Deepening the trance
This article contains one or more scripts intended to be used with a hypnotised subject. Before using these scripts make sure that you have a good understanding of how to hypnotise someone, how to wake them up from a trance, how to give post-hypnotic suggestions, AND ESPECIALLY how to cancel post-hypnotic suggestions.

Going from being awake to being in a trance does not happen in an instant. When you hypnotise someone they firstly go into a light trance. You then have to go through a process of deepening the trance to get them into a deep and workable trance.
If you have already read the depth of trance article elsewhere on this site, you'll know that a light trance is enough for your partner to feel good, and possibly to have interesting and pleasing sexual responses. It does tend to leave them being very relaxed and somewhat like a dead fish. They generally can't actively participate in your mutual sexual activities, and this means you end up doing all the work. This might be OK once or twice, but for a rewarding and sexual time with hypnosis, you both need to be actively involved.
Your partner will start to be able to physically join in once they are in a deeper trance.
The depth of trance article gives some ways you can test how deeply hypnotised your partner is.
I generally find that the best process to get someone into a deep trance is:
- Test, then
To deepen my partner's trance I have a couple of favourites:
With the deepening technique I tell my partner to imagine that they are at the of a set of stairs going down into a mist. It goes like this:
I want you to imagine now that you are standing at the top of a set of stairs leading down into a white mist. There's nothing frightening about this mist and, in a moment when I tell you to do so, I want you to start going down the steps, one at a time, into the mist. Each step down you take will also take you deeper into this trance.
OK. Start going down the steps. With each step down you'll go deeper into this trance and become more responsive to my commands.
You're going down the steps now. And you're going deeper into this trance. Each step means you're deeper in this trance. Going deeper and deeper. Deeper and deeper. With every step you go deeper into this trance.
Now sit back and relax. You're no longer on the stairs. You're sitting comfortably here with me again, and you're relaxed and still going deeper.
The descending hand
In a similar vein, with the descending hand technique I get my partner to associate how high their hand is with how deeply hypnotised they are. It goes like this:
OK. On the count of three I want you to hold your right arm straight out in front of you. Lift your right arm and hold it out in front of you on the count of three.
One... Two... Three.
Good. Now, as I talk to you, your right arm is going to slowly start moving down towards your lap. You'll feel your right arm moving down as I talk to you, and as it goes down you'll feel yourself going more deeply into this trance with it. The more your arm moves down the deeper into this trance you will go.
Your arm is moving down now. You feel it moving, and as it does you're going more deeply into this trance.
Deeper and deeper. As your arm and hand continue down toward your lap you go deeper into this trance.
When their hand reaches their lap you say:
Good. Just relax now. Relax your arm completely and continue deeper into this trance.
