What is Self Hypnosis?

When hypnosis is performed by a hypnotist or by listening to a CD, it is called “hetero-hypnosis.” When hypnosis is performed solely by you, it is referred to as “self-hypnosis.” Self-hypnosis is very beneficial when working with general self-improvement issues. It is not recommended for more serious or deep-seated mental or emotional concerns.

Self-hypnosis is governed by two laws of suggestibility in order for it to work. The Law of Association* and the Law of Repetition*. The more you use self-hypnosis in your daily life the more effective and rapid these changes will be.

In order to learn self-hypnosis, you must first establish a series of “anchors” or signals for the mind and body to go into a trance-like state. These anchors are in the form of a keyword such as relax, calm or focus, deep breathing techniques and a physical reminder such as touching your thumb and fingers together to initiate your trance. When combined with a hypnotic countdown such as 5 to 0 into the subconscious mind, a person can then enlist a series of positive suggestions for physical, mental and emotional stages well-being.

Understanding the power of the mind and how our subconscious programming and habits are formed is a beneficial tool for people of all ages. This knowledge can make all the difference in the world in creating success, happiness, and prosperity.
