It’s very easy to learn embedded commands, in fact you might be surpirsed to know that you and people around you already use them without even thinking. Embedded commands however are attributed to NLP and more recently conversational hypnosis.
In the first part of this post I will give you an understanding of what embedded commands are and their basic use. In the second part of the post I will go into more details an nuances of embedded commands PLUS I will include some audio which will allow you to hear how they sound in action. You will also get some practice exercises.
What are they?
So what is an embedded command? Well quite simply put, they are almost like trojan horse statements. In other words they are commands hidden in a sentence disguised as a statement. But before we go any further lets look at the difference between a question and command. Do you know what the difference is? It’s all in the tonality.
When you ask a question the tonality at the end of the question goes up. When you give a command the tonality at the end goes down. Say this out loud as a question “Can you come here?”. Now say it as a command. Can you hear the difference?
So what is the point of using embedded commands?
It all comes down to how we process language in the subconcious. On one level using embedded commands softens the command and makes the recipient more open to complying with the request. Take for instance the previous example where you said “Can you come here.” We could have said “Come here” but that may have triggered some resistance.
On an even deeper level the subconscious mind processes conversations out of conscious awareness. In that the person may act on the suggestion without any conscious intervention. That is, direct communication with subconscious mind.
Now that you have an understanding of what embedded commands are and what they do, it’s time to begin learning how to use them in everyday life to influence, persuade and hypnotize.
To create the embedded command we have a PART A and a PART B. The PART A is a softener, that distracts conscious mind from PART B which is the command. So lets look at what we can use as the PART A. To get you started here is a list of softners:
- Can you..
- A person can..
- You don’t have to..
- It’s important to..
There’s many, many more but lets get started with these.
Now lets start with a basic command. In this example we will use “Feel Relaxed”. When we combine the softener and the command we get:
- Can you..feel relaxed
- A person can..feel relaxed
- You don’t have to..feel relaxed
- It’s important to..feel relaxed
Remember there is a command tone down at the end of the embedded command. BUT, I’ve left out one important thing, and you will be able to hear it in the Audio Course component of this post that I have included below.
