So what is some hypnotic induction techniques. basically anything that will quite the conscience mind, bore the conscience mind. Remember the conscienceless just go over the conscience mind is ten percent of the brain, sub conscience is ninety percent.

An eye fixation tiring the eyes you can roll your eyes your eyes back up in your head and stare at a spot of the ceiling or stare up somebody's hand that's just above your eyes kind of closer to your forehead and just starring at that spot maybe taking a deep breath or two. And as the eyes get tired and start to blink they will close down that induces hypnosis. Taking somebody in their mind down an elevator or escalator or stairs if at all is deepening the state but just having go down the stairs. As they see the stairs they visualize and then they begin to feel tired. Listening to quite a music and allowing yourself to drift off to daydream. That also gets you into be ready to be in hypnosis.
