The best time to work with Deep Trance Now hypnosis CDs is when you are in a relaxed, but alert state of mind – unless you are working with CDs for insomnia and your goal is to fall asleep.
Many Deep Trance Now hypnosis CD contain techniques which require your active mental participation. It is OK if you fall asleep while listening to hypnosis CDs, particularly if you are working with hypnosis CDs for insomnia, deep relaxation, or stress reduction – however, when working with hypnosis CDs that contain generic NLP techniques – like New History Generator – where it is up to you to decide what would you like to change in your life, you will get the best results if you are in a relaxed, but alert state of mind, so that you can follow the guidance.
It is normal for your mind to wander while listening to hypnosis CDs – even more so if you haven’t trained your mind in any way before. That’s fine. Even when you train your mind, your mind may still wander but it will be easier for you to keep it focused. And you may discover that the more you are interested in what you contemplate, the more focused your mind becomes.
It is normal for you to drift to sleep while listening to hypnosis CDs – even more so if you are used to falling asleep when entering deeper levels of the mind. Sometimes you may find yourself drifting into a dream-like state and returning to normal conscious awareness at the end of the recording. Other times you may just continue to sleep. Sometimes you may drift in and out of consciousness – hearing the words on the recording for a while and then losing awareness of them as you drift deeper inward, and that is fine.
If you are working with hypnosis CD that contains techniques which require your active mental participation, you may listen to the hypnosis CD while sitting up in a chair, or you may choose to listen to it earlier in the day when you are feeling more energised and less likely to fall asleep. You will discover what works best for you through your personal experimentation.
Some people get great results even if they do keep on falling asleep each time they work with hypnosis CDs. A part of your mind is always attending to what is going on around you even if you are deeply asleep, so a part of your mind will be hearing the suggestions even if you are deeply asleep.
