They're natural partners aren't they?
I'm from the Jon Chase camp where direct hypnosis is nothing without intent... So if I truly intend hypnosis to happen, even making up a 100% improvised bullshit induction on the spot (with no rehearsed set of expectations - because I don't even know myself yet), then the expectation is automatically embedded in my subconscious communication - because of the intent.
Likewise, would JC convert a "pencilled-in possibility" without the embedded intent that is automatically/subconsciously communicated by laying down the expectancy?
Fish and chips, curry and rice, intent and expectancy.
Wowsers, Roy has a book for every topic.
We try so hard to make it by writing the amazing million-copies best-seller book - but Roy has his finger on the pulse... just write a million books.
All the best ideas are so simple you wished you'd thought of it first!
There are quite a few videos on YouTube of the sort of thing (if you just search New York Street Dancers). None of them really were filmed enough or picked up all the money collecting part!
In short, they perform dance moves, get a line of volunteers which is the finale for a guy to jump over, collect money for their art. This isn't a scam, but they work hard at peer pressure and are skilled at reframing the situation to encourage a much bigger payload than someone performing with hat on the floor to collect pennies. Perhaps the richer tourists are happy to hand over the cash for the experience, but I wasn't rich and still handed over cash and hated myself afterwards for doing so, even though I know better!
Format from my perspective of this group of guys is:
a) Impressive free display - Attract a crowd with some impressive dance moves and music
b) Build mass rapport - audience participation, encouraged to clap with the moves
c) Free audience participation display 'taster' - an example of pulling a member of the audience out with no comebacks - just fun, totally safe
d) Promise of something more special (the big finale) - cause/effect compliance of encouraging crowd to draw closer - reminds me of dodgy market trader dutch auctions!
e) Volunteers handpicked, quite aggressively plucked with no perceived choice - based on potential to have money (carrying cameras, bags) and with family friends. Also drew on rapport of the group, encouraging them to clap at the volunteer first before plucking, adding peer/social pressure
f) Many attempts at mass rapport, through comedy - self degrading humour, jokes about trusting black men, leaving your bags in a line unattended - and therefore, ultimately trust.
g) Following on from f) an honesty continuation with reciprocation - 'we're street performers, this is how we make a living, when it's over people tend to just walk away, so give us your money now!' type of thing. So they come round with collection bags beforehand.
h) re-framing and 'upping' the dollar - They try to make $20 the base unit by telling everyone that beggars get just a dollar, and that THEY even give $20 to beggars. The bags they come round with are huge. Again reframing the expectations - this isn't a hat for coins and loose change - it needs filling with 20s!
i) Celebration of big 'givers' - anyone who gives big money gets celebrated "50$ dollars every body, round of applause!!" - possibly plants, but probably just richer idiots than me. Again, reinforces giving 1$, 5$, 10$ as being tight, or insulting - peer pressure of giving them less than a beggar (even though that really isn't true)
j) Opportunity given for people in the line to leave - double bind: "stay for $20 - leave for $100" - again reinforcing $20 as the minimum offering, plus even more peer pressure at being brave and staying the distance. All this type of thing was chanted by all the performers at the same time - adding credibility and authenticity to the statement (this happened through out the show also to set that pattern).
h) Take money from the volunteers in a line (I was one plucked) before the final jump. I said, like an idiot, I'd give you the cash afterwards if I was impressed, instead of walking away from the double bind - peer pressure only delayed.
That's about is, the dancing was the first 5 minutes, and all the above with no action at all, probably took 15 minutes.
They took $20 from me, after highlighting me at the end and putting the focus on my 'promise'. I only had $20s in my wallet so felt compelled to give something. I didn't know that my Wife had thrown $5 into their oversize bag, so they got us twice!
I estimate that they took at least $300 for that half-hour set from around 40 people. More about peer pressure than putting people in waking trances, but I thought it was clever how they created that environment. If they had just been dancing, with a hat on the floor, they might have made maybe just a tenth of that, the techniques they used dramatically turned that around.
The video below I think is the same guys, only spooled through it though - my analysis from my memory/notes rather than this video.
Not a scam to the majority of onlookers...there's a group of impressive, back-flipping, black street performers who hang around at the end of Brooklyn bridge in New York - they are the absolute masters of turning a dollar-if-you're-lucky donation into 20 dollar notes (or more) from the vast majority of the crowd. It was so slick, I had to jot down everything I remembered about their process when I got back. Somehow, they managed to seriously dent my budget set aside for Eileen's Cheesecake down the road.
I've stumbled across Daniel Rechnitzer before now (universal intelligence, Oz). When he talks about the subconscious mind and hypnosis, he's bang on the money. But then he talks all sorts of weird stuff about superconscious, sort of like Ines Simpson on acid. The whole sales funnel thing seems a bit cult-ish, but there might be something online or a course/video there that connects with your lady for that spiritual connection through a hypnosis/sc setting.

I'm not recommending or endorsing - it just came to mind with your post!
I think I've told this one before, but relevant to the topic...with one of my first goes at hypnosis with a friend, I did an eye closure induction. All went great, and a did a motivational intervention with symbolism. He wanted to go in again and do something else, which caught me off guard and unprepared, so I just said, Ok, well er... same as before.... and I was focussing on myself, internalising and rehearsing my induction I got interrupted by "I can't open my eyes!". Does not get ANY easier than that. It's like, "can you hypnotise me"..."Yeah"....Gone.
Hi, just thought I'd leave one message. For no other reason than to boost Fable's active stats by about 25% :)
