How Self-Hypnosis and Brainwaves May Help You

Hypnosis is a term all of people are aware of but do n0t understand fully. In contrast, there are many people who are not aware that self hypnosis or self-hypnosis (i.e., a self-induced form of hypnosis via self-suggestion or what is termed as “autosuggestion” including conscious autosuggestion and self mastery through hypnosis) is also possible. There is a widely common belief that hypnosis can only be performed on someone by a “Stage Hypnotist”. And often times, this “mistaken” common belief about and the use of hypnosis are to get or induce someone or a group of people to speak out or behave foolishly for stage entertainment purposes. In this article, we will learn more about self hypnosis and explore ways to achieve life enrichment and personal success through brainwave frequency techniques (i.e., utilizing the theta brainwave pathway to the subconscious). Fundamentally speaking, all forms of hypnosis are considered to be within the scope of self hypnosis.  

Firstly, we should understand why self hypnosis is important and how self hypnosis helps with the following situations:

  • In times stress when one is in dire need of complete body relaxation and as a means of stress management.
  • With making healthy lifestyle changes.
  • Chakra attunement and harmony (balance).
  • With pre-existing health issues or as a method of preventative health maintenance.
  • When someone needs to cease any undesirable behavior or habit such as an addiction.
  • Meditation, trance states, creative visualization, and yoga.
  • Spiritual self-hypnosis for communicating with the spiritual realm, for psychic development and mediumship, lucid dreaming, and astral projection (OoBE).
  • Where one needs to achieve his or her goals, ambitions, and lifelong dreams.

The following brief case study exemplifies the benefits and efficacy of self hypnosis techniques:

Jo, a software engineer by profession, is based at Los Angeles. His job was so demanding that he could not give any focus to his personal commitments. This frustrated him a great deal, so he began drinking. As days and time went by, Jo became addicted to drinking alcohol. When he could not get his drink, he then went wild as a result. However, he soon realized that he and his drinking were going overboard and that this destructive behavior had become a major problem in his life. Jo tried many times and ways to quit drinking, but all of this was in vain and for naught. Luckily, sooner rather than later, he then discovered a self-hypnosis brainwave frequency method and realized that it would definitely be worth giving this a try. Minutes after trying this, he began feeling a deep relaxing sensation mentally and physically that he had never knew existed or felt before. Gradually, his brain became so relaxed that he did not need the company or stimulation of alcohol to make him feel better. In the end, Jo excelled very well in his career and is now the lead project manager for a major client. Thus, self hypnosis was indeed a life-changing solution for Jo. 

Secondly, the concept behind this is very simple. Certain frequency waves are received through the ears and then processed by the brain. The brain automatically tunes in to these frequencies and then stabilizes (aligns and balances) itself to the sound of these waves. Keep in mind that there are many kinds of relaxation inducing sounds such as smooth jazz, soft classical music, sounds from nature (e.g., the sound of a gentle rain, the ebb and flow of ocean tides, or a waterfall), sounds of the seasons, mellow drum beats, etc. which can be played in order to help with altering your brainwaves quickly, safely, and effectively. When your brain is in a state of mental focus such as this, there is a high probability that you will be able to achieve your life goals and ambitions quite efficiently and more effectively. Furthermore, through self hypnosis, one’s mind can become fine-tuned to focus only on positive thoughts and the positive aspects of life while eliminating any other negative influencers and/or energies that he or she might encounter; this is a very similar goal and result achieve from daily meditation exercises.

Self hypnosis is a very effective technique which can bring about great results; for instance, many people of late have used this method in order to focus on their career goals and advancement thereof. In addition, this method provides many other benefits, such as—enhanced memory retention; a more relaxed mindset and demeanor; an increase in mental focus, agility, and attention span; and most importantly, an increase in one’s self confidence and personal development.

Your brain produces electrical impulses. These electrical impulses are rhythmic in cycle and produce what are known as brainwaves (or brain waves). Brainwaves are measured in cycles per second or Hertz (Hz). These electrical fluctuations or patterns can be observed, monitored, measured, and recorded by an Electroencephalograph or EEG device. Beat technology aligns your brainwave frequencies to bring about the altered states of consciousness known as Alpha waves, Theta waves, and Delta waves.  

Brainwave Spectrum of Frequencies:  

Beta                12 – 38 Hz 

Alpha              8 – 12 Hz 

Theta              4 – 8 Hz

Delta               0 – 4 Hz

Gamma          40 – 70 Hz

Audio and acoustic sound technology wise, new developments in the high technology recording of Binaural Beats, Monaural Beats, and Isochronic Tones related Brainwave Entrainment (e.g., Brainwave Therapy, NLP, etc.) literature and multimedia software have come a long way and will help with “moulding” the brain for increasing one’s ability to the focus, concentrate, and ultimately enhancing memory retention. These uniquely innovative brainwave entrainment or brainwave synchronization multimedia come in MP3, CD, and (Visualization) DVD formats as well as beat generators and wave players can be found at very reasonable prices.

All in all, any man or woman who goes about engaging and achieving his or her every dream within life is bound to be very highly motivated and self confident. Self hypnosis can effectively change the personality and outlook of a human being while positively altering the way she or he approaches new challenges and experiences as one navigates through the multifaceted currents of life.
