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.

NYC Hypnotist advice on self-hypnosis

Hypnosis is natural state of focused attention and mental concentration where your thoughts are being put on hold. You no longer doubt, criticize or think about tomorrow or your next appointment and what you would say to your boyfriend. You are still, calm and open to incoming suggestion.

In this part of my blog under category ” Hypnosis and my 2013 Yoga Passbook.” I shall document my experience with NYC yoga/dance classes. Fortunately, I received this wonderful gift, which allows me 2 or 3 complimentary visits at the best NYC Yoga/Pilates/Dance studios. These wonderful practices have a lot in common with hypnotism and I am sure there are many new things I will be learning, which I will gladly share with you.

Aug 1st/2013 (day1) -My first day of yoga was at Exhlale on Central Park West called Exhale Chill. Having taking many yoga classes before, I have to say this one was one of the most  unusual. It was a super slow yoga, where you go over 6-8 postures and just relax on each one of them  for about 5-8 minutes.  My yoga teacher Marcy Tropin was very attentive and personable.  She was connecting with everyone either through her advising touch or something she would say in the beginning of the class or at the end to each student.

If you want to combine yoga and self-hypnosis, this is perfect yoga for you. While resting in comfortable poses, covered with a blanket with your back on the comfortable bolster, lulled into a sooting state of light trance by the beatiful Gregorian chants on the background – you can use your personal mantra or affirmation, simply by repeating it over and over within yourself silently. Learn how design your personal affirmations for self-hypnosis here.

Here is a sample of the Gregorian chant which I enjoyed profoundly at my Yoga experience at Exhale:

How to hypnotize yourself

Does self-hypnosis work?

People often ask me if self-hypnosis works and  what’s the best way to do self-hypnosis. There are many ways, of course. You can listen to self-hypnosis audios with a hypnotic induction leading to trance. You can meditate using deep breathing techniques or your personal mantras. You can also look at various hypnotic moving visuals, like the waves of the ocean. Or you can use hypnotic visuals still images, like spirals for example. The goal of all of these methods is to help you achieve a thoughtless state of mind, where you no longer judge your environment or the information that comes into your mind.

I found a hypnotic spiral on fotolia images, which doesn’t look like a usual hypnosis spiral. It’s actually a square, which consists of many circles with warm light red to black colors. If you look at this hypnotic image, after a few seconds you will find yourself getting hypnotized, all thoughts will naturally begin to push away into the distance. You will feel a subtle relaxation in your facial muscles. Even your eyes will feel hypnotized, feeling a little heavy and very relaxed. A soothing wave of relaxation will spread down into your nose and cheeks, all the way down into your chin. Try it for yourself. Just stare at this image below for a few moments. Once you feel relaxed, you can simply say your positive affirmations out loud, letting them sink deep into your unconscious mind. For example, if you want to feel more focused and productive today you can use these affirmations:

I feel more focused today    My mind is sharp and clear   I have a great memory

I accomplish more every day   I feel more and more productive  Ideas come naturally to me

I feel more energized now    My thoughts are positive   I am driven   I succeed every day

Hypnosis square

 

Good luck getting self-hypnotized! You can also use your own personal affirmations with this self-hypnsis visual. Make sure your affirmations are always stated in present tense and in positives. Let me know how this hypnotic “square-circle” works for you!

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.

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.”
