The art of trying to learn self hypnosis may seem a little perplexing to some people, but in actual fact anyone can learn the techniques involved. Self hypnosis can be used to relax, take your mind off the stressful occurrences of day to day life, and alter your mentality and outlook towards life so that it is more positive.
The thing that most people don’t realise with self hypnosis is that it isn’t just a relaxation tool that you can use to delve deeply into a relaxed state where the usual quarrels and fears of the world are alleviated. Self hypnosis can be used for so much more, however people just don’t know what. You see, self hypnosis can be used to not only get in contact with our subconscious, but it can also be used to change the fundamental way it thinks and behaves in just about every single aspect.
This is to say that if we’d normally find a certain situation in our lives to be a little trifling or odd, that we can learn self hypnosis to help help overcome it. Now whether this problem is a fear, a phobia, anxiety, stress or just about any other psychologically related thing, doesn’t really matter, since hypnosis works the same way for all conditions. The thing we’re trying to do with self hypnosis is change certain aspects of the way we think and behave.
Now some people immediately become a little concerned when they think of themselves as being somehow changed drastically through self hypnosis, however there really isn’t anything much to worry about. The reason for this is because hypnosis doesn’t work against our fundamental principles and beliefs. If there’s a part of us that we don’t want to change, then we can’t simply put ourselves into hypnosis and have bad things happen and things changed that we don’t want to, hypnosis just doesn’t work like that you see. In order for change to occur, we have to want it. We have to be willing to alter the way we handle certain situations, or view various aspects of life. If for example we want to become more confident when giving public speeches, then that’s something we desire, a thing we want to change. When we put ourselves into self hypnosis, we will be able to make ourselves more confident, because that’s something we want to do.
So you’re perhaps wondering what is the best way that you can go about trying to learn self hypnosis, and what changes that you mind want to make in your life. Self hypnosis isn’t nearly as difficult as you might think. All that is essentially required is that you find a bit of spare time where you can be alone, and guide your mind and body into a very relaxed and care free state. You can do this by imagining yourself doing something that you find relaxing, and the more that you do it, the more relaxed you can become. This is a similar methodology that practitioners of the eastern mantras utilise, the need to relax ones self before accepting suggestions, or mantras.
When you’re in this relaxed state, all you need to then do is give yourself positive suggestions. The keyword here is positive, as you don’t want to mention any bad words, even if you put the word ‘don’t’ or ‘won’t’ in front of them (eg: saying ‘I won’t feel nervous’ isn’t good since you’re still mentioning the word nervous, which is a bad keyword). The positive words you might use would consist of ‘confidence’ ‘determination’ and ‘relaxed’. You may say to yourself when you’re in self hypnosis ‘I want to always feel calm and relaxed’. Once you bring yourself out of hypnosis, then you’ve effectively planted the desired suggestion into your subconscious. This is essentially all there is to learning self hypnosis, and with time and practice you too will be able to enter into this state quite easily, and make the desired changes.
