Self-hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of mind that can be defined as a state of extreme relaxation, heightened awareness and increased suggestibility. It rewires the subconscious mind to help you overcome the self-limiting beliefs and replace them with new and positive ones. This trans state can also counter drug addictions and help relieve pain and hot flashes.
You have an hour or so where you can do anything you want. What would you do? Does watching TV sound good? Maybe you prefer to spend that hour surfing the net, chatting with friends of Facebook?
Well, here is an even better suggestion: use self-hypnosis and take your life up a notch or two each time! You see, self-hypnosis is a very natural process that we experience…it is as natural as breathing and sleeping.
As a matter of fact, every one of us enters this trance state that results in heightened awareness and suggestibility coupled with extreme relaxation day in and day out.
Whenever you first wake up in the morning and just before you go to bed, you are in this trance state.
Whenever you are doing something that is really absorbing you like reading a very interesting book, you are in a hypnotic trance. But here is the thing, only a handful can use this trance state to positively change their lives. Don’t you want to be one of these open-minded people?
Mind-Body Healing Benefits Of Self-Hypnosis
Here are some of the 3 things that self-hypnosis can do for you to change your life for the better:
1. Get Rid Of Negative Beliefs
How we act to events all depend on our beliefs and the emotions we subconsciously linked to it. If you have a terrible first-time public speaking experience, it is very likely that your fear of speaking to strangers or shaking hands came from it.
Are you someone who believes that you are not good enough? Perhaps you think that all men are cheats? Such negative beliefs can seriously damage your quality of life.
With self-hypnosis, such negative emotions, beliefs, and associations can be easily eliminated “permanently.”
2. Installing New And Positive Beliefs
Just as important as weeding out the negative beliefs is planting new and positive ones. Think about it: what if you have the belief system of someone successful…say like Bill Gates? How do you think you would feel and act towards work?
Would it make you more productive and confident in your ability to face challenges and perform tasks at hand? Would it help you make more money and have fun in the process?
Hell yeah it would! And with self-hypnosis, you can easily implant such beliefs in your subconscious, thanks to the heightened awareness and suggestibility that hypnosis-induced trance brings.
3. Alleviating Pain And Other Medical Uses
Yes, hypnosis has been recognized as a valid medical tool by the American Medical Association back in September 1958. Since then, more and more medical and psychological uses of self-hypnosis have been uncovered.
From relieving the pain and hot flashes experienced by cancer survivors, performing dental procedures without the use of anesthesia, reducing nausea and vomiting after chemotherapy, hypnosis has shown great promise.
Matter of fact, self-hypnosis has been used by soon-to-be non-smokers to get rid of the nicotine addiction that has been plaguing them for decades.
Self-hypnosis is not an end-all-be-all solution to all of our problems. But without a doubt, it has a lot of uses and benefits that everyone, including you, would definitely be interested in.
