Learning self-hypnosis is simple and helpful
February 22, 2022
Self-hypnosis can completely change the inner life of a person – faster, more intense, more lasting.
Man is born with the natural ability to go into hypnosis, probably since mankind exists, all the way back to Neanderthals or other early humans. Why then should hypnosis be complicated when Neanderthals already possessed this ability?
Hypnosis is simply a “state”, nothing more. This state is usually described as very pleasant, but it does not have to be necessarily and clearly perceived as such, although one is already in hypnosis.
Some people perceive this state more intensely than others, but the bottom line is that it doesn’t matter. Still others are in a hypnotic state so often in normal everyday life that they hardly perceive it as such. They think that they feel nothing at all, similar or equal to daydreaming. This can also happen.
Every hypnosis is a self-hypnosis
No one can be forced to do something in hypnosis that they don’t really want to do. All television formats that try to prove the opposite are so far-fetched that one realizes that it is pure manipulation and not hypnosis.
Self-hypnosis always aims at putting yourself in the state of hypnosis and giving yourself suggestions that are 100% chosen or thought up by yourself or at least in line with your goal.
That’s why you should be aware of the suggestions you listen to on a CD or MP3, because you don’t know what the speaker is “suggesting” to you – and suddenly there are words, phrases, ideas, metaphors in there that don’t suit you at all and will be rejected – so choose your words wisely, because they all have their effect.
How does self-hypnosis affect our body and mind?
Self-hypnosis is very positive for our health and well-being because it activates the parasympathetic nervous system. The parasympathetic nervous system is the part of the autonomic nervous system responsible for digestive processes, regeneration, cell regeneration, self-healing, learning, creativity, and building up energy reserves. It restores the inner balance of our organism.
Therefore, self-hypnosis has a positive effect not only on stress symptoms and sleep problems, but also helps against diseases of the immune system and all other physical symptoms, ailments and diseases, as well as injuries.
The parasympathetic nervous system is activated by love, trust, serenity, joy of life – and self-hypnosis.
So, with regular self-hypnosis, the parasympathetic nervous system is specifically activated and the sympathetic nervous system, which goes into high gear in stressful situations, is brought down in its function. The body is put into an optimal state in which self-healing powers can unfold.
Positive effect of self-hypnosis on psyche and mental state
Self-hypnosis also benefits the psyche and mental state in general. Accordingly, self-hypnosis leads to greater serenity, satisfaction, and well-being. The ability to concentrate and differentiate physical perception improves, the carousel of thoughts calms down, and annoying musings decreases. One simply feels better, is more centered, in balance, and can also deal with stressful situations much easier.
The ability to consciously relax and bring body, mind, and spirit back into harmony is greatly enhanced by self-hypnosis.
