Can certain words be used to trigger a trance?

Have you ever noticed how some words will cause you to have memories of a time or place or person?  What if you knew what these trigger words were for other people?  Could you use those words to purposefully trigger a memory or flashback?  Is this commonly used in covert hynosis?

I believe this could be something simliar to a hypnotic trigger, yet not in the truest since of the word. Things happen to us as we grow up and if it is something traumatic, then it will most likely stick in our memory.


if something is seen, or read, or heard during this event, The brain may latch on to it as well and then later you see, or read, or hear the same thing. This causes a memory flashback, or recall if you will. This is just my own personal opion though.


I have read of cases where certain scents of a perfume or some other smell also brought about flashbacks. So maybe this can help you.

In NLP we call this an anchor.  And if you know how the anchor was set to elicit a certain state you could certainly fire off that anchor again and get that flashback you are looking for.


A related story to that when I was in my early 20s working in the computer field I was handed a sheet of paper explaining how it was against company policy to give hitch hikers a ride while in a company vehicle or on company time.  I read the paper and handed it back to the HR person so she could give it to the next person to read.  She bit my head off, because she thought I was handing the paper back to her in protest that I would not follow this policy.  When I explained to her that I did not see her handing this paper out to anybody else and that I assumed she just printed the one copy and wanted to share it with everyone her reply was well I just wanted to "nip that in the bud"  now any time i hear someone say "nip that in the bud"  my mind goes back to how she yelled at me for no good reason.
