[Following induction and deepening:] Now that things are becoming deeper and easier with every minute, I'm going to tell you about the pleasant, interesting experience you're about to have. You may wish to listen very carefully to the interesting things I'm about to tell you, but they'll register in your unconscious mind whether you pay close attention, or just sit back and watch the hands of the clock going round and round in reverse. You've probably begun to feel that pleasant, quiet air of expectation, something like kids feel when they know they're about to get a present with no strings attached; before they know it, the birthday is there, even if it seems far in the future or long ago.
