Many people are intrigued by the idea of hypnosis and are really keen to acquire the knowledge. If you would like to learn hypnosis, you should start by studying the art of Conversational Hypnosis. Conversational Hypnosis is also generally known as Verbal Hypnosis or Indirect Hypnosis. It is the science of hypnotizing people by using the power of your words.
To perform covert hypnosis is not really difficult. You have to understand a few key fundamentals. To hypnotize someone, you must first gain their trust. To do so, you have to establish instant rapport. One hypnosis technique to build quick rapport is call “matching of words”. You begin by listening closely during a conversation. Listen carefully for words being repeated when the other person is talking. He may be using a lot of words such as “You know”, “Well”, “I see” etc. When it is your turn to talk, use the same words when you speak. The challenge is to be subtle and not to overdo it.
It is human nature to feel comfortable around people that act and talk like us. If “matching of words” is done correctly, you would have achieve a good level of rapport after a couple minute of chit chat. When the person you want to hypnotize is feeling at ease, his mental defenses are down.
An experienced hypnotist will recognize when the moment is right to start using powerful suggestive words. The idea is to slowly input suggestive messages into his subconscious mind. Our unconscious mind is just as powerful as our conscious mind. If you can influence the subconscious mind, you will be able to affect his thought process.
