You can see that he uses the hypnotic confusion technique quite extensively, as well as hypnotic commands and a lot of NLP stuff and an occasional pattern interrupt here and there.
The woman on stage is a good demonstration subject, because even though the camera points at her from an angle, you can still see her eye movements.
Now I transcribed the explicit hypnotic trance induction to stop smoking that he used with the woman on stage for you here, but keep in mind that much of it is connected and references things he did and said prior to actually starting with this induction (and some things which will will reference after the overt hypnotic trance session is over).
I’d like for you to notice something
that you have an unconscious mind
that does all of this for you
and in the same way
as you discovered a different way of being
a better you
when under pressure
better than smoking
there you go
it’s happening already, isn’t it?
I wonder if those eyes will close all the way
to allow you to complete
rooting out everything
there you go
routing out every element
every association and every connection
every need and every desire
so that you can learn fully and completely
that as a non-smoker you are so much more
there you go
and everything you used to think smoking gave you
is a tiny little insect of a thing
compared to the amazing things you get to experience now instead.
You know what I mean by that, don’t you?
And I really don’t know how long this process will take to complete
nor will you
because 20 years of smoking
may require some time to go through and process fully
but then again
you managed with the pressure
which was pretty intense
you managed that pretty quickly
So I guess there is some part of you that knows something
Just rest there for a while
and notice it happening.
You don’t need to do anything
other than wait for your eyes to open,
that will be your signal that it’s done.
there’s really no hurry.
I will talk elsewhere
but it’s of no importance what I’m saying
it’s of more importance that you continue and complete the process that you’re in right now
Does that make sense?
Time is of no meaning at this point.
When you listen to this hypnotic induction, make sure that you also pay close attention to his intonation and watch what is happening on stage. You can see that he is using anchors and nonverbal gestures, and they are just as important as the words that he uses.
