Reading a hypnosis script aloud, self-hypnotizes the reader. You can reprogram your subconscious by practicing this simple technique. Meditative reading is a form of active meditation and is the easiest, foolproof method for self-hypnosis. The principle consists of putting yourself in a state of narrowed attention in which suggestibility is increased. Your mind then becomes receptive for affirmations and positive suggestions. You gain access to subconscious beliefs that shape your body, your mind, and your behavior.
1. Relax. Be calm. Breathe.
2. Say an induction phrase, such as “I am calm like the sea.”
3. Read slowly and aloud. Pause after every sentence. Think about what you read.
4. “Wake up” by counting to five and repeating the induction phrase.
The more you practice, the more you gain control over your mind and ultimately the world you live in. Try it…
Self-Hypnosis Script #1
Every experience can be transformed into positive energy. You really CAN change your reality. What is your belief system? I let go. Agree to new beliefs and everything changes. Focus on understanding rather than being understood. Are you in a parent, child or adult ego-state? Focus. Biofeedback amplifies thoughts. I create my dream. Negative feedback pushes me towards the target. I am a spiritual warrior. To make the shadow disappear, you must shine light on it. Watch your thought like you watch children playing on a playground. Garbage in, garbage out. I am the master of my mind, my body, my universe. I am the master of my dream. I don’t emotion-feed the mental parasites. It is better to ask questions. I take nothing personally. Always be able to walk away! Keep Breathing. Who do you want to be today? Abandon limiting beliefs! You are the operator of your consciousness. Place yourself in a positive frame of mind. Don’t wait for the next opportunity; make the best out of the one you already have. Things manifest through the Word. Begin with the end in mind. I smile. This, too, will pass. Everything will be fine. I am a spiritual warrior. What if I die tomorrow? Live one day at a time. Look behind the curtain of thought! I am connected with the entire universe. I will be fine, whatever happens.
(…) We need to reverse the formula for happiness and success. In the last three years, I’ve traveled to 45 different countries, working with schools and companies in the midst of an economic downturn. And what I found is that most companies and schools follow a formula for success, which is this: If I work harder, I’ll be more successful. And if I’m more successful, then I’ll be happier. That undergirds most of our parenting styles, our managing styles, the way that we motivate our behavior.
And the problem is it’s scientifically broken and backwards for two reasons. First, every time your brain has a success, you just changed the goalpost of what success looked like. You got good grades, now you have to get better grades, you got into a good school and after you get into a better school, you got a good job, now you have to get a better job, you hit your sales target, we’re going to change your sales target. And if happiness is on the opposite side of success, your brain never gets there.What we’ve done is we’ve pushed happiness over the cognitive horizon as a society. And that’s because we think we have to be successful, then we’ll be happier.
Mental models are the inner representation about how things work in the outer world.
They affect how you work with information and determine decisions.
Double-loop learning uses feedback to shape decisions, as well as the decision-making rules and their underlying model.
Are you a single-loop learner ? Try paying attention to your decision-making habits. This makes you become aware of which personal beliefs and mental models make you do things. Adjust your beliefs and you will take different decisions. The world will be different as you act and perceive it with a self-improved model of reality. Recursive positive feedback loops amplify your chosen beliefs. You manifest your reality.
“The idea is actually pretty simple. Think about something you’ve always wanted to add to your life and try it for the next 30 days. It turns out, 30 days is just about the right amount of time to add a new habit or subtract a habit — like watching the news — from your life.”
Using simple, delightful illustrations, designer Stefan Sagmeister shares his latest thinking on happiness — both the conscious and unconscious kind. His seven rules for life and design happiness can (with some customizations) apply to everyone seeking more joy.
