You Probably Have Some Questions
Before You Try Hypnosis
Hypnosis is a natural state of selective, focused attention. We’ve all had the experience of becoming absorbed in a good movie or enjoyed an activity so much we’ve lost track of time. Hypnosis is no more mysterious than this, yet used with purpose and intention, the process can be a wonderful tool for change. While in this heightened state of concentration, the mind becomes very attentive, engaged, and aware, primed to receive suggestions that activate positive shifts in comfort and perception.
The mind assimilates and learns easily in hypnosis, so with practice, the mind-body bridge becomes stronger and more readily available for your benefit.
Hypnosis cannot substitute for medical care, this and other medical hypnosis products are not intended to diagnose, treat or cure any physical or mental illness.
Everyone experiences hypnosis differently, and even from session to session you will have somewhat different experiences. For some people, their conscious thoughts remain active during hypnosis -- not a problem, just take those thoughts as a signal that your mind is doing its job, and bring your focus back to the moment with simple tools that are part of the program. On the other hand, some people will enter very deep hypnosis right away and may not remember everything from the session, and that’s good too.
Most people are in the middle of the range of awareness, and feel deeply relaxed and comfortable within hypnosis, and as the session continues you may or may not remember all that was said in the session.
- Please never listen to a hypnosis recording while driving or engaged in any activity that requires your attention.
- Listen once each day (or more often), in a comfortable position where you’re free from distraction (arrange for pets and people to give you some space).
- Many recordings come with specific instructions about how often to listen and the best times of day or night.
- Earbuds are recommended, though you can listen with a speaker if you prefer.
- For the most part HypnoMothering’s hypnosis MP3s are about 25 minutes in length, though a few may be as short as five minutes and one is about 90 minutes.
For each program, the practice suggestions are a bit different, and the instructions are clear for each course. With fertility, you’ll watch a short video every day that will introduce a self-hypnosis technique, take you through a coaching exercise, or lead you through a hypnosis process that just is easier to work with in the video format, and you’ll listen to one of 28 MP3 hypnosis sessions each day (usually at night on the way to sleep), coordinated with your cycle. For childbirth, you’ll watch teaching videos at your own pace, practice self-hypnosis every day, and listen to one of 12 hypnosis recordings every day (there’s a listening guide provided with the program). For the postpartum course, there’s no need to practice the techniques or put yourself on a schedule for listening -- just use the 9 recordings and techniques as they’re needed to effect changes in the moment.
Both of these, and everything in between, are okay.
Whether you go into a deep hypnotic trance and don’t remember much of the session, or find you’re mentally active throughout makes no difference to the benefits you receive from the hypnosis. The three ingredients to experiencing benefit are intention, permission, and the ability to follow simple instructions. If following the instructions causes you to enter a deep sleeplike state, trust that your unconscious is taking care of absorbing the suggestions. If following the instructions feels challenging or your mind sometimes wanders to something else, there’s no need to fight this, rather take these signals as cues to bring your focus back to the breath as instructed at the beginning each audio. Either way, your unconscious mind is receiving the information.
