Nested Loops can be done many ways. They can range from being very simple to very complex. There is not only a single right way to create a nested loops or a loop for that matter. I have found this to be one of the most useful tools in helping people change quickly and easily. So, with that said, I am going to go into the basics in creating a simple nested loops. As some may know I like to use confusion, but that is because it opens up sensory experience to a point where everything just goes in easly. However, that is not what this is about.

The first part to creating a loop is to know what you want to do. For instance, if a person has a hard time getting motivated. What work would you do in a situation such as this? This is the stuff you want somewhere or throughout the loop. Things like reframing, disassociation, association, anchoring, metaphors and future pacing are common things found in nested loops. Talk about what you are working with, talk about techniques and so on. This can be done either directly, indirectly or a combination of both.

For instance, what kind of things make them want something or want to do something? You do not need to know what they are, but only where you want to put it in the loop. This could be done by asking them directly or by describing things in a fashion that makes them want it and if you anchor it, then you can use that anchor to build a propulsion system. Propulsion systems are make things easy for them and you.

One of the the most common exercises for creating nested loops involves taking five stories and breaking them up at the points where you get the responses you want, then moving on to next story, finishing the fifth story and closing then the forth story, the third story and so on. However, they can be much smaller. For instance, if you want to make a loop out of a single thing so it becomes a positive process that leads towards solution instead of what was happening.

Do you want to know more? I offer hypnosis session and training in the Orlando, Florida area and more. So, if you are interested, then go ahead and find out more.

I have been writing stories for quite a while. Stories have been used for centuries to pass on information and I hope you will tell others about this. This is one of the coolest things one can play around with to make things easy for those so called “resistance” and I have found it enjoyable for myself as well as I hope you will also.

Let talk a little bit about “hypnotic language”, which I use very loosely in the first sense of the word. I remember one of my first clients. I was just getting good at using nested loops in this way. I used them other ways, but I did not know I was using them, because I never heard about it before. There are many ways to write and this is just one of them. Loops can be constructed many ways, but thats something from the other posts, if you have not read them, then this is a good time to go ahead and do so.

So, I was sitting there. They kept saying, I cannot put them into a trance. I said, You have to know what a trance is to know if I am not putting you in one right now, don’t you? However, that is not important, but what is important is paying attention to how your breathing, the rythum and how it changes, but not yet. First, I want to tell you something that is really interesting or atleast some seem to find themselves very interested in it even though it may not make sense at first, but thats the beginning of this sentence and others. Ok, many do not know what a trance is, but they thought they did and this is only one kind or a few of them at different times, several time at once or spread out. There eyes began to dialate, their breathing begins to slow down even more, they begin to blink slower and hold it longer. I said, it much more fun to find out what a trance is, for yourself than it would be telling you about it to just go in one or more.

Now, when putting people into a trance deeper, some mention attending to ones needs and the needs to go inside. However, that is not always the case and it the case you want. So, I was there at this conference. The seats are filled and this was one of the first times for me speaking to over 1,000 people. I remembered I forgot my notes at home, but I also remembered something someone told me that you are only doing one thing at a time, so if you need to, use your fingers. You can also use music either outside or have it go on inside. Theres this thing where you can use this as a way to get people in an audience to go deeper, easier and faster.

Back to the issue at hand or in hand, lol. Putting people into a trance even deeper and doing the work using nested loops. This is where it talking about technique either directly or indirectly and they will seem to just go in. First, know what you want to do. Thats also an anchor, lol. Next is the trance in which you are going in or putting them in. Which one do you want to start with and where is it going to go and what do you want the outcome to be? These are the things to ask yourself first, them them and then start going though ideas, but first use use whatever they give you and start your loop with that. However, there are many, many other ways, but that is an easy way to get used to using these.

So, as I remembered this I went out on the stage. It ended up being one of the best I have had. Even though that person was trying to argue, I just used what they were telling me. That is always a good place to start, but its more fun to start before that. Next thing they knew it was two hours later and I asked, its only 11:00 where did all the problems go, you were really trying to remember, lol. Forget about it, it’s ok. This is where you want to put in even more or not, but thats up to you.

There are just as many ways to connect the loops as there is “hypnotic language”, writing stories and structure it in such a way to achieve that purpose. These are only examples of ways it can be done. So, my question is what information will you pass on and how will you connect this all together?

Do you want to know more? One of the best way to get to know more is to just go for it. I provide many things and one of them is teaching how to do hypnosis in many ways, which way is right for you? No matter what field you are in or your knowledge about hypnosis, I teach you from where you are at. So go ahead and get the edge in your field by signing up for one of my classes, today.

Happy Trancing,
