How Real Self Hypnosis Differs From Listening to Self Hypnosis Audio.

There are many self-hypnosis CDs, some of them just teaching how to relax, and some claiming help and instant fixes in many areas, including lifelong phobias and past life regression.


The relaxing, general wellbeing hypnosis CDs may be very beneficial, and if you enjoy them, keep enjoying.  However, if listening to them becomes a chore and is boring, perhaps you should listen to some nice music because you will relax more when you enjoy what you hear.


Sometimes, listening to a hypnotic CD may be dangerous. You need to know the limitations of self-hypnosis before you start listening to the self-hypnosis CD, especially the more sophisticated ones which may put you in a deep trance. If you are in a trauma, if you are experiencing strong depression or anxiety, and especially if you have any form of psychosis, a deep trance may be dangerous and can create strong distress.

 

When you listen to a self-hypnosis CD, you simply relax and let someone else's voice lead you. In most cases you just listen to someone's suggestions, and, yes, you learn to relax, and sometimes it even helps you deal with the particular issue it promises to help. There are many sophisticated self-hypnosis recordings that can put you deep into a trance – you can experience a great ride on the top of the wave – but it is not self-hypnosis, you are riding in somebody else’s boat, you are given somebody else’s solutions.

 

The essential difference between real self-hypnosis and listening to a hypnosis CD is the active role which you take in real self-hypnosis. You enter the hypnotic state by yourself; you use it your own way, accessing your own unique resources the way it best works for you. The experience is very empowering itself, boosts self-confidence and enlightens. Real self-hypnosis simply works and it is very powerful because you know yourself best, you can create the powerful suggestions, you will use your own words which work for you, or you can even skip the words and just use your imagination – you can feel the suggestions instead of saying them.


Real, active self-hypnosis is the most empowering self-help method available. Every self-help method is based on self-hypnosis; every self-help method teaches how to use the power of the mind or uses suggestion to achieve goals; every self-healing method is based on self-hypnosis. When using real self-hypnosis, you can learn to access every aspect of your mind, you can use your mind to connect with your body and to heal it, you can access the troubling emotions and fears and clear them, and you can access the spiritual parts of your mind and expand your awareness.
