With hypnosis becoming a very popular method for dealing with a wide range of problems and issues, hypnosis CDs are now available for you to practice self-hypnosis in the comfort of your own home. Many people are uncomfortable being hypnotized in person or by someone they don’t know. Hypnosis CDs remove a lot of this discomfort, while also allowing you to practice self-hypnosis on more consistent basis.
Listening to your hypnosis CDs in a proper way will help you get the most benefits from the CDs and the best results possible. The first step is to find a hypnosis CD that deals with a topic you are interested in and will help to improve your life in some way. Hypnosis CDs are available for a variety of topics including self-confidence, insomnia, relaxation, weight loss, smoking cessation, anxiety and more.
To get the most out of the CD, you’ll want to choose an area to listen to the CD that makes you the most comfortable and relaxed. This could be your favorite chair, or on your bed. You’ll want to make sure that you will not be disturbed while listening to your hypnosis CD, so turn off all electronic devices that could unexpectedly go off and make noise. If you are listening to a hypnosis CD on a CD player or computer, you’ll also want to shut the door to the room that you are in, or reduce ambient noise as much as possible. Some people also prefer to listen to their hypnosis CD on headphones so that they are completely undistracted.
When listening to a hypnosis CD, you’ll want to fully concentrate on the hypnotherapist’s voice and the words that he or she is saying from the very beginning of the hypnosis CD. Often, the beginning of the CD will be a brief introduction to what the CD will cover and how you will benefit from the hypnosis session. The next thing you will hear will most likely be a hypnotic induction. The hypnotherapist will guide you into a deep state of relaxation that will help you become very calm and subdued. This state is important for hypnosis because it allows the mind to relax and let go of all other stressors and thoughts. The hypnosis CD will guide you into this state, and then move on to the main session.
During the main session of a hypnosis CD, the hypnotherapist will give a series of direct commands and suggestions for the problem or issue that you are dealing with. The main session will also include mental exercises in visualization and imagery to really help your mind connect with your subconscious. To get the most benefit out of your hypnosis CD, be open and willing to listen to and accept the commands and suggestions that are given. If you are resistant to the commands and suggestions, they will not have the same positive impact on your life as they would if you were very receptive.
The hypnosis CD will guide you through a complete hypnosis session, but your mind may wander from the session at times and think of other things. This is completely normal, so don’t be alarmed or start the session over again if this happens. A hypnosis session is designed to allow your mind to think about your entire life and events and issues that have happened or will happen. This will help you realize that everything is connected in your life, and help you to form strong and positive mental skills for dealing with any issue.
A hypnosis CD should be listened to no more than once a day. Listening to the hypnosis CD too often will actually decrease its effectiveness because you will become too used to the suggestions, commands and imagery used. The hypnosis CD will not challenge you if you listen to it too often. It is normally recommended that you listen to a hypnosis CD every day around the same time of day, or a couple times a week. It’s really up to personal preference how often you listen to the hypnosis CD once you have seen the initial benefits. Also, it’s important to never listen to a hypnosis CD when you are driving or doing any other activity that requires your attention, such as cooking or watching children.
