In more ways than one, hypnosis is actually an effective way to unwind and cope with life’s daily stressors.
Since time immemorial, self-hypnosis has been easily achieved through meditation time and again not only by seers, but also ordinary people…who have wished to rise above their ‘ordinariness’.
To a beginner, the idea of suppressing the conscious mind to eliminate stress and worries, ignore painful sensation or simply let the mind go blank as the body heals, can be the hardest thing to achieve.
But given time and effort, this can be easily performed over and over again by himself.
Meditative trance can be done in more ways than one.
Have a meditation CD handy as you look for a comfortable spot. Your room may sound the best option but it can easily induce you to sleep. Turn on your meditation CD and listen to soothing music.
Sit and relax. Do not lie down or you might induce your body to sleep. Use breathing exercises to relax your senses.
Visualize through the 3-step process. From the ‘awake level’, move to ‘sleep level’ and then, finally to ‘deep sleep level’. Feel the music ‘envelope’ your senses. Let your heartbeat match the rhythm. When it feels like being in a much larger place and totally relaxed with your mind not being ‘barged in’ with conflicting thoughts, possibly you have reached meditative trance state.
You can get out of your trance state by moving toes and fingers. But do it very slowly.
Through this, you can easily find ways to program your mind to achieve what it really wants to do.
