Self Hypnosis Instruction

Self hypnosis instruction is when you able to put themselves into a hypnotic state under your own guidance or direction.

Do you want to lose weight, quit smoking, or break those bad habits? Self hypnosis re-educates the unconscious part of your mind - that part of the mind responsible for cravings and impulses - to learn new patterns of behavior.

Hypnosis has been used for many problems that people would like to solve and bad habits they need to break. But unfortunately, not everyone has hundreds of dollars to spend on a hypnotherapist professional.

Self hypnosis instruction is similar to a meditative state except that you are able to provide suggestions that break habits of thoughts, emotions, or behavior, to improve your life.

Here we provide a number of steps to your self hypnosis instruction that includes:

  • the goals of hypnosis and writing your hypnosis script
  • relaxing your mind and body for hypnosis
  • the start of the hypnotic induction phase
  • counting yourself back.

Be clear on your hypnosis goals for self hypnosis instruction

When starting your self hypnosis instruction be clear about what you want to achieve in your self hypnosis session. Do you want to lose weight, quit smoking, or reduce anxiety?

Write down the goal of your hypnosis and plan what you want to say in your session.

Part of the preparation is to write down a script for your hypnosis session that includes nominalizations and embedded commands in your metaphor and analogy.

Relax your mind and body

The first thing is to find a place inside your home, or perhaps outside in a secluded area where you will not be disturbed. Make sure that you won't have any company. If your home is generally a busy place, it might be best for you to conduct your self-hypnosis at night after everyone has went to sleep.

Make sure that you are comfortable. If the area where you are situated causes you any sort of discomfort or unease, move somewhere else. Try to think of the most serene area in your home.

Where is the energy calm and "clean?" This is the place you need to be. If it helps, set up a comfy chair or maybe even a big comforter and a pillow so you can lie down. In order for everything to go accordingly, you need to be as comfy as possible.

Use breathing to relax

The next step is to begin slowly inhaling and exhaling. As you inhale, count from 1 to 10. As you exhale, count from 10 down to 1. Pay very close attention to how you breathe. You should feel comfortable in every aspect. If you're not comfortable with your breathing or feel anxiety in any way, simply think of something that brings you happiness. If your thoughts are racing, it may help to put on some soft music and light a few candles.

As you begin to settle into an all-encompassing sense of comfort, you should start to feel peaceful and at ease. You might also notice that you feel almost "blissful." Once you have reached this stage, you are officially within the first stages of self-hypnosis.

From here, you should allow your mind to wander where ever it wants. As long as you've achieved a sense of peace, you're free to go. Think of a place where you want to be, such as a beach, castle, pond, or maybe even an exciting event, such as a play or fireworks show. You might envision that you are flying or skydiving from a plane. Whatever brings you happiness and fulfillment is where you need to be.

Start your hypnotic induction phase

Imagine yourself free from whatever habit that you're trying to break (such as smoking or excessive eating).

Use your own voice and repeat the hypnotic words that you have chose. Listening to hypnotic CDs or MP3s customizes to your goals is useful here.

Some of the most common hypnosis MP3s include:

Picture yourself completely happy while you're at the place you envision in your mind. Look at your life the way it is there.

Imagine that you're bringing this happiness back with you to the real world - free of the habits you're trying to release.

If you're choosing to perform self-hypnosis to increase your self-confidence or to picture yourself living a life of wealth, imagine that you are bringing these new qualities back with you.

What you are trying to do is to create your own magical place in your mind. A place that you feel safe and secure in.

Counting yourself back

Begin to walk out of wherever you are.

Imagine that as you leave the place of which you have traveled to in your mind that you are walking down a series of steps. Count backwards from 20. Inhale and exhale with each count. After you've finished counting, wake up.

Take note of how refreshed and re-focused you feel.

Repeat as necessary.
