Learn How to Do Self Hypnosis Right Away!

Learning how to do self hypnosis for stress relief, or any other issue, is simple. At the end of the day, no one can put ideas in your head but you!

How to Do Self Hypnosis:
2 Steps

1 - You start by putting yourself into a relaxed state.

2 - You tell yourself (aloud or in your head) the relaxing messages that are helpful to you.

You can place yourself in a relaxed state in various ways, such as progressive muscle relaxation and diaphragmatic breathing.

Here is a really simple self-hypnosis technique for you to try today!

  • 1. Before getting started, reduce distractions. Turn off the TV, phone, etc.

  • 2. Sit or lie down in a comfortable position.

  • 3. Close your eyes.

  • 4. Take a deep breath in.

  • 5. Exhale slowly and say "25" in your head.

  • 6. Take another deep breath in.

  • 7. Exhale slowly and say "24" in your head.

  • 8. Continue this breathing pattern as you count backward from 25 to 0.

  • 9. When you reach 0, tell yourself a calming message.


  • "I feel a wave of relaxation go through my body. I feel relaxed from my head to my toes. I am in control of my relaxation and can call upon it at any time."

Repeat this message (or mantra) a couple of times.

  • 10. Take a deep breath in.

  • 11. Exhale slowly and say "0" in your head.

  • 12. Take another deep breath in.

  • 13. Exhale slowly and say "1" in your head.

  • 14. Continue this breathing pattern as you count from 0 to 25.

The process for how to do self-hypnosis is all about programming your mind with positive messages. As with any thought process that gets deeply ingrained in the brain, it doesn't happen with a one-shot deal, although you will feel a difference after trying this once. Practice makes perfect! Practice self-hypnosis for 30 days, and you'll definitely experience a difference.

I've always been a daydream believer!  We all drift off into another world at times. Self-hypnosis is just like day dreaming: your concentration is fixed. You easily block out your surroundings and are able to relax and focus your attention on other things.

How to Do Self Hypnosis at the Your Next Dentist Appointment

Just the thought of going to the dentist makes me cringe! I have very sensitive teeth. So, inevitable during cleaning, the hygienist always get "that spot" that almost sends me into orbit.

This may sound silly, but this is how I use self-hypnosis to calm my nerves: I focus on Old McDonald

You remember that nursery rhyme, don't you? It's the song that could potentially continue all day long.

So, here's what I do.

I sit back in the dentist's chair and close my eyes.

I start by taking some deep breaths, simply focusing on the rise and fall of my chest.

Then I start signing the song in my head.

I try to picture the farm in my mind.

As I sing the song, I try to sing about as many animals as I can.

You can dig pretty deeply here.

I usually start off with the traditional farm animals: pigs, cows, horses, sheep, chickens, etc.

Then, I let my imagination run wild.

I'll think of a totally different group of animals and sign about as many as I can think of.

For instance, I'll think of arctic animals: penguins, seals, wolves, etc.

Entrench yourself in the daydream. That is how to do self hypnosis!

I can't say that I love going to the dentist, but self-hypnosis definitely helps!

It sure beats just sitting in the dentist's chair focusing solely on the impending pain. Think about that for a moment. If you're gearing yourself up for a bad dentist visit that's uncomfortable, isn't that a form of self-hypnosis, as well?

We can use the power of the mind to feel better starting today.

     Your attempt may fail but never fail to make an attempt!

As my friend was passing the elephants, he suddenly stopped, confused by the fact that these huge creatures were being held by only a small rope tied to their front leg. No chains, no cages. It was obvious that the elephants could, at anytime, break away from the ropes they were tied to but for some reason, they did not. My friend saw a trainer nearby and asked why these beautiful, magnificent animals just stood there and made no attempt to get away.

“Well,” he said, “when they are very young and much smaller we use the same size rope to tie them and, at that age, it’s enough to hold them. As they grow up, they are conditioned to believe they cannot break away. They believe the rope can still hold them, so they never try to break free.” My friend was amazed. These animals could at any time break free from their bonds but because they believed they couldn’t, they were stuck right where they were.

Like the elephants, how many of us go through life hanging onto a belief that we cannot do something, simply because we failed at it once before?

How many of us are being held back by old, outdated beliefs that no longer serve us? How many of us have avoided trying something new because of a limiting belief? Worse, how many of us are being held back by someone else’s limiting beliefs?

Whatever you can conceive and believe, you can achieve!
CHOOSE not to accept the false boundaries and limitations created by the past.
