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