  7. 7. How to Hypnotize yourself to Sleep???Self Hypnosis techniques: • Settle on your back and close your eyes. • Let your arms align naturally at each side without touching across your abdomen. • Begin taking deep breaths, drawn from the diaphragm. • Work your muscles, beginning at the toes. Flex and release while you concentrate on the various, sequential muscle groups, working toward your shoulders and down to your fingers. • Concentrate on relaxing. If your mind starts to wander, identify the thought, put it out of your mind and begin focusing on relaxing. • Begin a countdown and imagine yourself descending gracefully from a high point to a lower one. Set levels, such as 10-9-8, etc. As you reach each level, mentally envision a deeper state of relaxation. • When you reach the count of "one," let your mind drift.
  8. 8. HypnotizeHypnosis techniques can improve sleep disorders. Although some people doubt the effectiveness of hypnosis for sleep disorders, using hypnosis to sleep better has been an accepted practice for many years. Through hypnosis and self hypnosis, people can explore emotional issues that disrupt sleep.What Is Hypnosis?What is hypnosis? When a person uses hypnosis to sleep better, the mind enters a trance-like state that is more open to suggestion. Hypnosis techniques address identified stresses or insomnia triggers during this stage to induce restful sleep.In clinical situations, individuals and therapists agree on what will happen during hypnosis. A therapist may use the hypnotic state to reinforce positive behaviors. Goals of hypnosis for sleep problems include increasing a persons ability to relax and reducing anxiety.Being in a hypnotic state is not the same as being asleep. However, under hypnosis, therapists influence the mind and the body to create better sleep patterns. Using hypnosis to sleep better trains the mind to release the days worries and concentrate on getting a full night of rest.
  9. 9. Additional hypnosis research...Hypnosis is "a special psychological state with certain physiological attributes, resembling sleep only superficially and marked by a functioning of the individual at a level of awareness other than the ordinary conscious state." According to "state theory", it is a mental state, while, according to "non-state theory", it is imaginative role-enactmentWhile under this state of mind, ones focus and concentration is heightened. This individual is able to concentrate intensely on a specific thought or memory, while blocking out all possible sources of distraction. Hypnosis is usually induced by a procedure known as a hypnotic induction, which is commonly composed of a long series of preliminary instructions and suggestions] Hypnotic suggestions may be delivered by a hypnotist in the presence of the subject, or may be self- administered ("self-suggestion" or "autosuggestion"). The use of hypnotism for therapeutic purposes is referred to as "hypnotherapy", while its use as a form of entertainment for an audience is known as "stage hypnosis".The term “hypnosis” comes from the Greek word hypnos which means sleep. The words hypnosis and hypnotism both derive from the term neuro-hypnotism (nervous sleep) coined by the Scottish surgeon James Braid around 1841. Braid based his practice on that developed by Franz Mesmer and his followers ("Mesmerism" or "animal magnetism"), but differed in his theory as to how the procedure worked.
