Clinical Hypnotherapist Steve G. Jones writes in his article Motivate Yourself through Hypnosis about the value of hypnosis: “Ideas, goals, and dreams could be a reality if only you could make yourself do the necessary steps to achieve them. That is how hypnosis works to motivate you to put into action the plans you have been waiting to implement ‘someday.’
“Hypnosis is often misunderstood. Many people believe it can force you to act and react in whatever way the hypnotherapist instructs. Hypnosis cannot make a person into someone different and cannot control a person’s mind. Hypnosis can only draw upon what is within the person.”
In another article – The Language of Self-Hypnosis – Adam Eason warns against using limiting or distorting language: “Avoid using words that are putdowns. They don’t really have a place in self-hypnosis or your mind at all. Avoid the following words and words like them: Untidy, Dirty, Smelly, Ugly, Stupid, Lazy, Hopeless, Disliked, Unkempt, Smelly, Idiot, Embarrass, Ridiculous… Your internal dialogue and self-hypnosis sessions are better without these words.
“Keep aware of and avoid if you feel they limit you.. words that are absolutes. These are words that have no flexibility, that are final. For example: Always, totally, closed, never, finish, impossible, definitely, completely..”
Adam Eason is a UK based consultant [website], speaker and author of The Secrets of Self Hypnosis: Harnessing the Power of Your Unconscious Mind.
