A lot of people don’t realize that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis. The hypnotherapist is simply the facilitator. In fact, you can put yourself into hypnosis without a hypnotist. In my practice I regularly teach my clients self-hypnosis because using it between sessions helps compound the suggestions and aids in reaching the desired goal faster. I routinely give personalized recordings to my clients for this purpose. Hypnosis can be used in any situation where you need to change your physical, mental or emotional state.
Hypnosis is the most natural self-healing gift known to humanity. It is the key to changing old or unwanted behaviour patterns and creating new, positive habits. However, remember to keep all suggestions and directions in the positive form…eliminating all negative words.
The reason for this is that the subconscious mind will not hear negativities. How many times have you said, “don’t forget the milk”, and forgot the milk. On the other hand if you say “remember the milk…you will remember. So it is very important to keep language positive.
Hypnosis is a method of boring your conscious mind so that it relaxes and stops thinking, much the same as when you go to bed at night just before you actually slip into sleep.
In hypnosis, your conscious mind is like an obedient servant-it just does what it is told to do. The subconscious mind doesn’t think, reason, or rationalize, it only follows instructions. Conversely, your conscious mind needs to be relaxed and quieted so it won’t argue against what you are instructing your subconscious mind to do. Hypnotic suggestions are effective because they bypass the conscious mind’s natural resistance to change and to reprogram the “computer” we call the subconscious to permanently effect these changes.
This process is called hypnosis. Again…all hypnosis is self-hypnosis-it is impossible to hypnotize someone against his or her will.
By devoting a mere 20 minutes each day to this approach, you can literally take charge of your life.
