What is an induction? What do you say during the induction? An induction is the formal ceremony with a goal to elicit a hypnotic response from the subject or hypnotee. The subject or hypnotee may carry out the formal ceremony normally presented by a hypnotist. Hypnosis can and does exist even without the formal ceremony or induction. This concept is hard for people to understand. But it is true. The induction is a signal that hypnosis is coming. You had better get ready! This is when your belief system and your expectation of hypnosis come into clear focus.
What do you say during the induction? Anything you wish! I will list the basic parts of a typical induction or ceremony, for you. This will include what you do and what you say to your subject. The procedures used in this book will be at night before both of you go to sleep. However, you can administer these suggestions at any time during the day. Instead of counting down during the end of the induction and telling your subject to sleep at the "count of five," you will be telling your subject to awaken at the "count of five."

Hypnosis has been defined as a state of heightened suggestibility in which the subject is able to uncritically accept ideas for self-improvement and act on them appropriately. When a hypnotist hypnotizes his subject, it is known as hetero-hypnosis. When an individual puts himself into a state of hypnosis, it is known as self-hypnosis.
