I know this one is going to be really controversial.
I don’t care. Because its really cool.
I watched the movie "Inception" the other day and I was shocked.
They almost got it 100% Right.
Seriously. Watch it multiple times.
Now obviously space and intellectual common sense will not let me divulge every bit of what I know about exactly how to implant thoughts in the minds of others using covert and conversational hypnosis techniques.But I will give you something to play with.
when we talk about covert hypnosis and conversational hypnosis the sexiest techniques that almost always come up are
A – Embedded Commands
B. Thought Binds
D. Quotes patterns
While the techniques themselves are great, and they do work, most people do not use them effectively and they fail to apply any real strategy when using them.They are also the ones most people know and are actively screening for. but if you are going to use them(and you should) the following article series will completely transform your game.
Which brings us to the "Inception" Method of Covert Hypnotic Influence.as I like to call it. Inception is a simple and easy way to implant thoughts into the minds of your subjects. Now at the risk of spoiling the movie for you I do have to tell you a bit about it and then show you how it relates to directly implanting thoughts into the minds of others.
WARNING: MOVIE SPOILER COMMING UP!
Inception is based around the concept of a group of hi-tech specialists in "Dream invasion and Extraction" In other words they break into a persons dreams, create a whole new world that the dreamer believes is his and then they quickly find where he or she stores their deepest and darkest secrets, break into that particular mental construct within the dream and extract the information.
Now to be honest that in and of itself is pretty cool but then it gets better.
Our intrepid cast of dream invaders are contracted (I won’t tell you why)" to break into someones dream and instead of "extracting" information, they are tasked to actually "implant" a thought within the mind of the target. I won’t spoil the movie for you by telling you how it ends or any of the really good stuff. but…
Like I said they came really close to the actual technique
The first mistake people make when trying to implant thoughts in the minds of others is they make the thoughts they seek to implant way too complex.
Remember your mind has levels of perception, processing, projection and experience. the thoughts we consciously are aware of are actually the most superficial level and are the end result of a whole series of pre-conscious and unconscious processes that arise out of the deepest structure of our mind.
This why embedded commands sometimes work and sometimes not. When using an embedded command the purpose is to implant a suggestion using your tonality or some other way to mark off the commands you are seeking to implant.
For optimum results you must keep the commands simple, usually under 5 words works best. They must include a verb in other words you actually have to tell your subject to do something.
Now I have noticed a sub category of the embedded command that I like to call the embedded perception and this would be akin to complex equivalent type of statement but delivered with a commanding tonality the same way you would a command. (if you don’t know what a complex equivalence is see my STEALTH Hypnosis Course When it becomes available.
As you continue reading this article you’ll quickly discover "its very good" to read it multiple times until you really get the concept.
Now obviously I am really calling attention to the embedded commands and that’s okay because they are all processed before you become conscious of them anyway. If I were speaking out loud, your unconscious mind would pick up the drop in my tonality on everything that is underlined. But what I want you to notice is how short the embedded commands are and that in that one sentence alone I use 3 embedded commands.
In writing this might look a little odd, and if you understand embedded commands (like if you have ever studied nlp or hypnosis) this would jump out at you as a blatant attempt to install something. which in turns sends up warning flags that someone is trying to "implant" a thought in your mind which of course automatically leads to unconscious resistance.
That is why when using embedded commands in writing you need to understand the visual impact of what you are writing as well as the outcome you are trying to achieve.
In speaking however, this is a perfectly acceptable way to deliver embedded commands. Now I want you to pay attention to some other things here. and that goes directly to the strategic use of embeddeds in your mind control hypnosis process.
- Use short action oriented commands – no more than 3 to 5 words.
- Always use multiple commands
- Use a cause and effect structure to your commands; If We Extract Just the commands from this sentence we get
"continue reading this article —-> read it multiple times -> get the concept
Notice how there is a flow to the commands, simple direct and to the point. simplicity is power when working with embedds.
The more creative you try to get the more diluted your effects tend to become. This where Ericksonian trained and NLP trained people screw themselves up alot. They try to get way to too subtle and too vague to the point where their suggestions have no discernable flow to them and thus the unconscious mind doesn’t get the pattern to the commands that create cause and effect within the targets unconscious mind. (you must create cause and effect)
Now I want you to focus on the the one phrase I outlined in red. Notice that this embedded phrase does not have a verb in it.
In fact its pretty much structured like a statement of fact. This is what I call an "embedded perception" even though I deliver this in the structure of a statement I use the tonality of a command just like I would to deliver an embedded directive. What this does is that it inserts the suggestion of how I want the subject to perceive the topic in question as well as how I want them to perceive the commands I want them to follow.
In the movie "Inception" the characters discuss how in order to implant a thought you must first break it down into its components and become progressively more simple and primal. you also have to generate perceptions within the mind of the subject that reinforce and orient the creation of unconscious assumptions necessary to support the implanted thought.
When we give embedded perceptions we start influence "the meaning" our subject connects to a specific event, topic or experience. This is more of a background effect but is immensly powerful because it influences perception and when we can influence perceptions its only a matter of time before the thoughts we are seeking to implant begin to naturally arise within the mind of the subject..
We will pick this up in our next post.
