Self-Hypnosis, Meditation, and Contemplation
As a catalyst in making rapid change, self-hypnosis is my tool of choice. For those who are seriously seeking growth, I know of no other more direct path to self-awareness than the altered state of consciousness in which the subconscious and unconscious minds can be accessed.
It is here that a virtual treasure trove of knowledge and emotions can be found and changed in order to affect life on the conscious level. In the hypnotic state, you are open to guidance from very high levels of Self, namely the High Self, Soul/Spirit, and Full Self. From this expanded perspective, new choices and solutions are offered. Stretching to experience phenomena beyond your mind’s normal limits helps to stretch you beyond your conscious belief systems encouraging the possibility of change and growth.
Because you are gaining new perspectives and insights in the altered state, it is important that you remain alert while being totally relaxed. Your full participation in the process is essential. Your personal self-hypnotic suggestions work best when repeated as many times as you are able throughout the day. Your repeated suggestions will guide you to a certain level of understanding and from that new perspective, you can choose a different direction.
The majority of individuals exist in a perpetual unconscious hypnotic trance. That trance constantly suggests to them that they must be on guard and prepared for the worst. Such a steady state of fear demands that they keep their bodies very tight and tense, on alert for their perceived danger. Because of the natural tendency to be tense, it is important that you are deeply relaxed when working with your body sensations and emotions. Every muscle, nerve, and bone should be totally relaxed so that your body sensations can be clearly experienced.
If most of our issues or problems rise from beliefs residing within our consciousness, then we would have the ability to easily change our beliefs and the quality of our lives. Making changes on the unconscious and subconscious levels creates a dramatic shift in conscious reality. By using self-hypnosis to induce an altered state, you can become conscious of your subconscious and unconscious minds and consciously create reality the way you want it to be.
