In this episode we talk about Fri-yay, and review our hygiene efforts.
Today is Friday and this is Eunoia, Spoken by Elswyth. I had a bit of a pause there because I’ve fallen into the habit of jokingly referring to it as Fri-yay, and for whatever reason that has stuck, especially in my friend-circle, and so Fri-yay.. no whenever I say it outside of that I always have this pause of “Oh shit, which one did I say?”
Anyway… today is Friday and this is Eunoia, so let’s get started. I want to say thank you to Peter, who is my latest Patron. Welcome in to the Happy Harem, and I also… I managed to forget to say a welcome to Alex, and sorry for that. Patreon is kind-of peculiar. I think it’s because it doesn’t have a lot of competition, so… so it sometimes feels like it was designed a decade ago and then never touched again. Yeah, it’s a little bit erratic in some of the notifications… so welcome again, to you Alex.
And I had, I had a flurry of responses about handwashing and well done all of you.. including Cal Dude, and October-David, who is using his temporary nickname, so well done. Those two came through the Tell Me Good Things form, and they brought the average up to somewhere between 7-and-8. So eight “All good things come from Mistresses” each time you wash your hands, and go ahead and do more if you’ve been really dirty.
Oh, speaking of… the Tell Me Good Things form, it is on the Contact page of my website, and so it’s an easy place to throw short messages like “Hey, thanks for permission to cum!” and “Thanks for denial!”. Some of you, you could just do that the entire month, right? If you’re clever enough you could probably like, write a script to do it. The “Thanks for denial!”.
Of course you should also be sweet, with like… “Dear Mistress Elswyth. Thank you for denial. Warmly…” or “Yours…”, I do love Yours when it’s coming from my Happy Harem, and then your name, or nickname.
And I did promise a short Eunoia today so… maybe it’s already time to move on to Obey. So let’s do so.
Your homework is nice and easy, if you’ve been listening, but have never sent me any kind of a message… I want you to go to the Contact page, spokenbyelswyth.com/contact, and then just send a note. There are useful instructions on the page for how first notes should be, so they’re “polite”. You can send a hello, or you can ask a question, or suggest something, and you can be anonymous if you prefer.
And for today’s Permissive Circumstance, if you send me any kind of note today, through that form, well then you have my permission, and hey I’ll have fun knowing how many orgasms I personally endorsed today.
Of course, if you’re doing Locktober, just send me a note as well, thanking you for denial.
Okay, go on, enjoy your Fri-yay. Depending on editing my Happy Harem may find Saturday’s Session out today. I will link it through Patreon for you. For everybody else, Saturday’s Session is coming out tomorrow. Due to the content it is not making it to YouTube, so just go to the website to download it. And, I will see you then.
In this instalment I wrap up yesterday’s thoughts on Hypnotic Inductions, with some Homework and Permissive Circumstances to boot.
Today is Thursday and this is Eunoia, Spoken by Elswyth. Eunoia is all about the connection betweeen us outside of the hypnosis sessions. Send you notes through Patreon or the SpokenByElswyth website to be included in the Listen section, and continue on to Obey for the Homework and Permissive Circumstance.
Today is part two of talking about inductions and deepeners, not all of them used in our femdom hypnosis sessions, but… I’ve received interesting ideas on how to weave in more physical ones after asking about it yesterday in the homework. And thanks to those that did their homework and sent those messages in.
So another method is arm levitation. This is pretty classic, it’s an Eriksonian tecnique. Basically, you get comfy; imagine a nice lounge, let’s make it white. I really like white furniture. Nice white lounge, you’re all stretched out. Your arms to your sides, eyes closed, and I would ask you to feel the difference, feel the different feelings in your arms. And making suggestions… so let’s say your left arm feels heavy, your right arm feels light, or hot, or cold… you enter a trance and you could-might even physically lift your arm.
You’ve probably heard this one done with like a tie, a bunch of balloons around your right wrist and I put a heavy bucket of sand in your left hand. And that suggestion,. that visualisation, it will often have a physical side that happens to it. Seeing a client’s arms move.
The other one is eye fixation. And this one is, really… this is something you probably do a few times a day without realising it. You will find yourself kind of zoning out, missing other people talking ’cause you’re kind-of staring at something in the room. Uh, it’s pretty easy. But that is a trance-like state. And any object of focus, it can be used to induce a trance. The pendulum, the swinging pocket watch. Those, you usually think of stage hypnosis with them.
And there are certain schools that teach hypnotherapy that would probably lose their minds if any of their therapists started using a crystal pendulum, just because it has a bit of a stigma around it. But we don’t worry about stigmas, do we?
Two of the reasons that eye-fixation works is… well, one; the object, we’ll say the pendulum, it keeps a conscious mind occupied, and that opens the subconscious mind to suggestion. And, second… it’s a bit more mundane, basically your eyes get physically tired when they’re going back and forth, or they fixate, so… okay… do that now. We’ll pretend this isn’t listening and this is obey. Obey me.
I want you to look up at the ceiling, don’t bend your neck, just like… look up so your eyes are really tilted up. Keep going. Keep doing it until you actually feel your eyes get tired and begin to close. That’s one of the keys to eye fixation.
The other one I like, and by the way, you can quit looking up, the other one I like is the body scan. I love this because it’s a gift that you can give to yourself outside of hypnosis, and with starting a session this way I know that it’s giving you a good thing… and I do love to give you good things. It can also be like married in together with some other techniques, you know… the full body scan, checking for tension in your shoulders…
There’s something very loud going by outside!
Going down through your shoulders, you know, your lower back, your thighs, your hips, your knees and doing that scan. You know that I love to pair this together with pink glitter. Kudos to you who remembered where that one came from.
Okay… so, today’s shout-outs go out to uh… Ned, Ducky and Dave, uh, not October-Dave, for sending in the most… I’m trying to find my word here, for somebody who loves words, we’re going to say outlandish; outlandish homework replies to yesterday’s homework to yesterday’s homework. I don’t think we’ll be trying those, ummm… one involves heels, which I’m guessing was inspired by this skimpy outfit yesterday, but we’re not doing that with the heels.
So on Monday there will be another Locktober MCF, and on Saturday I have, well… let’s just call it a confidence builder session, being released. I swear I’m gonna put it in Personal Growth as well, over in that pillar. It was a lot of fun to create, and I think quite a few of your are going to enjoy that one. It’s a great confidence builder.
Okay, uh… the homework. Today’s homework is to repeat “All Good Things Come From Mistress” every time you wash your hands. You may do so in your head, or in, out to the room, it’s your choice, and tell me how many of those you need to repeat in order to wash your hands for the appropriate amount of time. And if you don’t know the appropriate amount of time for hand-washing, shame on you. It is 2021… you should know this!
Okay, Permissive Circumstance for today. This one for my truly out there folks, if you get a wild hair and want to show me this one, go for it. If you do, you probably don’t need this upcoming Saturday session at all, but that’s okay… you can still listen to it because I am generous and I care about you.
The Permissive Circumstance today is, you have my permission if, you imagine your forehead on the toe of my shoe, as you do so. Because I find it hard to believe that you won’t be doing this in private. I want you to go ahead and assume the appropriate position, on your knees, leaning forward, forehead on my toes. Well, opn my shoes, covering my toes. If you have a private garden, or yard, and you feel inclined to do this outside, because seasons are changing, and why shouldn’t you enjoy that? You can imagine me sat on the fence, or the stone wall, and again… your forehead on the toes of my shoes.
Okay, that’s it for today. I will see you again on Friday. Bye for now.
Today and tomorrow I’m sharing my thoughts and ideas of hypnotic inductions, and asking for a few ideas, too. Of course, you’ll find the usual instruction to “Obey” at the end of the episode.
Oops, it looks like the Mind Control Fragment Page has changed a little, especially if you’re mostly looking at the Locktober playlist. Get all the Locktober fragments right here, without having to pretend you’re patient.
Today is Wednesday and this is Eunoia, Spoken by Elswyth. Eunoia is all about the connection between us outside of our sessions. Send your notes through Patreon or the SpokenByElswyth website to be included in the Listen section and continue on to Obey for the fun homework, permissive circumstance, and whatever else I sometimes tuck in there.
So today and tomorrow, I’m doing two parts of a series just talking about hypnotic inductions. With Femdom hypnosis I still follow a somewhat traditional hypnotherapist layout of hypnotic sessions, even though the content is quite different. It is important that the body is relaxed and mind is open before we truly dig in.
Many of my Happy Harem have shared their favorites and least favorite induction methods with me. I have one dear that dies a little inside each time the beach is mentioned.. which is a shame, because I fucking love the beach. But because he did tell me that and quite early on, I am aware of it and I’ve also become hyper-aware of how often meditations and visualizations and all these things use the beach. Ummm… another dear, uh, well he practically like vibrates with happiness if I do a confusion induction, especially with numbers.
Now, sometimes there is no rhyme or reason to which induction and deepener I choose for a session, it’s just whatever I’m in the mood to try out, or say. Ummm, but most of the time I do have a plan, I have a general, like, outline, Uh, usually so I can hide those word runes in there, or pick an induction that I know someone particularly enjoys… especially if I’m doing a session based on a fetish I know they enjoy. That’s one of the perks to having the smaller, limited Patreon.
Okay, so, I mentioned the visualisation one. The beach, the comforting place, a stream, going down those stairs or hallway. Visualization can be used both to induce trance and to make suggestions. Like for example, if I tell you if you’ve done the lemon script, the quickie as it’s called, it has you recall a room that you’re very familiar with, in that case its the kitchen. Imagining every detail in the room; the floor, the shape of the windows, the painting on the wall, the smells coming from the stove, even the light coming in. You can take that and then have you move onto a room they you’re less familiar with.
So you’re struggling to recall exact details and this little mental struggle going on, its when you are actually pretty open to suggestion. And I like that. I like that tied in with he conversational confusion one, simply because it is easy, so even if you’re new to hypnosis, or Femdom hypnosis, etcetera, its easy. It’s easy to imagine a place and we’re social being so a lot of us love describing places to other people. If we are, if we went out to coffee and I’m like “Hey, tell me about your Grandma’s kitchen.” you’d probably enjoy telling me about it, right? It’s nice. And then if I said “Okay, now tell me about your school’s cafeteria.” that could be a little bit harder and that is where, in our conversation you’d be a bit more open, your mind would be.
Okay, so the confusion it purposefully has misdirection or word play woven through it. It can have the numbers and so on as well. For those of you who are long-time listeners of Spoken By Elswyth you know certain words and word games I love to do. I love words. I think one of my first gifts to come off my wishlist was from my dear Nicholas was a thesaurus. And I know, in this day and age even your phone has a thesaurus in it, but having the actual weighty book is quite nice. I almost always have books on my wishlist, because I love the words, I love playing with it, I know so many of you who are literate people who enjoy words as well and like that kind of play.
The last one I’ll discuss today, so we can save a few for tomorrow, is the sudden shock induction. This is the one people often bring to mind when thinking of Stage Hypnosis or those rowdy TV evangelists on at like one in the morning. You know the ones that they go around smacking people on their foreheads and knocking ‘em backwards. It’s usually a trust fall scenario, not someone actually crashing to the ground, but Erickson who was often fond of like the handshake technique being a trigger, he also claimed that stepping on a person’s foot and then following it with a suggestion worked brilliantly.
Now, I don’t think I can go around to everyone’s house and step on their foot, but maybe one of my clever ones can come up with a way they would like to experience this? I’m happy to co-create with you, so let me know.
So, a few shout-outs. A warm welcome to October-David. he said he needs a nickname due to other Davids being in the harem, so October-David it is for now. He is being bold and he already accepted the Collector’s Invitation.
And also welcome to S. Just S. It’s gorgeous in the simplicity. And welcome to NR84. The temptation is very high to play with renaming both of them, but let’s move on…
Thank you to Raymond for the Jay Jays… oh wait, let’s rephrase. Thank you to Raymond for the night clothes. I’m just gonna let y’all think it’s a skimpy, barely there, red lace number that perfectly matches my heels. You know, the heels that only get worn for the bedroom, or the dinner heels. You know, they just go from car, or taxi, to dinner… and then back to wherever. And then back to wherever, but you’re not walking around in those.
Oh, and on that note… talking about bedrooms and heels and sexy things. Locktober is popular, I know this because there’s been a rush. A rush to the chastity sessions. Like, imagine (and my apologies to those of you who are not American or have not seen this phenomenon on TV) imagine like Walmart, Black Friday, yeah that’s what we have going on towards the chastity section, and those sessions, so that’s fun.
Well done all of you eager beavers, you know? Sixth day of the month, lets see how it goes. November first might prove to be very interesting.
Okay, onto obey. First thing first, stretch your arms up high. Really high. Keep them there. Imagine me in front of you, about to tickle under your armpits. Did you move? Be honest? Did you move… okay… arms down.
Today, you have homework. Today’s homework is to think of ways to recreate the Sudden Impact Induction. Not just stage version but a way we could recreate the sudden impact induction.
And your permissive circumstance is this; you have my permission for release if you’ve ever messed around on a beach. Now it can’t be a simple peck on the check or even just a short makeout session. You gotta be honest here, right? And if you want to share the juicy details with me, go ahead.
Today is Tusday and this is Eunoia, Spoken by Elswyth. Eunoia is all about the connection between us outside of our playtime together. Send your notes through Patreon or the SpokenByElswyth website to be included in the Listen section and then continue on to Obey like a good boy.
Today is a somewhat shorter Eunoia because I’m getting out MCF’s out for today. More about that later… first of all, Bunnybee sent me a polite request for a MCF based on JOI. Lots of acronyms there, right? An MCF JOI that involves a stroker or… I like the word stroker better than Fleshlight, because now that I’m an American living in the UK, whenever I slip and say flashlight instead of torch, which I think torch is ridiculous, I know that there’s a certain group of people that automatically turn flashlight into Fleshlight.
But torch, seriously? Torch sounds like we’re getting, y’know the tar and feathers and we’re gonna go storm the mad scientist’s lab up on the hill, right? Torch is just… I don’t know. I can’t do it. Anyway… so… Bunnybee mentioned an MCF JOI that involves those particular types of toys and, I have recorded one that does involve that. But… it might not be what you were hoping for. It is part of the Locktober Mind Control Fragments.
So, I delayed a day or two on those because it was just easier to record all the bits and pieces in one fell swoop, but the first one should already be available and for those who are impatient and don’t want to wait for them to trickle, drip, out… you can find the entire set on the website, and the link is also in the podcast, YouTube, website description.
Ummm… you can always go to the blog post usually to find things. You know what, let’s quadruple the Patreon and just earn me enough money that somebody else can do the YouTube and the posting and whatevers, because I would always rather create and talk to all of you, than do that side of things.
Okay, so… yeah… so that’s coming out, and there’s no early peeks for my Happy Harem on this one, because I really love knowing which of you just couldn’t wait.
So, for Obey, it is going to be a little different today. No breathing, no meditation, simply because I am releasing an MCF today that is all about stress reduction through breathing, so your homework is to listen to that MCF release. Even if you’re not interested in the Locktober, per sé, you can still listen to that, there’s some positivity in there… and then, ummm… y’know that’s easy enough for you, right? That’s easy homework, listen to me talk to you. You’re doing that already, look at you, you’re so good.
Let’s balance it out with something trickier. Here is your Permissive Circumstance. Okay, come on, hope you had your coffee, tea, run? Whatever you need to do this morning… or afternoon, or evening, depending on when you’re listening… what is [REDACTED]?
You can have a few seconds, I won’t count down. That seems cruel, and… did you get [REDACTED]? If you worked it out before I kindly told you the answer, you have my permission today. But if you’re doing Locktober, even if you got [REDACTED], oh my dear… you’re wrong.
In this episode, let’s just take a moment to talk about Locktober. Are you taking part? Honestly, it’s not really my thing, and you certainly won’t catch me taking any oaths of chastity… but I do like the look of those shiny cages, and I do enjoy teasing people.
I have a few ideas of how to make this month more fun if you’re keeping to a regimen of abstinence, mostly coming through some Locktober-themed MCF’s which you’ll hear about soon enough… though the Marshmallow Trigger Setting is freely available, and the chastity themed variation is half-price right now.
Today I also touch upon some advice for journaling. A few responses to September Goals were in journal form and I really enjoyed reading them (especially a certain someone who responded over three emails).
My Patrons received a Saturday Session on Friday, a new version of the Naughty Bunny Trigger Setting. I will tell you all a little more about it shortly, and decide how I’m publishing it.
In this instalment, let’s start October by looking at how well we achieved our goals for September. With smoothie advice and a nihilistic play.
Pocket Pet’s Free Trigger Setting session can be found here.
Today is Friday, and this is Eunoia Spoken by Elswyth. Eunoia is all about the connection between us outside of our playtime together. Send your notes through Patreon or the SpokenByElswyth website to be included in the Listen section, and continue on to Obey for the Homework, Permissive Circumstance, etcetera.
So, today is Friday… uh… October 1st. Yes. I know, I know, you know me… if you know me. You know I love it when the first day of the month falls on the first day of the week, but for October I’ll take this. It’s okay. I think part of that is because of the magic going on in my inbox. I did not know what to expect of my September Naughty and Nice goal challenge when I tossed it out there. Just kinda… threw it out there, in the wind, and told you not to check in and whatever else, and just to turn them in at the end of the month.
Honestly, I really wondered what was going to come of that. Ummm… but man, you know what? I shouldn’t have. I should have known. They started arriving yesterday and there’s a lot, a lot of them. Oh, so what I was going to do, this is all anonymous, the responses and stuff those will happen privately, but I wanted to give you a few examples of what went on.
So, one person, they spent the month reaching out to people in their local kink community, going to some munches and meeting some people. Well done on that, breaking out of your comfort zone that is incredibly hard, and progress? That’s impressive.
Someone else, they acquainted themselves with their Vitamix. If you do not know what a Vitamix is, imagine those insane YouTube videos, and I swear I do not watch these things, I just have friends that do, and they’re like “Hey, look at this!” and then I suddenly find myself looking at their phone watching this YouTube video.
But if you imagine one that’s like “Will it Blend?” and its ummm… I don’t know, a VANS shoe, or… I’m really coming at a loss here, a Nokia phone, y’know, something like that. Imagine that… “Will it Blend?” and now imagine the blender. That’s probably a Vitamix. It’s just this heavy-duty, does-everything, including making hot soup kind of thing. Okay… so…
They reacquainted themselves with their Vitamix and indulged in some delicious smoothies, real ones, with veggies in them. I always like… I have one particular family member, and we only talk at a distance because obviously I’m in the UK now, and they’re still over in the States, and… as we would say in the South “Bless their heart”… they basically think if you throw it in the blender, whizz it around for a bit, it somehow becomes healthy. And they showed me their ingredient list for a smoothie once, and it was crazy… it was like a Greek yoghurt, like a vanilla Greek yoghurt, it was peanut butter, and again these aren’t like inherently bad, right? It was bananas, and a… man I can’t even think of which other fruits, I don’t know, the list just went on and on. And then they decided it needed some chocolate, ’cause chocolate goes with peanut butter, so they have like this protein powder and I swear by the time they’ve finished this was like 3,000 calories of fruit. Fruit and peanut butter and ’cause it was heavy on the peanut butter, and yoghurt. And to them it was just… it was health food, because it came out of the blender and it was a smoothie.
Anyway, this person… they… in their Vitamix they were making real ones, with veggies in them. I used to, when I was a medical professional, and I had people say “Ooh, I’ve been juicing.” and I’d say “Okay, what are you juicing?” and it almost always would be something like… apple and carrot juice, or orange and carrot juice, and in my mind if you want a pat on the back for juicing, you better be juicing celery. Though really don’t, just eat the celery, but if you’re juicing celery and wheatgrass and I don’t know… cilantro, and something else in together and you’re drinking that, that’s hardcore and that probably has something good in it for you, okay…
…we are six minutes into this and I have got totally caught on a tangent. I wish I could see Pita’s face as he is editing this because he is just going to wonder what happened. I’m in a good mood, though. I got up early, I grabbed a fanstic shower, I ummm… my clothes were warm, they were on the heated drying rack. If you are not in the UK that probably means nothing to you, because you probably just throw everything in the drier. Here they call it the “tumble drier” and they view it with suspicion like its just going to explode… ummm… then took the doggo for a walk, and we got out pretty early, y’know, when the sky is still that blue light, you know, that perfect light for waking you up. It was just great… great way to start the month. Okay… and let’s see here.
Oh, and one of the sub-goals of September’s challenge was beginning to set up some good habits, outside of January First, because those promises, the January First thing? That’s really hard, and I think it’s hard because everybody else is starting, and then everybody else is quitting, at that two-week mark, right? And they’re tossing it off, but they can’t quit unless you quit, and then it’s like the crab in the pot syndrome. So, doing it a different month, and if you weren’t around to hear me last month, go ahead and do it this month. Keep track for an entire month, without telling me, of a Naughty and Nice goal and then at the end of the month as you’re carving your pumpkin tell me what it was.
Hey, kudos if you can carve your goal into a pumpkin.
If you spent your month on strength training or brain training, and I had quite a few of these in some capacity, I am proud of you. I think that it’s a fun thing to do, especially strength training, that’s very measurable. You can set that goal, you can see yourself progressing, I think that’s kind of motivation in itself.
And, more than one of my dear listeners went orgasm-free for the month. I have a delightful photograph of a gridded notebook page with thirty proud checkmarks… and another they spent their time listening to lots of chastity training and the pocket pet sessions throughout the month.
Okay, speaking of Pocket Pet today is also the day that the Pocket Pet Session One adventure is shared with my Patrons. The free trigger is in the shop and I’ll link in the notes, as well… be sure to listen to that a few times before moving on to the first session. As another part of your listening, Geoff has also graciously allowed for his song to be shared, and that’s also going to be over on Patreon for my Happy Harem to hear.
And I’ve enjoyed getting back to these Almost-Daily Eunoias, just to note Saturday is generally a Session release day, and yeah, you will have a new session on Saturday. I will continue to release those early for Patrons, or make you wait depending on whatever sounds right to me at the time. This Sunday we’re going to have a breathing and journal advice tidbit that happens during the… our breathing time together. I am going to start weaving those Sundays, those breathing practices, into the Monday MCF’s. Reality is, the more we interact together, the easier and actually more fun it is to create these sessions for our mutual pleasure.
Okay, after all of that listening, it’s time to Obey. So, let’s find a good position. Let’s find a position that makes you feel optimistic. Maybe that is standing? Feet… shoulder width apart, hands on your hips, shoulders kinda up and back? Maybe its filling your space more, if you find that you’re kind of, your arms are crossed and you’re small, try putting your arms out, take up more space.
The beginning of the month, the end of the work week for many, I want you to breathe in the color of beginning. And breathe out the color of end. Obviously these colors will be different for everyone. But breathe in that color of beginning, in that confident pose, optimistic pose that you have found. Breath it is, and breathe out the color of end. Being good to yourself, taking this time for yourself is important. I want you healthy and balanced, I want your mind sharp, after all where else am I going to play?
Breathe in the color of beginning, breath out the color of end. Your Homework is to tell me those colors, and I’ll tell you your Permissive Circumstance in a moment.
Again, breathe in the color of beginning. Breath out the color of end.
The character Jan, in an Albert Camus play, has this quote… “Autumn is a second Spring, where every leaf is a flower.” I know… not everyone is entering into Autumn, or Fall, but you’re welcome to live vicariously through me. And imagine those creamy wool sweaters, the deep green boots to keep out the damp, and lots of excuses to drink hot beverages, after a walk spent crunching through the leaves.
Welcoming a new month, welcoming a new season, breathing in the color of beginning, breathing out the color of end.
So the quote, “Autumn is a second Spring, where every leaf is a flower.” and then I remembered… and then I remembered the play. The quote is lovely, the play is… well it’s like a Greek tragedy without being Greek and well, the clever among you, you’ll likely know where this is going with your PC. Your Permissive Circumstance is this.
If you can name the play without looking it up of course, you have my Permission for release today. I’ll give you a couple hints… first hint… it is a two-word title, and the first word is “The”. Second hint, another one of the characters in this play, other than Jan, is Martha.
Alright, enjoy your Friday and enjoy the session tomorrow, and for my dear Happy Harem, make sure you go over to Patreon so you can download that first full session using that Pocket Pet trigger. Well done on your patience.
