I have used embedded commands...for instance slightly changing the fonts...
I was waiting for the rain to come. To me is taking forever. Now you don't want it to be that obvious...play with size and font...just enough for the subconscious to register it.
Using the magic words like Imagine and Now...
Imagine how nice it would be to do nothing but lounge on the beach all day. Now is the time that we should spend together.
Using the senses to enhance states.
Do you remember the fourth of July that we spent together? Imagine what it was like holding me tight? I know you can feel my body against yours. The smell of my perfume. The sound and the sights on the fireworks exploding in the sky over the water. Remember the sound of all the people laughing and having such a good town.
In that paragraph we have Smell, Touch, Sight, and Sound. We also have Imagine....and the REMEMBER works as a command...the reader will be taken back to that time.
These work especially well for men...men are sensual (as in they need their senses tickled to make an emotional connection).
Some may find this technique controversial but I believe it works..my guy is the most pacifist type of guy but he is competitive with other men. He tries to not let it show but it comes out in very subtle ways. Some men show their competitiveness with sports, the amount of women they can get, money, etc. My guy shows his with the car that he drives. I was able to find him a certain car in a neighboring state..it's actually a wild story..lots of synchonicities and attractions but the ending is not too happy...anyway..I found the car. The thing about this car is that the year it came out there were only 19 of those cars sold in the US. That really fed into his male competitive streak. Unfortunately when he went to pick it up he was in a wreck within 15 minutes. I also think that was the universes doing but I won't get into that on the open board. The point is that I was able to use his competitive streak to help him achieve a goal and by doing that I was also forming a team...a conspiracy of two with him.
