This technique is the Gil Boyne version of the “hands closing together.” Although you can do this with the subject lying on their back with their arms extended upward toward the ceiling, or standing in front of them and having them extend their arms toward you, the best position is to have your subject seated in a chair. Stand in front of them, about six feet in distance, extend both of your arms out toward them. With the palms of your hands facing each other, your fingers held together, and your thumbs pointing upward, speak to them in this manner:
Spoken to the subject
Extend both of your arms out in front of you like this. Stiffen your arms, lock your elbows; palms of your hands facing each other. Your thumbs up, your fingers held together. Now in a moment, I am going to bring my fingers in between your two hands. Until I do, I want you to look right here into my eyes. (Move index finger to right eye) Keep looking at me. Just as soon as I bring my index finger in between your two hands, take your eyes from mine and fix them on my fingertips. Then I will move my finger; when I do, do not move your eyes. Keep looking straight ahead between your hands. (Move hand with extended index finger to between their hands) All right, now bring your eyes down here to my fingertips. Now I am going to move my finger, and when I do, do not move your eyes. Keep looking straight ahead between your hands. Then as I count from three down to one close your eyelids down. Now, the very moment that your eyelids close down (grasp their hands and slowly push them together), your two hands begin drawing together. Just imagine there is a magnet on the palm of each hand which is drawing them in closer, closer, closing and moving in until your two hands touch. (separate their hands) All right, when I count from three to one, close your eyelids down. (Position each of your hands under each of their hands with your index finger pointing outward)
(Begin sweeping your fingers in towards the center so that the last thing they see visually are your hands moving in toward each other) All right, three, two, one, close your eyelids down. Now they’re closing, closing, closing, closing, closing, closing, closing, closing and almost touching, closing and almost touching.
Picture the magnet in the palm of each hand. They are closing and moving in, closing and moving in. They are closing, closing, closing, closing, closing and moving, moving in and closing, closing, closing and moving in, moving in and closing, until your two hands touch. They’re closing and almost touching. Picture the magnets in the palm of each hand as they are closing, closing and moving in.
(If the hands get very close but do not touch, simply take your hands and push their hands together and say ‘Sleep now’) The moment your two hands touch, a wave of relaxation will move all across your body. The moment you feel your two hands touch, every muscle and every nerve in your body will completely relax. All right, now they are closing, closing almost touching, closing, closing, closing and almost touching, closing and almost touching, closing and almost touching, now they are touching. Let your head come forward on your chest; let your arms drop limply into your lap; let every muscle and every nerve now grow loose and limp and relaxed and feel good all over now.
Pull their hands down into their lap and say, “Let your head come forward on your chest and continue going easily, pleasantly, fully into a wonderfully pleasant state of hypnotic relaxation.”
The following are several suggestions you may choose to use during this process should you see resistance on the part of the subject: “Just as a magnet get stronger, the closer your hands get, the stronger the pull” or “In a moment, I’m going to tap you on the forehead, the moment I do, the magnets become 10 time stronger, pulling you hands together” (Tap subject on the forehead)
(Use a deepening technique and test subject)
