How to learn hypnosis yourself at home

Stages of hypnotizing a person

You can only hypnotize a person with his consent.
First, make sure you really need it. Ask yourself if you are ready to take responsibility for someone else's life and health. If you are ready, you can start. Preparation with mirror exercises. Maintaining a gaze that carries the necessary information. Learn to focus your gaze. To do this, use a pencil. Hold it in front of you, and then suddenly look to the other side of the room. Repeat the action. Development of lateral vision. Try to see as many details as possible on the sides while sitting in one position and without turning your head. Training for the first hypnosis session. Find someone who isn't afraid to get involved. Realize that you will take full responsibility for this person. Ask the person to look you in the eyes without blinking or turning away

Speak the words quietly, calmly, their careful use will relax the interlocutor. You need to try to show confidence in your gaze

Repeat with authority: “your eyelids become heavy, you want to sleep, you calm down and relax, your breathing becomes calm and even, you don’t think about anything, you just fall asleep. Your body becomes heavy, leaden, you can’t hold it, it wants to lie down and drags you along with it.” Repeat phrases several times. When you see that the person is relaxed, ask permission to touch his shoulder. Tell the person that immediately after you touch them, they will be able to fall asleep. After this, tell him that everything is fine, he is under hypnosis, and his condition is normal. Tell your coachee to listen to your voice. Count from five to one and click with two fingers. The person will be in your attention. He will perceive everything you say with great significance, because he is in a helpless state. You can program this person to think positively or distract him from obsessive thoughts if the situation requires it. You can check a person’s condition by holding his hand in your palm. If it is heavy and cannot stand on its own, then hypnosis works. When the session is over, you need to warn the patient that you will now awaken him to real life. Tell him that when you count from five to one, he will wake up. After counting “one,” snap your fingers sharply. The person will immediately come to his senses. Let him know where he is and what's happening to him by continuing the casual conversation.

Simple ways to protect yourself

It is no coincidence that people often cannot withstand the onslaught of a judgmental and reproachful look and often hide their eyes or turn away altogether. This way they avoid receiving the flow of negative energy and, accordingly, protect themselves. Therefore, the easiest way to protect yourself is not to look directly into the eyes of a person prone to anger and other negative emotions. As a last resort, it would be safer to look at the bridge of his nose or forehead. Then he most likely will not pay attention, unless he feels something subtly unpleasant and cold due to the fact that real contact with you will not happen, and most of the negativity will remain in him. Thus, the aggressor will harm only himself.

In order not to succumb to suggestion from the outside, do not look at the person continuously during a conversation, but glance to the side from time to time. This will give you the opportunity to maintain your thoughts and mental balance. Of course, it is almost impossible for an ordinary person to protect himself from the influence of real hypnotists, so it is better to avoid such people, not allowing the slightest contact with them.

There are special techniques and exercises that will help you protect yourself from third-party energy influences, protect you from other people’s thoughts and dangerous energy. For example: crossed arms or legs are the easiest way to protect yourself. When crossing, the dissipation of the flow of bioenergy of the body is limited, which protects it and prevents harm. Use this technique in a conversation with a potentially dangerous and unpleasant person.

You can also do the following mental exercise: visualization of a mirror shield. To do this, you need to imagine that you are obscured by a large shield with a mirror surface facing the unwanted interlocutor. And every time he tries to influence you, he will always receive a blow reflected by the mirror in response. As a result, all the negativity will return back to the one who sent it, and you won’t even feel anything bad.

How to learn gypsy hypnosis, hypnotize people with your eyes: tips

We have already described above the distinctive characteristics of gypsy or, as it is also called, street hypnosis. In principle, we will give tips that will help you master any other hypnosis.

The first requirement is self-confidence. She should not hesitate, because only a person who is absolutely confident in himself can hypnotize with his gaze

To do this, it is important to have high self-esteem, so work on yourself. Appearance also plays a big role. There must be an image of a presentable and even authoritative person in order for one to want to trust him. Work on your diction

Words should be pronounced clearly and slowly, and the voice should be full of confidence and firmness. But without unnecessary pressure, otherwise you can only scare the patient away. And the main secret of gypsy hypnosis is the rearrangement of words and a continuous flow of information. Also, do not forget that the voice should lull a person’s consciousness. Don't shout and stick to the same rhythm. In the beginning, of course, you need to practice on your friend, who will give voluntary consent. In the future, you can train on strangers, but know how to choose the right person. Even gypsies approach weak and insecure representatives. Therefore, learn to identify and understand people. Another tip is to copy the behavior and facial expressions of the subject. This can help him understand and connect better.

The main thing that gypsies use in conversation is putting pressure on a person’s misfortunes. It doesn't matter if it's in the past, future or present. As a rule, they all have a similar character. Use general phrases, but don’t go too far. There is no need to be too frightening either. Ask questions of a personal nature, but after an established contact. The person, without even realizing it, will begin to answer the questions posed. And the last piece of advice – don’t give up! Gypsies are also distinguished by their pressure (yes, they often attack in groups so that the victim cannot escape), but they do not give up until the last moment. If you fail, don't get discouraged and don't lose faith in yourself. Remember that “Moscow was not built at once.” Therefore, train and next time you will definitely succeed.

Gypsy hypnosis

You should also know what can cause failure or even prevent you from establishing contact:

  • This is nicotine or drug addiction. Yes, we have already mentioned this. The fact is that a smoking person does not control his consciousness. How can it influence the consciousness of another person?
  • Alcohol will also become a blocker for establishing contact. The fact is that alcoholic drinks dissipate consciousness, and you won’t be able to master hypnosis.
  • Even banal coffee will become a hindrance. After all, it is a stimulant of the nervous system.
  • Do not use hypnosis for any harm. Remember that any action will come back to you like a boomerang. And in double size. Therefore, hypnosis can only be used for good.

Ways to learn hypnosis on your own

Before you start practicing hypnosis on your own, you need to honestly answer the question - what is your goal. It is unlikely that anyone will admit that they want to study hypnosis in order to influence people to realize their plans.

Meanwhile, such use of hypnotic suggestion is not uncommon; a striking example is street gypsies using methods similar to Ericksonian hypnosis. However, when setting unseemly goals for yourself, you should not forget that everything comes back and you have to pay for everything.

As for the methods of self-learning themselves, they can be divided into five main categories:

  1. Books.
  2. Websites.
  3. Audiobooks.
  4. Video lessons.
  5. Online seminars.

They are located as the quality of the acquired knowledge improves and, of course, can be used not only separately, but also complementing each other. Let's look at these methods in more detail, looking at the advantages and disadvantages of each of them.

Power of Gaze: Hypnosis.

The hypnotist's gaze is not just a motionless, glassy gaze directed at one point. The hypnotist's gaze expresses unshakable willpower through the eyes, nerves, and muscles. Anyone who meets such a gaze immediately feels what enormous inner strength the gaze expresses. It is no coincidence that in many martial arts fighters begin their fight with a battle of views. And, as a rule, they determine the balance of power by the strength of their gaze. This look is rarely given by nature; as a rule, it is developed through special exercises. As the power of gaze develops, hypnotic abilities also develop. Anyone who develops the power of their gaze will notice after short training that it is easier for them to solve all everyday issues related to persuading their interlocutor. With each new workout this effect will increase. This view is a treasure trove for any person and should be developed even by those who do not intend to become a hypnotist. Even animals are afraid of this look. Through the gaze, thought is transmitted and willpower operates. The gaze, when it reaches all the power of insight and influence, is a terrible weapon if possessed by a person with bad inclinations. There are a number of simple exercises that will give your eyes unshakable willpower. These exercises are given by me in the book “Induced Hypnosis”.

Is it possible to learn hypnosis at home?


This work contains great truth. This book will have a decisive impact on personal development, health promotion, and awareness of one’s “I.” Life, unfortunately, is short and you need to use it to great advantage, to become the master of your destiny. Read and re-read, practice and you will be successful.

Always be confident and invincible. Remember that life is designed in such a way that those who do not want to defend themselves are mercilessly “crushed” by those around them. This book has the goal of introducing everyone to the secret forces that lie within themselves.

For the first time in the entire history of hypnosis, the mechanism of suggestion without immersion in sleep, which is currently available only to individual hypnotists, is fully revealed. Practical information on hypnosis and suggestion enables the average reader to independently master hypnosis.

This is not even a textbook - it's a self-instruction manual. The author is absolutely sure that this work will cause the indignation of those who until this time had undivided possession of this knowledge, hiding from outsiders the mechanism of action of these forces and the paths of their development, and secretly using this terrible weapon.

Now you will not be defenseless in the face of terrible danger! This is precisely the author's ultimate goal.

How to influence the subconscious

The hypnotic effect occurs through the invocation of subconscious trust and the establishment of so-called rapport. The theory, techniques and practice of hypnosis are inextricably linked with this concept. Rapport is the connection established by the hypnotist with the hypnotized person.

With the establishment of rapport, the hypnotized person becomes more receptive to the suggested words of the hypnotist, readiness to carry out suggested tasks, and loses reaction to other external stimuli. To create unconscious trust and rapport, the hypnotist identifies himself with the hypnotized person - makes his behavior similar, adjusts his posture, gestures, movements, and breathing patterns.

Adjustment to posture and movements

The simplest technique in creating subconscious trust is to adjust to the pose of the person being hypnotized - it must be copied, directly or crosswise (that is, like in a mirror). If, for example, the client's left leg is on top when crossing his legs, when cross-adjusting, the hypnotist should have his left leg on top. But a person rarely sits still, so movements also become the subject of adjustment. This adjustment is more difficult; you need to be very careful, watching and repeating gestures and facial expressions, and at the same time not letting your partner realize it.

The easiest way is to adapt to a person’s gestures, and when copying a gesture, you don’t have to complete it, but only outline and repeat the direction. It is convenient to reproduce the frequency of blinking - the opposite party is almost never aware of this.

To learn this technique, you need to do exercises - copy the pose of a person who is in a motionless state. Repeat changes in posture, gestures, movements

When copying a movement, you can only reflect it by direction; it is important to repeat its frequency. By copying the rhythm of blinking, you can stop it at some point or close your eyes

If the subject does the same, it means that the adjustment is working and the state of hypnosis is approaching.

Adjusting to breathing

Training to adjust to breathing requires a lot of attention, since there is a direct connection between this function and the subconscious. The direct type of adjustment is an exact copying of the rhythm of the subject's inhalations and exhalations. This adjustment is most effective. But if a person's breathing rhythm is too fast or slow, it may be difficult to reproduce. In this case, indirect adjustment is used - they copy the breathing rhythm by moving, for example, a finger.

When performing training exercises, you need to work on both types of adjustments. Watching the person, begin to breathe evenly in time with his inhalations and exhalations. Then select a subject with an increased breathing rate and try to copy the rhythm of inhalation and exhalation by shaking your leg or moving your finger.

Voice and speech

The voice is the hypnotist's working tool. A clear, strong, pleasant voice, easily moving from tone to tone, introduces the hypnotized person into a state of trance. Speech should be clear, unhurried, and convincing. It is necessary to develop your own voice, which will act hypnotically, train it in accordance with these requirements, learn to change intonation, make it rhythmic if necessary.

There are two more rules used in hypnosis:

  1. The speech should not contain negatives. Negations do not exist in the subconscious; it does not perceive them. An exercise for training such speech is to avoid using the particle “not” at all for some time, and instead of using negative words, use others that are suitable in meaning. Then return to normal speech, but when talking about experiences, do not use the negative particle.
  2. Phrases should be general in nature, not specific to the situation. The person being hypnotized must have unoccupied space for his impressions and feelings. This facilitates a faster introduction into trance.

After these initial techniques have been successfully mastered, you can move on - study and train in a self-instruction manual on the basics of hypnosis, techniques for inducing trance through associations, suggestion with command words, hypnotization with built-in messages, using a person’s natural trance. Mastering the techniques of breaking patterns, overloading, and anchoring will add to your knowledge and techniques.

It is also important to pay attention to autogenic training

This is only a small part of the recommendations and exercises for mastering hypnosis. To learn practical hypnosis, you need to work hard using the hypnosis tutorial for beginners, use videos with exercises, examples of techniques, and advice from experienced specialists. Such information can be obtained on the channel of psychologist and hypnologist Nikita Valerievich Baturin.

What to do during a trance

During the session, you need to pay attention to the issues that concern the person. This could be childhood trauma, sexual abuse, phobias, or health problems. Without the appropriate medical knowledge, you are unlikely to be able to help a person with severe psycho-emotional problems, therefore, if you have independently studied how to enter a state of hypnosis, it is better to use your knowledge to help people simply relax, calm down, relieve increased nervousness and stress, and overcome insomnia.

general description

Surely you have met people who seem to be naturally endowed with such a gift. They look into your eyes without blinking, and seem to read your thoughts. Under such a gaze you involuntarily get lost. The hypnotic gaze works on almost all patients. In addition, the hypnotist very skillfully conducts a conversation, constructing sentences in such a way that the person will agree with him. All this is necessary to create the precondition for a special state in which a person will be more susceptible to suggestion.

Moreover, this will take quite a lot of time. It is necessary not only to choose the right ones, but also to repeat the exercises many times. The hypnotic gaze is not difficult at all. You just need to repeat simple exercises day after day. At the initial stages, you need to choose only the simplest ones. They are not so much effective as they are useful.

The first step is to master general gaze training and calmness in presence. After this, you need to learn how to transmit:

  • Sparkle in the eyes.
  • Emotional message.

It sounds simple, but in fact you will have to work hard to master them to the required extent. The required skill develops gradually. The hypnotist goes deeper into training and changes not only his view of familiar things, but also his manner of behavior. That is, his mind and physiology are gradually rebuilt.

Draw a circle with a diameter of 1 cm on paper and hang it at a distance of 2 meters at eye level. Look at it for a minute without blinking. It won't work out at first, but gradually you will get there. Move the sheet to the right or left 1-2 meters and continue looking at the point. Walk around the room without taking your eyes off her. Take two sheets of paper with dots and quickly move your gaze from one to the other.

It is important not to blink.

Every day you need to increase the time a little. Gradually it will become very easy to watch without blinking for a few minutes. This creates a deep, interested look.

Preparatory stage

First you need to find a person who has a sincere desire to undergo a session. This is a must. If the hypnotized person does not believe in the effectiveness of hypnotherapy and does not want to succumb to it, then it is extremely difficult to put him into a trance, especially for a novice hypnotist. People who have mental disorders cannot be put into a state of altered consciousness. The procedure can cause a relapse and lead to serious and sometimes dangerous consequences.

You need to prepare the place where the session will be held. This implies the following points:

  1. Choose a quiet room where the person will feel peaceful and comfortable.
  2. Minimizing lighting and keeping the room as clear as possible will help the person being hypnotized to concentrate on the words and actions of the hypnotist.
  3. Turn off cell phones and other means of communication for the duration of the session.
  4. Close all windows if it is noisy outside.
  5. Warn all close people living in the house (apartment) not to enter the room until the session is completed.

Before the procedure, talk with your partner. The patient should know what to expect. Hypnosis is a simple, but at the same time effective relaxation technique that helps not only relax, but also find the necessary answers in your subconscious. A person independently enters a trance while reading a book or watching a movie, etc. It is better to say in advance that:

  1. No one controls anyone during the session.
  2. He will not be immersed in an unconscious (limited) state.
  3. He will not be forced to do anything he does not like.

Hypnosis helps get rid of anxious thoughts, strengthens mindfulness, and is used for complete relaxation during stressful situations. Understanding by partners of goals and motives helps to quickly bring a person into a state of hypnotic trance.

Another important point that is worth checking with the person being hypnotized is whether he has undergone previous sessions of the procedure. If yes, then you need to find out what they told him, what was his reaction to certain actions? This will help the hypnotist understand what needs to be avoided and the degree of suggestibility of a person. For good communication with the patient, prepare for the most popular questions.


It is better to conduct training sessions with loved ones in a familiar and comfortable environment. The session should not be interrupted by extraneous sounds or other circumstances. To do this, you need to turn off all the music in the house and remove pets from the room, if there are any. It is necessary to be patient since the first sessions will be ineffective given the little experience and resistance of the hypnotized person at the subconscious level.


In conclusion, it is worth saying that learning hypnosis on your own is not easy, but it is quite doable. To effectively master a new skill, it would be a good idea to consult with a professional hypnologist. Of course, the main thing is constant training and faith in your own strength.

Development of a magnetic gaze: exercises

These exercises are both the best method to develop a magnetic look, and eye gymnastics to improve vision.

Take a clean white A4 sheet and draw a black circle with a 10-kopeck coin in the center. Attach it to the wall and at a distance of 2 meters, while the circle should be at eye level when you are sitting. Place a chair in the middle of the room, just opposite the paper. Thus, focus on the point in the center and direct your gaze directly at it, firmly, without blinking. To begin with, one minute is enough, then when your eyes have rested, repeat this exercise again, and so on 5 times. At first I couldn’t hold it even for a minute, but believe me, over time with regular training, success will not be long in coming.

Leave the chair in its original place, move the paper a meter to the right of its original position. Sit down and again direct your gaze intently at the black dot, without turning your head. Also repeat the exercise by moving the sheet of paper with the dot to the left, and so repeat 5 times, a minute to the right, a minute to the left.

This exercise develops concentration, the main thing is to concentrate on the point without being distracted by anything, you cannot blink your eyes. There may be a lot of tearing at first, but it will go away with regular exercise. If your eyes are very tired after training, you can rinse them with cold water or apply a compress.

It is very important that these exercises are carried out in natural light. This exercise should be performed daily, increasing by a minute every 3 days.

To avoid straining your eyes, you should not perform this exercise for more than 15 minutes.

This exercise should be performed daily, increasing by a minute every 3 days. To avoid straining your eyes, you should not perform this exercise for more than 15 minutes.

After a month of training, exercise 1 can be complicated by adding various options, for example:

After the concentration of gaze is acquired, you can begin exercises to develop a central gaze. To do this, you need to sit in front of the mirror and direct your piercing gaze at your reflection - at the bridge of the nose, between the eyebrows. This place is also called the third eye. In order to facilitate the exercise at the initial stages, you need to draw a point between the eyebrows and look closely at it, starting from one minute, every 2-3 days you need to add 1 minute (but no more than 15 minutes). As you practice, you should reduce the point, and then try without it altogether.

This exercise should be done in a room with many portraits or photographs of people on the walls. At the same time, look at the bridge of the person’s nose in the portrait for one minute, then abruptly move to another portrait and fix your gaze on the bridge of the person’s nose in the other portrait. And so repeat the exercise with portraits of other people, while you need to move your gaze sharply, with lightning speed.

This exercise should first be done with someone you know. Sit opposite him and look at him with your central gaze until he asks you to stop.

Practice practicing the magnetic power of your gaze, but do not forget that at the same time your face and facial expressions should retain your natural expression, and your gaze should reflect strength, confidence, power, and authority.

The ability to stop with your gaze is the highest skill, which not everyone can master. With the power of a glance you can stop a passerby, thieves, or an evil dog. Grigory Rasputin, for example, made good use of this skill. Gypsies are also good at using the central gaze to manipulate people. Also, everyone knows that Japanese geishas mastered the art of a magnetic gaze. And it was believed that a true geisha was one who could stop a man with her gaze.

Yes, you need to train a lot to develop a magnetic look. But the result is worth it, isn't it?


The technique is used as a broad metaphor, allowing you to change the perception of lived experience in the mind. For example, a client wants to lose weight, but he doesn’t have enough willpower, so he gives up and prefers to play on the computer. Reframing introduces a person into hypnosis as a virtual character on an unconscious level. The specialist asks how much time is spent on the game and listens to the story about the process of “pumping up”. Afterwards there is a rethinking and indirect comparison with a real person.

Losing weight is like upgrading a character in a video game because it requires effort and daily practice. At the beginning there is not much difference, but over time the characteristics become stronger.

Immersion in a trance state is safe and useful for correcting mental characteristics, defects and getting rid of phobias, bad habits and fears. It is important to consider that practice and regular training are needed before using techniques. There are many paths to the unconscious and there are no wrong ways to get to the truth.

How to determine your ability to hypnosis

Many are convinced that the ability to put a person into a trance depends on the individual characteristics of neurophysiology. That is, that there are special individuals who have the gift of magnetism or the ability to suppress the will and establish order, making puppets of the weak. It is a myth. It will be very difficult for a person with such attitudes to influence others, since an arrogant attitude does not contribute to establishing trust.

The brain's mirror neurons are responsible for empathy and the ability to accept another person's point of view. People whose functioning of these neurons is disrupted are not able to empathize and try to understand others. They see others only as puppets, and not equal people with their own needs and goals.

Therefore, instead of trying to understand the person, they begin to “push,” causing a reaction of rejection. They are looking for methods of hypnotic suppression of someone else's will, alpha hypnosis and other aggressive levers of influence on others. Such people are physiologically incapable of other actions. They love to manipulate, choosing as their victims people with impaired psychological defenses.

For those who know how to defend themselves and avoid contact out of a sense of personal hostility, the manipulator thinks that they are afraid of him. This gives such people the feeling that they have the gift of influencing others.

How to test your ability to hypnosis? There are a lot of different tests to test hypnotic abilities. It follows from them that a person who wants to learn how to influence people must have the following character traits:

  • be able to persuade;
  • have a well-spoken speech;
  • be successful and self-confident;
  • often win in disputes;
  • serve as an authority for many, inspire respect;
  • have success with the opposite sex;
  • be insightful, have developed intuition.

But if the test result is disappointing, then it is worth knowing that hypnosis and self-hypnosis are used to develop these same abilities. That is, a specialist can suggest that you are improving every day and activate hidden resources.

Options for going into trance

There are three ways to inspire what you want. Scientists highlight the following:

  • Self-hypnosis. Management occurs independently. Having constructed a scenario in advance and calculated the steps, the person induces a trance and continues to recite the memorized text. The session lasts five minutes.
  • Guided hypnosis. A pre-recorded trance session is used. The audio includes an introduction, steps, and suggestions for specific conditions.
  • Clinical hypnosis. Can only be used with a specialist in person or via video conference.

The last option is considered the most effective, since the professional finds individual problems, connections and builds on them.

Functions of the hypnotic gaze

How to hypnotize with your gaze? The hypnosis technique involves an influence that allows you to turn off the victim’s consciousness: the person understands what is happening, but cannot logically comprehend every statement he hears. To hypnotize, you need to understand what motivates a person, what his capabilities and defensive reactions are. Each hypnotist is responsible for putting another person into trance (a state bordering between sleep and wakefulness).

Weak people can be immersed in a trance using a minimal set of tools - monotonous speech, tactile contact, a pendulum or a coin that moves along one trajectory

They help to concentrate attention on one process. For people with strong psychic defenses, additional conditions will need to be created: their resistance interferes with conducting a hypnosis session

The gaze is the main tool of hypnosis. It helps to carry out suggestion quickly. In such cases, it is not advisable to use additional tools. You should not use deep hypnosis for small manipulations or small changes in the consciousness of the hypnotized person.

Features of application

How does a hypnotist use his gaze? He fixes it on a specific point on which all the person’s attention is focused. The victim can take his eyes off the hypnotist, but does not want to

A hypnotic gaze helps in the following cases:

  • when you need to conduct an urgent hypnosis session (in an inappropriate or crowded place);
  • when the suggestion is superficial, and there is no need to subject the person to unnecessary mental stress;
  • when you need to conduct covert hypnosis.

Doctors who help patients get rid of bad habits, overcome a phobia or cure a mental disorder take a special look. Hypnosis is suitable for quickly correcting a person’s behavior, then the color of the eyes or their shape is a trigger (a detail around which a strong suggestion is built).

Anyone can master the gaze for hypnosis, but this technique of immersion in semi-trance requires long-term study

It is easier for people with charisma and attractiveness to gain skills - their appearance automatically attracts attention


Eye hypnosis is an additional technique. To begin with, the basics of technology are mastered, and only after training are additional skills developed. Exercises done at home help you understand and try the procedure. The more practice you have, the easier it is to use eye hypnosis in real life.

The hypnotic gaze is beneficial for people, and putting the individual into a trance is not necessary. This skill helps to manipulate others and get everything you need from them. It forms the basis of NLP (neurolinguistic programming) and is used to achieve set goals.


This approach is a classic way of teaching and for more convenient orientation in specialized literature, below is a list of five books by recognized masters of hypnosis:

"Trance Formation: Neurolinguistic Programming and the Structure of Hypnosis" Bandler and Grinder

This book was written by the authors of the famous NLP technique, which is essentially a development of the Ericksonian method of hypnosis. Despite the fact that the book was published quite a long time ago, it has not lost its relevance to this day. An excellent publication, written in lively and understandable language.

"Selected Works of Milton Erickson" (4 volumes) M. Erickson

The four volumes of this publication compile the vast practical experience of the famous psychotherapist Milton Erickson, who is the author of the method of hypnosis, which is popular all over the world. You can study the publication in any order, but it is worth noting that it is not intended for beginners, but it will be very useful for further development.

Over the past few decades, a strange situation has been observed - on the one hand, Erickson’s method of hypnosis is becoming increasingly popular, which proves its effectiveness, on the other hand, Erickson has received a lot of criticism.

Most likely this is explained by the genius of the author and the current state of affairs can be compared with what happened after the death of Bruce Lee. While he was alive, everyone recognized his uniqueness and few were able to challenge him. Less than an hour after his death, it turned out that he was quite ordinary.

“My Voice Will Remain with You: Milton Erickson's Teaching Stories” M. Erickson

Erickson did not become famous out of nowhere; all his works are confirmed by clinical observations and his techniques have proven their effectiveness with the test of time. At first glance, it seems that he did not put any effort into his work, simply telling different stories to the patient. Meanwhile, people fell into a trance and after the sessions their lives changed dramatically for the better.

The book is a collection of 100 of the most impressive stories Erickson told in his sessions. There is no need to copy them verbatim in your practice, but they can serve as a starting point for generating your own ideas.

"Monsters and Wands: Hypnosis Doesn't Exist?" S. Heller T. Steele

This is a fairly small book, but it shows with vivid examples how hypnosis is constantly present in our lives. One of the psychotherapists, using the methods shown in this publication, was able to cure an old wart in a patient. He used a “magic wand”, but essentially an ordinary pencil.

"Transforming Therapy: A New Approach to Hypnotherapy" G. Boyne

The author of the book practiced the ultra-fast method of hypnotization and the publication contains a description of several tricks that street hypnotists use. Boyne was a professional of the highest class who could make almost instantaneous suggestions. Despite this, the author of the book was excellent at both the methods of deep trance and long-term instructions.

The disadvantages of learning from books include:

  • quite complex training;
  • a basic level is required to understand the information presented in the book.

Among the advantages can be noted:

  • authority and competence of the authors;
  • accessibility, many books can be downloaded on the Internet for free.

Hypnosis and recovery from it

The next stage is hypnosis itself. In this state, a person loses the ability to look at things critically

. At the same time, he will remember and realize everything. If you're not yet confident in your suggestion skills, try hypnotizing a cat.

There are different techniques


  • you can pet an animal and it will gain trust in you and simply fall asleep;
  • you can use the moment of surprise and catch the animal during a jump, grab it by the scruff of the neck and turn it over in the air;
  • use mechanical methods of influence: the cat looks at the washing machine or at the clock, etc.

There are a sufficient number of videos on how to learn hypnosis. And you can try to hypnotize both animals and people. Remember that individual phrases and methods work

influences during hypnosis. However, never try to scare or do anything illegal.

The fact that a person is immersed in a state of hypnosis will be notified by his uniform breathing and peaceful appearance.

. Try to match the rhythm of his breathing. Don't speak too fast, but don't drawl your words either.

A relatively small stage will be the exit from hypnosis. Take the person out slowly but surely. For example, count out loud to five and ask them to open their eyes

Remember to emphasize that it was a positive experience and ask the person to talk about how they felt

Online seminars

This method is the most effective way to learn hypnosis at home on your own. The price for such classes is quite affordable, and the teacher is always available in real time. The downside to this approach can be found only when compared with face-to-face training. The advantage is high efficiency and affordable price.

The history of hypnosis

The history of hypnosis goes back at least three millennia. It is known that the ancient shamans and priests of Ancient Egypt were perfectly able to put people into a trance; it was successfully used in Ancient India and Tibet. Hypnotic sessions were conducted by healers of Ancient Rome and Ancient Greece. Then, with the help of hypnosis, they raised the morale of soldiers, looked into the future and treated diseases.

The term “hypnosis” itself appeared only in 1843 after a year earlier the English doctor J. Braid proved that transferring attention and gaze to a shiny object plunges the human body and consciousness into a special state. It was then that suggestion acquired a scientific character. In the 19th century, the opinions of scientists were divided: some recognized the possibility of suggestion, others opposed hypnosis. Nothing has changed since then.

To this day, two camps of researchers (opponents and supporters of hypnosis) are engaged in endless debate on this topic, which, undoubtedly, only fuels public interest in hypnosis.

Advantages and disadvantages

Any method has its pros and cons, and hypnotic suggestion techniques are no exception. The benefits of hypnosis include:

  • activation of body reserves;
  • the ability to find the cause of the disease;
  • the opportunity to gain new knowledge and skills;
  • discovery of hidden possibilities of the psyche;
  • no side effects;
  • solving psychological problems.

Hypnosis also has disadvantages, but they are much less than the advantages. The disadvantages of hypnotic suggestion include:

  • the ability to give negative attitudes;
  • prohibition of the use of techniques in case of mental disorders;
  • loss of control over your body and actions.

Ways to train your eyes

The concentration of gaze varies among people: it depends on the vision and thinking of the individual. While eye hypnosis is easy for some, others cannot cope with this practice. It is used through visual contact only if the hypnotist is visual (perceives the world around him better through the eyes, rather than other senses). For such people, eyeball exercises are useful.

How to learn to concentrate:

  • a circle the size of a coin is drawn;
  • installed at eye level (hung on the wall or furniture);
  • the hypnotist sits in front of the sheet (the distance should be at least 50 cm);
  • looks intently at one point on the sheet for a minute (you cannot be distracted or close your eyes for a long time);
  • relaxes for a minute;
  • At the second stage of the exercise, the concentration point is shifted one meter to the right (you cannot turn your head);
  • the gaze is concentrated for a minute, after which the eyes rest again;
  • the concentration point is shifted one meter to the left, after which the exercise is repeated.

If you learn to concentrate on one point, your eyes will stop watering. Thanks to this durability, the hypnotist will be able to put strangers into a trance without additional attributes

Load on the eye muscles

The hypnotic professional look takes years to develop. This requires good vision and healthy eyes. A simple warm-up is used to train the muscles. Starting position: standing against the wall. The hypnotist should look at all three corners of the room. Alternately, the gaze is transferred from one to the second, and then to the third.

Focuses on points that are located at the same height. It is useful to rotate the pupils clockwise

This warm-up can be done anywhere (at work or in transport). To hypnotize only with your eyes, do not forget about rest, as constant stress on the muscles leads to decreased vision and concentration.
