Self Suggestion and Self Hypnosis

December 21, 2009 · Filed Under Learn Self-Hypnosis · Comment 

self-sugggestionOne question that arises is: “If I’m under hypnosis, how can I give myself suggestions?” During the hypnotic state, it must be remembered, the subject is always aware of what is going on. He hears what is said, follows directions and terminates the state when told to do so.

In the self-hypnotic state, the subject is in full control. Therefore, he can think, reason, act, criticize, suggest or do whatever he desires. He can audibly give himself suggestions, or he can mentally give himself suggestions. In either case, he does not rouse from the hypnotic state until he gives himself specific suggestions to do so. Many feel if they audibly give themselves suggestions, they will “awaken.”

Self-Hypnosis and Suggestion

December 14, 2009 · Filed Under Learn Self-Hypnosis · Comment 

self-hypnosis-and-suggestionSuggestion plays a tremendously important role in our daily lives. It begins from naming the baby with an appropriate name to securing a suitable place for interment. I would like to call the reader’s attention to a fascinating book dealing with the unconscious reasons why we do many of the things that we do. You will be intrigued with every page of the book. It is called The Hidden Persuaders by Vance Packard.

My contention is that we are all suggestible and, therefore, being hypnotized or hypnotizing ourselves is just a matter of increasing the suggestibility that we already possess. Doesn’t the hypnotist begin by suggesting relaxation? Doesn’t he usually begin by requesting the subject to fix his attention on a particular object?

What You Should Know About Hypnosis and Self-Hypnosis

December 7, 2009 · Filed Under Learn Self-Hypnosis · Comment 

hypnotizeHypnosis has been defined as a state of heightened suggestibility in which the subject is able to uncritically accept ideas for self-improvement and act on them appropriately.

When a hypnotist hypnotizes his subject, it is known as hetero-hypnosis. When an individual puts himself into a state of hypnosis, it is known as self-hypnosis. In both cases, the subject has achieved a heightened state of suggestibility. Even in hetero-hypnosis, the subject really controls the response to suggestions. Actually, all hypnosis is really a matter of self-hypnosis. The subject enters into the hypnotic state when he is completely ready to do so. This may require from one to many attempts before it is achieved. Even if the subject insists that he wants to be hypnotized immediately, he may be resisting hypnosis unconsciously.

What is Self-Hypnosis?

November 30, 2009 · Filed Under Learn Self-Hypnosis · Comment 

self-hypnosisSelf-hypnosis is a highly suggestible state wherein the individual can direct suggestions to himself. It is a powerful tool in any therapeutic process, and highly motivated subjects can parallel the success of hetero-hypnosis through their own efforts. Self-hypnosis can be used as a palliative agent and can even afford lasting results in many areas of the organism.

Self-hypnosis can alleviate distressing symptoms, substitute strong responses for weak responses, help overcome bad habits, create good habits and help one’s power of concentration. The total personality is eventually changed to the point where it can function adequately in an increasingly difficult environment.

Power of Suggestion

November 23, 2009 · Filed Under Learn Self-Hypnosis · Comment 

power-of-suggestionAll of us like to think that our actions and reactions are a result of logical thought processes, but the fact is that suggestion influences our thinking a great deal more than logic. Consciously or unconsciously, our feelings about almost everything are largely molded by ready-made opinions and attitudes fostered by our mass methods of communication. We cannot buy a bar of soap or a filtered cigarette without paying tribute to the impact of suggestion.

Right or wrong, most of us place more confidence in what “they” say than we do in our own powers of reason. This is the basic reason why psychiatrists are in short supply. We distrust our own mental processes and want an expert to tell us what to think and feel.

Self-hypnosis – The Modern Approach to Successful Weight Loss

August 18, 2008 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Weight Loss · Comment 

The Hypnotic Diet
(Triple CD)

A revolutionary new approach to weight loss.

A person can definitely reduce to his goal-weight through techniques of self-hypnosis. It is a scientific aid and has increasing acceptance and use by physicians. Because so many people are plagued by doubts about the highly advertised miracle diets, self-suggestion is gaining greater recognition as a more desirable means of developing new lifelong sensible eating habits and maintaining weight-control.

Excessive eating is an acquired habit. To break any habit successfully, you must understand how the habit developed, and why it exists and persists.

Habits can be disciplined. They can be controlled or broken by the power of self-suggestion. All habit-breaking requires patience, stick-to-it-iveness and determination. Read more

What is Hypnosis and How Does it Work?

August 16, 2008 · Filed Under Hypnosis, Self-Improvement · Comment 

Hypnosis is made possible because all human beings are suggestible.

SUGGESTION is the key to hypnotism.

We are all susceptible to being influenced by other persons in varying degrees. Consequently, hypnotic phenomena can be demonstrated in practically everyone. In some instances the person has to be conditioned to techniques of hypnosis and self-hypnosis. Everyone is influenced by his own thinking. It is this autosuggestible component in all of us that also makes self-hypnosis possible.

Because of everyone’s susceptibility to suggestion, Emile Coue, the French psychologist, gained wide recognition and popularity as a result of his “Day by day in every way—I am feeling better and better” approach to problems. Read more
