- Before you begin using self-hypnosis it is best to schedule time for it.
- Do your sessions every day.
- Repeat your suggestions as often as possible as you go through your day. Perhaps you can write them on index cards so you can carry them around and refer to them throughout the day.
- Review your progress. Are you closer to your goal than you were when you started? If you are not making progress, you need to rethink and reorganize your suggestions to match what you want to achieve.
Self-hypnosis is a powerful tool for setting goals and self-improvement. Most people are amazed that it’s easy to learn self-hypnosis. Many things become easier once you learn to use hypnosis yourself. Self-hypnosis is normally a person listening to a CD, an mp3 recording, or other type of audio, intended to help a person to change using suggestions focused on specific topics like losing weight, reducing stress, stop smoking, play better golf, or something else they want to improve. All too often, these recordings for hypnosis are generally created by someone who does not know the person being hypnotized, which can often include unwanted or even unpleasant visualizations and suggestions. If you are afraid of water, the last thing you may want to hear or think about is a taking a long walk along a pier stretching out into the ocean. When using generic self-hypnosis recordings the "self" just means that you listen to it by yourself. How do you use self-hypnosis to make improvements in your life? To be able to get the most out of self-hypnosis, there are certain aspects in you that should be addressed. Using hypnosis, the thoughts and beliefs that are holding you back are addressed by using positive imagery and affirmations to bring about improvement. A good self-hypnosis session would be designed and created by the very person who will ultimately use and benefit from it under the guidance of a Certified Hypnotist. With correct instruction this hypnosis session is made for the purpose that person desires, using the the best words, phrases and ideas that are meaningful to that person. The self-hypnosis script is thus crafted by the person to meet his or her own goals. The desired benefits could only be accomplished with such a personal, one-of-a-kind session. When done properly, the "self" in self-hypnosis really does mean that you are hypnotized by yourself. Learning these skills from a trained professional is the best way to achieve success. Once you have learned to do self-hypnosis correctly you are well on your way to making tremendous positive changes in your life.
