Self Hypnosis Is A Great Tool
For Accomplishing Your Goals
Self hypnosis is a great tool for goal setting and for getting
help in carrying out and fulfilling your goals, whatever they
may be. This type of hypnosis can easily be learned if you
really want to use this excellent method as an aid for reaching
your goals. Below is a short generic view of the self hypnotic
process. Though lots of variations of this method have been
used, these are the basic steps you have to go through in
order to hypnotize yourself to accomplish whatever you want.
1 - Rank your goals from the most important goal to the less
important. If possible, your goals should be measurable. Start
with your most important goal. As soon as you can measure
progress for this goal (like pounds lost, if your goal is
weight loss, days of no smoking, if your goal is to stop smoking
etc.) continuing with your second most important goal, etc.
2 - For each goal, you should formulate appropriate suggestions
which means you have to transform your goals into specific
instructions to your subconscious mind on how to achieve each
3 - Relaxation - use the first minutes of your self hypnotic
session to get as relaxed as possible.
4 - Start your hypnotic induction phase by saying and repeating
outloud the hypnotic words you have chosen, thinking of these
words or listening to a hypnotic tape or CD customized for
your hypnotic and goal fulfillment needs. An example of an
induction can be:
"I am totally relaxed. I close my eyes and now I'm starting
to drift downward. I can feel a warmth that is spreading from
my feet and up my body. Every single part of my body is warm
and totally relaxed."
5 - Apply the hypnotic suggestions you've made for reaching
the specific goal you work with, say them outloud, think them
or use a tailored hypnotic tape or CD.
Before you start up your self hypnotic exercises you should
make a time schedule for it. Do your hypnotic sessions every
day, 5 minutes a day might be enough. Repeat your suggestions
as often as possible during the day.
You must also measure your progress; am I closer to the goal
now than I was last week? You should ask. This is the only
way you can find out if this method really will help you in
achieving your goals.
