We live in a very competitive world each and every day men and women all over the globe engage in many and varied fields of endeavor.
Lets face it we all want something but sometimes for some mysterious reason in spite of that desire....
We just can't seem to make it out of the gate, or worse and more commonly...
We start a project or new venture or idea only to lose our drive the further along we get.
So of course, this being a hypnosis blog. The Next Question Naturally Is...
Can hypnosis really help us build and keep our motivation.
The answer is a resounding yes.
Using the power of hypnosis we can build maintain and continue to increase your motivation to achieve what ever you want to.
And the best part is ...
There are many many ways we can begin using hypnosis to motivate ourselves and others quickly.
When we use hypnosis for self motivation the fastest and most common way is through what famous hypnotist Dick Sutphen likes to
call a mental movie.
To use the mental movie method we first need to several important pre-conditions in your mind.
Now the real truth is we only need two of these elements to pretty much get any change we want but for now and
especially if you are new to hypnosis.
- The fastest way to relax the body and focus the mind is through our breathing.
- use a steady inhalation and exhalation.
- Inhale in through your nose, out through your mouth in a smooth continuous and comfortable cycle. There are many breathing patterns you could use. Select the one that is most comfortable for you.
- Allow your mind to gently focus on the rhythm of your breath.
- As you continue to breath move your awareness to your eyes and specifically your eye lids.
- Focus your attention on the tiny muscles in your eyelids.
- and relax the to the point where they are so relaxed that you couldn't actually open them without putting more tension back into them.
- once you know you have them that relaxed systematically spread that relaxation from the top of your head to the tips of your toes.
In my system of hypnosis we call this the fast relax and it works great for getting people into a really deep state of hypnosis very quickly.
Once you have a nice full state of relaxation going; begin to think about what you want to achieve. Begin to imagine what it is like to actually have it.
Make a mental movie where you can see yourself winning your goal over and over again. Generate as much emotional energy as you can.
Become fully absorbed in the experience.
Absorption is the key to making mental movies work powerfully.
If you are not completely engaged in the event, then your unconscious mind is not fully engaged either and therefore
the messages you are trying to send it tend to meet more resistance..
Once you have absorption the step is to simply replay the mental movie over and over again until you know deep inside
that you've got it.
There is usually a very tangible noticeable shift when you hit the right number of repetitions that locks a suggestion
in to your unconscious mind.
In NLP we call this a "Convincer Strategy" and while an NLP practitioner would go to great lengths to "elicit"
a persons convincer strategy.
its not actually necessary when using hypnosis. All you really have to do is keep repeating the movie over an over again with
full engagement until YOU KNOW You've Got it.
The Mental movie technique is a great way to hypnotize yourself to become more motivated.
And while it can often also be used as part of a hypnotic process you can run with someone else. I find that there are actually better
and often more effective ways to motivate people using hypnosis.
Time Does Not Allow Me To Go Deeply into The Conversational Hypnosis Ways to increase motivation but I will briefly describe some of them
that we teach in both STEALTH Hypnosis, Killer Influence and Real World Hypnosis.
Conversational Hypnosis Method One - Emotional Hotbuttons
In NLP Terms We would call this criteria and values elicitation however, if you have little to no background in NLP. Those terms
may leave you at a loss.
So here is the brief understanding of Emotional Hotbuttons in a nutshell.
Everyone carries within them a personal "CheckList" of what is right and wrong for them. Each entry on the check list has two parts.
B. A check list that lets the person know when something matches or does
not match the label.
Every time the person encounters a person, event or set of circumstances that is a match to that checklist...
We feel a strong emotional desire for it.
We, in essence, become more motivated to obtain the object or experience that matches the
check list. Because that Object or focus of desire has Intense Emotional Value To Us.
Does that make sense?
If someone tells you they want more money and you ask them what is important about having more money.
They might say " I want more money so I can pay my bills, so I can keep a roof over my head and my childrens head and I'll know I'll never have
to worry about losing my home or having my stuff taken away.
now, without going too far into this process, we now know that the word money for this person means being able to pay bills, keeping a roof over
their head, and over their children's head,never having to worry about losing his home or having his stuff taken away.
As you can plainly see these are all "safety"or security oriented answers.
and are "Extremely Powerful" when dealing with and motivating the person you gave them to you.
The secret here is that if you wanted to motivate this person to take action on making more money. All you would have to do is speak to them
about how doing what you want or suggest will get them more money, so they can experience each of the things they described to you.
I'm painting very broad strokes because this technique is much better learned visually and auditorally and is covered much more indepth in our bonus video.
Emotional Hotbuttons Included in our STEALTH Hypnosis: Instant Conversational Hypnosis Crash Course.
Another great technique for hypnotically motivating people to want to do things they say they don't want to do is The "Criteria Lock" Technique we teach in
Killer Influence and Renegade Hypnosis.
The criteria lock is a method for completely bypassing "Resistance" To suggestion and causing people to actually want to do things they didn't want to do previously.
It works by first finding out exactly what possible emotional reason a person may have for wanting to do something they say they don't want to do, Then using a
very specific Formula which literally takes less than a minute, is completely covert and conversational but automatically reorients their thinking and causes
them to begin wanting to take the action they previously refused to do.
Its an amazing tactic and one I love teaching people but you do need some fundamental conversational hypnosis skills such as those we teach in STEALTH
to really make it cook.
There is also another aspect of motivation that almost no one ever talks about and you might have noticed me mentioning it a few times.
Its called Resistance. In future articles I'll discuss some very specific and powerful methods for literally bypassing any and all resistance to your hypnotic
They are called Omega Strategies and once you understand them you'll never have a hard time hypnotizing anyone again.
Nobody in the hypnosis world teaches Omega Strategies and yet they can dramatically increase the motivation of anyone when used properly.
That's it for today.
