Hypnotic Yoga Breathing Deepener
by Jon Rhodes

 

 
I am a big fan of using yoga type breathing techniques for hypnotic deepening work. In my experience a patient can really 'feel' a physical relaxation sensation from these techniques, allowing them to become very deeply relaxed. These very real physical sensations of relaxation can also help increase a subjects' faith in the session, allowing their mind to more open to the challenges of change. Here is an example of a yoga style breathing exercise used as a deepener.

…I would like you to now concentrate on your breathing…really focus on your breathing…

...Notice how the air that you breath in...is cooler than the air that you breath out...

…And as you continue to focus on your breathing…I would like you to fix your gaze on a spot or point on the wall or ceiling…any spot will do…it could even be an object…just focus your eyes on this spot and concentrate on this spot as much as you can…

…Now I would like you to do a yoga breathing exercise to help you relax deeper and deeper…I would like you to alternate breathing with your left and right nostrils…

…I would like you to follow this pattern…

…Breathe in through your left nostril…and breathe out through your right nostril…

…Breathe in through your right nostril…and breath out through your left nostril…

…Breathe in through your left nostril…and breathe out through your right nostril…

…Breathe in through your right nostril…and breath out through your left nostril…

…Repeat this cycle for a few moments…whilst continuing to focus on that point…

…And you should quickly find that your eyes are becoming more heavy and tired as you relax deeper and deeper…sometimes people experience slight distortions in their vision…seeing strange colours and shapes…if you experience this, then that is fine…just continue to breathe alternating your nostrils…

…And your eyes may now feel very tired…like at times when you try and stay awake…but struggle…the more you try…the more eyes eyes want to close…

…I would like you to now allow your eyes to close…

…You may feel a gentle wave of relaxation flow through your body and mind as you relax deeper and deeper with your eyes closed…

…And I would like you to know that it does not matter if your mind becomes so deeply relaxed that my voice drifts away…your unconscious mind will still absorb all the suggestions that I am about to give you…as my voice will travel with you wherever your mind wanders…  

…I would like you to simply observe the colourful oily blackness of your mind…as you drift down to the centre of your being…your subconscious mind rising…as your consciousness descends…

…And you can observe your subconscious and conscious minds rising and falling…like the waves in the ocean…by watching the oily colourful blackness move and swirl…as you become even deeper relaxed into the center of your being…   

…And I would like you to know that your unconscious mind is now ready to accept all the suggestions that I am about to give it...as it is so deeply relaxed and receptive to all suggestions that are of a positive benefit to you...
