Eunoia (October 6th), Hypnotic Inductions

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.

Alright, see you tomorrow.

Sunday Eunoia – Breath of Fire

femdom hypnosis image

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.

September 1st – Restart / Refocus / Reset

crop unrecognizable woman writing goals for upcoming year in notepad

If only it could be Monday. Ah, well.

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?

Be sure to collect your gift!

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.

–Norton Juster

Here are the rules:

  1. You must write out your N&N goals.
  2. You may NOT tell anyone (not even me!) your goals.
  3. You will keep a daily log of what you’ve done towards the goal (you can do one or both).
  4. If you miss a day or two, you’ll jump back in on the current day.
  5. You will NOT fib. No lying. No cheating. Be honest with both of us!
  6. You must send in your record to me on Sept 30th – based on the London time zone. (yup, srsly).
  7. All participants will receive something, but the thing will vary based on what you’ve done.

Naughty Goal Ideas

  1. Extend your edging goal
  2. Decrease your stamina
  3. Learn a new skill.
  4. Try a new toy or plan for one.
  5. Expand your viewing list.
  6. Write down your fantasies.
  7. Try out a new fantasy.
  8. After orgasm, write down The Thought that pushed you over.

Nice Goal Ideas

  1. Finish 2 books
  2. Start writing a book
  3. Cycle that century
  4. Follow a routine
  5. Eat your veggies
  6. Learn a new skill
  7. Do a daily relaxation, using Eunoia or similar.
  8. Journal for 10 minutes daily

Wednesday Eunoia – Returning

corridor with doors and backlight

The (Monday) MCFs will be appearing later today. EDIT: The MCFs are now live on the player.

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.

Eunoia – Sunday – Deep Abdominal Breathing

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.

Can you DIY the SbE LDR FLR?

SbE femdom hypno image

Today’s podcast is all about expanding on the idea of personalising our time together. An Anonymous follower let me know their personal (you can do the same):

Mistress Elswyth,
I’ve been following you on YouTube for a little while and downloaded your beginner bundle. I’ve never done a safeword session for hypno before but I wanted to go to a safe place more than once during Circles Within Circles.
I went on a spending spree last week and I cannot describe with words how I feel about The Apartment. Such an exciting story and scenario. I plan to listen to Naughty Bunny and Eternal Suitor once a week each and use the little affirmations on any day I don’t have time.
May I have permission to cum (or not, at my own discretion) on days when I don’t hear your voice on Eunoia?
Thank You, Thank You,

Completely Yours

Denial & Rewards Feedback

J writes: My fav denial is strange, I think. I practice fasting and when I break my fast I always do it with an involved meal that takes a while to cook . It feels like meditation tagged onto the end. The food tastes better too.

N writes:

I can deny the whims into tangents of my present self to reward my future self with goals fulfilled.

I can deny the immediate carnal desires of my present self to reward my future self with satisfaction of greater value.

I can deny the unhealthy habits of my present self to reward my future self with new stamina and self-respect.

TM writes:

First of all, thank you for today’s release my goddess.  I did not know the flower. I will try not to release today until the end of the day. Denial and reward. If I disobey reward or release, will i get it soon or do I care? The only thing I care about is mistress. My pleasure is derived from hers. My release is not important. Reward#1 worshipping goddess’ feet. Reward#2 goddess using my face as a throne until she is satisfied. Reward#3 looking in my goddess’ eyes as she thinks of tasks for me. Denial#1 teasing me relentlessly while I wear petite underwear. Denial#2 edging on a schedule. Denial#3 hourly denial and teasing, promised release if withstanding the tease, although ultimately denied at the end but promised release soon

V writes:
Regarding permissive circumstances and denial/ rewards, I often use days that fall under denial to refocus my energies into an unfinished endeavor or whatever cloud is hanging around that needs to be dealt with.   Denial or reward I’m assured a positive outcome that will only bring me closer to being the best “me” or “Sabriel” I can be. My current project stems from my “3 ways” and I’m overjoyed with its progress. Pic and hopefully video to follow.

Wednesday – hypnosis personas and a new poll

selective focus photography of bombay cat

Today there is a new poll up for Patrons to vote on their favourite personas (from the choices allowed). You are (almost) always free to make choices in the conditions of my choosing. It may, or may not, be related to what I have planned for you this weekend.

You can find the poll here

Remember, voting is important. A great way for a submissive man to exercise your almost-right to sometimes choose. This is an FLR, it wouldn’t be nearly as much fun if you had lots of freedom.

We continue to talk about hypnosis personas by digging deeper. And I do like going deeper. Below you will find some comments and questions from my followers. I know some of you are too damn shy to ask for yourself, so maybe you’ll see your question magically asked by someone else? As long as it is *shyness* and not laziness, that’s fine. You’re not allowed to be lazy.

The Apartment has resulted in many sheets needing to be washed. Oh, wet dreams. Who knew those could pop back up after puberty? Amnesia play is scrumptious when done with someone that you trust. It makes my heart sing that you specifically said you like being seduced. I’m not one of those that just wait to be pursued. Like Athena, I value a good hunt. Unlike Athena, I’d never chosen a life of virginity.

Today’s Eunoia includes homework and a permissive circumstance. Lucky you.

Homework & Feedback

Anon Says:

Do you have younger submissives? How much does age matter to you?

ME – Yes.

Age matters for the 18+ legal issue, otherwise it is all about creativity and love for life. How can I enjoy hypnosis personas with a person lacking an imagination? I also can’t do someone who mopes about their age (either end of the spectrum) nor do I worry much about staying in a certain range. One serious long-term relationship was with a guy quite a bit older. Now, my “in everyday life” loves happen to be about the same age — and younger than I am. It all works out in the end, right?

R Says:

More than a handful of messages, including one from R, are quite similar. This one says “Mistress, I’m begging you, please use me”.

ME – It’s safe to guess that R listened to The Apartment – Mind Control session

Beg more.

I’d like at least a page (handwritten) of begging.

K Says:

K writes: Your words are like oxygen

ME – Thank you.

B Says:

What color boat would you pick?

ME – Red, of course. It feels like the traditional narrowboat colour. It also suits me perfectly. Now I just need a catchy name (and funds!)

Persona homework:

I may not have given enough specifics here earlier so I’ll give it another go. I guess you could say I’ve dabbled with furry fandom but never dove in. I couldn’t say what “fursona” fits me best but if I go with one of those personality quizzes, it pegs me as a Fox as I “ strive to find adventure and entertain my hunger for living life.”

ME – I don’t have a fursona, although I often claim to soak up sunshine like a lizard. Something tells me that spotted skink isn’t likely to be a sexy fun fursona for a weekend of play. They’re not even furry!

Anon Says:

What do you notice about a stranger?

ME – This question popped up in my inbox shortly after I published Violet. I’ve hinted at studying others at the library, cafe, and other similar locations. I’m not a stalker, but I do love watching people.

What I notice first? What they’re carrying. This is sadistic of me and my apologies to those of you who will forever be self-conscious. I love watching those come into the cafe around 9:20am with their laptop bags and “I’m gonna get work done” faces on… only for them to look around the room and realize all of the outlets are taken.

Another Says:

I like many adventures. It helps me explore ideas that might not have occurred to me (CEI, feminization, prostrate play.) If the play is something I am not interested in I know new play is right around the corner.

ME – Perfect response and quite true! I have a love for many types of play and enjoy exploring all of them. I think the hypnosis persona play also allows someone to take on (or discard) a variety of roles.

Eunoia – Santa Baby, Boxing Day edition

set of different gift boxes on table

Good almost afternoon! I admit, I got so excited about “boxing day” that I forgot about this unscheduled eunoia. I’m one of Those People that seriously loves packing away all of the Christmas stuff and prepping for New Year. Do remember to keep sending in the Naughty & Nice 2021 Words/Phrases. The responses have been quite entertaining!

Boxing day is usually a huge black friday style shopping event here. Prior to that it was about servants getting boxes of gifts. I’m wondering what I could box up that would make for a delightful present for a.. umm.. servant?

Monday Eunoia – Good morning!

person in santa outfit holding a gift box

It is a yet another rainy day here, but I still love a Monday. I’m going to pretend it is “loud snow” and carry on with the day. It helps that it is 7am and still pitch black outside.

How is your final week of Christmas prep? I know a few friends of mine are secretly delighted to be unable to travel to a half dozen different houses for Christmas. I foresee a lot of league being played, or perhaps the new PS5.

Listen to the intro before jumping into this Monday Eunoia.

Love, Mistress.
