10 Minute Self Hypnosis Technique

Step 1: Get into position

Make yourself comfortable.
Sit with your hands and legs uncrossed and your head supported.
Gently close your eyes.

Step 2: Ratio breathing [2 minutes]

Take a deep breath in.

The aim is to breathe in for a shorter amount of time than you breathe out.

This method is known as the 3-5 ratio breathing exercise as you breathe in for 3 seconds and breathe out for 5 seconds.

You should breathe in the same volume of air as you breathe out, the only difference is the time it takes to breathe a given volume of air in and out.

As you inhale – slowly count 1, 2, 3
As you exhale – slowly count 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

Repeat 10 more times.

Step 3: Deep relaxation [3 minutes]

As you breathe gently, say the following statements to yourself.
After you say each statement, imagine those muscles becoming soft and deeply relaxed.

“All the muscles of my head and neck are soft and deeply relaxed”


“All the muscles of my shoulders, chest and arms are soft and deeply relaxed”


“All the muscles of my stomach and back are soft and deeply relaxed”


“All the muscles of my waist and bottom are soft and deeply relaxed”


“All the muscles of my legs and feet are soft and deeply relaxed”

Don’t worry if you don’t say the words exactly as they are written. It is the intention that is important not the words.

Step 4: Imagination [2 minutes]

Use your imagination to be in your favourite happy place.

As you start to deeply imagine your happy place, perhaps you might be able to:

  • see your happy place or
  • hear your happy place or
  • smell your happy place or
  • touch or feel your happy place.

Focus your attention on any one part of your happy place.
Hold your attention there for two minutes.

Step 5: Positive autosuggestion [3 minutes]

Here are a couple of ways to offer your unconscious mind positive suggestions.

The first method is to say the simple autosuggestion developed by French Psychologist Emile Coue:

Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better

Repeat this sentence for three minutes, contemplating on these words and what they mean to you as you say them. 

The second method is to say any positive suggestions that can help you achieve your goal.
For example:

“I am confident and relaxed when I talk in public.”


“I only desire and eat healthy and nutritious food.”


“I will exercise for 30 minutes every day.”


“I will achieve my ideal weight of _____ stone”

Practice makes perfect

Some people like to listen to relaxing music while they do self-hypnosis.
One of my favourites is the Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams.
