Hypnosis is a mind technology, which includes self hypnosis or hypnotizing other people.
Self-hypnosis or auto-hypnosis is a form, process or result of hypnosis which is self-induced, and normally makes use of self-suggestion and hypnotizing other people means the practice of communicating with someone’s subconscious through informal language, body language and suggestion techniques – without them being aware basically using our mind technique on others for several reasons like relaxation of the other individual.
Hypnosis is a state of human consciousness involving focused attention and reduced peripheral awareness and an enhanced mental capacity and you should be aware of how it work!
During hypnosis, a person is said to have heightened focus and concentration. Hypnosis is normally preceded by a “hypnotic induction” technique.
Learning Hypnosis is not very easy, a person needs to be master at it. There are a large number of techniques and skills a person should know for hypnotizing others but some of them are really important.
The 8 essential skills a person should know properly to be a master in it:
1) Maintain eye contact for Hypnosis
While you hypnotize someone just make sure you maintain a constant eye contact without blinking. Eye contact gives more concentration and helps the person to get into a trance easily. To practice this technique you can stand in front of mirror trying to practice the technique of eye contact to yourself.
2) Build a Rapport –
Building a rapport is very important. When you hypnotize someone, you need to create a very light, comfortable rapport with the other person. So that the person could easily rely on you and share things with you. When we miss this skill, the individual starts feeling awkward and doesn’t let down his or her guard that easily.
3) Signal Recognition –
Signal recognition is the most useful and important skill a hypnotist should know. Signal recognition is simple, it is basically the ability to understand the things happening in hypnosis. That may be if the person is in the trance state or not? Or is the person comfortable and many more such things. Its the most useful skill.
Hypnosis is an art, we need to be perfect at all the skills to be a good hypnotist. Understanding and knowing hypnotic language is very important. As a hypnotist one should just use proper words and phrases . No negative sentences should be quoted. One should shape the conversation properly.
5) Authority Strategy –
Authority strategy is kind of allowing the person to understand you and trust you. So that you could just enter the subconscious mind of the other and interact with them. The client should be comfortable with you in the trance also.
6) Emotional Triggers –
As a hypnotist, you should just know how to trigger the emotional core of a person and how to understand it, i.e. learn how to notice and tap into their emotional needs. This skill is very essential.
7) Break down resistance –
The most important skill of a hypnotist is to know when and how will the client react to different situations . Break down resistance is breaking down the old and entering the new. Creating hypnotic trance that will allow your subjects to digest new ideas, perceptions and thoughts.
