Self-Hypnosis A Tool In Curbing Bad Habits And Lessening Pain

Self-Hypnosis Bad Habits

One of the best techniques for anything from fighting off addictions to is self-hypnosis. This form of hypnosis that allows the person to take the responsibility for the procedure. For some people, this is preferable as some not comfortable being under the control of another. With self-hypnosis, control is in the individual’s hands.

Self-improvement is one of the most common problems for which self-hypnosis is used. People who want to improve their social skills or manage their anger better can utilize self-hypnosis. Medical professionals also use this procedure to lessen physical symptoms. Self-hypnosis can fool the brain and make it believe that there is no more pain.

Critics of the procedure, however, have argued that the change in behavior and well-being is only temporary. It is there only as long as self-hypnosis is effective. But it only masks the problem.

Still, fans of this procedure have attested to its effectiveness. It is especially good for getting rid of bad habits and chronic body pain. Besides, they argue, these people have learned these bad habits. And self-hypnosis will make unlearning it easier and faster. If you are not comfortable with a professional controlling you, then have a professional do it.

To get started with self-hypnosis, you will need a professional hypnotist to guide you. They will help you with the instructions and the procedure. The procedure is different for every person. Some people will find it easier to manage while other will find it hard. After all, they will be depending on the subconscious. And this requires strength of mind.

Self-hypnosis, however, may not be as effective. But the peace of mind and independence can mean a lot. This knowledge can make up for the limitations of self-hypnosis. The progress, for instance, may not be as fast. But slow but sure can be better than working with a bad hypnotist.

There is no need to worry about safety. Just because you are doing it does not mean that it is any less safe. There is no truth to the claims that self-hypnosis can open the mind for the devil to enter or that people can get crazy because of it. A person under self-hypnotic state will have the same safeguards as with ordinary life. Actually, there is not much difference. The difference lies in the segment of the person’s personality that he or she wishes to change.

All in all self-hypnosis is an effective tool in curbing bad habits and lessening pain but the jury is still out on whether it can go mainstream.

The Downside of Self-Hypnosis

The Downside of Self-Hypnosis

One downside of self-hypnosis is the fact that amateurs practice it. The patient will probably know nothing about hypnosis except that that it can solve his problem. Although the hypnotist will be there to guide him, the amateur will still be the one to handle everything. And, when you think about it, will any sane person let an amateur gain access to their minds?

This is why one of the things people ask about self-hypnosis is, is it safe? According to experts, it is as safe as any hypnosis procedure. Because at least you can be sure you’re not dealing with someone who there to con you.

Slow progress is another disadvantage of self-hypnosis. Still, success depends on whether or not people are receptive to the task. Some people are more suggestible than others.

Self-hypnosis is a new procedure that is taking the country by storm. Despite being relatively new, there is a lot of buzz around self-hypnosis. This is because it is different from what people expect from hypnosis, which is a lot of control.

Although the same control exists in self-hypnosis, that control will largely come from the patients themselves. There is no more hypnotist involved that can manipulate you into doing things that you don’t want to do and not know that you are doing at all. This time the control and the power to change will be all in your hands. The procedure actually answers two of the things that critics question about hypnosis itself.

The first one is the idea that a person other than yourself is controlling you and is entering your mind. Mind control is something that people still fear about until now. With self-hypnosis, there will be no hypnotist. Although they will be there to teach you the basics and guide you through the procedure as well as check on your progress, all the hypnosis will be in your hands. You will have control of your own mind, which is how things should be even in real life.

The next thing is the fact that you are not some kind of patsy that will just sit around and let things happen to you through the hypnotist. Now there is an effort coming from the patient itself. Change is no longer something done to you. Now you can do it yourself. A lot of the critics of hypnosis in the first place comes from the fact that people are not actively involved in the process. They are only recipients of the cure instead of being the problem solvers themselves.

This is especially true when it is used to curb a bad habit or get over an addiction. When attempting to change, a person should work hard at it otherwise, it will not be a change that comes from something internal. As they say easy come, easy go. Self-hypnosis however changes this fact as the patients themselves are active problem solvers being the hypnotist themselves.

One downside of self-hypnosis is the fact that it is done by an amateur— the patient who will probably know nothing about hypnosis except that fact that it can somehow solve his problem. Although the hypnotist will be there to guide you, an amateur will still be the one to handle everything and when you really think about it, will any sane person let an amateur get hold of their minds even if those persons are themselves? This is why one of the things that are often asked about self-hypnosis is its safety. According to experts, it is as safe as any hypnosis procedure, maybe even safer because at least this way, you can be sure that you are dealing with someone who is not there to con you.

Another disadvantage of self-hypnosis is the slow progress. Still, responses of people will also depend on whether they are receptive to the task or not. There are people who are more suggestible than other people and those who are not so suggestible will surely find it hard to find change.
