Hypnosis is defined as a mental state or as set of attitudes and beliefs which is usually induced by the by a technique or procedure known as the hypnotic induction. This is usually involved with a process of subliminal instruction and suggestion with the intention of controlling the actions and decision of an individual. There is a popular misconception that hypnosis is a form of unconsciousness resembling sleep hypnosis is described as a state of physical relaxation accompanied and induced by mental concentration.

Hypnosis is the ability to control the mind of others to make them do what you want. It give you the ability to access the subconscious mind of others and give them instruction. There are broadly two types of hypnosis, the clinical also known as hypnotherapy, used for treating people and conversational hypnosis otherwise known as covert hypnosis.

Conversational hypnosis is a technique that allows you communicate to the subconscious mind of people and instructing them to do what you want them to do without them being aware of their hypnotic state. The subject is guided into a relaxed hypnotic state using verbal and non-verbal (such as fixing of eye gaze, smiling in particular way an so on) techniques.

The subject of hypnotic can be traced back to the Milton model, a model for indirect interpersonal communication a work of Dr. Erick H. Milton. The model was actually created by linguist John Grinder and Richard Bandler, who founded the Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP). The duo of Richard Bandler and John Grinder actually met with Dr. Milton for a period of time and modeled his approach which produced the Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton H. Erickson Volume I (1975), and then in 1977 by Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton H. Erickson Volume II, which together form the basis of the model, a way to use an imprecise language to make a person work at an unconscious somatic level. The Milton model was largely developed to form the model of covert hypnosis. Other people who have made profound contribution to the field are Igor Lechodowsky and Dr. Joe Vitale.

Learning covert hypnosis is very interesting. There are some techniques you can adopt in learning the model. Firstly, you need to be able to catch the attention of the subject. This is the first and most important aspect of learning the model. You must be able to capture the attention of the subject.

The next thing is to be able to establish rapport. This is the level of unconscious responsiveness. Without this it will not be possible to bring about the hypnotic suggestion.

After establishing a rapport we are ready to apply the induction of trance effect. This is used the person into a state of hypnotic trance with his full consciousness. It is just like gaining the trust of the individual making the person believe you such that he sees you as an authority and listens with rapt attention and does not question whatever you say. This is done by using some verbal and none verbal communication.

Lastly is to get to present suggestion you want the subject to accept as truth without him analysing. This is done with such confidence and boldness that the listener does not doubt or question the validity of the suggestion.
