Believe It Or Not, Self-Hypnosis Changes Lives
Hypnosis can provide many benefits. It’s even possible to hypnotize yourself. Self-hypnosis might provide the breakthrough you desire. Self-hypnosis can change your attitudes, emotions, and behaviors. It can also alter bad habits or increase your self-esteem.
Many view self-hypnosis as a lack of control or awareness, but it’s actually the opposite. Hypnosis involves a high degree of concentration.
It’s similar to a meditative state, but with a different purpose. Meditation is about emptying the mind. Self-hypnosis is about putting new thoughts and ideas into the mind.
Hypnosis is a safe and effective way to alter your beliefs and habits. There are health professionals trained in the use of hypnotherapy, but you can get many of the same benefits on your own. However, seek out professional assistance if necessary.
1. Self-hypnosis is a skill that often requires time to develop. Learning to relax and concentrate takes time. It won’t take years, but it might take a month or two to see good results.
2. Sit in a comfortable position with your feet flat on the floor. If you’re able to sit in a meditative position and be comfortable, a full-lotus position is also effective. Avoid positions that will allow you to fall asleep. Also avoid positions you can’t maintain with comfort for at least 10 minutes.
3. Stare at a point directly across from you. Take a deep breath and forcefully command yourself to sleep right now. “I am going to sleep right now!” is an effective phrasing. Repeat this phrase several times and allow your eyes to close. Be gentle with your command, but be convincing.
4. The most important step is to relax your body completely. Tell yourself that you’re becoming more relaxed with every breath. Feel the breath traveling in and out of your nose and mouth.
In order to become completely relaxed, you may want to consider meditating for a few moments before trying to hypnotize yourself. Click below to download a free solfeggio meditation.
