Self Hypnosis for self improvement is closely related to meditation; however, it is almost 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 while you are in hypnosis, you can respond quickly, easily and with a clear mind. You will feel wonderfully relaxed when you are finished and generally feel more energized.
After you have practiced hypnosis for a period of time and know what it feels to be in a hypnotic state, you can learn to give yourself a simple command such as “relax” and enter that state easily and quickly. It takes practice but it definitely can be done. Being in this relaxed state without dialog can be quite helpful, simply because of the deep relaxation you can achieve. It is in this state that your subconscious mind can bring some of you more hidden ideas to your mind so you can address them.
If you have not experienced hypnosis with a professional hypnotherapist you can get the experience with audio recordings. You can find a wide selection of self-hypnosis tapes on YouTube, and a number that are designed to teach you the technique.
If you find the thought of it fearful, know that it is safe, delightful and very, very helpful.
