This revised and expanded edition provides a presentation of the essential steps of self-hypnosis and goal-directed relaxation and imagery. Case studies and scripts for mastering self-hypnosis are also included.
Written by two PhDs, this is a very good book on the subject of self-hypnosis> I have a dozen books on the subject, and I think this is the best. Stop smoking, lose weight, gain confidence in yourself, whatever you wish to do that your mind can control (and believe me, the mind can control almost all aspects of human behavior), this book will help you.
Many years ago, I hypnotized a 70+ year old man--a friend--who had arthritis, and suggested to him that his pain would be relieved--and it was! That was my first attempt. He was very grateful.
I am not a hypnotist. But it does work, and it did for me on the first try. We all suggest things to ourselves every day. Things like, "I've always been heavy," or "I just am not coordinated and never have been," both are negative suggestions which, if you state them often enough convice you that they are true, and they become true. I have a friend with a PhD in philosophy and a dcotorate in medicine who has talked himself into believing that he is a "physical coward," and so, of course, he is. What nonsense!
Why not use positive self-images, instead?
Anyway, this book will teach you valid methods to enhance your life. Try it!
