9781845902858: Hypnotic Language: Its Structure and Use

We each shape our own reality. Perceptions and cognitive processes unique to each of us determine our individual perspective on the world, and we present to ourselves what we are programmed to see. But what if we could change our perceptions and cognitive processes and consequently our reality? One way of achieving this is by harnessing the power of hypnotic language. This remarkable book examines the structures of the hypnotic sentence, and the very cognitive dimensions that allow hypnotic language to be effective in changing our minds. Defining the three facets that allow the mind to be susceptible to hypnotic language patterns, Hypnotic Language puts these insights into practice in case examples that demonstrate the application and effect of hypnotic language. Teaching us how to create the most effective hypnotic scripts, it provides new language patterns that address beliefs, time orientation, perception, spiritual matters and states of mind, and devises new hypnotic language applications that emphasise the importance of Gestalt principles and cognitive factors. An invaluable resource for hypnotherapists, psychologists, NLP practitioners and counsellors, Hypnotic Language promotes a new and deeper understanding of hypnotic language, clearly defining the divide between the conscious and unconscious mind and those language paths that link the two. Providing a wealth of scripts for hypnotic trance, it presents innovative and original ways to induce cognitive change that enable you to access your unconscious mind and the infinite resources it holds. This volume replaces the hardcover edition.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

It is important to recognize that all communication invites the receiver into a hypnotic trance. Whenever we make a statement, the person hearing our statement cannot help but respond to those words and to the thoughts that they stimulate. They will connect some meaning to what we say, and, at least for a moment, as they focus on that meaning, it puts them into a state a hypnotic state of inward focus. When they focus on the meaning that they give to our statement for that moment, they enter trance. In this text, a hypnotic state or trance refers to a focusing of attention on a thought, idea, concept, thing, etc. which excludes all other focusing on anything else. Now, as we focus on just one chunk of data, we are able to move or transport that chunk to another. In effect, we take the first thought and apply it to another thought. For instance, if I have a problem and, during hypnosis, my focus moves from my problem to focusing on a resource for healing my problem, I can so focus on the resource that I realize its ability to solve my problem. Then, I can move that resource to the problem and solve my problem by putting new meaning to the problem (Meta-stating). The process resembles using a computer to put up a picture of a person's face on the screen and then 'try on' different hairstyles or colors. In hypnosis you can take the problem to the infinite collection of possibilities and select the one that works for you. The content of the problem becomes open to change from the new information that exists in our memories or imagination. This information resides in the unconscious mind. Trance permits taking conscious mind material (the problem in this example), cut off from the unconscious mind, and integrating it with the rich resources of the unconscious mind (the resource). To distinguish conscious from unconscious mind you could think of your conscious mind as represented by where you are physically, right now, as you read this. Your unconscious mind is everywhere else in the universe. And since your response to this statement is a trance, just imagine the possibilities.

Book Description Crown House Publishing, United Kingdom, 2009. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The use of language lies at the core of most hypnotic interventions. Milton H. Erickson developed complex language patterns that now form a major part of most therapists work. In this remarkable book, the authors build on Erickson s approach, and develop it considerably further. This is amply demonstrated by means of scripts and case studies ensuring a comprehensive understanding of the techniques involved. I can say with conviction that this is a book not to miss. The price on the cover bears no relationship to the value of the immense wealth of information within that cannot fail to cause those who read it to make substantive improvements to their communication skills. The authors are to be congratulated on a fine piece of work that will become a valuable reference for all who seek to further their skills and effectiveness through understanding of the subconscious minefield that is language perception - Roger P. Allen Dp Hyp PsyV. Dr Burton and Dr Bodenhamer s book should be part of every therapist s tool chest. The clear explanation of techniques and processes for change make it invaluable for those seeking to address the basis of problem issues to achieve swift resolution - Jeanie Phillips MA LPC.
