This is the Work Smart Hypnosis Podcast, session number 256, The Dave Alman Induction for Change. Welcome to the Work Smart Hypnosis Podcast with Jason Lynette, your professional resource for hypnosis training and outstanding business success. Here’s your host, Jason Lynette. Welcome back to the program.
I’m Jason Lynette, and this week especially, let’s kick. With a disclaimer, this program is incredibly hypnotic in nature and should only be listened to in a place where you can give it your full focused attention. Of course, that means never behind the wheel of a car or while operating a for. There now that we got that outta the way.
Welcome back. And this week we’re gonna venture into something that, quite honestly, this is something that I’ve been workshopping for a while. This is a technique I’ve been, you know, strategizing and experimenting with and quite openly. It’s only in the last week or two that I actually. Taught it in a live training that before that, I’d kind of held it back because I still wasn’t a hundred percent on it, and yet having now used it with my official clients now for going on, well, about a year or two, I’d say this is officially now in the curriculum in terms of what I teach.
And for those of you that are inside hypnotic workers, we’re gonna expand upon this. Even more inside of there over the next few weeks because the story behind the Dave Ment induction, for those of you that don’t know it, basically, if we rewind the history of hypnosis back, and I’m gonna go extremely general for the sake of time and clarification here.
This phenomenon in hypnosis that’s referred to as fractionation and fractionation refers to simply as I would put it, a rising and falling of energy. So basically the more a person would go in and come out of hypnosis, The more they would go back in the easier and more efficiently they’re able to do that.
So I, I use the metaphor of like a muscle that when you lift the same weight several times over, over time, by way of what they call progressive overload training, that it becomes even easier to do that. So I feel this does make me more effective as a hypnotist because by looking at the process of hypnosis, as if like a muscle that everyone does have the capability through repetition and conditioning to become that really virtuoso of a hypnotic subject.
So this is where someone would say, you’re either the natural sub nebulous. Or you’re not. And I would say, if we want to use that word as a definition, everybody eventually can become that profound hypnotic subject. So that’s part of the legacy behind the Dave Alman induction and the brief bit. If it was, first and foremost, Dave Alman was a vaudeville entertainer as well as a radio host.
And he was doing hypnosis and reading some of the older work, specifically Hippolyte, Bernheim, and seeing that from suggestive therapeutics, but seeing that the more that people went into hypnosis, that the more profound the hypnotic phenomenon they were able to achieve. And so this became this sort of sanding down tasks of how do we hypnotize a single client?
Over and over and over to the point where now we know consistently they’re going into the more reliable hypnotic states for change. So the short version of this was that at one point it was a daily process, and then it was an hourly process, and then eventually it became what Dave Elman referred to as.
The three minute routine, which part of the legacy behind that too was that Dave Alman was teaching doctors and nurses and surgeons. He was working in an environment where those people were pressed for time. So there’s a big sort of disclaimer and a warning inside of what we’re about to get into, which would be that, you know, if you’re Dave Alman induction took four or five minutes.
In your office where we don’t have eight minutes in the room with the patient, so make it count, which was the challenge of the doctors at the time with Dave Elman were facing if your induction takes four or five minutes in the shape of let’s say a one hour, or as I book everything, a 90 minute block session, if it took four minutes or five minutes rather than three.
You’re all right. If it took 12 minutes, then you’re kind of losing one of the biggest qualities of the Dave Alman induction, which by the way, if you don’t have any frame of reference as to what I’m talking about, head over to the show notes [email protected] and I’ve got a video, it’s an older video of mine from, uh, that I’ve got on YouTube, which is just basically me demoing the process in less than three minutes.
So I’m gonna walk through it. Inside of this week session, though, this really isn’t meant to be a full on training in the Dave Ment induction. This is assuming that many of you know what it is, and if not, we’re gonna put the steps in the show notes and on top of that, we’ll put the demo inside of it as well.
So, if your Dave m Dave Alman induction took longer than three minutes, four or five, you’re okay because we’re not that pressed for time. But if it took 12 minutes, What we’re getting at here is that perhaps you’re adding a whole bunch of extra stuff that really is weakening its effects, weakening its power, which is where I now have to give the official preframe to the story, which was that about maybe two or three years ago I did a demo of exactly.
What I’m about to talk about in front of Cheryl and Larry Elman, Larry’s Dave’s son, and this was right after we had all talked about, don’t let it become the 12 minute routine because you’re losing the efficiency of the process. And I feel I did get the official, uh, Elman seal of approval that, well, that’s a customization you can do
So what we’re gonna do is we’re gonna break down really, first of all this old school mindset that, okay, now that I’ve done my. Now that I’ve done my pre-talk, now that I’ve done my induction, I can finally talk about why you’re here. So if we learn hypnosis from older schools of thought, we kind of think in this sort of modular context that not until we’ve graduated from the hypnotic induction can we finally address the change.
And thanks to, you know, many folks out there, myself and Richard non guard and many others that are out there, that really to let the hypnotic induction just be that thing, that quote, You have to get through to finally then address the change. And let’s give credit to Scott Sandlin for a beautiful phrase, which is that there are some people that say they only use rapid and instant inductions because quote, that gives me more time to address the change.
And I think Scott put the button on that conversation a couple of years back where he goes, If the make or break quality of your session is the fact that your induction took one minute rather than. Clearly there’s something else that’s going wrong inside of your session, and I think that’s one of the best ways to phrase it.
So in a moment, we’re gonna jump into, first of all, an overview of the framework of the induction, just to set the stage and build a foundation for everybody. Then from there, you’re gonna hear how I’ve been workshopping this, that the Dave Valman induction one becomes a process of change. Work that in the shape of delivering the steps of the Dave Valman in.
I am directly addressing the reason why the person is there. And two, while this again is not an entire training on the day of Alman induction, there’s videos of even mine on YouTube talking about the troubleshooting of this process. Because for any step along the way, if something doesn’t go exactly as planned, it’s okay because there’s ways to troubleshoot the process.
That being said, as I’ve now customized the process based on the. I’ve virtually rendered the troubleshooting unnecessary because now how do you motivate change? There’s always a stick involved. You’re either poking with a stick to move away from pain. This is all metaphor now. Or you’re either dangling a carrot at the end of the stick to move towards pleasure.
So theoretically, I am now dangling the carrot of change through every step of the Dave Alman induction, and by doing. Negating all need for the troubleshooting of the process. And, uh, so while you’re there at the show [email protected], you’re gonna see the three minute video of me demoing this process.
We’ll put the basic six steps there as a, uh, frame of reference there too. Also, while you’re there, check out hypnotic workers. Dot com hypnotic workers is the all access pass to my hypnosis training library and digital access form. And the cool thing about it is it’s not just more inductions, it’s not just more techniques for change.
It’s on top of that multiple demonstrations of various change strategies, so you can see how they’re customized to the individual the same way as we’re about to take a basic f. And completely turn it on its head by customizing to the individual in front of us. On top of that too, there are full client session demonstrations, so you’re not just seeing classroom demos, you’re seeing the real work with real paying clients who’ve signed a waiver and gave us permission to share it with you.
My students. I also, we don’t need any more scripts as hypnotists. We need transcripts every. Of hypnotic workers has been transcribed, so we’d love to have you come join me at the Work Smart hypnosis live.com training events, or you can get the digital access format [email protected]. Check that out.
And with that, let’s jump directly into this unpacking of the Dave Development induction for change. Well, here we go. This is episode number 256, the Dave Alman Induction for Change, and here we go. Let’s go ahead and break this down first. For those of you that might not be familiar with this though, if you’re not familiar, I’d highly encourage.
Briefly hit pause on this recording. Head over to the show [email protected], which a little fun tip on that website. Top left corner, there’s a search function and just type in Elman, E L M A N. You’re gonna see a couple of episodes pop up in the search because both Cheryl and Larry have been on the program.
Several times over the last almost six years we’ve been doing this thing. So you’ll be able to see this specific episode and find that video, The three minute routine demonstration. Let’s break down the basic sick six. Step one is typically catay of a small group of muscles to quote, bypass the critical factor of the conscious mind and think of this as getting the foot in the door and wonderful arguments online about factor versus faculty.
Basically what I’m going for is that, again, opening wedge that I can give a suggestion and we can create a temporary opening that you can make things different than they were. There we go. And classically, this is done by the pattern of go ahead and relax your eyelids, relax your eyelids, all the way down to the place where you can make those eyelid muscles so relaxed that they just don’t wanna work.
So that even if you were to try to open them, maybe they could just relax even further down. Kind of like checking a door that’s locked to make sure it’s still locked. And credit to James Hazelrig for that metaphor at the end of that segment. So the typical moment of notice now that even if you try to open your eyelid, They just relax even further.
Give ’em a try. They just relax even further down. And those of you that have seen my work on hypnotic phenomenon, you’re hearing the tonality shift that we don’t have to define our client as either needing a permissive or an authoritative approach. Instead, we can be, as I phrase it, permissively, authoritative or authoritatively permiss.
Which that sounds technical. It’s actually quite simple. Basically, listen, that I’m going to weaken the suggestion that I don’t want to happen, and I’m going to strengthen the suggestion that I do want to happen. Here goes. So notice now that even if you try to open those eyelid muscles, they just relax even further down.
That’s right. Give ’em a try, and they just relax even further down and quit testing and send that relaxation down throughout your body, like a comfortable wave of relaxation. So really right there in that little segment, that was the first two steps. Of the day, Alman induction, which again, you could find some of our videos online talking through the troubleshooting of the process in terms of what happens if their eyes open.
But we’re gonna negate the need for that after we go through this initial introduction. So step one, catay of a small group of muscles. Which classically is the eyelid muscles just not working through holding onto that relaxation you already heard. Step two, which is a brief deepening process to prepare for fractionation, so that’s your quickest and easiest progressive muscle relaxation induction.
Quit testing and send that relaxation all the way down across your body, like a comfortable wave of relax. That’s right. You’re doing good. As simple as that. It doesn’t have to be a long drawn out process. The next step of this is the official fractionation. Though quite simply, there’s a principle in hypnosis that’s referred to as pyramiding and pyramiding is to basically layer multiple hypnotic conductions one on top of the other without emerging.
So this is different than a reemergence where you would bring someone out of hyp. And then go right back in through another hypnotic. In conduction. The principle of Pyramiding is that you are layering multiple hypnotic induction strategies, one on top of the other, on an already hypnotized client. And really as I look at the framework here, the catay is one, the deepening processes.
Two, I’m gonna count the fractionation as three hypnotic conductions. So we’re up to five hypnotic conductions in the first 45 seconds. The next step after this is gonna be something we’ll talk about catay of a large group of muscles. That’s gonna be like six, and then the amnesia by six and seven and the way that I do it, and then the amnesia by suggestion, which we’ll talk about.
We’re basically doing about 10 hypnotic conductions. You know, rapidly and effectively in a matter of just three minutes. So the fractionation, as we’re onto that step now, is classically let the eyes open, let the eyes close, and usually done with some bit of deepening pattern. The classic being let the eyes open, let the eyes close and relax as much as 10 times deeper.
We’ll do that again. The next time they close notice you can double the awareness of that chair supporting your body. Let the eyes. Let the eyes close and just double that awareness, which that’s a little bit of an adjustment of mine on the original pattern. The reason that I say that is I don’t want to keep pumbling away the word relax, but as I say, become aware of the sensation, double the awareness of the chair, fully supporting your body.
That’s another relaxation suggestion just without using the R word over and over and over. And the third one tends to. In a moment when those eyelids close, you can just go even deeper, relaxed. Let the eyes open. Let the eyes close, and just go even deeper down. That’s right. You’re doing great. Then from here, the next step classically is the catay of a large group of muscles, which catay, for those that don’t know the word is either the complete and total relaxation of a group of muscle.
Or the complete and total rigidity and locking of a group of muscles. So this is a audio format, but imagine I’m now picking up my hand as I am and kind of dangling it around like a wet towel. That complete and total relaxation. That’s catay, or imagine that I’ve now put my hand into a fist and I’ve strengthened it out in front of me, and the more I try to bend it, it gets even stronger.
That’s also catay, so it’s the two ends of the spectrum. So classically, the catay of a large group of muscles is delivered this way. In a moment, I’m gonna reach over and I’ll pick up that arm by the wrist today. Let me do all the work. When I pick it up, just let it dangle there, like a soaking wet dish rag.
Just let it be loose, limp, and lazy like a rag doll. I’ll pick it up and we’ll let it fall. As it falls, just let it plop right back down in the arm of that chair. And whenever we do that notice, it can just help to take you much deeper relaxed. Just let that thing be heavy. I’m not picking it up. Let that thing be heavy.
Let it just dangle there and now just let it plop. Write back down, let that take you even deeper. In fact, anytime today, I pick up that hand and drop it. It just helps to guide you much, much deeper down. That’s right. You’re doing great. And then from here, the next step of this is the final quote as what’s often called the moment of truth, the amnesia by suggestion.
Or classically referred to as the losing of the numbers, which, uh, I hate to say that the way that I teach hypnosis is that again, we don’t need any more scripts, we need transcripts. And I consistently drill, whether it’s in hypnotic workers or whether it’s in my live work Smart hypnosis live course, that I don’t tell you to memorize things I’m not telling.
You need to go off and memorize these phrases. We all start. That being said, I am going to read my words because this paragraph is magic. That in a moment we’ll have you begin to count backwards out loud, slowly from 100. Let every number you say help you to double your mental relaxation. So by the time you reach 98 or maybe even sooner, you can just relax the rest of the matter of your mind as if there’s nothing more to count.
Want that to happen and you can make that happen. And when they are, Just notice how good you feel, which we will do this. In the show notes. We will print that exact paragraph, and the reason I want you to see it, and I’m not sure. The show notes as they appear in your podcasting app. So like those of you that download it on iTunes or Stitcher or all the other platforms, I’m not sure if those are gonna show the, uh, sort of markup of this, because I have the word number underlined and I have other phrases that are marked down in bold.
And whether they’re embedded commands are just simply phrases that you lean into and put even more emphasis into that. Really, for me, it’s the ton. That makes this work. So begin counting backwards from a hundred out loud now, and typically it would follow the pattern of 100. Good. Now double that mental relaxation.
99. Just getting ready to let those things go and 98 now, just relax the rest of them away. And as they’re gone, nod your head good and, and the shape of that. It’s taken me some time to introduce it because I wanted to give a bit of a foundation for those that well don’t yet know the technique. But again, if you haven’t seen it yet, show notes, Work smart hypnosis.com for this episode 2 56, type in Elman.
And the top left search, you can find that three minute video, which will give you the foundation of everything. So now that we have that in place, Let me add in one more, two more steps to this actually, which would be that one classically, oh, three things. We would traditionally then put as step number six, deepening throughout, which respectfully, when Larry and Cheryl and I taught a class together back in 2016, we kind of fought over that.
And we’re still friends, but we fought over this idea cause I was the one going, No, no, no. It’s five steps because the next step of every hypnotic induction is deepening through. You continuously deepen throughout the suggestion. And remember, even giving suggestions for change is a deepening method as long as the suggestions are congruent to the individual and why they’re there, simply giving hypnotic suggestions for change.
We’ll continue to deepen the hypnotic state. Yet. Out of respect for Larry, we put in, uh, step six is deepening throughout, so there we go. That’s the first thing. The second thing is traditionally somewhere in the pattern, And I learned this from Sean, Mike Land Andrews going on about 12, 13 years ago, is the quote sounds around you, pattern the distraction filter, which I believe he does it earlier.
I put it in between the fractionation and the floppy arm drop, which is simply this pattern. And throughout this process, you may hear sounds around you, whether it’s cars, parking outside, or doors closing in the office next door. All of these sounds begin to matter less and less because the sound of my voice and the feeling of every breath you exhale, that’s what helps to guide you deeper down and basically, and modify that of course for your situation.
What that bit of pattern does is that it one, acknowledges distracting sounds that may be around and two, Utilizes them. They become part of the process rather than the game of, Oh, like the actor on stage who drops a book. If I pretend if I ignore it, the audience will ignore it as well. Which from someone who worked in professional stage management for about six or seven years.
No , the entire audience now spends the time going, Is that book supposed to be there? Is that supposed, And we’d have to send a stage hand out during a scene change to pick up the book, and the audience would genuinely applaud because like finally there’s the release of this. How’s that for a tangent? So again, the sounds around you, patter, you can hear the stuff around you.
Those sounds matter less and less. Let me throw in one other nuance too, which was that reading, Integrative Hypnosis by Melissa Tier, she drops the phrase in an induction somewhere, that this is a process of following some simple instructions and your mind and body already know exactly what to. And I lifted that little chunk out, and I’ve put that as a framework because really that’s what the day of Alman induction is.
As I give you this instruction, you do this thing and that helps you to go even deeper. So by wonderful cause effect relationship, because you’re following my instructions. , you’re able to go into hypnosis easily. And how’s that for a framework to hinge your entire process off of? So traditionally we would say, don’t add to this, and let me just go off at a mild tangent, if not rant for a moment.
That there’s a lot of variations of this technique that are out there and many of them. Unfortunately weaken its effectiveness, that they change the amnesia by suggestion instead to be what’s called aphasia. That you know, if you more you count, it’s gonna be too much effort and you’ll just stop. That’s not actually amnesia by suggestion.
That’s technically aphasia by suggestion, which let’s not go off on that tangent too far yet again, just be mindful that some of the improvements that are out there, I, I’d phrase it this way, and I, I was guilty of this too, at one. You had something go wrong during your session, which will happen. That’s why there’s longer videos online of me teaching the troubleshooting of this and several others as well.
But the unfortunate thing would happen was that you would then think, How do I prevent that every single time? And then you would add in this big chunk as preventative maintenance, when really that might have been this one fluke of an experience. Cuz I’m always gonna approach this. By the mindset that one, there are no resistant clients.
There are only inflexible practitioners, so it’s from the mindset that if something did not go well, I’m not blaming my client. Instead, I’m asking myself, how do I phrase that even better so that they can understand this and get the intended result. So I’m putting all ownership of fault that could occur in all of my process on myself rather than blaming the client.
Whoever’s the most flexible in their communication drives the communication as is the classic NLP pre opposition. That being said, we’re about to add a whole bunch of extra stuff to this. We’re gonna add a whole lot of extra work, and uh, I may do it in full form like two or three times, and let’s do this.
If you go to. Work Smart hypnosis.com/. Elman change and just make that all lowercase in all one word. So work smart hypnosis.com. I didn’t plan to do this, but now we’re going to forward slash elman change, E L M A N C H A N G E. That’ll actually redirect over to the show notes for this episode and these three or so demos of me doing this as a customized process, we’ll get those trans.
And we’ll make those available to you. There’s gonna be a big purple button there and that’s where you can grab those transcriptions. I’m actually recording this on the, uh, let’s be honest here. It’s Valentine’s Day morning at five in the morning. Usually we batch produce in advance, but I shuffled some episodes around cuz I promised my students in the last work Smart Hypnosis live that this would be a podcast session so they could hear more detail on this.
And I’m off to Vegas for the winter conference for the I C B C H, so I’m gonna be programming this on the air. Here we go. Let’s assume it’s a client coming in for, let’s say, stop smoking. Let’s start there and you’re gonna hear how I’m gonna motivate every step of the processor. Let’s be fair, nearly every step of the process, specifically for my stop smoking client, and quite honestly, I’m working.
I’ve just got the outline in front of me. Because I’m not a scripted person, so this is gonna be different every time I do it. So when you download the transcriptions from work smart hypnosis.com/elman change, when you grab the transcriptions from there, keep in mind this is a freestyle approach cuz that’s how I’m working with my clients, trusting the framework and then using that to create the freedom of suggestion.
So don’t treat this as the absolute gospel of how it’s meant to be Sip a coffee and then it’s go time.
Good coffee. There we go. Kate. Don’t edit that out. So here we. Take a look at my hand and just take a nice deep breath in as you can, follow my hand up with your eyes and hold it. And as you exhale, now, notice that eases of breathing as you’re so ready to step into that reality as a non-smoker once and for all.
And I can tell you to go ahead and relax your entire body the same way that up until now, part of your mind believed that cigarette helped you to relax. But rather than relax your entire body, discover this, you can simply right now, just go ahead and relax your eyelid. Just your eyelids. There’s some of the smallest muscles in your face.
There’s some of the smallest muscles in your entire body because for right now, discover that you have this ability, you can be the one to actually go ahead now and relax all those tiny muscles around the eyelids fully and completely. In fact, you can relax those eyelid muscles all the way down to the place where it’s as if they’re so relaxed that they just don’t wanna work as if they could power off like a tv.
As if they could shut down like a computer so that even if you were to try to open those things instead, they can just relax even further down. Kind of like checking a door that’s locked. To make sure it’s still locked. And as you know that you have that ability to make something just not work, give those eyelid muscles a try, and they just relax even further down.
Even if you try to open those things, they just relax even further down. Give ’em a try. They just relax further. You have some people smile at. That’s an interesting sensation and quit testing. And as you send that comfort now down throughout your body, letting all parts of your mind conscious and unconscious, fully embrace, you have this ability to go.
And take something that used to be there and make it just not work. As if finding that control center of your mind and finding that switch that used to regulate that need for cigarettes, and now just simply turning it off, powering it down so it just doesn’t work at all. In fact, while we’re talking about like a light switch, as if you could pull the cables out behind that switch, cut those cables.
So even if you tried to do it, it just wouldn’t work. That’s right because this is a process of following some rather simple instructions. Your mind and body already know what to do. In fact, the truth is if you think back to that very first cigarette, it’s kind of a wonder how the first cigarette is met with coughing and sputtering and discomfort, and it’s even a bit of a mystery to many people who sit in that chair how it was you ever picked it up in the first place, and yet it’s through repetition.
You trained yourself to get over. And it’s where today, this is a process of following some simple instructions. To easily now begin to unravel that old, useless, unnecessary. Because in a moment I’ll have you just simply let the eyes open and close, and the first time we do that, discover this, You can actually allow yourself to relax as much as 10 times deeper, whatever that means to you.
Just now, let the eyelids open and just let ’em close, and as you close ’em on down, notice this, you can allow your mind, your body to relax as much as 10 times deeper relaxing into this reality. That you are now a non-smoker and you can easily be that non-smoker now and for the rest of your life. In fact, we’ll do that a few more times the next time those muscles close.
Discover this. You can actually double the awareness of that chair fully supporting your body. Let the eyes open and let the ice close. Just simply now, double that awareness, Double that comfort so you can feel twice as comfortable, twice as relaxed, twice as aware as to how you’re breathing is already shifting.
Noticing that changing awareness of health as this becomes less and less about my hypnotic suggestions to you. And instead, it becomes more and more about listening to those natural signals from your body that you are now listening to your body, stepping into that life as that person, free of that old behavior once and for all.
And one last time, just let those eyelids open. And as they close, just simply go even deeper down into all of your strength, all of your focus, all of your abilities, and perhaps already realizing this is one of the few times in your life that the measure of success. Is doing absolutely nothing. One of the few times in your life that when you think about other goals in life, so many things require effort and planning and preparation.
And today the measure of success is to walk out that door and not do a thing at all, which is where even if there was some sort of craving, frustration, worry, or whatever it may have been for other people, that’s where most of them kind of catch themselves laughing and realizing, Oh yeah, just do nothing.
I can do this. This is gonna be. And with that in mind, now bring your thoughts over here to this left arm because in a moment I’m gonna reach over and I’ll pick up that arm by the wrist. And you might have already guessed your instructions when I pick it up. Just do nothing when I pick it up, just let it dangle there, like a soaking wet dish rag.
Let it be loose, limp, and lazy like a rag doll. I’ll pick it up and we’ll let it fall. As it falls, just let it plop. Letting that take you even deeper down, helping to solidify the strength, the skill you absolutely. That all you have to do is nothing. As I pick up that arm feel that’s right, I just feel the weight of that arm, like a soaking wet towel, and as it falls, let it just plop.
Proving that reality to yourself that you have every skill necessary to walk out that door and take back control of your health. In fact, today, anytime I pick up that hand and drop it, it just helps to strengthen that reality, strengthen that almost bit of amusement that Oh yeah, just do. And at this point now just a couple of moments end.
We now have all the physical relaxation that we’re gonna need for now. So then now you could begin to relax yourself mentally, because consider that up until recently, perhaps you’ve been fighting with yourself to put those cigarettes down. Perhaps up until recently, you’ve been struggling with your thoughts and those cravings and those desire.
perhaps at times it felt as if there was a battle going on inside of your mind. Should I do this? Should I go back? And none of that matters anymore. All of that matters is that you used to be a smoker, and the fact that you’re here today means that clearly doesn’t work for you anymore. So simply time to let it release.
So rather than fight, rather than struggle, instead, Hmm. Today’s all about helping you to relax that thing away, to relax that old habit and behavior away as if it wasn’t even there in the first place to step into this new reality as if you hadn’t even smoked at all. If that sounds good, just nod your head Yes.
So I know. Yeah, that’s right. Because I’ll show you how easy it is to begin to relax your mind in that way. Because in a moment we’ll have you, in a moment we’ll have you begin to count slowly backwards, out loud from 100. And today, as you do that, just let every number you say help you to double that mental relaxation.
So by the time you reach 98 or maybe even sooner, you can just relax the rest of them out of your mind. As if there’s just nothing. Left account dissipating like that final breath of smoke once and for all breaking away into nothing
because as they are gone, just notice how good you feel as you can begin. Slowly backwards out loud from 100, now 100. Good. Now double that. Mental relax. 99. That’s right. Just getting ready to let everything, It’s time to let go of go 98. And now go ahead. Just relax all of it out of your mind. That’s right.
And as they’re gone, just simply nod your head Yes. So I know. Good, relaxing even deeper into this reality as this non-smoker realizing it’s not so much the idea that you’re now a non-smoker. It’s more so the reality that it just doesn’t fit. It just doesn’t belong. It’s no longer a match with any part of your life, and the process continues.
So there we go. So looking at that, yes, we did add a bit of extra time there. Yet again, every step of the process now having a motivational hook attached to it, which with a little bit. Creativity you can hear as we just kind of reference it indirectly. You know, making things just not work is basically the theme of part one.
So from that specific food cravings specific desires we can address that we can customize to that inside of the epilepsy of the eyes. Deepening process if we’re talking weight loss, sending this mental filter of you at your ideal shape and size down throughout your body. In fact, let’s just do it. Here we go.
Take a look at my, this is weight loss. Take a look at my hand. Take a nice deep breath in, and as you exhale, just let your eyelids close and just becoming aware of your body in that chair, and even before we officially get started, considering this little idea of a statue. that a statue was made by beginning with a block of stone or wood, and simply chipping away, sanding away, polishing away the layers that just don’t belong.
So with each and every step of this process today, that’s exactly what you’re gonna be doing. Not only physically chipping away, sanding away, polishing away the layers of body fat, it’s time to release, but also chipping away, sanding away, polishing away the layers of doubt, concern, or old ideas, that this had to be hard.
Because you may find yourself becoming a little surprised how easy it is to relax into this reality of simply eating right, drinking, right, moving, right, feeling right. Because simply now bring your attention to your eyelids and discover that you have this skill. Simply relax your eyelid muscles all the way down to the place where they can become so relaxed that they just don’t wanna.
And as you know, you can do that. Just simply now test them and satisfy yourself. You can make those eyelid muscles just not work. Give ’em a try, and they just relax even further down. Try to open those things and they just relax even further down. And quit testing and take that same skill and bring your thoughts to some previous craving concern, challenge that used to be there.
And now as simple as you can, relax, the islands relax that old, useless, unnecessary behavior. That even now, even if you try to bring that desire back up, it just kind of flows further and further away. And whether it’s that thought, whether it’s those eyelid muscles, just simply quit testing and send that hypnotic sensation down throughout your body.
Just kind of electrically recharging every muscle fiber nerve, every organ of your body to now crave your best of health. Because this is a process of following some simple instructions and your mind and body already know exactly what to do. I’ll show you what we mean by that, because really you often hear the phrase that people say diets don’t work, and you’ve maybe seen some bit of phrasing online that just wants to drill down that phrase.
Diets don’t. But when you think about it, yes they do. It’s creating some sort of method of what they call the law of thermodynamics, the calories and calories out model. And while the program may work, it’s unfortunately people that don’t always work. So as a result of this brief hypnotic experience, today, we’re gonna make you more effective.
So by following a few simple instructions, You may even surprise yourself just how easy it is to set a plan and easily follow through. Like in a moment, I’ll have you let the eyes open and close back down, and when they close down this first time, discover this. You can actually relax as much as 10 times deeper.
Go ahead now. Just let those eyelets open as they close. Just That’s right. Relax as much as 10 times deeper. Every breath you exhale, helping to guide you to a deeper place of calm focus and. Solidifying every bit of strength throughout you, that you know exactly what to do and you know how to create these changes.
And again, in a moment, we’ll have you let the eyes open and close. And on this next one, discover this. You can actually double the awareness of the chair supporting your body. Let the eyes open. Let the eyes close, and just simply now double the awareness of that chair so you can feel twice as comfortable, twice as relaxed.
Twice as confident in your readiness to chip away, sand away, melt away, that excess body fat that just no longer belongs. And one last time, just let those eyelids open and as they close, just go even deeper into this readiness. Giving yourself permission to let today be different, to not let today be like some other previous attempts of, Oh, I’ll try this.
Oh, I’ll try that. I hope this works. I hope that works. Something beautiful shifts in your mind today as you simply go inside and just give yourself the full permission and authority to become massively successful at this today, to make that decision right now. This is what I’m doing. This is what I’m gonna create.
Enough is enough. And it’s where sometimes you may hear the sounds of things around us, whether it’s cars, parking outside, or doors closing in the office next door. All of those sounds. Begin to matter less and less. In fact, those are sounds that are there as distractions for your conscious mind, allowing these thoughts and suggestions and experiences to go further and further into your unconscious.
Now, in fact, the truth is we’re going to make use of all of those distractions. We’re gonna make use of all of those extra sounds because the truth is, as you walk out that door today, only one thing has changed and that’s you. All of the same triggers, all of the same opportunities, all the same junk you talked about that you don’t want to eat anymore, it’s all gonna still be out there.
And while those things that remain the same, it’s you that changes around them. So the fact that you see that bowl of candy at the office now becomes every reason why you don’t have to go for it. You can just keep walking. It serves no benefit to you anymore. In fact, In a moment, we’re gonna bring your attention over here to this arm.
As I pick that thing up, just let it dangle there. Just realizing. So for a lot of these habits and behaviors that today you’re gonna rapidly change, all you have to do is nothing. So now as I pick that thing up, that’s right. Feel that natural weight as it falls, Just let it plop, solidifying that skill.
That sometimes in life, the measure of success is doing absolutely nothing. So as you mentioned, if it’s that moment watching TV and the commercials come on, even before you find yourself, as you did before, wandering to the fridge, the pantry, looking for something, you simply stop and just refocus, bring your attention to yourself.
It just kind of chuckled yourself and realize, Oh yeah, just do nothing. As again, as I pick up that arm, just let it plop and relax into that reality that all you have to do is. And just like that a couple of moments in, We’ve now got all the physical relaxation that we’re gonna need for now, so that now you could begin to relax yourself mentally, because consider that rather than struggling with your weight, fighting with your health, battling with your goals today, we’re gonna relax away all those old stories that don’t have to hold you back anymore.
Every reason why this used to be a challenge. Can now just simply relax and instead become every reason why I got this. This is gonna be easy. In fact, I’ll show you how, because in a moment you can discover that skill. You have to relax something out of your mind because we’re gonna have you begin to count slowly, backwards, out loud from 100.
And today, when you do that, just let it be different from any time in your life you’ve ever counted before. Because with every number that you say, notice that you can double that mental relaxation. So by the time you reach 98, probably even sooner, you can just relax the rest of them out of your mind as if there’s just nothing left to count.
Because when they are gone, notice the strength. You have to create any change in your. As you could begin, slowly backwards out loud from 100, now 100. Good. Now double that. Mental relaxation. 99. Getting rid of all those things that just no longer belong. 98. Now just simply relax into that health and as they’re gone, just nod your head Yes.
So I know. Good. And there we go. Customized for weight loss. Which, uh, if you look at it again, bringing in some filters and bits of pattern we’ve picked up over the years, the way that we can talk about the change and embracing the fact that, again, the induction is not just the thing you have to get through to then talk about the change the entire process.
I put a little bit of a preamble at the beginning of that based on a metaphor of a statue, which now meant I can now incorporate it into the. We’re a little longer on time than I was expecting for this episode. This was meant to be a quick one, but hey, let’s do one more and you’re gonna see some themes.
So this one may be a little bit more abridged than the others because we’ve dealt with habits and behaviors. Let’s now go with emotions. Let’s go fear of public speaking, and this will round out the episode. And again, work smart hypnosis.com/all, lowercase, all one word. Elman change, E L M A N change.
That’s where you can get the transcriptions of these three Elman demos that are customized. So the public speaking one, I have done this one in a while, but let’s do it. Take a look at my hand. Take a nice deep breath in as you follow my hand up and hold that breath as you exhale. Now, just let those eyelids close, and as you close those eyelids down, bring your awareness to that body.
Because as a result of this hypnotic experience we’re about to share together, we are actually going to heighten the awareness of all of your sense. So whether it’s the feeling of your own voice resonating in the chambers of your body, that feeling is gonna trigger that confidence, that feeling is gonna activate that strength within you, whether it’s that event that used to be the challenge of looking out into the crowd and seeing the faces of those people looking at.
Instead now that’s gonna become every reason you enjoy that presentation, you enjoy that interaction because really today is about helping you to change your mind. And with that in mind, go ahead now and just a simple instruction. Relax your eyelids, relax those tiny muscles around your eyelids fully and completely, because you can be the one to relax all those tiny muscles all the way down to the place where you know you can make those things.
Just not. As you know, you can do that simply now. Test them and satisfy yourself. You can power those things down. Give ’em a try. They just relax even further. Try to open and they just relax even further down and quit testing. And as early as right. Now, this quickly into our time together today, notice that as you bring your attention to that new level of comfort you’ve created in your body, as you hold onto that feeling, Even if you try to reproduce that old anxious sensation, it just flows further and further away as early as now, just a moment or two into our time together.
Even if you try to recreate that old nervous feeling, it just kind of drifts further and further away as that comfort rises even greater, even stronger. Sending all these good positive sensations down throughout your body, relaxing more and more simply because you choose. Because this is a process of following some simple instructions.
Your mind and body already know what to do. The same way that now that this fear, now that this challenge is gone stepping into this reality that public speaking is a skill, that the more you do it, the more effective you become at it. And it’s how part of your mind begins to shift its focus. That this becomes less and less about resolving a fear, and instead more and more about sharpening your message.
Giving your best of delivery and making sure that audience understands what it is that you’re there to share. So with each and every opportunity, you find that time to speak to the crowd. You find that comfort increasing more and more, that skill increasing, like a muscle that grows stronger every time you make use of it.
In fact, we can kind of flex that hypnosis muscle now briefly, because in a moment we’ll have you let the eyes open and. And when they close this first time, discover this. You can actually allow yourself to relax as much as 10 times deeper, whatever that means for you. Let the eyelids open, let the eyelids close, and that’s right.
Just relax 10 times deeper into that comfort, 10 times deeper into the awareness of your own breathing as the sensation of your own breathing helps you. Define that greater clarity of your presentation. Let your voice fill the space. The feeling of your own voice resonating in the chambers of your body becoming every reason I got this.
This is gonna be easy as again, let those eyelids open, and as they close, just simply now double that awareness so you can feel twice as comfortable, twice as supported, twice as confident in your readiness to deliver this message to the best of your abilities. And one last time, just let those eyelids open and just let ’em close, and just go even deeper down, deeper into this comfort, deeper into this strength, deeper into this readiness that the feeling of the ground beneath your feet, the feeling of your own voice resonating in your own body, becoming every reason why you find that voice filling the room, the confidence, soaring, and easily delivering that message with ease.
And throughout this time together with me, you may hear sounds outside, whether it’s cars, parking, or people walking around in offices next door. The truth is, all of those sounds begin to matter less and less. In fact, we keep those around as distractions for that part of your mind that used to get caught up in that old, useless, unnecessary way of thinking.
Because the difference now becomes these extraneous distractions. Whether it’s someone coughing, whether it’s someone on their phone, texting when they shouldn’t. Whether it’s people moving around the space, all of these things now bring all of your attention back to the core of your message, the interaction with the audience that’s there, and it helps you to feel even more confident and realize The cool thing about today is that the measure of success is walking outta that door today and something not happening.
The measure of success is walking outta that door and realizing something’s not there. Basically realizing all you have to do is nothing. How I’ve even told you, there’s stories of people who were kind of amused by the fact that they were perhaps previously a fear of elevators and confused in the elevator going, I don’t understand it.
I’m bored now, what does that mean? And I had to respond. That means you did this. You succeeded . So the measure of success today, all you have to do is nothing. So with that in mind, I’ll reach over, I’ll pick up that right arm as I pick up that thing. Just let it dangle there. Just simply do. As it falls, just let it plop.
Whenever we do that notice, that just helps you go even deeper, relax. Let that thing be heavy, loose, limp, and lazy. That’s right. As it falls, just let it plop and go even deeper down. In fact, anytime we pick up that hand and drop it, it just helps you to relax these old unnecessary patterns away because just like that, only a couple of moments in, we now have all the physical relaxation that we need for now, because really today’s about helping you to relax yourself mentally.
Rather than fight, rather than battle, rather than struggle with those old fears and anxieties, instead you’re about to relax them completely away as if they weren’t even there in the first place. If that sounds good, just nod your head yes. So I know. Good. Because in a moment we’ll have you count differently than perhaps you’ve ever counted.
Before that you’ll count backwards from a hundred, but with every number you say, let the mind grow more calm and seren. Almost like the surface of a still lake is with every number. You say, let the mind relax into this reality that it’s your voice, it’s your message. And really this presentation is an opportunity to convey with passion something that you know is important.
And you’ll find that likely sometime before the count of 98, maybe even sooner, you can just relax the rest of those things away as if there’s just nothing left account. Because when they’re gone, notice how good you feel. As you can begin, slowly backwards out loud from a hundred, now 100. Good. Now double that.
Mental relaxation. 99. That’s right. Just getting ready to let all these unnecessary challenges go. 98. Now just relax into that confidence within you, and as they’re gone, just nod your head so I know. Good. Doing great. And there we go. So three variations on a similar theme. Basically, take these principles though and realize you can take all of this.
So this was not meant to be a lesson on the day development induction. However, what do we do here? This is the way that I teach hypnosis. If we think about it in terms of process, the same way that the catch phrase in hypnotic business systems, my business training is that frameworks equal freedom. And as soon as we have the framework, we can break away from.
When we choose to. So take everything that we’ve just now covered together and apply this to your instant induction. Yes. Because in a matter of moments, you can completely change your track of thinking. Major life changes happen in just a few moments, and the same way that I simply said a word and I dropped your hand and you instantly and automatically went into that hypnotic state is the same way that realizing today, change happens at the speed of thought and you can shift your mind towards what you want.
Now rather than what you don’t want, take the same principle, apply it to a progressive muscle relaxation. Now there’s motivation the entire way through. So I want to hear your feedback on this, that this is really the first time in a public forum. I’ve been talking about this and really teaching it, and yes, it got a bit of an unofficial stamp of approval from the elements, but really I want to hear where you take it as well.
I want to hear your variations and your success with this strategy. So like anything, even when someone, you know, goes through all of my trainings and picks up every program online, I say, There’s one rule for this, you’ve gotta use it.
