TUCoPS :: Wetware Hacking :: Others :: irc_hyp.txt

An actual hypnotic trance induction performed on IRC





PREFACE

My main interest is the use of SS (Speed Seduction), NLP
(Neuro Linguistic Programming), and Ericksonian Hypnosis
(from the late Milton Erickson, father of modern hypnotherapy)
to increase my personal power and charisma for increased
personal happiness, interpersonal happiness, and financial
success, as well as an increased ability to help others.

Remember that SS is only one application of NLP, and that
NLP is largly based on Ericksonian Hypnosis.  I believe
that, in order to be good at either SS or NLP, one should
be well grounded in Ericksonian Hypnsosis.  Also, much of this
information is repeated in books or tapes on effective
communication, since hypnosis is, in a sense, really good
communication skills.

My experience includes the following:  many Anthony Robbins
tapes, several effective communication tapes, reading the
SS newsletters, practicing online for about a month, and
starting to practice the art of pacing to gain rapport
with people.  Pacing, of course, is kind of like mimicking
another person's posture, tone, and words.  The point here,
is that I'm very much the amateur.

I'd like to point out that the first, and easiest step to
take, before trying hypnosis or embedded commands, is to
practice pacing.  That alone can provide the rapport with
a person which is necessary for both of you to enjoy each
other's company.

INTRODUCTION

The following is a chat on IRC (Internet Relay Chat) in which
a woman had come online and was complaining that she couldn't
sleep - that she hadn't slept for a long time.  I thought I
would try to induce a trance to help her relax and sleep.

Also, it may be important to note that I used a confidence
anchor (learned from a Tony Robbins tape I got from the
public library) to help me feel like I could do well in the
following dialog.

Also note that I was winging-it a lot.  Often I wasn't sure
what the next phrase was going to be!  However, IRC communication
is slow enough to allow one to think a lot between sentances!

Notes have been added to the dialog in brackets, and the identity
of the woman has been changed.

[IN THIS FIRST PART, I WAS JUST TRYING TO ESTABLISH SOME RAPPORT
BY GETTING HER TO TALK ABOUT HER SITUATION.]

<mary> hi

> Hi!
> Do you FEEL TIRED?  [OK I STARTED OUT STRONG]

<mary> can't sleep
<mary> yes

> what happened?

<mary> oh it has been a horrid week
<mary> i was in hosp

> really - what for?

<mary> i had a violent reaction to sleeping med

> what were you in the hosp for [NOTICE PACING HER OWN USE OF "HOSP"]
> oh my
> tell me more
> my name is David, by the way :)
> I might be ABLE TO HELP you

<mary> ok

> so you had a violent reaction to a sleeping med?  [MORE PACING]

<mary> yes

[I NOTICED THAT I HAD ASKED A CLOSED-ENDED QUESTION THAT
COULD BE ANSWERED WITH A SIMPLE YES-NO.  I WANTED HER TO
OPEN MORE, WHICH IS WHY I ASKED AN OPEN-ENDED QUESTION NEXT.
HOWEVER, IN RETROSPECT, IT PROBABLY WASN'T SO BAD TO ASK A
CLOSED-ENDED QUESTION THAT HAS A "YES" ANSWER, SINCE THAT'S
A POSTIVE RESPONSE.]

<mary> i did
<mary> then i have a sinus infection

> what happened after the violent reaction

<mary> and were trying to reduce my paxil
<mary> i was in the hospital for 4 days
<mary> i came home and i am ok
<mary> the worst is certain friends have now dropped me

> dropped you??? [WOOPS A CLOSED-ENDED QUESTION!]
> could you explain that? [ANOTHER OPEN-ENDED QUESTION]
> hi mary - you there?

<mary> yes
<mary> i ma here
<mary> sorry

> ok
> its ok
> could you explain about your friends - i don't understand

<mary> my friends know
<mary> what is goign on and still act like jerks

> how do they act? [OPEN ENDED QUESTION]

<mary> like i have no brain and that all my own thinking
<mary> needs help
<mary> period
<mary> i won't be online

[AT THIS POINT, I FELT LIKE I WASN'T GETTING ANYWHERE, SO I JUMPED
INTO SOMETHING ELSE]

> consider this, jane

<mary> ok

> can you remember a time
> when you felt real cozy

<mary> yes

> and to  go to sleep  was very natural

<mary> yes

> and in feeling this
> if you thought about it
> you may notice
> that you can hear sounds in the room
> can you hear small sounds
> in the room you are in?
> how about the sound of
> your breathing?

<mary> i have tried that it did not owrk

[HOW VERY INTERESTING.  I HAD JUST READ THAT THE WORD "TRY"
IMPLIES FAILURE TO THE SUBCONCIOUS MIND.]

> what did you try?

<mary> what you are suggesting

[I GOT A BIT NERVOUS HERE.  MAYBE SHE WAS THINKING I WAS TRYING
TO MESS WITH HER.  I HAD NO IDEA WHAT TO DO.  MY INITIAL REACTION
WAS TO SUGGEST THE SHE TRY AGAIN.  BUT WHAT A FAILURE THAT WOULD
HAVE BEEN - THAT WOULD HAVE PUT ME IN A "SELLING MY IDEA TO HER"
POSITION WHICH WOULD OBVIOUSLY HAVE PUT US ON SEPERATE SIDES OF
THE FENCE!  THEN IT OCCURED TO ME THAT I NEEDED TO CONTINUE TO
GAIN MORE RAPPORT.  SO I DECIDED TO AGREE WITH HER!]

> i see what you mean
> how did it feel when you tried?

[GEEZ WHAT A DUMB QUESTION!  DO I WANT HER TO ACCESS FEELINGS OF
FAILURE? NO!  OK SO TIME TO QUICKLY TURN THIS MISTAKE AROUND!]

> how would it
> feel
> if you STOP TRYING
> and if you were

<mary> i have

> ABLE TO RELAX
> that's good
> hey mary

<mary> yes

> I got an idea that might help

<mary> i do appreciate all you thoughts and ideas

> :)

[BINGO!  OK I FEEL GOOD ABOUT EVERYTHING NOW.  I FEEL CONFIDENT
THAT I HAVE ESTABLISHED RAPPORT.]

> this is a little game

[I THOUGHT ABOUT SAYING "MIND-GAME" BUT THAT SEEMED TO HAVE
NEGATIVE CONNOTATIONS.  "EXPIREMENT" ALSO HAS NEGATIVE CONNOTATIONS.]

> a game that may FREE YOUR MIND
> and help you to RELAX
> so you can GO TO SLEEP
> would  you like  to play? [OF COURSE SHE WOULD!]

[SHE WASN'T RESPONDING, SO I FIGURED SHE WAS TALKING WITH
SOMEONE ELSE AS WELL.]

> you need to  GIVE ME YOUR FULL ATTENTION
> thought
> though

<mary> ok

> are you chatting with someone else?

<mary> yes
<mary> do you wnat me to stop

> ok you should stop that chat, if that's ok

<mary> sure

[NOTE THAT SHE ASKED ME IF SHE SHOULD STOP EVEN BEFORE I
COULD GET MY SENTANCE OFF TO HER.  THIS GAVE ME CONFIDENCE
THAT I COULD TAKE THE LEAD FAIRLY QUICKLY.  SHE WAS GIVING
ME THE OK TO TAKE CONTROL.]

> ready?

<mary> ok
<mary> ok
<mary> go

> ok

<mary> hang on

> ok

<mary> ok go

> ok

<mary> ok

> first
> what is your real first name?

<mary> Mary

> :)
> If  you can relax Mary  [NOTE THE USE OF A SPACE TO MARK THE PHRASE]
> that would be good
> to start with

<mary> ok

[NOTE THAT THE PACE OF THESE SHORT, CHOPPY PHRASES IS SLOWER
THAN TYPICAL CONVERSATIONAL WRITTEN COMMUNICATION, AND WITH A
DEFINITE RHYTHM.]

> can you feel
> the weight of your body [OF COURSE SHE CAN]

<mary> yes

> perhaps you can feel
> your hands touching
> the keyboard [OF COURSE SHE CAN]

<mary> yes

> or if you notice

> on the screen
> the whiteness

<mary> yes

> you may BEGIN TO FEEL HEAVIER
> can you FEEL THAT? [I'M PRETTY SURE SHE CAN - I AM!!!]

<mary> yes

> good
> and as you FEEL THAT
> you may begin to realize
> that your eyes

> and the more you understand that

<mary> yes

> the heavier you feel

<mary> ok

> you can really FEEL YOUR WEIGHT
> now
> as you take a deep breath
> you can hear
> the sound of the air [OF COURSE SHE CAN]
> and
> perhaps you can feel other

<mary> yes

> you may wish
> to PICTURE SOMETHING FROM YOUR PAST
> in your mind's eye
> its ok to CLOSE YOUR EYES
> in order to PICTURE SOMETHING
> then tell me what it is
> take your time

[THE IDEA HERE IS, OF COURSE, TO GET HER TO CLOSE HER EYES AND
START DREAMING!]

<mary> my dad and i at our beach house before he died

[WHOA!  WHAT DO I DO WITH THIS?  OK AT FIRST I THOUGHT ABOUT
DEALING WITH THAT ISSUE, BUT THEN I FIGURED THAT COULD BE LONG
AND INVOLVED, AND THAT COULD POSSIBLY BE DETRIMENTAL TO THE
SLEEP.  HOW TO DEAL WITH A STATEMENT LIKE THAT?  I THINK IT
WAS GOOD TO AVOID THE ISSUE ENTIRELY, AS I DID BELOW.]

> you are doing fine mary

<mary> thank you for helping me

> now as you are able

> you may find
> that you can feel
> your chest rising and falling
> with each breath [OF COURSE SHE CAN]
> and since you can feel this
> you can RELAX even more deeply [NICE LOGIC, HUH?]
> now

[AT THIS POINT I WANTED HER TO GO BACK TO DREAMING, BUT
ON SOMETHING MORE PLEASENT!]

> you may wish

[SORRY TO INTERRUPT HERE, BUT I JUST WANTED TO POINT OUT
THAT I REALLY LIKE SAYING "YOU MAY WISH" BECAUSE ITS MUCH
LESS LIKE A COMMAND, AND PERHAPS IT IS EASIER FOR THE MIND
TO ACCEPT COMMANDS LIKE THIS]

> to MAKE A PICTURE of something else
> something even earlier in your life

> reassuring and comfortable
> take your time
> you may CLOSE YOUR EYES

<mary> my little sister and i playing tent in our room

> very good

> I will wait until you speak again

[ABOUT 2 MINUTES...]

<mary> ok

<mary> ok

<mary> k

[THE FOLLOWING STORY WAS PRETTY MUCH MADE UP ON THE SPOT.
I WAS DELIVERING THE PHRASES SLOWER AND SLOWER, IN ORDER
TO GET HER TO SLOW DOWN.]

[AT THIS POINT I WAS WONDERING IF I WAS REALLY GETTING
ANYWHERE.  I HAD A LOT OF SELF-DOUBT.  I NEEDED SOME
REASSURANCE.]

<mary> yes

> good

<mary> i am off to sleep

[BINGO!  WOW I WAS SO EXCITED!  OK I HAVE MUCH MORE
CONFIDENCE AND FAITH IN ALL THIS NOW!]

POSTSCRIPT

While I was typing notes, she came back online and wrote to me
that she tried to sleep, but could not stay asleep.  By the time
I saw that and responded, she had already left.  I still feel
good that she did get some bit of sleep and relaxation, and I
also believe that I could have quickly gotten her back into
trance and reinforced the idea of sleep WITHOUT EFFORT.

With that said, its 9:34am and I (yawn) feel kinda sleepy.  However,
I'm just going to get some coffee and look forward to the bright,
sunny Florida day.

Love and Peace,
David Stein
