Do You Know the Eight Word Induction? You Should!

Special Announcement about NLP

Yes, you can induce deep hypnosis in 4 seconds using just 8 words!

Cal doing HypnosisNow “back to the show” as they say… When this video is over go to and I have more information here for you including step by step images on just how to do this induction.

In this video I reveal the complete and accurate wording for the 8 Word Induction, AND I tell you how and why I developed it. I also give you a much longer version that was being taught by others, but was just not practical to teach in class because even though it instantly took someone into deep hypnosis, it was way too “wordy” which made it difficult to memorize and use.

    Thank you Cal and Brenda for another great episode! I too love the 8 word induction and use it all the time. I want to get my clients into hypnosis as efficiently as possible, and using this induction means I have more time to get to the real work in each session ;-). I also love how Cal says the shorter the induction the more reliable – there’s less that can go wrong. Thanks for sharing this 1%er technique with the world!

  2. Brenda Titus April 24, 2015 at 2:49 PM

    I really love using the 8 word induction with my clients. We are quickly where we need to be so that we can do the serious work in our sessions. Thank You for sharing this history about the technique and sharing more about how to use it Cal!!

    Cal & Brenda,
    Thanks for sharing! For anyone watching, take advantage of the special on the rapid induction DVD! The 8 word induction is elegant and efficient…so easy to memorize! But the DVD will teach you the nuances of the technique that really make it effective! Watch it…really learn it….and practice!

    Thank you all! I used the 8 Word Induction several times this last week. I also like to use my Eye-lock Instant Induction and my Blastoff Instant Induction. Doing inductions faster is better for your clients because then you have more time to do the work of hypnotherapy.

    Let’s do GREAT things together,

    I agree with the elegance of the 8 word induction & Karen’s advice to get the DVD and really learn the nuances. If you want to be among the best of the best in this profession, get it and learn it now!

    Thanks for all you do Cal & Brenda.
