Have you ever wanted to learn self hypnosis but didn’t know how or thought it was too complicated?
My 10-minute self hypnosis exercise is quick and easy to learn.
You can carry out my 10-minute self hypnosis exercise almost anywhere*.
If you do it regularly, you will become more relaxed and develop a more balanced perspective.
The best part of my self hypnosis exercise is it will help you achieve your goals and create the happiness you desire.
Step 1: Get in position
Make yourself comfortable, either sitting or lying down, 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.
As you inhale – slowly count backward – 3, 2, 1
As you exhale – slowly count backward – 5, 4, 3, 2, 1
Repeat 3 more times.
Step 3: Deep relaxation [3 minutes]
Continue breathing slowly and normally.
Slowly 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 suggestion [3 minutes]
Say to yourself any positive suggestions that can help you achieve your goal.
“I am confident and relaxed when I talk in public.”
“I only want to eat healthy and nutritious food.”
“I exercise for 30 minutes every day.”
“I can achieve my ideal weight of _____ stone”
Repeat 10 times.
Step 6: Finish
Slowing count up from 1 to 10.
Open your eyes and say to yourself three times:
“I am fully alert and completely out of hypnosis.”
Practice makes perfect
Well done you have now completed your 10-minute self hypnosis exercise!
To achieve maximum results you should complete self hypnosis every day for one month.
The best times are first thing in the morning or last thing at night, but you can do it on the train or bus going to work if you prefer! Some people like to listen to relaxing music while they do self hypnosis. One of my favourites is the Lark Ascending by Vaughan Williams.
I hope you found my 10-minute quick and easy self hypnosis exercise useful and it helps you achieve your goals.
