Conversational hypnosis techniques and examples based on the Milton Model have been fine tuned and time tested. The true and positive nature of these techniques is overwhelming when you consider how life changing conversational hypnosis techniques and examples can be to just one individual and how that one change can effect many lives.
"The indirect suggestions used in conversational hypnosis are designed to mislead or confuse, and force you to think about what the indirect suggestion might mean, what the different possibilities are, and how it applies to you personally."
"The Milton Model suggests that indirect suggestion embedded in conversational hypnosis is more effective than direct suggestion. The Milton Model is a series of techniques used in conversational hypnosis, a way of putting someone into trance unnoticed as part of a normal conversation. This form of 'secret' indirect suggestion technique is known as the Milton Model. Conversational hypnosis often combines Milton Model hypnotic wording with Analogical Marking."
ADVANTAGES OF CONVERSATIONAL HYPNOSIS
"When doing conversational hypnosis the Milton Model is used to put hypnotic words into an indirect suggestion."
"A direct hypnotic suggestion is a specific instruction such as 'You will now go into a deep trance' or 'You are now a non-smoker'. An example of an indirect suggestion is: 'Sooner or later you'll find yourself wondering about going into a deep trance. And you may do that suddenly or gradually' - is it the 'wondering' or the 'going into trance' that you 'may do'? And while you are considering which it is, you mind is actually going into trance."
"Because hypnotic words are not exactly defined, during conversational hypnosis the client must stop and consider the meaning of those hypnotic words. This causes the client to search their subconscious mind to fill in the missing bits, or to decide how to apply the words to their own personal experience (known as atransderivational search)."
"Because the subconscious mind has to spend time thinking about many different possible meanings, it is much more likely that the client will find something in their past that fits, and will be more effective than a direct suggestion."
"In conversational hypnosis the Milton Model suggestions need a bit more work to prepare but have the advantage of avoiding resistance. Some people have such low self esteem that they will not accept direct suggestions such as...
'You deserve to be loved, you are respected and admired' but will accept an indirect suggestion in conversational hypnosis such as 'I wonder how aware you are that many people respect you, and admire you... and there are other people, many of them... who love you for who you are."
"The following examples of indirect hypnotic words and phrasing used in conversational hypnosis illustrate how the Milton Model of hypnotic suggestion is carried out. Each heading describes how conversational hypnosis works, and gives examples of that form of hypnotic wording as used in conversational hypnosis scripts."
"The therapist makes a statement that implies that one thing causes another, or states that one thing is true, therefore the next thing must be true. The statement may be untrue, or there may be no direct link between the one thing and the other."
You can identify an implied cause and effect statement by asking 'Does A really lead to B?'."
"This is where a Milton Model suggestion is given that one thing is the same as or equivalent to some other thing. It isn't that one thing causes another, but the implication that because one thing is true the other thing must be true."
"You can identify a complex equivalence by substituting 'is the same as' for the linking verb, whereas the word 'causes' does not fit.
