      I find this very interesting, because I have also studied neurolinguistic programming and the history of hypnosis. During hypnosis one party has to allow (go along) with the other’s directions, so a strong amount of trust must be present. Also, a kind of “taking for granted” of what is communicated, it has to be allowed to get behind the critical factor (our guard).

      That being said, I think that once we raise our level of awareness, we begin to communicate this “vibe” through the way we use language. If people are receptive they come up to greet us in the same state of mind.
