Affirmation Induction Script

Breathing Affirmation Induction

Technique: The Affirmation Induction was developed by David Mason as a way of hypnotizing clients who would not or could not relax enough for normal induction methods. It is a very gentle induction method that uses the body's natural relaxation response to put the client into trance without anxiety or fears of losing control. You use the affirmation wording to put whatever idea you want to into the client's mind, while at the same time inducing trance.

Advantages: It works well even for analytical people who normally are hard to hypnotize. It prevents their over active minds and constant self talk from interfering with the induction process. It also has the advantage that the actual words can be varied to suit each individual.

Disadvantages:  The hypnotist needs to be able to recognize when trance has been achieved as there is little feedback from the client.

Extensions: The affirmation breathing induction is better and more efficient than the mantra inductions used for meditation. It is very effective for hypnotizing yourself. It is a very good way of teaching self hypnosis to clients.

You can make up any pair of affirmations: for weight loss, or smoking or anything you like as long as they are brief and easy to say.
