The Benefits of Self Hypnosis

Aug 17, 2007
Self hypnosis is an easy technique that can allow you to better understand yourself. The human mind is made up of two parts that are known as the conscious and unconscious mind. The conscious mind is what allows the individual to exist in society productively. The conscious mind is like the regulator while the unconscious mind is the primitive portion.

When something is not as you would like the unconscious mind may send signals to run, fight or some other unacceptable behavior. The conscious mind then intervenes and holds these primitive thoughts to keep your body productive and in line. The unconscious mind makes up the majority of the mind and stores all experiences and memories from the past.

When an individual wishes to change a part of their personality, thoughts or behaviors they must change the internal script. There are a number of scripts that are already stored within the brain, but can be changed with the use of hypnosis. Self hypnosis technique is a good way to change this scripting. It is simple and most anyone can hypnotize themselves. You can guide yourself into this deep area of thought through relaxation and focus.

By focusing your attention on something you can drift away to your unconscious mind. State what it is you want to change or work on as well as how you will feel when you come out of hypnosis. Of course you want to feel relaxed and rested, so tell yourself.

Change self hypnosis is when you have hypnotized yourself and are working on changing a behavior. For example, if you suffer from anxiety and panic at the thought of going to a public place alone, you can suggest other feelings with the thought. Such as, when I think of going to the mall alone, I will feel a feeling of calmness and relax. With your mind being in such a suggestible state it will absorb the feeling and change the scripting. This is very effective for a number of issues. Many people have changed fears, thoughts, addictions with change self hypnosis.

Free self hypnosis is the only form of hypnosis that is truly free. Since the person is conducting the hypnosis themselves there is no need to incorporate anyone else that would charge a fee. Self hypnosis is as safe and effective as guided hypnosis. In fact many people feel more comfortable not sharing their inner feelings and thoughts.

Sometimes there are issues that are embarrassing for individuals that they do not feel the need to indulge to others. That is where self hypnosis can assist them in their journey to change. There is no reservation on the patient's part of sharing their feelings or saying something that they may regret. While hypnotist can not elicit behaviors or thoughts that are not representative of the patient many people still have many reservations.

There are a number of myths that surround the topic of hypnosis. No matter how much proof there is that hypnotist can not make a person do something they normally would not do, they still believe the myths. Many picture a person being mesmerized with a pocket watch or bulls eye. Once in hypnosis they picture walking around like an animal making animal sounds. This is not true for hypnosis that is seriously working toward changing feelings or thoughts. There are however many stage hypnotists that will have subjects perform funny behaviors, but they are willing participants.

You would not find that in a hypnotist's office. They are not going to jeopardize their career for a few minutes of laughs. On the other hand the stage hypnotist makes their living from making the audience laugh. It is all in good fun and there is nothing wrong with quacking like a duck! With self hypnosis there is not a fear, but the reality of you are fully in control.

There are several self hypnosis scripts available in books, tapes and online. Some have free scripting that you can get ideas and others charge for their scripts. A person can easily sit and write their own script. Simply determine your goal, what you wish to achieve and sit down and write it out. Study it and become comfortable with telling yourself these things. Focus on something and imagine a peaceful place. Once you are there recite the script to yourself, upon awakening enjoy the new you!
