23 Self-Hypnosis Step 1 - Pre-Sleep Technique When you go to bed, starting tonight, and for the next 7 days, just before you are ready to fall asleep - give yourself the following suggestions 10 times:“Every day, in every respect,I get better and better”While your saying the suggestion, imagine yourself in any way you can, getting better and better.In order not to fall asleep and not to lose count, every time you say the suggestion press down with each finger of your right hand. Then, continue with each finger of your left hand until you’ve completed the suggestion 10 times.This may be your first attempt at learning to effectively program yourself through suggestion. It is of utmost importance to do this exercise every night without falling asleep until you’ve completed the 10 repetitions.You are beginning to establish a habit pattern of properly programming yourself by giving yourself positive suggestions before going to sleep.The next day, you’ll find yourself reacting very positively to that suggestion.

Here’s how:1. Sit in a comfortable chair with your back supported. Focusing your attention – effortlessly - on a spot opposite you, slightly above eye level.2. Take 3 deep breaths - slowly. As you inhale your third breath, hold it for 3 full seconds as you count backwards: 3…2… Close your eyes, exhale, RELAX, and allow yourself to go into a deep, sound, hypnotic rest.3. You are to remain in hypnosis 2-3 minutes by counting down slowly from twenty-five (25) to one (1) (NOTE: it will help if you allow yourself to visualize or imagine each number being written on a blackboard or shown on a computer as you count backward.)4. To awaken, just count forward from one to three - and you will awaken refreshed and alert, ready to go about your business in an energetic way.5. Do this exercise twice a day for 7 days, after which you will be ready to give yourself beneficial suggestions.

It is useful to ask about specific feelings concerning the behavioral excesses and deficits revealed. when exploring effective responses, tap cognitive information and elicit imagery.What makes you sad?What makes you cry?What makes you fearful? and the opposite.When would the event not upset you.Sensations (Physical symptoms related to my behavior?)Develop all senses to appreciate and enjoy visual stimuli, auditory responses, olfactory and gustatory delights as well as tactile pleasures.Which sounds are pleasant and which are unpleasant?What sights appeal to you and what visual scenes do you dislike?What are your special tastes – likes and dislikes – in food?What physical signs, if any, do you have as a result of your behavior?Imagery (How do I image myself related to my behavior?)During assessment ask client to close eyes and image themselves doing the behaviors they have indicated. Then ask:Where are you?Who is with you and what are they doing?Cognition (What are my thoughts related to my behavior?)The intention in assessing cognition is to underscore the value of the three specific lead-ins – shoulds, perfectionism, and external circumstances. Educate clients to eliminate shoulds and replace them with personal preferences. Effective therapy enables people to emerge with a full acceptance of their basic fallibilities and to use the therapeutic insights to correct misconceptions related to the widespread myth that they are victims of circumstance.cog·ni·tion (kg-nshn) n.The mental process of knowing, including aspects such as awareness, perception, reasoning, and judgment.That which comes to be known, as through perception, reasoning, or intuition; knowledge.

50 Three Factors of Influence Letting goFocused SuggestionsReinforcement
51 FacilitationThe acceptance of one suggestion always leads to the acceptance of another.
52 GradingSuggestions are accepted more readily if they are graded from low to high difficulty.Easy suggestions come before hard ones.As you develop suggestion skills, increase the difficulty a little at a time.
53 ExpectancyIf you believe in the positive result, you are in a state of expectancy.It may be a firm belief or a vague feeling that this thing will happen.Your expectancy that the suggestion will work plays a major role in goal achievement.
54 Step 3 - Programmed Suggestion 1. The third step in self- hypnosis is started one week after you complete the exercises for Step 2. Once you start Step 3, you no longer have to do Step 2.2. For Step 3, you need a 3x5 card or a business card, which you can easily carry with you at all times. You are to write the suggestion you’ve prepared for yourself, which meets the criteria of being Positive, Simple, Believable, Measurable – and it should carry a Reward. Always state your suggestion in the present tense.3. Again, sit down and choose a spot opposite you, slightly above eye level. Hold the card in front of the spot and read the suggestion to yourself three times.Make sure the words on the card are believable to you and allow yourself to imagine accomplishing what is written on the card. Use your imagination.
55 Step 3 - Programmed Suggestion 4. You’ve written your suggestion on a card – chosen your spot – read the suggestion to yourself three times – now, drop the card and take your first deep breath. Exhale. Take your second deep breath. Exhale. Now take your third deep breath – hold it – close your eyes – count backward from 3 to 1. Exhale, and go deep into hypnosis.5. At this point, instead of counting backward from 25 to 1, allow the suggestion to repeat over and over in your subconscious mind. At the same time, imagine that you are carrying out your suggestion.You’ll find that at times the words start to break up and become fragmented. That’s perfectly okay. The important words or phrases will come through to you.In approximately 2- 3 minutes you’ll have a feeling it’s time to stop and wake up. (Note: this time was set when you established a habit pattern in Step 2.) At this point, just count forward: 1…2…3… open your eyes and go about your business, feeling refreshed and relaxed in every way.
