Hypnosis can be done by a hypnotherapist, or as self hypnosis. To begin the practice of self hypnosis, you must understand some basic knowledge.

Self hypnosis is simply hypnosis performed by an individual, by deep relaxation, and inducing oneself into a hypnotic state. With the practice self hypnosis, a person can realign their subconscious thinking, with what his conscious mind wants. This process can help improve your life in many areas, including health.

• Concerns about hypnosis
There are a few concerns about the practice of hypnosis, including the fear of mind control. If this is your fear, it shows you will have a better success with self hypnosis easier, since you are in complete control of the process. Another fear is of being unable to wake up while being hypnotized. Do not be concerned with this. You will awaken naturally just as you do after a nap.
• How to start self hypnosis
Get into a comfortable position. Bring yourself in a hypnotic state, in which your mind is very focused. While in this hypnotic state, make positive suggestions to yourself.
• The script
Your script is the set of transformational words you repeat to yourself during a self hypnosis session. It is also beneficial to repeat them throughout the day, as an affirmation. A good script is short; short enough to be easily memorized. It also needs to be positive. It has to be phrased as if you’ve already completed your goal. You don’t need to believe your script, it’s there to convince you of a different way of being. If you’ve already believed it, you wouldn’t need to keep repeating it to yourself!
