What Is Self-hypnosis And How Can I Do It?

person sitting on rocks at sunsetDo you really need someone else to hypnotise you If you don’t have time to go see your hypnotherapist, self-hypnosis is an effective treatment you can use. Self-hypnosis is similar to regular hypnosis, except that you’re the one placing yourself into a state of greater suggestibility (instead of someone else).

Think back to your time as a child. Do you remember being bored at home and creating imaginary scenarios in your head to pass time? This is where imaginary friends and role-playing games began That’s self-hypnosis. Except, now you’re no longer a child — you’re using the same principles of influencing your mind to improve your health, overcome bad habits, and grow as a person (instead of just passing time at home).

The Requirements For Self-Hypnosis

Just like standard hypnosis, where you go to a clinic to visit a professional hypnotherapist, self-hypnosis has some requirements that must be met, you have to:

  • Be open to hypnosis (if you don’t like the idea of being hypnotised, your subconscious will reject it)
  • Get comfortable. If you’re constantly shifting around, you won’t be able to reach the level of concentration required to reach a state of greater suggestibility (the goal of self-hypnosis)
  • Keep it simple. When you’re worrying about the technical aspects of self-hypnosis, you’re sidetracking your mind from the task at hand (to reach a state of trance)

Ready To Hypnotise Yourself And Improve Your Health & Wellbeing?

Follow the steps below to get started with your self-hypnosis practice:

  • Get comfortable
  • Relax your mind and body with meditation techniques (e.g., count your breathing and focus on specific body parts)
  • Repeat the suggestion you want to apply to yourself (make sure it’s present tense). E.g., “I am making progress towards quitting smoking”.
  • Continue for 15-30 minutes
  • Slowly come out of your state of trance and focus back on reality. Gently open your eyes, begin to move your body, and prepare to dominate the rest of your day.
