How To Hypnotize Yourself Right Now!

Did you know that anyone with a little bit of knowledge can hypnotise themselves? Well it’s true and I can show you how to do this in about 5 minutes.

Forget all the hype that you have heard about hypnosis and look at it more as a technique similar to meditation. You don’t go under someone’s control, and you don’t turn into a chicken!

A hypnotic trance is really just a simple daydream state of mind that you can slip into at any time of the day. You still remain fully in control as you can snap out of daydream whenever you want – although sometimes it is so pleasant that you don’t want to!

he point is to tune down your conscious mind to allow greater access to your subconscious mind. This is where your habits, fears and emotions lay. A good therapist can take advantage of your trance state and place suggestions into your subconscious mind in order to “reprogram” you to change. You can of course do this yourself too.

Before learning any therapy, it is a good idea to learn how to get yourself into a hypnotic trance first. You should do this several times as you will get better each time you do it. Once you are comfortable with this, you can then move on to learning specific therapies.

How to get into trance

  1. Find a quiet place where you know you won’t be disturbed for around half an hour.Hypnosis
  2. Get yourself as comfortable, either seated or led down. Don’t cross your legs as they may hurt later.
  3. Close your eyes and take 10 slow deep breaths, saying to yourself the word “relax” on every out breath.
  4. Spend a few minutes focusing on your slow deep breathing. Feel how the air is cooler when you breathe in, and warmer when you breathe out.
  5. Imagine floating up and seeing the place you are in right now from this higher perspective. Have a good look around and see how things look.
  6. Now imagine floating above the building you are in. Again take a good look around you. Notice how the building looks, and the area around it looks from this perspective. Look our for any familiar landmarks.
  7. You can now float off to anywhere you wish. Float to a pleasant place that will relax you and make you feel happy. Many people choose a beach or a secluded garden, but it’s totally up to you.
  8. Spend some time relaxing. This is really good for your health and well-being.

How Can Hypnosis Help You Quit Smoking?

Hypnotherapy is well known for helping people quit smoking. However many people are skeptical simply because they don’t know how it works. Here we explain how hypnosis helps people quit smoking.

Hypnotic trance

By Jon Rhodes

By Jon Rhodes

A hypnotherapist first guides the subject into a hypnotic trance. This is in reaity just a natural daydream state of mind. The conscious mind is tuned down and relaxed, which allows information to be absorbed more deeply into the subconscious mind. Most people slip into a hypnotic trance state when they are engrossed in the TV or in a good book. That is why advertisers will spend millions getting their messages out there during TV programmes and films.

The subconscious mind

Talking to the subconscious mind is critical when it comes to changing habits like smoking. All our automatic habits and urges are controlled by the subconscious mind. This is why you can talk for hours to a smoker about the dangers of smoking, but yet they still persist. You are talking to them on a conscious level and this is usually not enough. They may rationally and consciously not want to smoke, but subconsciously they still want to.


A hypnotherapist will guide the subject into a trance and then talk to the subconscious mind. They will attempt to convince it to change it’s mind about smoking, using techniques such as metaphors, imagery, and clever use of language. This has a far greater chance of making an impact than normal conscious conversation.

Try it now!

I can talk about hypnotherapy for hours, but the best for for you to really understand its working is to try it for yourself. Here is a very powerful hypnotherapy session for you to try right now. Make sure you are not going to be disturbed for at least 20 minutes, get yourself comfortable and enjoy. Go with it, and allow it to help you to become a non smoker for life.

Although hypnotherapy will not do all the work for you, it will help reduce your urge to quit smoking, and strengthen your resolve to remain a non smoker. With just a little bit of effort you can become a non smoker for life. Good luck and enjoy!

How I Lost 41lbs in Six Months!


By Rosa Cruz

Ever since I was a young girl I’ve struggled keeping my weight down. While I’ve never been what would medically be described as “obese” I’ve always been on the overweight side of the equation. So have the vast majority of my family. It’s easy to blame it on genetics but since the start of the year I’ve been on a quest to take more responsibility for my life in all areas. This, of course, included my weight.

In January (2013) I began to keep a diary of the food I was eating and, at the end of the month, I totted up the meals and snacks and worked out how many calories I was eating. While I eat I pretty healthy, balanced diet it soon became clear that the meals I were eating were much bigger than I really required. Not only that but they’d often be a few cookies or a slice of cake afterwards, completely empty calories after I’d already had more than my fill.

A typical meal in my family home.

A typical meal in my family home.

Looking back it’s easy to see where this began. My mom (and her mom for that matter) always made large meals with more than enough for everybody, and as a child I was always encouraged to clean my plate and go back for more. While I know they both had the best of intentions it became clear that our family history of being overweight was much more down to eating habits than genetics.

The next month I decided do something about changing my habits. I decided to cut all my meal sizes in half…and felt incredibly hungry all the time and soon reverted back to my old habits. Was this something I wouldn’t be able to overcome?

Well one night I was trawling through Youtube looking for videos that would help me to lose weight and I stumbled across one that was called “Weight Loss Hypnosis”. I’d never tried hypnosis before but I had a friend who did use it to successfully quit smoking so I thought I’d give it a go. After listening to it I felt very relaxed but no different really. Then I saw a link on the video with an intriguing title “The Ultimate Hypnotic Weight Loss Solution – Click here to find out more” so I took a deep breath and clicked the link.

Through The Looking Glassgbhproduct

The page I landed on was one for a product called “Gastric Band Hypnotherapy”. I’d heard of gastric band surgery before of course, but never hypnotherapy. I was sceptical at first as I read through the usual sales pitch but something about it appealed to me. The idea I could mentally “cordon off” a section of my stomach and reduce my appetite was exactly what I needed. After thinking it through for a couple of minutes I decided to buy the pack, after all it was only $50 and came with a 60 day money back guarantee. I figured that if it didn’t work I could always get my money back, and if it did work I’d start losing weight at last AND save money from my food bill.

Almost immediately after purchase I received an email. Clearly I’d not read the page properly because I thought I was buying a physical product but instead all the files I needed, MP3s and an instruction book were sent straight to my email.

Wait, so I could start this right now?”

The instruction book was clear and concise. It recommended that I put myself on a liquid diet for a few days before beginning the audio portion of the program. The next day I went to the shops and stocked up on low fat milkshakes, soups, fruit juices and carrot juice.

The liquid diet was a shock to my system at first, day 1 was a real struggle, but I got through the day and the next two went by quite easily. In fact I actually felt more energetic, and the lack of food prep gave me time to do other things.

The MP3s awaited me on my iPod and I decided to do it by the book. It was recommended to listen to one (of the three) sessions each day. Each session only lasted about 15 minutes and it took you through the gastric band surgical procedure in your mind and encouraged you to imagine it was really happening to you.

After I’d listened to all three sessions I definitely did feel different. I went back to a more regular diet, but my desire to eat mass quantities was definitely quelled. It wasn’t as quick and noticeable as the actual surgery but gastric band hypnotherapy had me eating smaller meals and, as the months went by, the pounds started dropping off me.

Me...before and after.

Me…before and after.

At this point it was been nearly six months since I used the Gastric Band Hypnotherapy Pack and I’ve lost just over 40lbs. I’m down from 202lbs to 161lbs, I still have a little way to go before I hit my goal of 150lbs but I feel more in control of my weight than I ever have before.

For the open-minded I would completely recommend the Gastric Band Hypnotherapy pack, it has improved my life immensely and it could do the same for you.


Is A Past Life Experience ‘Therapy’?

By Richard Stone

Last week I had a very unusual client experience, she wanted to explore her past life to help her in her current one. Now, that’s not the normal type of request I get, and I could have gotten all po faced and declared, with haughty disdain, that I am the therapist and I should know better how to treat a problem, but I did not. I am not like that. I like to listen to my clients, there is a great power is listening, really listening, and taking what they say literally. If a client tells me they need ‘galumph’, then they get ‘galumph’, and possibly a little something else that we could all recognise as more mainstream in therapy terms too.

The key thing is, they get what they ask for, not at face value, I am keen on asking questions, taking a case history and understanding the structure of their problem. What I am talking about here is a metaphor, symbolism. To the client who asks for ‘galumph’, then ‘galumph’ is the name that represents what they yearn for – which as we all know, can be a little different to that which will do them the most good. It is the name for the way in which they work with the world about them. This lady wanted to have a past life experience, her presenting issue was a morbid fear of water; washing was a big challenge for her; she arrived immaculately dressed and thankfully smelling sweet, but each day the desire to be well presented came into direct conflict with her desire to stay dry. Offering her a glass of water got me a shudder and a sour look on her face. I asked her why she was so keen on a past life experience, her answer should have been obvious to me. “Because I know I drowned in a past life, but I need to be sure”

An age regression and then a past life regression is exactly what we did; and it was a spectacular thing to see – no one, but no one is that good an actor. Of the three previous lives she recalled, the principle recollection did indeed have a drowning. The woman in the comfy chair very vividly recalled and related an experience of being on a ship, feeling an intense cold, darkness and then nothing. That was at the end of course, prior to this we explored many different aspects of that life and took many ‘hard’ facts as requested. You see, my client was certain in her belief of past lives, and wanted me to gather as much info as I could along the way for her to do later research. Dates and names go a long way to helping the client believe it is not just ‘all in their minds.’ But, is this ‘therapy?’ For this case, I can only say. Yes it is.

I cannot agree with the position held by many, that all of your problem today come from bits left over from prior lives; for this woman I was simply working with her beliefs, her way of understanding the world about her and using that to good effect in her version of the here and now. The ‘therapy’ I used was nothing more than a suggestion, a simple suggestion. Her subconscious mind readily agreed to it, telling me so by the use of ideo-motor signals. It agreed it was time to leave the fear in the past where it came from. “Now you know for certain you were right, that once before, in another life, you drowned. It is time now to fully live in this life, only in this life, one life at a time, and let that poor woman from before rest in peace in her life”
