Suggestions are at the heart of hypnosis.
There is one kind of suggestions known as “Permissive Suggestions”.
The following are some examples of such:
> When you are ready, take a deep breath.
> As you close your eyes and listen to my voice, allow yourself to become relaxed.
> If you hear my voice, lift your index finger.
> If your eyes are tired, you may close your eyes.
Permissive suggestions are adopted with the thought of not wanting to sound commanding, demanding or giving instructions to the hypnotized person.
