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 do all of these things at the same time doesn't mean that you have to.
Ultimately, when you want to pull out all of the stops you'll use every one of the processes at the same time. But while you just want to get a certain result quickly and easily, you may just pick and choose each of the techniques or strategies you've come across so far and apply the one that seems the simplest way to get to where you want to go.
Now, when you do want to get some powerful results, using the various trance processes or trance formulas that we covered on CD 11 will really help you.
Special Technique: PCAT Formula For Personal Change
For example, the PCAT formula will help you create personal change in people.
PCAT formula fits very naturally into a normal conversation, because the very opening gambit, the problem part, activating the problem of someone else, tends to be the very thing that tends to come up in conversations and turn them sour.
So you're talking to a friend, for example, and they bring up some kind of bad topic, for example, they may have just lost their job or they didn't get a promotion. That in itself has already activated the problem. They have begun the PCAT formula for you.
And now it becomes easy to move from pacing the problem, trying to get a yes set, to confusion, accessing resources and transforming it.
Special Technique: Future Memories
Remember that another very powerful element here is to create future memories.
Put a memory in someone's mind about something that's going to happen in the future and the unconscious mind gets formatted, it creates the rut, the rituals, in which their tension their energy will flow into the future.
Special Technique: Post Hypnotic Suggestions
We've also covered their post hypnotic suggestions. And this is the time to really start pulling them out and practicing them as part of your general trance processes.
Begin to use trance as a way of inducing post hypnotic suggestions in people so their behaviors change over time as well.
You have the post hypnotic suggestion protocol on CD 11, so that you can use the trance, you induce a behavior, have some amnesia, then add trance and some self esteem suggestions again so that you have a nicely, tightly wound package in order to create behaviors and elicit those from other people.
Special Technique: The COMILA Formula To Motivate Action Finally, you also have the COMILA formula.
The post hypnotic suggestion protocol sits most naturally within the COMILA formula for creating behaviors and motivating change in someone.
How do you use the COMILA formula?
Finally, you must release that Action.
Special Technique: Find The Smallest First Step
You must release that action in a way that they can actually cope, so you have to have a simple action, a small step they can take in the direction that you want them to go in.
Now this final step is so important because you actually get to check how far you've come with conversational hypnosis.
By now you're ready for some very black and white thinking.
In other words, is your conversational hypnosis succeeding? Does it create the specific behavior that you want, or does it not?
It doesn't necessarily mean that you're not good at the conversational processes themselves, but if you're not creating the specific behavior that you want, or you haven't helped someone make a specific change inside themselves to overcome some problem or find a solution, then you'll know without a doubt that you have some more work to do to polish these formulas.
Now this is a process that you can spend the rest of your life continuing to refine, hone and fine tune.
The more you do it, the more you'll build a reputation of being a master of Jedi mind tricks, because no one else will quite understand how you can create change in people or how you can motivate behaviors so simply and so easily.
As soon as you can incorporate these trance processes fluidly into a normal conversational induction or conversational hypnosis interaction, you're ready to move on to the final step of mastery.
