To begin, the first thing
we should have clear within our mind is this; All Hypnosis is
Self Hypnosis. Whether experienced on one's own, or led by a
guide, that is to say another hypnotist, or magical dream weaver
if you will, there is no two ways about it, including covert hypnosis,
and that of subliminal
suggestion; all hypnosis is consider self hypnosis,
because in the end we all do it in our own heads, our own way, and are
always under our own control to accept and utilize, or ignore and reject,
in whole or in part.
The experience of hypnosis
is different each and every time we practice this wonderful life enhancing
art, which goes by so many names such as that of meditation, prayer, visualization,
guided imagery, and many more.
Hypnosis, is not
a magical cure for anything, but instead a magical tool used by millions
from the beginning of mankind's history to achieve
goals, improve abilities such as sexual
enhancements and sports
improvements, activate and enhance the bodies ability to achieve miraculous
feats such as, natural
breast enlargement, improving
health, healing all kinds of physical and mental ailments, break through
any and all barriers, accelerate in all areas of learning,
remove completely all of one's fears,
and enhances every aspect and topic in life that you can think of easily.
The second thing we now all
have to understand is this; Hypnosis is a natural phenomenon,
but it is also a skill, and like any skill, to have control of it, we
need to learn about it, and practice it. Self Hypnosis can be
learned by anyone that has the ability to focus on one thing. That means
that if you can sit down and read a book, watch a movie, or daydream for
a couple of minutes, you can learn the art of self hypnosis.
In fact, if you are daydreaming, or have ever daydreamed, then I can tell
you, that you have already done and experienced self hypnosis,
because daydreaming is just another name for what we love to call self
Now for a little explanation
as to what exactly is hypnosis. Hypnosis is simply a
level of mind, meaning this; the frequency at which your brain is operating.
The faster it operates, the higher the frequency, and the more wide awake
one tends to be, and the lower the frequency, the deeper into the state
of mind known as hypnosis we go.
are basically four levels of mind of which we speak, with many levels
in between, but the primary ones are, Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta.
Beta: is our normally wide awake state of
consciousness at which we operate throughout the day.
Alpha: is the first level of trance
we experience, and is considered the mildest, yet still useful level of
Theta: is considered a deeper level of hypnosis,
and also has a few other terms of which you will learn about within other
sections of this website, Hypnotic Advancements.
Delta: is a level of deep sleep which the
body uses for tissue repair and recovery. The interesting thing about
these levels is that we experience them every day of our lives. Once we
get going in the morning we are in Beta, and as we head off to dream land
at the end of our day, we pass through both the Alpha and Theta levels
as we fall asleep soon entering REM, our dream state, and then Delta,
then cycling through REM and Delta until we awaken again.
Our lives are full of hypnoidal
contacts and relationships that are referred to by psychologists as waking
hypnosis. Repetitive radio, television commercials, advertising
propaganda, and good actors heighten our attention span in a meaningful
manner and enhance our suggestibility by getting us into acceptably suggestible
states called rapport. When watching an interesting motion picture,
our attention is focused on the screen, and we soon enter into a hypnoidal
state. Varying degrees of emotion are registered as we identify
with the action in the film. Whenever the necessity for consensus reality
thinking is obviated, a type of waking hypnosis occurs. Without
realizing it, we are in a hypnoidal state and on the
way to being effectively hypnotized. Waking hypnosis
here occurs as the result of utilizing ordinary experiences.
Hypnosis or trance
can be defined as a state of mind ranging within a multitude of depths
that allow for greater learning, and astounding control of one’s
body and mind. I believe that every state of mind is a trance
of a sort, but when concentration is directed to thought, or focused within,
profound realizations occur, and levels of acceptance to hypnotic
suggestions are heightened. You can also visit our defining
hypnosis page for more complete and varied definitions and elaborations.
At deeper levels of this trance
phenomenon, it seems that all one has left, is “mind”.
Now, what really is mind, but a myriad of thoughts, images, internally
heard sounds and sensations, all possibly occurring at once. Yet still
being far off, who knows where this “mind” is, seemingly everywhere
and anywhere all at one time, one still remains connected, and grounded
by the soothing voice of their dream weaving guide.
Hypnosis, on one’s
own, termed self hypnosis, at times can also be quite profound
and similar to the experience above. At times the mind seems to go for
a ride, a voyage, riding a killer whale while feeling the ocean spray
and wind, yet being able to redirect one’s own thoughts and work
with one’s goals, whether they be learning, healing, or simply changing
our patterns, so come now, and take a magical trip with me, to that mystical,
magical place within your mind, using that wonderfully magical tool, called

In this state of heightened awareness and suggestibility,
we are more capable of influencing our bodily functions and providing
ourselves with post
hypnotic suggestions. The main questions I get from those unfamiliar
with hypnosis are, "how does one really know when they
have achieved it? Are there signs? Is one way of doing it easier or
better than another? I am a very hyper person and just relaxing enough
to "listen" to myself is hard enough, but I would honestly
love to learn how, any suggestions?"
The answers provided could be as varied a number as there are hypnotists.
Hypnosis is a very natural everyday experience. Whenever someone
asks me about hypnosis, I tell him/her that at the very least
they enter trance twice a day. Those times would be a momentary
passing through the state of trance as they are going to sleep,
and as they are waking up. It is that dreamy point in time, when you
are very relaxed, and some people will have visions, or simply just
lose perception of their environment, and/or body.
People tend to enter trance, when they are really involved
in a good book, or watching an amazing movie which just draws them in,
deeper as they themselves become part of the scene, and their emotions
begin to change along with the setting, at times causing tears, fears,
sadness or laughter. With experience one will find that the trance
experience is not only different for everyone, but it is somewhat different
every time one experiences it.
of hypnosis will also be quite different for someone as an
observer, compared to the participant, and these signs will change throughout
the trance, as the level of depth and involvement of the trance
progresses. Some people will say they feel a pulling sensation. I myself
find that I attain a complete bodily anesthesia,
yet attaining a profound awareness of my own mental activity. If I happen
to be using music to enhance or change my trance, within moments
I begin to hear the sounds as though the speakers are mounted right
inside my head, and I hear the music internally, which is really quite
cool.(Who needs drugs with an experience like that?)
The best way to enter the
state of hypnosis is again different for everyone. Some people
prefer to lie down, while others like to sit. Some people even prefer
to stand as they are learning hypnosis, so that they can maintain
some conscious awareness, preventing themselves from falling asleep.
Self Hypnosis Routine and Suggestions:
1- Pick a time, and place when you won’t
have any distractions.
2- Lie, or sit down comfortably wearing loose clothing with your hands
at your sides, and your legs uncrossed.
3- Some people like to put on some soft music ( Baroque or ocean waves
are very good, because they help tune the heart rate to about sixty
4- Then you can gently close your eyes, and with your eyes closed, turn
your eyes up to about the 10/11 o’clock position. At this point
take one of your fingers, and lightly touch the back high center point
of your head paying attention to the sensation of the touch as you replace
your hand at your side.
5- Then take a slow deep breath, and hold it for about three seconds,
and slowly let it out as you say to yourself the word “deeper”,
while you maintain your attention on the sensation you last felt from
the touch to your head. (Repeat this step about five times, seven if
you feel you need to relax further)
6- During your fifth or seventh breath, tell yourself that upon the
complete exhalation of your next breath you will find yourself in a
special place. This special place is your place, your place of solitude,
your place to relax. You might have a special place in mind, or you
might just want to wait and experience what your special imaginary place
your mind comes up with.
7- Once you have had enough rest, or finished your internal work, (suggestions,
visualizations, or a life challenge) which you set yourself to do, simply
state to yourself that after a count of one to five, you will open your
eyes fully refreshed, and feeling much better than before.
One of the best books I
have found on the topic of self hypnosis would have to be Brian
A Complete Manual for Health and Self-Change”. 27 chapters,
and 283 pages, of easy to read and understand, yet very in depth, and
extremely explanatory information, teaching the reader about self
hypnosis, methods of achieving it along with directions as to how
to form your post hypnotic suggestions. Information on using
guided imagery, the language of hypnotic suggestion,
NINE varieties of self hypnosis techniques, stress management,
relief from allergies
and asthma, thin
sleep problems, maximizing
sports performance, and more. Truly an incredibly masterful piece
of work, and tremendously useful not only to the beginner, but also
to the advanced learner of hypnosis. Those interested can easily
purchase the book directly through the link above.
The following free self
hypnosis scripts will help you achieve a light or medium state
of hypnosis, but with practice or for those, and it could very
well be you, considered naturals, much deeper states of hypnosis.
For those who would like to explore a little further, I have provided
another free hypnosis script, of Caprio's
4-A's Method of Self Hypnosis (Caprio, "Healing
Yourself with Self Hypnosis", 1998) just
a little ways down the page.
1 ) Physical Relaxation: To
bring oneself to a state of complete physical relaxation is the first
- Sit or lay down in a comfortable, distraction free environment and
close your eyes.
- Direct your eyes up to the 10:00 o’clock position and close
them holding this position.
- Take a long, deep breath, and hold it for a few seconds, then let
it out slowly. As you do, allow yourself to sink deeply into your seat.
- Repeat the long deep breath, holding it for a few seconds, and then
slowly letting it go, as you sink deeper into your chair.
- Take a third long deep breath, holding it for a few seconds, and then
as you slowly release it, allow a wave of relaxation to flow from the
top of your head down to the tips of your toes.
2 ) Eyelid Relaxation: When
you are ready, place your attention on your eye muscles and relax every
muscle and nerve in and around your eyes to the point that they just
won’t work. When you are sure they are so relaxed, that as long
as you hold onto this quality of relaxation, they just won’t work,
test them to make sure, they won’t work.
- Once you have tested your eyes and found them not to work, you know
that your unconscious imagination has taken charge, bypassing
3 ) Body Relaxation: At
this point focus your attention on a point at the top center of your
mind and take a deep relaxing breath, then as you release the breath
imagine a wave of relaxation flowing from the top of your head, flowing
through your body out the tips of your toes.
- Repeat this final step 3 or 4 times, doubling the relaxation you have
4 ) Mental Relaxation: Once
you have achieved physical relaxation, you can proceed to mental relaxation.
- Begin slowly counting backwards from 100, repeating the words deeper
relaxed, like this:
100 – deeper relaxed
99 – deeper relaxed
98 – deeper relaxed …
- With the passing of each number, imagine pushing it away, out of your
- By the time you reach 97, 96, or possibly 95, push all the numbers
left out of your mind, completely banishing them.
- At this point, one can begin to immediately install positive suggestions,
simply relax for a while and rejuvenate your mind and body, go on a
quick trip to your favorite place on earth or the universe at large,
or you can simply allow yourself to have a nice relaxing sleep.
- It is suggested that when it is desired to leave the hypnotic state,
a counting out procedure of 1 to 5 be applied, while providing suggestions
of feeling wonderful, fully refreshed, and much better than before be
Method of Free Self Hypnosis
The 4-A’s method of self hypnosis
is a step-by-step guideline used to help one relax and induce the hypnotic
state in order to successfully respond to self-given hypnotic suggestions.
The technique could be applied to a myriad number
of challenges in everyday life, and its only real limitation is the
imagination and perseverance of the subject applying the self hypnosis
Before one begins the technique, one must decide on the desired results.
An understanding of the challenge at the conscious
level provides a greater understanding at the unconscious level.
This free self hypnosis technique as
its title suggests consists of four steps.
Step 1) Auto Relaxation – to induce hypnotic self-relaxation.
a) Select a location free of distractions and
interruptions. Some people find soft music helpful. If music is selected,
I personally suggest something in the area of 60 beats per second such
as baroque, because of its calming effect on the system which slows
b) Lie down, wearing comfortable non-obstructive clothing, maybe none
at all. With time one may prefer to sit or stand because some might
tend to fall asleep which is still all right.
c) Take three deep breaths, breathing deeply and slowly. With my clients
I suggest that they lightly touch a point at the back top center of
their head where the hair starts to circle. After touching this point
and relaxing their arm at their side, they are to fix their concentration
on this point, and notice the feeling of where their finger just touched.
This provides a kinesthetic internal association.
d) Close your eyes. With this step I further suggest that the subjects
turn their eyes up to the 10, 11 o’clock position as they concentrate
on the sensation at the back, top, center of their head, and as they
breathe deeply … and slowly … taking each breath into the
depths of their belly … begin to notice … how gently …
the tension leaves their bodies … as they slowly … exhale.
e) Say to yourself:
“I am relaxing all the muscles of my body
… starting from my head to my feet. The muscles of my face and
neck are relaxing … I’m beginning to feel free of all muscle
tension … My arms feel limp and relaxed … The muscles of
my thighs, legs, and feet are relaxed … As I breathe deeply and
slowly, my entire body is completely relaxed. I feel calm and relaxed
f) It is recommended to remind oneself at this
point that relaxation is a state of mind.
g) Tell yourself, “self-relaxation
brings me inestimable health benefits. I devote as much time and effort
as I need to practice the technique of self-relaxation. I am mastering
the art of self-relaxation. Each time I practice, it is easier."
After practicing the self hypnosis technique
above for a week or two, it is time to accelerate the relaxation, with
the use of a key word or phrase. I like to also apply kinesthetics to
the words or phrases by touching the thumb to finger(s), while repeating
the word(s) or phrase(s). This has the effect of developing a trigger,
also know as an anchor
to help you get there quickly later.
From this point on, once one is able to relax they are able to apply
repetitive suggestions to their unconscious minds,
to accomplish pretty well anything possible.
Step 2) Autosuggestion
Human beings operate on the basis of suggestion.
Everything we know has come from suggestions.
Self hypnosis works on the theory of suggestibility,
and just as we have external influences we could have internal influences.
Who better to influence us, than our own desired thoughts? The voluntary
acceptance of a suggestion is essential to successful self
hypnosis, and persistent practice increases one’s receptivity.
To help one increase their
ability to accept suggestion, it is recommended that the subject
apply a suggestibility test before the next step in your self
hypnosis routine. This is a test used to determine if one has reached
the required state of mind desired to accept suggestion. The goal is
to eliminate one’s critical thinking factor, thereby allowing
suggestion to be effectively accepted and applied.
Caprio's text provides
three suggestibility tests one can practice.
a) The eye-closure test. -
The test suggests that the subject pick a spot up on the wall and try
to close the eyes within a count from ten to one. It is my belief that
if the subject tries he has provided room for failure.
I prefer to use Dave Elman’s technique of having the
eyes closed and trying to open them, suggesting a failure at the opening
of the eyes.
b) The swallowing test. -
This test can be applied in place of or immediately after test a). The
subject is to suggest to themselves that they will have the desire to
swallow some time during the process of counting from one to ten. When
applying this test, the subject is to wait until he swallows without
c) The hand-tingling test. -
This test is applied in the same format as the suggestions in tests
a) and b).
It must be remembered to remove any suggestion not desired to be kept
and to have it return to normal, otherwise the suggestion could continue
Step 3) – Autoanalysis
This comes under the category of self-analysis.
After the self-relaxation and eye closure technique, you are ready to
solve your specific problem(s). One is to question oneself with simple,
straight-forward questions, due to the fact that the subconscious takes
matters quite literally. A person can regress as far back as required,
and do some analysis. As Caprio states “self-knowledge is the
key to successful self discipline”.
Step 4) Autotherapy
This step consists of conditioning your mind to
positive thinking and a positive plan of action through the use of post
Self-therapy is based on the principle of “I can – I must
– I will – achieve my goal – that I have the mind-power
to accept and carry out certain self given suggestions that will enable
me to overcome almost any handicap, to improve my personality, and acquire
a healthier philosophy of life.”

trancework when desired.
Now as promised up above
here is my specialized and complete weight loss hypnosis program
for your convenience.
and cigarette cessation seem to have been at the forefront
of hypnotherapy for years now, and so to begin we shall start
with a few important tips.
1: Devote the initial session
of self hypnosis to making a definite decision about your weight
challenge. Note: There must never be any doubt in your mind that you
can lose weight.
2: The best way to start is to schedule a complete physical examination
by your physician.
3: Explore your reasons for wanting to reduce weight.
4: Establish your motivation for wanting to lose weight.
5: Analyze your eating habits.
6: Determine the reason you overeat, or indulge in the wrong foods,
including nibbling between meals.
7: To diet successfully, educate yourself about food. (I hate that word
8: Plan what you will eat daily. Weigh yourself daily keeping weekly
9: Repeat daily that you are becoming your ideal weight, that you have
now developed new eating habits, sensible ones, and that you are no
longer susceptible to temptation, “and that you and your mind
are in command at all times”.
Now for my own Personalized
"weight loss", and maintenance program.
I began a training cycle in the early eighties approximately 18 years
ago. I practiced body building and then took up the martial arts, primarily
Muay Thai. I have analyzed, applied, studied the effects of, adjusted,
and combined many different eating, and exercise habits to learn their
short and long-term effects.
I would first like to point out that “diets” do not work.
The word “diet” suggests losing something. When we lose
something our own inner child sets out to re-find it, and that child
is usually quite successful. The other reason diets don’t work,
especially “crash diets”, is that our bodies shut down (they
crash), and will store what little food is provided during, and after
the diet has ended. This in turn causes one to regain and generally
double up on the weight initially lost, kind of a self-preservation/survival
mechanism controlled by the subconscious.
It is imperative to understand a few concepts about losing weight in
order to keep the fat where it belongs, “on creatures that require
it, to survive out in the jungle”.
The program I implement on myself and those that desire to replace excess
fat with lean, healthy, strong self-respecting frames incorporates a
proper mind set, exercise and healthy eating habits.
1) It is assumed that the subject has the desire to lose weight and
get healthier. Here the subject states clearly, positively to themselves
what they want, and they decide that they will achieve it with persistence.
So use one of the self hypnosis routines above to drive this point home
and into your unconscious mind.
2) Determine where you are now. This is done with a visit to your physician,
explaining to him your desired goal, and asking if there are any suggestions
due to your own possible health implications.
Taking a full length picture of oneself at present should also be done
as a push mechanism from where you are, and to have a comparison later.
There are two major items of importance with health. One is whether
you like the way you look in the mirror and second, how you feel. Are
you energetic enough to do what you wish, and do you feel strong enough?
3) Establish your motivation for the results desired, and how you will
know when you have achieved the set goal. What will you see, how you
will feel, and what might you hear once the goal is reached.
4) Begin an exercise program. Depending on the person’s present
point of health, this could begin with simple brisk walks or swimming,
to heavy weight training and or long distance running.
The important point to the exercise program is to strengthen and increase
muscle content and or density. Tests have shown that a muscular body
burns more calories while asleep than a fat body in movement. And burning
calories is a major factor in reducing fat.
The exercises should encompass the entire body for overall muscle development
due to the fact that there is no such thing as “spot reduction”,
except possibly with hypnotic techniques.
The fastest way to grow and strengthen muscle is with slow, controlled
repetitions. Studies have found that a count of one to ten on a contraction,
and then a count of five to one on the release provide the best results.
This also reduces the need and ability to do excessive repetitions,
preventing the possibility of pulling something or causing some form
of repetitive musculo-skeletal disorder. The program should be implemented
every second day.
5) Adjustment of eating habits. First split your meals up into smaller
portions to a frequency of five times a day.
One major factor in fat loss or storage is insulin. Insulin is produced
by the pancreas, and its functions are to drive fat and sugar through
your bloodstream and into the fat storage cells. It is also the most
powerful profat hormone and the primary promoter of “fat preservation”.
Large meals cause the production of large doses of insulin to be dumped
into the system promoting fat storage. Small mini-meals cause small
production of insulin promoting easy digestion, and faster burning of
6) Super-hydration of ice water. This consists of sipping a gallon of
ice water throughout the day. The principle is based on a few factors.
a) Water flushes the system.
b) Promotes digestion, and
c) Has zero calories.
d) Ice water has the effect of causing the body to constantly work,
to reheat the body. Work means a transfer of energy to heat, causing
the constant burning of calories. In effect, one is putting into the
body a substance of zero calories (water) and causing the burning of
calories approximately 8 calories per glass of ice water. Nice formula:
zero calories in = 8 calories out.
e) As the body ages, it dries out. Dehydration causes headaches, eye
irritation, back pains, and body numbness. Water combats all this and
helps promote healthy, young looking skin, and improves overall health.
7) Education. Set a little time aside each week to learn about nutrition
from foods and vitamins.
8) Rest. The body and mind need rest. Too much work on the body (exercise)
causes muscle atrophy and undeserved stress on the system. Adequate
sleep is necessary for muscle recuperation and subconscious mind processing
to evaluate and work on things.
9) Repeat daily that you are achieving your desired weight and form.
Think positively, and in your self-induced hypnotic state provide positive
In summary of all that has been stated, when dealing with obesity, a
patient’s desired results are often difficult to achieve, but
these needs are best met with the use of hypnotherapeutic measures due
to the ability of reorganizing one’s thought patterns as elaborated
The uses of self hypnosis allow a person to reorganize old
thinking patterns, as well as develop strong motivational factors. Triggers
that have at one time directed a person towards food can be altered
towards healthier measures of fulfilling the need desired, for weight
It has been my experience that the successful treatment of obesity with
hypnosis works wonderfully for short-term gains, but long term
maintenance requires periodic re-evaluation along with new learnings,
and a willingness upon the patient to practice the use of self hypnosis
to maintain strong motivational goals in order to continue achieving
or maintaining one’s desired results of weight loss,
