I was just introduced to a new series of videos from HowCast and will begin to feature them on a very frequent basis. But I got really excited about the one you are about to see. We are bombarded with information on a daily basis and accept things we are not even aware of into our subconscious minds. This video talks about that. Many of us don’t have the tools we need to safeguard our minds from this subliminal input nor do we have the tools to install the ideas and thoughts we want on a permanent basis. Take a look at the video below and then visit Progressive Awareness to find the tools you need.
As a hypnotherapist for almost twenty years, I have been searching for solid material utilizing hypnosis, self hypnosis and subliminals. I didn’t want to recommend anything I would not feel comfortable using myself or giving to someone I care about. After listening to many, many recordings, I have finally found one that I can recommend without reservation. InnerTalk was founded and is directed by Eldon Taylor who has been a guest twice on The Self Improvement Show. I know his products – books and recordings - are of the highest quality and integrity.
Self Hypnosis A Key to Relaxation And Better Productivity.
When I was a student I became aware of time constraints. For example I would commute from the Montreal suburb of Dorval to Loyola College. It was about a 20 minute train trip. I would occasionally scan a newspaper, if anyone left one on a seat, or I would study a bit. But, to be honest I would usually just gaze out the window let my mind wander. One day I came across a book in a store that featured Self Hypnosis. I was intrigued and I decided to buy the book. It was a memorable decision. Later in my dental career I attended a couple of medical level hypnosis courses.
Some might call it meditation instead of self hypnosis. I believe they are close in characteristics. Some have referred to hypnosis as altered concentration. The goal is to limit one’s stimuli and focus on both identifiable and pleasant sensations. It can almost be called a clearing of the mind and allowing uncomplex ideas to set the pace and dictate one’s thoughts.
I used my increasing skills in self hypnosis to learn how to take quick naps. In fact I think it helped my studies as I progressed through University. I could take a 30 minute nap and wake a bit sluggish but usually that would wear off quickly and I could begin studying.
The technique, I found practical for me, was to find a comfortable place to sit. I would close my eyes and visualize a situation where I had in fact sat down after a pleasant stroll. I would allow my mind to wander to my feet and visualize the comfortable feeling of relaxation, as if I had just taken off my shoes. I didn’t always do that in fact, it was more of a imaginary act. I would feel the tingle start in my soles at the toe level and slowly move to my heels. Then up my legs to my calves. As the visualization of one area in relaxation moved up the body I would allow the previous areas to become comfortably numb, not a Pink Floyd song mind you, a physical numb…
As the relaxation spread up to my hips the scope of the relaxation enlarged to take in a larger region, circling the body from back to front and up the back to the chest area. I discovered that when I got to the rib cage a deep and slow inhalation followed by a deliberate relaxing exhalation gave me a satisfying feeling of ‘sinking’ into the chair which I was in. The neck was a welcome area, as by now my body was very restful. The face and head were the climax of the procedure, I would have the thoughts of relaxation spread around the face in small increments, the chin, cheeks, forehead and temples in sequence. By now I was either asleep in a restful state or very near that.
One negative, as I noted, was that I often woke from these sessions with a bit of a feeling of sluggishness, even feeling a bit down. I was in the medical library at McGill when I came across an article on hypnosis. They discussed this situation. Their advice was to include post hypnotic suggestions as one began o relax. Mine was to suggest that when I awoke I would feel alert and very positive. After a few trial sessions this began to work excellently. In fact I trained myself to go into a deep hypnotic state in under 3 or 4 minutes and ‘sleep’ for 30 minutes. It was a regular after supper routine when I was at McGill. I would have supper, make my way to the library, find a nice comfortable chair and go into my routine.
I guess I was less than inconspicuous. I was at a party that some friends had invited me to attend. A cute gal came up to me and said, “Hey I know you… you’re the guy who sleeps in the library” As good fortune would have it my classmates were within ear shot and had a great laugh. In fact for some time I was known as the dental student who “slept around”. All good fun, and to this day I can take a quick nap when the opportunity presents. I feel it is worthwhile learning how to relax this way. I have read that some high tech companies are encouraging staff to take quick afternoon naps and work a bit later. From an article I read the practice is popular and productive. I do not have scientific evidence on this but I know I can renew my energy after my ‘self hypnosis’ initiated naps.
From a world of tension to a world of tranquility through directed self relaxation by means of self hypnosis. Learn a simple way to bring oneself to a deep inner calm. It is an inner strength that we all have and call call upon. The methods are not mysterious nor complicated. Once one begins to practice self hypnosis it rapidly become obvious that it is a natural activity.
Self Hypnosis - This is closely related to meditation; however, it is always guided – a narrator guides you into hypnosis and guides your thoughts, giving you suggestions. Hypnosis works with your subconscious mind – that part of your mind that works with habits, emotions, creativity, intuition and the autonomic nervous system. It helps you get to the heart of the matter and make change more easily and quickly. Hypnosis is absolutely safe. If you have an emergency you can respond quickly, easily and with a clear mind. You will feel wonderfully relaxed when you are finished and generally feel more energized.
Because of their professional approach I recommend the following site:
Shakespeare’s Juliet asked “”What’s in a name? That which we call a rose By any other name would smell as sweet.” Romeo and Juliet (II, ii, 1-2) She loved Romeo even if he had the wrong last name – a name hated by her family.
Hypnosis is like that. It has a name that means sleep and brings up images of quacking like a duck and clucking like a chicken because it has been used as entertainment by stage hypnotists. That’s too bad because it is often the tool of choice when working with self improvement challenges. It’s too bad we can’t call it something else.
Hypnosis was approved by the British Medical Society in 1955 and by the American Medical Association in 1958 as a treatment modality. It can be used for anesthesia without incurring side effects and it is a powerful tool for pain control. In childbirth it cuts the labor time almost in half because the mother is relaxed and comfortable. But, because it takes more time than popping a pill or administering a medication, it is not utilized. In fact there are unlimited uses for hypnosis in contemporary medicine and yet it goes unused.
The facts about hypnosis are:
It is absolutely safe.
You are wide awake throughout the session
You will NEVER, EVER do anything you don’t want to do or say anything you don’t want to say.
You have most likely been in hypnosis without realizing it. If you are so absorbed in your TV program that you don’t hear someone call your name, you are most likely in hypnosis. Or if you miss your turn off the freeway because your mind was on something else – hypnosis.
It is a tool that helps you access your subconscious mind . The subconscious is that part of your mind that works with habits, emotions, creativity, intuition and the autonomic nervous system – a very powerful part of your mind. It also is the storage place for most of your memory. It is like the hard drive of your computer only it is unlimited.
It is a very pleasant, relaxing experience
It is a tool you can learn to use for yourself
The smarter you are, the easier hypnosis is for you.
It is a very effective change agent.
Think of hypnosis this way. If you have a car or truck that has two gas tanks and one of them is almost empty, all you have to do is flip a switch on your dashboard and the engine starts drawing gas from the full tank. The car doesn’t have any reaction. It doesn’t stall, it doesn’t slow down, it doesn’t jerk or bump or make funny noises. It just keeps going, using gas from the full tank. Hypnosis is the switch that allows you to start working with that part of you mind called the subconscious. You may not notice the change. You don’t go to sleep. You are not “out of it.” You can talk. You can have your eyes open and look around, although this may be a bit too distracting for you to stay focused on what you want to accomplish. When you want to “emerge” from hypnosis you simply make a decision to do so.
How hard is that?
You can make some very deep and lasting changes by working with this part of your mind. It is especially effective with issues like smoking and overeating because these are primarily habitual and emotional behaviors. Remember – the subconscious mind works with habits and emotions, among other things.
In the arena of self improvement, it is almost limitless in its ability to help you overcome unwanted behaviors or develop desired behaviors.
The good news is that there are some very effective self-hypnosis recordings available either on CD or as MP3 downloads that will let you experience hypnosis without having to spend large amounts of money or time. Technology has made this possible. If you try it and like the experience you might like the added benefit a good hypnotherapist can bring by making your hypnosis session fit your specific needs and goals.
Call it by any other name than hypnosis if that helps you drop your fear of it. I call it a rich and pleasant experience.
I call it the greatest self improvement tool available to us today.
