How to Listen to Your Hypnosis Session

Read our guidelines for getting started with your session

Have you downloaded your Instant-Hypnosis.com session? Wondering how to get started? This page provides quick instructions to get you up-and-running as quickly as possible.

Prepare for listening

If you've purchased a hypnosis download, you'll want to start by transferring the MP3 file to your iPod or other MP3 player. Alternatively, you may wish to burn to an audio CD in order to listen on your portable CD player.

Next, make yourself comfortable. Hypnosis works best when you're totally at ease. So sit in a comfortable position, or perhaps lay down on your bed. Resolve to leave all the stresses of your day behind you, and slip on your headphones.

Remember, this is YOUR time... to relax and to change your life.

Listening to your session

Play the recording. You'll hear an introduction, followed by the main session.

The vast majority of the sessions include an induction, which will really help you to let go and relax, along with soothing ambient music to help you gently drift away.

Follow the instructions given during the session, such as the visualization exercises. Don't worry if you miss a step, or lose track. That's fine. There's really no need for you to pay too much attention to what's being spoken. Your subconscious mind will do that for you.

But while you can hear the visualization exercises... follow them, and let whatever happens, happen.

What if your mind starts wandering? Don't worry if you suddenly start thinking about events that happened during the day. It's a perfectly natural response. Just acknowledge the thought and let go. You shouldn't rush to "clear" your mind... you can't force it. Whatever happens is perfect for you.

Eventually the hypnosis session will draw to a close. You'll hear a section containing upbeat music, and the hypnotherapist will slowly bring you out of your "trance" and back into the waking world.

You'll then stretch, get up and feel great!

After the session

When most people finish their first hypnosis session, they're usually surprised when they look at the clock.

The session either seemed much, much longer than they thought, or a whole lot shorter. That's because you're in such a deep state of relaxation, you actually forget about monitoring the time and just enjoy the experience.

You just get a "feeling" about how long it all took.

You should listen to your hypnosis session once a day for the first week. For the three weeks after that, listen between one and three times per week.

By this point, you should have really seen the change in your life... the positive stories and suggestions in your session will have started to influence your thoughts, behavior patterns... possibly even your body shape, depending on the session you're using.

Pay special attention to the comments from other people. Because change is made on such a deep level, sometimes individuals don't realize the change that has taken place within themselves.

However people around you DO notice... so keep your ear out for those messages!

After the first month, you can listen to your session as frequently or as infrequently as you desire. The qualities you desire have had enough time to take affect on your subconscious. If you wish, you can "top-up" by listening once every three months after the first month.

It's really down to you. Further listening can only do good!

If you purchased a special pack or hypnosis course -- such as the Ultimate Weight Loss hypnosis program -- you will have different listening requirements. Most of the packs and courses require you to listen to a session once a day for a whole week before moving onto the next. Refer to your original purchase e-mail for full instructions.

Listening to our hypnosis courses

At Instant-Hypnosis.com, we also provide a series of hypnosis courses. These are specially created hypnosis sessions that are delivered direct to you, week by week. Each session builds on the power of the last.

It's just like visiting a hypnotherapist each week - yet without the hassle, expense, and potential embarrassment!

We typically recommend listening to each session for at least three times over the period of one week. Then, move onto the next session. Occasionally, a hypnosis session will suggest different timings. You are welcome to follow these at your discretion.

Remember, there are no hard and fast rules for listening to hypnosis sessions. Go with what feels most comfortable for you. If you feel that you need to give one session more attention than another, do it!

Common hypnosis myths

The world of hypnosis is plagued with myths and rumors, the majority of which are completely unfounded. In this section, we'll attempt to address a few common concerns.

Firstly, hypnosis is completely safe. In reality, all hypnosis is "self-hypnosis". You are always in charge of what happens. You cannot be hypnotized if you don't wish to be hypnotized. And despite what James Bond movies have told us, you cannot be hypnotized to do things against your will.

That sentence is worthy of repetition: you cannot be hypnotized to do things against your will.

Hypnosis is 100% SAFE.

Another rumor states that you can get "stuck" in hypnosis and never come out again. Again, nothing could be further from the truth. If a hypnotherapist walked out of the room during a session, or your CD player stopped working, you'd simply wake up or drift off to sleep, depending on your state of mind. No-one has ever been stuck in a state of "terminal hypnosis!"

Questions and answers

It's natural to have still further questions about hypnosis, especially if you're new to the world of self-development. Here are a few common questions and answers that may help.

- Can anyone be hypnotized?

Absolutely. You don't need a special mindset, or exceptional relaxation abilities. You don't need to be either especially clever or suggestible. You simply need to want to be hypnotized.

- I'm critical. Surely it won't work for me?

If you're giving it a go, you're not critical. You have an open mind. And even though you may doubt some of the processes that are happening, you'll soon find that they DO make a big difference in a very short period of time. And THAT will turn you into a believer!

- My mind keeps wandering. What should I do?

Just let whatever happens, happen. It's all good. Even though your conscious mind may be thinking about the world around you, your subconscious will react to the information given. If you want to calm your mind, simply acknowledge any thoughts that come along, and let them go. Don't emotionally attach. And, again, remember... whatever happens is perfect for you at this time.

- Is it okay to fall asleep when listening?

It's best if you manage to stay awake while listening to your hypnosis session. It isn't critical, however you'll find yourself reaping greater results that way. If you find yourself continuously falling asleep, try sitting up during the session.

- Can I use several sessions at the same time?

It's often best to focus on one session at a time. This allows a more targeted approach to changing your mindset. After listening to one session for a week, THEN move onto the next. If you have, say, three sessions, and you wish to listen to each once a day for a week, you may find it takes slightly longer to change your thought patterns.

-- Will I forget everything from the session?

Some people are in such a deep state of relaxation, they don't remember exactly what transpired during the session. Most people however remember much of the session with ease. But it doesn't matter either way... whether you remember or not, that's just fine.
