Want to feel better and more positive then do a visualization of something you want to do. Perhaps getting an ‘A’ on your Math exam, losing weight, or simply having fun with your friends. It can also be a visualization of world peace. Today we will discuss two types: Vision and Retreat. We say visualizations but we want to use as many senses as possible.
A Vision is a mental video of what we want to happen in the future, usually a goal. If you are a swimmer it could be winning a gold medal in the Olympics. Or it could be a vision of getting your Math exam back with an ‘A’ on it.
TO CREATE – Start daydreaming about what you want to happen. Now let the colors and shapes get sharper. Perhaps feel the gold medal in your hand or feel the rush as you stand on the podium. Hear the crowd roar. Use as many senses as possible.
Next see a white line from the present time you to the future you achieving this goal. Now see yourself going down this line to get there. You are connected to the future you, reaching your goal. Now add this up and create a mental video of your Vision. It would help to write your vision down. You can use it whenever you want as many times as you want.
TO USE IT
INSTRUCTIONS FOR 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. My Self Hypnosis Workbook has all the details in it.
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.
BAD HABITS VIDEO – Biting Nails
Perhaps make a video of your hand going to your mouth and you stop it. Perhaps then see the day you stopped biting your nails or a day when you see your beautiful nails. See yourself going thru the day without doing it. Notice how happy you are.
This is an escape from daily life for R&R. Perhaps it’s a hike along Mt Tam or sunning on a sandy beach in Maui or playing cards with your friend. First decide on your place. Develop the colors and shapes. Hear the sounds. Touch and feel. Add your activity: skiing, snoozing, sex, snorkeling. Make a mental video. This is great for a break. You can just daydream about it and use peace self hypnosis.
It’s up to you to take charge and think positive and see that the glass is more than half full. Be cool.
NOTE – Everything here are suggestions which you can modify, change, ignore or make up your own. They are also good starting points.
