Self-hypnosis is a very powerful and natural state of mind, which every single person in the world can achieve.
There is nothing mystical, magical, dangerous, or harmful in any way by practicing self-hypnosis.
Self-hypnosis is one of the easiest ways to affect changes in your life, due to the positive messages that go straight into your subconscious mind effortlessly, so that you can accomplish your ultimate goals, whatever they may be.
Hypnotism as a tool for personal health appears to have originated with the Hindus of ancient India, who regularly took their sick to sleep temples to be cured by hypnotic suggestions, as was also found to be the case in ancient Egypt and Greece.
Hypnotic-like inductions were used to place individuals into this sleep-like state, although it is now generally accepted that hypnosis is different from sleep.
The therapeutic use of hypnosis in medicine was accepted in 1955 by the British Medical Association and was closely followed in 1958 by the American Medical Association.
Did you know that the absolute perfect time to talk to your subconscious mind happens twice every day to every one of us, and that is just before you go to sleep, and just before you wake up; “How many times has your body twitched or jumped during this semi-conscious state”? You’re not awake, and you are not asleep, but it is the perfect time to think of all the right things in your life.
Self-hypnosis (or auto-suggestion) is hypnosis in which a person hypnotizes themselves without the assistance of a hypnotherapist, pretty obvious really, and is mostly used to help you stay on a diet, overcome smoking or some other addiction, or to boost your overall self-esteem.
Stop Smoking for Good
More complex uses of hypnosis require a hypnotherapist to monitor the person's reactions and responses and to respond accordingly then.
Many people who practice self-hypnosis require a focus to become thoroughly hypnotized, and many computer programs on the market can help, although few if any, have actually been proven to aid self-hypnosis.
Self-hypnosis is a very natural state to enter into, we do it often, entirely predictable, and usually when you find that you were so focused on what you were doing.
You didn't hear your name called or how many times have you driven to work or the shops, and when you got there, you thought to yourself “Crikey, I don't remember that journey”, what has happened is that you went into autopilot mode, which is in effect a self-hypnotic trance-like state.
Most self-hypnosis audio sessions are between 30 - 45 minutes long and begin by relaxing you into a self-hypnotic state, and if you've never been hypnotized before you will be surprised at how enjoyable and deeply relax the whole experience is.
Self-hypnosis is a highly efficient way to harness the natural resource of your creative unconscious mind for good; the possibilities are endless.
It is fascinating, because, in this state of mind, negative beliefs can be reversed to positive with life-changing effects.
We all know how much a belief can affect the outcome of our lives; a negative one can comfortably hold you back, and a positive view can give you the ability to overcome any obstacle, exceeding even your levels of a happy, successful life.
What you can expect from self-hypnosis is a heightened state of awareness, together with compelling, lasting, and pretty rapid life changes.
