Can self-hypnosis help you to influence others? Yes.
Hypnosis has been used extensively for years to help people access traumatic past memories, improve memory, and replace old negative behavioral patterns with new ones. Hypnosis can also be a powerful asset in improving one’s social skills. And with better social skills you may find that you can wield more influence over others. We’re not saying you have to wield control over others like a tyrant. But with more control over your social habits you can be more persuasive and in many cases get more of the things that you want.
So how exactly would that work?
There have been many studies about how people can benefit from the effects of hypnosis. Think about how many things you think about and do automatically. For example, if you are a smoker, you may reach for a cigarette whenever you feel a teeny-weeny bit of stress and not even realize it. Likewise, you may be in a social situation and automatically look away whenever someone makes eye contact. If these behaviors are rooted in subconscious beliefs rather than your conscious mind, hypnosis can help you move past the conscious mind to tackle the subconscious roots of your behavior.
Hypnosis can help you to show less visible anxiety, improve listening skills, know when to direct attention toward yourself and make proper eye contact. Body language plays a huge role in how people see you. If you have high visible anxiety, others may perceive you as being untrustworthy. If your listening skills aren’t up to par you may inadvertently come off as being disinterested in meeting new people. The opposite is also true in that if you speak of yourself too much in conversation the other person may think you are selfish. If your eyes have a habit of looking anywhere else but on the person you’re addressing you may be seen as someone with a mistrustful nature.
Utilizing hypnosis to strengthen your social skills will allow you to improve your self-esteem thereby improving your self-image which will in turn be seen in a more positive light by other people you encounter. However this is not something that is limited to simply meeting new people. Being seen in a more positive way can help you land a better paying job or help you advance further in your career or even improve your relationship.
To achieve the success of hypnosis, you can visit a hypnotherapist in person. He or she will sit with you and guide you into a relaxed hypnotic state, then make positive suggestions for you to apply to your own behaviors. There is no use of swinging pendulums, medicine, or drugs. It is simply you and your therapist in a calming environment while you learn to relax enough for the therapy to be successful.
