Self-Hypnosis
 

Being relaxed and focused on your goal can work wonders. So why don’t you teach yourself self-hypnosis. It’s simple, and it can help to transform how you think and feel about life’s stresses and anxieties.
 
 
This is just one method: of self-hypnosis  
 
Relaxation is an art form.
 
 
Just follow these simple steps.
 
Take yourself to a quiet place where you know you will not be disturbed and tell yourself that you have 20 minutes to work on helping yourself.
 
Step One relax your muscles
 
Get comfortable, then starting with your feet and working your way to your head tense and relax all the muscle groups in your body one by one. If after tensing and relaxing a certain muscle group it still feels tense do it again.
 
Step Two breathe
 
Breathe deeply hold let go
Repeat the process
Say to yourself ‘I am 2 times as relaxed’
Repeat the process
Say to yourself ‘I am more relaxed still’
 
Breathe normally
Focus on your breathing
Feel the air going down
Do this 10 times
Each time say – ‘deeply relaxed’
 
Step three clear your mind
 
Notice the random thoughts in your mind
Acknowledge each thought as it appears in front of you
Say to the thought ‘come back later’
Let it drift away watch it get smaller and smaller
Repeat with next thought that comes
Continue until the thoughts slow down
 
Let your subconscious take over (you may hear or see a kaleidoscope of images)
 
Step four visualise
 
Take yourself to a favourite safe place – perhaps a walk through a wood, or a lovely beach you choose. What you choose will be right for you. Settle down there and enjoy your time with yourself – this is time just for you
 
Step five self esteem
 
Visualise a mirror
See yourself looking into a mirror; see your reflection looking back at you
  • See your image changing to the you you want to be.
  • Make that image as clear and as brightly coloured as you can.
  • See yourself being the person you want to be.
  • How does the new you behave?
  • How do you stand?
  • What are you wearing? And so on.
  • Make this desired image of the new confident you stronger in your minds eye.
  • And as you look the image is becoming brighter, clearer, stronger, and even more attractive.
Step six return
 
When you know that you have seen that image as strongly as you can today
 
Look back into the mirror and see the new you, very bright
Say ‘see you soon’
Turn away and walk back to your safe place
 
Step seven
 
Wake…stretch. . .enjoy the feeling
 
Now you can do this as often as you need to. In fact, practise makes perfect.
