Sample text

If the subject should manifest any signs of discomfort or distress which cannot be alleviated in the manner just described, the proceedings should be smoothly terminated by suggesting that the subject's eyes will be open by the count of three, and that he will be fully restored to an everyday experience of consciousness by that time. When the count has been completed, the subject may be asked what seemed to be bothering him. Occasionally, for example, hypnotic or sleeping suggestions will tend to remind a subject of going under an anesthetic, perhaps when he had his tonsils removed as a child; and this association may cause some of the previously felt discomfort and anxiety to return (Hilgard, Hilgard, & Newman, 1961).

I have found it most convenient to simply tell the subject that trance induction techniques do not work with everyone, but that such an approach is certainly well worth trying, since if it does work it will be very useful indeed. Such statements do not seem to act as prejudicial suggestions in themselves, arousing expectations of the possibility of failure in such a manner as to increase the likelihood of failure actually occurring; for most subjects respond with apparent interest and curiosity to see whether or not the induction will be effective, and perhaps with some eagerness to accept what they perceive to be a slight challenge.

As you approach nearer and nearer to the High Altar, you can feel your awareness and your capacity for experience becoming infinitely greater than it could possibly be in any other state.
