The Alternative to Generic Hypnosis Tapes and Downloads
Self hypnosis is usually thought of as a person listening to a self hypnosis tape, mp3, or other mass-produced media, intended to induce a willingness to absorb suggestions centered around a specific topic such as weight loss, stop smoking, etc. Unfortunately, the self hypnosis tape is generally prepared by someone who has never met the person being hypnotized, often presenting unwanted, even unpleasant imagery and suggestions. For example, if you sunburn easily, the last thing you want to hear about on a self hypnosis tape is a slow walk on a sunny beach. In this case, the "self" in self hypnosis simply means that you listen to the self hypnosis tape by yourself!
A true self hypnosis would necessarily be designed and created by the person who will ultimately use and benefit from the self hypnosis. Unlike the mass-produced self hypnosis tape, this self hypnosis is made for the exact purpose the person wishes, including the precise words and phrases that mean the most to that particular person. The true self hypnosis is thus crafted by the person to suit his or her own needs. The benefits derived could only be accomplished with such a personal, one-of-a-kind self hypnosis. In this case the "self" in self hypnosis really does mean that you are hypnotized by yourself!
To this end, a new approach to self hypnosis has been developed which totally eliminates the hypnotist from the equation. At the HypnoSoft website, it is the person who will ultimately use the self hypnosis, who actually creates the self hypnosis, as well, including the words and phrases that mean the most to that person. When used, the self hypnosis is spoken by a neutral, computer-generated voice, making the hypnosis a completely one person operation - a true "self" hypnosis.

Self Hypnosis Q & A by Richard Blumenthal, MS, NCC, LMHC
Q: Richard, what is hypnosis?
A: Hypnosis is a natural state of mind, deepening the focus of your attention. The feeling of hypnosis has been described as a relaxing daydream, sometimes a meditative staring off into space, or other telltale sign that the person is involved more in an inner experience, than what is going on around her or him.
Self Hypnosis is a Natural Ability
While in hypnosis, your mind is more open to helpful ideas that may be accepted directly into the way you think. These ideas can help change or control behaviors, emotions, health, anything the vast power of the mind may influence.
Q: But, I've been this way for most of my life. Can people really change?
A: It may appear sometimes that you've felt a certain way, or done a particular thing for what seems like forever. But much of it, maybe most of it, is actually learned behavior. You see, while individual people may have tendencies, what biologists call predispositions, how that tendency is played out in your life depends on what you have learned from experience. Often, we've learned a thought routine so well that our resulting behaviors and feelings seem automatic, triggered into action before we even know it. That's where hypnosis comes in. Hypnosis is a wonderful, powerful way to add carefully chosen thinking on to your experience. You can re-learn how to think about something, this time with a well-planned goal in mind. Yes, people can definitely change. More importantly, you can definitely change!
Q: Richard, I think I read somewhere that "all hypnosis is really self hypnosis". But, if that's true, then why don't these changes happen just because I want them to?
A: Hypnosis requires something called induction. Remember, hypnosis is a unique state of mind, different from your ordinary state of mind. Your ordinary mind must therefore be induced, that is changed into a different state to acheive hypnosis. Neuroscientists using sophisticated brain imaging equipment have actually found important alterations between the functioning of the ordinary brain and the hypnotically induced brain. Specifically, hypnosis seems to bypass some of the barriers the brain has built to inhibit new learning. The hypnotic state diminishes these barriers, allowing ideas to flow more directly to the learning centers with greater ease.
Q: Isn't hypnosis just for people with really bad problems, or mental illness?
A: Self Hypnosis has been used by the most successful atheletes, high powered business people, actors, musicians, writers, and others, all for the most positive and uplifting of reasons. They all want to improve their skills, their health, their appearance, and enjoyment of life. Hypnosis makes their talent more available. Yes, it's true that hypnosis is an extraordinary therapeutic tool used in clinical psychology, but it is literally for EVERYONE. It makes that which is good even better and transforms better into the best!
Q: What if I can't wake up from the hypnosis?
A: There is truly no such thing. In all my years of reading about and practicing self hypnosis, I have never once come across a case of a hypnotized person being unable to awaken from it. Sometimes, hypnosis feels so relaxing and soothing that the person may fall asleep, but even then will awaken quickly, as you would from a short nap. By the way, I always begin every hypnosis script with the phrase, "At any time you have the ability to awaken yourself and instantly return to your ordinary thinking." You are in total control during the experience. I'm just your guide.
Q: What are hypnosis scripts?
A: The term hypnosis script (or self hypnosis script) simply refers to the dialogue that is spoken in order to induce the state of hypnosis and then make the desired suggestions. Hypnosis scripts can include techniques that range from emphasizing progressive relaxation and descriptive imagery, to story-telling and direct suggestion. The goal of every script is to induce the state of hypnosis for a specific outcome. Based on years of study and practice, I have included a variety of hypnosis techniques in each of my hypnosis mp3s.
Q: What can hypnosis be used for?
A: While hypnosis is best known for successful weight loss, to quit smoking, to reduce anxiety and tension, for self confidence, fear, etc, the truth is, hypnosis may be useful for any topic that is influenced by the mind. That certainly takes in a lot of territory. We can think of it like this: self hypnosis can't change the weather, but it can help you to remember to use your umbrella. Self hypnosis can't change the need for a mathematical formula, but it can make the formula easier to remember.
Q: Why should I use Richard's hypnosis mp3?
A: Well, a few reasons. I've studied and practiced counseling and hypnosis for over 20 years. I hold a Master of Science in Counseling (MS), I am certified by the National Board of Certified Counselors (NCC), and I am a New York State Licensed Mental Health Counselor (LMHC). I have written and lectured extensively on the subject, having been published and cited in numerous important works including Medical Hypnoanalysis, The International Journal of Psychosomatics, The Journal of Human Behavior and Learning, The British Journal of Clinical and Experimental Hypnosis, and "The New Hypnosis", Dr. Daniel Araoz's landmark book.
I've called on all my experience and knowledge to create this series of hypnosis mp3s. I am confident that you will find your hypnosis a lifelong source of personal power. May your hypnosis lead to accomplishment, enjoyment, and fulfillment!
