Can Traditional Hypnosis Training Actually Make You A Bad Hypnotist?


Recently I have spent a lot of time reviewing the courses and evaluating the students of various Schools of thought and trainers within the hypnosis and nlp community.

After some recent experiences I came to the startling conclusion that ...

Are you ready for this...



No... I'm serious...


The folks who learn with us are "different" than the rest of the NLP and Hypnosis Crowd.

No thats not a brag nor is it a boast.

Its a fact.

Here at nlppower we spend a lot of time dealing with the real world. We spend a lot time teaching people that the essence of hypnotic influence does NOT lie in the words that we speak, nor the techniques we employ.

But rather the intention and identity we bring to the "Art" Thats one of the reasons why I created the 4 Magic Bullets Induction.

To teach our people that the magic of putting people into trance rapidly doesn't lie in any SCRIPT. That the keys to hypnosis and inducing trance lie in your ability to generate and maintain a intention to hypnotize and combine that intention with simple clear instructions to your subject.

Bundle that up with a strong sense of certainty in your identity as a powerful hypnotist, NLPer or what ever term you like to append to yourself, and you quickly become a virtual hypnotic juggernaut,. 9 out of 10 people will simply aquiesce to your suggestions and obey your instructions most of the time.

So how does that make us different in the NLPPOWER community as opposed to the rest of the hypnosis world.

Its all in how we introduce you to the discipline. You see the way you are introduced to something significantly colors the perceptions and beliefs you have about that subject. We present things that are "traditionally" thought of as being complex, difficult and challenging to do as fun, easy and basic.

Because of that particular frame, interestingly enough, our members do things many "traditionally trained folk" are hesitant to do.
I am not here to pass judgment on anyones teaching or school of thought. I just think that many hypnosis instructors and trainers should remember the Primacy effect and be sure that they "Frame" everything they teach in a way that causes the student to see what is being done as easy and simple.

Alas many instructors do the opposite.albeit unknowingly,

In my less than humble opinion the fastest way to get people confident is NOT to hand them a script, Nor is it to teach them fancy language patterns. Demo a short powerful rapid induction. Explain it. Then...

Have them do it to people over and over again as well as having it done to them.

The faster you get people into action, the more quickly they learn and assimilate. The longer you have them sitting listening to you lecture and or demo this and that... The more they go into note taker mode. Inertia sets in and it gets harder and harder for them to get off their butts, either due to fear, or laziness.

Get em, get em doing stuff. have them walk the walk before they talk the talk .(literally in this case)

Well its late and I've rambled on enough.

More Stuff To Come.
