What can a person do to attract more success in their life? What if they want to let go of a habit, chronic pain, fear or phobia, or they want to manage their weight or stop smoking? Any one of these and a host of other issues can either be helped or resolved through the power of the subconscious mind.
The subconscious makes up the majority of the human mind. And since that is where our habits and emotions are, the subconscious is where true change occurs. The best way to communicate with the subconscious mind is through hypnosis, either with a certified hypotherapist or with self-hypnosis. After all, most hypnotherapists would agree that “all hypnosis is self-hypnosis”. This is due to the fact that the individual is always in control.
Self-Hypnosis can be practiced daily, assisting individuals in creating positive change in their life. The steps for self-hypnosis include relaxation and visualization, in addition to using positive thoughts to create the positive change. In fact, the mind is not motivated to make the change when negative words are used such as “lose” weight, or “quit” smoking. It is more beneficial to use positive words such as smoke “free” or “ideal” weight.
Self-hypnosis should be done when a person is alert, and they are able to relax without falling asleep. They begin by taking deep breaths and slowly counting from five to one as they feel themselves relaxing. A positive thought is focused on such as: “I am happy, healthy, and at my ideal weight”, as they imagine themselves in a peaceful place.
After several minutes of repeating the thought, the person will become alert again by counting from one to five and saying to themselves “when I open my eyes, I will feel alert and refreshed”. As a result of practicing self-hypnosis, an individual will not only reduce stress, they will bring about positive change.

I’ve noticed that the information for many of the authors on this blog has changed since I originally posted their articles. Where possible, I have tried to provide updated links where links have changed. Where I could not find new links to replace dead links, I first looked for an archived version of the site. Where that failed, I unlinked the dead links and display them as text. If you are the author of this article and you would like to provide updated links or change any other information in the author box, please contact me, and I will be happy to update the information.
