  2. 2. Introduction To The World of Conversational Hypnosis.Conversational hypnosis is the ultimate form of hypnosis and builds upon, not onlythousands of years of human experience but also hundreds of years of clinical casestudy and experiment. Conversational hypnosis incorporates hypnosis techniquessuch as Ericksonian Hypnosis and neuro linguistic programming (NLP) to buildeffective hypnotic language patterns that are proven to work. Once conversational hypnosis was only within reach of the medical profession or well funded business executives. Now anyone with the time and commitment can learn how to hypnotize anyone, anywhere at any-time. Just like any other skill, mass use has seen the effectiveness of conversational hypnosis improve rapidly. Today, whether it is referred to as covert hypnosis or street hypnosis, it is arguably the most powerful psychological technique ever seen. Hypnosis, in its various guises, is used the world over by millions of people to achieve positive, and sometimes,remarkable change. People can achieve weight loss, give up smoking, reduce theirstress levels or learn to relax; they can improve self confidence and self esteem,overcome difficult psychological and psychosomatic problems such as insomnia oraddiction; they can even learn new skills such as foreign languages or the perfect golfswing. Whatever people need to use hypnosis for it can enable them to develop newways of thinking about previously unresolvable problems, acquire a deeperunderstanding of themselves and the world around them and resolve personal oremotional issues.However the ready availability of effective conversational hypnosiscourses has meant that thousand have also discovered thepersonal advantages of using this skill. What would you do ifyou could effectively hypnotize someone without them knowingit, in any social situation at pretty much any time?

  4. 4. How Does Conversational Hypnosis Work?So how does hypnosis work and why, in particular, is conversational hypnosis such apotent technique? In order to answer this question we first need to understand howhypnosis works. Therefore we need to know how the mind functions and whyhypnosis has such an effect upon it.Imagine that the mind is like a layered pyramid. The top layer, at the sharp end of ourdaily activity, is the conscious mind. This part of our mind enables us to concentrateupon everyday tasks such as writing, driving or reading. It is the decision making partof the mind, and is the part of our selves that interacts with the outside world. If weare walking down the street and the person walking towards us appears to be on acollision course it is our conscious mind that makes the necessary decision to eitherwalk around the person or say “excuse me” and continue on our path.The next layer is our subconscious mind. This is like the hard drive of a computer. Itstores all the information we need in order to make “conscious” decisions. If you ridea bicycle you soon forget the actual physical process of being able to balance, peddle,brake and so on. Your conscious mind is free to concentrate on the process ofavoiding hazards and finding your route.However you havent forgotten the basic principles. If you did, every time you got onthe bike would be like the first. Finding your way would be the least of yourproblems. It is because we subconsciously remember how to ride a bicycle that we canconcentrate on other aspects. If we didnt subconsciously understand that turning thehandlebars makes you go around corners we wouldnt get very far. Conversational Hypnosis Unveiled
  5. 5. The final, baseline layer is the unconscious mind. This controls our basic functionssuch as breathing or heart rate. We have no direct control over our unconscious mind.If we are frightened by something our unconscious mind is unable to rationalize this.It only knows that we are frightened and responds automatically by telling ouradrenal gland to produce more adrenaline in order to prepare us for either “fight orflight.” Similarly, if we are happy, our unconscious mind instructs our brains torelease more endorphins to increase our pleasure. The unconscious makes nojudgement of our experience it simply responds to stimuli and delivers theappropriate instruction to our bodies various components. Therefore we can see that the subconscious is perhaps the most influential part of the human mind. It is both extremely well organized and has the capacity to store seemingly limitless amounts of information. Every experience we have is memorized, filed and retrieved when we need it. The understanding and knowledge, gained from a lifetime of experience, is used by the subconscious to formulate our belief systems. Itis where we retain our sense of morality and holds the concepts that actually shapeour view of the world.Many of these beliefs will be readily available to our conscious minds. These tend tobe the concepts and ideas that we change more often, such as our political ortheological views. However others reside deeper in our subconscious and are lessaccessible. These are generally more closely linked to our emotional responses suchas our self image or attachments to others. They remain powerful controlling factors forour behavior but, under normal circumstances, we are relatively powerless to doanything about them. Conversational Hypnosis Unveiled
  6. 6. How Can Conversational Hypnosis Help People?For example, lets assume that you are frightened by spiders.Perhaps you had a childhood experience with a spider thatscared you. As a child, you didnt know whether or not thespider was dangerous and your unconscious mind delivered abig dose of adrenaline to your body, increasing your anxietyand preparing you to either run away screaming or squash it.Your subconscious stored this experience. This, relativelyminor incident, could have been one of the most powerfulexperiences you ever had at such a young age. Therefore afear of spiders was adopted by you subconsciously.Subsequently, as an adult, you may well have discovered that spiders are nothing tobe scared of. However subconsciously, even though you may have absolutely noconscious memory of the original event, due to the emotional impact and unconsciousresponse that the childhood experience caused, you remain terrified of spiders.You may be able to consciously control your reaction to spiders as an adult.Nonetheless, because the subconscious fear remains, the sight of a spider stillprompts the associated unconscious response. Basically your anxiety levels gothrough the roof whenever one of our little, eight legged friends is about. For manypeople this unconscious response, driven by the subconscious belief, isoverwhelming. They simply can not control their behavior. In extreme cases this canbecome a phobia (arachnophobia) with a significant impact upon lives. Hypnosis, and especially conversational hypnosis, is such an effective psychological intervention because it enables communication with the subconscious mind. By suggesting different ways of thinking about problems to the subconscious, conversational hypnosis makes it possible to change how we unconsciously respond to an event or situation. Therefore, not only can our behavior be changed but more importantly the underlying emotional responses can also be addressed.Hypnosis achieves this because we organize and file the information in oursubconscious using language. Language is the tool that enables us to orchestrate andmake sense of the raw information we store subconsciously. It enables us to construct Conversational Hypnosis Unveiled
  7. 7. the filing system that we use to subsequently retrieve that information when we needit. Hypnosis uses language to make subtle changes to that process. These changes canultimately have a profound effect. Learning how to use hypnotic language properly isa skill that most of us are capable of learning. However conversational hypnosis hastaken this skill to a new and incredibly exciting level. So why is conversational hypnosisso effective in particular? Conversational Hypnosis Unveiled
  8. 8. Why Is Conversational Hypnosis The Most Effective Technique?The subconscious is analytical and maintains itsconstructed beliefs wherever possible. This is animportant psychological defense mechanism calledthe the “critical factor.” The critical factor is usedby us to balance new information against thatwhich we already have at our disposal. Forexample if I tell you that a submarine is a type ofcar your critical factor will reject this as a falsestatement. This is extremely important asotherwise we would not be able to discern factfrom fiction and would believe any old nonsense. The critical factor is a hurdle thathypnosis needs to overcome in order to effect change.For example often people who are morbidly obese have extremely a pitiful selfimage. They may well believe this as a result of childhood or lifelong experiences ofpoor treatment by others, especially other family members. This builds and reinforcesthe subconscious belief that they are worthless and the subsequent low self esteemdepresses their mood. Eating, on the other hand, stimulates the pleasure areas of thebrain. Therefore, for someone who is normally low in self esteem and depressed inmood, eating food with high sugar and fat content provides some temporary relief.However, it also makes you fat. This then makes you unhealthy and can create a badbody image. The cycle is self perpetuating.It is rarely any use simply telling this person that they are not worthless, because thesubconscious critical factor is at odds with such statements. Quite simply they dontbelieve it whenever anybody tells them that they are beautiful and valued individualsas the subconscious instructs the conscious mind to reject any such statement. Thechange that is necessary, in order for them to effectively take action to address theirunhealthy lifestyles, needs to be made at a subconscious level.Hypnosis works be effectively distracting the critical factor thus allowing access tothe subconscious. This is achieved by focusing the conscious mind upon an activity,object or, in the case of conversational hypnosis, a discussion. When the consciousmind is captivated in this way then the critical factor is less active and hypnoticsuggestion to the subconscious is possible. This process is called trance.Many people believe that being in a trance is like being asleep. However trance is Conversational Hypnosis Unveiled
  9. 9. actually a state where the conscious mind is fully occupied. It is in effect a state ofheightened awareness for the conscious mind. Whilst a person is in trance the hypnotist can attempt to adjust concepts and beliefs that may be stopping a them from moving forward or managing a problematic behavior. Hypnosis does this by attaching positive suggestion to established ideas through the use of imagery and metaphor. For example, in the case of the over-eater, hypnosis may suggest that they imagine themselves at their correct weight and envisage what it would be like to have ahealthy weight. This is reinforced by repeating the benefits of feeling fitter, lookingbetter and so on. Using this sort of hypnosis technique the hypnotherapist is able toconstruct a better self image at a subconscious level and give the person the willpower to address their unhealthy lifestyle.However, the problem with this kind of traditional hypnosis is that the person isaware that they are being hypnotized and has to initially give their permission for theprocess to take place. Therefore this assumes that they recognize the problem in thefirst place and, for many with underlying psychological obstacles, this is not the case.In addition, because the hypnosis is agreed the persons critical factor is alreadyalerted. This creates the need for a deeper hypnotic trance and prolonged treatment.Conversational hypnosis, on the other hand, does not require the person beinghypnotized to be aware of the hypnosis. In fact, conversational hypnosis is at its mosteffective precisely when the subject is not consciously aware of whats going on. Thisis why it is often referred to as covert hypnosis and is both the reason why it is soincredibly powerful and why many are suspicious of its use.Conversational hypnosis uses the sameprinciples as other traditional hypnosismethods but the techniques used are farmore effective. For example, in traditionalhypnosis the trance is induced by use of anobject or even physical contact. This meansthat the person being hypnotized has to makea conscious decision to be hypnotized.Therefore they are already, by definition,anticipating hypnosis and are already Conversational Hypnosis Unveiled
  10. 10. committed, to some extent, to wanting change in their lives. At a subconscious levelthey expect to be hypnotized. Therefore any suggestions made will be accepted asbeing part of the hypnosis process. Consequently, at a later date, they will attach lessmeaning to these suggestions. Whereas the previously established patterns ofbehavior will be given greater validity because they are felt to come from a genuineexperience.On the other hand conversational hypnosis enables the hypnotist to make suggestionsto the person being hypnotized of which they are completely unaware. Consequentlythese suggestions are far more likely to be adopted. There will be no subconsciousacknowledgment of the hypnosis process and any new, modified ways of thinkingwill be given the same recognition as any other belief constructs. In effect, the personbeing hypnotized accepts the suggestions made under conversational hypnosis astheir own, personal thoughts.The degree of suggestibility is much higher because the critical factor is barelyalerted at all. Not only that but the trance induction process takes place throughnormal conversation. This is a far more natural way for people to communicate andtherefore makes it easier for the hypnotist to establish a hypnotic connection (orrapport). This further means that the depth of trance can be relatively less but canachieve greater effect. This makes it easier to calibrate and sustain for longer periodsand, in turn, allows a greater flexibility for suggested change. Conversational Hypnosis Unveiled

You can then use subtly changinghypnotic language to keep them in the trance for as long as you need.Even more incredible though is the way that conversational hypnosis speech patternsbecome like second nature. You actually subconsciously absorb them yourself. Thismeans that when you want to hypnotize somebody it is incredibly easy to do so. Ifyou practice hard enough hypnotizing someone with conversational hypnosisbecomes like second natureDont get me wrong, conversational hypnosis is one of those skills that can be learnedin a relatively short time but will take a lifetime to master.
