Defining Hypnosis

A focused goal directed, state of consciousness where the subconscious becomes more dominant, and that is often induced by another person.

Defining Erotic Hypnosis

I’d define hypnosis, (and erotic hypnosis), as focused goal directed, altered state of consciousness that is usually induced by another person, and this state allows us greater access to communicate with the subconscious. The hypnotic state can enhance sexual experiences by removing inhibitions, amplifying the senses, and intensifying sexual responses. We can create realistic fantasy experiences from exploration with erotic hypnosis and this often comes paired with a power exchange relationship or experience, but it does not have to. What is erotic to one person may be a turn off to another, so feedback and consistent communication is needed to achieve unrestrained goal directed pleasure simple tactile sensations or elaborate role-play scenes like Master/slave, pet play, becoming someone else, and much more. Many people use hypnosis to amplify feelings of sexual arousal, submission, and to develop increased sexual responsiveness to training cues. The nature of exploration with erotic hypnosis often comes paired with a power exchange relationship or experience, but it does not have to. What is erotic to one person may be a turn off to another, so feedback and consistent communication is needed to achieve unrestrained goal directed pleasure.

My style of practice is Relational Hypnosis

Relational hypnosis takes the cultural hypnosis we all bring into every interaction and begins to shape fresh experiences from it. Using a relational perspective allows us to contrast who we are at any given moment and ask ourselves if it is who we want to be. Relational hypnosis works so well, because so many of us have accepted guidelines of how we relate to each other, how to treat authority figures, how to behave with lovers, and there are not always clear expectations on emotions, and actions that are permissible by society or in specific cultural contexts. Why not include epic stories as part of these experience and explore these contexts. Try on and try out these roles and identities desired. Stories in themselves can bring us into light trances. Combining stories with trances allows us to fully embody what it means to be living differently. Relational hypnosis is not limited to formal hypnosis formats because energy, awareness, communication, and connection are not limited by them. Energy, awareness, communication, and connection are the foundational vehicles of relational hypnosis.

Pleasure is Trainable - Exercise One

Notice the sensation of air on the back of your hands right now. Can you find something very wonderfully pleasant about that? One of those hands feels better than the other. Notice something really pleasant and wonderful about that too. And when you do, you just might smile. It's simple, and I want you to hold onto that feeling. Enjoyment is a trainable sensation and enjoyment and concentration have a direct relationship. The more we enjoy a sensation, the more concentrated we can become, which in turn increases the enjoyment even further.

How did you do with this exercise?

Association Gaps of Experience Exercise Two

Move through this exercise and engage with the experience to understand what it offers you. Consider each question and fully answer it before moving on. Think of this experience as a free association or listening to your intuition as you go about your day. The only difference is here you can look back to see what has been omitted and what your subconscious has filled this experience in with. Be prepared to write down what comes to mind so those descriptions don’t escape you after the exercise. Let’s begin.

You start out on a path. What does it look like?

Shifting forward just a bit. What are the details that grab you in your surroundings?

What time of day is it? How does the air smell?

You’re outside. Ask yourself who is walking with you?

What are the details that you become aware of from your walking partner?

When thinking about the details, select one at a time and write down what impressions stay with you.

Walking forward together, something gets your attention. Describe what's happening.

As we walk together you come upon an animal. Describe what is happening with the animal you see. How does it make you feel?

Describe what is happening as we move past the animal.

Behind us there is an odd noise. What is your attention drawn to?

Up ahead there is wide open spaces. You see clues that people may be nearby. Describe what you see. What may these clues reveal?

Something ahead of you catches your eye. You're drawn forward. What is going through your mind as you come closer?

How does your body feel as you move along the path?

Something happens that makes you smile. What you discover tells you that you're about to take part in something meaningful, and this isn’t the first time you’ve thought about this. Describe what you found and what it means to you.

Embedded Commands

Embedded commands are also referred to as tonal and analogue marking, because in delivering them you’ll have to shift your voice lower or higher in tone on the command message. Tonal shifts are often delivered slower, and louder than anything else communicated in a sentence that contains them. The selected tonal marking a person uses to “embedded a command” in the sentences spoken can’t be used in any other way. So, you would not use the same vocal inflection you’d use to ask a question for example. The command must be distinct and separate from any other variation of vocal emphasis so that it is subconsciously accepted. In the English language, a rising tone at the end of a sentence is understood as a question. For this reason, many people go lower with their tone when delivering a command. Make sure you deliver the command within the sentence as a command. A statement has no inflection at the end, and your command should be delivered with congruity. When you say “comfort” the word should be spoken conveying the emotion of being in comfort with a second or two of pause after speaking it.

I’m bolding the tonal shifts here to make them more visible for you, as you set out to achieve your exercise goal of getting a listener to close their eyes.

“I wonder, if you'll be able to close your eyes”.

“Those who get the best results with hypnosis usually close their eyes, within a few moments of sitting down together.”

“Sometimes, its enjoyable to just close your eyes for a little while.”

“It will be interesting to notice when your eyes will decide to shut.

“You may decide to allow yourself to close your eyes.”

“You might give yourself permission to figure out, how to best, enjoy closing your eyes now.”

“I don't know if your eyes will close now, or in 30 seconds, or in two minutes.”

“I wonder, if you know that when you close your eyes, you'll have a more centered experience.”

“When the time is right, you'll probably want to close your eyes.

Consent Philosophies

“Curiosity is the longing of the mind compelling you to reach beyond the known.” Joseph Crown

As you engage others with hypnosis, and related kink activities, you should be aware of the chief philosophies around consent represented in the lifestyle communities. The mantra of being Safe, Sane, and Consensual (SSC) has caught on with those who want to communicate a standard expectation of behavior and personal responsibility within the lifestyle communities. In order to be safe, you must know the risks of the activities you wish to undertake. You must be reasonably certain that what you are doing together isn’t causing permanent or lasting harm to the emotional, mental, or physical health of anyone involved in the experience. There is an expectation of personal responsibility and self-directed learning that goes along with these philosophies. Being sane is generally considered to be displaying a “healthy” mindset, whereas behaving responsibly, and exercising good situational judgement are completely dependent on personal factors. Being consensual refers to all individuals involved in an activity having given their informed consent to participate in it. SSC is the consent philosophy that most people come across as they enter into this lifestyle.

Risk Aware Consensual Kink (RACK) is a consent philosophy that acknowledges that every activity has a degree of danger to it and "safe" is best determined by the individual(s). What one person considers safe, another may not. To be risk aware is to understand that the activity or activities you are engaging in carries a degree of danger, has a potential for unexpected harm, and a recognition that some of those elements maybe out of your control. What we must do is plan and prepare. Some Kinksters draw comparisons between engaging in kink activities with mountain climbing or skydiving, but even riding a bicycle through city streets could be used as an example here. Heck, I live in New Orleans and could use the experience of walking down the street on a familiar road. A lot can happen that deviates from our best laid plans even if we plan a quiet and lazy day, and RACK informs us that there is only so much we control no matter how good we are. Yes, this philosophy acknowledges there is an awareness of possible good and bad outcomes, but even if we’re using sound judgement, no one can promise anyone else that they will always be absolutely safe.
