Hypnosis is a very powerful set of tools, both over and covert.
Covert hypnosis, of course, is when you’re using the various strategies and patterns during a regular conversation.
While it’s fairly straightforward to “memorize” some patterns of overt communication, or “inductions” as they’re called, it’s not so simple to learn covert hypnosis like this.
The main reason is that if you’re using overt hypnosis, the person knows you’re using it, and they’re going to sit there and listen to you.
Kind of like memorizing a speech vs. developing real world conversational skills.
One you can practice in front of the mirror, and the other you need other people.
There are a lot of similarities between learning covert hypnosis and learning a foreign language.
Both take time learning the bits and pieces, and both take practice with real people.
And just like it would feel strange walking to a native speaker of your new target language and asking them to help you “practice,” it would kind of feel weird walking up to a stranger and asking them to help you practice hypnosis.
Sure, you can practice in seminars, but that’s kind of like language class, where you pair off with other students and practice saying things like:
“El Senior comio uvas.”
Feels good in class, but it’s not really “real.”
The only way to get good at a foreign language is to immerse yourself in a situation where you’re forced to use it.
You can look at the skills of covert hypnosis the same way.
The only way to really get good at it is to use it in real world conversations, as often as possible.
And just like learning a foreign language, you’ll rarely get to the point where you feel you’re “fluent.”
You’ll always realize there’s more to learn, more skills to develop, and more opportunities to take advantage of.
Luckily, you can practice these skills anywhere, any time. Just choose an intention to point your mind toward, and move forward.
