You have worked on a mind bending language but can’t get past the awkward language format. Or don’t you seem to see a practical application for MBL? Let you get help to clarify a few things that will help you be more effective in using MBL in conversation hypnosis.
What is the purpose of the MBL in hypnosis conversation?
The purpose of perverted language is to create mentally distorted ‘moments.’ MBM is a form of verbal interruption. The pattern you are trying to interrupt is your current thought process or lack of thinking to stimulate deeper Thinking by accessing new cognitive resources.
Begin by exploring the differences between ‘thinking’ and ‘thought.’ Thinking is the process your subconscious mind searches through life experiences to conclude. ‘Thought’ is the conclusion. ‘Thinking’ will stop.
Someone has a pre-thinking idea or belief; has an ‘idea’ about something and thereby closes the ‘thinking’ process to additional possibilities. This isn’t always bad unless it prevents a person from crossing over self-limiting beliefs towards a more effective solution.
The mind bending language is meant to disrupt ‘thinking’ and stimulate the ‘thought’ process by reshaping a person’s view of an idea or situation.
You often practice MBL using socially awkward language patterns such as “Who are you, are you happy?” or “When are you other than here? More efficient” These language patterns are confusing and interrupt them. But it’s rarely valuable for social encounters ‘in real life’.
Some practical forms of MBL:
When someone is stuck with a limited belief, you might reply, “How do you know it’s not true?” This question forces the subconscious to search for alternative hypotheses to answer it.
Examples for MBL:
Suppose someone feels overwhelmed and doesn’t move forward. You can also use a format like all the options you can think of and include options that you have not yet discovered. One thing you can do now is going forward?” This pattern broadened their perspective to known (and unknown) possibilities and narrowed it down to the only one they could implement.
Another example if someone is stuck with one approach, you can use framework agreements and follow-up questions to interrupt their patterns. “You are right that (x) is a way of doing (y); what other way is there?”
You see, these examples are not very confusing. But they stimulate the ‘thinking’ of the story.
Next time you train with someone for mind bending language, consider this. Aside from the awkward methods, you might have used in the past. And considering the practices, you now know. You might come up with a new way to use these language formats more effectively.
Mind Bending Language is one of the languages which are born out of Meta Model, Attention Shifting Coaching, and other language therapy techniques. Use questioning techniques that take advantage of language ambiguity to express its true meaning or other possibilities. However, the purpose of Mind Bending Language is not to confuse anyone. These are the only beneficial side effects. Its purpose is to change the subjects’ minds by opening their eyes to new possibilities.
