Hypnosis has a strong reputation for being an excellent tools for changing habits. It is also a popular stage show activity that results in some facinating displays of mental manipulation. Many psychologists will also use hypnosis as a means for treating mental dysfunction. And success coaches will use hypnosis for aiding in personal development. But hypnosis can be used for even greater purposes than these, including spiritual development.

The process of hypnosis is relatively easy, which is surprising to most, consideringrepparttar power that is associated with this phenomenon. In short,repparttar 122194 process is one of distractingrepparttar 122195 conscious mind long enough to implant alternate suggestions torepparttar 122196 inner mind. Many people think that hypnosis is a process of puttingrepparttar 122197 conscious mind asleep, but this is a common misconception of hypnosis. Hypnosis is not sleep, but rather a form of tightly focused concentration.

Many spiritual traditions use meditation as a vehicle for development. Meditation too, is a process of focusingrepparttar 122198 mind, but usually at a lower level of intensity. This lower level of intensity makes meditation easier forrepparttar 122199 individual to attain and control. Oncerepparttar 122200 mind is focused torepparttar 122201 degree common in hypnosis,repparttar 122202 ability to directrepparttar 122203 course of activity is usually lost. This is one ofrepparttar 122204 major difficulties in trying to use hypnosis by yourself. To reach a deep level, you have to have an outside source of direction.

But there are relatively simple methods of overcoming this difficulty.

Having another person direct you throughrepparttar 122205 process is a common method. This isrepparttar 122206 way many of us view hypnosis - as a process of one person leading another through a series of steps. If this person is trustworthy, and has a solid grounding in psychology andrepparttar 122207 spiritual beliefs you hold, then this isrepparttar 122208 best option, as any variation that comes up duringrepparttar 122209 process of hypnosis can be dealt with effectively.

If your purpose of using hypnosis were to stop smoking, lose weight, control procrastination, or a host of many other common goals, then you would be able to use one ofrepparttar 122210 many pre-recorded hypnotic tapes that are being sold onrepparttar 122211 market. Unfortunately, there aren't many hypnotic recordings for spiritual development, andrepparttar 122212 ones that do exist are somewhat expensive (the ecomonics of supply and demand in action).

The Power Behind 'Mini-Prayers' by Alan Tutt http://www.KeysToPower.com

We have all heard that our beliefs shape our lives. Some will say that our beliefs will influencerepparttar Universe to become what we believe it will be. Others say that our beliefs simply directrepparttar 122193 course of our actions, which in turn shaperepparttar 122194 pathway we take through life. Either way, I'm sure you will see thatrepparttar 122195 more your beliefs allow you to take a rewarding pathway,repparttar 122196 more rewarding life will become. And a tool that is used quite often for changing beliefs is called an affirmation.

Affirmations are generally used as a sort of 'mini-prayer'. If there is something that you want in your life,repparttar 122197 general instructions are to repeat an affirmation that basically says that you already have it, and this will influencerepparttar 122198 causative force (eitherrepparttar 122199 Universe or your behavior patterns) to bring it into your life. In other words, if you want a fulfilling relationship in your life (assuming you don't already have one), then you would repeat to yourself "I am loved by a very special person who makes me feel wonderful. I am in a very rewarding relationship that fulfills my every desire." By repeating this affirmation, you will eventually find that desired relationship.

Of course, there is much more torepparttar 122200 process than this, but you getrepparttar 122201 basic idea. Whatever affirmation you have decided to work with,repparttar 122202 guidelines are to repeat it to yourself over and over again hundreds of times over a period of time, like a week or so. The question that most people have at this point is not "What makes affirmations work?", but rather "What kind of affirmations will work best for me?".
