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’s Eunoia includes information about the new pillar, thank yous for my wonderful gifts, and another breathing technique. I will say, I have a few naughty ones that didn’t pass the patron patience test! Somehow, I’ll forgive you. Maybe a bit of C-Time? Or a long love letter promising future obedience? So many options.
For some of you, this may be a true beginning with me. For others, it may be a continuation of your growth. And there are the few that need that “restart”.
I’m grateful for my dear Happy Harem and your support throughout this trying summer. Even the little notes checking on my family with Hurricane Ida, etc, mean quite a bit to me. Acts of service through the giving of time is part of my love language – shocking, eh?
I hinted at this in an earlier Eunoia but finally solidified the best way for us to progress through this September. I’m still playing some catching up with my Real Work, but I have a gazillion ideas for SbE that I want to see to fruition. Today’s Eunoia has an HW / PC in it regarding one such project. Send your reply.
So you are going to jump into your fall with a Naughty & Nice Goal Setting and every day that you work towards one of them, you’ll give yourself a point. Write down (digital or electronic) what you did to progress, even small things count as progress, and at the end of the month, you’ll send it my way.
You will be rewarded based on how many days you completed. No fibbing. Got that?
Keeping track can be done with a spreadsheet, napkin, or an artistic endeavour completely with coloured pencils. If you go with non-digital, just snap a pic of it on Sept 30th.
I will share in the first Oct Eunoia what others got up to (anonymous of course!) and the rewards.
Here are the rules:
You must write out your N&N goals.
You may NOT tell anyone (not even me!) your goals.
You will keep a daily log of what you’ve done towards the goal (you can do one or both).
If you miss a day or two, you’ll jump back in on the current day.
You will NOT fib. No lying. No cheating. Be honest with both of us!
You must send in your record to me on Sept 30th – based on the London time zone. (yup, srsly).
All participants will receive something, but the thing will vary based on what you’ve done.
Naughty Goal Ideas
Extend your edging goal
Decrease your stamina
Learn a new skill.
Try a new toy or plan for one.
Expand your viewing list.
Write down your fantasies.
Try out a new fantasy.
After orgasm, write down The Thought that pushed you over.
One is beach themed and for my “I don’t like the beach” people, rest assured it’s not all about sandy serenity. Consider it a mini-vacation. The other is movement-based – either in everyday life or in our shared headspace.
Today’s Eunoia is a thank you, bit o’ sad, and then a clearing the slate to give space for creativity to resume. I don’t think we ever fully get over losing someone, but we do find ways to smooth the sharp edges of grief and allow more of the good and less of the sad to fill us.
Today’s Eunoia also includes the beginning of Ch13 from A Book of Matches. A good read.
Hello, lovelies! Later today a sensation play session will be going out for Patreon feedback. This session IS about getting hurt in a yummy way, so for all my masochists.. come play. For those not into it, don’t worry, I have something else planned for you later this week.
The weather has changed which means recording will FINALLY be happening again.
Thanks for all of the messages and fun pics lately. I love it.
While happy smut writing continues, we also have time together to simply breathe. Enjoy your Sunday – go outside, find some fresh air, or stay in and be cozy with a book. For those of you stuck in work, choose another day this week to be your Sunday.
If you usually skip the video, you should take the time for this one. I found a few interesting couples and I AM IN LOVE with the one necklace. The dangling charm down the back sells it. I’m just not convinced I could wear it on one of my typical evenings out! And hit the “like” button so YouTube will be all impressed by the numbers.
Happy Sunday! I plan to have an ongoing Sunday breathing session for a while longer. The chatty Eunoia will be returning for a *midweek* check-in. Doing so on Monday is a bit of a trial because it never leaves me enough time to work through messages and such. (And I do like giving praise when it is earned!).
Saturdays will likely continue to be session days. The routine makes all the difference, right? And I looooove the way we can use the PC cards to keep that game rolling. The response to PTTFO is scrumptious, but I’ll save some of that for Wednesday! I have a naughty “under the table” session just waiting to go out. If I have it edited prior to Saturday, I’m sure I can be convinced to give it to my Happy Harem a bit early.
Hurray for the end of May. What a crazy, crazy busy month! On to summer and more delightful time spent with you.
Today’s Eunoia includes shout outs, permissive circumstances, homework, lots of giggles, and some hints at what is to come. This week we add to Soliloquy (an interesting trip into ESP), Marshmallow (maybe foot fetish land?), and.. well.. perhaps another trigger session will find its way too. Thank you to my loyal ones offering me lots of love and encouragement through my way-too-busy May.
Now we have lots more time to create together. Let’s go.
p.s. the “off the cuff” sessions are something I’ve wanted to do for ages, but because I don’t want to bog Pita (or others) down in editing, I kept wondering about how to work them in. I think making these informal sessions patron-only is the way to go. If you want to disagree (politely!) send me a note.
p.p.s. Sunday will see a return to our “Eunoia: Together” themed sessions with the next dozen weeks or so being on the same idea of.. well.. you’ll see. I know you’ll get a lot out of it.
