Here you’ll find all the hypnosis scripts I’ve put together for this site. To use a script, simply have your hypnosis subject make themselves comfortable, then follow the instructions and read them the script.
Most of the hypnosis scripts here contain a combined induction and deepener, along with a positive suggestion and an awakener. Some, such as those designed to induce sleep or lucid dreams, do not.
Do this before you read the hypnosis script
Before you begin any hypnosis session, it’s important to set up the environment in such a way that you’re unlikely to be interrupted and to minimize the risk of things going wrong.
This is true even when you’re reading a hypnosis script to your subject.
Give a hypnotic pre-talk
Start off with a simple pre-talk in which you ask your subject about their perceptions around hypnosis. Ask them if they’ve had an experience of hypnosis before. If they have, ask them what happened and what it was like.
When they’ve had a positive experience of hypnosis, it’s very helpful to ask them a few questions about it. Doing so brings part of the experience back into their mind, which makes it much easier to hypnotize them again.

Hypnotize yourself first
Finally, hypnosis tends to work a lot better when the hypnotist delivers the session from a place of hypnosis. When we do this, it becomes easy for the subject to follow along.
The result? They go deeper into hypnosis more quickly.
Inside my article on How to Hypnotize Yourself Instantly, you’ll find instructions on how to hypnotize yourself, along with an easy way to get yourself back into hypnosis in future for use when you’re hypnotizing others.
Everything that you do before you start reading the hypnosis script should be designed to ensure that your hypnosis subject is comfortable and unlikely to be interrupted, and should minimize the risk of things going wrong.
Once everything is in place, choose a hypnosis script to read and follow the instructions.
The very first thing to do with any hypnosis script is to read the instructions and follow them.

Probably the simplest hypnotic induction script of all time is the Progressive Relaxation Hypnotic Induction Script. This ties in with most people’s views on how hypnosis works, and also conveniently helps them to become very relaxed.
Guided Imagery Visualization Hypnotic Induction Scripts
A lot of the best hypnosis sessions involve taking your subject on some kind of journey. Describe a scene in detail, along with how they interact with it. Then give them a suggestion, or simply leave them to explore.
These can also be used as a gateway to meditation by simply suggesting that they can find somewhere comfortable to meditate for a while once you get to the suggestion part.
Sometimes it can be fun to turn your hypnosis subject into something else altogether for a time. And because perception runs inside your subject’s brain, it’s generally possible to guide someone into having an experience of being anything at all.
Whether it’s a different kind of creature like a kitten, an inanimate object like a rock, or even a new version of themselves, these hypno-transformation scripts have been designed to allow your subjects to experience being something entirely different for a time.
Naturally each form has different purposes. Other creatures tend to be more for fun, whereas becoming a rock or a tree can be deeply meditative.
It is my hope that you and your subjects have enjoyed these scripts.
Now you may just be here looking for a few scripts for a one-off experience, and if that’s you, great! And you also might be looking to go further.
The truth is that the very best hypnosis comes when we have live feedback from our hypnosis subjects while they’re hypnotized.
