Glance fixation refers to the concentration of the hypnotized person on a particular point or object. This is known, among other things, through a somewhat clichéd depiction of hypnosis, in which the hypnotist holds a pendulum in front of the hypnotized person's face while making recurring suggestions. This somewhat outdated technique is rarely used today, but it describes the principle of gaze fixation quite well. The hypnosis participant focuses on a certain point and this can help to initiate the hypnosis. However, it is not enough to just stare at a certain point, what is most important are the suggestions to initiate the hypnosis.
