Becoming a Conversational Hypnotist is to go beyond average art and excel into masterpiece. In order to do this you must work on the parts of your masterpiece that truly make it a part of the world of art in Conversational Hypnosis.
In Conversational Hypnosis there are aspects that are very valuable and powerful that differ from that of other forms of hypnosis. Your mission will be to take what you have learned in being a hypnotist and refine the parts that will truly identify you as a Conversational Hypnotist.
It is important to master the language and use hypnotic themes to get your subject into trance. You will also want to perfect how and what type of atmosphere you will want to create for your listener. You must also master ways to create tension using authority strategies in order to put the unconscious mind into action.
Now you must add to and refine these skills as you learn them to make them more powerful and truly parts of Conversational Hypnosis. The first step in this area of refinement will be to add in the hypnotic gaze induction. This is one of the skills you will use to put a purpose behind the whole of your hypnosis. You have learned that it is very powerful and you should always keep that in mind.
The hypnotic gaze induction will also have you utilizing the 4 Stage Protocol. This is the concept that will add structure to your hypnosis. You will be making sure your listener has accomplished all four stages of the protocol in using the hypnotic gaze induction. It is critical that you are able to absorb attention, bypass critical factor, evoke an unconscious response and use that response to direct your listener into some sort of action. This will all add order and organization to the previous skills you have been mastering.
After you have perfected and know how to use the 4 Stage Protocol you will be using different techniques, such as the Sixty Second Hypnotist, to combine with your hypnotic gaze induction. Keep this simple by using rapport techniques and as you use your language with the hypnotic gaze induction you will start to see results.
In the hypnotic gaze induction you are going to want to focus in on several things. The first is to remember that the first part of the hypnotic gaze induction is that you need to hold your gaze. It is quite important that you are able to maintain a clear and calm gaze with the other person. You must not be or send any signals out that you are uncomfortable with the situation.
As long as you can hold a calm focused gaze you will be ready to move to the next step of this induction. The next step is to simply go into using your trance voice. Slow your rhythms and manner of speaking and adjust the tone and volume of your voice to become your trance voice.
After this you will want to work on focusing through the person you are working with. If you will remember you will start by looking into their eyes, then through their eyes to the back of their head, and finally at a spot somewhere three or four feet behind them. Give them the feeling you are looking deep within them, at their heart of matters, not just at their exterior.
Finally you will use the hypnotic gaze induction to explain the process of trance. You will elegantly describe the trance experience to your listener. As you do this you will incorporate the signal recognition skills you have learned to observe any trance signs and possibly include those in your speaking as well.
Next will be the refinement of the hypnotic gaze induction, once you have perfected all four steps in it you will want to start to make it more indirect. At first you will be using direct ways with the hypnotic gaze induction because it is simpler; but over time you will find that the indirect ways can be more powerful.
There are two specific ways that you can do this, both you have learned about previously. The first is the ‘my friend John’ or ‘my friend Jane’ techniques. In this concept you will use stories about different people you know or even fictional characters to convey a point or make indirect suggestions.
The second way to make the hypnotic gaze induction even more indirect is to use extended quotes. These are as easy as recalling information from articles, people, books and so on and so forth.
The reason this makes things more indirect is that it directs the attention away from the experience at hand in a way and has them focus on information taken from elsewhere, the information may still be relevant but you are directing their attention to the fact that you read it here or heard it there. It will make it much less obvious as to what you are doing, which is to use a very formal hypnotic induction on them.
Adding these few refinements should not be too difficult you have learned and practiced them all and now you are just adding them to your final work of art. Remember that these skills are what will help to set you apart from a hypnotist and give you the title in Conversational Hypnotism.
