Author: O. McGill - Instantaneous Hypnosis Techniques operate most effectively when the subject and/or subjects are in a suggestive state of mind, as is often the case when participating in hypnotic demonstrations. In other words, when the subject is more-or-less "keyed up" and expects to be hypnotized.
Rapid methods of hypnotizing would probably be more accurate than instantaneous in describing these methods, however the mind can work with such cmputer-like swiftness that appear almost instantaneous. To hypnotists most familiar with progressive-relaxation procedures, analytical techniques, etc., these rapid methods of inducing hypnosis in seconds can come as a surprise. And to the unfamiliar, they appear almost as miraculous. Try them! They work!
