Self-Hypnosis: How to Program Your Subconscious

Self-Hypnosis: How to Program Your Subconscious
Is it Mind Control?
Are you ready to ditch some of your bad habits, but can’t get yourself to do it? Self-hypnosis can help you reprogram your behaviours with just a few relaxing minutes a day. 

It sounds intriguing, but can it work? Unfortunately, when we think of hypnosis, a lot of people associate it with a magician’s trick or mind control. 

It often means that we are under the suggestion of another person’s choosing rather than being in control. This is not the case, however, when you use this self-hypnosis technique.
You are in complete awareness and control of your intentions. Although it may seem mysterious, it is a very useful practice that can help you achieve your goals. 

In fact, you experience this trance-like state in different ways. When you are listening intently to music, lost in a project or zone out on movie night, you are slipping down to the level of the subconscious. You can influence it!

Think of it as a very relaxed place where time and space fade away with the worries of day-to-day life. The possibilities are endless, and you have the power to access your inner wisdom and strength through this practice. 

The subconscious mind does not operate under the same limits and negative beliefs as the conscious mind, and it is responsible for our unconscious actions. You can train it to help you achieve your goals and banish bad habits. 

To program your subconscious mind, you need to be in a relaxed, receptive state. You must let go of negative thoughts and physical stress, allowing your body and mind to believe in the power of this technique. 

It takes very little time and no special skills or knowledge, just a few quiet minutes each day and a positive, clear intention. Never underestimate the power of your subjective mind to create a new reality for you. 

Set up Your Space 


Before you begin, you must be clear about what you want to achieve. Use positive words that focus on what you want, rather than what you don’t. 

Write your intention on a piece of paper, so you can stay focused on it. Once you have a clear intention, prepare your meditation space. 

Find a quiet place where you can spend a few minutes alone. Straighten up the area and turn off all distractions. You can light a candle or incense if you like. 

Settle Your Mind and Body 


Sit comfortably in a chair with your back straight and feet on the floor. You may rest your hands on your thighs or cradle them one on top of the other, whichever you prefer. 

Let your eyes look ahead with a relaxed gaze. Take a few deep breaths. Try to breathe evenly and mindfully, tracking the breath in and out of the body. 

Do this for a few minutes and let yourself settle into relaxation. When thoughts or worries arise, try not to let them distract you.

Rather than letting them run crazy, intend to let them go and return your focus to the breath. Starting with your feet and working your way up the body, relax each body part, letting stress and tension melt away. 

Be thankful to each body part and the job it does for you every day. Go slowly and deliberately. 

Program Your Intention 


Once you have relaxed and are in a deeply receptive state, state your intention. For instance, if you want to lose weight, your intention may be something like, “I will make healthy food and exercise choices.” 

Keep your intentions focused on the positive rather than the negative, as you do not want to give power to what you do not want. Be clear and realistic, and break down larger goals into smaller steps, if possible. 

Visualise yourself going through the steps needed to accomplish your goal and imagine what it would be like to achieve it. Really feel it with every aspect of your being, knowing that it will come true. 

Finish your intention with confidence, believing that you will realise your intention. Have faith that your subconscious mind will help you achieve your dreams and be thankful for what you are about to receive. 

Start Today


You will need to set aside 15 to 20 minutes each day for this practice. It may seem like a long time at first, but you find that it goes quickly and can easily fit into your schedule. 

Once you see results, you will be hooked. You may find that an ideal time for your practice is right before you go to bed. When you set your intentions and then drift off into sleep, you are much more receptive to the power of your intentions. 

When you access the subconscious mind through self-hypnosis, you will feel less stress and anxiety, and less influenced by negativity. This keeps you from self-sabotaging thoughts, allowing you to reach your goals more quickly. 

There are many guided meditations available online that can help you with this process. Listening to recordings can be an easy and powerful way to access the unlimited influence of the subconscious mind. 

This easy technique can help you manage health conditions like chronic pain, help you lose weight, or quit a bad habit. The power of your subconscious mind is available to you, so why not take advantage?
