The PII Induction, or the Pattern-Interrupt Interrupt, is a unique induction perfect for use with those who would be expecting a pattern-interrupt.
We first devised this induction for use in training situations, when it is almost impossible to deliver a pattern interrupt, whilst teaching about pattern interrupts! The solution was rather obvious – simply interrupt in a different way.
Here is a transcript of a time when we were teaching the Bandler Handshake, but interrupted to morph into a far less dramatic ambiguous touch.
So, just to re-cap, we will go into a handshake like this…[Hypnotist offers their hand, to which the participant responds by putting their own hand forward.]
And just as our hands are about to touch, my other hand comes forward, grabs their wrist and moves the hand up here…[The hypnotist performs the first stage of a typical floating hand Bandler handshake.]
Got it?[Participant nods.]
So, just so everyone can see, we will go into a handshake like this…[Hypnotist offers their hand, to which the participant still automatically responds by putting their own hand forward.]
Then, just as our hands are about to touch, my other hand comes forward and takes their wrist and moves the hand up here…[Hypnotist lets their hand go, steps back and steps forward again…]
So, one last time, because I want to make absolutely sure we’ve all got this, we will go to shake hands…[This time the hypnotist does not remove their hand, but meets their participant’s hand and shakes it. The speed of the shake slows down as the hypnotist says:]
And you know exactly how quickly you can access that deeper resourceful state, as you go down inside you…[The handshake has slowed down such that it has now almost stopped.]
And you don’t need to close your eyes until you are ready to fully enter that state…[Participant’s eyes close.]
And discover all of those learnings that have been waiting for you deep…[Hypnotist lets go of participant’s hand, which remains cataleptic…]
…deep inside you.
That’s right… Go all the way down… Calm, comfortable, safe and serene… that natural place where your subconscious mind has already begun to learn those lessons and make all of those connections to where you need to go.
And only as quickly as your subconscious and conscious mind can agree together to work for your good… will that hand begin to drift down now, taking you deeper… that’s it… all the way…
