Before beginning suggestions to induce hypnosis, after giving pre-hypnotic suggestions, have your patient relax every muscle, close his eyes lightly, and breathe through his mouth, as illustrated in the frontispiece. (See frontispiece.) Then speak about as follows: "All right, take this seat. Lean your head back against the chair. Close your eyes lightly and breathe through your mouth, and think of going to sleep. Now, as I apply this remedy you will soon become quiet all over, and get drowsy and sleepy, and go to sleep and awake feeling better.
"I will talk to you to help you to concentrate your mind. Now, as I apply this remedy you will get sleepy, sleepy, sleepy, so-o-o-o sleepy. Now, go to sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep. -
"Now, you feel quiet all over. Your muscles are relaxed. Everything is dark to you. You do not hear anything but my voice. You are drowsy and sleepy, so-o-o-o sleepy. You feel the sleep coming over you. You are going to sleep. Sleep, sleep, sleep.
"By the time I count ten you will be fast asleep. One, two, three, four, five, six. seven, eight, nine, ten, and you are asleep, fast asleep, sound asleep.
"By the time I count five more you will be sound and dead asleep, just as you are in the deed of night when sleeping soundly in your own bed. One, two, three, four, five, and you are asleep, fast asleep, sound asleep, dead asleep. Don't awake, now, until I tell you.
"Every second your sleep will become sounder and sounder, and deeper and deeper. Sleep on quietly until I awake you.
"Now, you will not feel anything, or hear anything, or know anything except what I tell you. Sleep on quietly until I awake you."
"Now, gentlemen, this subject is in a suggestible condition, which I will proceed to demonstrate. I raise his arm."
