Conversational hypnosis can be a powerful tool for influencing the actions and behaviors of others if it is done correctly. Many programs and courses exist online and in physical classrooms led by professional hypnotists to train people interested in learning how to do conversational hypnosis. While it takes a lot of learning and studying the methods and techniques of conversational hypnosis, it is a skill that can be learned by nearly anyone in any walk of life.
The first steps to mastering conversational hypnosis involve learning about different personality types and different people. This will help you understand more about the listener in each conversation and how to predict their future behaviors. This will also help you gauge each person’s receptiveness to being hypnotized early on in a conversation, and also make a psychological connection with them based on the words that you are saying and the feeling you are giving that listener.
The next steps in learning conversational hypnosis are to study verbal and non-verbal communication methods. This involves the fields of body language and gesturing, as well as learning how to use words to your advantage in many different scenarios and situations. Through courses and training programs, you will learn how to manipulate communication and human behavior using these verbal and non-verbal communication skills. These forms of communication will become natural after much practice and studying, leading you to become comfortable and confident when speaking to an audience and using conversational hypnosis. The verbal and non-verbal communications skills that are built up allow anyone to speak to someone and get the other person into a slight hypnotic state. Once in this state, it is easy to access the subconscious mind through communication and trigger certain wanted actions and responses.
One of the keys to conversational hypnosis is that the listener cannot feel as if they are being hypnotized, and cannot know that the speaker is practicing conversational hypnosis. Because of the stealth involved in conversational hypnosis, it is often referred to as covert hypnosis. Conversational hypnosis involves the hypnotist listening and responding to others in a manner that is normal and appropriate for each and every situation. The hypnotic element comes into play with the pre-selected and learned verbal and non-verbal triggers.
In its most basic form, conversational hypnosis forces the listener to make certain connections in their mind that the speaker has control of through learned communication skills. For example, if the speaker were to say, “Do not think about a white bear,” the listener would basically have no choice but to think of white bear. This occurs because the mind of the listener has to process the information it has received. The listener forms an image in their mind of a white bear before they even have a chance to respond to the speaker. This very simple example shows how a few simple words can make their way into another’s mind and influence their thoughts. Masters of conversational hypnosis have many methods and techniques that are far more advanced than this example shows for dealing with practically anyone and using conversational hypnosis successfully to influence others.
Anyone with a desire to learn the methods and techniques of conversational hypnosis can develop the necessary skills to be able to influence others and control how people listening to them respond in many different scenarios. The best way to learn conversational hypnosis is to enroll in a program or download a course online and begin studying human behavior, verbal and non-verbal communication, words that trigger responses, body language and gestures. When all of these elements are put together in a conversation, it becomes possible to influence almost anyone using conversational hypnosis.
