Conversational hypnosis is a variation on the traditional hypnosis techniques that is widely used today by many marketing and sales professionals in order to influence their prospects and customers toward the actions that will result in greater sales and a more positive buying experience.
And while conversational hypnosis is seen by some as a "mystic art" rather than a controlled process and science, the truth is, there's a very strict protocol practitioners must follow in order to see the positive and powerful results it can have on their success.Conversational hypnosis follows a regimented 4 stage protocol adapted from the origins and history of modern hypnosis. By following the framework of these 4 stages, you will be building the solid foundations of influence and persuasion.The first of the 4 stages is to absorb attention. This simply means capturing the focus of your subject, and drawing them into the ideas and suggestions you'll be proposing. Conversational hypnotists use "linguistic bridges," a means of conversation that will transition the process from the conscious to the hypnotic state. Stage 2 is to bypass the critical factor. The "critical factor" is what many of us would consider our conscious objection to suggestion and our propensity for skepticism. Without bypassing this level of awareness, your subject will be resistant to the hypnotic state, and unable to respond on a subconscious level. Through tonality and use of precision language, you will be able disarming a subject's number one obstacle to suggestion: The critical mind.After removing resistance and bypassing the critical mind, you will be able to move onto stage 3, the introduction of hypnotic suggestion. By staging your suggestions in the form of advice, your suggestions will resonate much clearer in your subject's mind, and the advice you are offering will be able to plant its seeds in the unconscious mind. After you have bypassed the critical mind and developed the hypnotic suggestions within the subconscious of your subject, you will seek to activate an unconscious response. Unconscious responses may vary, but a positive sign will be an emotional response from your subject. Because emotional responses originate from the subconscious mind, they are a sign that you have successfully led your subject to a fully hypnotic state. As the hypnotist, you will have authority and control over this response, and begin to work toward the final goal of the hypnotic process.Once an unconscious response has been retrieved from the subject, you may then work toward the desired results of your hypnosis. This is the final 4th stage of the hypnotic process -- Leading the unconscious to desired outcome. With the subject in a fully hypnotic state, and the evidence of a truly unconscious response to your suggestions, it will be easy to lead your subject through the process of reaching your desired response. Through many of the techniques and strategies employed in conversational hypnosis, you will be developing a positive outcome that will make sense and result in an actionable, positive change in the subject's perspective and desires.Although there are many complex levels to achieving the result you and your subject are working toward, these 4 stages of hypnosis must be fully realized before any positive outcome can be engaged. By fully understanding these stages -- and the important roles they play when preparing your subject's unconscious mind -- you will be engaged in a hypnotic interaction that can successfully influence the positive goals you've set out to achieve.
