It is impressionable and can easily be fooled into thinking that one thing is actually another! At the surface of these many layers are the mental lenses. The subconscious is the most vulnerable part of the human mind. I know what you’re thinking right now… Perhaps we can just break down a subject’s mental lenses so that they would see things our way? My answer would be no. a policeman who specializes in gang-related crime would have a mental lens that focuses on the common signs of gang activity.The Hypnotic Language Formula The Six-Step Hypnotic Language Formula Step One: The Switch Every person on this planet is equipped with a basic set of defenses against influence and persuasion. mental lenses can be cracked momentarily but they can never be truly broken down. it would take a lot of effort and energy to break down a mental lens that has been in use for years.

Essentially. Jones 14 .The Hypnotic Language Formula How is hypnotic induction performed? There are 3 main groups of hypnotic language patterns that are considered the most effective in inducing controlled trance states in regular day-to-day conversations: visualization patterns. Sensory-Stimulation Patterns – Sensory stimulation patterns can be used on their own or they can be used to complement a longer visualization pattern. 3. When you ask a subject to imagine something for you. It plays with a person’s senses and a person willingly experiences these strange sensations by simply listening to the hypnotist. Here’s an example: Imagine that your left hand is becoming lighter and lighter while your right hand is becoming heavier and heavier. 1. Left hand is becoming lighter and lighter… Right hand is becoming heavier… Heavier… Heavier… This is a sample sensory-stimulation script used in clinical hypnosis. Your left hand is floating upward because there’s a big balloon tied to it and the balloon is floating upward. his present trance state is disrupted and his mind’s eye shifts to your visualization. Steve G. this group of patterns capture the subject’s attention by taking advantage of how our senses respond to verbal language. Let’s talk about each pattern and why they’re ideal for inducing hypnosis. 2. Storytelling Patterns – This is one of my favorite group of patterns because they can be used in different phases of the Six-Part Hypnotic Dr. Visualization Patterns – Visualizations patterns are the easiest to learn and apply because all you need is your imagination and the willingness to convey those mental simulations to your subject. sensorystimulation patterns and storytelling patterns.

That’s how powerful storytelling is. A person’s waking filters are governed by his own brand of logic and rational thinking. Waking filters are like heavily-guarded gates that protect both the conscious and subconscious halves of the mind. The conscious mind was designed to accept only a very small percentage of new ideas and to reject all other ideas and beliefs immediately. The mind’s primary layer of defense are its waking filters. However. The human brain has its own natural defenses against influence and persuasion. Each person subscribes to a particular way of thinking: my logic may be slightly or radically different from yours. you will be able to successfully induce hyper-awareness in your subject. Dr. These logical dissimilarities are considered the major causes of resistance in social interactions. Storytelling is an appropriate vessel for hypnotic induction because it captures not only the subject’s imagination but also his senses and how he perceives reality after the story is told. then Person B can easily reject it on the basis that it is “irrational” even if it appears rational to Person A. Steve G. A story can be also be expanded to secretly contain other hypnotic language patterns! Step Three: Circuit Shock How can you deal with a subject’s natural resistance to persuasion? After establishing rapport and building trust. this doesn’t mean that your subject will begin to agree to everything that you have to say.

Dr. When you set out to persuade or influence someone. the opposite scenario takes place: the subject of your persuasive words may be naturally resistant or in some cases.

These are just some of the basic patterns that you can use to get past the heavily guarded gates of your subject’s conscious mind.The Hypnotic Language Formula How can you shock someone’s logical circuits?

Conditioning – It will allow the influencer to gradually shift the subject’s belief about the issue so that in the end. A hypnotic suggestion is rarely expressed in just one or two sentences. What’s the difference between a hypnotic suggestion and a regular. 4.
