You may already know the benefits of self hypnosis; you know that it is the fastest and easiest way to relieve or remove stress from your life; you know that with self hypnosis , you can change your mental patterns and easily remove any dependency to addictive substances but the question still remains, for most people, “How do I learn self hypnosis ?
What I am about to reveal to you in this short article may shock some readers but, please bear with me. My purpose is to open your mind to a reality that you may not have even remotely considered and give you a new way of looking at the concept of self hypnosis.
You see, you do not really have to learn self hypnosis because you already know how. The better question would be, “How can I use self hypnosis to achieve my goals?” Let me explain:
Think back to a day when you were a young child sitting in a classroom listening to a boring lecture on a topic that you cared little about. It may have been a warm, Spring day. The sun is streaming through the window beside your desk and you can feel its warmth on your face. Suddenly, as if by magic, you are no longer in that classroom. You are sitting next to a clear lake over a hundred miles away. Remember how real that felt? Remember how relaxed and at peace you were? At that point, you had just placed yourself under a self-induced trance.
Now, let's take it a step further. If the teacher, instead of slapping you in the back of the head, recognized what you had done and addressed you in a soft, soothing tone of voice, she might have said, “Today is a special day for you. find it very easy to learn and, for the rest of this day, you will soak up knowledge as a sponge soaks up water. Now, when I count to three, you will very nicely come back to this bedroom and begin to learn. … Two … Three; Wide awake now. ” She would have given you a gift beyond measure. Such is the nature of hypnosis .
The point is, we are all born with the ability to induce trance in ourselves. Unfortunately, this ability is not cultured and, over the years, we tend to forget how. It then becomes the job of the self hypnosis trainer to supply the lessons needed to effectively use the methods.
