What videos would be useful?

Agree with Kumar - tons of a lot of inductions out there...BUT, lots out there is filmed for the ego of the hypnotist (which is great for generating excitement etc) and tend not to offer great educational insights, especially with arm drops and shock inductions etc.

Translating Hypnotic Language

Well...avoid 'thaaaat's riiiiiiight!' like the plague is a good starter. Once someone, with a boundary of conversation a touch more than a client, asks you "why are you talking like such a dick?!", one tends to find other more natural affirmations!

Perhaps there's a market there for someone to bring out a new book: 
"Learn Conversational Hypnosis WITHOUT sounding like a total weirdo"

According to the big E himself in the foreword of Bandler/Grindler's Patterns... book - he wasn't that aware of the techniques he was employing and recommended doing your own thing anyway and not copying him. Never read a foreword that made me want to skip reading a book so much!

I use Ericksonian language patterns in my written texts quite a lot, for marketing etc, and I think it's easy to get by - but spoken? not so much. Consciously doing it, and sounding unconsciously fluid isn't the most natural thing in the world. Then at the other end, there are people who are totally fluent in Ericksonian speak, but are fluent in sounding weird also!

 

I read sales copy and overviews of stuff by some of the big hypno gurus, who are marketing their courses to people already in the know, and they still can't help themselves spurting out some of this crap. I can just imagine them at home:

"As you sit there, focussing on your dinner, you may find yourself noticing that the salt is out of my reach. And I wonder, if this will happen quickly, or slowly, or if it..."

"FFS, do you want me to pass you the salt?"

"Yes please, sorry."

So, generally speaking, I think 'conversational' hypnosis is one of the most paradoxical phrases in our whole arena.

Online addiction treatment ?
Daniel Oromaner, MBA, CCHt:
I simply made the point that IF it were possible to permanently cure someone with let's say an opioid addiction in 1-2 sessions, clients would beat a path to that person's door whether they were a good marketer or not!

That's what I'm disagreeing with - simply not so - especially when hypnotherapy/hypnosis has such a obstacle of preconceived beliefs from people (almost everyone) who do not know hypnosis enough to give it respect, never mind a niched protocol within the genre. Whose hypnotherapy website have you ever seen that doesn't include a whole section on explaining the subconscious mind or 'exploding the myths'? It's an uphill battle, even if you consistently turned water into wine in 1-2 seconds. People already believe in burgers mate :)

Ideomotor Typing (Modern Autowriting)

It happens to me a lot - I type in a random word in Google instead of the URL I was supposed to go to - more so if I'm having a conversation at the same time.

So if one was to check my search history and see 'wet tits vs dry tits, which is better?' we can all live comfortably knowing that my intention was to look up business accounting advice :)

Aspirin or Hypnosis?

So...diet, exercise and a touch of brain stuff. 

Sounds simple - gonna set my stall out right now, I'll have people queued up round the block in no time, and the bank balance will start its inflammation.

New Induction (Floating Candle)

I like it too.

Things that hit me (taking your idea and imagining myself getting creative with it):

1: Client to hold the candle (extra catalepsy - and a little bit spiritual, some people may join the the neural dots to weird and spooky phenomena already held in their memory banks - I sort of picture Derren Brown doing something like this in a dark spook room!)
2: see, hear, feel bit - since I saw Overdurf having a go at that phrase, I tend to want to avoid it now - so more interaction possibilities with feedback. Also, I'd wager for many, olfactory counts too with a candle for an extra sensory dimension
3: I really liked the 'You may not have noticed bit' - defo gonna use that in all sorts of inductions from now, I like that, it's cheeky. Sometimes I get stale and too focussed/repeaty - nice switch

Thanks for sharing.
