Dark NLP forbidden patterns
This article is about the Dark Side of Hypnosis. It is a taster just how far you can stretch the boundaries of what is possible using hypnosis.
From ancient times right through to the 21st Century we have been bombarded with tales of the dangers of forbidden knowledge. Whether we are talking about Icarus who flew to close to the sun and had his wax wings melt or Anakin Skywalker whose rage allowed him to be seduced and eventually turned to the dark side as Darth Vader.
The reality though is it is too easy to fall prey to a whole lot of nasty stuff if you bury your head in the sand and pretend that hypnosis is just a therapeutic tool to help your clients build better lives. By being aware of the potential, the dangers and the tools of the dark side you are better able to protect yourself and those around you as well as find some great positive uses for this material as well.
It is only those that live and work in ignorance that are susceptible to flying too close to the sun or allowing their rage and hate consume how they use their skills.
In two days I will be doing a webinar with Kenrick Cleveland where he will spill the beans on the Dark Side of Hypnosis. So let me tell you a little bit about him and why he is the only person that I will plead with to run a promotion for me.
The Dark Side
Kenrick is known as the guy that took NLP and Hypnosis out of the therapy room and in to the real world. For over thirty years he has been developing material for sales, business and practical applications.
I knew of Kenrick and heard about his Max Persuasion Seminars but the first product of his I bought was called the Dark Side. I was blown away by it.
At the time I was work as an NLP Trainer caught in a trap. I had a load of material that was unconventional and different from the usual NLPness that the trainers were waving about. I had yet to break out of the rigid self-imposed boundaries that NLP community have built. At the time I was trying to run certified NLP course with material that I thought was a sham but I was doing it because everyone was telling me that was what NLP was.
