Learn Conversational Hypnosis: How to Get Someone into Trance Just By Talking To Them.

Getting someone into trance just by talking isn't really all that hard.

Mostly because people are already in a trance state pretty much 24 hours a day, seven days  a week.

The question becomes...

Using Covert and Conversational Hypnosis...

How Do We Get Them Into The Trance We Need Them To Be In, So that they will do what we want?


What are the exact steps?

First and foremost, there are certain principles you must understand if you want to put someone in trance just by talking to them.

The Primary formula is as follows.

  • Attention
  • Engagement
  • Absorption
  • Focus

We’ll talk about attention in a minute.

To get engagement you need to get your subject Interested enough in what you are doing to actually want to Interact with you.

And ultimately interested enough in what you are saying That they become completely absorbed and narrowly focused on you and what you are saying in such a way that they naturally follow along without being distracted or splitting their attention on something else.

Another important aspect of conversational trancing is Knowing Your Outcome In Advance.

When trying to put someone in trance during conversation, you have to know exactly what it is you're trying to achieve.

You see not every trance state human beings go into is conducive for a specific objective.

For example,

If you're objective is one of inducing very strong positive or negative hallucinations that might require a trance with slightly different dynamics than say a trance you might use to attract or persuade someone to follow your lead or buy your product or service.

Of course depending on their natural level of susceptibility one trance might easily help you achieve both outcomes.

I hesitate to use the word susceptibility because it implies something outside of your control when in fact; hypnotic susceptibility is really based mostly on you the hypnotist.

What I mean by that is that in my experience, the level of hypnotic responsiveness in the subject on any given day is directly related to your own level of confidence and emotional state control.

So the more powerful you become in terms of your state-control and ability to modulate your internal emotional states more rapidly

The more easily and rapidly you will find yourself inducing the state suggestibility in everyone you meet.

But I digress, (to learn more about emotional state control be sure to check out our next STEALTH LIVE BOOTCAMP, because it’s the only place we teach this top secret skill)

Now getting back to our step-by-step process for getting people into trance during conversation. 

Attention: first and foremost you must get their attention

Now attention comes in two forms: Conscious and unconscious

Conscious Attention is Pretty Obvious. At least for most people. Start with eye contact. If you don’t have eye contact you don’t have their attention… period. Remember we don’t want part of their attention, we want all of it. You must create within them a state of in-distractibility - we call this narrowing focus of attention.

But unconscious attention is where you do something with your body and their body follows along

In my conversational hypnosis boot camps we teach a very Specific module and sub modules designed to unlock the ability your natural ability to entrain with another person’s nervous system that goes far beyond “classical rapport skills” commonly taught in NLP and Ericksonian Hypnosis.

The principles we teach are based on the laws of physics and verified by neuroscientists, so we know they are pretty darn unstoppable.

Rapport on this level is pre-conscious. But silently and invisibly changes their perceptions of the world literally forcing them to pay attention to what you are saying.

It's very powerful and it changes peoples mind from the Inside out. Unfortunately this particular skill is taught exclusively in our live events. But once you know how to do it. You become truly powerful in all forms of hypnosis.

To Get Attention -You need to zero in on something and create an opportunity to get them out of their

World and into yours.

You see most people are moving through the world with the direction of their attention focused inside. As a conversational hypnotist you can’t affect people whose attention is inside their heads. You need to bring them out so you can “engage” with them.

So the first thing we do is interrupt that state.

We need to interrupt the state - draw them out and get them Interacting - we need to get engagement with the subject


Once you have attention and engagement you facilitate absorption.

To facilitate absorption you must focus on something that the subject wants to interact with you about.  Using high levels of sensory based language – Visuals, Auditory, Kinesthetic, Olfactory and gustatory will enhance the sensory experience of subject and amplify absorption.

But the real power happens when You engage the emotions.

Anything that shifts emotional state tends to create absorption.

As engagement continues and absorption deepens, narrowing focus of attention is your next major step.

When you do this the filters between conscious and unconscious mind begin to disappear to become flimsier and thinner and thinner until eventually there is no filter between

The ability to amplify absorption and focus of attention in is largely dependent on your ability with language.

in other words, the more you know how to create powerful  neurologically-based influential speech that correctly stimulates a subjects nervous system and causing them to just get fully sucked in  to what you are saying and doing, the more easily and rapidly people will just start obeying your instructions.

Now, the other side of that coin is what you don’t see.

What you don’t see, and you don’t hear that will deeply impact your subject without them knowing it is the feelings you generate in your body and transmit pre-consciously , subliminally to another person.

So in a nutshell, there's  only three or four stages that you need to really focus on to get people into deep trance just by talking.

Let’s Review,

Attention: Their attention to get them out of their head and into the world

Engagement: You must facilitate communication. I.e. you must get them Interacting with you engaged with what you are doing and  the world you are creating. And you must do it in such a way that

Absorption: They Become Absorbed In The Experience With You.

And Finally…

Narrow Their Focus of Attention: Get them so absorbed in the world you’ve created that they literally are unable to pay attention to anything else.

Remember: All trance is merely a combination of Absorption in an experience combined with a narrowing focus attention.

To the degree that you can do that you can create any trance phenomenon you want and you can easily transition from one type of trance to another.

Back to the beginning: The kind of trance you need to induce is based on your outcome.

So once you know what your overall  outcome is you may need to back up a little bit or chunk down a  little bit and figure out… okay, in order for that ultimate  outcome to happen…

What has to happen first…

And for that to  happen what has to happen first…

etc, etc,

Just  keep backing up and backing  up from the end result to the beginning of the interaction so what you end up with is a series of benchmarks smaller sub-objectives within the overall flow of your interaction that you achieve one at a time and ultimately leads to your grand outcome.

This would be your overall trance strategy that tells you how to get  from Point A to point B.

Now That My Friend in a nutshell is how you induce  Trance during a conversation  and those are the exact steps you should use.

    Altho i feel it is important to understand fundamentally the mechanics of conversational hypnosis, what i really want to see is undercover live examples of it working on the street… ie like derren Brown russian scam.
    Why cant anyone just produce real life video clipage of conversational hypnosis in action, i situations which have easy and simple script, on evryday subjects, like buying a car, meeting girls, selling something, getting someone to move, getting a raise at work… all the usual suspect s we would like to use it on!

      Well Sanjiv, Maybe you are just incapable of going into trance? You could be superhuman. Or its quite possible something “else” is going on. What do you think?

      Absolutely, but the important thing to remember is that “covert hypnosis” and the specific “how to do it’s” are entirely dependent on the outcome or result you want to achieve. Therefore, tell me what you are trying to accomplish and I can better give you a method for getting there. With Covert Hypnosis “beyond the basic core curriculum we teach in CPI and KILLER INFLUENCE Especially. All applications of covert hypnosis require you to take multiple factors into account.

      Identity(s) – the personality types of the individual you are seeking to influence
      Intelligence – How much you know about them, their unique personal hotbuttons, cultural background, ideals and values
      Influence – The specific Tools of Influence ranging from your Overall Strategy, down through each discrete set of tactics and ultimately to the individual techniques themselves.

      Environment: you also have to take into account environmental factors, inside, outside, quiet vs noisy, constantly interrupted vs lots of one on one time etc.

      Context: social or professional, fun or business, family or strangers etc.

      These are all things a good “covert” hypnotist must take into account. in ADDITION to the Six Step Critical Path of Covert Hypnotic Influence.


      Give me more information and I’ll be happy to help you put together a strategy to accomplish it.

    These are all pretty simple steps indeed. If you know how to do them. What I want most of conversational hypnosis is to just succeed in every conversation with people that are just plain stupid and don’t do what is good for them. In other words… “stop drinking every fuckin’ day it’s not good for your family”, “break up with that guy he’s cheating on you every fucking day” , “don’t beat your wife it’s bad for your little daughter’s mental health”. Shit like that idiots don’t want to understand. It’s a living hell knowing you can help and change everyone but not knowing how exactly. Plus the benefits. I would fuck my hot teacher… just sain’. JK lol. Now.. I’m getting off topic again. Do you have any video materials that cover all that you said? I mean I would like to see these body movements that bring the attention to you. I used the 3 magic questions and they kinda worked. I’m trying to handle my state control but doing it physically is hard because sometimes the postures that I have to take seem to be awkward in the situation I’m in and need to cheer up someone. But, David you truly are amazing. Respect for the work you’ve done and share with the struggling people over the world.
    Your fan and student, Veselin.

    Now the “3 questions” make more sense. I think you can get it down to just 2 Since The first (place/location/mirroring(both vocal and physical)) both gets the attention and gets the engagement so that the “What are you passionate about?” Seems to jump straight to the emotion (fire hose). But I suppose if someone is reluctant the (for want of a better term) is more of the “fait accompli”

    Hi david first of all thanks for all these free videos. I have many issues I want to be able to accomplish. First and foremost I am a manufacturer of handmade natural bath and body products. I want people to return to conventional ways of looking after themselves. Whether it is what they wear on their body/skin or how they deal with any pain or illness. Many essential oils used in natural perfumery and bath and body products have healing effects on the body and mind. I would like to combine these methods of using the natural products and some sort of hypnosis. My second point is I need to combat stress. I tend to put on weight when I stress and I need a way to solve that, through hypnosis. My wife often gets pain in her hand from her arm to her tips of her fingers. I feel sorry for her she wakes up in the middle of the nights asking me to press her fingers. She has a lot of headach3s aswell. Can I help solve this through hypnosis? My kids have reached an age where they care disobedient and we often fight, is there a wzy with hypnosis that I can solve this issue?
    Thanks a lot

    Thank you for the emails and the clips available for free here on your site. I’m a disabled veteran from Desert Storm. I fight daily just to get the healthcare I need. The VA doesn’t want to help anyone. I broke my back in three places. I lost my husband in 2005 when our son was 12 years old. Luckily, I have a wonderful son who tries his best for being a caretaker for me. I live in Florida and cannot afford to fly and take your class. I started a non profit to help out other veterans, it was going great and now it’s in a lull. I make less a month than people on Medicare get, I’m in the gap between making enough to take care of everything and too much to be eligible for Medicaid. I’ve been denied 5 times for Social Security Disability. I’d love to talk with you about how I can get someone in a trance on the phone to make donations. Could you email me at cupcakesconfidential @ gmail .com?

    this type of skill seems like it would be very useful in a classroom. Students could learn a lot more if they were hypnotized into putting all of their attention to what the teacher teaches.
