Free Hypnosis Scripts
Many of these scripts are in the public domain and have been collated on this site for use by clinical hypnotherapists, hypnotists, hypnosis students, stage hypnotists and those enthusiasts who are interested in the hypnotic arts.
It is strongly suggested that hypnosis enthusiasts use these scripts for their own “self” hypnosis recordings, rather than creating recordings for other people. If you do not have certification or have not done formal training, consider doing the free hypnosis course. If you are a hypnotherapy / hypnosis student, also consider doing the free hypnosis course — will also find there are many useful tips that might give you an edge on your fellow students.
Commercial script usage: If no author appears on the script or there is no copyright notice, you may assume the script is in the public domain and you may use it for any purpose. But we cannot guarantee it. You take full responsibility for any script you use from this site. If a script does have a copyright or is attributed to an author, you should only use it in a therapeutic setting or for your own personal recording. You should not use copyrighted scripts or scripts attributed to authors to create audio products for sale, without the express written permission of the author. Do not contact this website seeking permission to use the script for resale, we cannot give it to you. Instead, take the time to track down the author and contact them directly.

How to Use These Scripts
To use these scripts:
Select a script. Highlight the script and copy it. Paste it into a Word (processor) document. Add the scripts in the following order 0-5. Edit to suit your situation, print off the script and use.
Choose a script from these sections:
If you are making a recording, you MUST use the introduction or you can word your own. It is important to always include an introduction such as this at the start of any hypnosis or relaxation recording — just in case someone should listen to your recording at a time when it is not advisable — such as driving a car or operating machinery.
This is the initial relaxation script. An induction is to help ‘induce’ relaxation. For example, the script may ask you to close your eyes and relax your scalp muscles. In this case, (and there are other styles of induction scripts), the script may start at the scalp, to muscles at the back of the head, the muscles around the eyes, cheeks, the jaw, neck… all the way down to the tips of the toes. Some prefer to go the other way, from the toes to the head.
Allows you to relax deeper than you were during the induction phase. There may be suggestions such as ‘as every minute passes’, or ‘every noise you hear allows you to relax deeper than before’. A popular deepening script is to ‘imagine three steps that take you down… and with the first step you take, now, relax much more deeply than you were just a few moments ago…’
This script will have suggestions to assist you to achieve your objective, whatever it may be. Look for positive suggestions that work with your imagination, as opposed to ones that say you will do ‘this’ or you will do ‘that’. Generally, positive suggestions such as imagine yourself in a situation where you are a non-smoker is preferable to “cigarettes make you feel ill” – while it may work to help stop you smoking, it may also cause a reaction when, for example, you might be on a crowded train and smell cigarette smoke on a person nearby…
This terminating script will bring you back to full awareness by ending your trance. An awakening script often involves a count from one to five, and to allow the ‘energy’ to return. Should you record one such as this, when you count ‘up’ from one to five make sure you increase the energy in your voice so that you come back to full conscious awareness full of energy and vigour. (There is an alternative to the ‘Awakening Script’ and that is by recording a script to enable you to drift off to sleep. This may be a preferable alternative for those who are doing a self hypnosis recording to assist with sleep or insomnia).
Record the scripts to a suitable equipment in a quiet environment. It is difficult to find a quiet environment where you won’t hear back-gound noise.
Once you have recorded them play your recording back to yourself. Test it out by finding a quiet, comfortable place; close your eyes and simply follow your suggestions.
Remember, if you have recorded the script for you, when you listen to it, allow yourself to really get involved and follow and accept the suggestions.
These tips come from changework. com – a website that no longer exists.
changeworker writes, “Many years ago when I first started studying hypnosis, I was amazed at the fluidity highly skilled hypnotists were able to flow and develop a deep trance with subjects affecting change as they spoke to the clients especially those like the legendary hypnotist Milton Erickson, or his studious protege’s like Lankton or Yapko. You like me, probably wondered how you can develop these verbal flowing skills quickly and easily yet when we first tried at first to flow…well…you didn’t. You like me, probably struggled with developing the verbal skills, and I certainly wished that I had these tips when I first got started. Here, are a few tips I found that are effective for developing these verbal skills…
Some of the useful tips I found are:
- Start collecting hypnosis scripts and reading them. This is very useful as a starting point.
- Create a dictionary or reference list of commonly used words and phrases from the scripts your studying. A vocabulary IS one of the most important asset for verbal flow.
- Write a NEW script based on the reference scripts you found. Then rewrite the script again. Milton Erickson, when he was studying hypnosis would first start with a script that would be at first 10 pages of text. Then he would rewrite the script and it would be then 5 pages, then a page, then half a page. By the time he was done, he would have the script ingrained within his own dialogue, usually, only a few words.
- Share your scripts with others.
The best way to share the scripts is to read them OUT LOUD. There are obviously more things to keep in mind and do when writting and developing your verbal skills and your languaging, but regardless of what techniques you know, there is no substitute or short cut for study, practice and hard work. It ultimately will pay off and you’ll feel a great sense of accomplishment knowing that.
