Believe it or not, you can do the hypnosis yourself rather than via a third party (hypnotherapist), though it can sound complicated or impossible to those who have never tried. As a matter of fact, all hypnosis is really self hypnosis because even if it's the therapist who talks and leads you, it is still you who accomplishes the hypnotic condition. The more you experience hypnosis, the quicker and easier it becomes.
Example Of Self Hypnosis In Everyday Life
Many people have experienced a trance like state many times in everyday life although they may not have called it hypnosis. For example, daydreaming which is so real to the child that the dream or imagined situation takes the place of ordinary reality, is essentially self hypnosis. In adult life, many people still daydream occasionally and some will have episodes of absent-mindedness or abstraction at times, in which they are, as we say, in a world of their own.
For instance, when driving down a familiar road, you may suddenly realize that you have travelled several miles without being able to remember details of that part of the journey. However, while driving, you were perfectly competent, adjusting to road conditions, avoiding dogs and children, stopping at red lights and so on, and reached your destination safely. Yet you realize that you have no memory at all of the last few miles and probably cannot remember what you were thinking about during that period.
No doubt you can think of dozens of other examples from your own experience. The main difference between these sorts of trance and self hypnosis are specific motivation and suggestions towards a goal. Self hypnosis is deliberate and with a purpose.
