The power of conversational hypnosis is profound.
Far beyond how most people think.
Invented by a doctor to help people.
He didn’t invent it in a vacuum.
He modified the ancient art of storytelling.
We listen to stories and are motivated.
With mass media storytelling, the stories have to hit a lot buttons that exist in a lot of people.
The common path to falling in love.
The common path to facing and overcoming obstacles.
The common path of navigating complex issues and coming out victorious.
This is why they say there are really only seven basic structures to any story.
And with these seven basic structures, you’ve got twelve basic archetypes.
But with these seven basic structures, and twelve basic archetypes, you can literally create MILLIONS of individual stories.
But what Erickson did, when he “invented” conversational hypnosis was to calibrate this to individual patients.
So he could tell them a highly calibrated, and highly specific story that would cure them of their problems.
This same type of thing can be used in sales, speeches, and getting people to fall in love.
Getting people to fall in love is kind of dangerous if you do it too quickly.
Having somebody you don’t really know fall in love with is VERY DANGEROUS.
One because you know nothing about them.
Could Be Dangerous
They might be a psychotic stalker.
But more dangerous is having a memory, that you’ll carry with you of BREAKING somebody’s heart.
This is kind of like in the movies, when one character is trying to get another character to NOT kill somebody.
They say that once you kill somebody, you carry that with you forever.
Breaking somebody’s heart, by getting them to fall in love with you WITHOUT reciprocating, is kind of like emotional murder.
Very hard to overcome from both sides.
But getting a qualified person to fall in love with you, while you are falling in love with them?
NOTHING is better.
But this requires something most people don’t have.
Something Erickson experienced as a child.
And that was he thought he was going to die.
He had polio, and heard his doctor tell his mom he might even die very soon.
So young Milton, as a child, had the experience of looking at the sun, and thinking:
“This might be the last sunset I see.”
But then, he didn’t die.
This is about as transformative of a process as any human can experience.
On the other side of that experience, he had a very rare, “life worth living.”
He explored places, become a doctor and literally EXPERIMENTED with all kinds of goofy ways to talk to people.
Most of us?
The best we can do is walk up nervously and say a few memorized lines.
Be Like Milton
Young Milton Erickson saw other humans as FUN experimental communication subjects to PLAY WITH.
You can develop this mindset.
This PLAYFUL mindset of having fun.
And start hypnotizing people.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
