Conversational Hypnosis

I’ve often been asked about how to use covert and conversational hypnosis surreptitiously for Influence and Persuasion without the targets knowledge.

In the Subconscious Skills programme (formerly the Svengali System) I go into the technique in much more detail, but the bottom line is really simple.

Hide it right out front and just do it.

Don’t expect full-blown trance, it’s too much trouble and you don’t need it. Go for a moment of distraction and or fascination which happens best when your targets are talking about emotive things.

Now some people claim if it isn’t trance you are not doing hypnosis it’s NLP.

The fact is that the workable stuff in NLP is hypnosis, that’s where NLP came from in the first place. NLP models hypnosis not the other way around. “Trance” is a by-product of hypnosis not the thing itself and real hypnotists have been using suggestion forever without trance.

In my experience that sort of hypnosis happens all the time. No, not when you are day dreaming or distracted, it’s when your subconscious takes over all together and it can be directed and steered there to the point that you just don’t consciously know it.

Momentous Moments

Creating what I call Momentous Moments, that’s moments when we pick up our beliefs which lead to our behaviours which lead to our perceptions…. creating those moments is very easy with a bit of practice.

You can create this simply by repetitive tapping at a level almost inaudible, or by using questions with a repetitive theme – that’s how advertising works. And then at the right moment pop in the suggestion – which is the true art of hypnosis anyway.

Is it that simple? Yes.

Is it hypnosis? If that’s your intent then yes.

Will it be covert? If they are not a hypnotist they won’t notice.

Will it sell more Coke? Of course it already does!

Is it ethical? Well everyone manipulates and controls, influences and persuades anyway so I guess that’s down to the intent behind how you use these skills.

If you want more of this then go to the Subconscious Skills programme in the hypnoarts training room.

Persuasion or Influence?

Persuasion or Influence…

You nearly always see these two together don’t you? I use them together because thanks to usage what they actually mean is lost behind what people think they mean.

The truth is that one is usually hard work and the other – well the other just happens.

Persuasion what does it mean?

Let’s take Persuasion to mean – using reasoned argument and supplying facts to create a change of thinking in the brain of the respondent, the person being persuaded.

The persuader has to convince them that whatever it is they are selling or promoting is the right thing and they need to cajole and urge.

Everything they do is pre-thought and done consciously and with deliberation. Which of course means you have to keep doing it because those persuaded to get what you have will soon lose interest if you stop ‘working’ on them.

To Influence

Influence however is a completely different beast.

People of real influence don’t have to ‘do’ anything. Influential people are just that. They don’t need to persuade because everything they are brings in people ready to accept their stuff and to ask to get more.

True an influential person can steer those who are in their influence but this happens easily and without effort. Yes this often uses persuasive language and facts and such, but it’s done from a position of acceptance rather than one of reticence, so you only need to do it once.

The silly thing is that it’s way harder to become a persuader than an influencer.

To persuade you need to get to as many people as possible and change their minds.

To become influential, you need to focus your Mind and message, and find ways of delivering that with enough energy for those who think like you, to find you.

I talk about the differences between Persuasion or Influence in my latest book ‘Subconscious Skills Success’ available everywhere in hardback, paperback and Kindle versions.


How do you catch a liar?


The Hypnotist shows you How To Catch A Liar

Eye accessing cues in NLP and micro expression and body language are supposed to be able to tell you how people are processing their thoughts.

As the Hypnotist I’ve experimented a lot with this and with what magicians call cold reading, here’s a fast way to catch a liar.

Actually Derren Brown blows the old eye accessing clues apart in his first book. It’s largely unproven rubbish. However what he gives you in place is worth gold. And I’m paraphrasing here.

‘What you need to watch for is Their Pattern’

So how do we set up a human lie detector without using hypnosis or NLP, with just simple observation? Read more How do you catch a liar?
