4 Trance and trance states Trance is a changed state of consciousness (sometimes with closed eyes), in which the attention is directed inwards, a sinking into oneself, which also often arises in everyday life: when thinking and remembering, during an intensive conversation, during Meditating, watching TV, playing with children - we're constantly moving in and out! With the language patterns we can: pace and load the reality of a person, distract the consciousness, make the unconscious and its resources accessible, learn about the unconscious. Trance signals can be perceived from the outside: smooth, relaxed face eyelid fluttering eyes close by themselves changing the blinking reflex economical and small movements slowed breathing change of the swallowing reflex (often intensified at the beginning) idiomotor movements Trance signals are perceptible from the inside: slowed heartbeat increased sensory perception tingling or pulsing in fingers Toes dissociated body feeling The following spontaneous trance phenomena can occur: amnesia anesthesia regression time distortion catalepsy hypnosis practitioner page 4

6 Trance preparation: PreTalk The first phase of a hypnosis process starts with a preliminary talk, which is crucial for the success of the hypnotic intervention. First, work on beliefs and fears by clearing up misconceptions and clarifying expectations. Pay particular attention to the following key messages: Don't expect to feel hypnotized: Trance is an everyday state of perception. Many expect to experience a completely different state when you are in tance. That's not the case. Trance is a natural state that can even feel relaxing at times. Each trance level will seem familiar to the client. It's about experiencing a natural state, not feeling at the mercy of yourself. It is best to explain trance using a metaphor about an everyday phenomenon. (e.g. driving a car) Expect to feel relaxed: Hypnosis is a natural state where you feel increasing levels of relaxation. You are in control: You are in control throughout the entire process. You should know that. Would I e.g. to say: take a deep breath and it would be ok for you, would you still do it, right? But if I said rob a bank, you wouldn't do it. It's the same in hypnosis, you only accept suggestions that correspond to your own inner values ​​and ideas. You are in control. Trance is about learning how to go into trance: the processes we learn are learning processes. It's about going a little deeper with each test, the more tests you pass, the more successful you are and the deeper you can go. You can use a few more convincers to prove the effectiveness of the method. The following are convincing: Suggestibility tests Levitation of the eyelids Arm levitation Hypnosis Practitioner Page 6

7 Erickson's Speech Patterns Patients are patients because they are not in rapport with their own unconscious. Patients are people who have been programmed too much so much from outside that they have lost touch with their inner selves. I've learned over the years that I wanted to direct the patient too much. It took me some time to learn how to make things happen and then how to use this dige. (Milton Erickson, 1976) Mirroring the current experience The current sensory perception of the listener, to which the listener can only agree. You came here, sit in this chair and breathe. Simple connection using and Two independent sentences are connected to one another. The first sentence refers to something that is already occurring, the second sentence introduces something that the speaker wants to bring about. You can sit here in your chair and listen to me. Mind Reading You claim to know the other person's thoughts or feelings without indicating how you think you know them from. You can just relax full of anticipation. Cause and effect Independent statements are linked by stating that one thing causes another thing. Linking through because, causing, causing ... Each breath causes you to relax even better because ... Lost performative evaluations where the person making the evaluation is not mentioned. It's a good thing to be relaxed and full of expectations. Hypnosis Practitioner page 7

8 modal operators Words that indicate possibility or necessity and can determine rules of life. you can learn about yourself ... Complex equivalence Two independent statements are equated in their meaning. Your eyelids are still moving. That means that you are already very relaxed. Universal quantifiers A group of words that represent a universal generalization and have no frame of reference. always, everyone, nobody, never Nominalization Words like: curiosity, learning, ease etc. are nominalizations. They are used as an event, but are actually processes. Nominalizations are nouns that cannot be put in a wheelbarrow. Relaxation spreads and leads to new knowledge. Unspecified Verbs Little specific verbs (without adverb) without explanation, to which the listener assigns the meaning himself: know, feel ... And you will know when you feel it. Missing Reference Index A phrase that does not relate to a particular listener's experience. And you can ... Simple deletion and comparative deletion The substantive expression in the sentence is missing or, in the case of a comparative deletion, it is not specified with whom or what is compared Hypnosis Practitioner page 8

9 will. And I know that you are curious. (On what?) Because then you will feel better (on what?). Linguistic presuppositions 1. Or: Assumption that one of the alternatives offered will be realized. 2. Existence: through verbs of perceiving (notice, recognize, perceive ...) the rest of the sentence becomes a presumption. 3rd possibility: Adverbs and adjectives make the statement of the main clause a presupposition. 4. Sequence: A sequence is indicated by ordinal numbers (one more, first, first, second ...). 1. I don't know if your left or right side of your body will relax. 2. I notice a movement that means that 3. How easily can you learn? (Assumption: You can learn.) 4. Perhaps you notice which parts of the body relax first. Demand A question attached to a statement to avoid resistance. Is not it? Yes? Conversational postulates Decision-making questions which, instead of an answer, cause a certain reaction without asking for it directly. I wonder if you can go any deeper. Temporal link Statements that are independent of one another are linked to one another on the basis of a temporal context, by as soon as, during, by ... as soon as ... Double Bind The message sent is ambiguous, but all meanings are in the speaker's sense. Whatever the importance of the listener Hypnosis Practitioner page 9

10 selects, he follows the speaker. You can relax first and then study, or study first and then relax. Extended quotations You formulate a statement that you want to make to the other as if someone else had made it on another occasion. This transfers responsibility for the content of the message to this third party. Just like the Buddhist teacher who said that ... Violation of Restrictions of Choice Attributes are attributed to someone or something who, according to him, cannot possess these qualities. In some cases, objects are assigned feelings that only a human or animal can have. An armchair also has feelings. Ambiguity 1. Wording: Words that sound the same and have different meanings. 2. Syntactically: The function of a word in a sentence cannot immediately be determined by what has been said before. 3. Punctuation: You string together two sentences that end or begin with the same word. 4. Sentence relation: The connection between several parts of sentences is unclear. 1. Wise orphan 2. People have an infinite number of solutions, they are waiting for them. 3. And you hear my voice getting deeper and deeper, you fall into a trance and these diverse feelings and thoughts ... Embedded messages Instead of direct instructions, a message is embedded in a longer sentence structure: 1. Analogously marked messages: This is the simplest form of embedded messages Embassy. It is emphasized by analogous marking, i.e.: The words of the message are set off from the rest of the sentence by changing the pitch of the voice, pauses, gestures ... without deliberately making the listener aware of the emphasis. Hypnosis Practitioner page 10

11 2. Negative message: There is no negation in the primary experience of seeing, hearing and feeling. Therefore, the affirmative form of the message is generally responded to. 3. Quoting message: The instruction is embedded in a quotation. 1. I think you will soon be able to feel it: you are doing better. I think you are already thinking: yes, it is good to go into a deep trance. 2. Don't relax completely. 3. My father always said to me: Let all the nines be straight and go inside to the part of the body that feels the best at the moment ... The more of these language patterns you can accommodate in a sentence, the more the effect is increased. This approach has a confusing effect and increases the willingness to go into a trance: And I don't know how quickly you notice what your unconscious has already learned, because you don't need to know before you have relaxed and that comfortably Allowing others to learn something new, meaningful and enjoyable again.

12 Deepening Techniques Any suggestion that successfully produces a trance phenomenon will by itself deepen the trance and improve the client's response. Direct and indirect suggestions: every time I touch your hands it means that you can go deeper. Go deeper now. Every breath ensures that you will be even more relaxed and evokes even deeper trance states, you can easily go deeper and deeper, as when diving, or as when skiing down the mountain, go deeper and deeper, with each swing further 1, 2 , 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 until you're at the bottom. Repeated Induction and Interruption (Fractionation): The more often the client goes into trance, the more learning experience there is and the easier it is to go deeper. So it can sometimes be helpful to tear your client out of the trance in between. This allows you to go deeper. Embedded Metaphors: Metaphors strengthen the client's trance. You can use metaphors and wrap your suggestions in a so-called metaphor bracket, this deepens trance. The more metaphors, the deeper the trance. Metaphors The word metaphor comes from the Greek and means something like: transmit, translate, transport. Metaphors take you beyond one meaning and open your imagination to multiple possible meanings. As mentioned earlier, metaphors strengthen the client's trance. You can use metaphors and wrap your suggestions in a so-called metaphor bracket, this deepens trance. The more metaphors, the deeper the trance. (There seems to be a decreasing marginal utility after 12 embedded metaphors.) Hypnosis Practitioner page 12

13 Post-hypnotic suggestions Suggestions that only take effect after induction are called post-hypnotic suggestions. A post-hypnotic suggestion can be activated a few minutes after induction or months later. For post-hypnotic suggestion, you need medium to low levels of dance, especially if amnesia is a key element. A post-hypnotic suggestion ... contains a trigger. Tell the client what the trigger is (e.g. when I touch my upper lip ...) is direct and on point. Be directive in your words during deep trances. Tell the client what to do. Tell the client when to do it is embedded in a frame (e.g. metaphor frame) Any post-hypnotic suggestion that was only established for experimental purposes must be deleted at the end of the session. e.g .: ... I wake up completely. Well. Any and all hypnotic suggestions regarding the production of hypnotic phenomena are hereby canceled. Hypnosis Practitioner page 13

14 Contraindications for hypnosis You do not use hypnosis ... if the client acts in a manner that is dangerous for himself or others, that is, if he or she is dangerous for himself or for others. In this case, you refer to a doctor. when the client wants to work with deeply repressed feelings or trauma. It is advisable to use other NLP techniques beforehand (e.g. working with the timeline). if the client wants to work on a life-threatening illness. A referral from a doctor is necessary for this. Always point out that hypnosis is used as a complement, not as a therapy. With hypnosis you do not heal illnesses yourself, but support. if the client wants to work on a psychiatric illness. Do not work with hypnosis especially for multiple personality disorders, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, histrionic personality disorders or epilepsy. People of the opposite sex should only be hypnotized in the presence of a reliable witness. Hypnosis Practitioner page 14
