The Pattern

1. Identify the current state. What state has this person accessed? What state of mind have they entered into? Their stale of body? Their state of emotion?

2. Alter some significant factor of the state. Change any "driving" submodality in VAK modalities. Listen to that voice as Donald Duck speaking. Hear it as if it came from a distance. See it in black-and-white, etc.

3. Interrupt. Doing almost anything new, different, weird, or unexpected will interrupt a state. Stand on your head up against a wall. Use the "T" hand signal for "time-out." Shift to a sexy tonality. Look up in the sky, and ask, "Is that Halley's comet?" State your telephone number backwards.

A good pattern interrupt will jar consciousness so that it cannot continue with its current internal representations and physiology. If you journal your states (we have a process for this in the chapter on states), you have an excellent opportunity for noticing the natural pattern interrupts that occur in your life. Because our states constantly get interrupted and altered, knowing, and having access to, several good "pattern interrupts" enables us to stop some states from becoming too powerful or overwhelming.

Hynotism and Self Hypnosis

HYPNOTISM is by no means a new art. True, it has been developed into a science in comparatively recent years. But the principles of thought control have been used for thousands of years in India, ancient Egypt, among the Persians, Chinese and in many other ancient lands. Miracles of healing by the spoken word and laying on of hands are recorded in many early writings.
