Learn Conversational Hypnosis - Master This with the "ABSAIL" Formula

Learn Conversational Hypnosis
Learn conversational hypnosis

Are you interested in mastering covert or conversational hypnosis?

If yes, then that's great!

Anybody can learn and master conversational hypnosis, but honestly it will require some hard work and skills. It won't be instant.

The reason is because conversational hypnosis involves dealing with a person’s sub conscious mind using casual language, gestures and suggestions. This is done while making sure that the person does not suspect the secret communication happening.

Here's an example.

Let’s say you are thinking to insist your partner to have Mexican meal as an alternative for Chinese food, or you want to get a specific client for your company. With the help of conversational hypnosis, you can achieve such targets. The best thing about this is that the hypnosis process can be learned pretty easily but only with the right amount of guidance.

What can you get from learning conversational hypnosis?

Well, here are some benefits you may gain:

  • Help others solve their problems
  • Convince your colleagues and boss to agree with your ideas
  • Make your spouse act much more generously and lovingly
  • Make your kids (including aggressive teens) follow your rules upon kind requests
  • Become a more influential and respected person
  • And more!

To learn conversational hypnosis techniques effectively and skillfully, you can apply the “ABSAIL Formula” from master hypnotist Igor Ledochowski.

What is ABSAIL?

Every letter stands for each step that is included in the whole process of learning conversational hypnosis. What the letters stand for is mentioned below:

A - Absorb Attention
B - Bypass the Critical Factor
S - State Charge
A - Augment
I - Intensify
L - Link to Action

Wondering how to apply this conversational hypnosis formula?

Read on to know better.

Absorb Attention


If you are thinking of convincing someone into something, then the very first thing you need to see is that whether they have your attention or not. The key is to make them get well what you want them to understand in your actions and your words as well.

Otherwise, even if you get their attention you won’t be able to hold it for long as they will be easily distracted due to your boring speech.

How can you get them to focus?

You can do that in plenty of ways. The very easy and known way to get their attention is by telling a story first.

This is the very method which teachers adopt for kindergarten students to get them attentive in class. As toddlers can keep their attention at one thing for less time, this is why teachers constantly do different things to keep them captivated.

If they don't get the kids' attention, then they might create fuss in the classroom. However, when the teacher tells a story, every kid in the class stops whatever they are doing and focus on the teacher.

Therefore, once you already get the attention, you can ultimately enter into the next step of the formula to learn...

Bypass the Critical Factor


Activities such as reading your favorite book, listening to your favorite music, watching movies, etc can free your mind from stressful thoughts and make you more relaxed.

When you are doing such activities, you are leaving all your worries behind. You are enjoying what you are watching, listening to, or reading.

This means that the conscious mind will not be able to involve in and judge.

As you get hooked into the scene and become interested, this makes you involved in the moment emotionally and physically which allows you to get everything you are reading, watching or listening.

That's how bypassing the critical factor works in conversational hypnosis.

Bypassing someone’s critical factor means that you involve them wholly into the situation so that convincing them will become easy. To get to this point, telling a story is the best option.

Thus, you have to dig a little deeper into their minds, get their attention and retain it.

State Change


In conversational hypnosis, it is necessary to change someone's mood.

Why?

Now think about this: Is it possible to sleep if you are anxious? Is it possible to persuade someone when s/he is gloomy? Is it easy to do?

Well, it certainly is not.

Therefore, that's why it is necessary to change one’s mood before you can influence someone. Usually, people who are mad and furious won’t just listen to a word anyone says.

Now here's the thing.

Generally, there are two reasons to use conversational hypnosis with someone: to make them start doing something, or to make them stop doing something

Therefore, your job is to help them get into the correct state of mind and mood so that they can achieve whatever their goal is.

Changing anyone’s state of mind can be done in various ways.

If you already get their attention at once using a story, then make sure that you retain their attention as well. You can make use of metaphors, pictures and anecdotes to get the person into the required state of mind.

Augment and Intensify


These last two steps are related to each other.

“Augment and intensify” is the point where you would have to argue and intensify the emotions of your subject.

If you are dealing with a smoker, then you have to start by making them feel how good their lives would be without smoking. To intensify their emotions, tell them about their healthy lungs, no more coughing, and how they will have much more energy for their daily routines.

You can also tell them that they will have more money to spend on other things rather than cigarettes. They will have more power, time and health to do their everyday activities. The end of smoking will be a new beginning for their lives.

Link to Action


Now this is the time when their emotions are high in the sky and they will automatically be imagining their new lives already. They will build up hope for themselves and will build up the urge to strive for it as well.

Therefore, this is the perfect time to tie those positive emotions to an action in accordance with the goals they want to achieve.

For example, if they want to lose weight, tie the positive emotions to actions such as going to the gym on the way home from work, giving up on fast food, eating more vegetables, etc.

Make sure that the actions will give them a sense of purpose and make them think “If I do this, I know I’ll be able to lose weight.”

But the difficult part comes when you would have to convince them to continue their hard work of quitting smoking as well. Not only for smoking but whatever the goal of the person is, you should persuade them to do the right thing by giving them new hope and letting them see the bright side of everything.

How's that?

If you would like to learn conversational hypnosis, then make sure you check out The Power of Conversational Hypnosis course by Igor Ledochowski. It's highly recommended!

Jeffrey Stephens - Master of Direct Method Hypnosis


Jeff Stephens was a really good hypnotist.

He passed away in December 2014, and many now remember him as a true master hypnotist and a great teacher.

As a hypnotist, he was known for his 15-minute therapy which he has developed himself. He also had conducted various successful hypnosis workshops, and his online hypnosis course "Hypnosis Mentor" is now still available.

Who was Jeffrey Stephens? What is his 15-minute therapy about?

First of all, I'd like to tell you more about Jeffrey Stephens.

Jeff got into hypnosis when he was just 12 years old, because his mother knew a hypnotist. In addition, there was also a popular TV show called "The Amazing Kreskin" (who started to become a famous mentalist in the 1970s) that influenced him very much.

At such a young age, Jeff already gathered his courage to practice hypnosis with his friends.

Well, long story short, Jeffrey Stephens had hypnotized thousands of people over the last 40 or so years and it got more and more exciting and enlightening for him.

Here's what Igor Ledochowski, another master hypnotist, said about Jeff:

"Jeff is a true master of the direct art of hypnosis. He has developed a stunning speed hypnosis system with which ANYONE can induce the deepest trance."

As what has been mentioned previously, Jeff developed effective hypnotherapy techniques to help his clients in just 15 to 20 minutes, such as losing weight in 15 minutes, stop smoking in 15 minutes, and curing insomnia in 15 minutes.

How to do this kind of therapy is also explained in his "Hypnosis Mentor" video course, which reveals 10 step process to create rapid, positive change in as little as 20 minutes or less.

Jeffrey Stephens' course includes 8 Online Video Training Modules accompanied with detailed Hypnosis Manual to give you all the scripts, bullet-points and also hypnosis techniques.

Self-Hypnosis Techniques

Illustration - Under Hypnosis (http://commons.wikimedia.org)


Self-hypnosis is a form of hypnotherapy, but you act as both the hypnotist and hypnotee.

Is it really possible to do that?

Of course, it is. James Braid (who coined the word “hypnotism”) once hypnotized himself to get rid of his rheumatic pain. Since then, he had been free of rheumatism.

In one of Igor Ledochowski’s workshops, there was even an attendee who said he had a tooth extraction, and he did not use any anesthetic to prevent bleeding. He only used self-hypnosis.

That proves that hypnotizing yourself can be a powerful way of utilizing your subconscious mind. However, there are some difficulties one may face when practicing self-hypnosis and one of them is this:

How can you be in trance while simultaneously giving suggestions to yourself?

This is generally the dilemma.

When you go to a hypnotherapist, it’s easier because you just hand over everything to the hypnotist. You just trust him and let him “mess with your mind”.

In self-hypnosis, you may record your voice, but then your conscious mind still interferes.

They key to overcome this problem is to exercise and practice often. Do not expect that after a few self-hypnosis sessions your problem will be gone. This is because the power of self-hypnosis lies in the frequent repetition

What is the best technique of self-hypnosis?

There are various self-hypnosis techniques you can apply, and here is one simple but powerful example you can immediately practice:

Betty Erickson Self Hypnosis Technique

Betty Erickson was the wife of Dr. Milton Erickson, a psychiatrist who specialized in hypnosis and family therapy. Here’s how to do the Betty Erickson self-hypnosis technique, a.k.a the 3-2-1 technique:

First, you need to sit in a comfortable chair and relax with your feet flat on the floor. Then, look for a spot above your eye level upon which to rest your eyes. Focus loosely and take in the whole room.

After that, do this 3-2-1 technique:

1. Notice 3 things you see
  • “I can see the tv set over there” 
  • “I can see the sunlight” 
  • “I can see …” 
(If you only see two things, for example, you can just repeat - it doesn’t matter)

2. Notice 3 things you hear
  • “I can hear the sound of nature” 
  • “I can hear … ” 
  • “I can hear … ” 
3. Notice 3 things you feel
  • “I can feel the warmth of the room ” 
  • “I can feel … ” 
  • “I can feel … ” 

After that, you do the same thing, but you only need to notice 2 things you see, hear, and feel. They can be the same things, it’s no problem at all.

1. Notice 2 things you see
2. Notice 2 things you hear
3. Notice 2 things you feel

Then, just notice 1 thing you see, hear, and feel.

1. Notice 1 thing you see
2. Notice 1 thing you hear
3. Notice 1 thing you feel

If you’ve done the set, do it again with your eyes closed ("I can see darkness", etc). When you’re in trance, you can give yourself suggestions. You can do this until you’re ready to come out of hypnosis.

If you want an example on how to do this, you can download this mp3:

http://www.ericksonian.info/Betty%20Erickson%20Special.mp3

What you’ll hear in this recording may be slightly different from what’s explained in this article, but it doesn’t matter. Just do what works best for you.

Magnetic Hands Self-Hypnosis Technique


Illustration - Hypnotist Jeffrey Stephens Using Magnetic Hands Induction

1. Position your hands 1 to 4 inches apart.
2. Rub your hands and feel the temperature building up.
3. Have your hands relaxed and bring them apart again
4. Notice the sensations - tingling, buzzing, etc
5. Imagine that there is a magnetic force between your hands
6. Feel the magnetic force, and let your hands closer together
7. When they move a few inches, you can close your eyes in trance
8. Continue with your affirmation and visualization

Self-Hypnosis – How to Hypnotize Yourself

SuperFantastic - Flickr
If you have something in you to change but don’t want to go to a hypnotherapist, whatever the reason is, no problem. You can always learn and practice self-hypnosis.

Self-hypnosis is a form of hypnotherapy when you put yourself in hypnosis with or without the help of sound recordings (CD, MP3, etc). While you don’t have to be a certified hypnotherapist, you definitely need to take your time and practice so you can master self-hypnosis because it is not easy to get over your subconscious mind.

But once you can do it, you can give a wide variety of suggestions to the subconscious mind such as to increase motivation, reduce physical pain, set goals, eliminate bad habits, increase creativity, and many more.

How can you hypnotize yourself?

If you have the right attitude, patience and practice regularly, you can definitely hypnotize yourself. There are various books and courses on self-hypnosis, such as The Power of Self-Hypnosis For Guaranteed Results Home Study Program, if you want to learn from the masters the right way to get hypnotized and achieve your desired results. But don’t worry; you can also learn to do it by yourself as it is not rocket science.

Master hypnotist Igor Ledochowski says that you will have to do these steps to hypnotize yourself:

1. Go into a hypnotic trance

What is trance? It is basically just focusing yourself on just one thing. It is about attentional focus, and it is also about relaxing and feeling good.

2. Have the right attitude

To get your desired results, you will need the right attitude: don’t be in a hurry, take your time, just trust your subconscious mind.

3. Know that everything is going to work out well

To be able to give suggestions to your subconscious mind, you will need to:

1. Have a convincer

With a convincer, you’ll be able to find out whether you’re in hypnosis or not. With this, you’ll know that your mind is in the perfect state.

2. Affirm

Give simple statements to the subconscious mind

3. Visualize

Create a mental picture to create experience

4. Drift

Just let the mind drift easily and effortlessly

Remember, you may not get immediate results with just one session of self-hypnosis. However, in the long run you will start noticing changes. Self-hypnosis is all about positive thoughts and feelings. If you have more serious problems that you can’t handle by yourself, I recommend you go to a qualified hypnotherapist.

If you eventually decide to choose a hypnotherapist, make sure to check whether the person has a good track record to bring about positive changes in his/her clients.

Hypnosis and the Power of Your Subconscious Mind

Do you want to be happy?

Your mind is your key to create happiness. You may be wondering, what can the mind, especially the subconscious mind, do? What are the positive results that you can get from using the power of subconscious mind?

There are many, many things you can do if you know how to take advantage of the treasure that lies within you, hypnotist Igor Ledochowski also refers to it as your “hidden goldmine”, which is your subconscious mind. Some of the things you can achieve are:

  1. Increasing physical health and even, within God’s will, healing the body from many common diseases
  2. Increasing self confidence
  3. Learning faster and better
  4. Getting rid of fears and phobias
  5. Strengthening ties with family members, friends and co-workers 
  6. Stopping bad habits, and many more.

Imagine that your mind is a garden and you are the gardener. You continuously sow seeds, which are ideas or thoughts throughout the day. If you sow hatred and evil, you will not be able to reap peace and happiness. If you sow the thoughts that money is evil, you will never get rich.

Therefore, be careful of what you think.

If you know how to program your subconscious mind, you can change your life. Maybe you can’t change the world, but you can always change your mind and what is within you to be a better person.

There’s another analogy of how the conscious and subconscious minds work.

The conscious mind is like the navigator and captain of a big ship, while the subconscious mind is like the crews of the ship.

The conscious mind analyzes the things you see and hear, and this includes logical thinking and analytical thinking. As the captain of the ship, it gives orders to the ship's crews based on the analysis.

The subconscious mind is responsible for involuntary activities, including breathing and changing heart rate. It is also responsible for storing memories, habits, and beliefs. Your subconscious mind is responsible for about 90% (some say more) of what you do.

Just like the ship’s crews, the subconscious mind only follows the captain’s (conscious mind) orders, so how the captain give instructions is important. Therefore, how the conscious mind communicates with the subconscious mind can change, erase, or strengthen existing ideas.

The crews of the ship are also responsible for various important things, such as cooking foods, cleaning the ship, doing the job in the engine room, etc. The captain doesn't do all of those things, they are done by the crews. There is only one captain, but there are hundreds of crews.

You have the power of the subconscious mind, but you need to know how to communicate better with it so you can activate the force to achieve the results you want.

If you are wondering how to do it, hypnosis is the answer.

You see, the mind has this thing called the “critical factor”. It acts just like a guard: it will not let every idea go into the subconscious mind. It filters the ideas from your subconscious mind.

That’s why traditional technique like affirmation often doesn't work.

If you keep affirming “I am happy, I am happy, I am happy!”, the guard in your mind will say “Really? How can I be happy? No, I’m not happy. I am broke and my life is miserable.”

With hypnosis, you can turn the critical factor (the guard) off to accept new ideas that can make you be a better person. You can communicate with the subconscious mind to do whatever things you want.
