The Power of Emotion

The key to powerful NLP and hypnosis interventions…

The reason that we use NLP and hypnosis on ourselves or to help other people, is to help them change their subconscious programming. A great question to ask is “What factors go into making someone programmable?”

Hypnosis, NLP & Emotion

The Power Of Emotions

Hypnosis, obviously, is one. In hypnosis, people are more suggestible and they can change their subconscious programming. NLP contains many, many processes which we lead people through, which help them reprogram themselves.

But there’s another factor which can really boost the power of either one of those tools…

…Emotion

Emotion is Key for Permanent Changes

If you think about it, most of the times you’ve learned great life lessons have to do with emotion. Maybe you got inspired or incredibly determined. Negative programming can happen the same way. Phobias are usually programmed in the midst of an incredibly emotional experience.

So, what we want to do is to add emotions to our suggestions when we work with hypnosis. We want to use powerful emotions in our NLP processes. You’ll notice that, with NLP, almost every process includes eliciting a powerful emotion–positive, negative or both–within the process.

Of course, if you add emotion to hypnotic suggestions, it makes them much, much more powerful.

In the next video, we’ll get into how to get emotional states and amplify them so we can be as effective as possible.

  1. It makes sense that if you encourage emotions during hypnosis, those being treated will have a more powerful reaction. One of the best examples of the power of emotion in the responses of susceptible parties is the placebo effect, where a person believes they are being treated for an ailment, not given any actual treatment, and are still positively altered because they want to be, and believe that they will improve. It is possible, therefore, to see this article as encouraging subjects to harness the power of the placebo effect, a scientifically proven emotional response which can be tapped into with hypnosis.

    1. Yes,
      Any treatment method, including hypnosis has a placebo effect. It’s a good point. However, there have been several studies that show that hypnosis is not only the placebo effect. And I’m not convinced personally that the heightened programmability people have while experiencing emotion has any relation to the placebo effect. There is lots of information that any learning can be improved by pairing that learning with a strong emotion.

  2. Our past experiences create zillions of bits of data. Data is energy.
    What gives a memory priority is the intensity of emotional energy which envelops it. This can be acquired all at once or over time with repetition. This for example partly explains why a heroin addiction is more effective than a nicotine one. I see illness or disease as well as other intensely emotional characteristics such as artistic genius, psychic abilities and inspirations of all sorts and degrees and really all learning as results of the same processes.
    So how high can we go? Perhaps hypnosis is a great tool to get us there, to effect change in our world in much wanted ways. I think the odds are good. Thank you for your work, all.
