Create metaphors like Milton Erickson

The mind-boggling hypnotic power that religions, governments and cults use to propel key lessons, communications and instructions deep into people's unconscious minds...

The Practical Guide to Metaphor and Advanced Metaphor If you’ve read anything about hypnosis, you probably already know about the legendary hypnotherapist Milton Erickson. Read a book by or about Erickson and you’ll feel two things – awe and confusion. You feel awe because of the incredible things Erickson was able to accomplish, often just by telling a story. You feel confusion because you (or the authors) seem to have little idea of how he did it! But it’s not just Erickson and a few other geniuses who have used storytelling as a powerful form of hypnotic communication. Religions, governments and cults (some good, some evil) all use storytelling as a way to hammer messages deep into people’s minds. Parables from the bible, Sufi stories, fairy tales, Native American storytelling, Norse sagas, Indian Puranas (stories of wisdom), children’s fables, government propaganda – you name ’em, they have stories. These aren’t just random stories. They’re often used to teach folks valuable moral principles and life lessons. And they’re stories designed to have a specific effect on the listener. These stories powerfully engage the conscious mind and the unconscious mind at the same time. Engaging the mind at both the levels allows you to transmit ultra-compelling communications deep into the mind to make them permanently powerful. 

You too can harness the mind-blowing power that religions, governments, cults, cultures and traditions use to drive important messages, lessons, moral structures and behaviors deep into people’s minds

Hi Keith,

I listened to your Metaphor CD and read the workbookIt’s really enjoyable! Clear, simple and easy to understand and it definitely flows from one section to another. It was also a good reminder for me of the simple, yet profound NLP techniques that can be used with the metaphors.I hope you teach more and put some published books out or something so you can share your talents with the world ;)Talk to you later (look forward to the next parcel!)
