Does the practice of self hypnosis open you to demonic obsession or possession? Is it a substitute for prayer and the work of the Holy Spirit? Is there any value in it for religious people?Many religious people are misinformed about self hypnosis. Here’s an example. A devout Christian friend of mine said she didn’t need hypnosis because she had prayer and the Holy Spirit to solve her problems. She thought because I was a clinical hypnotherapist I would now be substituting hypnosis for prayer – or even denying the power of the Divine. She disapproved of it so much, she tossed it off and compared it to Ouija board use! She just thought self hypnosis and God could not coexist.[youtube:eqIJV90hBUY;Click Here For [Self Hypnosis How to];http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqIJV90hBUY&feature=related]
This self hypnosis goal should be concise and precise. By writing down your statement of intent you solidify the idea of what you want in your mind and give your subconscious mind something to work towards. You create a self hypnosis goal!Ensure you don’t include what you don’t want in any self hypnosis program. Make your self hypnosis goal positive and success-affirming. For example saying something like “I am no longer overweight” or “I no longer have unpaid bills” is not how you should word your self hypnosis goal. When you focus on not being overweight your mind creates a picture of being overweight. When you think of having no unpaid bills you must first think of unpaid bills. This is true of anything in life but it becomes extremely important in self hypnosis!

A bit of logic common sense are better suited for discussing the merits of self hypnosis.
