Metaphors

Metaphors
Previously, we discussed the hypnotic language patterns of the
Milton Model, which Erickson developed for use in a permissive,
indirect style for inducing trance. We noted that the key principle
underlying Milton Model patterns is that ambiguity in any represen-
tational system causes trance.
Over the years, Erickson discovered that he could lead a patient
into trance without any formal induction by telling stories that
would engage the curiosity of the patient’s Unconscious Mind,
opening a channel for direct dialogue with the Unconscious. These
stories are metaphors.
In this chapter, you will be reading examples of metaphors. They
will include words in italics in many places. The italics are not for
emphasis, but for drawing your attention to words or phrases that
are examples of Milton Model patterns from Chapter 4 or
Ericksonian techniques, such as embedded commands, from
Chapter 9. We will discuss loops later in the chapter.
