Though heck, inductions and deepeners can be interventions too, right? Many people enjoy having a special place that they can go to.
At home, I have my Italian handmade sitting chair in our conservatory that overlooks the garden and I love to be there.
People have favourite places that they have been to in real-life, perhaps places they remember in their mind that are dear and special and sometimes we have places we imagine or have created in our mind.
The thing is that when we combine self-hypnosis with mental imagery and engage our imagination, we can utilise all the benefits and enjoy all the comfort and protection and safety that we get when we are in that place in real-life.
It is a very simple process and one used a great deal in hypnotherapy sessions, and here is a way of doing it using self-hypnosis: 4 Simple Steps To Find Your Special Place Using Hypnosis: Step One: Induce hypnosis.
Hypnotise yourself with any means that you have been shown and that you prefer.
You can read one of my articles on how to do that here on this website if you need to learn how.
Step Two: Use your imagination and start to imagine and experience being in a place where you feel comfortable, secure, safe and peaceful.
Let it be a special place.
See the sights around you, hear the sounds of this place, and notice the feelings that go with being in this place and get a vivid sense of being here in this place.
Let yourself be with other people or enjoy being by yourself, engaging in the colours, the smells and all the sound that you associate with this place.
Let your mind know no boundaries in making this the most wonderful place for you at this time.
This may be somehwere you have been before and has some special attachment to you, or maybe you just create it in the way that is right for you and let your imagination express itself beautifully.
The most important thing is that you are comfortable and at peace, feeling safe and secure in this place that your mind is presenting to you right now.
Enjoy experiencing this special place that you have created in your mind.
Be there, be right in it, immerse yourself and really feel as if you are there right now.
Notice what it is that tells you that you are at peace and enjoying the serenity, how do you know this, what tells you? Enjoy a deep and profound sense of security too.
Let your breathing continue to relax you and maybe once you have this place vivid in your mind and you really feel as if you are there, you can spend some time relaxing yourself deeper with whatever kind of progressive relaxation process that you know.
Once you feel connected with the place and fully relaxed, spend as long as you like just basking in it and observing the views around you enjoying the safety and security and mental calmness in this place.
When you have enjoyed that for long enough, then move on to the next step.
Step Three: When you feel that you have engaged all your senses and truly connected with this special place, just enjoy the sense of being undisturbed and focused on the good feelings.
At this point you might also like to take things a step further and gain some sort of learning or insight from this time spent in your special place.
if so let it happen, communicate with yourself and even tell yourself that you take these deep secure sensations with you into your life.
Take the sense of freedom with you as you progress through life too and tell yourself of anything else you have learned or consider anything you'd like to reflect positively upon.
Enjoy being able to think and benefit from this process for a while basking in the tranquillity and security of this place.
Step Four: Go deeper into it for as long as you like and whenever you are ready to bring this process to an end, then you move on.
Remind yourself that each time you come to this place it is even more beneficial and you gain more, and encourage yourself to practice and repeat the process.
Open your eyes, wiggle your toes and fingers and bring the feelings with you as you go about your life.
Very simple and basic process, but the more time you spend in such a place, the more benefits you'll derive.
