The Key to Making Self Hypnosis Work

Self hypnosis has been used by a great many people to create real, measurable changes in themselves and their lives. Huge numbers of individuals have utilized the power of self hypnosis to eliminate phobias, control pain, treat physical and psychological symptoms and well as using it to reach their goals. However, a great many other people have never achieved anything worthwhile from its use even though experts say that everyone is hypnotizable! So, the question remains – why doesn’t it always work?Many people fail to get any measurable results from self hypnosis because they are not using it correctly!The first step you should take when considering using self hypnosis is to know what you want. Although this may sound elementary and a little condescending really consider it. Do you know precisely, down to the last detail, what you wish to achieve from your self hypnosis program? Or, do you just listen to a generic self hypnosis session and hope for the best?For example, listening to a self hypnosis recording for more confidence may be a good goal but how do you quantify confidence? Do you want to be confident around other people or potential mates? Are you seeking to gain more confidence in your job or work-life? Is it really that you want to be more confident about your abilities and therefore it is your self-esteem that you are wishing to build?For self hypnosis, like any other self improvement technique, to be effective you must use it with a goal in mind! Your goal, for use with self hypnosis, must be precise. You must make it as detailed as possible.Try writing down a list of things you would like to achieve and then prioritize them. Take your most important desire and turn it into a goal. Write it down. Do it now!Have you done it?By writing down your goal you turn it into an intention – an intention that can be realized through the power of self hypnosis. This makes your desire real and tangible and no longer a vague wish or dream. By doing this you have just created a powerful self hypnosis goal!Now that you are clear on what you want and have created your first self hypnosis goal you need to finish this preliminary work before you ever enter a self hypnosis state.You must now re-write your goal in the present tense as though you already have it. Some people find they experience a feeling of discomfort when they word a goal in the present tense because it feels too unreal. If this happens to you just re-word the goal to reflect the fact that it is in the process of happening. Never state a goal in the future tense! Never state what you do not want or include any of the things that you are trying to eliminate!Your self hypnosis goal must state your intention positively and only include what you want. “I am debt free” is a bad example, for in order to be debt free you must first think of debt! “I am prosperous and wealthy”, is much better as it includes what you do want! “I am no longer uncomfortable in social situations”, is bad as you are focusing on your lack of confidence! “I am a highly confident person who is at ease with others in any situation”, is much more suitable as it states the positive outcome you are seeking!The subconscious mind works, not in words, but in pictures. This becomes very apparent during self hypnosis. So whatever you do right at this moment don’t think of an elephant! What did you just think of? An elephant! Right?In order not to think of an elephant your subconscious mind has to produce a picture of an elephant so it knows what you don’t want to think about! This is why it’s very important to never include what you do not want in your self hypnosis goal!As you enter a self hypnosis trance and use this state to reprogram your mind, your subconscious mind will naturally form pictures from the words you hear or use. So only use positive, goal-affirming statements! Ensure your statements are detailed, positive and to the point. Doing this will force your subconscious mind to create pictures that reinforce your desires and it will use them as as a guide to creating your future!
