Self hypnosis audio downloads are a bit of a mystery to most people who are searching for helpful solutions to problems in their lives.
For those who have heard of self hypnosis# techniques, they may think that when they go to a hypnotist, he or she is going to have them close their eyes, snap their fingers and cure them of their issues.
And for 98% of the population, most believe that it is the hypnotist that causes the client to go in to hypnosis and not realize that it's actually the opposite.
What I mean by that is... all hypnosis is self hypnosis.
You allow yourself to enter into the state of hypnosis. The hypnotist simple guides you there with certain hypnotic words, phrases and stories that helps your conscious mind go to "sleep".
And this "sleep" is exactly what you experience every night when you go to bed.
During our 24 hour day cycle, we go through four stages of consciousness, Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta.
I will go into more detail about consciousness states in a future article, but for now, just remember that Beta is wide awake, Alpha is relaxed, Theta is deeply relaxed (meditative) and Delta is deep sleep.
All of these states are hypnotic states to certain degrees with Beta being the least hypnotic, Delta be the deepest and Alpha and Theta being the most effective states that get the best self hypnosis results.
SIDENOTE: I'm sure many hypnotherapists will debate this explanation, but I digress, lol.
Regardless, everytime you go to "sleep", you are constantly shifting thru at least 3 to 4 states of hypnosis consciousness which is why self hypnosis audio downloads work so well and I'll explain that in a minute, but first...
You have 3 minds, your conscious mind, your subconscious mind and finally, your super-conscious mind which we're not going to get into here.
We're just going to focus on the first two for now.
The conscious and subconscious.
Your subconscious mind runs all the programs that keep you breathing, keep your blood pumping, keep your heart beating and so much more.
Your conscious mind on the other hand is the "decision" mind... or at least it likes to think so, lol.
So think of these two minds like this...
Your subconscious mind is like a computer. It creates programs from memories and experiences and then stores those programs so thoughts, feelings, decisions and actions are readily available and become automatic for you.
Your conscious mind is like the person at the keyboard of the computer. It makes the decisions about what makes sense and what actions to take around those decisions.
UNFORTUNATELY, this is where the problems start!
If your subconscious has stored "bad" programs, your conscious mind will make decisions and take actions based on those bad programs no matter what good intentions you may try to have.
For instance, imagine your driving around and your hungry.
Consciously, your trying to lose weight and you know you should go home and eat healthy food BUT your subconscious mind has been programmed to believe that fast food is a quick and convenient solution to hunger. And what happens?
Somehow, you find yourself pulling into MickeyD's and ordering a 1500 calorie meal instead of going home and making a salad.
So, what does this have to do with how self hypnosis audio downloads work?
You see, since you spend at least six to eight hours everyday in hypnosis ("sleep"), why not use that time to remove those bad programs and replace them with self hypnosis programs that serve you?
When you "Sleep", your conscious mind shuts off, tunes out or takes a break. Your subconsious mind on the other hand is always "on" and is wide open to accept suggestions for transformation.
For example, with a weight loss hypnosis audio program, the program might have suggestions to replace old ideas of "eat anything when hungry" to "I only eat healthy food always".
To release stress with self hypnosis, the audio download might replace subconscious thoughts of "what if" to "I now remain relaxed and present".
So whatever self hypnosis audio download program you use, the suggestions for transformation will make new thought/synaptic connections within your brain and you will be literally rewiring yourself to create new thoughts which lead to new decisions which lead to new actions, which lead to new results.
And the easiest part is, you'll do it all in your "sleep"!

Using hypnosis for self improvement is a great tool for goal setting and personal development. Most people are surprised at how easy it is to learn self-hypnosis. And self-hypnosis, in turn, makes a lot of things much easier for you to learn as well.
Self improvement using hypnosis is usually thought of as a person listening to a digital audio program, mp3, or other type of personal developemnt media, which helps the listener to relax and open up to receive suggestions centered around a specific topic such as increasing your income, dating confidence, weight loss, stop smoking, etc.
Audio hypnosis programs are a great way for you to start experiencing hypnosis and improving your life to become better since you simply listen to them either while you sleep or when you relax
How do you incorporate hypnosis into your self improvement practice?
To be successful with self improvement hypnosis programs, there are certain aspects that should be addressed.
The best hypnosis program you could use for self improvement would be one you create yourself because your would be able to address the exact deeply personal issues that may be sabotaging your personal development.
Unlike general topic audio hypnosis programs, this hypnosis session would be made for the exact personal issue you want to address, including the precise words and phrases that mean the most to you so a "perfect" self hypnosis progam would have to be crafted by the person using it to suit his or her own needs.
This would entail buying recording software, a microphone, learning basic audio enginering and then writing out and recording each hypnosis program script.... And THAT'S A LOT OF WORK!
With that being said, you still can easily use the DIY method (Do It Yourself) because everytime you relax, you go into a hypnotic trance state.
Below is a quick process for using hypnosis for self improvement.
1. Write down in a positive statement ONE GOAL you want to achieve.
EXAMPLE - "I wake up everyday at 6am refreshed, energized and excited to start my day"
2. Find a quiet place to sit and be alone so you can relax without interruption AND TURN OFF ALL DEVICES (phone, computer, tv, radio, etc)
3. Make sure you are sitting NOT lying down (you may fall asleep). Take 3 deep breaths in thru nose and exhale thru your mouth. On the 3rd exhalation, close your eyes.
4. Begin repeating your statement. EXAMPLE - "I wake up everyday at 6am refreshed, energized and excited to start my day". See yourself doing it, feeling it, touching it, smelling it, hearing it.
5. Continue imagining actually expereincing what you want for at least 3-5 minutes. Then take 3 deep breaths in thru your nose and out thru your mouth while smiling and feeling proud of honoring yourself with this incredible gift of using hypnosis for self improvement.
Finally, make a promise to yourself to put this proctice into your daily life and schedule it daily. By doing this, it will become and automatic habit for you.

To become a confident speaker requires some conscious effort, but it’s well worth the time as most people respond well to confident individuals.
Even if what is being said is not totally interesting or accurate, a confident person is usually able to capture and hold the attention of the audience long enough to make a point.
Speak Effectively, Speak Confidently
The following are some tips on how to speak effectively and confidently:
• Practice regularly by picking up conversations with anyone at any time. This will help the individual build up a good base, and thus be able to gauge by the session, the effectiveness of his or her contribution to the conversation.
• Knowing a little about the interest and mental capacity of the listening audience will help the individual gear the conversation topics to ensure their interests and attention span are effectively captured. This is a very important rule to follow, as confident people usually only indulge in topics that they feel will lock in the attention of the listener.
• Using simple words and sentences will be the normal choice for the individual who is confident as they would not want to bore the listener with language skills that are not appreciated. Keeping the information spoken in short and point form sentences will also further display the skills of the confident speaker.
• Being mentally prepared is also another important trait of a person who is able to speak confidently. Armed with the relevant information, the speaker is able to make a confident
delivery style that will be evident in both the content of the material being presented and in the demeanor in which is comes across.
• Volume is something that is often overlooked but is no less important when the individual is intending to present information. The vocal volume used should be loud and clear as this will definitely hold the attention of the audience.

Have you ever heard of the term - “The 2 Percenters” ?
This comes from the belief that most of the world's wealth is controlled by 2% of the population. This means that the other 98% of the world's population have poverty, lower class or middle class incomes.
While I question those exact numbers, I think you would agree that the proportion of wealthy people to poor, low and middle class people is pretty close to this ratio.
Open your mind and consider this concept. If you are not wealthy, it's because you have been hypnotized to believe either you can't be or you shouldn't be.
It is my mission to help you shift those beliefs and help you make more money in 2017 and manifest more wealth into your life.
You see, if you believe you were born to suffer a fate of poverty or only to aspire to have an “average life” at best, then you have a poverty mindset that will keep you stuck in a life of poverty or at best, reach an “average” lifestyle.
But if you believe that you are the master of your own destiny, that your in total control of your wealth and that you deserve wealth, then your wealthy mindset will focus you on attracting abundance into your life.
Adopting the mindsets of wealth is the key that unlocks the door of success.
In most cases, rich minded people will tell you that there is no secret to becoming wealthy. The knowledge has always been in plain sight.
It is your attitude about money that will facilitate the flow of wealth.
The belief that we live in abundance is the psychological aspect of a wealthy mindset.
“I always knew I was going to be rich. I don't think I ever doubted it for a minute.” ― Warren Buffett
Since the dawn of capitalistic society, there has always been wealthy people and poor people. Poverty will always exist and because you can't have “rich” if there is no “poor”. This paradigm will never change.
Another paradigm is this.
Rich minded people will always be in a state of abundance and poor minded people will always experience lack.. This too will never change.
To help us understand the “why”, we must understand the mentality of rich minded people and compare it with the way poor minded people think and act.
In my book , "Rich Mind, poor mind", there are ten distinct differences in the money mentality of rich versus poor money mindsets.
While studying the differences, notice your own thoughts and reactions and see where you need to shift from poor minded beliefs to rich minded beliefs.
Keep in mind, that by defining ‘rich’ and ‘poor’ I am not referring to an individual’s current bank account size, net worth, assets, and so on.
I am referring to your beliefs about money, your beliefs about lack and abundance and your beliefs about yourself.
Your mind stores your beliefs like a computer.
Your beliefs are so powerful, they'll lead you to create amazing opportunities for yourself, or build walls that imprison you from ever achieving the success you desire.
Even if you win the lottery you probably will lose it all sooner or later if your mind has been conditioned to believe you'll always be poor.
On the other hand, if you have a positive, abundance mindset and a “rich mind” self image, you will be driven to create abundance in your life no matter what “tough economy” the news would have you believe we live in.
You see my friend, abundance is an illusion and wealth is a figment of your imagination.
Whatever current financial situation you find yourself in... from the career you have, the house you live in, the car you drive and the vacations you may or may not get to take.... you have created it all with your thought beliefs.
No outside influences forced you into the situation your in.
No-one put a gun to your head and made you stay where your at. Your here because of your mindset.
Your life is what it is because of the decisions you've made based on the beliefs you have about wealth and abundance.
And more importantly , it's because of your beliefs about what you truly deserve to experience in your life.
As my Dad always said, “It's all in your head”
