We are all highly susceptible to environmental triggers and these triggers can powerfully seed responses in us. Language shapes environment as strongly as smell, taste, touch and sight. Suggestions can become much more powerful if seeded with universal patterns that people can relate to easily. For example, talking about the common experience of sitting or lying on a leg and then finding it's gone numb as a way of seeding the suggestion of later developing hypnotic anesthesia. It's very important for you to be aware of the triggers in your own environment and, as far as possible, ensure that you surround yourself with items that produce positive associations within you.
