Why You Should Use Hypnosis for Self Improvement
On your self-improvement journey, there are many different tools and techniques that can and should use to help you achieve the goals you set for yourself. However, not every tool and technique is a good fit for everybody.
I have already covered many of these tools and techniques on the blog.
But should you use hypnosis for self improvement?
From my experience, it is a form of guided visualization that helps reach your subconscious mind faster than using normal visualization techniques which primarily involve your conscious mind. So yes, I have found it beneficial.
As I am no expert on the matter I refer you to this informative article instead and invite you to take advantage of the free course.

Reassuring Reasons why Hypnosis is your Friend
Believe the hype or think for yourself
For too long hypnosis has had a bad or ‘difficult’ press. If a person doesn’t understand something they have 3 options open to them.
1) They might be skeptical and therefore save the trouble of looking further and possibly benefiting.
2) They may conclude it is dangerous and to be avoided at all costs.
3) They may spend time discovering the truth behind the hype.
If you don’t know much about a topic it’s easy to be suspicious. Some people assume hypnosis is akin to a carnival sideshow, others consider it mystic mumbo jumbo or ‘mind control.’ For those who look beyond the hype, the truth is far more illuminating.
The most powerful tool you possess
There are potentially huge benefits for those who use hypnosis as part of everyday life. When you understand hypnosis you start to see its potential to improve human performance in the physical, emotional, and intellectual realms. For me, rumor, gossip, and suspicion weren’t good enough.
I determined to learn all I could about hypnosis – I learned every fact and practiced every technique under the sun. I took several training courses – some good, some terrible. I invested thousands of hours of devoted study to hypnosis and discovered just what is possible. I hypnotized friends, neighbors, and work colleagues. Hypnosis greatly changed things for me on a personal level.
How hypnosis helped me
I used to be shy. Thanks to hypnosis I can now talk to thousands at a time and can approach anybody calmly and confidently.
I used to have poor concentration and procrastinate; thanks to hypnosis I can instantly motivate myself.
I used to find physical workouts and exercise exhausting but because of hypnosis, I am now in the best shape of my life.
Incidentally, I also stopped myself blushing with hypnosis. Now if ever I have a difficult call or conversation coming up, something I may naturally feel reluctant to do (you know the kind of thing) I spontaneously self hypnotize and rehearse the upcoming situation feeling good, with myself remaining calm. In this way, I habitually set my own emotional ‘blueprints’ for upcoming situations. Having said that it’s natural that some people have concerns or half-digested “hand me down” ideas regarding hypnosis. A common one is the one about ‘mind control.’ However, what does this really mean?
Why you are more in control of yourself in hypnosis
If someone expresses concerns about being ‘controlled’ in hypnosis what they mean is they don’t want to be like a robot, an automaton that is forced to obey every whim of the hypnotist. We can’t help but influence others but we don’t control them. To understand why you need to understand hypnosis better.
So what is hypnosis like?
Hypnosis isn’t like a coma. It’s not unconsciousness – more a subtle shifting of consciousness. In hypnosis, you can still think logically but you also have access to the ‘software’ of your mind so that you can update instinctive emotional and physical responses. In fact, the hypnotized subject (not the hypnotist) calls the shots. When I hypnotize someone I need to go at their speed and respond to their needs and expectations. Hypnosis will give you more control in your own life because of what it enables you to do.
How can I be so sure?
Because over the decades I’ve seen all kinds of people, all ages and from all backgrounds turn their lives around thanks to hypnosis. When you use hypnosis for yourself it improves confidence in all kinds of ways. When you use it to change other’s lives it just blows you away. This is what I mean.
When I first hypnotized someone to feel no sensation in a painful arthritic arm it was an incredible feeling. When I first cured lifelong phobias quickly and comfortably I was astounded. When I stopped hardened alcoholics from drinking and even got a heroin addict off the stuff and back into mainstream life again I started to feel angry that people could just associate hypnosis with entertainment.
With the aid of hypnosis, I (and many people I have trained and worked with) have helped severely depressed people feel strong and positive again. The rewards and satisfactions are hard to describe. I’m going to take a stand against ignorance and short-sightedness around hypnosis and here’s why.
Why you need to reclaim hypnosis for yourself
Hypnosis is your birthright. It’s nature’s optimum learning tool. In fact, to learn and perform anything well you need to experience a natural focus of attention, a natural kind of hypnosis. To be successful hypnosis needs to be your companion and friend.
Successful people use it naturally all the time because hypnosis is natural. It’s the way we learn new responses. Unlike medications its side effects are purely positive – one expectant mother I worked with to feel relaxed during childbirth later reported that she was also more relaxed when flying!
Hypnosis is easy to learn and everybody can benefit.
Hypnosis is a safe environment to ‘try out’ new behaviors and emotional patterns before you experience them for real. So the young man can ask a woman out for a date many times in calm relaxed hypnosis so that by the time he does it for real it feels real and natural and relaxed. Sportspeople who use hypnosis learn new quicker and more accurately. So hypnosis gives you more control of yourself and your life, it’s natural and gives you instant benefits and it’s a way of ‘trying on’ and establishing new patterns of emotional response and behavior, Hypnosis enables you to develop yourself as a human being.
