Several years ago, I used Self-Hypnosis to overcome my nervousness in public and change bad habits. At the time, Self-Hypnosis was something totally new – so I bought a couple of books and read them all.
Did it work for me? You bet it did. I really had no idea how it worked but IT WORKED and that is ALL that MATTERS. I gained the results I wanted and I changed for the better because of Self Hypnosis.
There are so many Self Help techniques out there and most you may not know about or need to know about. Most are a waste of time. Not so with Self Hypnosis. It has got to be one of the most effective techniques for transforming your actions and thoughts. If you have not tried it – I highly recommend that you do.
Even if you do not follow my program, research SELF HYPNOSIS on the internet and you can be assured that it will transform your life completely.
How does it work? You have two minds – the conscious and the subconscious. The subconscious mind is more powerful of the two. It is the one responsible for your character including your behavior, how you think, your attitude and makes you who you are today.
Your subconscious mind can not distinguish between what is reality and what is not. It simply takes what you tell it and manifest it or “make it real”. It is like a huge powerful computer waiting to actualize your thoughts and self affirmations.
It can not distinguish between the reality now and the future reality that is yet to be realized.
This is the main reason why it is so effective in transforming people and changing their habits.
For any Suggestions and Affirmations you give it – it will see them as true and will immediately change your behavior to be consistent with your thoughts and actions.
Example: – say you lack social skills and are shy to talk to people socially. You can command your subconscious mind to change this behavior by affirming to yourself- “Every day when I meet people – I always know exactly what to say.”
Affirmations SHOULD only be worded in a POSITIVE form or tone. Very important.
Rather than focusing on the habit you want dropped, focus on the new habit you want to adopt. Example: – do not say “Every day I meet people I will stop being nervous.” Instead, say – “Every day I meet people, I am totally calm and relaxed”.
Another important consideration when making your suggestions, is to make them in the present tense.
Do not say – “I will become more focused every time I sit down to work”. Instead say – “I am becoming more focused every time I sit down to work.”
That is it for today. Good luck with Self Hypnosis. I will bring you another part later.
