These guidelines are in place so that you have a safe and comfortable experience with self hypnosis, so please read them carefully. To get maximum benefit from our self hypnosis CDs and MP3 downloads, we recommend you follow three simple steps.
1. Pick a Time and Place
Choose a safe place to listen to your chosen self hypnosis CD or download. Choose somewhere where you can relax without being disturbed for 20-25 minutes. You may prefer to listen whilst lying down in bed or whilst sitting on a comfortable chair. You can listen to our self hypnosis sessions at any time of day, but only when it is safe, private, comfortable and convenient for you. NEVER listen to our hypnotherapy recordings when your attention is required elsewhere, such as when driving or operating any kind of machinery.
2. Listen, Relax, and Enjoy
Make sure you are in a position to relax deeply. We recommend listening to the recordings with headphones, because they help to cut out distractions and they also help you to focus better on the words of the hypnotherapist. It is important to be open-minded and for a greater chance of success, allow yourself to feel positive responses to the suggestions you hear. You will benefit most by tapping into feelings of positivity when you listen. It is simple — just relax, let go and enjoy the process!
3. Repeated Listening
For self hypnosis to work effectively, you need a high level of commitment. For our single-session self-hypnosis audio programs, we recommend that you listen every day for the first week, then every other day for the following three weeks, for maximum positive benefit. Then just listen to from time to time when you feel the need, or if at any time, you wish to benefit from complete hypnotic relaxation. The timeframe for change is different for everyone, so it is important to listen to the recordings regularly.
Safety Notice – Important Information
Our recordings are designed to help you positively benefit from the natural and open-minded state of hypnosis. Although hypnotherapy is known to be a highly effective and consistent therapy, the contents of our recordings should always be regarded as being COMPLEMENTARY.
- Our recordings should NOT and do NOT replace conventional medical treatment.
- If you are using medication, then DO NOT alter the medication in any way, unless instructed to do so by your medical professional.
- Where physical illness or symptoms are concerned, you MUST always consult with a practitioner of conventional medicine, before listening to our recordings.
- If you are in any doubt over a physical or emotional problem, then you should always seek advice from a doctor, or an appropriate medical professional.
- DO NOT listen to any of our recordings if you suffer from epilepsy or a serious psychiatric condition, such as schizophrenia.
Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, but these warnings are necessary, as your health and well-being is of paramount importance to us. The warnings that refer to physical illness and symptoms are important, because there is always the potential that hypnosis could mask the symptoms of a more serious illness. There are certain physical conditions, which can either create or trigger symptoms for seemingly unrelated issues. These include problems with the thyroid gland, blood disorders, brain tumours, and even heart problems. If such an illness then progresses, without whatever orthodox medical assistance was or is needed, it is possible that a very serious situation could ensue. This is why it is vital that you seek medical consultation before using our self hypnosis recordings.
Our final warning refers to people who should not be induced into a state of hypnosis. This includes those who are deemed to be psychotically ill. Treatment of such an illnesses is highly specialized and beyond the scope of our recordings. Epilepsy is another condition that is deemed unsuitable. A hypnotherapist could actually work with twenty epilepsy sufferers and nothing would happen, but the twenty-first might be triggered into a convulsion, because some epileptic conditions may be triggered by a change in brain activity.
Please be aware that hypnosis and hypnotherapy cannot actually create a harmful situation for an individual unless a potentially harmful situation already exists. But always remember, that hypnotherapy is a COMPLEMENTARY therapy, not an alternative therapy.
WARNING: Do NOT listen to any of our self hypnosis CDs or downloads whilst driving or operating machinery. Do NOT listen when your attention is required elsewhere. Always make sure you are in a safe and comfortable place.
