Conversational hypnosis allows you to hypnotize a person during a conversation and it only happens subconsciously. Though it actually does not put the person into hypnotism; however, it allows you to draw the person’s attention and build an instant rapport with him to convey your feelings easily.
Building rapport with someone helps you to synchronize with him smoothly and if built subconsciously, it is known as telepathy. This helps you to gain trust of the person with whom you are trying to communicate.
This type of hypnosis involves Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) and one aspect of NLP or conversational hypnosis is representational system, which are mainly of three (3) types – visual, auditory and kinesthetic.
• Visual – This system makes you aware of the people who are more in sync with their visual field and gets attracted towards their visual field. If you explain something to these people, more often than naught they are going to visualize the image mentally and while recapitulating the conversation at a later date, they are going to mentally imagine the story.
Artists who deal with color, shape and visual images are typically visual people; musicians fit this category perfectly.
• Auditory – There are people who rely on their auditory sense and are receptive to sounds. These people hear the words and sounds and relate things to these. People who rely on their auditory sense, tend to say “sounds good” or “I hear what you are saying” during a conversation.
• Kinesthetic – This system describes people who rely on their feelings or sense of touch. People who are dependent on their kinesthetic representational system tend to say “hold on”, when they want you to pause during a conversation. People, like sculptors, who work with texture and form are perfect examples of kinesthetic group.
It is quite interesting to note that it is easy to build rapport with people who respond to these three senses. They realize that you are with them and help them to understand that you are trying to communicate; since they will be confident and at ease with you.
Now I am going to explain you as to how you can subconsciously hypnotize a person through conversational hypnosis.
Any individual, during communication, conveys 70% of his/her conversation through body language like facial expression, hand gestures, voice modulation, heart rate, breathing, etc.
If you follow these verbal and non-verbal techniques you can establish rapport with the concerned person through pacing and mirroring. Pacing is replicating things what the other person is doing; it can either be verbal or non-verbal conversation, body language, rhythm, etc.
This method requires you to figure out the person’s representational system, i.e. visual, auditory and kinesthetic and use it to your advantage in building up the rapport.
Mirroring, on the other hand, is non-verbal and requires you to observe and involve in body language, hand gestures, etc. to strike an immediate rapport. Every person has a natural rhythm, flow and balance in his/her speech.
One of the pacing techniques requires you to listen carefully to the speech and try to match this rhythm. This is going to help the person relate to you easily and the conversation is going to reach a different level. Also try to judge the tone of the person’s voice and if you can change your own tone slightly to match the person’s, then surely give it a try.
However, if she has a very distinct pitch, then it is advisable not to follow suit because it might offend him. Try out these simple techniques and you are sure to get delighted by the outcome.
