In this installment of the invisible hypnosis series, we take a closer look at the use of hypnosis in everyday situations. We will cover some basic applications, as well as some more specific moments when hypnosis could be used to better the lives of yourself and others around you.

 

Let’s first look at the basic techniques of hypnosis. The general theory is to cause your subject to act on suggestions you give them – and the deeper in hypnosis they are, the less restrictions are placed on the suggestions. Broken down, we can see that the components of a hypnosis session can be applied to other situations.

Take the induction, for instance. Technically speaking, this can only be used to cause a person to enter a hypnotic state, but the key here is to then utilize that state without your subject knowing. Covert hypnotists use covert inductions all the time, using eye fixations or confusion in order to put pressure on their subject to accept a suggestion. Simple in theory, but as any hypnotist will tell you, getting a hypnotic induction into everyday conversation is much harder in practice.

 

Next we shall look at the suggestion side of the coin. When hypnotists give suggestions to a subject, they often use language techniques to increase the odds of their success. Take, for instance, the dissociation principle – when dealing either with the catalepsy or amnesia phenomena, it is common to refer to the target (e.g. the arm) in such a way as to think of it as separate from the subject themselves – “that arm”, as opposed to “your arm”. It is possible to take such techniques and use them with relative ease in real life, using them to increase the power of suggestions.
