Lesson 1 - Why hypnosis works

In this lesson you'll discover the reason that people are able to accept suggestions during hypnosis that they can not accept during normal waking consciousness, even if they want to.

This lesson lays a solid foundation that will help you to understand (and confidently explain) the hypnotic process before you start hypnotising people.

Lesson 2 - Hand Locking Demonstration

In this lesson I invite you to become the hypnotic subject while I demonstrate a classic hand locking routine. Watch the lesson through a few times, paying close attention to my actions and the words I use. This routine is great for demonstrating the power of hypnosis without having to do a formal induction.

Lesson 3 - Hand Locking Explained

Your 3rd lesson is ready for you below. This lesson is a brief introduction to lots of different hypnotic patterns. So don't worry about trying to remember everything at this stage. We'll be covering each hypnotic language pattern in detail later.

In this lesson I explain how and why the hand locking routine works. You'll find out about many different language patterns that will make yesterdays lesson seem a lot more complex! After you've gone through this lesson watch lesson two again and see how many of these patterns you can pick out. (You'll find a link to lesson 2 in the email)

Now that you're aware of some of the more subtle patterns that hypnotists use you'll begin to notice these same strategies cropping up everywhere. Particularly in political speeches and advertising presentations!

Oh... And just ignore me at the end where I say I'll see you in lesson 3!! This is lesson 3... I'll see you next time in lesson 4! ;)

Lesson 4 - The Hypnotist's Role

In today's lesson I wanted to take a little bit of a step back and look at the role of the hypnotist in the hypnotic process. So many people believe that the hypnotist must use some kind of power to 'put people under' but it's really not like that. All hypnosis could be described as self hypnosis and when you clearly understand this process it makes the idea becoming a hypnotist much easier to accept.

The metaphor that I use in this lesson can be used to describe the hypnotic process to your clients. It's shifts some of the responsibility of entering trance from you to them, which can be pretty handy when you first start out practicing on your friends!

I hope you enjoy the lesson.

Lesson 5 - Hypnosis and Relaxation

One of the ways that you can guide a person into trance is to slow down their brainwave frequency through relaxation. This is essentially what happens during a progressive relaxation induction. In this lesson we explore this idea in more detail and take a look at how you can use relaxation to help your subject into trance.

Lesson 6 - Brainwave Entrainment

In this 'lesson' I'm focusing on a couple of things. First, yesterdays homework! I wanted to reiterate how valuable doing this will be (as I know that hardly anyone actually does it!) also I wanted to talk a little more about brainwave frequencies and introduce you to brainwave entrainment software, which can be used to lead a person from Beta to Alpha.

Oh... and please excuse my terrible pronunciation of Binaural! I didn't realize until I watched this one back, but I keep saying Binaurial.

Lesson 7 - Linguistic Bridges

In this lesson we begin the process of 'beefing up' your script. Today, we are adding the first layer. This will instantly make your script more effective... (just like adding a 2nd pencil)

If you didn't do your homework, you can copy mine (or do it now) so that you have something to work with today.

Lesson 8 - Confusion

Today we're going to put another layer into your induction script, just to beef it up a little. This time, we're adding some confusion to overload the conscious mind.

Confusion techniques are not usually used during a progressive relaxation induction. This kind of thing is usually done in street hypnosis, but a little bit of confusion really helps to overload conscious processing and give us a window of opportunity to slip a suggestion into the subconscious... and that's handy for any style of induction!

Lesson 9 - Engaging Modalities

Today we're adding another layer to your script. This time we're using different modalities to make the induction a more immersing experience for the subject.

Lesson 10 - Cheating!

By now I guessing you're probably thinking that there's far to much to focus on, what with all those layers and language patterns to think about! Well, fret not, because there are some really cool little short cuts that you can use that make hypnotising people much much easier... especially if you're a beginner.

Lesson 11 - Embedded Commands

Today we look at one of the ways that you can hide a command inside a seemingly innocent sentence so that it totally bypasses the critical factor and gets right into a persons subconscious mind.

Embedded commands are really easy to do, although they do take a little bit of preparation. I recommend that you create a few universal statement using these techniques that you can use for any induction.

Embedded commands are very often used during covert or conversational hypnosis, without the use of a formal induction. If you'd like to learn more about covert hypnosis please watch my review of the most popular covert hypnosis courses after your lesson.

Lesson 12 - How to say what you say

Today we explore one of the most important parts of the induction.... the delivery! The way you say the words that you use to hypnotise a person are far more important than the actual words themselves.

In this lesson we talk about pace, tone, non verbal communication and what you should be thinking when you're hypnotising people.

Enjoy!

Lesson 13 - Trance Deepeners

In todays lesson we explore the next step in the induction process... the trance deepener. There are lots of ways to deepen the trance state, you simply need to create an association between the sensation of moving down with the idea of going deeper into trance.

It really helps if you engage all of the senses, so really take your time to include all modalities when you do this.

Lesson 14 - Signs of trance

Today we are taking a look at some of the ways you can tell that your client is responding to your induction. There are several clues to look out for and these help you to determine when to progress your session onto the therapy content (or stage routines).

Lesson 15 - Wake up script

In this lesson we look at the best ways to bring a person back up from hypnosis, as well as dispelling the myth that it is possible to become stuck in trance.

Lesson 16 - Distractions

In this lesson I talk about distractions. When you understand how to deal with distractions they'll no longer interrupt your induction. In fact, you'll probably be hoping for one so that you can use it to deepen the trance state.

Lesson 17 - Dangers of Hypnosis

In this lesson I talk about the dangers of hypnosis, how it can be abused and the problems that can be accidentally caused by ill-conceived suggestions.

Lesson 18 - Attention

In todays lesson we look at attention. How to get it and why it's important. Attention is particularly important when you are doing more dynamic inductions, such as those that you would normally do on stage or during street hypnosis.

(Oh... and when I say 'From which we get the word Mesmer'.... I meant Mesmerise!)

Lesson 19 - The Garden Metaphor (+ Free Gift!)

Today I wanted to give you another metaphor that helps to explain why hypnosis is a more powerful tool for change than anything you client may have tried before.

Also... I touch on the idea of using hypnosis alongside the Law of Attraction to help a person (or yourself) to create any reality you desire... Now I know this concept won't be for everybody, but this is something that I very strongly encourage you to experiment with.

This is the way I'm using hypnosis with my clients and I've enjoyed some astonishing results that most hypnotists would swear were impossible.

I really want to encourage you to take off the blinkers of what you think hypnosis can or can not do and just go for it!

Lesson 20 - Quick and Easy Deepeners

In this lesson we look at some really easy ways of deepening the trance state. The first is based on the idea of compressing lots of sessions into one so that a person goes in and out of trance many times during the induction. The second is a really simple way of slightly shocking your subject.

Lesson 21 - Golden Rule #1 - Positive Focus

In this lesson I give you the first of my 3 golden rules. By following these simple rules you'll be able to create effective therapy for any situation. Today you'll learn rule number 1... keep your suggestions positively focused in the direction of the change your client wants to become... not what they are trying to move away from.

There are situations where you will need to break this rule, and I'll be looking at those later. But for the most part, maintaining a positive focus on your desired outcome is a much more powerful way of helping people to change.

Lesson 22 - Golden Rule #2 - Selling the Change

In this lesson you'll learn my second golden rule of creating suggestions... selling the change to your clients subconscious mind.

This is all about making the desired change much more desirable than their current situation so that their subconscious mind naturally chooses it. The trick here is to find out what your client values.

Lesson 23 - Golden Rule #3 - Present Tense

Today we look at the 3rd golden rule of creating powerful hypnotic suggestions. This one is all about keeping your suggestions in the present tense. By doing this you are causing your client to resonant in harmony with the idea of actually having the thing they desire as opposed to it always being off in the future.

It doesn't sound like a very important distinction but the energy is very different. Connecting with the energy, emotions and feeling of having already achieved their goal is incredibly powerful. You can also guide your client to bring those emotions back to the present and use them as motivation to achieve the goal.

Lesson 24 - When to break the Golden Rules

Over the past 3 lessons we've talked about my 3 golden rules of creating powerful life changing hypnotic suggestions. Now we're going to talk about breaking those rules!

This is something that I'd wouldn't normally advice, but their are occasions when you almost have to scare people into taking action.

Breaking the first golden rule (of always focusing on the positive direction of change) is one of he easiest ways to do this. Showing somebody a reality that they really don't want is a very powerful way of motivating them to do something about avoiding it. However, once you've got them moving you need to make sure they shift their focus back to what it is they do want, because where attention goes... energy flows.

Lesson 25 - Perception and Emotion

Today we look at the way that you can change the way something makes you feel by changing the way you think about it.

This simple technique is the basis of many life transforming strategies... we'll be getting to those next!

Lesson 26 - Abreaction

Today we discuss the way that you deal with abreaction. It's does sound scary... but don't worry, it's very easy to do and it's so rare that you'll probably never have to do it.

Lesson 27 - Modeling

In this lesson we look at the way that you can learn new skills by stepping into a person that already has them. It sounds complicated, but it's really just like playing dress up as a child.

Lesson 28 - Modality Preferences

In this lesson we explore the different ways that people think and how to determine which system your client is using, so that you can more easily 'speak their language' and gain rapport.

Lesson 29 - Adjusting Sub-Modalities

In the last lesson we explored the different ways that people think, today we take this idea a step further and look at the subtle qualities of those thoughts... and how adjusting them can completely change someone's emotional response.

Lesson 30 - Fast Phobia Cure (Version 1)

Today we start putting together some of the strategies that we've been talking about for the past few lessons to help people overcome their fears with the NLP fast phobia cure.

Lesson 31 - Fast Phobia Cure (Version 2)

Today we explore an alternative to the fast phobia cure that works really well with people that find it difficult to visualize.

Lesson 32 - Rapid Hypnosis Demo

Today we have something a little special for you... your first look at rapid hypnosis in action. This lesson is simply a demonstration of a basic rapid induction, with some simple therapy to help a person overcome blocks.

In your next lesson we'll be picking this one apart and discovering exactly how the rapid induction works.

Lesson 33 - Rapid Hypnosis Explained

Now it's time to analyse what we did in the last lesson. As you'll discover here, a rapid induction is about setting up situations that you can exploit, causing a person to enter a natural state of trance.
