Negative Emotion

So many times the simple truth is that a simple anchor of states can assist a person in releasing a negative emotion. So what is an anchor and how can we use it? An anchor is an external stimulant that triggers an internal response like a feeling. Have you ever heard a song that made you feel a certain way? Of course you have and we have other external events that trigger internal responses as well.

So how do we do this? Set the negative anchor first by having the person remember or experience the negative emotion or feeling while pressing on the first nuckle of the left hand.

Next set an opposite emotion on the little nuckle on the same hand. Note you should set the positive emotion or feeling a couple times.

Make sure you break state in between and test the anchors prior to do the mixup.

Then fire both anchors at the same time crosswiring them and have them attempt to recall the emotion that they used to have. 

If you have never set anchors or done anchor work then I suggest you read more about it prior to messing with them. For professionals that have worked with anchoring then this should be enough detail to give you ideas on how to use them more.

Success as a Hypnotherapist

When it comes to being a successful hypnotist what would you consider to be the most important thing to learn?  I have watched several good hypnotist make it through fantastic training and they get good results but they do not make it as a Hypnotherapist or in business. If you are able to get 100% success with your clients will you make it?  A big part of being a successful hypnotist is being able to market your product. Asking for referrals from successful clients is something I have noticed that a lot of hypnotist are not doing. Word of mouth is the best advertising but for some reason a lot of people are not taking advantage of it. Make sure to ask you clients for advertising and referals. Make sure to be able to discuss hypnotism at any time and wear things that lead people to ask about hypnosis. Buttons, name badges or anything that might start a conversation on hypnosis is a good idea. Advertising is expensive so look for alternative ways to advertise yourself and your product. Press Releases are free and an easy thing to do. Write articles for newspapers and get out and let people know what you are doing. Do not be timid from the medical field because they like what you are doing as well.

Mystically yours,
