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 suggestions for the new behavior.
Post Hypnotic Suggestion Installation Step 3: Induce Amnesia
The next step is to induce amnesia, and we will talk a little more about why that happens in a moment.
Post Hypnotic Suggestion Installation Step 4: Return To Trance The final step is to go back to general trance processes.
Now each of those stages is actually very important, because it creates the context in which the post-hypnotic suggestion can take effect.
The first step of creating trance actually sets the state in which a behavior can go through.
