You may be wondering how online hypnosis works and whether it is the right choice for you. It's not always possible to get to a hypnotist and get the alternative treatment you need or want, whether you want to give up smoking, lose weight or you want help in managing your anxiety, irritable bowel syndrome or even a sleep disorder.
The first step to ensuring you get the most of your online hypnosis experience is to get yourself comfortable. Choose a place where you feel most relaxed, this can be your bedroom, next to the pool or on a nature trail you like to visit. Everyone has their own space where they feel safe and at ease, this is the place to choose to ensure you can completely relax your body and mind to achieve the best results.
Choose a quiet area away from the noise of the television or the traffic, a place that oozes peace and tranquility and doesn't leave you being disturbed by noise every few minutes. Next you need to ensure that you are not disturbed. Tell the family, turn your phone onto silent and leave your home landlines off the hook for an hour, ensuring that you can go the full time without any unwelcome distractions which can lead you off track.
Identify your goals and what you want to achieve from online hypnosis. This is something you should identify with a qualified hypnotist to ensure you get the right online training to assist you in achieving your goals. With your goals in mind and a place chosen where you feel comfortable, safe and tranquil you are ready to start your online hypnosis experience.
Start by closing your eyes and working on clearing your mind of any fear or anxiety. Many people find themselves worried at this point as they don't believe that they will be able to get out of the "trance." The truth is that this is a completely safe practice and you can remove yourself from the situation at any time you feel uncomfortable.
As your mind clears and you start to feel yourself relax, allow your body to relax. Feel as the tension leaves the body from the tip of the head down and out through the toes. You should feel completely relaxed, your body should feel heavy and limp and not tight and uncomfortable. Only once you get to this point are you going to start making headway and having the hypnosis work for you and help you overcome your ailment or improve yourself moving forward.
Now is the time to start focusing on your breathing. Your body is relaxed and you feel at peace and calm, now you want to slow down your breathing. This is also a wonderful relaxation exercise without the hypnosis, just the breathing and relaxation. Breath deeply, focusing on each breath and ensuring that you fill your lungs with air and then expel every ounce before taking another breath.
The final step of the process is to listen to the online hypnosis recording and allow it to offer necessary suggestions. When you are in such a relaxed state, your mind is able to respond better to suggestion and not allow your conscious and very active mind to come into play. It is in this relaxed state where you can start working on your anxiety, improving your sleep, working on your weight loss or even focus on giving up smoking, just to name a few.
