Product Description

Product Description

Hypnosis is a proven technique that allows people to reprogram their subconscious to change unwanted behaviors. Most books on self-hypnosis require the reader to memorize or record scripts, then put the book aside while they do their hypnosis work. But Instant Self-Hypnosis is the only self-hypnosis book that allows you to hypnotize yourself as you read, with your eyes wide open, without putting down the book.

The author's fail-proof method allows you to put yourself into a hypnotic state and then use that state to improve your life in myriad ways. And because the hypnotic state is induced while you read, you remain aware of your surroundings and can bring yourself back to normal consciousness slowly and gently, using the instructions provided.


The only self-hypnosis book that allows you to hypnotize yourself as you read You don't have to memorize or record any text, and you don't have to put the book down to concentrate No memorizing required, no recording needed, nor do you even have to put the book down to concentrate. The author's failproof method allows you to put yourself into a hypnotic state and then use that state to improve your life in myriad ways. Includes 35 hypnotic solutions to combat: fear of flying fear of public speaking inability to quit smoking inability to diet allergies chronic shyness, and more

5.0 out of 5 stars 35 useful scripts for self hypnosis 11 Feb 2008
This book is essentially a script book for self-hypnosis. At the beginning of the book is a general induction you can use to induce yourself into a trance state, followed by a selection of 35 scripts for dealing with common issues and helping you to improve your life. You'll find scipts for weight-loss, confidence, motivation, public speaking, lucid dreaming, better sex life and many others.

The book is marketed as using hypnosis while you're awake. This may seem to make it different from other hypnosis books, unless you understand that you are using hypnosis every time you use your imagination and get absorbed by your inner experience - and for that matter any time you read any book that transports you into another world, the world described in that book and you become oblivious to your environment to a certain degree, you are in hypnosis - much like you are in hypnosis when you are absorbed in the action of the movie you are watching on TV. The only difference is that with TV you get to watch the images, and while reading the book, you create them in your mind, according to your interpretation of the words.

You can use the scripts in this book either by reading them, but you can also record them on a tape and just relax and listen to them. You should use whatever method helps you to engage your imagination better and create a more vivid subjective experience.

This book was created for non-hypnotists - however even a professional hypnotist, particularly those who are new to hypnosis, may use this book as an additional resource - just as they would use any other script (patter) book.

Near the end of the book is a section on hypnotizing yourself while you write.

5.0 out of 5 stars gets you into action 17 Feb 2011
Full marks as unlike many other books it is written in such a way that you find yourself doing it. As knowledge on a subject does not necessary make a difference with regards to changing your ways of doing, thinking, feeling according to your intentions, the author presents his method in such a way that I found myself in "action impacts the drift"-mode. So I use the information and, oh, least I forget, it's fun to do. Plus: stays with you without having to read and study it all over again if you fancy picking up methodology any time later after not having used it. Try it, be suprised how you suprise yourself. Easy going with good impact!

4.0 out of 5 stars Does not seem to work for me. 7 Mar 2012
By S. J. Hughes VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Although I found this an easy and enjoyable book to read, I find that it does not seem to work for me. I can get to a very relaxed state, but I can do this with normal meditation techniques, I just cant seem to get the suggestion bit to work. I had several goals in mind prior to reading this (and other books like it) one being to focus and concentrate on work issues, the other was to attempt to improve my gym workouts by running etc. I have often found that whilst running if I can get the right picture in my head then I can run all day, so surly if I get this sorted up front my workout should improve all round. Unfortunately the techniques in the book did not seem to hold. May be it's just me, but I had a feeling of disappointment after several weeks of seemingly getting nowhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant book 16 April 2012
By L. Power TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Kindle Edition
If you are like me, you probably have had many preconceptions about hypnosis. In reality, we all access this state of consciousness frequently, for example, at a scary movie if you find yourself squirming in your seat while watching the movie you are probably in this state.

As you read this book, you realise that hypnosis really is the ability to use the power of your imagination, while minimising the interference of your conscious mind, to effect permanent and positive benefits in your mind and body, and to break free of those behaviors that do not serve you.

You are learning the skill of communicating with yourself on a deeper level.

This book is organised in a very easy to use manner. There are scripts for 35 different situations ranging from stress to procrastination, better sex, smoking, problem solving etc.

For example, if you were to use the rapid healing script, you read the induction which involves you going down in an elevator, and gradually feeling more and more relaxed till you get to the bottom, then if you wish you may use the deepening script to get into an even deeper state. Then you read out loud the script itself. I noticed that a cut I had, started healing much faster after I read this script. Then, as you practice it more and more, it gets easier to do and you can really feel the effects.

When I read the induction out loud, it worked very well. Then as I used the deepening script I went into the deepest state I believe I have ever consciously experienced. Amazing. There really is amazing power to this technique.

Naturally, you do need to practice this for a while before the changes become permanent.
