One way to understand this is to imagine yourself in a rowboat, rowing hard to the middle of a calm lake. Now that you are in the middle of the lake, put the oars down and lie down on your nice soft down filled mattress in the boat. Simply close your eyes, relax, and pay close attention to the sounds around you. There is nothing you have to do. All you have to do is relax and listen to the sounds around you.
When you are being hypnotized, you simply follow the hypnotist’s instructions. The hypnotist will probably ask you to take several deep breaths, to focus on imagining parts of your body relaxing, to imagine yourself melting down, as if all the bones in your body have left you. The hypnotist guides you on this journey with your attention, and your imagination. You relax more and more and focus your attention more and more on the voice of the hypnotist. You start to forget about everything around you, except the voice of the hypnotist.
You turn off your thinking, and turn off your critical, analyzing mind. You simply enjoy the experience and let yourself to accept, to believe that all the hypnotist’s positive words and affirmations are absolutely true. You begin to change your thoughts, feelings and behavior in the direction you wish … nonsmoking, change in eating habits, more exercise, better sleep, maximum performance in sports, and so on. Whatever you do, you will do it better with hypnosis. You learn to gain control over your mind, body and life.
So, in the beginning you are actively participating with the hypnotist, following his instructions to pay attention to his voice, and to relax deeply. After a while, you no longer have to do anything. You simply let go, go with the flow, enjoy the experience, and follow all his instructions effortlessly. While hypnotized, you can begin to believe in yourself, feel higher self-esteem and more confidence. At last, most anything seems possible. You can become your best you and achieve your best for health, happiness, and success.
Going even further in this adventure, you may want to learn self-hypnosis. With self-hypnosis, you can program your own mind with planned, powerful, positive suggestions, instructions, directions, commands, anywhere, anytime, without a hypnotist.
