Learn How to Hypnotize Someone in Five Seconds

Updated on July 7, 2018

I've wrestled about writing this article. I didn't feel right giving out this information to the public, but when I saw videos on other sites that tell people how to do this simple, yet very powerful suggestive hypnotic method, I decided to teach the public how to place a subject into trance by hypnotic induction. Please share this tool in a safe and responsible way.

This technique is used as part of stage hypnosis. I believe that if you are going to use hypnosis that it must be used with discretion. You are responsible for the hypnotized person's safety when you have them in a trance state.

We experience trance states every day of our lives. When you are day-dreaming, in deep thought, or even watching television, you are in a trance. When you are going to sleep at night, you are in a trance. Trance states are observed in science by brainwave activity. These waves change when a person's brain becomes relaxed. A trance can be light, or very deep like deep sleep.

Advertisers have used this knowledge forever. They get our focus and then they pull us in with keywords and authoritative speech that enter the subconscious mind, bypassing our mental filters. Even as you read this, your mind is focused on the words you are reading and you are not fully aware of the world around you. So trance is a very natural state of mind and doesn't feel weird or different from what you often feel every day.

Be Responsible!

Use discretion with these techniques. Only use them if you have been trained or are very familiar with hypnosis techniques!

How to Hypnotize Someone in Five Seconds

  1. Be observant. Look into the person's eyes and establish their trust.
  2. Make a statement like, "it is hot in here" followed by a reinforcing movement like fanning yourself. When speaking, sound confident and keep your voice monotone but authoritative.
  3. Ask the person to stand with their feet close together.
  4. Have them look in your eyes.
  5. Take their hand and give it a quick, downward jerk (don't use too much force).
  6. Command them to SLEEP!

More Steps to Make Hypnosis Work

You are at a party. Everyone is snacking on food and sipping drinks. You lean against a wall, arms folded, and inhale as you look at the crowd. You scan the room where people are talking while music is playing in the background. You are looking for just the right person that you feel will be the most suggestible. Once you have your prey, it's time to go to work, and this is how you do it.

  1. If you are in a group of people, be engaging. Look into peoples' eyes as they speak to you. Listen to the way they talk and what they are talking about. You can build a trust and rapport with the person this way, and you will see their personality. Follow cues in their facial expressions and body language to detect their emotional state and how they feel physically. Remember: It is said that 93 percent of all communication is nonverbal. By being observant you can build a trust-bridge with the person you want to put into a trance.
  2. Engage them and start giving subtle, suggestible commands. Make statements like, "It is getting late," followed by physical reinforcing movements like yawning. Watch how they react to your suggestion and look for ques in their body language and facial expressions. In a group of people, this can give you clues about on who is the most suggestible.
  3. Approach the person while they are in a group of friends. This way you know they have their guard down. Use your small talk social skills and chat with the group. Once you feel you have their trust and some rapport, go ahead and ask if they want to see a trick. Most of the time they will say yes.
  4. If the person does not immediately fall into a trance, keep using your suggestible commands to put them into a trance. Say things like, "That's good. Now keep feeling that way as you sleep."
  5. Use your hands to guide their gaze down as you speak. Use phrases like, "You wouldn't want that to happen NOW, would you?" The subconscious mind throws out negatives like (wouldn't) and only recognizes the key words like (you want, that to happen, now). Direct their gaze into your eyes to gain their focus.
  6. The person will immediately slump over and perhaps fall to you. It is important that you bring them close to you and guide them to your shoulder, turning their head to rest comfortably. It is important not to let them get hurt by falling on you. Now rub their back and say, "That's good, that's good. Now relax. Just feel yourself relax. You are fine." By reassuring them you give them a feeling it is all going to be okay. It is a very good idea to have a person help you seat them in a chair or lay them on a bed or sofa.
  7. Once the person is in the trance state, and is in a safe seated position, you can use the power of suggestion on your hypnotized subject. For example, you can tell them that when you count to three that they will open their eyes but that they will not remember their name. Then count to three and tell them to open their eyes. When their eyes are open, ask them to tell you their name. They will be amazed that they can't remember their own name.
  8. Awakening the subject is as easy as putting them back into trance with the sleep command. Look them in the eye and again, tell them to sleep, and place them back in the chair. Then tell them that you will count to five and that they will awaken feeling good and refreshed. Then count to five and say with a powerfully authoritative voice, AWAKE!

Arm-Pull Induction

Picking the Mark

When picking a person to place into trance, watch their body language. A person making good eye contact, that smiles when you smile or nods when you do, is a great mark. A person with their arms folded or watching intently is skeptical and is not a good candidate.

Rapid Induction Hypnosis Facts

  • A person while in a hypnotic trance will not do anything that they would not normally do when awake.
  • Rapid induction hypnosis has a lot to do with being in a social situation. When we are in a group of four or more, we let our guards down and are highly suggestible.
  • Rapid induction is used most commonly in stage hypnosis.

Quick Hypnosis for Friends

  1. Stand or sit face-to-face. Look into the eyes of the person. Have the person place their hand on top of yours palm to palm. Tell your subject to continue to look into your eyes until you tell them to stop. Pause and tell the subject that you will count to three and that on three they need to press down on your hand and that you will press up against theirs. Explain that what they feel is your energy. Then command them to listen to your instructions.
  2. As you count to three and the person pushes down on your hand, keep the resistance at a low level at first and then begin to press slowly harder up against their hand. Tell them to press harder. As you feel the pressure of them pressing down, raise your other hand and place it over their eyes in a downward motion caressing their brow slowly down.
  3. Now say, "As you press down on my hand, you will begin to feel as though your eyelids are getting heavier and heavier. You feel yourself sitting in your living room late at night watching an old black and white movie on the television. You feel your eyes drooping as you struggle to stay awake." (Mentally count to three.) "Now close your eyes." (Mentally count to three.) "SLEEP!" Quickly swipe away your hand from them so they jerk forward in a falling motion. Remember to guide them to your shoulder, placing their head outward into the crook of your arm. Get some help and then put them in a chair seated upright comfortably. At this point, the person is in a trance and is highly suggestible.
  4. Remember this is real and not a trick. If you choose to use these powerful tools of suggestion you can help people in pain. If they are depressed or stressed, you can make them feel more at ease. You can help someone relax before a public speaking event. It can be therapeutic and help in defeating addictions and bad habits when used with other tools. This is how hypnosis meant to be used.
  5. Hypnosis can be used in social situations as long as the person doing the hypnotic induction has the proper training. Don't trust any stranger you meet! Remember: Use these techniques responsibly and only after you have been trained in hypnosis.

You may find more answers and information by looking for my comments below. Most of you questions can be answered by reading the article.

I do not give you any commands that one would give a person under trance. It is up to your discretion on what you want to command the person to do. Just remember that if it is something you wouldn't do, they won't either. But we all have a wild side so see what you can do.


I am not a trained hypnotist nor am I a licensed practitioner of this practice.

All the information I have given you here is available to any seeking to learn how to do this technique. In most cases you already do and probably don't even know it.

      On most people it does work. Some though are tougher to place into trance then others. It is not a parlor trick... although it can be used as one in the right setting.

      Look into the person's eyes you are placing into trance. Maintain your gaze into their eyes as you lower your face downward always keeping eye contact. Then place your palm on theirs telling them to push down on your upward facing palm. As they do withdraw your hand quickly away and order them to "SLEEP". As they fall into trance it is up to you to reassure them they are okay and to then place them into a seated position.

      X Files,

      In the way that bypassing mental filters is all in how you take in the information presented. Let down the guards of your inhibitions and take the journey and see where it leads. Be sure of yourself and practice if you want to be adept.

      Tony,

      If the subject is still in trance then simply order them to be awake and aware of their surroundings. If the subject seems to stay in trance simply lead them to a bed or chair and order them to fall into a deep and restful sleep upon which when they rise they will feel great and rested ready to begin a new.

      Rando,

      You can use this technique but it is not a guarantee that it will work unless the person is suggestible. This is why in the article I teach you how to find a suggestible person in a group... (More Steps to Make Hypnosis Work).

      Star,

      It is fine if they fall asleep while hypnotized. Hypnosis is a natural part of our lives. We experience it when we are concentrating or tuning out. Sleep and hypnosis are like brother and sister.

      The technique works if you're doing it properly. one of the instructions I give in the article is to be confident when you're doing the technique.

      All I can do is tell you to keep trying. Once you've mastered the technique you will have success. remember to remain confident and calm in front of your subject do not laugh.

      I've been "hypnotized" and it's fake - but there's something interesting about it too. Even though i "played along" with the hypnotist in order to put on a good show, I strangely remember feeling no embarrassment, and really calm (if you knew me at 16 I was a really shy person and would never act like a moron intentionally in front of my entire school - but I did). Let me explain.

      In 10th grade my school brought a celebrity hypnotist for an event. My friend signed me up without knowing and we were called up in front of the entire school. First he has us do an experiment with our hands and how we wouldn't be able to open them - then he choose 7 people and we got to be "hypnotized" for the rest of the event (15 mins or so). I got "picked on" the most for the stuff (forgetting my name, forgetting the number 6) were the one's i did alone. Others were (playing a violin, using your shoe as a phone). I remember actively playing along in order to put on a good show - and he choose us because we were willing to play along.

      The weird thing is I was a really shy kid, and would never act like a moron or do embarrassing stuff (like he has us do) in front of my whole school - WILLINGLY! But I DID! I remember feeling really calm, and confident and WANTED to put on a fun show for the school. It felt like the audience was cloudy and obscured by a fog and I just felt so calm and zen like in a trance - but totally aware and intentionally playing along. The last thing he has us do at the end of the event was ask for a signature from anyone we met, believing they were a celebrity (we were instructed to have them sign our hands). I remember people's expressions, they thought we were insane, but i felt empowered by being able to convince others that I was hypnotized - like they were being laughed at not me.

      Overall, everyone who played understood we were like "actors" and wanted to play along for the fun of it; but also we all were surprised by how calm and confident we were (most of my fiends believed it was true because my actions we so out of character for me). So while i can say hypnosis is FAKE it did make me feel amazingly calm, and confident!

      Mr. Jankowski,

      My young son recently experienced the loss of a close relative close to him in age. He now has a severe phobia about dying. He's not eating well, he's also showing signs of depression and anxiety. Could I make things worse by trying hypnosis? He's only seven so I don't think it would be hard to try these techniques on him, but I want to make sure before attempting it that there's no way this could have a negative affect and make it worse. I tried to take him to talk to a physician but all she wanted to do was give him pills and that's not something I'm comfortable with without trying some other things first, like hypnosis for example. What are your thoughts, do you have any advise for me.

      Is it possible that you have an inborn talent where in you can hypnotize people without even knowing that you naturally do it. i've learned it from my grandfather when i was a kid. he told me that in order for me to be coup up with the people in our village you need to let them know (who you are). a surprise approach to them will always work on calming them towards you (i found out in my science class that is somehow related to natural regulation of the heartbeat of a person after being in the state of stress). then suddenly i adopted the talent and theres a thing that he wanted me to remember. he told me that " the secret in making people believe in you is your emotional state, heartbeat, rhythm of your body towards them , lately i befriended stranger girl thats so beautiful and i actually approached her, i held her hands to introduce myself and we have an eye contact cant explain the whole scenario but to make it simple i used the things that my grandfather told me i approached her and she was surprised as i grab her hand and the thing goes on the conversation we didnt remove the eye contact suddenly it happen,

      and she told me that she couldnt recall anything for the few minutes of our conversation and cant even remember my name but i just told her out loud, and she responded with her name so i think its imposible for her to forget mine cause she repeated my name after i told her. i just made a joke after our conversation i told her (you might forget everything i say earlier) and i gently let go of her hand, and that happened and got many related incidents to with my friends im from asia, i use it to fool my mother too when im in short of allowance (sorry for being bad) i rotate the conversation. and she forgets things, and it worked on my brother too. kinda scares me sorry bad english please respond

      Psychopath,

      Yes, it is a matter of translating the instructions using the context in a way that affects the person in that language.

      Jack,

      It will work if you follow the directions in the hub. As for on

      anyone... Well, the person has to be in a suggestible state. Use cues technique in the hub, that is how you will know.

      You don't want to go to a person and tell them... "I'm going to

      hypnotize you because I read this article online." or ask them if

      you can try to hypnotize them. You need to test the suggestibility

      of the person you want to hypnotize.

      Jason,

      Victim? I don't like that. Why are you calling the person a victim? I call them the mark... meaning the person in the group I know will be the most easily influenced by my cues. If you are trying to use hypnosis to victimize people you are in the wrong place. You should do some deep research into what you are trying to do.

      Excellent article! Unfortunately, there are many devious people who know how to do this and trap people in their power. Information like yours will help to lessen these deplorable incidents! Thank you.

      Dear Kaitlin Ray... so trance state does not mean you can't wake up. You are in a light sleep like suggestible state. So telling the person they are fully awake and aware will make them wake up out of their trance. A key word reinforced by some physical reinforcement like a pat on the shoulder or a motion with the hand can redirect the person back into a light trance like state. The key is you have to be open to suggestion. If they can't wake up... they may have fallen into actual sleep and when they wake up may think the session was just a dream. We are still learning about how these states work in the brain. I suggest making sure the environment you are doing this in is a mentally positive place and safe from any physically harmful situations.

      I have a question when you do the hypnosis how do you wake the person up if they can't wake up.? Also, after the person wakes up will they remember what happened or will their memory be gone or what's up with their memory?

      My husband suffers from opiod addiction for 10 years now on and off. He's also a marine Corp war veteran and suffers from terrible PTSD. It makes me so sad to see him this way that I've ended up here.. He is a very susceptible guy towards me and I think hypnosis would be the way, if there's any, to help him. I've never done it before but I would like to learn... Is it possible for me to achieve this through a few videos? Or am I going in way over my head? I would try anything if there was a chance it would work. I love him dearly and it kills me to see him this way. We've tried getting him help through programs both in patient and out patient and it doesn't work. I've read that hypnosis is very affective when it comes to this. Thank you

      Jackie, If this is the route you wish to take then seek a professional hypnotist in your area, Do not attempt any subtle hypnosis on your husband. He has a severe case of shell shock and is using chemicals to keep him numb and detached from reality because of his mental/physical trauma. I suggest both mental DBT therapy and perhaps hypnosis for his addictive behaviors and post-combat PTSD counciling, along with drug treatment. This is a serious issue and can effect you and those who care about your wellbeing. Do not waste your time on quick fixes. He needs mental, physical, and spiritual healing. Those scars we can't see are often the deepest of wounds. Be strong and take care of yourself, be there for support and if he is ready to be healed, walk him to the door, but it will be his choice to do it and if he does he will look back on how you were there to see him to the rest of his life. It will be a long road to a balance. Let love do its thing. I wish I had a better answer for you. I am being as honest as I can be, Good luck and I hope he gets well soon.
