Natural Hypnosis: "You Are Your Own Hypnotist"

NATURAL HYPNOSIS: “YOU ARE YOUR OWN HYPNOTIST” 

The following exercise will show you how you can utilize natural hypnosis in your daily life to better your experience. At the end of this summary you will find a separate worksheet that you can copy and work with if you are serious about making positive changes.

  “In those areas in which you are dissatisfied, you feel that you are powerless, or that your will is paralyzed, or that conditions continue despite what you think of as your intent. Yet, if you pay attention to your own quite conscious thoughts, you will find that you are concentrating upon precisely those negative aspects that so appall you. You are hypnotizing yourself quite effectively and so reinforcing the situation.  

You may say horrified, “What can I do? I am hypnotizing myself into my overweight condition (or my loneliness, or my poor health).” Yet in other facets of your life you may be hypnotizing yourself into wealth, accomplishment, satisfaction – and here you do not complain. The same issues are involved. The same principles are operating. In those positive life situations you are certain of your initiative. There is no doubt. Your beliefs become reality.  

In the unsatisfactory aspects, you must understand this: There is also no doubt. You are utterly convinced that you are sick, or poor, or lonely, or spiritually opaque, or unhappy.  

The results then, as easily and effortlessly follow. Natural hypnosis, in the terms given here, operates as well in one case as the other. What should you do then?

First, you must realize that you are your own hypnotist, inducing natural hypnosis. You must seize the initiative here as you have in other positive aspects of your life. Whatever the superficial reasons for your beliefs, you must say:

  ·  For a certain amount of time I will momentarily suspend what I believe in this area, and willfully accept the belief I want, I will pretend that I am under hypnosis, with myself as hypnotist and subject. For that time desire and belief will be one. There will be no conflict because I do this willingly. For this period I will completely alter my old beliefs. Even though I sit quietly, in my mind I will act as if the belief I want were mine completely.

Ø  If you feel that you are overweight, insert the weight that you think is ideal for you while you are following this exercise.

Ø  Imagine that you are healthy if you have the belief that you are not.

Ø  If you are lonely, believe that you are filled with the feeling of companionship instead.

Ø  If you are feeling poor, imagine that all of your financial needs are being met.

Ø  At this point do not think of the future, but only of the present.  

Ø  Realize that you are exerting your initiative to imagine such situations. Here there can be no comparisons with your normal situation. Do not compare the normal situation with that desired vision you hold. Use visual data, and/or words – whatever is most natural and comfortable for you as being as you desire. Only about 10 minutes is required at a time, once per day.

·   If you do this faithfully, within a month you will find the new conditions materializing in your experience. Your neurological structures will respond automatically. The unconscious will be aroused, bringing its greater powers to bear, bringing you the new results.

·    Do not obsess constantly over this exercise. Do not try to overdo this, to go through the entire day worrying about beliefs, for example. This can only cause you to contrast what you have with what you want. Forget the exercise when it is completed.

·    You will find yourself with impulses that arrive in line with these newly inserted beliefs, and then it is up to you to act on these and not ignore them. The initiative must be yours. You will never know unless you try the exercise.

Now, if you are in poor health, and have a physician, you had better continue going to them, because you still rely on that system of belief – but use these exercises as supplements to build up your own sense of inner health, and to protect you against any negative suggestions given by your doctor. Utilize the belief in physicians since you have it.

The point of power is in the present. You must thoroughly understand that, and then you can take hold of your life and begin to use natural hypnosis for your benefit in all areas. It works advantageously for each of you now in those portions of your lives with which you are pleased.

In all situations, it is highly important that you do not concentrate your main attention in that area of experience with which you are least satisfied. This acts as a deepening of hypnotic suggestion. Just reminding yourself of your other accomplishments will by itself operate in a constructive fashion, even if nothing else is done. Such focus of attention on positive aspects automatically pulls your energy away from the problem. It also builds up your own sense of worth and power as you are reminded of adequate performance at other levels of experience.

Whenever you are trying to rid yourself of a dilemma, make sure that you do not concentrate your attention upon it instead -  concentrating your attention on your dilemma acts to cut out other data, and to further intensify your focus upon your difficulty. When you break that focus, the problem is solved.

In any area, great clues can be received simply through paying more attention to the conscious thoughts that you have during the day, for each of them serve as minute suggestions, modifying your behavioral patterns and affecting bodily mechanisms and other perceived “facts” about your life.”
