Hypnosis, what is this thing???

What is hypnosis? Is it monoideism? If so, then why is it not needed to achieve the same results? Relaxation works just as well. There are 1000's of ways to induce trance, hypnagogia, somnambulism, or hypnotic-pseudo-sleep, the various states and degrees of compliance. But you don't even need to induce trance, or those other states, in order to achieve those same results. Knowing how the mind work, knowing the how authority effects the mind, confidently and boldly, being direct, setting up expectations, and using some creative conversation skills, can achieve the same results. If conversation works, then what about chitsva? Yes! It's been proven that pure chitsva works. With enough confidence, boldness, imagination, presence, charm, chitsva, and willpower, you can actually be the guy who pays for goods with a blank piece of paper. I used induced hypnoticpseudo-sleep once to create some fantastic hallucinations, for a willing yet unenthusiastic participant, yet the guy above, with sure chitsva, manifested a hallucination in his subject as well. But we don't use that in a clinical setting, do we? We could use a shock induction of some sort to get away without really paying. Though it might be fun to obverse such fun, doing so would be too obvious. Is hypnosis a process? Is it a state of mind? It is a degree of compliance? Is it what a skilled person can do with the mind, a collection of useful phenomena? To answer that, we must ask what these all have in common. They all make use of the same mind model I presented in the The Trinitarian Principle. They are likewise all a pattern of leader/follower, superior/subordinate and dominant/submissive relationships, mentioned in The Authoritarian Principle. Likewise again, they all use the same underlying hypnotic principles. Sure, you could pull out a gun, and order someone analgesic, but that would quite pointless. You could induce a hypnotic-pseudo-sleep state and tell them they're naked, and you could get slapped in the face for having done so. While both of these look like they should fit the model, neither of them do. While of course they are both the wrong thing to do, as they are both missing the Hypnotic Principle element.

Hypnosis is nothing other than the creative use of the power of authoritative suggestion. It's really that simple, as there is nothing more to hypnosis. Is it mind control? Yes and no. No, it's not some power you have over others. But rather, it is the power you give others, and other things, over you. Sure, there are many (alternative) methods one could use to attempt to steal control, but those require things like rapport, attention, cooperation, and trust, in order to work. Mind control is the authority (power) over your mind that you choose to give others. The choice is ultimately yours. No one has any control (authority) over you, that you don't give them. Mind you, as shown in The Trinitarian Principle, you're weakest defense is an unprotected subconscious mind. Unprotected, the subconscious mind can be covertly entertained, distracted or otherwise seduced into handing over the reigns. It can also be overtly bullied, tricked, coerced, shocked, misdirected, overwhelmed, relaxed, pressured, as well as into giving up control. However, No one can automatically, on a whim, thus and take possession (control) of your mind. The conscious mind, though naturally being anything but submissive, it's weakness is it's pride. And with it, the conscientious mind, which only submits to it's prime authority. These are what protect your subconscious mind. Although your conscious mind does sleep from time to time and can be lured/forced into a pseudo-sleep state, the conscientious mind never sleeps. However, be forewarned, that only by having a humble conscious mind, and having the the right prime authority, are you truly all that protected. This is why reading the Bible and having God as your prime authority is so very important. Otherwise, like it or not, you are already under the hypnotic mind control of someone.

These models are for perspective purposes only

Hypnosis has been viewed and defined by many as either a process, a mental state or both. My preferred perspective is to view/define hypnosis as a principle. Those that view hypnosis as a cause & effect process, see that a given process (ritual) produces a given result. This perspective hypnosis is largely scripted (AKA religious). The key here is to know which ritual to perform. A tenured hypnotist using this perspective will likely have memorized thousands of canned scripts but rather be able to make up impromptu scripts on the fly. The above viewpoint works for many hypnotists as they help their clients. But this cookiecutter approach doesn't work for every hypnotist, nor client. One hypnotist may read their script in a dry voice. Another may take an overly syrupy tact. Yet another may use overly authoritarian tones. In my opinion this approach is hollow and lacks spark. A hypnotist using this approach may need to see a client several times before the change-work sticks, if at all. With each visit the script would, of course, is often tweaked, compared to previous visits. There are also hypnotists that view hypnosis as a state of mind. In this approach, it's all about getting a person into the required mental state in order to have results. It is believed here that a client needs, for example, to be in a very deep pseudo-sleep state in order to manifest such things as amnesia, analgesia, hallucinations, alternative realities and so forth. However, in a waking-hypnosis state it is believed that we can only get catalepsy, arm levitation, and other minor tricks The idea here is to use methods, techniques, and approaches to place, keep, and bring the client in and out of a particular frame of mind. As both can appear identical to the observer, the real difference are the definitions and academic thoughts on what is hypnosis. The limitation of this perspective is the assumption of a reachable hypnotic state. Newbie and hobbyist hypnotists that follow everything they see on a Youtube video will find they are hit and miss as far as getting results. Perhaps this time they didn't yell SLEEP loud enough or didn't time it right. Perhaps they didn't take the subject deep enough, fast enough, and they popped right back out. It can also be that they are trying prove they can get a non-believer to forget his or her name, only to find their subject was only playing along. The subject looked like they were in the right state, so what happened? The assumptiveness is what happened.

Natural hypnosis
(By way of of principles)

My personal recommendation is to forgo mere scripts and elusive mental states, and, instead, use the principle approach. It is simple, easy to learn, feels natural and useful in virtually any situation Here are some of the benefits of the principle approach. Using the principle perspective there is: 1) little to learn 2) high likelihood of of success, even for beginners 3) you don't need to be a hypnotist to make use of it 4) you don't even need to call it hypnosis 5) You can keep using your techniques, methods and mental states, even your scripts, 6) You can be as overt or as covert as you need or desire 7) You can be as direct or indirect as the situation calls for 8) This approach is position independent (you can be an authority, peer or subordinate) 9) No need to differentiate between pseudo-sleep, waking hypnosis or conversational hypnosis. It works the same in all areas of expertise.

10) It's already unknowingly being used today by counselors, managers, motivational speakers, HR personnel, sales people, executives, parents, teachers and religious leaders, 11) You may find the hypnosis principle familiar as you yourself are likely already using it.
One the next slide are 15 examples of principles for use with hypnosis. Not only are they valuable principles for hypnotists of all types, following them will make you a natural. These all come from observations of hypnosis in the wild. These come from a lifetime of watching best friends influence each other, parents raising their children, managers managing their employees, public speakers wooing their audiences, motivational speakers giving away their secrets and watching many hypnotists perform, one after another. live and on Youtube.

Principle 1: Be virtuous. It's not important to merely appear trustworthy and believable, be trustworthy and believable. Principle 2) Have integrity. It is important to have the subject's best interest at heart. Principle 3) Model Excellence. Jesus was the perfect model, so model him. Principle 4) Be congruent. Have no internal conflicts. Principle 5) Actually care. Clients can tell if they are viewed merely a subjects Principle 6) Develop rapport. Seeing a friendly face beats an adversarial one. Indifference is even worse. Principle 7) Stay focused. If you want their complete attention, and you should, give them yours Principle 8) Think safety. Under hypnosis a client is vulnerable and their safety is completely in your hands. Principle 9) Think K.I.S.S. Keep it simple, silly. Simple is always better. The more complex you make it, the less likely you'll succeed. Principle 10) Have confidence. You don't have to be bossy to achieve results, you merely need to believe in what you are doing and believe you will achieve the expected results Principle 11) Create expectations. Tell your client what you want them to do and make sure they understand your directions. Principle 12) Project authority. This is not being bossy, but rather it is you letting your client know that can and should trust you. Principle 13) Take charge. Rather than wishfully hoping for compliance, expect it. Principle 14) No surprises. Tell them what you are going to do and do it. No more, no less and no deviations.

Principle 15) Leave them smiling. You always want your client feeling like something good, something special, happened.

The hypnosis principle: There is no such thing as hypnosis. Everything is hypnosis. There are no secrets to doing hypnosis. What we call hypnosis has been in principle around since humans existed. Hypnosis is the making use of the same relational structures and communication facilities each of us to influence, persuade, coerce or otherwise manipulate each other. Hypnosis is, simply put, effective communications. If you have established Rapport, Attention, Compliance and Trust, then you effectively have achieved hypnosis, at least enough to get you started. All that is left is to confidently set up expectations and follow through. If you can remember the RACT mnemonic, have a plan of action, and the confidence/chatsva to pull it off, then you can do hypnosis. Taking on this perspective you can turn hypnosis from a hobby or career to a lifestyle. Being a hypnotist goes from being something you do to something you are. It takes everything you know about hypnosis and applies to to your life. One the plus side, you don't have to change anything you do to do hypnosis. All this perspective does is remove the limits and barriers and allows you to use everything you know about hypnosis not only on the stage, street and clinic, but in the rest of your life as well. What else can you use hypnosis for? Virtually anything. Here are some known uses: Influence Persuasion

Is this an ad for conversational hypnosis? Not really. Yet this principle works there as well. The hypnosis principle is not about how you go about doing hypnosis. Rather instead it is all about how you live your life. How does this work? The fact is that, without given a reason to do otherwise, people naturally desire to meet expectations. But first you need to be a hypnotic authority in their life. The same people you find resistive to suggestion are the same people you would likewise find more difficult to influence on the street. You might be able to get them in the chair, you might be able to even get them under. You may even get an arm levitation or catalepsy. But successful change-work is likely to be difficult, often taking multiple sessions. If you are successful, it means it was something they were willing to change about their life, not that you are the bomb at hypnosis. Assuming you have already established rapport, keeping someone's attention is as simple as never leaving a client space to interact. Having successfully avoided giving them wiggle room, now draw their attention until you have it completely. Your clue here is to watch for the signs that they have ceased to resist and have completely dropped their defenses. All that is left for you to do is lay out your expectations for them and then expect them to follow through. The signs, while you may indeed have their complete attention, that their defenses are still up will be for the observant as plain as mud on an unwashed child's face. All you have to do is be observant. Only 7% of all of what we communicate is verbal. This leaves 93% (38% tone of voice + 55% body language) of what we communicate as being non-verbal. Just because you have verbal compliance does not mean you have complete compliance. Everything from word choices, tone of voice, attitude, facial expressions, posture and more all communicate way more than words can even fathom communicating. NLP instructors teach about matching and mirroring. The goal here is not to influence them to follow you but rather to watch if they, without prompting, are matching and mirroring you. If not, then you are not in the lead position. Does your client follow your non-verbal communication or do they act independent of your authority?
