Just about everyone wants a nice, tight mid-section. And why not? The focal point of the body is the abdominal area.
I’m going to teach you something about getting the Hypnotic Abs.
Not the bodybuilder, six-pack, washboard type. Rather, the type of “ABS” you need to hypnotize another person.
Did you know there are 86,440 seconds in a day? And did you know the human eye blinks about once or twice every 10 seconds?
Which means, in a typical day, you blink from 8,644 times up to 17,288 times on average.
What does blinking have to do with hypnosis?
Actually, quite a bit.
The A… B… S… formula for hypnosis states that you must first get someone’s undivided ATTENTION in order to put them in a trance.
A neat way to get the process going is to tell them a few interesting facts about the eyes.
As you do, look at them intently and they will likely begin focusing their eyes on you.
This kind of innocent banter will seem harmless to the subject. But it will accomplish the one thing without which hypnosis won’t happen easily.
That is… getting their ATTENTION.
Here are a few interesting facts about the eyes (think of them as conversation starters) you might want to try out…
- Our eyes are the most complex organs except for brain. They contain more than 2 million working parts.
- More than 10 million color hues are detected by the human eye, but ultraviolet or infrared light are not detected.
- The human eye can distinguish 500 shades of gray color!
- We blink once or twice in 10 seconds. A blink lasts 0.3 seconds. On average, we blink 25 minutes in 12 hours.
- Our eyes can focus on up to 50 things in a single second!
Once you’ve captured a subject’s attention… and… have their eyes riveted on you… what’s next?
By-pass the critical factor.
How is that done?
Any number of ways. One good one is to tell a story with a simple hypnotic theme.
Remember, the critical factor is more or less a form of resistance. People tend to resist things that are direct.
Stories melt this resistance like butter in a micro-wave oven.
For instance, if you want to relax the subject, you can recount a story about how you relaxed on the beach.
The act of picturing the scenes in their mind and getting emotionally involved with the story begins to breakdown their mental defenses.
The last part of honing your hypnotic “ABS” is to stimulate the subject’s unconscious mind.
Which can happen as part of the story you’re telling. In other words, as you describe the relaxing scene, you can begin to give the subject some direct suggestions to relax themselves.
The segue from by-passing the critical factor to stimulating the unconscious is unnoticeable.
So there you have it!
To summarize, every hypnotic interaction involves:
A – Getting the subject’s attention.
B – By-passing the critical factor.
S – Stimulating an unconscious response.
Get your “ABS” in shape and you too will become hypnotic powerhouse.
