Your mind has two parts; your conscious mind and your subconscious mind. You will find that every day your behaviors, habits, attitudes, likes, and dislikes will not alter. The reason for this is because they have been programmed into us by life events. The influence of other people, past decisions, skills created, and repetition have all combined to develop the person that we are today. Most of the time, we like the way we are. But when we would like to transform, our old way of being stays set in us in spite of our conscious desire for change. This is because it is our subconscious mind that controls these things and in a struggle for control, the subconscious always wins over the conscious. This is where self-hypnosis can help us; it can be used to get in touch with the subconscious to transform it.
When discovering self-hypnosis, most people will initially learn to merely let themselves relax with their eyes shut and carry out a countdown on the exhale from 10 to 1. This will typically result in a light hypnotic condition which can be further deepened by picturing being in a peaceful place such as a beach, a garden, a forest, and so on. Visualization is powerful, by using it in this way your body comes to react as if it were literally in one of those places. The reason for this response is that your mind cannot tell the difference between what is genuine and what you clearly imagine.
You can easily learn self-hypnosis and you will find that the talent will expand over time and as you use it. Often, those who apply self-hypnosis find that they can become relaxed enough to get into a trance, but then they are puzzled for what to do next. When being hypnotised by a professional, you have somebody there to guide you through the therapy. That does not exist in self-hypnosis. In reality, the next step after putting yourself into a trance is self-therapy. It is vital to have your goal in mind. Before you begin your self-hypnosis session you need to know what your outcome is and how to reach it, then write a script. When you are in your self-hypnotic state simply reiterate your script over and over again in your mind.
During the regular course of a day a ordinary person goes into and out of an hypnotic state a number of times. This could be while they are reading a good book, watching a movie or television show, playing a musical instrument; or even being occupied with work will tend to result in you being able to narrow the focus of your attention and mental absorption. With self-hypnosis you intentionally produce the state so that you can access your subconscious and create transformations in your behaivors and give up old habits.
