Self Hypnosis

In this article we will briefly outline what Hypnosis and self hypnosis are; how to perform self hypnosis on your self and how to construct a hypnotic script to enable you to perform self hypnosis.

What is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is when you or someone else deliberately alters your state of consciousness to the Alpha brain wave region for the purposes of directing specific suggestions directly to your subconscious mind. The Alpha brain wave is when you are relaxed but alert. While you are in this state the conscious mind becomes quiet and passive which makes it possible for suggestions to be made, although your are still conscious and aware, you remain oblivious to external distractions.

Hypnosis is a lot like daydreaming. When you daydream you alter your state of consciousness to the Alpha brain region also. All the while, you are conscious and aware, yet you remain oblivious to external distractions. You may have experienced this state when you have been on a journey and get to your destination and been completely oblivious to what was going on around you. But if something were to catch your attention you would immediately become alert.  

There are many myths about Hypnosis. Some believe you can be made to do things against your will; that you can be hypnotised without consent; that some individuals cant be hypnotised; only weak minded people can be hypnotised; a hypnotised person is in a trance or is unconscious; a person can get stuck in hypnosis and deep hypnosis is needed to get good results. Im sure there are many more.

In actual fact, it is impossible to hypnotise someone without first gaining their consent to do so. There has to be a willingness on their part to be hypnotised.

There is a common misconception with hypnosis that you relinquish control when in a hypnotic trance, when in reality you are taking back control when in a trance state.

When you are in a hypnotic trance you are aware of everything being said, as you can hear everything. You are aware of where you are and what is happening and you can easily accept or reject any suggestions being made. So dont be put off by all the myths you may have heard about Hypnosis.

Hypnosis is a wonderful and effective to tool to help you achieve your goals, change habits and limiting beliefs.


If you suffer from mental or other health problems you should seek advice from your doctor first before attempting to use hypnosis. You should have your doctor sanction the use of hypnosis for the treatment you intend to use it for. If you participate in the consumption of illegal drugs it is not advisable to use hypnosis. Illegal drugs can adversely effect the hypnotic process and any suggestions being made.

Hypnosis should never be used when in control of any vehicle or heavy machinery. It should never be used when your full attention is required to undertake any task.


Self Hypnosis

Self hypnosis has a wide variety of therapeutic applications. It is very effective in alleviating stress and tension; it is a great way to help you lose weight, be more successful, quit smoking, improve concentration and memory, overcome shyness and have more self-confidence. Self hypnosis gives you the ability to focus your energy on creating a self induced relaxed state of mind and body. When you are in a trance state you can focus your energy on specific goals. Self hypnosis can be used on anything that would depend on your own efforts.


The different stages of the Hypnosis script

There are three basic parts to any hypnosis script which have to be carried out in the order below:

  1. Induction This is the part where you induce the relaxed alpha state.
  2. Suggestions This is where the changes you want to make are given; and
  3. Awakening This part is used to bring you out of the hypnotic state.

There is a fourth element which can be used if you find it difficult to get into a relaxed alpha state. This part sits between the induction and suggestions. It is called a deepener. As its name suggests, it is used to produce a deeper relaxed state.
