Hypnosis is a very popular practice, and you should know first and foremost that there is nothing dangerous about. This is probably the biggest misconception that people have about hypnosis, is they think that it is dangerous and that if they are hypnotized they are going to start clucking like a chicken, when this is really not the case at all.
Self hypnosis is just the same, with the only difference being that with self hypnosis you are going to be performing the hypnosis yourself.
How to do it
There are actually just a few easy steps that are involved here and then you will be able to perform free self hypnosis. Just make sure that you are going to take this seriously otherwise you are not going to be able to get the maximum results with your self-hypnosis that you could.
So to get started just as you would if you were going to meditate, you are going to need to set the mood. It is just not going to be as easy to relax and put your mind at ease if you are sitting in a brightly lit room or you are around noise or other diversions. So the best way to set the mood is going to be for you to dim the lights, be in a quiet room where you get to be alone, and you can even light some candles or put on soothing music.
Don't put on any music with lyrics because then even if you trying not to focus on it, you are going to start listening to the words of the song and so you want to have music that has no lyrics.
Self hypnosis is a great thing that you can try and now you are going to want to start focusing on your breathing and start to relax yourself. You need to remember that you cannot try and make anything happen because it is not going to work that way. Self hypnosis can be used for a number of different purposes, so you are going to want to learn how to do this if it is something that you are interested in or which you think could be useful to you.
However if you find that you are not able to do it yourself but you do want to get hypnotized for whatever reason, then you should just get a hypnotist who is a professional and who is going to be able to do this for you.
