Hypnotize Someone – Part II

In the previous post we explained why it’s good to know about the fundamentals of NLP before you hypnotise anyone. Now, we continue explaining the remaining NLP fundamentals.

I find that coaching the clients around number 6 below can be quite a relief for them when they realise that their habit or pattern just needs to be changed and that they are so more than their behaviour.

Often we judge behaviours or our own behaviours and we do not look for the deeper meaning or intention. I find that by being free of judgement and asking the question, what does that behaviour do for the person, we get closer to discovering a way to help them stop the unhelpful patterns or programs in their life. Have an unwanted pattern or behaviour Stop beating up yourself accept the behaviour and ask its intention you  can make a shift in conciousness in its self with the right questions.  How can I get that intnention and let go of the unwanted behavior ?

6.      Every behaviour has a positive intention.

All our actions have at least one purpose – to achieve something that we value and benefits us. NLP separates the intention or purpose behind an action from the action itself. A person is not their behaviour. When a person has a better choice of behaviour that also achieves their positive intention, they will take it. The intention behind a behaviour may well be different from the effect it has or had.

7.      The unconscious mind balances the conscious; it is not malicious.

The unconscious is everything that is not in consciousness at the present moment. It contains all the resources we need to live in balance.

8.      The meaning of the communication is not simply what you intend, but also the response you get.

This response may be different to the one you wanted. There are no failures in communication, only responses and feedback. If you are not getting the result you want, change what you are doing. Take responsibility for the communication and for how others respond to you.

9.      We already have all the resources we need, or we can create them.

There are no unresourceful people, only unresourceful states of mind. Act as if people have all the resources they need even if they do not currently have access to these resources.

10. Mind & body form a system. They are different expressions of one person.

Mind and body interact and mutually influence each other. It is not possible to make a change in one without the other being affected. When we think differently, our bodies change. When we act differently we change our thoughts and feelings.

11. We process all information through our senses.

Developing your sense so they become more acute gives you better information and helps you think more clearly. Recognise that people interact with their internal ‘versions’ of reality rather than with pure, sensory-based, input. Memory and imagination use the same neurological and physical circuits and potentially have the same effect.

12. Modelling successful performance leads to excellence.

If one person can do something it is possible to model it and teach it to others. In this way everyone can learn to get better results in their own way, you do not become a clone of the model – you learn from them.

13. If you want to understand – Act

The learning is in the doing.

14. There is no such thing as failure – only feedback.

Redefine mistakes as feedback – and change what you are doing if what you are doing is not working.

Learn Hypnosis Ecology

Before you start helping with  hypnosis it is vital that you understand the process of ecology…



"Remember that to change your mind and follow him who sets you right is to be none the less free than you were before."

Marcus Aurelius

To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

A dictionary definition of Ecology is "the relationship between organisms and their environment." This is a good concise definition but what does it mean to you if applied in the context of your own life and the context of other people? 

The concept of Ecology in NLP touches on some interesting nominalizations like self and other.  Ecology in NLP can be described as the actions, behaviours and attitudes that are necessary to ensure your own continued personal well being so that you are emotionally, mentally and physically well.  Similarly if acting as an agent of change then by way of your actions, behaviours and attitudes with other human beings you ensure their continued personal well being.

Influence or manipulation?

People are attempting to influence us all of the time, in many contexts and situations.  From our parents when we were children to supermarket advertising trying to tempt us with pictures of delicious sun ripened apples to advertising painted on the sides of commercial vehicles. There are attempts to influence us all around. Some of these attempts use NLP patterns to, in my opinion unethically influence us, take a recent McDonalds advert – notice the embedded command.

‘If you don’t want a hamburger have a salad’  

The advert shows a rather small dish of salad and a huge succulent hamburger with fresh crispy lettuce and sun ripened tomato. 

Notice the effect of reading the last paragraph, especially the words and contrast with an advert that simply shows a dish of salad and a hamburger.

A perceived truth, if there is such a thing, is that NLP can be manipulative.  The application of some NLP patterns can be used to manipulate people. Note that the NLP patterns in themselves are not manipulative but the person using the NLP process who attempts the manipulation.

Ethical influence is a personal choice and of course what each individual person regards as ethical can be an interesting subject to explore. If you’re ethical (whatever that means) and you influence people that is fine. People may indeed want to be influenced and they may want to be influenced in such a way that they benefit from any interaction – this is called dovetailing outcomes.

Sales professionals attempt to influence in all of their interactions.  A customer may not know how much they can benefit from a new product. The influencing process of selling may be something like this…

  • Create and maintain rapport
  • Ethically introduce the new product and all of its benefits
  • Gauge the person’s level of interest
  • If yes – more process until sale is agreed
  • If no – leave and move on

Unethical manipulation would in this context be a continuing attempt to sell the new product after discovering the ‘client’ has zero interest.

Please feel free to spend a few minutes to consider what ecology is to you and add your comments at the bottom of this article.

The Physiology of Excellence

This is my “depressed stance.”  When you’re depressed, it makes a lot of difference how you stand.  The worst thing you can do is straighten up and hold your head high because then you’ll start to feel better.  If you’re going to get any joy out of being depressed, you’ve got to stand like this.

Charlie Brown

“It is madness to only prepare yourself physically and leave your mental frame to chance. The difference that makes the difference is learning how to feel strong in your mind as well as your body. Every athlete should understand that you don’t have to have a gold medal around your neck to feel like you’re a champion.”

Roger Black

This was developed by John Grinder and is simplicity itself. It is also exceptionally powerful. In a nutshell, Grinder said that our behaviour (what we do and how well we do it) is inextricably linked with our mood and thinking, our posture and our breathing.

The fastest way to change our state is to change our breathing. So, if you’re stressed, you’re likely to be taking fast and shallow breaths. Change your breathing to deep and slow breaths! Then alter your posture. Posture and breathing are closely linked to how we feel. For example, it would be almost impossible to feel depressed when we are breathing calmly and standing upright with a huge smile across our face.

Then adopt a state you feel would be a useful one to have. For example, if I start to become nervous when I’m presenting, I move into deep breathing techniques, stand more upright and then ask myself the question “what would a better state be to be in?” If the answer is confidence, I fake it! I act “as if” I was confident. Strangely enough, a couple of minutes of doing all this and I notice that any nerves I did have are either totally disappeared or “at worst” lessened considerably.
