Hypnosis and Self-Hypnosis

There is a great deal of information on this website about hypnosis and self-hypnosis. There are also self-hypnosis induction recordings available here. In addition there are several chapters on a variety of hypnosis related topics in my book Your Genius Within.

This forum is in an opportunity to share your experiences with hypnosis and self-hypnosis. Perhaps you have seen a hypnotist in a group setting to lose weight or quit smoking. Maybe you attended a performance by a stage hypnotist. Or you might be utilizing some of the resources and recordings from this website.

Whatever your experiences with hypnosis, here is an opportunity to share them, to get answers to questions and communicate with your fellow explorers.

  1. I would love to hear from more people who have been trying self hypnosis. If you’ve tried and not enjoyed much success yet, please tell your story here so that I and other participants can learn from your experiences and maybe give you some helpful advice.

  2. Self hypnosis is powerful! I am currently struggling with a cold, or maybe it’s the flu. Last night I felt really horrible and I was having trouble falling asleep. I think I had a little fever. It occurred to me that the way I was feeling was caused by my bodies fight against the germs that were making me sick. I starting repeating “I welcome the healing power of my inner mind and body.” I relaxed and fell asleep. I am not cured today, but I feel a lot better. And I had a decent night of sleep.

    • Van, I’m happy to read that you have had positive self hypnosis results. These techniques may seem simple but they can prove to be very powerful indeed. I recently taught a self hypnosis technique to a man suffering from chronic and severe pain from late stage cancer. Using the self hypnosis he has been able to be less freaked out by the idea that cancer is overtaking and smothering his healthy cells. Instead, he visualizes that out-of-town guests have overstayed their welcome. It’s not a pretty picture but somehow this more playful way of thinking about a tragic condition has helped him cope more effectively with the pain.

      Van, your use of a positive hypnotic phrase to encourage your healing and restful sleep was really a well designed plan. It sometimes takes creativity to find a way to change a negative experience into a positive life enhancing one.

  3. Your book Your Genius Within has really opened my eyes (perhaps I should say closed my eyes!) to self hypnois. I have deveolped self hypnosis routines that help me to better cope physical ailments, to relax, to feel more emotionally balanced and to interact with my children in a more positive way. It’s life changing! Thank you!
