Self-hypnosis is a powerful tool to reprogram the subconscious mind, which stores our fears and emotions. With self-hypnosis, we are taking control of our minds and directing our thoughts more consciously, with intention. It can be therapeutic and really help you to feel better.
We are always hypnotizing ourselves, on a daily basis, with the thoughts and feelings we cling to the most. For many of us with mental health problems, emotional challenges and addictions, our default thoughts and feelings very often are negative. That nagging voice in your head that is critical, judgmental and analytical, that tells you you’re not good enough, or that other people are better than you. It complains. It worries too much. It overthinks. It’s pessimistic. It would rather see the bad than the good. It makes you feel sad and afraid.
The good news is that we can reprogram our subconscious mind, and self-hypnosis is a powerful way to do that.
Start by becoming more conscious of what you think and feel on a daily basis. Try keeping a journal or taking notes. Write regularly, then look back at the recurring themes. Get clear on your thoughts and feelings. Be thorough. What thought patterns and feelings are consuming you, making you feel bad about yourself, holding you back, or taking away from your happiness and inner peace? How do you feel about yourself and your life, and how would you rather feel? For example, if you’re struggling with feelings of insecurity, start looking at those insecurities. Where did they come from? What are you afraid of? What feelings would feel better instead?
Write down positive affirmations that detail the things you want to think, feel, do, have and be in your life. Try writing things like “I am happy and healthy. I am strong, brave, secure and confident. I am at peace. I am financially free. I am grateful. I do what I love for a living.” Get creative and be direct with yourself. Be brave. Reach for the stars. Believe in your power to make your dreams come true. You have the power to be happy, healthy and well.
Read what you’ve written multiple times a day. Keep it in your wallet, or post it on your bathroom mirror, anywhere you’ll read it often. Repeat it out loud to yourself as often as possible. Using a phone app, computer or studio, record your words and if you’d like, include beautiful meditation music behind your voice. Listen to it on repeat while you’re meditating, driving, exercising, or working. If you’re open to it, with time you’ll find that you feel better. You’ll start believing the words and believing in yourself. You’ll be doing the wonderful work of reprogramming your subconscious mind, and soon you’ll be able to feel the changes.
