So then, I can actually hypnotize someone in the course of a conversation?
So, who came up with this stuff, anyway? In the 1950's, a psychiatrist named Milton Erickson MD began using hypnotic principals in conversation for his patients. The controversy surrounding covert hypnosis really begins from that point. Erickson's approach to hypnosis is to take the principals of traditional hypnosis and combine it with neurolinguistic programing and indirect suggestion, and then to apply them all in the course of conversation. His way of doing things has become more and more popular over the years because it is a supremely effective way to influence others.
What is meant by 'conversational hypnosis'? Conversational hypnosis is, in essence, the application of hypnotic speech patterns for the purpose of actually producing a hypnotic trance in the listener. You may have heard it called covert, indirect, or even 'waking' hypnosis. These terms all refer to the same thing. What we are talking about is speaking in such a way as to unite hypnotic speech and an understanding of how to embed commands, to not just command the attention of your listeners, but to direct their actions and beliefs as well.
You can use conversational hypnosis to place commands in your listener's subconscious mind as you talk to them... and you can do it in such a way that you will be the only one who knows. You may have used body postures and body language to make others think of you in a certain way. When you use conversational hypnosis, you can use those skills at the same time, making them even more effective still.
Why should you believe it works? In a word, documentation. Lots and lots of documentation. Milton Erickson published a great many works on the tool of waking hypnosis as it is used by medical doctors, as well as those in the psychiatric and dental fields. In fact, the first case study that can be verified was with Dr. Erickson himself, in which he employed his craft.
Slowly, over the course of decades, covert hypnosis has become commonplace in the practice of a great many people in the care-giving fields. One of the reasons waking hypnosis is so well liked is because there is no formal induction. For some people a formal induction is stressful, or even scary. By bypassing the formal induction, the subject remains quite suggestible. Even today case studies continue to amass, and speak to the great efficacy of conversational hypnosis.
So, can you actually hypnotize someone in the course of a conversation? Yes. By applying the secrets of conversational hypnosis in your everyday life, you can cause a positive difference in any area of your life. Anywhere you use conversation, you can apply the hypnotic language patterns, and have a better outcome for all as a result. Having an understanding of the power of conversational hypnosis will give you great power, and if you use it wisely, your life will be much better because of it.
