The Best Self Hypnosis Techniques For Self Improvement

By Louise Servage

Learning self hypnosis can be a lot easier than it sounds. It can be learned in the quiet of your own home without spending any money on things like books, audio tapes, expensive visits to hypnotists or spiritual gurus.

By practicing a few of the best self hypnosis techniques, you can achieve a state of deep relaxation. Finding yourself a comfortable place where you will have complete quiet is one of the first things you should aim for. You don't want to be disturbed while trying to learn self hypnosis.

You will also need to learn how to completely relax all your muscles and whether this is best achieved by sitting up or laying down. Learning what you need to do once in a subconscious state is also very important.

Going Under

Reaching a subconscious state can often be referred to as "going under". Generally this means that the conscious mind is "asleep" and the subconscious mind is more accessible. You will be able to achieve this yourself after learning some basic self hypnosis techniques.

It should be noted that various people use various techniques to put themselves under so use what works for you. You might also come up with self hypnosis techniques of your own that aren't listed here.

Firstly chose a comfortable and quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Reaching the subconscious state can often take quite a while, so you need to know that you will not be interrupted for some time. you need a place that will offer you complete solitude and sanctuary. Remember to turn off phones and any other items that may disturb you, you will need complete concentration.

Focus on your breathing, relax every muscle in your body and concentrate on not thinking about anything at all. Soon, you'll find yourself in a deep state of relaxation. This is as close to sleep as you can get without actually falling asleep. Once there, you can do whatever you want to do.

Many people often have a manuscript they use while they are under to help them achieve a goal. The script is often a mantra to aid in things like quitting smoking, dieting, improving their memory or to learn self love. Most often it is used for some form of self improvement.

It is your own personal preference as to what goals you wish to achieve with self hypnosis. It may be for self improvement, it could just as easily be simply a way to relax from the stresses of day to day life. Only you will know what you want and need. With enough practice, you will soon become a master at self hypnosis.
