Language Of Influence - Ericksonian Hypnotic Language Patterns

Human beings are bombarded with thousands of pieces of information per minute. The brain is able to process only a fraction of these stimuli. The rest is registered at the level of the subconscious (or other than conscious) mind. This information, even though all stored is not readily available to be accessed. For example, when asked why they reacted in a certain way, people will often respond that "they had a feeling" about something or someone, which led them to act in a particular way.

Why did they suddenly forget how to solve a math exam problem, which they could solve at home? Why did they feel a sudden attraction to someone, only to recall that a good friend used to wear the same perfume? Why do they repeatedly become fearful when confronted by authority? Why do they avoid conflict situations and never voice their opinion? Why do they feel the urge to shop compulsively, overeat or drink excessively?

The answers to these questions lie in the deep recesses of the other than conscious mind. To access information from the realm of other than conscious mind, Ericksonian hypnosis is particularly useful. Hypnosis is a powerful tool allowing us to access the realm of other than conscious mind.

Ericksonian hypnosis, when used with skill, allow us to change the patterns developed at the level of other than conscious mind, leading to a profound and lasting change in the way people respond in various situations, make decisions, and what strategies they employ to succeed or to fail. A repeated failure is a form of success. Failing at something is succeeding at not achieving the opposite.

There are many misconceptions about hypnosis. Some people believe hypnosis is dangerous as it allows the therapist manipulate a human being into uncontrolled behaviours. The fact is that humans are always in a state of trance, and hypnotists cannot "make" a person do anything a person does not wish to do. Do you remember watching a movie you really enjoyed? Listening to music you liked? Chances are you were paying attention to what you were watching or listening to and not noticing other things. You may not have noticed people talking in your vicinity, remembered what they were wearing, nor did you hear water dripping over the kitchen sink. You probably did not think of the problems at work. When you are focused on a task at hand, watching a movie, listening to music, reading a book or just daydreaming, you are in a trance. By the same token when you are thinking about problems, feeling stressed or depressed, you also are in a trance. Humans are always in one kind of a trance or another.

The question is what kind of a trance do we wish to be in? Hypnosis is a way of accessing the other than conscious mind, that part of you which does "the behind the scene thinking", drives your behaviour, runs your body, and contains all the resources needed to solve problems and achieve goals. It is at that level where we have developed patterns of thinking, emotions and behaviour.

Hypnosis has been proven scientifically to alleviate a wide range of problems including addictive behaviours, weight problems, low self esteem, phobias, anxiety and stress disorders, physical pain, eating disorders, a lack of motivation, sleeping problems and self sabotage patterns. It is also very useful to create states of motivation, confidence, calmness, and to enhance physical and academic performance.

Ericksonian Hypnosis training is one of the tools we offer at Live with Power NLP Seminars as part of the licensed Practitioner and Master Practitioner of NLP trainings.

It is an elegant, "permissive" model of hypnosis, utilising several powerful language patterns which are effective in eliciting change at the other than conscious level.
