The secret art of deframing

Let's center our attention now at deframing. Deframing is almost a Jedi art of changing frames from someone because you're not going to take the objection or the challenge head on. What you're going to do is offer a counter-challenge which is more important than the original objection, and so the original objection just disappears. Let me give you a very elegant example of one of these things which happened during a pitch meeting when one of my partners and I went to a potential new client for...

Inter Loop Suggestions 2 Parallel Process

Lets go back inside. they went back. past the hedges that needed pruning. inside. the house felt warm and cosy. I have something important to tell you. Its time for a change. I need to move on. a new home. Do you want some help with moving on he asked. Martha nodded yes. Do you have a loft or an attic. some place were you store all your old things. I bet you haven't cleaned it out. maybe it's been a long time. I have a suggestion. it's only a suggestion. so think it over first go to the...

Level 3 the advanced nested loop

Okay, so we're now on to advanced level nested loops, and as you may have guessed already, an advanced nested loop looks pretty much the same as an intermediate nested loop. It's just that you're again, adding refinements to the whole thing. The first refinement has to do the trance processes that you're using. Although in the previous one, in the intermediate nested loop, you already started using trance processes as part of the suggestions at the bottom of the change pyramid, if you like, or...

Conversational Trance Blueprint

(6) Universal Quantifiers (Generalisations) all., always., never., every., none. An absolute generalisation you have all the knowledge you need combinations, learnings., understandings. A process (i.e. a verb) that has been turned into an event or a thing (i.e. a noun). This covers any noun that does not name a physical object all the learnings and understandings you have about your ability to comfortably go deeper A process that has been incompletely described you can learn A phrase that has...

The 4 stage hypnotic protocol

We're about to begin the process of learning about hypnosis itself Now, the history of hypnosis is ancient, but it's only in recent, modern times, in the 1880s, that hypnosis walked out of the 'Dark Ages' of mysticism, and we began to look at it in a more scientific way. A man called James Braid took the old style of 'Animal Magnetism' and 'Mesmerism' and studied it. And he found out that it wasn't some magnetic magical fluid that was doing all the work it was actually...

Performance Principle 2 Squeeze The Meaning

So the first think you need to learn to do is to make your voice tone match the experience you're trying to convey. It really brings your words to life. When your words come to life, people can actually have the experience that you're trying to give them. So, to do this, I want you to squeeeeeeeeze the meaning from your words. It doesn't mean that you 'squeeze' the meaning delivered in a very abrupt way , you 'squeeeeeeeeeze the meaning. You must make each word really reverberate with the...

Master Technique 8 The Authority Strategy

The final thing you want to add in, the final refinement you can add into step two is the authority strategy, the tactics to insure success. The first tactic you are going to start adding is the power tactics, the ability to create your own personal power, to become an authority inside the hypnotic world and to start using the consistency principle to make other people be consistent with the kinds of statements they are making in public. One of the simplest ways to do all these things is to...

Stealth tactic 5 binds double binds

Finally let's turn to a very specific and peculiar type of presupposition known as binds and double-binds. Now a bind is basically giving someone a tough choice, a choice that doesn't really exist. For example, there's a very amusing example of this in one of the Marx brothers' films in which one of the lead characters turns around to the hotel manager and says to him, Tell me, have you stopped beating your wife yet, yes or no Now the manager is confused and doesn't know how to answer it...

Exercise the hypnotic gaze induction

So here is the procedure for the hypnotic gaze induction. Step 1 Go First The first step, as in any induction, is for you to go first. What do I mean to go first Well number one, you get to use the instant rapport technique in order to project feelings of goodwill and comfort and ease, because that is the kind of feelings you want the other person to have as they are going into a trance. Number two, you want to yourself begin to enter a trance state as well, where your mind is focused and your...

Information Sheet How To Destroy Resistance With Stories

When you look at the information sheet headed How to Destroy Resistance with Stories you will find a visual representation of each of these four levels. And we are going to discuss each one in turn so that you can understand it fully. So I would recommend you take out the information sheet, How to Destroy Resistance with Stories and look at it as we discuss each of the four levels of nested loops, because it will help you understand it a little more about the things and the structures that I am...

Agreement Tactic 3 The Yes

The next principle is something that many of you may be familiar with. It's called a 'yes-set'. In sales it's often called a yes-ladder. Remember that, whenever someone starts agreeing with you, they're more likely to continue agreeing with you, because you're activating the agreement part of their neurology. A way that you can use this is to begin making statements that people must agree with, because they're simple facts of life. They're simple truths. What kind of statements can you use for...

Precision Language Secret 3 Hypnotic Themes

The next category is really related to the hypnotic words. I call this hypnotic themes. Hypnotic words themselves were just the individual words which are packed with hypnotic meaning. A hypnotic theme is taking that to a wider context which is a general activity or an idea which has hypnotic characters built into it. You might be at the cinema, totally absorbed in the film that you are watching, going through the highs and lows, the emotional experiences of the characters. Have you been to the...

The next concept that I want to talk about is ambiguous messages

Now in the English language, there are many words that cover several meanings simultaneously. Let's take the word bank, for example. The minute you hear the word bank most people think about the bank you place your money in. But bank also means the bank by the side of a river, which is a very different kind of bank. There is also another kind of bank, which is a maneuver in an airplane we'll cover. So depending on where you are and what context you're in, the different types of bank will be the...

The PCAT formula to help people change

Now let us look at the first formula for creating a beneficial change in someone else. The formula is designed to be able to help a friend or a family member or a colleague when they're having a tough time to overcome a slump or something else that's limiting them in their life. You could use it to help motivate an employee or even a client that has difficulty making up his mind one way or another because of some mental confusion that's going on. One of the most beautiful things about the PCAT...

Breakdown of Comila demonstration

So let's break down that last process and find out all the things that are inside. Of course we were using the COMILA formula, and the first part was C stands for captivate. You have to captivate someone's attention. Now the way we did this here is again by running a yes set. A yes set kind of takes that problem and it says These are the problems you are facing. And because they are very much in the front of that person's mind, it tends to also captivate their attention. That is one of the...

Master Technique 18 Frame Control

Now remember, frame control is done basically by maintaining a frame, preframing things, reframing or deframing objections that come up along the way. All those four steps, preframing something, and maintaining that frame are the most important things that you can do. Special Technique Maintain your Frame Now remember, the art of maintaining your frame is all about being non-reactive, to have these impassive features where a challenge almost is unheard of, like it doesn't exist. To some extent...

Stealth tactic 2 redirect resistance

Now you've learned how to basically hijack someone's ability to resist you. I want to go beyond hijacking it and find how to actually utilize someone's resistance to actually help you to go the places you need to go in. You see, one of the problems about hijacking people's resistance using the law of reverse effect is that it creates a combative frame. It's very much you versus them. That can create all kinds of other difficulties later, one of which, as an example, might be just purely...

The piggy back induction laid out step by step

Okay, so here's what you do to use the piggyback induction. Piggy Back Induction Step 1 Make True Statements On a very simple level, you are going to start off by making three, four, maybe five physically verifiable statements about things inside their sensory experience. Something that they can see, something that they can hear, and something that they can feel. Piggy Back Induction Step 2 Add A Suggestion At the end of those three, four, or maybe five statements, you'll just use a simple...

Birdwhistell Study

There's an interesting study, by a Mr. Birdwhistell, in which he looked at the meaning of communication and tried to like break it down between the actual words, the tonalities, and the body language. Now whilst the words are still incredibly important, he discovered only about 7 of the actual meaning taken from a communication comes from the word itself. About 38 comes from the actual tonality (the way you say it). And as much as 55 comes from the nonverbal communication (the way that you hold...

How to use hypnotic stories

So how can we use stories to achieve hypnotic outcomes Well a story can achieve many different things. One of the basic uses of a story is to simply seed ideas or set frameworks of ideas. We'll talk about setting frames more fully on another CD. Of course, we've already covered the idea of seeding suggestions or themes in the earlier CDs. A very powerful way to use stories is to use trance themes in order to get people lulled into trances. Use Simple Stories About Trance Themes If you think...

Study On The Access State Principle

Consider this Back in the 1970's, there was a scientific study was carried out in which a whole bunch of students were given a bunch of nonsense syllables to memorise. Now, half of these students memorised them whilst stone cold sober the other half on the other hand, were given a couple of shots of alcohol beforehand, to get them just a little bit tipsy before they started learning these words. Then, at the end of the trial, they just waited a few hours to let those people who'd taken the...

Steps To Easily Create A Complete Set of Hypnotic Nested Loops

Creating A Loop Step 1 Begin With The End In Mind Now you are beginning to think that building a nested loop is a very linear process and very logical process. You start with a first story, tell a second story, create the third story, and each time you try to weave in all the various things--the embedded commands, the emotional content, et cetera, that you want. The thing is, though, the unconscious mind doesn't work that way. The unconscious mind works in a much more holistic way, which means...

How to install a post hypnotic suggestion

So how do you install a post-hypnotic suggestion The protocol we are about to cover is something taken directly from the words of Milton Erickson, and taught to me by my own mentors, John Overdorf and Julie Silverthorn. Remember that post-hypnotic suggestions require a state to activate their actual behavior. Post Hypnotic Suggestion Installation Step 1 Induce A Trance So begin with some sort of trance process. Post Hypnotic Suggestion Installation Step 2 Suggest Behavior Then come up with...

Level 4 the mastery level nested loop

With the mastery level of nested loops you can look at the whole thing in a number of different ways. One way to look at it is to follow the natural linear progression that we have been following so far for the basic, intermediate, and advanced nested groups. Now let's just add a few extra pieces to refine and polish the impact even further. The way you do this would be to add the conversation induction protocol into each of the stories. So if you go back to CD 8 called Conversational...

Master Technique 11 The Piggy Back Induction

And this piggyback induction is actually very important, it is actually the heart and soul of a conversational hypnosis interaction. Everything you need to know about the piggyback induction is contained on your Bonus CD 2, Advanced Secrets to Bypass Resistance. As I just mentioned, the piggyback induction becomes a second string to your lead guitar. And in essence what it does is create a counter melody, a counter tune which will back up and harmonize with the hypnotic gaze induction and the...

Stealth tactic 1 the law of reverse effect

So let's start off by looking at the law of reverse effect. The law of reverse effect is actually very powerful. Simply put, it states that the harder you try to do something, the more likely it is that you'll fail. So let's examine for a moment why this is the case. From a hypnotic point of view you might say that you have a conscious mind and an unconscious mind. Your conscious mind is designed to do certain things like enjoy experiences and make decisions. Your unconscious mind on the other...

Master Technique 1 Linguistic Bridges

The first level of step one is just very simply, your linguistic bridges. You are using language on its purest level. Step one is all about using the language and the first and simplest thing to master is the ability to present an unbroken flow of ideas. Now to do this, you just go to your linguistic bridges. You will learn all about these things again on CD 3, so go back to that and really master those things. The simplest way to master hypnotic language is to take out your hypnotic language...

Post hypnotic suggestions

Let's start by looking at the nitty-gritty. What is it you can actually do to get someone to do something for you, a simple behavior One of the simplest things you can do is a post-hypnotic suggestion. Now post-hypnotic suggestions are wonderful creatures. They are basically ways that you can use trance to suggest something which someone later on when they're outside of the trance will actually activate and actually act on. So that you don't have to be present as a hypnotist while suggesting...

How to refine the hypnotic gaze induction

So we have looked at the structure of the hypnotic gaze induction and by now you will have had a bit of experience with practicing it as well. You will have noticed, by the way, that the example I gave you is kind of half-ambiguous. In other words, it is half obvious and half not obvious that I am doing an induction. So it is a natural step forward from the Sixty Second Hypnotist, where it was totally obvious that I was doing a hypnotic induction. The question is, how can you take the hypnotic...

Master Technique 19 Use The Trance Formulas

At this point you start becoming very strategic in your thinking, very strategic in your way of communicating with people, because you start layering in the trance processes that actually get the results you're looking for. These trance processes will give your whole hypnotic interaction an even more polished structure. This polish is very important because it allows you to very carefully choose what you include and what you exclude. And by the way, this is very important. Just because you can...

An Overview Of How To Implant An Emotional Trigger In Someone

Well, the basic rules for implanting a hypnotic trigger in someone is to first of all follow the 4-stage protocol you learnt all the way back on CD 1. To refresh your memory, the 4-stage hypnotic protocol for conversation hypnosis is this 2. Bypass their critical thinking get rid of the guardian that holds onto the gate. 3. Activate an unconscious response any unconscious response is fine. 4. Take the response you activated unconsciously and utilise it, or lead it to a new direction. -This...

The next exercise is the instant power meditation

Now remember, the reason for doing this is to begin to sub-communicate signals of high status and authority. And every time you have a thought or feeling inside yourself, it leaks out of you -gets sub-communicated unconsciously - by changes in your physiology, in your behaviour etc. It's very important that you change your inside first, and allow that to express itself naturally on the outside. This is a way that you can go through the checklist of calmness, of pauses, etc. in a very natural...

Demonstration 60 second hypnotist

So here is the Sixty Second Hypnotist as an exercise. Find a quiet place where you can sit down and feel comfortable in, without any disturbances from the outside world. Now remember, what we are about to do is play a game ofLet's pretend. You are going to pretend to follow my instructions and pretend to go into a trance. What does it mean to go into a trance Well, you have to answer that. You have to make sure your face takes on the expression that someone in a trance has. Make sure you are...

Inter Loop Suggestions 1 Direct Suggestions

When you stop and think about it nobody knows his own capacities. The unconscious mind is brilliant, but we don't always listen. Every person has abilities not known to the self - their conscious selves -abilities that can be expressed in trance, memories, thoughts, feelings, sensations completely or partially forgotten by the conscious mind. Yet they are available to the unconscious mind and can be experienced within trance now or later whenever the unconscious is ready. And that is...

Youve come to the end of this Bonus CD entitled Conversational Hypnosis in Action The Super Hypnotic Storyteller

Now that you've had an experience of it, you can go back to CDs 10, 11, and 12 and finish the home study program. Although there's an additional CD called Top Secret Breaking the Hypnotic Storyteller Code, please don't listen to that CD until you've had a few days go by and at the very least had a chance to listen to CDs 10 and 11. That way some of the concepts there, which will be included on the bonus CD, will be more in your understanding. The best thing for you to do right now is for you to...

Breakdown of PCAT formula demonstration

So let's break down that trance process. Of course we are using the PCAT formula, so the first step was to activate the problem, to make the neurology activate it up. Well, we talked about the problem that you had. You have had that problem for quite some time. It has been weighing on your mind. And as you are doing this, of course, it begins to revivify, bring it back to life to a certain extent, inside their own neurology. Now for those of you who are quite sly, you will have noticed that we...

Close Loop 4 The Ram and The Wiser Ewe

So the wiser ewe called to the great lady and said I wish that my brother had a second chance She was wise in this because she knew that she could not wish her brothers troubles away herself 33. The ram heard her and, in a flash, understood he had one more chance. Instantly he wished I wish I had made the same wish as my sister and was happy instead of golden 34. As soon as he had made his wish, the ram began to transform. His wool started to grow back, but not with fine golden threads....

Explanation of the hypnotic gaze induction

You should feel like a real hypnotist now and that is because you are. You have put people into trances in just a few moments of your time. Now, relaxation and comfort and inducing those things are one thing. How do you start doing this How do you begin to alter people's realities in the context of a normal, everyday conversation You are in a normal conversation. You are talking to someone and decide, This would be a great time to use some of my Conversational Hypnosis patterns, - to achieve...

Hypnotic rapport

At this point, I want to address a very important hypnotic idea. This is going to take your rapport skills beyond the normal range. It's what I call 'Hypnotic Rapport'. Now, in some respects, hypnotic rapport has been around as long as human beings have, because there's a side-effect of trance. No one fully understands what it is yet, but we know that it happens, and we know that it's incredibly powerful. Basically, whenever someone goes into a trance around you, when they come back they'll...

Double Negation

The next confusional pattern is double negations or double negatives. The mind finds it very difficult to actually deal with negatives because negations don't actually exist in the real world. If I say to you, I don't have a car,. - the thing that you have to think about first is the car. Then you have to negate it and get rid of it. So if I tell you that I don't have a car that doesn't work,. - now you have to work twice as hard because there are two negations that you have to work in. But if...

Refinement 2 My Friend John Technique

A particularly useful technique for this is what is called the my friend John or my friend Jane technique. In this one you basically use all the same descriptions about hypnosis and what it feels like to go into a trance, etc. But instead of talking to the other person, you just describe to them the experience that your friend John or Jane had when he or she went to see a hypnotist, or when he or she was hypnotized by someone. And in that way, you create this weird sort of double reality, where...

Hypnotic Story 1 Use It To Deliver Embedded Suggestions

Well, stories can be used in many ways, and in my opinion one of the simplest and most powerful ways in stories is to use them as vehicles for embedded suggestions. Just think back to Milton Erickson, who discovered the idea of embedded suggestions. Remember how he would make dictations of complete nonsense words, but embed within it all kinds of suggestions for his secretary to lose the headache. Well, if you can embed it within nonsense words, why not embed it within stories, so that it...

BMIR stands for BMIR Behavioural Manifestation of an Internal Representation

That's basically a complex way of saying that every time you think about something, it will somehow show in the way you move, in the way you breathe, in your body language, and even in your tonality. So the easiest way to perform something is for you to go into the state of mind -to make the mental images, to speak to yourself in the tone of voice - that you want to deliver things in. So, for example, let us say you want to help someone to relax. The worst thing you can do is think of stressful...

Master Technique 16 Stacked Realities

Now also remember at this point you will also cover this idea of stacking realities or using multiple realities and this is one of the key things I want you to really practice on this step. Remember in order to stack a reality, you practice telling a story where there are many different people talking and each one is giving different quotes and different series of events. So you're never quite sure who's talking, who's saying what about whom. And a huge level of ambiguity as well as the large...

Hypnotic Warning

On the next track, I'm going to give you an example of how you can combine the language from your hypnotic language foundation on CD 3 together with the precision language that you just learned from this CD here. In order for me to make it more simple, let me use a simple hypnotic theme, the word relax. We're going to rift around that in order to bring in the various types of language softeners and hypnotic words and hypnotic themes. This is a hypnotic extract which means that if you are...

Bonus Handout Sheets On The Milton Model

For those of you who want to study his language further, the first thing I would recommend that you do is go to your bonus 'handout sheets', in which the entire 'Milton Model' has been condensed for you. And you can actually look at the patterns themselves, and study that, and actually begin to use them. The Milton Model Sheets are in Part 2 of the Appendix Whatever you do, however, please take the time to master this fundamental skill in hypnosis. If you can flow with these 'linguistic...

State inducing method 1 revivification questions

So, let's look at the first way of directing someone's internal experiences in order to actively insert an emotional state. We're going to do this by asking questions. This is called a 'revivification'. Revivification means bringing something back to life. Now, whenever you ask someone a question, in order to answer the question they have to go to the answer and experience it to a certain degree and experience it to a certain degree in order to know what the actual answer will be. If I ask you,...

Become A Natural Storyteller

Now, with experience, the first thing that will happen is you will have a stock of stories that you like telling. You will know them, you will rely on them, you can make them do different things, and you will pull them up over and over again because they are very useful. The second thing you will realize is that many of your best stories will come to you in a flash of inspiration, just completely out of the blue. You will be talking to someone and suddenly you're in the middle of a story, you...

Its called the seeding of ideas

Well, in the same way that a gardener would take a seed and plant it in the ground, and then water it and nurture it, and allow it to grow by itself, so an idea can be planted inside someone's mind - which you come back to time and time again, slowly nurturing it and growing it, until it becomes a fully-fledged suggestion. This is particularly useful at such times when the actual suggestion itself, the fully-fledged suggestion, would be too far out someone's comfort zone or reality or way of...

Directionalised Language

As we're beginning this CD on hypnotic language, let's begin with the end in mind. The end is to create an 'altered state of mind', in order to be able to use that to help people make changes, or to persuade and influence them to do certain things. Now, this 'altered state of mind' is a kind of special state of awareness, in which people focus on certain ideas or thoughts, to the exclusion of others. You see, there's an old adage that 'what you focus on exclusively becomes real'. In the world...

Emotional triggers

The next principle we need to address is that of emotional triggers. Emotional triggers were discovered at the turn of the first century, in about 1901 or 1902. A Russian researcher called Ivan Pavlov is most famous for discovering emotional triggers in what are called 'Pavlov's dogs'. You've probably already heard about them. In this experiment Dr. Pavlov would take dogs and offer them some food- but just before, he would shoot these food pellets down a tube into their mouths, he would ring a...

Rapport hooks

Now another advanced strategy for building rapport is what I call 'creating rapport hooks'. What you want to do is to get people to actually try and build rapport with you. And the harder they have to work to build rapport with you, the more that rapport will be worth to them, and the more they'll continue to work to maintain it later on. Now, how do you get people to work for rapport 'Rapport hooks' have been designed to get people to ask more questions, to come back to you over and over...

Breakdown of the nested loops

The first level for you to look at will be the actual stories contained within the Hypnotic Story Teller Induction. Now there are five different stories, five different loops that I embedded within that construct. The five stories are 1. The example of my hypnotizing people when I first learned hypnosis, 2. The Story of Jongleur--The Improvisational Theatre Workshop. 4. The Golden Ram and the Wise Ewe. And finally These are the five stories that have been embedded within the whole hypnotic...

Shock Surprise

The final category that I want to cover is the study of shock and surprise. Anytime you shock or surprise someone, you basically bounce the critical factor offline. It doesn't know what to do anymore and it creates a sudden kind of trance induction itself. In the old days, classical hypnosis would use this, for example, with the classic shock induction where you have someone dramatically yelling sleep' to someone as they come on stage. They might grab their hand and yank it a little bit and...

The 6 most common mistakes in building rapport continued

So let's look at what other mistakes people will typically make when trying to build rapport with others The 4th most common mistake is a lack of genuine interest. The thing about 'interest' is that, when you feel an interest inside and your focus is actually on the ideas that someone else is presenting, your whole body language changes. You begin to sub-communicate, at a very subtle level, signals of interest your pupil dilation will change, your level of focus will be changed, your movements...

End of Bonus CD1

So we've reached the end of the bonus material on this CD. I hope you've enjoyed the Stealth Tactics that we've outlined on this particular CD and that this bonus material really helps you to master the art of conversational hypnosis. It is an art form. But like any art form it has scientific principles behind it. As you practice each one of those, you'll find yourself really mastering the art itself. I hope that these are just some extra pieces for you to make mastering that art easier, more...

Persistence Tactic 4 The Law Of Compounding Effect

The final principle in this 'persistence tactics' toolkit you're building, is known as 'the law of compounding effect'. Now, this law is very similar to the 'yes-set'. And what it states is that, whenever someone actualises or acts out on a suggestion you've given them, they're more likely to act out the next one - they've become more suggestible. So the more you stack suggestions, one on top of the other, the more you 'piggyback suggestions' one on top of the other, the more suggestible that...

How to set an emotional trigger

So let's look in a bit more detail at how to actually set a trigger. Step 1 Use The 4 Stage Protocol The first stage of setting a trigger will be as we said before to use the 4-stage protocol to bypass critical thinking. You see, if there is too much conscious involvement, there will be a filter and a tendency to reject, possibly, your trigger before you set it. So you want to do this outside someone's awareness because that way it's more quickly and easily set. This does not mean you cannot...

Exercise

Exercise 3 is pretty much the same as 'Exercise 2'. Only this time you're going to expand your linguistic bridges beyond the '4 words of power'. To do this, simply turn to the back of your Conversational Hypnosis Manual, where you'll find 50-odd 'language bridge' cards, which will allow you to flow with language. The easiest way to use these is to just cut them out, and shuffle them into a random order. Then, make up an induction on the same theme - and remember relaxation, comfort and learning...

The 6 most common mistakes in building rapport

Let's have a look now at the 6 most common mistakes that people fall into when they try and build rapport with someone else. The very first thing that people do wrong is they try and be nice to people. Now, I'm not suggesting that you go out there and start being nasty to people or stop being nice. It's fine to be nice, but only to the extent that it doesn't break down your ability to share or communicate thoughts, ideas and feelings with someone else. The trouble with being nice is that...
