If you’ve ever wanted to learn self hypnosis, all you need to do is learn a few self hypnosis techniques. You don’t need to buy a collection of self hypnosis books, audio tapes and you don’t even need to visit a hypnotist or spiritual guru.
Putting into practice a few simple techniques to bring yourself to a state of deep relaxation can be very easy and rewarding. The most important thing is to find a place that offers complete comfort and quiet. The last thing you need once reaching a state of deep relaxtion is to be disturbed part way through.
You’ll also want to learn how to relax your muscles, how to sit or lay down, and you’ll also want to learn what to do once you are in a subconscious state.
A subconscious state is often referred to as “going under”. This generally means that the conscious mind is “asleep” so a hypnotist can talk directly to the subconscious mind. You will be able to do this yourself when you learn some self hypnosis techniques which have been known to work.
It should be noted that various people use various techniques to put themselves under so use what works for you. You might also come up with self hypnosis techniques of your own that aren’t listed here.
First, find a comfortable spot where you won’t be disturbed for a long period of time. When you’re first starting out, it may take you an hour or more to officially go under. This quiet location could be your bedroom, a local park, or it you could even choose your backyard with the sun shining on your face. You should make sure the place offers complete peace and quiet so that you can concentrate on the rest of the self hypnosis techniques.
Focus on your breathing, relax every muscle in your body and concentrate on not thinking about anything at all. Soon, you’ll find yourself in a deep state of relaxation. This is as close to sleep as you can get without actually falling asleep. Once there, you can do whatever you want to do.
A lot of people often use a self hypnosis script. They also often give themselves instructions and suggestions once they have achieved self hypnosis. The script can include things like mantras to help them quit smoking, to help lose weight, to gain a better memory, and to learn to love themselves.
Let yourself be your own guide as to what you want to achieve. Only you can know what it is that you want. With practice and experimentation you become an expert at self hypnosis.
