We’ve all heard of how anyone can do hypnosis and how anyone can be put under a hypnotic state. Well, just how accurate is this statement? When can you truly say, “You are under my hypnotic spell?”
In this article, you’ll learn some of the telltale signs of a person under a hypnotic state. Never mind if your subject tells you that they don’t feel being hypnotized. The thing is, the hypnotic state is nothing out of the ordinary.
In fact, it happens to us more often than we realize it. Once you familiarize yourself with these signs, you’ll be able to confidently say, “You are under my hypnotic spell.”
The Obvious Signs
Some signs of a hypnosis state are easily read in a person’s body language or involuntary action. You can look out for fluttering of eyelids, relaxation of muscles and a bit of redness in a person’s eye upon opening them. You can also check if some body parts like the leg are twitching.
The Subtle Signs
Other signs are not as easy to detect. These signs can be in the form of feeling or something you can’t know unless you ask.
Before you point your finger at your subject and say, “You are under my hypnotic spell,” you must first check to see if your subject has a hard time swallowing.
See if there is a sudden change in the breathing. Is he or she breathing faster or slower than normal? Does your subject feel a slight tingling sensation? If the answers to these questions are a resounding yes, then you are at liberty to say, “You are under my hypnotic spell.”
These telltale signs permit you to say those 6 simple words that always seem to be a staple in many hypnotic sessions. At least, now, you know the obvious and not-so-obvious signs you can observe before telling your subject, “You are under my hypnotic spell.”
