Hypnosis is a field that can be misrepresented and passed off as fluff or even quackery. Often the term hypnosis conjures up the thought of a comedian hypnotist enthralling his audience by making random audience members do all sorts of crazy stunts.
It leaves you wondering whether it is at all possible or whether it was just a sham.
But hypnosis has another side to it. It is a powerful tool for self development that has the ability to impress new thought patterns on your subconscious mind in a very beneficial way.
This isn't something you have to do on the couch in the room of an expensive therapist. With downloadable mp3 audios from sites such as HypnosisDownloads.com you have easy and relatively cheap access to a very powerful method to improve your life.
How Self Hypnosis Works
The mind has a much bigger influence over the direction of your life than you realize. Your thoughts are the ultimate driver of your actions and your life.
The way you perceive yourself and the world around you has a huge influence over how you experience life. There are objective realities "out there" that you cannot change, but much of your reality or perception of reality is driven from a subjective viewpoint within the mind.
If your subconscious perceptions are creating outcomes that you don't like then you have the ability to reprogram the subconscious mind to create outcomes that you do like.
The subconscious is always open to suggestions regarding how it could operate differently. If you want to change a pattern of behavior, then you need to change a pattern of thought. If you need to change a pattern of thought then you need to make a new impression on your subconscious.
In this way change can actually be quite easy. You don't have to expend huge effort trying to consciously change things. You just make the right impression on your subconscious mind and let it do the work for you.
This is where self hypnosis comes in. The hypnosis mp3 will take you through a guided relaxation process to calm the body and the mind. In this state your conscious mind will switch off allowing the subconscious mind the be accessed. Then the hypnosis will deliver an affirming message to your subconscious mind, essentially giving it some new programming instructions regarding a particular issue you want changed.
There are a few self hypnosis sites online, however I recommend HypnosisDownloads.com
They have an excellent range of downloads on a wide variety of subjects from insecurity to relationship help to health to building confidence and self esteem.
They are available in individual downloads or in money saving 2, 5 or 10 download packs. The 10 step courses contain several related downloads which offer a comprehensive solution to a particular issues. For example 10 Steps to Overcoming Insecurity in Relationships, which has been a big hit with Badass Young Men readers.
I've purchased and listened to several downloads on a variety of issues and as long as I show commitment and listen to them regularly I have always noticed a beneficial change.
The customer service is second to none and Mark, Roger and Kirstin do an excellent job.
