Guided Hypnosis Download Guide

As you listen to Mindset recordings, it is only natural that you become curious about their positive effect, especially if you have not experienced the therapeutic effects of Clinical Hypnosis before.  Clinical Hypnosis has a long and effective history of bringing positive and beneficial change into people’s lives.

You can of course listen to your recording as often as you like, as it will always be of benefit to you.

The introduction runs for approximately 9 minutes and the Hypnosis Session around 50 minutes.  You only need to listen to the introduction track once.

Absolutely not.

The most commonly asked question about hypnosis is: “Will I act like a chicken?”

While most of us have been exposed to the entertainment of stage hypnosis, or even know of someone who took part in or witnessed a stage show, these experiences are far removed from hypnosis applied for a therapeutic result.

Clinical hypnosis is a gentle experience. Your body becomes very relaxed while your mind remains very focused. The process of Clinical Hypnotherapy allows you to bypass thoughts and impulses that no longer serve you and replace them with new and healthy patterns of behaviour. It is very much like deleting old files in a computer and replacing them with new and more helpful ones.

When hypnosis is applied for a therapeutic result, the most frequent reaction is relief at just how simple and effective the process actually is.  This is especially the case where change has been needed to shift long standing ways of unwanted behaviour and will power alone just hasn’t been enough.

Clinical hypnosis is a well recognised therapy that can help you address personal issues in a powerful yet gentle way.  The process is safe and you are always in control.

There is no particular way that you ‘should listen’ and there is nothing that you need to ‘try’ to do. Just allow yourself to listen to what is being said on each recording.  Allow yourself to comfortably unwind and let your mind drift.  Even if completely unrelated thoughts come into your mind it will not affect the outcome. We are all unique in how we arrive at that state where our subconscious mind processes information and gains resolution.  All you need do is find a place that is safe, comfortable and secure for you. Once you have settled yourself, make sure your arms and legs are in an uncrossed position. Make sure you are away from any and all disturbances, distractions or interruptions. This is your time to relax and completely unwind.

Yes absolutely.

Mindset hypnosis recordings are designed to be played when you will not be disturbed and preferably at night when you are about to go to sleep. It is perfectly normal for you to fall asleep while listening to any recording. They were designed this way to entrain your brain for new and more satisfying results in your life.

Your subconscious mind is more powerful than you can imagine and you will hear every positive suggestion that is said whether you are deeply relaxed or deeply asleep.  All the information is absorbed into your subconscious mind while you are in a relaxed and receptive state.

Your subconscious mind will quietly take on board all suggestions for positive change, reinforcing and leading the way for you to attract what you desire

A common misconception is that somehow you are not in control when you are deeply relaxed and listening to any hypnosis recording. This is not the case.  When you are in this deeply relaxed stated you are completely in control.  Your mind is actually more highly alert. If for any reason at all, you needed to open your eyes during any recording and become wide awake feeling calm and refreshed, you will easily be able to do so, automatically and with full awareness.

Hypnosis resembles the state you are in as you enter sleep: you are not fully asleep but you are not fully awake either, just very deeply relaxed.  Your mind will only accept any suggestions you wish to accept. For example:  if you wish to break free from the past and become stress free, your subconscious mind will happily accept any suggestions to do so.  You can also remain calm in the knowledge that your subconscious mind will not accept any suggestion on any part of any recording that is contrary to your personal, ethical or religious beliefs.

You can listen to our recordings as often as you like as they will always be of benefit to you.  You must not use them however, while you are driving a vehicle, operating any heavy machinery or performing any task where your full attention is required.  There is no limit on how many times you should listen in a day.  If you awaken in the night and can’t get back to sleep, then this is an ideal time to play your recording of choice. Chose whatever recording you feel drawn to and you will experience the comfort this brings.

Mindset programs are powerful tools to help you bring about positive change.  They are however, not a substitution for any medical advice or medication and are for personal use only. If in any doubt at all, we recommend you talk to your medical practitioner and ask their advice before proceeding with any Mindset program.

Hypnotherapy is a combination of counselling and hypnosis.  Of all the behavioural therapies, it produces the most immediate results.

Hypnosis is a powerful tool for change which can alter the way you think and feel at a very influential and deep level.  For years Hypnotherapists have been helping individuals increase their feelings of self-acceptance, self esteem, motivation and confidence.

The development of your personality begins very soon after you are born, when you begin to form your sense of self and start to make sense of everything happening around you and to you. By the age of two you are able to differentiate between yourself and others. It is at this time that you become aware of those around you, particularly your parents and other primary caregivers and how and when they approved or disapproved of your behaviour.

Your sense of self is developed through literally thousands of these small interactions between the behaviours you exhibit and the reactions of your caregivers – including their judgments. It is through these interactions that you develop your sense of worth.

While you’re conscious or ‘aware’ mind has forgotten most of the times when you received negative feedback, each negative interaction is retained in your subconscious, exactly as you heard it.  Every look of irritation, every time you felt anxious or hurt is recorded and remembered.  It is important to remember that these memories are all retained and recalled by your subconscious mind without the benefit of the years of experience you now possess. In other words, your subconscious mind still sees those events exactly as they happened and reacts accordingly.

How you picture yourself and your sense of who you are is a summation of all the information held in your subconscious.  This is why improving self esteem can feel like a constant battle.  It’s very hard to argue with thousands of unconscious memories.

Consciously and intellectually, you may affirm that you are a good person, but your subconscious mind counters this affirmation with all of these past negative memories and experiences.  These memories are locked away in the subconscious, silently influencing you.

You can’t refute, reframe or challenge these memories, because your conscious memory has forgotten most of the specifics of what has happened.  You therefore can’t refute, reframe or challenge what you can’t remember.

Hypnosis has the ability to speak directly to and influence your unconscious mind.  It does not rely of the ‘logic’ of your conscious mind, but rather enables you to re-program your subconscious mind and its core thinking processes.  Changing these core subconscious thought processes in turn influences the way you see yourself and the way you act and react.

The process of Hypnosis is actually a very natural state that we move in and out of many times a day. It is that state where the mind rests and refreshes itself, free from analytical thought. A common example of this is day dreaming. Hypnosis will assist you experience a state of mind known as ‘Alpha’. When in Alpha, you are up to 200 times more open to suggestion and more able to receive messages that influence positive change. Your mind can focus on the things you wish to change and on the best ways to do so, free from critical or anxious thoughts.

In this state, your conscious mind has a rest from everyday cares and concerns and allows the subconscious part of your mind to take care of things for you. The process of Clinical Hypnotherapy allows you to rest your mind to the point where you become open to sustainable change, free from internal struggle.

Normal awakening consciousness is called Beta. In Beta, you are paying attention to and processing a multitude of stimuli from the outside world. In Alpha, you allow yourself to slow down and really focus on the changes you wish to bring about in your life.

Because hypnosis is a state of focused attention and heightened awareness, it allows you to bypass unhelpful thoughts and impulses accumulated over the years and replace them with new and healthy patterns of behaviour.

You are not asleep nor are you unconscious. You simply allow your subconscious mind to accept suggestions for positive change rather than ‘trying’ to make them happen with your conscious mind. It is that state of deep relaxation within your body and increased and heightened awareness within your mind.

Hypnosis allows you to access your creative potential.   Unwanted long held thoughts, beliefs and patterns of behaviour can be deleted and rewritten.  It is simply the power of your own mind.

A common misconception about Hypnotherapy is that clients under hypnosis cannot react, and therefore the Hypnotherapist has ultimate control over the patient. This is not the case.  In Alpha, the patient is always in control and is fully capable of reacting and making decisions.

Hypnosis resembles the state you are in as you enter sleep: you are not fully asleep but you are not fully awake either, just very deeply relaxed.  Your mind will only accept the suggestions from the Hypnotherapist you wish to accept. For example, if you wish to break free from the past and become stress free, your subconscious mind will happily accept any suggestions to do so.

Because you are relaxed or otherwise occupied mentally, the suggestions given to you by the Hypnotherapist will be acted upon more easily by the subconscious.  Clients who attend for hypnotherapy spend most of their session sitting or reclining comfortably, experiencing deep relaxation.  The most frequent reaction is relief at just how simple and effective the process actually is.  This is especially the case where a client has tried to change long standing patterns of unwanted behaviour where will power alone just hasn’t been enough.

Post hypnotic suggestions are those that will be carried out by you when you come out of the hypnotic state. The best example of this is having no desire to engage in unwanted behaviours anymore, feeling an absence of stress and a sense of comfort.

Most people are unaware they use a form of hypnosis in everyday life called ‘self-suggestion’. Thoughts such as “I can’t relax” or “I can’t do this” are powerful negative self suggestions and are a form of self hypnosis. In a Hypnotherapy session, these unhelpful thoughts can be deleted and rewritten with new healthy thoughts that support you.

The subconscious mind takes care of approximately 95% of mind function. It is the most powerful computer ever devised and is capable of running multiple tasks simultaneously. It does not judge, criticise, analyse or reject. It acts quickly but in many cases, not appropriately. It is emotional and unaware. It does not understand nor have a sense of humor and takes everything literally.  It is programmed from our early childhood experiences.

Our subconscious mind also seems to be innocent and naïve, possessing the intelligence level equivalent to a four year old child.  It wants to help us as much as possible and tries to help in the best way it knows how.

Many times however, it does not help us in the most appropriate way and needs to be given direction.

Imagine there is a computer in front of you that represents your subconscious mind.  Imagine also that your subconscious ‘computer’ mind is full of programs that represent all of the experiences you have ever had in your life.  Now imagine that there is a Computer Programmer standing right in front of that computer guarding it. Nothing will get in or out of that computer without the Programmer’s permission.

This ‘Computer Programmer’ represents your conscious rational mind and it is in charge of whatever new program can be installed and what old programs can be removed.  It will stop and examine anything to be deposited into the subconscious ‘computer’ mind before it enters. One of the main problems with the conscious ‘Programmer’ mind is that it is very guarded, geared very critically and does not like change. It is also your short term memory.

The conscious mind is a creature of habit. It tends to keep the status quo rather than make any drastic changes. It would rather keep things the way they are.  And so even if something may be bad for it, the conscious mind tends to keep things the same way because it is comfortable or familiar with the way it is.

In personal success literature this is often referred to as “being comfortably uncomfortable in your comfort zone.”

For example, when it comes to changing a habit like smoking, the conscious mind can be told to stop smoking over and over again but that conscious mind will put up defenses to keep the status quo.   It will find any number of rationalisations to keep things the way they are.  Have you ever heard a smoker tell you how much a cigarette relaxes them or helps cope with stress whilst admitting on the other hand how much they hate the habit?

It seems like no matter how many good reasons you have for change, that Programmer will continue to fight them off. This is why it is so hard to make a positive change such as smoking cessation or weight loss or other behavioural changes with most non hypnotic programs.  The Programmer part of our mind is not ‘wrong’ – it is only doing its job by keeping the status quo.

Going past the conscious Programmer into the computer, you will find the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is the most perfect composite of information ever devised. Every sight, sound, smell and taste you have experienced since you were born is logged in perfect clarity in your subconscious mind. This is your long term memory.

Now here‘s the problem. Your subconscious mind is being operated by that four year old child. The child is innocent and naïve. It wants to help you but doesn’t know the best way to do it. It therefore tries to help you the best way it knows how.

A good example would be someone who has experienced a very bad car accident. Wishing to protect that person, the unconscious mind may think it best to cause a panic attack so they will never leave the house again to get in a car. To a child this may seem like the best solution.

Another example would be someone who has a serious problem with gambling. A four year old child may think it best that they lose their job so there is no money to spend.

You can see where the subconscious mind really wants to help but may be completely missing the boat. It can also only go on the information that it has.  For example: If you were raised with the belief that life is a struggle, it is likely that you will continue to make this true for yourself until you get some new ‘programs’ into your computer.   To change old beliefs and thought patterns however, any new information must be received and accepted by the Programmer to ‘uninstall’ the old programs.

Hypnosis is a perfect method to positively influence the subconscious computer mind that is acceptable to the rational Programmer mind.  This is because hypnosis allows the Programmer to be in a relaxed state while they are presented with ‘new software.’ Once that new software is in the computer, the Programmer is happy to use it at will, especially if they are helpful and useful programs.  In fact, the more positive and proactive programs you have in your computer, the more successful your Programmer mind can be.

The subconscious computer mind wants to protect you, help you solve your problems and help you be a functional member of society. When the subconscious mind has new and more helpful programs, the old redundant programs (and therefore old ways of doing things) are not needed anymore. Once the appropriate suggestions have been given and accepted by your subconscious mind, it will set you on the path that is right for you.  This is the nature of your subconscious mind.  It wants to create success for you as a habit.

Once the subconscious mind has these instructions and realises the error of its ways, it quickly changes course and uses the proper solutions.  The four year old child wants to help you as much as it can.

Habits are regulated by the subconscious mind.  The good news is if you learned to do something, you can unlearn it. If something was ‘installed’ it can be ‘un installed.’ When you have both you’re conscious and subconscious mind working for you to change your habits, you can begin to live your full potential in life without unnecessary resistance.

Once you have your conscious and subconscious mind on the same page for success, you can begin to create the life you truly desire.
