The title is a little deceiving, in reality, we are hypnotized all the time without us even realizing it. That is a different topic for a different day. Today, I am talking about watching people come out of hypnosis for the first time, or the first time with me. This is my reward for my work.
I am sitting in a darkened room with relaxing music on, taking my client through a journey of the subconscious. I am focused on my words. It is very quiet and peaceful for me and although my client is nearby, I feel alone in the room.
I find myself saying the words “In a moment, I will count from 1 to 5. At the count of 5, you will awaken, feeling wonderful in every way.” I know that in a minute, I will be rejoined by my client.
I get to 5 and the music stops. I watch eyes flutter open, a breath taken, a smile and a stretch. Usually I hear a “wow” or other similar word.
It amazes me every time and I love seeing it. I feel as good as my client does, their happiness radiates to me.
