Most fears are irrational, usually have little or no basis in fact, and yet are very real to us. Often times, they are ingrained deep within you, having been implanted by an event or events that we don’t even remember. Hypnosis can be of great help to end these fears. Self-hypnosis can free you up by allowing you to speak to your subconscious mind where these fears lie.
Control irrational fear
Fear arises, often without warning, and begins to alter our body chemistry. The idea of public speaking, a dog, standing up to your boss, asking someone out on a date, or whatever triggers it, begins to alter your body chemistry, pumping out insulin, making your pulse rise, your stomach tightening, and a variety of other physiological changes. These effects are very real to you, and yet there is no basis for any of them. You should simply take them as proof of the power of your subconscious mind. This is a power that you will be able to harness and harness as you learn to self-hypnosis.
Your hypnotic induction
The process is simple; You are going to relax your conscious mind to get it out of the way so that you can communicate directly with your subconscious. A basic technique for doing this is to start slowing your breath to long, deep breaths on a regular basis. Inhale and exhale, and as you do so, begin to tell your body to relax and release, with each breath relaxing more and more, going deeper and deeper, relaxing totally and completely. It can be helpful to imagine that you are going down in an elevator and you can watch each floor number go by as you go down. Start with 10 and count down to 1. By the time you get to 1, you will be at least in a mild state of hypnosis (each time you practice this technique you should go even deeper).
The script, giving itself hypnotic suggestions
Now that you are in hypnosis, it is time to start giving yourself suggestions so that you can release fear. This is done with a script that you prepare before starting this process. In the script, a good approach is to see yourself successfully achieving what you fear. The script should be made up of positive expressions and experiences. For example, if your fear is public speaking, visualize yourself going on stage confident and prepared. During the speech, your word flows freely, you maintain eye contact with the audience, and you can see that they are understanding you. She looks forward to the question and answer session that follows.
Now move on to the next day. He is glad he gave the speech and receives an overjoyed visitor thinking about it now. You realize that speaking in public is nothing to fear and that you have a lot to say that people want to hear.
Conclusion of your session
As you ponder these thoughts, step into the elevator that brought you here and recount and tell yourself that you are waking up from self-hypnosis as you go up.
