I am getting interested in self-hypnosis, to be able to communicate in a direct fashion with my bodymind’s intelligent network. Here is a step-by-step approach I’ve found and want to personalize:

  1. Take a seat in a comfortable chair in a quiet place. Be sure that your clothes are loose and comfortable and the temperature is not too warm or cool. 
  2. Turn down the lights so that it’s not too bright. It doesn’t need to be dark. 
  3. Relax. You can have your eyes open or closed, whichever is most comfortable for you. 
  4. Let yourself go loose. Feel every muscle go limp. Feel your mind slow down. Good. 
  5. Breathe deeply and hold it. Feel all of your stress and worries sucked from your body and your head into your lungs. Blow them out slowly and watch them swirl away from you. 
  6. Notice the different colors of each concern. See them float away and dissolve in the air. You are feeling more and relaxed with every breath. 
  7. Feel your heart. It is strong and slow. You can feel it beating, slowly, slowly. Each time you exhale, your body relaxes more. You are calm and safe. You can feel your heart. It’s beating so slowly. 
  8. Feel your toes. They feel empty and light. They want to float away. That lightness is spreading up your legs, through your hips and into your back. Your body is so empty. You can see through it. 
  9. Feel your arms. They feel empty. Your shoulders are empty. Your neck is empty. Your head is floating, weightless. You feel so calm. 
  10. Feel liquid begin to fill your body through your navel. It’s deep blue. It feels cool and comfortable. Watch it fill up your body. Cool blue. When you are full, you will feel calm and completely at ease. 
  11. Now open your eyes and sit up. Your cool, blue feeling will stay with you.

As well, once you feel relaxed, take a deep breath and imagine yourself walking down a set of stairs. Count them on the way down, taking note of each step. Once you have practiced this, try walking down them backwards and counting them every time you take a step.
