Dave Elman Induction
Gil Boyne Version (Two-Finger Technique)
Spoken to the subject..
For the moment.. rest your arms limply on your thighs, just like this (demonstrate). Now.. I want you to look out here at my hand. In a moment.. I’m going to bring my hand up in front of your eyes like this.. (Demonstrate.. bringing index and middle finger of right hand, in a pointing V position to a position just above their eyebrows) When I do.. I’ll pass my hand down in front to your eyes. Keep your eyes fixed on my fingers. As I pass my hand down, let your eyelids close down. (Bring hand straight down with one finger over each eye)
(Move fingers to a pointing V position just above the eyebrows so the subject has to look up at an angle to see your fingertips – Sonny also does this for his Stage Show inductions watch closely on the videos!) All right.. now fix your eyes on my fingers. Now I’m passing my hand down in front of your eyes, and as I do.. let your eyelids close down. (move hand straight down, one finger moving down over each eye)
Now.. your eyelids are closed down. I want you to relax every tiny muscle and nerve in and around your eyelids. I want you to relax them so much that they wouldn’t work even if you wanted them to.
Now.. when you know that you’ve relaxed them so much that they wouldn’t work even if you wanted them to.. test them.. you’ll see you’ve been completely successful! Now relax them so much that they wouldn’t work even if you wanted them to.. Now.. test them.. you’ll see you’ve been completely successful! (If they open their eyes, tell them to relax them again, this time more completely and test again)
Ok.. now stop trying.. and just relax and allow yourself to drift deeper and deeper. Now I’m going to raise your hand. I will do it by grasping your right thumb in my fingers like this. (grasp thumb between thumb and index fingers) As I lift your hand.. just let it hang limply in my fingers..
Then when I drop it.. let it drop..like a wet rag. And when your hand touches your body.. as it drops, send a wave of relaxation from the top of your head all the way down to the tips of your toes.. Doubling your present level of relaxation with each breath.. deeper and deeper
Repeat the Hand Drop with each hand until you can sense tension and resistance diminish to the point where you’re ready to continue..
So that’s it guys.. Eye Lock – test – Deepen
