About Hypnosis MP3s
It is best to listen to the guided hypnosis audios in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed. Most audios are an average of 20 minutes in duration. It is advisable to use stereo headphones, but not required.
Hypnosis is not sleep and it is more effective to listen at a convenient time when you will not be likely to fall asleep. While deeper levels of hypnosis are sometimes mistaken as sleep, the difference is directly related to your suggestibility. The subconscious mind is aware during sleep (for instance, you hear someone say your name while asleep); however, you are not in the most ideal receptive state. Therefore, if you prefer to listen before going to bed at night, I advise listening at least once or from time to time during a time when you are not likely to fall asleep.
Please note: Everyone’s suggestibility and depth of trance varies. If you are highly irritable or anxious, on certain medications, or in a place where you are highly distracted the audios are less likely to be effective. It is always recommended to listen to the audios multiple times for best results. You are in effect reconditioning your pre-programmed beliefs, habits and behaviors which require repetition in most cases.
There are different techniques used on various audios. Some audios are designed to be listened to with stereo headphones. Those audios use a panning technique (voices in different ears at various points) and subliminal suggestions (low volume audio at various points – below the conscious mind volume threshold, but still audible by the subconscious mind so there is less resistance).
When you listen to audios that are less consciously audible, relax and allow without “trying” to hear. The technology is designed to reinforce subconscious programming without conscious resistance. But if you struggle to hear all of the words, you are not allowing yourself to enter the hypnotic brainwave state(s).
– Only listen to the audio in a quiet place where you will not be disturbed for about 20 minutes.
– Never listen when you are multitasking or driving. Make sure you can sit or lay down comfortably.
– Give yourself permission to relax. Do not struggle to relax. It is okay if you go between states of relaxation and feeling more alert. There is no wrong way to experience the session.
– Some people go into light stages of relaxation, others go into deep trace, either way is perfectly fine.
– You can listen as frequently as you’d like. It is okay to listen before bed. It is okay if you fall asleep to the audio.
