How to Design a Series of Nested Loops in Hypnosis
Conversational Hypnosis is an art form that is based around the language you use to speak to others. Part of that language is going to include stories, telling stories in Conversational Hypnosis will be very powerful especially when you learn to do it using nested loops.
Nested loops can be done at four different levels; all are very similar in structure they just get more advanced as you go from basic to intermediate to advanced and finally master level. A nested loop is simply a way to tell stories that involves a variety of different stories that are told in series stopping at the climax of each story to start another.
When you reach the end of your set number of stories, usually between three and twelve, you will stop to add a direct suggestion or trance process. After that you will continue by finishing each of your stories in the reverse order so you begin the process and end the process with the same story.
When you use nested loops you will soon see that there will be a lot of things going on for both you and your listener. Your listener will be giving you their undivided attention, through which you will bypass their critical factor make suggestions and then bring them back from an altered state of mind.
You on the other hand have an overwhelming amount of work to do. You must have a stock of stories to tell and be able to modify each one to the person you are working with. You are also going to be using many of the past skills you have learned in order to make those stories the best stories you can.
These include emotional triggers, metaphors, ambiguous stories, pre-teaching hypnotic trance processes, embedded suggestions, future memories, seeding and post hypnotic suggestion protocol. All of these aspects will more than likely be included in the ways you tell your stories.
So now that you know how the structures of nested loops work you should learn a fail safe way to design them so you are ready whenever you need to use them. Just knowing the structure and what it is you need to have in the design is much different than actually creating a set of nested loops.
The first step in creating any of the nested loops is going to be that you will want to begin with the end in mind. The unconscious mind does not work in a linear and logical way, even though the structure of nested loops may look that way, you will need to start where the unconscious is ready to start.
The way you do this is to first realize what you want the conclusion of the situation to be. Once you have figured out where you want your nested loop to get you then your unconscious mind will be much more obliged to take you there, you have given it directions to its destination.
The next thing you will want to do in creating nested loops is to really imagine your audience. If you know who your story is intended for you will have a good idea of where they are starting from and what knowledge they do and don’t have. Understanding your audience will clue you into the problems they are facing and what they want out of life.
Nested loops are two fold they are created for a specific audience in mind and they are created to achieve set outcomes, these are things you need to remember as you go through this creative process.
To review the first two steps in this process you should now have a picture of your audience, a place to start, a purpose, a finishing place and end all in mind. These are all accomplished in the first two steps in creating nested loops if you have missed any of these you should go back and reread the last few paragraphs, it is important to understand exactly how to do this because it is a powerful tool you will use often.
The third step is going to be to over come the hurdles. Now that you have an outline of what you need to create you will also have a sense of what problems or hurdles you may face along the way. Identifying those now will be very helpful. Because you have your audience in mind and you know their problems, their dilemmas you can start to figure out ways to resolve those problems within your stories.
You can use your stories to set up ways to resolve their problems through the suggestion stage, use your stories as resources to build to those stories. You can think of your suggestions as the point of transformation, what do you want to do at this stage? This is important because after all your stories are finished you will merge right into the desired outcome.
The fourth step in creating nested loops is going to be brainstorming. This will be the processes of deciding in what order to tell your stories so they are most beneficial for your subject. You don’t have to tell your stories in order or even the same order every time.
Use your brainstorming phase to write down all the things and stories that come to mind that apply to the situation of the person you are working with. Not all the things you brainstorm will actually end up in your stories but a good amount will and it will usually give you enough ideas to complete your processes.
Remember that these are going to be your starting points for the rest of your structure. As you create stories with these ideas you will let each idea evolve and grow with your story. You should also be using these stories individually to test out on a variety of different people.
The fifth step in your creation of nested loops is going to be starting in the middle. This is not set in stone it simply means to find the story out of your set that inspires you most and start with that one. This is very, very important inspiration will lead you to whatever story is best to begin with in your nested loops.
The starting story has to be inspiring to you, go first, if you are telling it because you have to that will come through in your sub-communications and create the wrong environment for your session. The idea of using the inspirational story to start your nested loops will activate the creative processes in you unconscious and overall allow you more success in what you are doing.
Next you will fill in the blanks this is the sixth step. So basically you start with whatever story inspires you in the first place, as you tell it you come to a point where the second story is appropriate to start. When this time comes for your second story to start you will have formulated ideas for it through your inspirations from the first story.
This sounds a little impossible but as you are telling each story you will be thinking of all your resources in your skills and things you want and need to express will come to mind. This will fuel your stories and the themes you use with in them to help you resolve the problems at hand for your listener.
The seventh and final step in creating a nested loop is to actually use the creative loop. In order to do this you will need time to let your unconscious mind formulate and work through the things you will want to incorporate in your loops. If you don’t have time to sleep on this you can always use self hypnosis in order to clear your mind to make things come together easier. The point is to allow your mind the time to get the creative processes going.
In this whole process of creating nested loops you will need to become a natural story teller. This is important to be able to mold your set stock of stories, the ones you will use over and over again, and form them in different ways so they can be used in different ways for different things with different people. Many of your stories will come to you by way of instant inspiration.
The way to become a natural story teller is simply to practice. Practicing will help to condition the muscles in your mind to access the creative channels you need to be more at ease with this process. The main thing to remember in this whole process is that it is a creative process and you will eventually discover your own ways of going about it all. It is important that you take the time to figure out what works for you it will only make you stronger and your nested loops and hypnosis more powerful.
