What are the differences between hypnosis and self-hypnosis?
We experience hypnotic trance-like states all the time without knowing, we call it daydreaming.
When your completely immersed in the project, you don’t seem to notice things that are happening around you, like reading a book, planning or preparing things that need your upmost attention, you’re unaware of people speaking, and time seems to pass so quickly. This is called an altered state, and can happen, when watching films, listening to radio, driving your car, and other times when you need to be absorbed in what you’re doing.So hypnosis can occur any time, it is not a sleep, state although it seems like it.
Hypnosis is a state of mind or an altered state of mind, while in this state, you can make suggestions, which will be acted upon, by your conscious mind, where you found it difficult to act on these suggestions, before.
What you think, is how you feel, how are you feel, is how you behave. Think about what you want, and you’ll get it, Think about what you don’t want, and you’ll get that too.
All Hypnosis is Self Hypnosis
There is no difference between hypnosis and self hypnosis, so you can achieve the same results by using self hypnosis, or having somebody guide you through the procedure. A hypnotherapist has knowledge and can help you through the procedure if you wish, but you were always in control.
Stage shows, novels, stories you’ve heard from others or maybe what you’ve read and even films, are poor interpreters of hypnosis, they have given hypnosis a mysterious aura, that is wrong. Hypnosis is a tool, that can create great change in ourselves. The only side effects are good ones.
You are the subject, and the therapist, this is like being the coach and the athlete or the teacher and the pupil, when practising self hypnosis.
What limitations are there with self hypnosis?
Amazing affects can be obtained using self hypnosis, physical change, curing yourself of warts, pain relief, for medical operations, skin conditions, by using self hypnosis. Other amazing changes can be affected using self hypnosis, Control over fears, motivation and self-confidence can be obtained and rid yourself of allergies.You will learn more about these when I give you your hypnotic tips.
A good way of practising self hypnosis
The how, when, where and how long, in practising self-hypnosis Will be presented here.
You can practice self hypnosis anywhere, in the gym, riding a horse, driving a car, in the airport, waiting for a bus. When you first start learning this technique, it is best to find at place where you will not be disturbed, where is comfortable where you can relax. Indoors is a good place to start somewhere quiet, free from interruptions. Once you’ve learnt this procedure of self hypnosis and you’re comfortable with it you can perhaps do it anywhere anyplace.
You should take time to practice self hypnosis, you’re developing a skill you can use for the rest of your life, that will enrich you with powers to get you what you want to life.
Is there a special time in the day that you can use maybe a lunch or coffee break or an evening after work is done. At first allow yourself 20 minutes as you become more used to entering into trance states, you can cut this time down, lots of people, just love to be there, in that wonderful state of total relaxation. Many people practice self hypnosis before sleep at night.
Once you’ve found your ideal place, sitting or lying down, with no interruptions for the time you set aside, you need to go into a relaxed state. I like to use the progressive relaxation technique, which gets you to relax different parts of your body starting from your toes and ending up at the tip of your forehead.(I have a great relaxation recording you can acquire)
Post hypnotic suggestion
Lynda came out of her hypnotic trance, feeling relaxed and settled and really laid-back. Everything that was said to her by her hypnotherapist she remembered quite clearly. She also recalled her own thoughts while in hypnosis. Hypnosis is a good technique for losing weight, and this is why she was using hypnosis. The hypnotherapist was trying to understand the cause as well as the symptom of Lynda’s excessive weight, and explored Lynda’s childhood memories. It was discovered, Lynda used food for emotional issues as a child and still did.
One of the things the therapist did while in trance, was to teach Lynda self hypnosis, and how to re-enter her trance quickly and safely by using a suggestion. It was agreed, between Lynda and her therapist, that she should get comfortable, Close her eyes and visualise Lynda’s geese at the bottom of the her garden, she would count them from six down to one, then fall into deep hypnosis.
The reason why geese was used as a suggestion was, every time Lynda went to the bottom of her garden and sat in her chair, with her geese around her. She felt so calm, and relax, and settled and really enjoyed talking to her geese. Any comfortable memory Lynda had, could have been used to get into a trance state, Lynda preferred to think about her geese.
