POWERFUL HYPNOTIC SUGGESTIONS Powerful hypnotic suggestions are the key to having a successful session. One option for this success is ideomotor questioning, which is highly beneficial with suggestion validation. Keep in mind that subconscious validation does not automatically guarantee you will experience success but it does provide you with confirmation that you are using the suggestion the right way. To validate a suggestion, you can ask questions such as those listed below: Is the hypnotic suggestion being made an acceptable one? Will the suggestion give work and be effective? How quickly will the suggestion work? Is there something else that I should do to achieve the results wanted? Another important part of using powerful hypnotic suggestion is by keeping good records. Keeping good records is important for a number of reasons specific to ideomotor questioning. For starters, questions need to be very specific and appropriate, writing them down before they are asked. Therefore, we recommend you writer down questions prior to asking them. Just remember to write one down at a time since following questions will typically depend on the previous questions. Secondly, you also want to avoid repeating, asking the same questions over and over. Third, with ideomotor questioning for your hypnosis session, you will be going through a lot of questions and answers that will prove to be valuable to you down the road. For this reason, your questions should be designed as a future reference. If you do not write them down with good record keeping, you will not be able to remember them. Finally, powerful hypnotic suggestions and keeping a written record go hand-in- hand, having a positive and lasting effect on the subconscious mind. One option to determine the reasons why your subconscious mind responds better with written records is to conduct a questioning session for this specific reason. For this, you will be asking a tremendous amount of questions, allowing the subconscious mind time to reveal its own dynamics. Now, just as ideomotor questioning and keeping good records of questions for your hypnosis session can be beneficial; there are some things with suggestions that can actually make things worse. In fact, some suggestions can do harm. Any flawed suggestion or suggestions that work against the subconscious mind and not with it will only make things far worse. With this, you typically see errors the “I can’t” problem. With hypnosis, you want to stay away from impossibilities, the “I can’t syndrome”. Remember that with hypnosis suggestions, nothing horrible is going to happen to you such as growing a third eye. Therefore, trying to achieve something that is possible to include losing weight, stopping smoking, and so on, will not do any physical harm to you. However, when you try to achieve the impossible, your subconscious mind’s acceptance of the hypnosis will be blocked. Therefore, realize that hypnosis suggestions should be geared toward you achieving things that are possible. Another consideration in trying to use powerful hypnotic suggestions is that placebo effects can make things worse when under negative conditions. However, when used in the right way, placebo effects can be a positive thing. The challenge is that when using placebo, the person being hypnotized would generally need to be naïve, not being aware of what will take place with the hypnosis. The bottom line is to create powerful hypnotic suggestions; you need to follow some simple guidelines as provided in this article. By taking the appropriate steps, you will have far more success in overcoming the very thing you are trying to conquer. Rather than shy aware from the benefits of hypnosis, simply learn about suggestions and the appropriate way to form questions. You will be amazed at how the ideomotor method of questioning will make such a huge difference in your success with hypnosis.
