Are we Aware of our Subconscious?


Jonathan Chase answers questions on Quora

Q: Do you think one of the things stopping people from being better, is being unaware of their subconscious, and if so why?

A: You are very Aware of your subconscious process, at least of the results of it. And you can understand that process better and use it.

I prefer to use the words Brain and Mind when thinking of the two major thinking and responding processes.

Although I also like the terms Imagination and Intellect which Emile Coué used in his 1921 book ‘Self-Mastery Through Conscious Autosuggestion’.

With the emotional maturity of a pre-pubescent person – roughly 9 to ten years old, it’s best to think of the Subconscious as something to deliberately, [consciously] collaborate with, rather than control.

Of course that isn’t actually what’s happening, not neurologically anyway. But it’s a good model to use and seems to work best in real world situations.

Your subconscious is wired to respond

You can, using psychometrics, get a handle on how your subconscious is wired to respond, and then predict to a degree likely behaviours and tendencies, what we call Talents.

5 Emotional Tools of Influence

5 emotional tools of influence Jonathan Chase the hypnotist

Emotional Tools of Influence

Hey Jonathan Chase here,

In the manual of my online training of the hypnotic Influence Subconscious Skills, I show you how to utilise the five most influential drives: and because it’s your natural drives you are using to influence, this is an easy and powerful education.


Compliance is the desire to be the same; socially accepted by our peers. It’s one of our biggest drives to be in with the IN crowd, to comply with society, to be part of the gang.

That’s exactly how gangs work. It’s how tribes work. It’s how groups of business people work. Sometimes it’s even how families work, although nowadays that’s not as true. . .  is it?

Actually it’s even more like that now. The desire to be the same, to be socially accepted by peers, is a very strong driving force in our society.

It’s an emotional tool that you can use, because they want to be the same.
Think Clubs, Gangs, Cults…


The desire to win, the desire to feel that you have achieved . . . something. The desire to feel that you’ve got somewhere, you’ve achieved your goal, you’ve become successful.

How can you use achievement? Just make them feel that they’ve won!


The desire to be known. This is certainly a driver of mine!

I have the desire to be known throughout the world as one of the world’s greatest teacher’s of Hypnotic Subconscious Influence.  I think I already am, and lots of other people do (and by making a joke of it by the way, I’m deeply embedding that into your subconscious mind, but don’t worry. Don’t worry about that because your subconscious mind won’t notice, and your conscious mind can’t stop me).


Importance is actually the desire to be of value, to be significant, to feel important.

When I was nursing I worked with a lot of paraplegics and quadriplegics with spinal injuries. When I had really helped somebody achieve something, learn something new, like getting out of the wheelchair on their own or something like that, I would go home with a deep feeling of fulfilment and satisfaction. I had a deep feeling of importance and significance. I had been significant in somebody’s life.

I get that a lot in what I do now. I feel of value and significance toward people – and I am because I’m good at what I do!


The desire to receive what one deserves. The desire to get people to say to me, “That was so good. Here’s this.” Getting their token of appreciation, which in our society is usually money, and because I’m so good I get to see quite a bit of that, which is great! That’s fabulous, and I’m really, really grateful for it.

And even though I’m doing this, “I’m so good at what I do I can implant it into your mind”,  I’m doing it blatantly, openly, and you’re even beginning to notice it now because I’m pushing it further in front than I did before, it doesn’t matter, because it’s still working.

It’s still going into your head. And it’s going into your head, and it’s going into your subconscious mind, and it’s going into your special place, and it’s going into your receptacle, and it’s becoming a part of you.

When you think of me, you fire those attachments, you fire those emotions. You have no choice!

You just don’t have any choice. You have no choice. Repetition works so incredibly well!”

Leader? Are you a hypnotist?

Leader? are you a hypnotist? Jonathan Chase Hypnotist #subconsciousskills

If you’re a leader you could be a hypnotist, you just didn’t know it.

Let me show you very simplified approach to getting people to feel good when doing the mundane, and then do it better.

Hypnosis is the intentional implanting of ideas at a subconscious level giving rise to changed behaviours in the recipient.

If you lead you should be influencing behaviours because it’s only when the non-conscious process takes onboard an idea, and runs unquestioningly with it, that we get what NLP practitioners call unconscious competence.

For clarity lets call that a habit. And it’s only when behaviours become habitual that we get the competence which leads to the satisfaction in being able to complete tasks imaginatively, with ease, and with recognition and most importantly. . .

Get the real reward of feeling good emotionally = happy, which we call success.

People are naturally accepting of the subconscious language patterns we might call suggestion, especially when they are being creative, imaginative, passionate and emotional, and it’s then we can suggest the reward for being successful.

On stage for instance the Hypnotist will tell people constantly how good they are doing.

They will congratulate their guests on stage and encourage compliance by offering an emotive reward, “The better you do this, the better you feel.”

That’s a direct subconscious communication or suggestion.

No, it’s not conversational or covert hypnosis, certainly not embedded language patterning or neurolinguistic programming gobbledegook.

No true leader needs that rubbish to help their teams, employees, customers, followers, feel better about themselves, their job or the boss.

All you need to do is direct subconscious language directly at the emotional imaginative mental process we call the Subconscious, and attach a feel good to it, as all charismatic and influential people do, they are Hypnotists, even if they don’t know it.

Try this:

Next time you see a team member, or a friend or someone in the family for that matter, do something that makes them feel good, say something that you naturally feel is right with the intention to fire that feeling again.

And, as my friend and persuasion expert Tom Vizzini would point out, do not go for a huge over the top obvious excitement or joy, watch for a simple starting smile and attach to that.

Later, at a time when the same person is doing you want or need them to feel good about, but they are pretty much emotionally neutral about; fire the feel good attachment trigger or anchor.

Now trust me on this, there are no particular words or phrases, body language or gestures, that will give you control over their mind here, well there are, but the length of a blog isn’t the place to show you how to get those.

So it could be anything, something you’d say off hand or even something that feels right but doesn’t make sense.

After you’ve attached or anchored your trigger – in Subconscious Skills we prefer attached because it’s way more flexible – then. . .

“With very little effort you can help people get an habitual feel good mood over boredom.”

Every year I watch company Business Owners, Team Leaders, Trainers and CEOs learn to use subconscious skills and discover how, without complex and convoluted language and story telling, they can lead and influence their colleagues, co-workers and service teams to get and give them the max.

I’m a Freelancer professional influence advisor that allows me a clear vision helping people who motivate, manipulate and move others, get the communication and performance edge skills you need to keep your momentum going.

Let’s cut to the chase and talk.

We don’t just coach, we, that’s with my partner Jane Bregazzi, act as catalysts and facilitate your focused future helping you to think differently.

Why Midlife? 45 and above?

Our major time of transition mostly occurs when we recognise our mortality and start thinking of long term legacy.

That time where we need to train others to grow into their own power positions.

Most people who suffer stress, even burnout, hit it here due to top of the tree tension needing a strategy to harness and control pressures.

Serious as a leader? Then up your game because better performance lowers stress.
