Hypnosis CDs contain 2 parts:
1. an induction – to help you to get into an optimal state of mind for programming your subconscious mind, and
2. a guided visualisation with techniques and suggestions related to overcoming specific challenges and helping you to reach your goals faster.
The purpose of hypnosis induction is to bypass the critical faculty of your conscious mind and help you to drift into a state of mind where you are free of limitations and where you can experience anything you desire.
The purpose of guided visualisation is to help you to immerse yourself in your desired subjective experience and thus program your subconscious mind.
Hypnosis CDs may contain techniques from Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) and the variety of esoteric traditions. These techniques are in essence mind-tricks designed to help you overcome inner obstacles and reach your goals faster. Some of these techniques are thousands of years old and have been taught in secret to small groups of people who were trained in the use of mind power, while others are based on modern breakthrough discoveries related to human neurology and workings of the brain.
Hypnosis CDs may also contain hypnotic language patterns, which may or may not make sense to your conscious mind. Many skilled communicators use hypnotic language patterns in their daily life, and the use of hypnotic language patterns is sometimes referred to as indirect hypnosis, conversational hypnosis, or
Ericksonian hypnosis – after Dr Milton Erickson. The purpose of hypnotic language patterns is to bypass the critical faculty of your conscious mind and exert influence upon your subconscious mind.
