Hypnosis – How to Use Emotions Powerfully in Hypnosis

Emotions are essential for the success of hypnosis. They belong to the subconscious mind and are the driving forces in decision making. These factors make them particularly useful for the hypnotist.

The first question is how to elicit emotions during the process of hypnosis. There are a number of effective techniques that you can use.

You can slip in emotions directly. You can say, “Enjoying benefit X will make you happy and content.”

You can also elicit emotions indirectly during hypnosis. For instance, you can say, “Imagine seeing the love in your children’s eyes, when you get them benefit X.”

One trick based on this form of indirect suggestions is to give objects thoughts and emotions. You can say, “Imagine how much happier and livelier your living room will be with this carpet.” Notice how the emotions are indirectly attached to the person who is under hypnosis.

Anchors are extremely effective tools for eliciting emotions. You can readily come up with visual, auditory and kinesthetic anchors by yourself and use them during the hypnotic process.

The next logical question to ask is when to elicit emotions during this process. As you can see from the examples above, you should use emotions primarily during the main stage of the hypnotic process when you are explaining to the person the benefits he will get from doing what you want.

You can use a classic embedded command with a presupposition and say, “See yourself confident and content, after having done this.” You can also ask, “How content will you feel after having done this?”

Similarly, you can use the technique for giving object emotions and thoughts. You can say to the person, “Your living room will thank you for having decorated it with this classy carpet.”
