Self-hypnosis is a relatively simple method to communicate with the subconscious mind on a light to medium trance level and to achieve stunning results. However, it is not possible to go into deep trance since a part of the conscious mind is busy with the external structure of the hypnosis (problem to be the hypnotherapist and the client at the same time). Therefore, simply allow the process to happen and free you from any potentially emerging compulsion having to control the process.


Self-hypnosis facilitates healing by programming our thoughts, and calibrating our mind to take control over our body. Here we simply let our body think what our mind wants it exactly to do – through affirmation or visualization (give it good reasons for doing so!) – and then act in ways consistent with what we have told our body.


Whatever we focus on as real and true, positively or negatively, makes the outcome happen internally and then begins to elicit from our body those responses that will assist us in being true. It becomes the reality our body accepts as desirable and true, and it reacts accordingly.


Self-hypnosis is usable with nearly all therapeutic applications. Examples include reducing pain, overcoming fears, becoming more self-confident, achieving goals, etc. However, regressions or other applications, which require a deeper trance level, are unachievable with self-hypnosis.


Some people are specifically talented with self-hypnosis, others have more difficulties getting access. Here especially people have an advantage who have been exercising self-hypnosis or meditation for a longer time and have mastered in doing so. Reason for this is that the subconscious mind is used to transition to a trance state and it goes easier in hypnosis even in not optimal circumstances. It is usually also easier for people who have been hypnotized by a hypnotherapist before as their subconscious mind already knows the way into trance.


Expectations towards self-hypnosis are often extremely high, but the effectiveness of this application highly depends on the user and the applied technique. So the more often you work with self-hypnosis, the better your desired results will become. Sometimes the results are instant, sometimes rapid or fast, and sometimes – when there is a lot of emotional clutter to deal with – it takes a lot of time and persistence. Nevertheless, it is definitely worth developing.
