The art of self hypnosis is getting yourself relaxed to a point where your subconscious mind is more open so you are able to receive and act upon suggestions.
Then using repetition with those suggestions to change your thought patterns, ultimately changing your habits.
The Difference Between Hypnosis And Self Hypnosis
With hypnosis, someone is usually guiding you through your session.
All hypnosis sessions are considered to be self hypnosis because you are participating in the process of getting into trance and allowing suggestions and programs into your mind. So many professionals like to convey that in fact you are doing it yourself.
Most people still prefer hypnosis because the hypnotist has spent a lot of time in school learning and perfecting the essential techniques and expanded their ability to use artistically written scripts and metaphors.
Just as most people prefer to have a lawyer represent them in court, instead of representing themselves, simply because the attorney has spent a lot more time practicing law than his client.
So give yourself a break here and take out some time to learn.
You can cheat by picking out some prerecorded downloads, like the free one I have listed at the top of the nav bar, or if a specific topic peaks your interest try one of those.
If money is a big objection for you, no worries, the free one is a steal and will give you some great ideas!
You could always check out some U Tube videos to get some hints too.
What To Expect
Some people notice that they instantly feel different, while others feel no significant difference from what they experience in day dreaming for a while.
Just remember over time it is very effective in getting you the changes you desire.
Like everything else, it takes practice.
I compare it to the gym. You have to start out lifting ten pounds, until you can lift twenty, then thirty, etc.
Your imagination is like a muscle, the more you use it the stronger it will become, which is why I like the gym analogy.
As a general rule, it is best not to watch for the state of hypnosis. It's like watching to see if you are asleep,the longer you watch, the longer you stay awake.
