Most people absolutely hate getting fat. Nobody ever tries to get fat. Except maybe a few actors who need to get into character. Once, Milton Erickon had a patient who was convinced she couldn't change her weight. Milton told her to purposely gain weight. She thought he was crazy, but she did any way. Through his hypnotic genius, he convinced her that losing weight wasn't really that much different than gaining weight. This, of course, isn't true for most people. But Milton recognized her weight problem was tied to feeling an absolute lack of control over ANY part of her body. For that particular patient, he recognized that once she proved to herself that she could gain weight on purpose, losing weight on purpose would be the next logical step. This was one of the reasons why Erickson was such a genius. He could talk to somebody and know the PRECISE detail of their unique problem. And give them a quick, custom made solution, all wrapped up in a messed up story. But when you think about gaining and losing weight in general, it's really a BEAUTIFUL system. It's kind of hard to see that now, but think about ancient humans. Whenever we saw food, we ate as much as we could. And our bodies would naturally store the extra energy. The more energy we had stored in the tank, the longer we could go without needing to fill up again. This is very much like a family on a long road trip. The bigger the tank, the more energy they can store. Whenever they see a gas station, they stop and fill up. In our natural, ancient habitat, adding to our energy stores is the same as spending from our energy stores. We GAIN fat just as easily as we BURN fat. Of course, this is based on a lot of other circumstances that aren't very common today. The food was much more natural. And we were much more active. But this metaphor, of finding, storing and using energy, can be found everywhere. The entire EXPLOSION in population after the Industrial Revolution was MAINLY because we finally figured out HOW to use fossil fuels. Which represented a MASSIVE AMOUNT of energy. Another HUGE discovery in human history was the use of fire. Another way to get MASSIVE energy out of wood and other burnable material. But the most METAPHYSICAL form of energy is money. You can make, it you can store it, you can spend it. The more you have, the longer you can go without needing more. This is the main DRIVING FORCE behind all human inventions. The more you get in THAT game, the more you can fulfil your human purpose. Get Started: http://mindpersuasion.com/money-brain/
There’s an idea in physics called “sympathetic resonance.” It’s commonly used to attempt to explain the law of attraction or similar ideas. In physics, it’s pretty simple. If you have two pianos in one room, and you bang on one middle C, the other middle C will begin to vibrate. Since they both have the same natural resonance frequency, one C vibrating will send sound waves through the air and make the other C vibrate. Even if you stop the first string from vibrating, the second will still vibrate. This is also how we hear sounds of different frequencies. Inside our ears are a whole bunch of tiny fibers. Each resonate at a slightly different frequency. So when you hear a mix of different frequencies, each individual frequency vibrates a different tiny fiber in the ear. Mathematically, this is called a “Fourier transform.” By taking one wave component and breaking it down into the individual components. But when sympathetic resonance is applied to metaphysics, it kind of misses the point. Meaning when you “vibrate” at a certain “energy level” the “universe” will also vibrate. So when you “vibrate” money, the “universe” will respond. As a metaphor, this sounds pretty cool. But as a strategy to get money, it sucks pretty bad. For example, two people “vibrating” to get $100 will each have COMPLETELY different ideas what that means. Or even money in general. However, you CAN apply the idea of sympathetic resonance to other individuals. This is kind of what happens when people “click” when they first meet. The language to describe this even sounds like the physics of sound waves. They say they are on the same “wavelength” for example. This is fantastic when it happens spontaneously. It seems so rare because we rarely look inside our own minds and objectively examine our own emotions. We just kind of bounce around and “resonate” however we resonate. When we happen to meet somebody that resonates at the same wavelength, it seems like a wonderful chance meeting. But you can EASILY learn how to read people, and know EXACTLY how they are resonating. You can read the situation, read their non-verbal communication, and know EXACTLY what is happening inside their mind. Then when you describe that in specifically vague, powerfully hypnotic language, they will feel as though you are reading into their soul. Even better, you can read how they are feeling, and then use very subtle cause-effect language to build a very COMPELLING future. Making them feel better than they have in a LONG time. And they’ll automatically associate that feeling with YOU. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/cold-reading/
Resonance has always been a fascinating subject to me. There's a story of soldiers walking across a bridge in a cadence that unfortunately matched the resonance frequency of the bridge and collapsed it. They unsuccessfully tried to reproduce this on Mythbusters. Unsuccessful not because it's not possible, but because they can't exactly send a bunch of humans across a bridge. Instead, they tried to do it with little robots, and they could never quite get them walking in perfect cadence. But if you've ever swung on a swing, you know perfectly well the power of resonance. You can get pretty high with very little effort. We use plenty of resonance metaphors when talking about human connection. When you meet somebody and you "click." Or you are on the same wavelength. Or on the same page. Or are in sync. These are all words to describe two waveforms that are similar. In music, they call this harmony. There are very distinct mathematical relationships between notes that "sound right" together. It's amazing that things as indescribable as emotions can be triggered by something that is mathematically precise. A major chord progression creates happy feeling. A minor chord progression creates a sad feeling. There is no way any of us can describe those inner emotions accurately. Poets have been trying for thousands of years. Sure, a few can come close. That something as wonderful and indescribable as emotions can be triggered with external sounds that obey strict laws of mathematics is fascinating. From the outside in, it makes perfect sense. From the inside out, it's a mystery. This isn't just true in music. This is true in storytelling and human communication. And just like you can create mathematically precise sounds that create indescribable inner emotions, you can do the same with language. The structure of language is just as precise as the mathematics of music. Create the right set of language patterns, and evoke whatever inner emotions you like. Emotions of happiness, motivation, desire and courage. Learning how to do this may be one of the most rewarding things you ever do. Find Out How: http://mindpersuasion.com/public-speaking-hypnosis/
