Hypnotize Anyone!

  1. 1. Hypnotize Anyone! The Power of Covert Hypnosis (also Known as Conversational Hypnosis) Did you know there's a way to hypnotize people without their actually being aware of it? It's called quot;conversational hypnosis,quot; or “covert hypnosis,” and the fact is, you might be using it without even being aware you're using it yourself. Before we go any further, watch this quick video on just how powerful this technique is -- itʼs pretty amazing what can be done when this power is in the wrong hands! Basically, whenever you convince someone to do something within the course of conversation, without that person being aware of it, you may be using conversational hypnosis. (And by the same token, you may have also been an unwitting subject of conversational hypnosis.) However, it was hypnotist and psychotherapist Milton Erickson who formally defined conversational hypnosis as a formal technique. Erickson was unique in his field because he believed Conversational hypnosis that trance states were in fact common and not rare. isn’t like the stuff you see in the movies. It’s a way In addition, he believed that trance states were in fact a natural state that people slip into several times a day. to use easy-to-learn techniques to influence We daydream or go into a trance state, for example, behavior in someone else. when we are waiting in line and our attention drifts away, when we're working very hard at something and Click here to see how it are extremely focused, when we're bored, and so on. works!
  2. 2. Erickson's technique was revolutionary because he also theorized that trying to directly induce a trance state in the subject or trying to make suggestions to them directly may cause them to resist. Because of this, quot;directivesquot; worked into a conversation very subtly were much more likely to be effective. There are several steps to performing conversational hypnosis. Here they are... Establish Rapport The first step in conversational hypnosis is that one must establish a rapport with the subject. This can pretty simple to establish in that you agree with what someone is saying. For example, if the subject says that something is hopeless, you agree with them and say that it is, indeed, hopeless. Many people swear that simple (and totally honest) conversational hypnosis techniques Create Confusion have dramatically improved their love life! The next thing you have to do is to Click here to see why! confuse the issue at hand. For example, it if your subject says that something is hopeless, and you have just agreed as well that the situation is hopeless.
  3. 3. Then, you confuse the issue by saying something to the effect of, quot;But are you absolutely sure it's not hopeless? What if such-and-such would happen? Would it still be hopeless?quot; So, sometimes people think this is a sneaky “trick.” But in reality, if you use it the right way, itʼs nothing more than simple persuasion at work. (Click here to see why this works and how to use it the right way.) Besides opening up the issue to an alternative view, you can also confuse the issue by further agreeing and therefore subtly prodding the other person to resist or disagree with you. For example, you could expand upon your earlier agreement with your subject's assertion that the situation is hopeless, and then say, quot;No one in the world could ever fix that,quot; or, quot;There's absolutely nothing that could be done to fix that; you're right.quot; Another way to confuse the issue is to so totally agree with the subject's point of view that you encourage that person to continue to do more of the same behavior or even dig deeper into their seemingly intractable point of view. For example, you've agreed with them that the situation is hopeless already, so you can say, quot;Yep, you can just sit down and give up. You're right; it's hopeless. In fact, we should all just give up. There's no use.quot; Implant Suggestion Now that you've got your subject thoroughly confused, the next and final thing to do is to subtly suggest something you want the person to agree to. In the above example, you're trying to get the subject to agree with you or see that the situation is not hopeless after all, or at least to try to get them to be a little less intractable. (Oftentimes, conversational hypnosis works in degrees. You begin conversational hypnosis with one conversation, leave it off at a certain

Once you've gotten to this point, you can begin to make suggestions to the person like, quot;You seem to be feeling a little less hopeless. Am I right about that?quot; This opens the door for the person to begin to agree that yes, indeed, he or she doesn't feel like the Many successful people in business, sales, situation is truly hopeless after all. marketing, and advertising say that hypnosis Many people have gained great techniques have helped them reach the top success using these techniques. of their field.

It should be noted that in some cases, the conversions have not lasted and people once again revert to previous beliefs, as often happens in regular hypnosis as well. Nonetheless, this is a very effective technique and one that has been successfully used by many people. I strongly encourage you to learn more about this techniques right here (click on the link).
