Creating a personalized self-hypnosis script can be a very effective way to enter into a deep state of relaxation and connect with your subconscious to deal with an issue that you are facing. Self-hypnosis scripts help you relax, clear your mind, and focus on being in a calm hypnotic state that is self-controlled and self-guided. Many people choose to create personalized self-hypnosis scripts because they do not trust others to influence the fragile and easily suggestible subconscious mind. Self-hypnosis scripts allow you to be in complete control of your hypnosis session.
To create a personalized self-hypnosis script, first decide what issue you would like to address with the hypnosis script. Common issues that self-hypnosis can help with include self-confidence, insomnia, weight loss, quitting smoking, relaxation, and anxiety. Have a clear idea of the goal of your self-hypnosis and work from that to create an ideal self-hypnosis script for yourself.
A self-hypnosis script can either be memorized or recorded for playback during a hypnosis session. If you are memorizing your hypnosis script, keep it short and simple so that you will have no problem memorizing the commands and positive affirmations. If you are recording the hypnosis script for playback, the script can be a little more in depth because you will not need to memorize the commands and positive affirmations. Begin by creating a situation in your personalized self-hypnosis script that paints a picture of complete relaxation for you. This visualization will differ greatly from person to person, as each person has a different sense and preference for what relaxes him or her. Maybe your visualization will be waves at the beach, or maybe it will be a simple, white room. Make this visualization something that is not only comfortable and relaxing for you, but also personal and realistic.
Work towards the goal of your self-hypnosis by visualizing yourself in an ideal state and incorporating this ideal state into your hypnosis script. If you want to lose weight, visualize yourself as a thinner and healthier individual in your relaxation scenario you are creating. If you want to rid yourself of anxiety, visualize yourself as carefree and relaxed, floating effortlessly through life without any worries. Keep these visualizations consistent throughout the hypnosis script.
The next, and most important, part of your personalized self-hypnosis script will be the commands and positive affirmations. Be direct, yet pleasurable and positive, when writing your commands and positive affirmations. These should also be written in the present tense. Give yourself credit for the good things in your life and encouragement to achieve more. If you want to stop smoking, use commands and positive affirmations such as “I am not going to smoke today” and “I am going to be a healthier and happier person now that I am free of my smoking addiction.” Imagine yourself carrying out these commands and the happiness that results from achieving your goals. Keep the commands and positive affirmations short and relevant. You should repeat each command and positive affirmation as many times as you need for it to really resonate in your subconscious mind.
After the positive affirmations and commands, you will want to bring yourself out of your hypnotic state of relaxation by reaffirming the positive and gently regaining complete consciousness and awareness of your surroundings. Coming out of a hypnotic state should be a slow and deliberate process that involves common techniques for awaking from hypnosis. Some common methods are to re-enter the initial visualization of relaxation and change the visualization slightly to wake up. For example, if the original visualization was a relaxing beach, to wake, imagine yourself walking away from the water.
