Conversational Hypnosis 101

May 1, 2008
If you have ever watched Star Wars you probably remember how the Force was used to talk people into doing things or accepting things. Just by lifting up the hand Obi Wan Kenobi was able to tell people exactly what to think. This is fiction of course, but by using conversational hypnosis you are able to do much of the same things. You do not even have to lift your hand.

The Basics of Converational Hypnosis

Conversational hypnosis is no magic or occult practice rather it is series of well-planned strategies and the art of manipulating others to convince them to your point of view. Conversational hypnosis is based on certain principles that were discovered by the revered hypnotist Milton Erickson. Erickson said that people slip into reveries several times a day. These instances may include times when they are concentrating hard on something or waiting for a bus.

Milton Erickson found that it was possible to use this type of trance like situations to get into a prospects mind. He also found that he was able to use this to change the way the prospect was thinking and feeling about a certain thing. By removing the resistance towards his suggestions he could implement any thought into the prospects mind. He also found that it was simple to use rapport and confusion to get people to enter this trance like state of mind. Rapport, confusion and suggestion are the ground pillars of conversational hypnosis.

Rapport: Building rapport is about getting into an agreement state of mind between two parties. When you agree to something a person say he or she start to think about you as a team member. He will look at you as a person with the same interests about the subject as he has. He will then start to build more trust into your messages.

When you have built rapport with a person he is more acceptant towards your suggestion. He will think of you as an associate and a team member and your meanings will have much more influence towards him.

Confusion: Confusion is the second principle of conversational hypnosis. Confusions is about bringing a subject into a state of mind where he does not know what to think himself and look at you for your advice. This is often as simple as saying "are you sure that is the right way to do this?"

Suggestion: Once the rapport is established and you have confused the subject, then the subject is likely to ask you about what he should do. At that moment you need to make an indirect suggestion likes "this may make you feel better!"

Conversational hypnosis is an excellent tool to influence people to your way of thinking especially if your way is beneficial to them. However, word of caution here excess use of these principles may make the person see through your technique. Conversational hypnosis is a great technique to influence your lover or your friend to your way of thinking.
