Self-hypnosis is a tool that any of us can use to resolve problems, help alleviate pain and become more in control of our lives. It?s a rewarding asset to know how to create the self-hypnosis scripts that you can use throughout your life to achieve what you want and make your life better.
There are two types of scripts you can create ? visualization and suggestion. The visualization script helps you to literally visualize in your mind the changes you want to make in your life. You may or may not use suggestions in the visualization script, but you will use your subconscious mind to create images.
The suggestion script consists of suggestive phrases that are written out and that you repeat to yourself until you can visualize the outcome. In self-hypnosis, every script should include the visualization technique, but some people respond best to both suggestive and imagery methods. This works best with the sub-conscious mind that uses both techniques to bring about change.
When you write a self-hypnosis script, there are a few things you should keep in mind to make it as effective as possible. Whether you want a suggestive script or a visualization script, here are a few hints for writing it:
1. Have a plan. Before you begin to put together your script, be sure you have a vivid understanding of what changes you want to make or create in your life. Your subconscious mind needs specifics, and a vague picture of your intentions won?t get the message across. If it?s not clear in your subconscious, it won?t be clear in your self-hypnosis efforts.
2. Know what motivates you. If you simply want to change, but have no motivating factors behind it, you?ll have many obstacles that can dislodge all of your hard self-hypnosis work. The motivation to reach the carrot at the end of the stick must be greater than remaining in your same situation.
3. Know your saboteurs. Your subconscious mind plays an important role in sabotaging your efforts for change. When you?re aware of what these obstacles are that block your success, you can formulate your script to combat them.
4. Create a blueprint. Just as an architect creates a blueprint for a building, so must you create a clear and precise blueprint for reaching success through self-hypnosis efforts. If you want to be lean and healthy, it?s important that you visualize your success by not only writing it down, but having that picture in your mind at all times.
Concentrate on one change at a time. Rather than write a script that includes many life changes you want to make, focus on one thing at a time. For example, if you want to lose weight, write your script with only that visualization or suggestive phrases in mind rather than combining it with studying more to make good grades.
With a little time, effort and practice, you?ll soon be able to write a script in your head that will help you make necessary and positive changes in your life.
