times, when doing any induction or othe r techniques, make safety and the respect of your subject your top priorities. S o, I know youre keen to begin, so, without further ado, lets kick it off! 2009 EffectiveHypnosis.com All Rights Reserved Page 3

Instant and Rapid Inductions. Well begin with instant and rapid induction techniq ues. Some of these will also combine what are commonly called suggestibility eff ects. The essential ingredient behind every one of these techniques is confidenc e in yourself and your hypnotic ability. If you need help gaining this confidenc e, keep your eyes peeled for a special resource at the end of this section. Thes e step by step instructions will give you the skeleton of the techniques, the re al magic comes from the way you do them. Youll notice that all these inductions are essentially the same, with shock, surprise, confusion, loss of equilibrium, eye fixation and other principles being used to make the trigger (the sleep or relax or trance command) effective. This is not the only way to do an instant induction, b ut it is the standard method and is highly effective. A trouble shooting section will be provided at the end. The Hand Drop Induction 1. 2. 3. 4. Sit your subject pon one of your hands palm on palm Lift your hand up them to press hard Move your hand away suddenly, as enter shock firmly give your trigger (ie Sleep!) and down Have them press down u against theirs to encourage their hand drops and their begin your deepener.

The Arm Pull Induction 1. Sit your subject down or stand them securely and ensur e they will not fall 2. Take a hold of their hand with yours, as if you were sha king hands 3. Give a firm but not violent or painful jerk to the arm, and then i mmediately command sleep and move into a deepener, always ensuring that they do not fall. You may want to use your other arm to secure their neck and head to pr event whiplash as you do this.

The Magnetic Hands Induction 1. Have your subject hold both their arms out about a foot apart, with their palms facing each other. 2. Tell your subject to imagi ne their hands were magnetic plates, being attracted to each other and being pul led closer and closer together 3. As your subjects hands get closer tell them th at the moment their hands touch they will immediately enter a deep trance. 4. Ju st before their hands touch rapidly (but not roughly!) clap their hands together and then command sleep and enter a deepener. The hand to face induction 1. Ask your subject to hold out their hand in front of them 2. Rapidly take hold of thi s hand and move it up in front of their face 3. Tell them that their hand is goi ng to begin moving towards their face and the moment it touches their face they will immediately enter a deep trance 4. Continue to loop this suggestion and the instant their hand touches their face rapidly pull their arm downwards and comm and sleep! The Handshake Induction (simple version) Simply interrupt a normal hand shake and lead into either the arm pull or hand to face induction above. The Handclasp Induction 1. Have the subject clasp their hands in front of them, very tightly 2. Ask them to imagine their hands are glued together to the point where they cannot come unstuck 3. When their hands are successfully glued togeth er push their hands downwards firmly and command sleep, and enter a deepener. Th e eye lock induction 1. Have the subject close their eyes, and simply relax them to the point where they just wont open (should take less than 30 seconds) 2009 EffectiveHypnosis.com All Rights Reserved Page 5

2. Tell them to relax and sleep deeply (as by that time they are already in hypn osis.) The Stiff Arm Induction 1. Have the subject hold out one of their arms 2. H ave them move all the tension from their mind and their body, and all their doub ts about hypnosis into that arm, making it stiff as a steel bar, tight, rigid an d unbendable 3. When they have confirmed that the arm is unbendable, say that wh en you push down on it they are going to release all that tension and enter a de ep state of hypnosis. 4. Firmly grasp their arm as you command release or sleep and loosen it until all the tension is gone, then deepen quickly to stabilize the in credibly deep state you have created. My Inductions: Two inductions I have created totally on the fly whilst filming f or YouTube, just a bit of fun which you may enjoy, and should give you an idea o f how easy it is to create inductions of your own: The Nathan Finger Waggle Indu ction: (great for demonstrations and analytical subjects, and shows how anything really can be an induction) 1. Have the subject hold both arms up and ask them to cup their right hand. 2. H ave them rotate their cupped hand quickly left and right 3. As they are doing th is have them waggle the fingers on the other hand, as fast as possible 4. Repeat edly ask them to swap hands, combine patterns, change over, slow down and speed up, overloading them and confusing them all the while

5. Pull both their hands down and command Sleep then deepen The Thomas String Body Catalepsy Induction (AKA The String Induction) 1. Have your subject securely st anding up, and ensure they will not fall 2. Have them put their hands out in fro nt of them about a foot apart 3. Ask them to imagine tight but not uncomfortable string wrapping itself tightly around their whole body in a strangely comfortab le way 4. Keep talking about this comfortable string locking their arms and legs in place (whist making sure they are secure and do not fall) 5. Test to make su re they are finding it gradually hard and harder to move, but are still feeling safe and comfortable 6. When they are totally immobile due to this hypnotic stri ng ask them to imagine that all the tension of the string is secured in one line between their two hands, and the second you cut that wire they will instantly r elax totally and fall into a deep trance, but their legs will continue to suppor t them and they will remain standing. 7. Cut the wire, and pull their hands apart, command sleep and secure them, then deepen. So there you have just a few instant induction ideas, try them all out, and inte grate the advanced skills you are about to learn in the other sections of this p rogram into them to make them more hypnotic and effective, and of course adapt a nd create your own techniques and just do what comes to you in the moment. Troub leshooting If something seems to go wrong with one of your inductions just bear in mind these simple ideas and options, which can also be applied to failed sugges tions or routines (as after all, an induction merely is just another type of sug gestion): Always act confident Sometimes be prepared to admit failure, but use i t as an opportunity to learn, ask the subject questions and find out what happen ed, explain 2009 EffectiveHypnosis.com All Rights Reserved Page 7

that they may just not have been in the mood to be hypnotized at that time Act a s if the induction worked, have them close their eyes and do your deepener. Move smoothly into another induction without faltering Utilize their every given res ponse and direct it towards a successful hypnotic outcome Special Resources 1: My good friend Sean Michael Andrews creates the best instan t induction DVDs on the market.

Deepeners Here are some fairly standard deepeners to get you started. Remember t he best deepeners are always what just comes to you in the moment, so just talk, and drop yourself into a trance and say what pops into your head. These methods are just to get the ball rolling. With each deepener I have simply given very b asic and simplified examples. Do not use these as scripts. Use your own words if you use these methods, and do it in a style that works for you. Also remember I often dont use these deepeners, I just talk and merge induction, deepener and su ggestion making it one powerful process, not a haphazard collection of technique s. Use these as guidelines only and edit them as much as you like. Some of the m ain principles in the use of deepeners (which is a general term for intensifying the hypnotic state) are setting of hypnotic triggers, creating expectation, the use of direct suggestion, pacing and leading, embedded suggestions, confusion, relaxation, and fatigue of the nervous system. All of these help to secure and i ntensify the state created by your induction. Any hypnotic phenomena can be used as a deepener, which is explained further in the Suggestions and Routines sec tion. The Standard 10-1 Deepener I am now going to count from 10 to 1, and when I reach 1 you will be in a deep state of trance, easily responding to all suggest ions and feeling good and comfortable as you continue to drift and go deeper. 10 , beginning to relax now, 9, going even deeper, 8 deeper and deeper, 7, focusing your mind, 6, feeling peaceful and calm, 5 really noticing how easy it is to ju st allow yourself to drift... 4 feel yourself totally relax as we go down to 3, and know that at 1 lies the deepest state of relaxation, 2 already in deep tranc e, and 1, deep trance now, feeling good and preparing to easily accept all sugge stions given. The elevator, staircase, pathway etc deepener Combine the above 101 framework with some sensory descriptions and internal visualisations of a stai r case they are walking down, an elevator they are riding or a path they are wal king to a room of deepest peace and trance 2009 EffectiveHypnosis.com All Rights Reserved Page 9

(have them relax in a chair in that room when they reach it, and drift further d own into trance) . The use of metaphors like this can enhance the power of your deepeners, particularly if you engage them in the new scene, (and notice the rail of the staircase, what is it made of? And how do the stairs feel underneath you r feet?). The rapid 3 2 1 deepener. This deepener, like all the others but here i n particular, requires great confidence and personal power on your part for it t o be effective, as it is very brief, and uses very little language patterns or o ther hypnotic devices, it is pure direct suggestion. I am not going to count from 3 to 1, and when I reach one you will be 50 times deeper. 3, 2, 1, 50 times dee per. The zero deepener In a moment I will count from 5 to 0, and when I begin coun ting, I want you to see that zero way off out there in the distance. As I begin counting I want you to begin moving toward that zero, getting closer and closer with every number I count, and on the other side of that zero is a wonderful and deep state of trance. 5, getting even closer to that big, powerful zero, 4 rela xing, going deeper, feeling good as we go to 3, closer and closer to deepest tra nce, 2 that zero is so close now, 1 right in front of that 0 and 0, through that 0 and out into the other side, noticing the changes this deepest trance brings. Simple Fractionation Immediately following your induction do a quick 3, 2, 1, d eeper, deeper, deeper to stabilize the trance. Give the command that "every tim e I say sleep, as long as it is safe to do so, you will instantly enter deep t rance, going 10 times deeper each time than the time before. Every time 10 times deeper." Now emerge them and use the sleep command to re-induce. Do this 3 or 4 times. Simple Trigger Deepener Every time I touch you on the shoulder you will relax more and more, and go deeper into a trance, focusing on my voice and noti cing as the feeling youre

beginning to experience intensifies now (tap) deeper, (tap) deeper still (tap, t ap, tap) all the way down, and continuing to feel good and go deeper (tap) Most of the deepeners I use I invent on the spot, and with practice you will be able to do the same.

Suggestions and Mini Routines Here are some ideas to get you started about what you can do with people when you have them in hypnosis. These are only the very b asic suggestions, as more advanced ones will be covered on future lessons. I ten d to link all suggestions I give to the subject feeling good, and being happy an d successful. For example with an arm levitation and as your arm lifts you can fe el good knowing that it is a signal from your unconscious telling you that you c an be successful, you can achieve your goals and you truly can be happy in your own life. This helps to make the hypnosis experience more powerful and positive f or the subject. Once again these are just some very basic ideas for simple thing s you can do with hypnosis. Please be sure to think of your own, and adapt them to be more suited for the occasion you are in, i.e. to do things that make them more entertaining, inspiring, educational, or transformational depending on the circumstances. Always be sure that you respect your subject, and never do anythi ng to put them in any danger or to make them feel any pain or fear. When leading into a suggestion it helps to say something like and you will not be scared, you will in fact be inspired and motivated by this demonstration of the incredible power of your own mind, and feel comfortable with what your unconscious is showi ng you. As well as being a matter of ethics and safety, youll also find that this increases the effectiveness of your suggestions. Remember, what you can do with hypnosis is virtually unlimited. Do not restrict yourself to what I share here. Also make sure you undo all these suggestions when you are finished! Arm levitat ion This is a great deepener and convincer / tester, and is also useful in piggy backing other suggestions and as a platform to lead into more advanced phenomena . Have them imagine that one of their arms is becoming light, very light, as if 1000 strong helium balloons were tied to their wrist and pulling their arm up, a nd their arm is beginning to rise higher and higher and higher. As their arm ris es give suggestions about it meaning they are going deeper into trance etc, and use it as a platform for other suggestions

Eye Lock Can be used as an induction, as mentioned earlier, but also a great dee pener and convincer. Simply have them imagine their eyes are relaxed to the poin t that they simply wont open, as if they were totally glued shut. Hand Stick Plac e their hand on either a table or a wall and tell them that their hand is stuck, tightly locked down and firmly attached to the surface, glued there and locked to the point where, no matter how hard they were to try and unstick it, it would simply stick tighter. This is both an entertaining suggestion and useful for bu ilding toward advanced phenomena by piggybacking other suggestions. Amnesia Have the subject forget their name, or age or a particular number. Use a reference e xperience such as the tip of the tongue phenomenon (having a word or something you should know on the tip of your tongue but not being able to find it) to prepare their mind, and then use direct and indirect suggestion to have them forget wha t the number, name word or thing that you want forgotten. Remember to give their name (or whatever it was) back at the end! Hypnotic Laughter Tell them that som ething normal, like a book or a hat or every word another friend says etc is hil ariously funny, the funniest thing they have ever come across, and they will lau gh harder and harder and harder every time they hear / look at it. Hypnotic Jour ney Take them on a hypnotic journey through their enhanced imagination, either w ith you guiding them along or their unconscious creating the story and you merel y enhancing it with your questions. This is a great opportunity for you to explo re unconscious creativity, and for you to help them change by way of metaphor. 2009 EffectiveHypnosis.com All Rights Reserved Page 13

Awakeners An awakener is the term used for what we do to emerge someone from hyp nosis. Make sure you say your awakener from a state of energy and cheerful alert ness, as you say your deepeners whilst being in a state or relaxation (more info rmation on how to change your state will be covered in other lessons) and make s ure you do put the time in to give good long awakeners, otherwise you can leave your subjects feeling dazed and confused. You can say or do anything you like to emerge someone from hypnosis, but the best awakeners tend to include the follow ing: Removal of all suggestions given during hypnosis that the subject does not want to keep with them. Creating the feeling of being energized and alert Clearl y telling the subject that now is the time to come back. Leaving the subject feeli ng great Heres an example: I am now going to count from 1 to 3, with ever number I count you will find yourself becoming more alert and aware, returning to pleasa nt and cheerful state of normal consciousness feeling happy and relaxed. Everyth ing will now be totally back to normal except that you will feel really good and find that life just looks so much brighter because of your hypnotic experience. 1, beginning to emerge now, 2 stretch out and feel good, 3 wide awake, fully al ert, refreshed and feeling wonderful! 2009 EffectiveHypnosis.com All Rights Reserved Page 15

Safety I am now going to give you some safety guidelines which you should always keep in mind when doing hypnosis. These are just simple dos and donts which shoul d ensure you dont encounter any mishaps or disasters. Here I will also explain ho w to deal with some of the very rare problems which sometimes happen to hypnotiz ed people. As a general rule, always have people securely seated when doing hypn osis. Only do standing hypnosis when you are sure you could catch them just in c ase they fell, and be sure to constantly give suggestions to the effect that the y will remain standing securely no matter what. Always remove all suggestions im mediately after you have finished and return people totally back to normal excep t for suggestions to feel happy and be successful and other safe and benign suggesti ons which will have no surprising, risky or adverse effect and that the subject has consented to beforehand. Never use hypnosis to do anything immoral or illega l Do not do anything that is beyond your skill or training Never use hypnosis to cure pain, ie a headache unless they are under safe and controlled circumstance s. My official advice to you is to never use hypnosis for pain control, as pain is an important signal and always has a purpose. Dont be cruel or negative. That is dont hypnotize people to feel pain or suffering or any kind of discomfort Do n ot be violent when doing your inductions, be as gentle as possible. Be careful w orking with people with neck or back problems or other injuries Never hypnotize anyone who is on medication, or who has a known psychiatric dysfunction Always s tick with your hypnotized people and be prepared to jump straight in and emerge them immediately to safety just in case. At this stage, avoid regressions or any kind of advanced remedial therapeutic techniques, this will be covered more in the Hypnotic Problem Solver Set and other lessons.

If for some reason your subject should seem to experience an abreaction, that is become distraught or upset in hypnosis and react badly, simply say something to the effect of You are safe, returning now to a normal state of consciousness, ev erything is totally back to normal, you are safe and fine and fully awake now. If they should not emerge from trance upon your instructions do not worry. Trance is a natural state and they cannot get stuck in it. Simply be firm, confident and authoritative and command them to emerge. Or, if the circumstances are right, ju st allow them to enjoy the state for a few more minutes. Some people give hypnot ic threats ie if you do not emerge now I will make it so you can never be hypnoti zed again. I would not recommend this except as a last resort, and never carry ou t the threat. If all else fails just wake them as if you would a sleeping person . I have hypnotized many, many people, and this has never happened to me ever. I mention it just in case you ever run into this situation. Control the crowd if you are doing this in public, and make sure they do not abuse or harm the hypnot ized person. Remember if you exercise common sense and respect your subjects, as well as foll owing these guidelines, you should be fine. I hope you have enjoyed this very co ncise Street Hypnotists Handbook, and Ill see you very soon!
