Change Your Life with Self Hypnosis really could change your life. Unlike most books on self hypnosis this is not a recipe book where you turn to the chapter about your problem and then struggle to bring about the changes your heart desires. This book is a step by step approach that leads you to a Mastery of Self Hypnosis. It takes you through the basics – ensuring you understand fully how easy it is to take yourself into a self hypnotic trance before introducing you to the ideas and methods of introducing psychological, physical, and spiritual changes in your BodyMind.
The approach is straightforward with four sections. These sections teach you the skills you need, and then approach problems of Mind, Body and finally Spirit.
The Skills section teaches you the important differences between hypnosis and self hypnosis. You are introduced to two simple, foolproof, methods of taking yourself into a trance.
A lack of an ability to visualise frequently discourages people from engaging in beneficial activities like guided meditations and other mind training activities. The author explains how everyone can do what is necessary to create the mental images you need in order to change your life for the better. Another area that frequently causes failure with self-hypnosis and affirmations is the wording of the self-suggestions. The problems are explained and you are shown how easily you can create powerful mind and behaviour altering suggestions to re-program your subconscious mind.
In this section the author looks at four basic problem areas that prevent life being lived to the full: confidence, self-esteem, anxiety and how to resolve relationship difficulties by working on yourself. Phobias are also covered – including agoraphobia/social phobia. Although phobias do not affect a most people they can be severely disabling and so solutions are provided here.
The Body section teaches you how to use your mind to influence your body. Frequently Western medicine lets us down in those very areas where we most need help. This section gives you some general guidance on how to use self hypnosis for self healing. It then covers in detail some common problem areas that you may need help with: physical pain, excess weight, smoking, blood pressure and sleep.
Here the author lifts the bar a little so that you can begin to stretch yourself and fully appreciate the power of your own mind. The earlier sections dealt with fixing problems that prevented you from living a normal, healthy life. In Spirit he moves on to demonstrate how you can use your mastery of self hypnosis to begin the process of creating the life you want rather than the life you have. Here you will find an introduction to the idea that we create our own reality along with techniques to increase happiness, wealth, and freedom in your life.
