Here’s something interesting…
Hypnosis happens naturally all the time. Ever get into your car and arrive to a destination without remembering how you got there? That’s a perfect example of “natural hypnosis” at work. You were literally in a self-induced trance… and… your unconscious mind was “driving” the car for you.
I’m sure you’ve experienced something similar.
It’s nothing unusual. This occurs all the time. To all of us.
Keep in mind, Dr. Erickson used covert hypnosis (actually, he was a “semi-covert” hypnotist) techniques in many varied instances.
He used them to help people overcome fears and phobias. He used them to help the chronically ill ease their pain. And, of course, he used them to influence, ethically control and persuade others.
These techniques can be applied in any situation in life, work or personal relationships by…
Therapists… Health Professionals… Counselors… Salespeople/Consultants… Business Owners…Agents/Negotiators… Executives/Managers… Coaches… Parents/Teachers… Anyone!
But there are two big (very big) problems: (1) Unless you are a licensed doctor, dentist or psychologist you can’t access Dr. Erickson’s discoveries. And… (2) Even if you can get access good luck trying to learn it. Because he did not leave a step-by-step program teaching his techniques.
After a few years as a lawyer I decided that wasn’t really for me.
And I started working with corporations as a coach. In fact, several Fortune 500 companies hired me. In that environment, I had to figure out a “stealthy” undetectable way to make others accept my suggestions. Because you can’t just sit a corporate executive down and hypnotize them.
The covert hypnosis techniques I developed needed to work quickly at the unconscious level. And they did. I easily gained control, commanded attention and compelled compliance from anyone.
How did I develop these totally covert techniques?
Good question. The answer is I took everything I had discovered from Dr. Erickson… and… isolated the main principles he taught. That’s when I realized he was using semi-covert hypnosis on subjects. I wanted to use completely covert hypnosis.
By isolating the principles behind his techniques I knew what made them work. I then tested different ways to turn his semi-covert strategies into truly “under-the-conscious-radar” strategies. Ones you can use any time during normal conversations. Without being detected by the subject or bystanders.
Success at the corporate level led me to open a hypnotherapy clinic.
In private practice, I dealt with everything from relationship problems, smoking issues, weight loss, fears, phobias and just about anything else a therapist encounters. And again, my covert methods worked like a charm. I had finally learned how to use the forbidden secret of true covert hypnosis.
