Always a place for hypnosis in coaching and business
For the past 15 years or so I have dabbled with Hypnosis; not the theatrical kind of turning people into cavorting chickens, but the deep relaxation style.
I first experimented with self hypnosis for pain relief. A long induction and a descent into a meditative state with the suggestions taking the place of destructive medications.
Over time I was able to work with others who would benefit from my boring story with descent to relaxation that made up my induction, then to be followed by post hypnotic suggestions to suit the occasion.
More recently I have worked with short inductions (seven or eight words) with surprising results. Imagine if I was to shake your hand and without releasing your hand to give you my elevator pitch. My wife as a massage therapist carries this a little further by imparting a hand massage before releasing the would-be client"s hand.
I practise my skills with the local Meetup Group, the Salt Lake Hypnosis Society. Tonight we are looking at Power Words.
There are hundreds of Meetup Groups in the Sandy UT area alone. www.meetup.com
I belong to eight different Groups meeting over a month. Strangely, people tend to ask "What do you do?" I help people find the home of their dreams.
And, do you know? There are no other Real Estate Agents there.
"Watch my hand, and you will be very relaxed..."
