Self Hypnosis can help you realize your desires; shed old habits and achieve optimal natural health.
It helps you focus your mind to create what you want more of in your life: health, happiness, wealth, success, what ever you desire.
Sound too good to be true?
Perhaps… but I guarantee you will experience more of what your want from life with a focused, positive, clear mind aligned with your desires. Self hypnosis helps you do just that. It serves you far better than a muddled mind burdened with the baggage of old beliefs and habits that well… hold you back and downright harm you.
Hypnosis is a state of highly focused attention with a suspension of peripheral awareness. It’s like looking through a telephoto lens of a camera. There is rich detail in what you focus on with little to no notice of what surrounds it.
In this state of focused awareness, you leave behind everyday worries and concerns. You accept suggestions without thinking about them—without criticizing or judging them.
Did you know that you experience some level of a hypnotic state quite frequently?
Reflect on a time when you were engrossed in a good daydream or novel or movie or a great walk or run.
It’s likely you recalled things like:
- time flew by
- your attention was totally absorbed in your experience
- you felt refreshed and relaxed
Hypnosis is intentionally using this natural state of mind in a structured way to achieve what you want more of in your life, rather than leaving it to happenstance.
It’s likely that you have a few questions about hypnosis so let’s get them answered.
1. Can I be hypnotized?
If willing most people are hypnotizable. Although some people find it harder to focus their attention, they can increase this ability with practice.
You may want to take one of the short hypnotizability tests found on the internet. Though interesting, clinical studies have not found them to be useful in actual practice.
2. Will I lose control if I’m hypnotized?
During hypnosis, you are aware of what is going on. You can stop the session at anytime. You cannot be made to do anything against your will or value system, like rob a bank or hurt someone.
Your mind will only act on suggestions that serve you in some way.
It is true that you are more suggestible during hypnosis. Hypnotists use this suggestibility to create suggestions that help you reach your goals or desires. It is an active process not passive.
This question likely comes from seeing stage hypnotists on TV or in the movies. They portray hypnosis in sensational ways. For their demonstrations, they select highly outgoing (extroverted) persons who are likely to enjoy the performance.
3. Is hypnosis dangerous?
No, hypnosis is not dangerous, It is taught in medical schools and universities. It is widely used by doctors, dentist, and psychologists. It’s considered safe and effective and has never hurt anyone.
4. What’s the difference between hypnosis and self hypnosis?
In a sense, all hypnosis is self hypnosis. Hypnotists simply structure the experience to facilitate your hypnotic capacity.
You’re the one in control.
You can think of a hypnotist as a teacher or expert in the process of hypnosis. Once learned you can hypnotize your self.
5. What’s the difference between hypnosis and hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is the use of hypnosis to treat a condition. If the condition is mild, you may benefit with a self-hypnosis practitioner.
If the condition is more serious or involves a core issue, see someone licensed in treating your condition that has additional training in hypnotherapy. This may be a doctor, psychologist, dentist, nurse, or other licensed health practitioner.
Or, you may want to work with a hypnotist who works in partnership with your health practitioner.
What’s important is choosing a professional who knows how to assess what going on and select the appropriate treatment, as well as handle any complications that might arise.
