How to Hypnotize Anyone?

To hypnotize anyone they have to be receptive to the idea – you know – the power of suggestion and all that. You normally have the person lying down, staring at a focal item (swinging pendant, etc.) while soft, harmonious suggestions are repeated over and over. For example: ‘You’re eyelids are getting heavier and heavier.’ This routine is to put the person in an extremely relaxed state and very vulnerable and open to suggestions.
