You can use self hypnosis to remove negative beliefs and create new ones and you can also use self hypnosis to achieve goals!So, if self hypnosis is so powerful how come some people don’t get results from it?Well the simple answer is that they aren’t using self hypnosis correctly! In order to get the most from any self hypnosis session you have to know why you are using it. You must have an intention prior to trying self hypnosis or the only thing you will gain from it is deep relaxation. Set a self hypnosis goal!
This self hypnosis goal should be concise and precise. By writing down your statement of intent you solidify the idea of what you want in your mind and give your subconscious mind something to work towards. You create a self hypnosis goal!Ensure you don’t include what you don’t want in any self hypnosis program. Make your self hypnosis goal positive and success-affirming. For example saying something like “I am no longer overweight” or “I no longer have unpaid bills” is not how you should word your self hypnosis goal. When you focus on not being overweight your mind creates a picture of being overweight. When you think of having no unpaid bills you must first think of unpaid bills. This is true of anything in life but it becomes extremely important in self hypnosis!

So, When Does Hypnosis Need the Help of Spirit? There are times when no amount of hypnosis can surmount some problems. That’s when I turn to spiritual practices like prayer. And what a powerful combination prayer and hypnosis can make!Both have a lot in common. When we pray deeply and earnestly we enter into an altered state of consciousness identical to certain levels of trance with self hypnosis. But here’s the difference: with prayer we hope to open up the line of communication with the Divine and invoke assistance — whether for ourselves or for others.
