Do you want to be able to influence others? Be persuasive in your arguments and have the people around you follow your lead? If you want to become a “social Alpha”, and use conversational hypnosis in ethical ways, then you should read this article. We’re going to cover the benefits and history of conversational hypnosis, and most importantly give you a quick start on how to hypnotize people conversationally.
So let’s get started!
History of Conversational Hypnosis
It started with Dr. Milton H. Erickson, who was arguably the greatest hypnotherapist of the 20th century. Back in his times, the American Medical Association forbid medical doctors to practice hypnosis with their patients. Erickson didn’t want to let go of this powerful method that helped so many of the people who came to see him for help – but he didn’t want to lose his license to practice as an M.D. either.
That’s why he developed ways to hypnotize people secretly – nobody knew that hypnosis was being practiced, because non of that “you’re getting sleepy, and as a I count to three, you fall in a deep trance” hypnosis talk was going on. Rather, Erickson was “just talking” to people. It was really a kind of camouflaged hypnosis.
Many brilliant minds, including Richard Bandler and John Grinder, the founders of NLP (Neurolinguistic Programming), studied Erickson’s method and taught it to others. One of the most outstanding students in recent days was a guy named Igor, who is now himself teaching these methods very successfully.
Why Master Conversational Hypnosis?
Why should you care to master conversational hypnosis? What will it do for you in your life? That’s a great question to ask, and since I don’t know you personally, I can’t tell you precisely, but here’s just some of the things it COULD do for you:
- make you more authoritative and influential
- be able to negotiate a higher salary, a promotion, better prices with your customers and cheaper prices from your suppliers
- make friends with anybody by making “instant rapport”
- easily make others want to do what you want them to do
- compel colleagues to do what you want
- have children and teenagers listen to you – and respect you
- get anyone to say “yes”
- and much more…
How To Hypnotize Conversationally
The first step if you want to influence someone is to clearly define for yourself what it is that you want them to do. I know this sounds obvious, but oftentimes people “just want to influence people”, but don’t know about what, and then they wonder why they’re not persuasive.
Next, you need to gain rapport. There are ways to persuade people without rapport, but for the beginning it’s a lot easier to use rapport to get things your way.
After that, you “plant ideas” in their minds. This is very important, because you don’t want people to be perceiving you as if you boss them around. Rather, make them feel like they do what they want because THEY want. Make them feel like it’s their own idea.
Then, elicit a commitment from them and do a future pace that makes them imagine the positive results they get from taking the action you want them to.
If all this sounds oversimplified, then you’re right. This is highly oversimplified. There’s a lot more to it – specific techniques and a certain methodology how to do it, clearly defined steps.
