Hypnotic Foot Stick (With Secret ‘Cheat’)

So you’d like to do a little impromptu hypnosis, but are feeling a little risk averse? This could be just what you need!

This is a little win/win method for getting a foot stick. BUT… don’t get cocky! Take your time get ‘buy in’! Set it up like the real deal (because that is just what it is when you do it right)!

Also there is a little bit of subtlety in the touch and how you manage the force, so make sure you give yourself the time to learn it and get use to the ‘feel’ of it.

Enjoy  the video and please do comment!

This is just a bit of fun, but if you would like to learn about Hypnosis Without Trance in depth, the Hypnosis Without Trance Hypnosis Mastery Programme is an incredible resource that will take your hypnosis to new levels.

This material has taught me more about Hypnosis than my previous 20 years in Psychology and 4 years as a practicing Hypnotherapist.  Hypnotherapists are sometimes very scathing of this stuff,  perhaps scared at what they might accomplish!  This material should be a standard requirement for ANY Hypnotist wanting to bring about real change work.  Everything is demonstrated without anything held back and explained in finest detail,  to satisfy all learning styles.

If you don’t learn this stuff you will be left behind!

    Very simple yet impressive, it links physiology of balance to a seemingly impressive mind challenge. I have your Hypnosis without Trance mastery Programme they are great value for money.

    You truly inspire me. I love your no nonsense approach to hypnosis. So effective…Time to try out some HWT on my friends.
    Thanks

    This is great. It’s a “trick” yet it isn’t. I think it’s a great metaphor for how we unconsiously choose to see life at times: feeling “stuck” when in fact we aren’t and how others can influence that feeling, yet the reality and the freedom is our very own. It is a great thing that you use this knowledge to help others rather than to harm.

        Thanks James.
        What I meant a sentece 5:17 sec of the video i.e. the worse what can happen is exactly what happened to Pat. So what happened to her which we can not see on the video?

    James,
    I have been following your blog with great interest for a while now. The foot stick is superb and the ideal thing to do when faced with someone who offers ‘a challenge’. Love your approach to hypnosis. Looking forward to your next posting on the blog.
    Regards
    Bob

    James.
    this is an excellent convincer. It helps to create a belief set which can be used to move into either therapeutic work or entertainment, dependent upon your intent. Linking in to atavistic beliefs in an elegant and effective manner. Absolute gold dust!

    I was wondering if the idea of using the physics ‘foot-lift challenge’ BEFORE any HWT even begins would have any changes.
    if the subject already believes you can already control them would this have any difference as to how easily/quickly/effectively they respond to further ‘ideas’?

    • James Tripp

      A lot of people would say absolutely ‘YES’ but the reality is that it is different for different people. But yes, it could.

      As an additional note on this, personally I never play the ‘I can control you’ frame, as it is mostly counter-productive. I prefer the ‘wonder at the power of the mind’ frame. Overt hypnosis requires cooperation and the ‘I can control you’ frame mostly sets up resistance (not always, but mostly).

        By ‘control’ I was just looking for a phrase. So whatever you call it in the eyes of the subject it could be grouped in with the ‘genuine’ work, whether you choose to go down the ‘power of your mind’ or ‘I can control you’ theory.

        I was thinking of using that, followed by finger attraction as a tester to see if they have now decided to work with or are wishing to actively resist any further work with you.

    Great stuff, thanks for sharing! This is awesome, I will use it for sure!

    Considering more and more in buying your stuff, too bad you don’t offer the two programs as download options. I would be interested!

  • James,

    I love these tricks. I personally use sticky card, sticky hand (stuck to table), and this sticky foot when I’m out and about. It’s a great way to pick up clients (at least for questions, curiosity, and consultations.

    Thank you very much for sharing, and keep these nuggets of knowledge coming!

      Hi Alexander!

      Thanks for your feedback! You mentioned that you use the sticky foot when you’re out and about. Does it mean that you use it when the sticky card or sticky hand didn’t work?

      For me, I wouldn’t be comfortable using this as a 3rd choice since it can be easy to be called on it, since it is based on physiological things.

      And in the NFP video, James (if I remember right, I may be wrong) never really answers the question of what to do when people call you on the fact that the sticky foot is a physiological thing. What can one say?

      Thanks!
      JC 🙂

    Hey James, Alexanders, and all of you who use the handstick and the card stick a lot. I have a few questions that I’d like to ask, if it’s ok.

    1) What percentage of the time do you usually get the card stick working convincingly a) for a client? b) for anyone in the street? (because I think the success rate should be higher with clients, since they usually (unconsciously) want it to work since they pay for it.

    2) Do you find the card stick to work equally good as the handstick? Or better? Or worse? Because since there are soft tests in the handstick, one would think that it’d be more effective or “safe”.

    3) Does it sometimes happen that the sticky hand doesn’t work with someone but that the card stick will work (and vice-versa)? Or since they are both ideo-motor phenomena, that failing one greatly affects the success of the other one?

    Here’s another question I’d like a generous soul to delve into: What do you do if your handstick doesn’t work with a client convincingly (not talking about a NFP exit here). Have you ever gone for an amnesia or another phenomenon in case they are just not good at ideo-motor, but okay at ideo-cognitive? , or do you end it there?

    Sorry for the many questions, I’m a hypnotherapist actively integrating this in my practice, and I would like to have a plan A, B and C with my clients, to make sure they experiment something convincing before a session. My goal is that I’d like to shoot for ALL the following phenomena with my clients: handstick, amnesia, and hallucination. And I’d need to have a very strong NFP script to have the balls to shoot for an hallucination even if they failed both previous tests.

    So that’s why I’d like to know what is the percentage of success of “sticky stuff” and amnesia for example, to see how much balls it will take! hehe!

    MANY THANKS in advance everyone for your contributions!

    Hi JC

    1. I don’t use the card stick in that form too often with clients (I have a modified version I use, which is included in the forthcoming ‘Changework Applications DVD), but of all the times I have used it, I can think of only one occasion it failed (which was no big deal, because I utilised the ‘failure’).

    2. The Handstick is more foolproof by far than the cardstick (becasue it has more flag tests and a gentler escalation), which is why I use it far more often.

    3. If one doesn’t work, I won’t usually go for the other.

    And regarding your last question, I may well go for a name amnesia, but most often I won’t. Much of it will depend upon the quality of the response.

    Just to be clear, reasonably often I will go for name amnesias without any build up or pre-framing at all, just issuing the ‘uroborus pattern’ (from Hypnosis Mastery Programme) challenge off the back of a pattern interrupt or in the middle of a conversation. I still seem to get a reasonable success rate with this cold approach (maybe 50-60%). Obviously to do this you need to be totally detached from the outcome – if it hits you have a miracle, if you miss it’s no biggy (if you set no frames, there are no expectations).

    You can get away with saying “but it’s a curious question though, notice how the logic of it kind of ‘eats’ itself, and I was curious to see how you would respond to it”

    If you go for hallucination, do it at the end of a chain of other phenomena and just use the ‘utility termination manoeuvre’ from the No-Fail Protocol if it doesn’t pan out.

    Hope that helps

    James

    Thanks a lot James for the detailed reply! I appreciate!

    Can you tell us more about what kind of “tests” you usually do with your clients? Do you do other stuff than handsticks? Or if you get a handstick, do you usually go for name amnesia, or something else first? Or do you usually stop it there and start the changework?

    Thanks!

    Hey James

    Just wondering if it is possible to use one induction as a misdirection process and then before we end that induction we change to another induction. So perhaps hand drop to hand stick. Would it work as a confusion factor?
