Conversational Hypnosis – Using Anchors and Metaphors Effectively

hypnosis15 150x150 Conversational Hypnosis   Using Anchors and Metaphors Effectively

One of the main benefits of conversational hypnosis is that it allows you to use all aspects of language and communication to get what you want from people. Anchors and metaphors can make your hypnotic process even more effective and produce even better results.

Let’s look at anchors first. These are stimuli that elicit specific mind states in a person. For instance, you feel scared, when you hear a door creaking.

Anchors have a number of uses in conversational hypnosis. You can use a positive anchor to build rapport as well as to make the person realize the benefits of doing what you want.

The key to success is to incorporate anchors in the things you say so that they are not too obvious. Similarly, the anchor should be linked to the thing you want the person to do and not only to the respect emotion that you want to create.

In general, the easiest way to use anchors is to make comparisons. For instance, “By doing your homework now and not leaving it for later, you will get to feel as relaxed as during a school break.” This example illustrates all the rules described above.

Metaphors are a bit more complex to use in conversational hypnosis, especially when you do not know the person well. Still, it is a misconception that metaphors cannot be used to influence less educated and knowledgeable people.

One of the simplest ways to use metaphors to influence people is through story telling. You can readily tell the story of a person that the subject can indentify himself with. You can slip different metaphors into the story as well.

In general, metaphors are particularly useful when you cannot say things straightforwardly, but you want to influence the person effectively.

Now you know how to be even more influential when using conversational hypnosis. Keep learning more with my article Conversational Hypnosis-Commanding Other People Through Conversation.
