These techniques are based on a progressive relaxation hypnotic induction. You may find that when practicing these techniques, you will induce a light state of self- hypnosis. This is perfectly OK and normal if this happens. You will also find that you are completely aware and in control if you do go into a light state of self hypnosis. This just meaning that you can emerge yourself any time you wish by simply opening your eyes.
I hear this quite often. “I can’t be hypnotized.” Sometimes this is being said as a defense mechanism due to fear of hypnosis and, sadly, sometimes this is being said because another hypnotist did not have the skill-set to properly induce hypnosis, leaving the failure on the client.
