What Does Deeper Mean, In Hypnosis?, by Rosemary Barrett

A definition of “going deeper” is “to focus more enjoyably”.

“Deeper” has to do with “becoming more enjoyably focused”.

A “deepener” is not the whole of the hypnosis process, it is just a part of the hypnosis process.

A deepener further reduces the client’s awareness of what is around them, to the point where their awareness has become so narrowed, that all they are capable of doing, is focusing only on the sound of the hypnotist’s voice and on what the hypnotist is saying to them.

By turning focus into enjoyment it becomes easier for the client to be able to focus even more.

I say, “The deeper you go, the better you feel, and the better you feel, the deeper you go”.

Once the hypnotist has linked enjoyment to focusing, the client will find enjoyment in focusing, and they start feeling even more enjoyably focused, feeling even better, and so they start to focus even more.

They find enjoyment in focusing, because the deepener makes it enjoyable to focus, and they become even more enjoyably focused, and they go even deeper, and they feel even better, and then all they want to do, is focus even more.

Because they are finding enjoyment in focusing, they start feeling better, and they then become even more enjoyably focused, and they automatically go even deeper, and they feel even better.  The client is then becoming even more enjoyably focused, they are just going even deeper, and they are feeling even better.  It’s so much easier for them to go deeper, because it’s more enjoyable, and it just follows naturally.

Because they are still finding enjoyment in focusing, they are focusing even more enjoyably, and they are becoming even more enjoyably focused, and they are going even deeper, and they are feeling even better still.  And because they are becoming even more enjoyably focused, and going even deeper, and feeling even better, this makes it so much more enjoyable for them to focus.  And they will want to focus even more.

And so …

As they go deeper and deeper, they will feel better and better, and as they continue to go deeper and even deeper, they will feel better and even better.  They will want to continue to focus even more enjoyably, they will want to become even more enjoyably focused, and they will want to continue going deeper and deeper and even deeper, because then they know that they will continue to feel better and even better as they go deeper and deeper and even deeper.  They keep focusing even more enjoyably, and they keep becoming even more enjoyably focused, and they then automatically continue to go deeper … and deeper … and even deeper …, and they feel better … and better … and even better.

And because they are thoroughly enjoying this absolutely amazing, and absolutely incredible, and absolutely wonderful feeling, they continue to focus even more enjoyably, they feel even better, they become even more enjoyably focused, they continue to go even deeper, and they continue to feel even better.

And all the while, throughout the deepener, they are simply going deeper … and deeper … and deeper still … without … even … noticing … .

Once the hypnotist has gone through all of the deepeners, he can then lead the client naturally into the change work for issues such as Anxiety and Stress, Quit Smoking, Fears and Phobias, Insomnia, Confidence, and Weight Loss.  “Change Work” is known as “The Golden Box”.

DEEPENERS

There are two kinds of deepeners.  These are the simple deepeners, and the complex deepeners.  I will describe a couple of examples of both types of deepeners, and the process behind them.

EXAMPLES OF SIMPLE DEEPENERS

A simple deepener is the most straightforward, because it is simple, fast and direct.  It is a very quick and easy way to deepen the client’s state of hypnosis.

The “Go Deeper And Deeper ” Deepener

The “Go Deeper And Deeper” Deepener is a very basic simple deepener, and it is usually the first one to use.

The hypnotist says:- “Go deeper and deeper.  Focus even more enjoyably.  That’s what deeper means.  So the deeper you go, the better you feel, and the better you feel, the deeper you go”.

In this deepener, the hypnotist is describing to the client that “deeper” means “focus more enjoyably”, to make sure that they know what the word actually means.  They will begin linking the word “deeper” with experiencing a very good and enjoyable feeling.

The “Three To Zero” Deepener

The “Three To Zero” Deepener is usually the second simple deepener to use.  This deepener further links the word “deeper” with a very good and enjoyable feeling.  It basically consists of counting from three down to zero.

In the “three to zero” deepener, the hypnotist tells the client what is going to happen, and how they’re going to respond to it.

The hypnotist says:- “In a moment I’m going to count from three down to zero, and you go ten times deeper with every count”.

The “Snap” Deepener

The hypnotist says:- “In a moment I will snap my fingers, and you will go ten times deeper, and every time I snap my fingers you will go ten times deeper with every snap”.

The “Knock” Deepener

The hypnotist says:- “In a moment I will knock on the desk, and you will go ten times deeper, and every time I knock on the desk you will go ten times deeper with every knock”.

The “Tap” Deepener

The hypnotist says:- “In a moment I will tap you on the knee, and you will go ten times deeper, and every time I tap you on the knee you will go ten times deeper with every tap”.

The “Hand Lift” Deepener

The hypnotist says:- “In a moment I’m going to lift your hand, and when I let it go you’re going to go ten times deeper”.

EXAMPLES OF COMPLEX DEEPENERS

A complex deepener is more detailed and descriptive and requires slightly more instructions.  It deepens the client’s state of hypnosis even further.

The hypnotist says:- “This is what I’m going to do.  This is how you’re going to respond”.

The “Auto-Deepener”

This deepener is very useful for when the hypnotist wants the client to deepen himself.  Once it gets going, the hypnotist can use it for quite a while, and he can take them very, very deep.

The hypnotist says:-

“And as wonderful as you feel right now …

There is always a level that’s deeper …

Where you feel even better …

So right now …

Go to that deeper level …

Where you’re even more focused …

Feeling even better …

And when you’re there …

Nod your head …

And now go even further …

Focusing even more enjoyably …

Finding that deeper level …

And when you’re there …

Feeling even better …

Again …

Nod your head …

Good …

And now begin to just keep going deeper …

Finding a deeper level …

Feeling even better …

Nodding your head …

Again … and again … and again …

Until I tell you to stop …

So keep going even deeper …

Feeling even better …

Nodding your head …

And deeper still …

Very … very … good …

Just keep going deeper …

Because the deeper you go …

The better you feel …

And the better you feel …

The deeper you go …

So just keep going deeper and deeper …

Feeling better and better …

Just like that …

And now you can stop …

Nodding your head …

And if you like …

Go even deeper …”.

The “Passing Through The Zero” Deepener

During this deepener, the hypnotist draws the client’s attention to the wonderful and intense pleasure that they will unfailingly experience once they pass through the zero.  The heightened anticipation and excitement that the client feels about experiencing this intensely wonderful pleasure makes them completely and totally unaware of absolutely everything else.

The hypnotist says:-

“And now …

In a moment …

Not now …

But in a moment …

I’m going to count from five down to zero …

And there is …

Way out there in the distance …

A great big, beautiful, round zero …

Now focus on that zero …

Focus totally on that zero …

In fact …

Focus all of your attention on the very centre of that zero …

Because when I begin counting …

You will begin moving towards that zero …

And when I reach the zero …

You will reach the zero …

And you will pass right through the very centre of the zero …

And you will enter the most beautiful …

the most wonderfully pleasant …

and the most profoundly absorbing …

experience of hypnosis that you could ever imagine …

You really want to go through the very centre of that zero …

So focus on it now …

Focus totally on that zero …

FIVE … You’re moving towards the zero now …

You want to get to it …

and through it …

as quickly as possible …

FOUR … You’re getting closer …

You now feel anticipation …

getting stronger and stronger …

as you get closer and closer to the zero …

THREE … Now you know that what is through there …

is even more amazing …

more enjoyable …

than you could ever have imagined …

TWO … You’re getting closer …

Now you can feel every part of you …

wanting to get through there …

Now you can feel every part of you …

screaming for you to get through there …

ONE … You’re almost there …

So close … so close …

ZERO … You’re there …

Pass Through It …

And just let it wash over you and through you …

like waves are passing through you …

And with every breath …

you feel a wave pass through you …

and you feel even better …

A wave is passing through you right now …

and anything you see now …

is so beautiful …

so amazing …

and you feel even better …

Another wave passes through you …

and any sound …

anything you hear …

is as beautiful as music …

and you feel even better …

Another wave passes through you …

and as it does …

every feeling … every emotion …

is now just pleasure and joy …

and you feel even better …

Now another wave passes through you …

and every taste and smell …

is so satisfying …

and you feel even better …

And as wonderful as you feel right now …

You know …

That every time I say the word deeper …

You will feel ten times better …

Than you did the moment before …

So now go deeper … and deeper …

Feeling better … and better …

And deeper still …

Feeling even better …

Because the deeper you go …

The better you feel …

And the better you feel …

The deeper you go …

So just keep going deeper and deeper …

Feeling better and better …

Just … like … that …”.
