The other day I saw a really good movie.
Very well calibrated.
Even though I suspected how the movie was going to come out, I couldn’t take my eyes off of it.
The acting was fantastic.
Each character arc was perfectly calibrated within the movie itself, and with the overall story arc.
Most movies today are not like that.
Most movies today are kind of like boxing matches.
They first half hour is to set up the good guys and the bad guys and the overall objective.
Then the rest is to see who wins.
Sometimes, during these mainstream time movies, I secretly check the time.
Kind of like if you’re in school watching a boring lecture.
And you sneak a peak at your watch and see if it’s over yet.
But for this recent movie, it gave me the early morning alarm clock experience.
Where you check the clock, see how much time you’ve got left, and get a REALLY good feeling when you’ve got plenty of time life.
Luckily, this movie was well over two hours.
Plenty of time to soak up the well written dialogue and slow turns of the plot.
This is very high level movie hypnosis.
Where you don’t have to do ANY work.
Other movies, you need to do a bit of mental work to play along.
To suspend disbelief.
You see something that takes you OUT of “movie trance.”
Of course, this is very subjective.
When I was a kid I was a science geek.
I loved science and I was always questioning everything.
Very hard for me to stay in “movie trance.”
I would always find myself thinking:
“That would NEVER happen in real life.”
Stories Aren’t Real
Of course, the point of movies is NOT to show what happens in real life.
They are to tell a story.
A story to move your emotions through carefully calibrated sequences.
But if you put an element in a movie that jars the viewer out of movie trance, you get that, “that would never happen in real life” feeling.
Kind of like going to see a genuine hypnotist.
You’re laying there on the couch, he or she is moving you through a wonderful trance with their hypnotic language.
But then they suddenly have a coughing fit.
End of trance.
Hypnosis is a very cool thing.
A very cool state of mind.
One that we might always be in, in one state of another.
There are many, many ways to understand and leverage hypnosis.
Eye contact, words pacing, storytelling.
Use your words well, and you will want for nothing.
Mind Persuasion has plenty of books and courses to teach you how to speak hypnotically and persuasively.
