NYC Hypnotist teaches self-hypnosis and how to design affirmations

Woman meditating at BeachYou can easily use self-hypnosis to help you overcome specific problems, bad habits, fears or limited beliefs that hold you back in life.

You will need two elements for self-hypnosis: a state of receptivity like focus attention or light trance and your specific affirmation. James Braid, who coined a word hypnosis in 1849, would call this process mono-ideaism. A process of focusing on one single idea, making it part of your unconscious belief system. Once this idea is accepted by the mind, it will begin to affect your behavior and actions in a new and positive way.

Clinical hypnotists use hypnotic inductions to help their clients achieve a state of receptivity. You can also establish such state on your own. Meditation, breathing techniques, chanting, listening to calming music or sitting in nature – are all great ways to enter a state of deep relaxation.

Before you enter that state, you have to know your affirmation. How do you design such perfect simple affirmation? If you are trying to eliminate a bad habit, then simply use a suggestion like ” I am now a non-smoker. Smoking doesn’t fit me anymore”, “I let my nails heal, Nail biting doesn’t fit me anymore”, “Drinking is a thing of the past. I choose not to drink.” As you see from these examples, each affirmation consists of two short sentences, making it more sound and powerful. Make sure your affirmations are stated in present tense and have a positive meaning.

If you are trying to overcome a problem, like stage fright, anxiety, fear of something specific or release a limiting pattern, then ask yourself what you want  and why you don’t have it. Whatever negative belief you receive to your second question, simply reframe it into a new positive belief statement and work with it.

For example, if you want to have a better job or work opportunity enter your life, ask yourself why you don’t have it now. You may receive an answer like: “I am not good enough”, “I am not that smart”, “I am not lucky” or “I am not ready”, or that “It is hard to get a good job”, “I don’t deserve it” and so on. Look at these beliefs and start reframing them into positive belief statements. Read them out loud a few times. It will begin to shift your perception and the way you think. Then try to come up with one good and strong belief statement that encompasses the meaning of all of these new positive beliefs. For example, the counter belief statement to the above example of negative beliefs could be something like this:  “I create new opportunities, I easily find a new job, I am always good and deserving.”

After you have designed your positive affirmation, use any technique you know to help you relax deeply into a state of meditation. Many of you already know how to meditate or at least you can attend a meditation class and learn how to relax mentally.

When you meditate, take your time, don’t rush, allow yourself to enjoy the state of thoughtlessness for a while. Then slowly begin repeating your affirmation silently with your inner voice for about 10-20 minutes, maybe raising the volume of your voice if appropriate. Let it slowly sink into your unconscious.

Hypnosis Course “Hypnosis 101 with Elena Beloff”

In 2011 during the filming of my documentary film about hypnosis, I taught an intensive Hypnosis 101 one-day course to a small group of 6 students. This was one of the most exciting experiences, as I congested the most important aspects of hypnotism under 6 hours: brief history, hypnotic inductions, how to form suggestions and some stage hypnosis tricks. This hypnosis training course was also filmed in its entirety and is finally available for sale in 6 parts.

As I started the class, I of course had a plan, but I also decided to go with the flow and follow the energy of my group. By energy I simply mean my students’ state of being, the degree of their openness to suggestion and how far they wanted to explore within themselves. To my own surprise the group was very open-minded and eager not only to learn hypnosis, but also to dig deep within themselves and play out various inner parts that they wouldn’t normally act out.

During the class, I hypnotized them to be their favorite celebrities, animals, regress to being children and my personal favorite – to switch gender. Getting in touch with these inner parts allowed my students a greater sense of self-expression, insights and overcoming certain fears and inhibitions.

In the beginning, I have used a few volunteers to demonstrate and teach them a few popular hypnotic inductions, such as Dave Elman and Flower’s Method, mixing them up with progressive relaxation and eye and arm catalepsy. After these demonstrations, I focused on the entire group – I used a popular handclasp suggestibility test, leading with a hypnotic induction to deep relaxation. Each time I brought my subjects to awake state and then back to trance, it became easier and easier to induce a deeper somnambulistic state of trance, because they were beginning to be more and more naturally conditioned to go back to deep relaxation. As they went back and forth unexpectedly in a short time, this process overall created a state of receptivity to suggestion throughout the class.

After some time, all I needed is a word “Sleep!” And my subjects would plunge into a state of deep trance on command. This gave me an opportunity to work with their inner unconscious processes, imagination and creativity.

They thoroughly enjoyed being their favorite celebrities, which allowed them to feel and act like these famous people: they experienced their confidence, stance and view of the world. This is a powerful exercise, which could be so mind blowing, as it literally shifts a subject’s perception, widening the horizons and one’s possibilities. Among these celebrities were Angelina Jolie, Brat Pitt, Barack Obama, Denzel Washington and Lisa Bonet.

Regressing to being a kid could also be quite enlightening, as you give yourself a permission to experience the world anew with a sense of naiveté, openness and joix-de-vivre. As adults grow up they often acquire a set of limiting beliefs, emotional baggage which tends to torment them in life, prohibiting from enjoying it to its fullest. Inner child can evoke an openness and trust which you once had in the beginning of your life, un-infected by the useless limiting patterns, fears and beliefs. It’s nice and healing to experience this joy and a sense of lightness again.

Finally, switching gender while hypnotized has always been one of the most insightful and eye opening to the hypnotized subjects. As one gets to experience the model of the world of another gender through the specific behavior of the opposite sex, their beliefs and value systems – it becomes easier to understand one another and also improves communication between a man and a woman.

How does Smoking Cause Cancer?

When a tobacco cigarette burns, it releases a cocktail of about 4000 chemicals, more than 70 of them are cancer causing substances.

Scientists have shown that these chemicals can damage a person’s DNA and therefore change the genes, hence causing cancer by the cells growing abnormally and multiplying out of control.

Among these carcinogenic substances  are:

Tar –  a sticky brown residue, which smokers inhale every time the smoke; tar also forms stains on a smoker’s teeth, fingers and lungs

Arsenic, which is used in wood preservatives

Benzene, an industrial solvent, refined from crude oil

Cadmium, used in batteries

Formaldehyde, used in mortuaries and paint manufacturing

Polonium-210, a highly radioactive element

Chromium, used to manufacture dye, paints and alloys

1,3-Butadiene, used in rubber manufacturing

Polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, a group of dangerous DNA-damaging chemicals

Nitrosamines, another group of DNA-damaging chemicals

Acrolein, formerly used as a chemical weapon

Metals, such as nickel, lead, cobalt and beryllium. These metals are easily absorbed by the lungs when smoked.

There are many more chemicals, that don’t directly cause cancer, but they make it easier for others to do so. Nicotine is not a carcinogenic, however it is a highly addictive drug, which causes a person to want to smoke more and regularly, increasing the chances of getting cancer from inhaling harmful carcinogenic chemicals contained in the cigarette.

Hypnosis and Dating

How can hypnosis help you improve your relationships?

I recently shot a short video, which I may develop into a TV or an online show called “HypnoDating with Elena Beloff.” The concept is simple: I help people find love using hypnosis. I work with people individually to help them break through limiting beliefs and perceptions. I also work in groups using hypnosis to reverse gender, so the subjects could understand how the opposite sex thinks and functions.

Relationships are very important  – they help us grow. Through relationships we are able to confront our many parts within – those that are fear or pain based and visa versa – we can enhance our virtuous parts.  Through deep connection with others we are able to heal, grow and expand our thinking.

Many times people are afraid of love or at very least build connections that may have a potential for short or long term relationships. Especially in big cities, like New York, where people often think they are not ready or not good enough for a relationship  and so on.

Hypnosis can help you break some of the limiting beliefs that hold you back in life. Hypnosis can help you visualize your desired healthy and happy relationship, so you can begin to attract love, as you stay naturally and more open to it. Hypnosis can help you believe that you deserve happiness and love. Want it, and you can have it.

NYC Hypnotist for Social Anxiety

One of my youtube followers and long time fan, after seeing my first self-hypnosis video, asked me if I could make a self-hypnosis program for social confidence.  He said that he was going to participate in a few social events in October, which would require him to interact with new people, quickly build conversation and remain eye contact. He wanted to feel confident doing that.

From my experience as a full time consulting hypnotist in NYC,  I can say that at the bottom of social phobia problem often lies an issue of low self-esteem, constant self-judging and comparing yourself with others, which results in overplaying of a negative inner dialogue like: “ I am not that smart, I have nothing to say, others are better than me, I will say something stupid and people will laugh at me” and so on so forth. Many people with social phobia perceive social interactions as something “torturous”, rather than a relaxing activity, during which people can exchange positive energy and have fun. This successful social interaction is possible is if they are natural, self- accepting and non-judging, stay in the moment and feel internally happy.

You don’t have to try hard to be social either, you can simply feel positive, comfortable within yourself – and all social interaction will happen naturally and spontaneously. People will come to you and try to talk to you, because your positive attitude and energy will draw them to you.

I created this new self-hypnosis program which will help many people who battle with social anxiety. This hypnosis program is only 8 minutes longs. It induces a state of focused attention and allows your unconscious mind naturally and easily  accept  new programing for social confidence. Positive suggestions for ego-strengthening and high self-esteem are included in this program.

Dave Elman Induction

This is a popular Dave Elman Induction, which I frequently use when working with my clients. You can use this induction when working with clients. Make sure your subject follows your instructions word for word. When you are finished with your induction, your subject will be in a state of receptivity ( light trance). Follow up with the script of positive suggestions for change.

“Take a long deep breath in and breath out. Focus on your breath. Let the relaxation set in

Move your attention into your eye-lids. Relax them. Imagine as if they are so very heavy and sleepy. So droopy and relaxed that even if you tried to open your eyelids, you wouldn’t be able to do so. Now tried hard to open your eyes and imagine you can not. The harder you try, the more relaxed they feel. Go ahead try hard to open them, but you can not. Try even harder, and it feel like a chore trying to open them. They feel more relaxed and heavy now.

Stop trying and relax even deeper. Feel the relaxation around your eyes. Feel it slowly spreading all throughout your face now. Let go.

In a moment I will ask you to open your eyes on the count of three and close them right back.  Every time you close yours, imagine you can relax your eye-lids twice as deep.  Let’s do this right now.  One, Two, Three, open your eyes and close them. Go deeper relaxed. Allow the relaxation slowly spread throughout your face. One Two Three open yours and close them right back. Go deeper. And one more time, One Two Three open and close. That’s right deeper and deeper relaxed. Send that wave of relaxation all throughout your body now. Go deeper.

Now before we begin your mental relaxation, I would like to test your physical relaxation. I will take your hand for a moment and see how relaxed you are. Don’t try to help me or hinder in any way. Imagine your whole arm and hand feeling heavy, sleepy and droopy like a rag doll. If that’s ok for me to take your hand now, nod your head to me…. OK good. ( Take their left or right hand and  test their physical relaxation, make sure it is relaxed and droopy)

Good, now that your body is relaxed, let’s relax your mind.

I suggest that you begin to imagine numbers in your mind now from 200 going backwards one by one. As you see these numbers in your mind,  count them out loud and say the words  “deeper relaxed” after each number. Like this “ 200 deeper relaxed..199 deeper relaxed and so all the way down…” Go ahead and begin counting now…

Go deeper relaxed after each number. More and more relaxed. Deep sleep, more and more relaxed.”
