After your induction and a guided imagery that includes information received from your interview and he NGH BASIC Assessment you can use the following pain script or go directly to the Hartland script and use information gathered to put into the … spots.
With every breath you take in, allow yourself to relax more deeply and more comfortably as you continue to focus on the sound of my voice and each breath you take. Only you know what relaxation feels like to you so only you can create it… Only you can remember what comfort feels like so let your body and every cell in your body remember what it feels like to be comfortable. As you change your thinking in this way you begin to rewire your brain to send out different chemicals to make changes in the body’s responses in the same way of thinking about eating a lemon can make your jaw hurt and/or cause an increase in salivation. Imagine to yourself – I am relaxed, I am comfortable, I am in control. The Chinese say a picture is worth a 1000 words so think – What does relaxation, comfort, control look like and keep that image in your mind as I speak and with every breath you take.
Only you can create calmness and develop a clear sense of what will change in your life as you continue to allow yourself to take control of comfort, sleep and exercise.
I wonder if you’ll decide to create a coolness, a warmth or a soothing color throughout your body or if your decision will to subconsciously see this discomfort as a benefit? In all probability you will determine what you create and what you feel within your body according to which gives you the larger benefit.
One of the first things you can become aware off… is the fact that only you are aware at this time of what your comfort level is… but as I speak and as you create within your mind different thoughts and different images of how you want to feel… I would like you to appreciate the fact that through your thoughts you are in control of your mind and of your body. Therefore, the more you focus your thoughts on my voice… the more you will have control over how comfortable you choose to be.
I wonder if you’ll be reminded of a time… a time in your past when you were aware… of how comfortable your body could be. Perhaps even now you’re beginning to notice either heaviness or a lightness of your body… and I wonder just how you will experience the coolness/warmness and the calmness that I mentioned earlier.
(Name) you know better than anyone your ability to create coolness, comfort and calmness. I wonder if you have begun to notice yet… that your body is becoming more relaxed… and I wonder which is more relaxed your left side or your right side… your left side over there your right side over here… and that area which in the past was uncomfortable… is it there is a here… is it close? Is it far?
I can remember looking through binoculars and seeing how large things would become. I wonder if you noticed that when you think of that place of discomfort that it is like looking through binoculars. It gets so big… so close… almost as if it is right up on you… yet… I wonder how surprised you will be when you discover that if you turn those binoculars around… how distant… how far away… how tiny… what you’re looking at becomes.
I wonder if you can imagine or just pretend… maybe even… role-play as if you are a child… turning the binoculars around looking through the big end and seeing how distant… how tiny that area of discomfort becomes when you look at it in a totally and completely different way.
I would like for you to imagine now that your feet are like vacuums… and they begin to suck up into your body… starting at the ankles and the lower part of your legs… then up into your knees… and into your thighs… every cell is filling with this cool orange colored magnetic liquid… now moving into your hips… into your pelvic area and into your abdomen… all the organs all the cells of your abdomen… and now it flows into your lungs and into your chest and I wonder how surprised you will be to discover how easily it is to breathe with your lungs filled with this cool orange colored magnetic liquid.
Now I know and I know that you know… that there are areas of your body that something warm would be more pleasing than coolness… therefore, it is OK to replace the coolness in those areas with a sense of warmth… that’s right… you’re doing so very well allowing every breath to continue to allow you to drift gently and peacefully into this wonderful state of hypnotic rest.
And now as the chest continues to feel that warm or cool orange colored liquid… that magnetic liquid… it begins to flow over into your arms… from your fingertips all the way up to your shoulders… every cell, every vessel, every part of your body now from your neck down fills with this warm or cool orange colored liquid… this magnetic liquid.
I wonder what you will discover… as this cool orange colored magnetic liquid fills your head… all of your head… your ears… your eyes… your sinuses… and even your brain.
It may be that you are already aware… of how the coolness… of this orange colored magnetic liquid… has already begun creating comfort and calmness.
I am sure that you are aware of what magnets do… and I think you’re going to enjoy being surprised to discover that it’s OK …to allow that magnetic orange liquid… to pull from every cell… the anxiety… the tension… and the discomforts that are located there… YOU… are worthy of allowing yourself the comfort that comes from letting this amazing orange colored magnetic liquid… this cool and soothing liquid… to pull from every cell of your body anxiety, tension and discomfort.
You have the right to be comfortable… allow every cell now to remember what normal feels like… I wonder how surprised you will be… when you think back to a time… a time in your past… when you can remember being able to do the things you like to do…
I wonder just what that thing may be… only you know if it’s a sport…a hobby or even your job. It really doesn’t matter what it is or was … all that matters is that you allow your thoughts… allow your memories to focus on that time in your past. I’ll give you a few moments now to focus on that time… that happy memory… that comfortable memory…
So that you can imprint that memory on every sale of your body and… and as you do so that cool or warm orange colored magnetic liquid will continue to pull from every cell… the anxiety… the tension… and the discomfort so that you can replace those uncomfortable memories with the memories of comfort… serenity… tranquility in every cell
Do that now while I’m silent as you go deeper and deeper… (just a few moments of its silence).
Wonderful… I am so proud of how well you’re doing… now allow your fingers and your toes to be like water faucets… open them up and allow that cool or warm orange colored magnetic liquid to drain from your body… leaving behind cells that are restored with comfortable… relaxed… calm… and peaceful feelings.
Now each and every cell of your body knows what normal is. I wonder how surprised you are to discover how wonderful it feels to remember what normal is… what comfort is.
It is OK now to let go and to enjoy the fact that you have the right and that you are worthy off feeling your best.
It is OK to let go of guilt…just let it go.
Allow yourself to have forgiveness for yourself and others. Forgiveness does not mean you condone what was done, but it breaks the chain that let others control you and most of all it takes the pain out of the memory.
(And Continue with the suggestions for self-hypnosis at home and emerge now in whatever method you as the hypnotist prefer to use)
(You can now emerge with anchors or continuing the hypnosis suggestions, metaphors and imagery)
I wonder if your discomfort was a color what color would it be? You may be surprised at what happens is you visualize that color fading away getting lighter and lighter until either becomes white or clear. Try that why I am silent.
Give an anchor: Common ones are “Every time you see the color red it will remind you that you have stopped the old response… behavior… feelings… and habits.” or “Every time you see or hear water you will become calm and comfortable.”
Emergence from hypnosis
After emergence from hypnosis talk for a few minutes about what they experienced and use this information with next sequence of suggestions – what they liked – what they didn’t like.
Practice Self Hypnosis Step # 1 from NGH Scriptsand give them a written copy from the NGH Certification Book # 1 listed here:
SELF HYPNOSIS STEP 1 – PRE-SLEEP TECHNIQUE
From NGH Certification course book 1
- When you go to bed, starting tonight and continuing for the next 7 days, just before you are ready to fall asleep – give yourself the following suggestion 10 times:
“Every day, in every way, I am better and better”
While you are saying the suggestion, imagine what “Better” is!
- In order not to fall asleep and not to lose count, every time you say the suggestion press down with each finger of your right hand. Then, continue with each finger of your left hand until you’ve complete the suggestion 10
- This may be your first attempt at learning to effectively program yourself through suggestion. It is of the utmost importance to do this exercise every night without falling asleep until you’ve completed the 10
- You are beginning to establish a habit pattern of properly programming yourself by giving yourself positive suggestions before going to sleep. The next day, you’ll find yourself reacting very positively to that
Do a debrief
- What did they experience?
- How long do they think it took?
- What did they like best?
- What did they like least?
- I send them home with the Emile Coue’ book My Method in order to impress upon them the importance of self-talk.
- I instruct them to do the breathing technique once every
- I instruct them and allow them to practice the first stealth in the NGH self- hypnosis
Collect fee and make next appointment – I like to see them within 2 days, but many people will see them weekly. The key is to keep them from doing a self-sabotage or their family and friends sabotaging them.
I often see what I call intensives. These are clients that will come and spend a week with me, and during that week I will see them two hours Monday morning of Monday afternoon, two hours Tuesday morning and Tuesday afternoon, two hours Wednesday morning, two hours Thursday morning and Thursday afternoon, and two hours on Friday morning and released them on Friday afternoon. These are clients that come from a distance and spend a week for hypnosis.
