People can see the glass as half empty or half full. Who are happier, the people who see the bad things that happen every day in their life or the people who see good things happening in their life? Which are you? One of the main tenets of Positive Thinking is to see the glass as half full and to notice and take in the good things happening.
We want to notice the good things when they happen for example, our boss says something nice and we get good feelings. We want to deal with the bad things and let them go and replace them with good feelings. We then start seeing the glass as more than half full and that our life is full of good things and we are happier.
Look for the good things. For example, while you are working your boss says ‘good job on that report’, or your coffee tastes really good today, or the sun is shining, and when they happen bring your awareness to the good thing and take it with as many senses as you can. Right now it’s raining outside (this is CA so raining is a good thing) i see it, I hear it, I stick my hand out (I’m in my garage) and feel it bouncing on my hand.
A video game with a friend, watching an exciting movie on TV, or eating at a dinner party. You can use self hypnosis to enhance your experience. Strong self hypnosis for a video game, perhaps Peace or ‘relax relax’ for watching a movie, and either one before eating. Afterwards you can relive good things later by imagining them happening and you can also use self hypnosis first.
We are taking in the good things and adding them to our memories in our subconscious mind. The more good things the more positive we are. The more positive we are the more happier we are.
It can help you make the good thing a more vivid experience if you have time. You can also use it to relive the experience making it stronger and also enjoying it again. The Hypnosis Workbook explains hypnosis and self hypnosis in great details and you can read more on this blog. I teach 5 types of self hypnosis and here are 3.
Just repeat the words ‘relax relax’ and feel a wave of relaxation flow down thru your body. And the cravings, stress, anger whatever will go down and you will feel better. You can just focus on the tense area of your body and say ‘relax relax’ and this area relaxes. To start imagine it happening. Takes time.
For Peace self hypnosis you can say ‘at peace’ or ‘relaxing’ or ‘heavy’ whichever you want and use it thorough out the exercise. I use heavy. Can I use it while working? Yes it only takes a few seconds just make sure you are in a safe place.
My shoulders, arms and hands are ‘at peace’ or ‘relaxing’ or ‘heavy’
My chest and stomach are at peace
My back is at peace. I am at peace
My shoulders, arms and hands are ‘strong’ or ‘energized’
My chest and stomach are strong
My back is strong. My legs are strong. I am strong
Notice they are both the same except for one is at peace and the other is strong and Strong adds the legs. Also notice they take your awareness from your mind to your torso. Away from whatever doubts, stress, and desires you may be having.
For Peace or Strong self hypnosis you have more than one choice of words to use i.e. for strong you can use strong or energized either one is good just use the same one thru out the whole set of self hypnosis.
You can keep your eyes open or closed. Peace is usually closed, strong open, and ‘relax relax’ can be either. First read the self hypnosis script to get an idea of what it is. Then read these lines one by one and follow what is says until you get the script in your head and then let them unfold in your mind. Deep is not needed.
For Peace or Strong self hypnosis you have more than one choice of words to use i.e. for strong you can use strong or energized either one is good just use the same one thru the whole self hypnosis.
Note Everything I write in these Workbooks are suggestions which you can follow, ignore, modify, make up your own, whatever you want. In regards to the bad things other Posts will deal with this. I am working on my Positive Thinking Workbook and these Posts will be updated and will become part of my Positive Thinking Workbook.
