Sample Hypnotic Suggestions

This article was written by William Hewitt on May 29, 2002
posted under Hypnosis

What follows is just a mini-sample of possible suggestions for various purposes to give you an idea of what hypnotic suggestion is all about.

For Auras
Your aura radiates from you with the strength and colors that you decide by your mental, physical, and emotional condition. You choose to be in such a positive, healthy, balanced state that your aura is powerful, clear, and brilliant with the beneficial energy you desire.

For Concentration
You will feel a tremendous drive and concentration power with everything you do.

For Depression
You alone determine how you are going to feel. You are in control. You choose to feel happy, important, and worthy.

For Drinking
You have made a decision to not drink alcohol. You will feel free of the desire to drink alcohol, and you will not drink it.

For Group Confidence
You will push yourself to meet people. You will take the initiative. You will feel the drive to go out and meet people, and you will start the conversation with ease.

For Healing
You can promote healing in any area of your body by visualizing that area to be flooded in healing, white light, and visualizing the area to be normal and healthy.

For Language Study
When you study (name of language) you will intensely concentrate as you study, and you will remember all the (name of language) you have studied.

For Longevity
You are what you think. You are now commanding your mind to always direct you to lead your life in such a manner as to promote a long, healthy, happy life. And you will listen to and follow the beneficial dictates of your mind.

For Memory
Your mind will be like a soft, absorbent sponge and everything you concentrate on you will absorb like a sponge. When you want to remember what you have thought about, you will squeeze your mind like a sponge and you will remember everything you have concentrated on.

For Miscellaneous
Positive thoughts bring you benefits and advantages you desire.

For Money Management
The words bargain and sale no longer entice you. You realize those words are used by someone else to get your money. You purchase only what you truly need, and you do not allow merchants to decide what you need or want.

For Physical Exercise
You will have the desire to physically exercise. You will find time each day to physically exercise, and you will exercise your body vigorously. When you have done this, you will feel simply great.

For Phobias
You will feel relaxed and at ease (mention the phobic situation). You will feel relaxed, confident, and you will be free of fear.

For Procrastination
You will organize the things you have to do, and you will do them to get them out of the way.

For Reading
You will read faster and better comprehend everything you read.

For Time Management
You are now making a commitment to yourself to not put off until tomorrow what can and should be done today.

For Self-Confidence
You are your own person, and you are in total control.

For Sleep
When you go to sleep this evening you will quickly drop off into a deep, sound sleep for eight hours. The next thing you know it will be daylight, and you will awaken refreshed and alert.

For Smoking
Regardless of what happens at work, you will feel relaxed. You will feel free of the desire to smoke the entire working time.

For Weight Loss
You will feel satisfied with very small quantities of food, and these small quantities of food will satisfy you completely.

For Work Success
You will handle all situations on the job in a very relaxed, calm, and sensible manner, free of tension.

From these few suggestions, you can begin to see the scope and power of self-hypnosis. You can literally alter your life in any way you desire by merely giving yourself the proper suggestions using self-hypnosis.

In my new book, How to Survive Mercury Retrograde (And Venus & Mars, Too), I emphasize that a retrograde planet can be used productively. A planet does not have to be moving in direct motion to get positive results. The backward motion of a planet through an astrological sign gets us to be more reflective and does, to some degree, slow down... read this article
