Hypnosis doesn’t always require a hypnotist. You can learn to enter the flow state at will when you practice self hypnosis. Self hypnosis can be performed by nearly anyone and allows you to not only achieve the flow state but to also give yourself the needed powerful suggestions to tame your thoughts and retrain your mind just as you would through hypnosis sessions. Self hypnosis for weight loss is one of the most common ways people enjoy these benefits. Many also use self hypnosis for improved sleep, pain management, and to break unwanted habits like smoking.
