Benefits of Self Hypnosis

November 29, 2019

What are the benefits of self hypnosis?

Self-hypnosis or hypnotherapy can improve your lifestyle.  Here is how hypnosis works and what it could mean to you in everyday life.

Hypnosis is an induced trance state resembling sleep, characterized by heightened susceptibility to suggestion.  The therapist induces hypnosis by gently guiding you into a relaxed and trance state using imagery of serenity, calm and peace.  When you enter this state, the conscious mind takes a backseat and the subconscious mind opens up to suggestion.

How can hypnosis be beneficial in your life? By opening up your subconscious mind to suggestion, you will be able to reprogram the subconscious mind to rid yourself of the bad habits or problems you are experiencing in your daily life due to decisions you have made or actions you have taken.

It has been scientifically proven that the subconscious mind controls most of our natural reactions, how we handle or behave in various situations. When determining how to react, the subconscious mind will refer to the programming it has received over the years. Your subconscious will link a certain current situation to a traumatic or unpleasant experience from your past and your immediate reaction, be it anger, smoking, overeating, binging, etc., will be based on those past negative events.

Many problems can be effectively and permanently addressed through hypnosis.  Hypnotherapy has been proven to be safe, with no risk of damage or side effects. Only a willing participant can be hypnotized. You can also hypnotize yourself.

If you are considering hypnosis but worry that it may be taking you on the long slow road to hippy skirts and backpacking through India in search of your Guru you can relax.
Many high performance athletes and sports people use self hypnosis to break through fears, keep themselves focused and improve their performance. It has been found to help those athletes who have been injured to heal faster and stronger using self hypnosis techniques.
Many of these athletes use mantras or short simple phrases coming to of their hypnosis sessions to push them through their pain barriers, or keep them focused when all they really want to do is stop and rest.
Business owners and entrepreneurs use hypnosis to stay focused in work and as a start off point to increase creativity and brainstorming. With many of us allowing our fears to curtail the “what could be” in our lives, finding a way to break through that, replacing those fears with positive statements instead can help greatly in business.
Addictive behaviour can also be helped with self hypnosis techniques. Smokers, dieters, and those wanting to reduce time with anything disrupting everyday life and success can find these tools can reprogram their patterns. If you have a major addiction however, it is a good idea to seek medical help, using the hypnosis as only part of the whole method.
Chronic illness can also be helped with hypnosis. TO give an idea of the power of thought, a study of patients with Cystic Fibrosis, a genetic condition that is incurable, found that hypnotherapy was able to improve their health, helping them to breathe easier (this condition fills the lungs with liquid),

reducing anxiety and improves the ability to clear the lungs without needing to cough chronically.
Cancer patients have long used self hypnosis as part of their battle against their illness. Being able to visualize their body healing itself and being victorious not only have been shown to be effective in helping the healing process, but has reduced the anxiety attached to the illness considerably. The hypnosis helps people with chronic illness take charge of their body- when often the illness and the related treatments can make you feel as though you have to let go of your own decision making and no longer have any control over it. That alone makes it a worth while tool.
Mental health struggles with things such as panic attacks, depression and self harm can also be helped with hypnotherapy. Again, if you are very depressed or struggling with self harm in such a way that you are endangering your life or the people around you, it is important to use hypnosis in conjunction with professional advice and treatment. However learning to use the simple but effective breathing and mantra repetition techniques can help you pre-empt episodes before you lose control, or help you reconfigure your thought patterns so any negative behaviour is reduced.
Many doctors, health professionals, trainers and advisors recommend hypnosis as an excellent tool. Using it in your own life is an excellent way to achieve your own personal goals. With so many people before you have found it an excellent tool to solve their own issues, you can be assured you are using something that really does work and is considered useful.

What Hypnosis is Not!

What Hypnosis is NOT
Like many things that have become popularized by celebrity, there are a few misconceptions about self hypnosis that are good to clear up at the start. Before we look at what self hypnosis IS, let’s look at what it is NOT
Self hypnosis doesn’t mean you are allowing someone to control your mind with a soundtrack. No one is able to control our minds. What it does do is help us solve our own problems and answer our own questions. Trust your own strength and power and know your mind isn’t going to let just anyone take over!
Hypnosis isn’t sleeping. While you move in and out of a hypnotic state as you fall asleep or wake up, hypnosis is that time between wakefulness and sleeping. That lovely relaxed state that drifts you between conscious and unconscious thought. You may sometimes fall asleep during or after a meditation, but that is because you relax. Falling asleep during hypnosis often indicates the level of stress you are under – that you are having trouble relaxing on a long term basis, and the hypnosis-induced sleep is simply your body telling you that you are sleep-deprived and need to catch-up on sleep.
