1. Choose the right hypnosis audio recording for your goal
When selecting a hypnosis audio recording, it is important to make sure it is tailored to your specific goal. You can look at it in 2 ways.
1- What are you trying to achieve in that moment? Has it been a crazy day, so you're looking for relaxation? Are you looking for motivation? Positive energy? Choose an audio that best fits what your goal for the moment is.
2- What goal are you working towards? Are you looking to loose weight? Are you desensitizing your anxiety? Stop a habit? Make sure to select an audio that is suited for the goal of your work.
For example, if you want to lose weight, you would probably not benefit from an audio that focuses on improving public speaking skills. Similarly, if you are trying to overcome a fear of heights, a recording that focuses on memory recall may not be the best choice. By choosing an audio that is tailored to your specific goal, you will be able to get the most out of it.
2. Make sure you're in a comfortable position before starting the recording
Before you get started with your hypnosis audio recordings, it's important that you make sure you're in a comfortable position before beginning. Find somewhere peaceful and quiet; switch off any distracting devices like televisions or cell phones; use a comfortable chair or bed; and relax your body so it’s easy to focus on the recording itself.
HOT TIP: Don't listen to your audio recordings in bed, unless it's a recording for sleep. Many people think listening to their recording in bed is their best option since our bed is usually our most comfortable spot. However, your subconscious mind is so conditioned to associate the bed with sleep, that it is almost a guarantee that you will fall asleep while listening. If you fall asleep, the recording will no longer be effective. So choose any other comfortable location, other than your bed!
Taking the time to do this may sound like it takes extra effort, but its importance to have success with your audio recordings can't be overstated. Make sure you're ready for a great session!
3. Close your eyes and focus on your breathing
Incorporating hypnosis audio into your daily routine is a great way to reduce stress and practice relaxation. To get the most out of your experience, start by taking a few moments to intentionally close your eyes and focus on your breathing – this simple step helps ensure an environment free of distractions and allows you to become more mindful. With this mindful attention, let yourself immerse in the moment, feeling any sensations that come up in your body and focusing intently on what you hear. Allowing this type of focused attention allows for deeper connection with the words, allowing them sink deep within you and help make positive changes as desired.
4. Listen to the recording all the way through without interruption
Listening to your hypnosis recording all the way through without interruption is one of the best ways to get the maximum benefits out of it. The script is professionally written and designed in an intentional way to achieve the goal of the recording. Skipping over parts or not allowing yourself to get fully immersed in the experience could mean that you don't get the intended benefits of listening to it. So make sure you take your time, listen all the way through and give yourself a few moments after it's finished as well to really let the suggestions made to sink in.
HOT TIP: Actually LISTEN. If your mind starts to wander, redirect it to the sound of my voice In the recording. If the recording is playing, but you're mind is off wondering what to make for dinner, the recording won't be effective.
5. After the recording is finished, sit for a few moments and reflect on what you heard
After you've completed your hypnosis audio recording, take a few moments to reflect on what was said. Focus on any affirmations or positive messages you received during the session, as these are likely to be beneficial - and don't forget to acknowledge yourself for taking the time to practice self-care! You may find it helpful to spend a few moments writing down your reflections in a journal, so that you can track and measure any changes in your thoughts or behavior over time. In the end, reflecting after the recording is complete can help maximize the benefits of hypnosis and give you an opportunity to focus on how far you have come.
6. Take action on any suggestions made in the recording
Taking action on suggestions made in self-hypnosis audio recordings can be an important part of getting the maximum benefit out of them. Listening to the recordings and understanding how to incorporate all their positive suggestions into your life can be key to making a difference; you cannot simply play the recording, close your eyes, and expect change to happen by itself. Half of the work happens in hypnosis, but the other half happens when we reinforce new thoughts, behaviors, and actions in the conscious world. Following up with meaningful action can really increase the likelihood of achieving the desired goals, so when suggestions are made in any given release, make sure you take them seriously - incorporating them into your daily life where you believe they would be effective.
7. Repeat the process as often as necessary until you achieve your desired results
Repeat the process of listening to your hypnosis audio recordings as often as necessary and you will soon find yourself on the path to achieving your desired results. We all take in information differently so while some may find success in just one listen, for others it may take multiple attempts to reap the full benefits of hypnosis. Whatever works best for you is the right approach!
It's important to remember that hypnosis works best when the suggested messages are reinforced over and over again. The repetition helps the images, feelings, and thoughts experienced in hypnosis to become 'knowns' to the subconscious mind, ultimately leading to lasting change in behavior or thought patterns. This is why it is so important to listen to your hypnosis audio recordings regularly and take action on any suggestions made. With consistency and dedication, you can achieve the results that you desire and bring success that much quicker.
Hypnosis recordings are an incredible way to reinforce the changes you want and can help make lasting changes to your life. By utilizing the tips above and taking consistent action, you can ensure that you get the most out of your hypnosis experience and maximize its potential to bring about positive change in your life.
