Wondering if conversational hypnosis is real? Before getting into the world of hypnosis, we'll first clear up some definitions. Lets talk about what "hypnosis" IS. The technical definition is "to bypass the critial factor and establishment of acceptable selective thinking". What?! Lemme explain.
There's a part of the brain called the "critical factor". It prevents the subconcious from "listening" to crazy ideas/suggestions. For instance, if I said that raisins turn to coins when held, your "critical factor" part of the mind would take the info and compare it to the memories & experiences it had already stored earlier in life, and reject the statement. Conversational hypnosis is perfect for busting down the walls of the unconcious mind.
When induced into hypnosis, the "critical factor" is shut down. The 'suggestions' then travel directly to your unprotected subconcious mind. The suggestion is then considered at face value and believed (since the critical factor is "paralyzed"). You will then feel and act as if the suggestions you were given are absolutely true and real. However, breaking down the walls of the 'critical factor' is not every step that has to be taken. Very constructive conversational hypnosis also requires the hypnotist to direct the subject into a highly focused state of attention.
The ".establishment of acceptable selective thinking" is what we stated earlier about the technical definition of the word "hypnosis", remember? This is where that part of the definition becomes important and shown. Why 'acceptable'? Because an individual can not tell other human something so outregeous and it totally gets in the way of their CORE values with conversational hypnosis. Let me explain: if you're told to run over an old lady with your car on the highway, you won't do it if it goes against your core values in life. What would happen is you'd just 'snap out of it' or simply ignore the instruction altogether. Conversational hypnosis is extremely effective - just do not use it for unrealistic situations.
You may be wondering about the "conversational" part of conversational hypnosis. Well. If someone is becoming hypnotized by conversational hyposis, their 'critical factor' is bypassed just as in normal hypnosis, only their eyes are wide awake and fully concious.
So with conversational hypnosis the hypnotic suggestions are being applied without the subject's actual knowledge or realization of it actually happening! In other words, using conversational hypnosis is changing a person's belief system in a totally unconcious manner! The way this is set forth is by using a variety of non-verbal techniques along with some linguistic ones as well. For effective conversational hypnosis, there must also be some steps to be followed. They are outlined below.
Please keep in mind that you do not have to follow each step to the tee and some of the steps can be established sometimes instantaneously! Here's the list of things "to do" when using conversational hypnosis: 1.) Make sure to aquire your subject's attention - from there you must keep the attention throughout the rest of the 'induction'. For you (the hypnotist) to guide your subject into an open frame of mind, you'll need their attention so they'll be open to listening to your 'suggestions' when you perform the conversational hypnosis on them. 2.) You must have rapport with him/her! Rapport can be defined as a relationship, especially one of mutual trust or emotional affinity. Easily put, rapport is a feeling of connectiveness two people have for each other based on the quality conversation they may be having (while warming up with each other).
So having very nice rapport with someone BEFORE putting forth the hypnotic inductions is important. 3.) This is where the induction of the trance begins. Here is where you, the hypnotist, will use SPECIAL WORDS to put your subject into a hypnotic-like trance with their eyes open being fully concious.
Now, these hypnotic trance-like stages of mind are very commonly entered. As a matter of fact, human beings go into these states of mind all the time, every day, on their own! A quick example of this would be when an expert is talking to you about something you do not know anything about. Nothing he tells you would be critically questioned on something that's a new subject to us. Humans do not critically question things.
naturally! What happens most of the time is they take the new information and store it as the truth! Here's a great example: the news! Ever watched it? Hah! They, in general, take and support what is being told to them as being true and not question it very much. Can you see how this is making sense to you up until this point? 4.) Implement the suggestions. Here is where you 'program' your subject's subconcious mind with commands you'd like to stay there and be taken as the truth. There are SEVERAL ways of using conversational hypnosis in such ways that your subject does not realize these suggestions/commands are happening. This is where the true power of conversational hypnosis comes into play.

You now have the information needed to start looking into the powerful skill of conversational hypnosis! P.S. Are you thinking about how long the process takes? Well, that can greatly vary from person to person - client to client - hypnotist to hypnotist. There are many circumstances and factors to take into consideration.
At times a hypnotic trance can be put forth in seconds - literally. With the just the right mix of body language along with word tonality, someone can be put into a hypnotic state of mind very quickly. There's alot to the world of hypnosis, but as soon as you REALLY grasp a few key concepts to hypnosis overall, you'll realize the simplicity of it and begin applying it in your life for good!.
