The Power of Covert Hypnosis by Alan Tutt

Where isrepparttar greatest need for Power in your life? For most people, it is in persuading others to go along with our ideas. Whether we are trying to sell a product or service to a prospect, trying to discipline our children, trying to convince our boss to give us a raise, or trying to seduce that beautiful stranger, a greater degree of Power will help us achieve our goals much easier.

In one respect or another, we are trying to sell someone on an idea in practically every situation of our lives. If we could improve our ability to controlrepparttar 126243 situation, our effectiveness as a person would go up considerably, and we would be a more powerful person.

Logic will not always win, even when logic is on our side. I'm sure you've been inrepparttar 126244 situation where every deciding factor was in your favor, yetrepparttar 126245 other person still would not go along with your plan. Sometimes we take this as a rejection of ourselves,repparttar 126246 other person simply did not like us. Sometimes we feel that trust wasrepparttar 126247 issue to blame, or mayberepparttar 126248 issue was fear of some sort or another.

The human mind is a very mysterious system. There are so many factors which govern a person's behavior, and so many variables which we are almost never aware of, that trying to predict exactly what will cause a person to accept our proposal is usually a guaranteed way to fail.

But we don't have to predict what a person will do. We only have to influence their decision so that they are more likely to do what we want them to do, and our success rate will be better than it was before. In any complex system, a small change can sometimes have dramatic results!

In our study ofrepparttar 126249 mind, we find thatrepparttar 126250 subconscious mind, that part which is outside of our conscious control, is very suggestible. What's more,repparttar 126251 subconscious mind is also far more in control of our actions and behavior than our reasoning, conscious mind. For those of us who look for any and all means to achieve our goals, there is a hint of Power in this knowledge.

What if we could find a way to influencerepparttar 126252 subconscious mind ofrepparttar 126253 person we are trying to win over to our point of view? If we could find a way to suggest torepparttar 126254 other person's subconscious mind that they want what we are offering, and want it with a fierce desire, then our goal of persuading them will be much easier.

Advertisers have long studiedrepparttar 126255 methods of influencingrepparttar 126256 subconscious mind. You have probably heard ofrepparttar 126257 experiments with subliminal messages played in movie theaters. A whole industry grew up aroundrepparttar 126258 concept of subliminal messages to help a person change their behavior and their habits. Whilerepparttar 126259 results are generally disappointing to many who have triedrepparttar 126260 products offered,repparttar 126261 disappointment was as much to do withrepparttar 126262 general nature ofrepparttar 126263 suggestions buried inrepparttar 126264 material as it was due to any other factor.

Another industry has gained much popularity inrepparttar 126265 last several years. This industry has grown up around a new technology of understanding and manipulatingrepparttar 126266 mind. This technology is called NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). NLP teaches us that most people access different areas ofrepparttar 126267 mind while performing some basic physical actions that you can identify. Using this information, you can tell if a person is remembering an actual event that took place or if they are making up a story to cover up what really happened.

First Aid For The Soul

A Model ofrepparttar dysfunctional, unconscious human psyche. A way through, from confusion to consciousness.

By CliveTaylor


Many people are lost and unhappy, with no clear sense of how to regain access to their true selves. Life seems too big, confusing and fragmented.

The following model of how our unconscious psyche works is based on extensive client-centered, therapy-based experience, backed up with years of personal research intorepparttar 126242 nature of consciousness.

The Model

Fromrepparttar 126243 very earliest time in our lives, we experience a range of situations and “inputs” to our experience of life. These experiences come in many forms: Positive and life enhancing, through to extremely abusive.

As this model is ofrepparttar 126244 dysfunctional psyche we will concentrate onrepparttar 126245 negative ones.

Abuse comes in many forms: Physical, sexual, emotional, spiritual and, possiblyrepparttar 126246 worst, abuse ofrepparttar 126247 sense of wonder ofrepparttar 126248 miracle of life. Abuse includes lack of real attention and being “delighted-in”, barrenness of environment (physical, emotional and “spiritual), neglect and abandonment.


Much of this happens to us before we have any intellectual or verbal concepts or understandings of howrepparttar 126249 world is and our place in it. So we create, totally unconsciously, “feeling-images” ofrepparttar 126250 world.

These feeling-images have no logic or rationality to them, but are whatrepparttar 126251 world is to us at this stage. These images are created very quickly, very early on.

Ifrepparttar 126252 experiences that have created these images continue, they reinforce and bed-inrepparttar 126253 imagery.

Belief structures (ideas of howrepparttar 126254 world is) begin to gather and build inrepparttar 126255 psyche, to make “sense” ofrepparttar 126256 feeling-images, and to bury them deep, away from our awareness, as they are usually too painful to leave exposed.

Our psyches isolate them in a way similar to an oyster isolating a painfully intrusive grain of sand. We suppress and forget them as completely as we can. (If we are willing, these feeling-images can be just as beautiful a gift-pearl to our intentions for personal growth, later in life!)

Our survival mechanism:

There is a part of our being that nature has set up to look after us. With complete and tireless diligence it followsrepparttar 126257 instructions we gave it, unknowingly, from that feeling-imagery, long ago.

It doesn’t matter how old we are, or how “successful” we seem to be, this isrepparttar 126258 place from where we operate our lives.
