I went to a free sales seminar a couple weeks ago.
It was pretty basic stuff, but it was also pretty useful.
The first half all we did were these fairly straightforward rapport exercises.
Rapport is extremely important, but it’s also kind of dangerous.
Easy To Forget
Dangerous because it’s easy to understand, and learn, and talk about, which means it’s easy to forget.
But if you don’t create and maintain rapport, you can’t persuade anybody to do anything.
And the deeper you create rapport, the easier it will be to have any conversation.
There was this one weird guy that had this really crazy skill.
There are some people who can listen to you speak and finish your sentences.
This guy could say what you were thinking, but he would say it as you were saying it.
It was like this guy could read your thoughts exactly.
This guy knows exactly what’s going on in your mind.
Surface vs. Deep
We did another exercise in another time and place that was a much more powerful, and much more subconscious example of rapport.
The second night after the seminar we were hanging out in the hotel lobby, having some drinks.
This lady told us she was a professional psychic.
But being a psychic, being able to read minds and control other people’s thinking had nothing to do with paranormal powers.
Being Psychic Is Easy
It was all about rapport.
Your thoughts are connected to your brain, which is connected to your body.
The process is simple.
First turn off your mind completely.
Empty your brain completely, so it is an open and pure vessel.
Then get into deep rapport with somebody, anybody.
Your Thoughts – My Thoughts
Once you are in rapport, your mind will have their thoughts.
Kind of like a membrane between two wave tables.
The waves in one will create the waves in the other.
Through the membrane.
Your mind is the wave table.
Body Language Membrane
The rapport is the membrane.
And once you create following mental rapport, you can shift to leading mental rapport.
It takes practice, but you can lead their thoughts.
What you think, they’ll think.
What you want, they’ll want.
What you crave, they’ll crave.
She demonstrated this to us, over and over and over.
We would pick somebody across the street.
And tell her what we wanted her to think.
She would implant that thought into her mind.
Proof From The Brain
And then she would come in and talk to us, and demonstrate this.
She said hardest part is emptying your mind.
That most people have too many worries and anxieties and stresses.
But if you can manage to empty your mind, that’s the hardest part.
Emptying Is The Hardest
If you can do that, then implanting thoughts is the next step.
We had to get into pairs, and choose two topics.
One was one we absolutely disagreed on.
The other was one we agreed on.
We had to create as deep rapport as we could and talk about the topic we disagreed on.
Deep vs. Surface
And the opposite way with the other one.
This was absolute proof that rapport is much more important than the conversational topic.
We almost got into a fight on the topic we agreed on, because we had such confrontational energy.
It was impossible to maintain a steady thought stream with this weirdo looking and you and saying your thoughts out loud.
It was like a weird form of weaponized rapport.
Rapport so deep, yet so confrontational, it would scramble your brains.
I would imagine if you had to be in a room with this guy for an hour, like an interrogation room.
You would undoubtedly go insane.
And probably never be able to think normally again.
Which means your mind would be ripe for re-imprinting.
With whatever ideas they would want you to believe this is true.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
