Does this sound familiar to you? You’re sitting around talking politics with a friend.
And before you know it, you’re both getting very defensive over your political preferences… and things are getting heated.
Have you ever wondered how politicians manage to evoke such strong emotions in us?
How they get us all fired up as we defend them – even when it’s not always in our best interests?
In this article, you’ll discover how they manage to tap into the raw but ready power of hypnosis for political persuasion.
But before we roll on, let’s take a look at the elephant in the room, okay?
The one that’s dividing many people right now.
We know politics is a touchy subject for many people. So we’ve done our best to remain as unbiased as possible.
We’ve got a wide range of views here at the Hypnosis Training Academy. Just as you all do. And we’re respectful of the wide range of perspectives.
At the same time, it’s difficult for anyone not to have an agenda, and we can probably all agree that most politicians do too. (HINT: Knowing this will help you spot their agenda.)
So here’s the skinny. You’re about to embark on a whirlwind tour of hypnosis being used in politics that will open your eyes up to the political persuasion that’s all around us.
Please keep your hands and feet in the vehicle at all times.
(Queue up the clanking sound of a rollercoaster inching its way up the first drop.)
Okay, where were we? Oh yeah, we we’re talking about how politicians have programmed us to defend them, even when it’s not in our best interest.
As you make your way through this article, you’ll come across a secret tactic that politicians like Ronald Reagan “stole” from the Hollywood Insiders playbook.
This tactic, when used correctly, has the power to secretly shape and shift a person’s thoughts in an instant.
NOTE: Milton Erickson was legendary when it came to this technique. Heck, NLP creators Richard Bandler and John Grinder wrote ENTIRE volumes about this technique.
But let’s set the stage for how powerful this technique is before we crack on.
Imagine this. You’re a politician running for office. You’re standing on the debate stage face-to-face, toe-to-toe, with the toughest opponent you’ve ever come across.
You can feel the stage lights beaming on your face. You start to worry that they’re gonna drag you through the mud.
BOOM! You remember, that you’ve got a secret weapon up your sleeve. No amount of mud slingin’ can stack up against it.
So you unleash the hounds with this powerful, effective hypnotic technique. And before you know it, you’re tossed into the center of a media storm.
