You can close your eyes now …

And begin breathing deeply and slowly …

Before you let go completely, and go into a deep hypnotic state, just let yourself listen carefully to everything I say to you … 

It’s going to happen automatically …

So you don’t need to think about that now …

And you will have no conscious control over what happens …

The muscles in and around your eyes will relax all by themselves as you continue breathing …

Easily and freely …

Without thinking about it, you will soon enter a deep, peaceful, hypnotic trance, without any effort …

There is nothing important for your conscious mind to do …

There is nothing really important except the activities of your subconscious mind …

And that can be just as automatic as dreaming …

And you know how easily you can forget your dreams when you awaken …

You are responding very good. Without noticing it, you have already altered your rate of breathing …

You are breathing much more easily and freely …

And you are revealing signs that indicate you are beginning to drift into a hypnotic trance …

You can really enjoy relaxing more and more, and your subconscious mind will listen to each word I say …

And it keeps becoming less important for you to consciously listen to my voice …

Your subconscious mind can hear even if I whisper …

You are continuing to drift into a more detached state as you examine privately in your own mind …

Secrets, feelings, sensations, and behavior you didn’t know you had …

At the same time, letting go completely …

Your own mind is solving that problem …

At your own pace …

 Just as rapidly as it feels you are ready …

You continue becoming more relaxed and comfortable as you sit there with your eyes closed …

As you experience that deepening comfort you don’t have to move, or talk, or let anything bother you …

Your own inner mind can respond automatically to everything I tell you …

and you will be pleasantly surprised with your continuous progress…

You are getting much closer to a deep hypnotic trance …

And you are beginning to realize that you don’t care whether or not you are going into a deep trance …

Being in this peaceful state enables you to experience the comfort of the hypnotic trance…

Being hypnotized is always a very enjoyable, very pleasant, calm, peaceful, completely relaxing experience …

It seems natural … to include hypnosis in your future …

Every time I hypnotize you it keeps becoming more enjoyable, and you continue experiencing more benefits …

So you will really enjoy having me hypnotize you …

You will always enjoy the sensations …

Of comfort …

Of peacefulness …

Of calmness …

And all the other sensations that come automatically from this wonderful experience …

You will be really happy that you decided to have me hypnotize you …

As you continue experiencing progressive understanding on your part …

You are learning something about yourself …

You are developing your own techniques of therapy …

Without knowing you are developing them …

You can have it as a surprise sooner or later …

A very pleasant surprise …

Imagine yourself in a place you like very much …

By a lake, or by the ocean …

Perhaps you are floating gently on a sailboat on a peaceful lake …

On a warm, summer day …

You are continuing to relax even more now …

And you continue becoming more comfortable …

This is your own world that you like very much …

You are going to find that any time you want to spend a few minutes by yourself, relaxing, and feeling very comfortable and serene, you can automatically go back to this feeling you’re experiencing now …

You can put yourself into this world anytime you like …

There are times when you will want this serene feeling …

And it is yours whenever you want it …

Continue enjoying this pleasant experience as your subconscious mind is receiving everything I tell you …

And you will be pleased the way you automatically respond to everything I say.
