Get hypnotized right now!
I want to show you a really interesting technique to hypnotize you. It is known as the Betty Erickson technique, as she devised it to hypnotize himself. Milton Erickson, Betty’s husband, is someone I have repeatedly referred to in my work as a renowned hypnotist and psychiatrist and someone whose work seems to hypnotize me all the time. This hypnotizing technique is entirely attributed to her.
Hypnotize yourself Betty Erickson Method:
This method of hypnotizing yourself is based on the following premises and ideologies. While there are a number of counterexamples to these notions, they will be valuable in understanding and using this method to hypnotize yourself.
We think of our thoughts in sights, sounds, and feelings.
When we think in images, we mean the external things we see and the internal images we create. This includes remembered images (“What is your bedroom like?”), Constructed images (“What would it look like if it were redecorated?”), As well as the real things we see about ourselves.
When we think of sounds, these are the things we hear and the internal sounds we create. This includes remembered words or sounds (“Think of your favorite pop song”), imagined words or sounds (“Imagine that song sung by someone else”), and it also includes your internal dialogue, as well as all real, real themes, sounds. live around us.
Third, there are the things we feel. They can be real or imagined physical sensations. Can you imagine being by the sea and paddling in the cool sea?
Most of us use one of these ways of thinking more than the others; although each of us uses all three. Since this is often the case, a person who “thinks” in images would not be better hypnotized just by visualizing.
Stereotypical images of hypnotists holding watches or other fixation devices for clients to look at are the result of many misunderstandings about hypnosis. I, for one, have long ago banished myself from my velvet tuxedo jacket and watched more modern methods of hypnotic induction with a chain. The experience of hypnosis is typically inward focused in which we withdraw from the environment around us and direct our attention inward. This technique for hypnotizing yourself is doing it even more.
