Welcome to Episode 42 of Brain Software with Mike Mandel. This podcast has to win a prize for the most loud and irrelevant introduction EVER.
Here are the show notes for this episode:
- We discuss the “as if” frame and how you can apply it to your life. When you behave as though you already have the result you’re looking for, things get incredibly awesome.
- We address a question from a listener who’s interested in using hypnosis to lengthen a bone. Is this even possible? It’s a fascinating question without a doubt.
- Mike often talks about treating most subjects in a single session. So when should you use more than one session? Hear what Mike has to say about it.
- Erik sent us in a fun story about using something similar to the “word salad” Erickson used in Bandler and Grinder’s book “Patterns of the Hypnotic Techniques of Milton H. Erickson”. In Erik’s case, he used this same idea to build rapport with his young son who would mumble-speak (for lack of a better term). What a great story!
- Chris handles a question from Mike about how to deal with a four year old child who has suddenly become an authority on everything.
- It’s the final week to register for the Architecture of Hypnosis live class with Mike. If you can’t make it to this class, there is a TON of incredible content (plus hours and hours of bonus material) available in the online hypnosis course.
- Next up – we handle a question from Ron about how to tell if a hypnosis subject is sleeping or in trance. This is actually a pretty common question, so you’ll probably enjoy the discussion around it.
- Mike reveals a really great Meta Model question you can use to help people make changes. You’ll love this one!
Empowering Question: What is your greatest talent or skill, and how are you going to use it for the benefit of others? What is your greatest weakness and how will you minimize its effect on your life.
Closing metaphor: The story of Dale and his basement apartment.
