How to Hypnotize Yourself with Your Eyes Open

Reading and Continued Professional Development

To qualify as a Clinical Hypno-Psychotherapist involved a lot of reading. For the most part I found the required reading for the course very interesting and it laid solid foundations for the work I was to do. To this day I consider reading to keep abreast of developments in my field as an essential part of what I do.

I am a member of Audible the audio book club and for less that GB£8.00 I receive one audio book every month to download and listen to on my trusty Sansa Disk MP3 player. I also purchase at least one book every month from Amazon and I buy at least 5 books from one of the best second hand book shops located about 5 minutes walk from where I live called Novel Experience.


Hypnotize Yourself as you read!

I have just finished a book called Instant Self-Hypnosis: How to Hypnotize Yourself with Eyes Open by Forbes Robbins Blair, and will be adding it to my list of highly recommended reading for people interested in Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy and Hypno-Psychotherapy.

If you don't have the money or time to visit a Hypnotherapist then this book which cost me less than £8.00 from Amazon is a foolproof method that will teach you how to hypnotize yourself with your eyes open.

The main reason why I purchased this book was because of the great reviews it received on Amazon. At the time I bought it, it had over 50, 5-star reviews and those people that did review the book went into great detail about what they got out of it.

I wasn't disappointed. It was money well spent and though I consider myself proficient in the art of self-hypnosis I found this method to be as effective, if not more effective than any method I have ever used to achieve the state of hypnosis.

The Author Forbes Robbins Blair

The book is written by Forbes Robbins Blair a Certified Professional Clinical Hypnotherapist and Dream Consultant. As I work in both these areas and have done so for some time now I recognise that this man knows what he is talking about and he puts it in such a way that anyone who can read will be able to follow and implement his very simple approach to Self-hypnosis.

He also takes the trouble to explain how the mind works and he demystifies, the all too easily misunderstood, subject of hypnosis.


The book is not a panacea for all your problems

I don't recommend this book as a substitute for Hypno-Psychotherapy for the treatment of deep rooted emotional problems but for learning how to suspend the critical factor in order to access the subconscious mind to achieve deep relaxation and the replacement of unwanted habits and behaviours this book is second to none.


Book Contents

The book comes in three parts.

Part 1 consists of 4 chapters explaining hypnosis and the background to the method.

Part 2 consists of a series of scripts which when read aloud lead you into a state of deep relaxation in order to achieve a specific goal.

Part 3 consists of learning how to hypnotize yourself while you write and further bonus material to enhance your experience.

Following is a list of the scripts included in Part 2 of the book:

Introduction to Hypnosis by Spirit Whisperer

To save my clients time and money I provide a high quality audio which I specifically made to teach any one the art of self hypnosis. Before clients start therapy with me they can learn the art of self hypnosis in the privacy of their own homes by downloading my audio from my website

Setanta Hypnotherapy Clinic Downloads Page

By listening to the audio every day for a week to 10 days the client is proficient in achieving the levels of relaxation necessary to start therapy.

If you wish to learn how to achieve the state of hypnosis by yourself then this audio would suit you.

If you do use the audio please make sure to leave a comment to say how effective it was for you.

Thank you.

Thank you.

Thank you CP I am glad you found it informative. Hypnotherapy is very much a right brain activity. Reading about it is a left brain activity. In this article I show how a left brain activity can be turned into a right brain activity. Reading the menu is never going to give you the taste of the food so Jump in and enjoy the feast!

I can attest to your CD! I recognize the music in the video Doc:) It is unbelievable how easy it is to understand and use. I could not believe that the first time I listened I really felt the relaxing effects! Amazing! I can't tell all here as I am still practicing and would like to write a hub about the notes I've been taking as I learn. Ill let you know when I publish!

I also love that you practice dream consultation and you know I believe that a professional should help you work through them so you don't get confused about what they really mean or do not mean!

I love the idea of self -hypnosis with open eyes because most other guides ask you to imagine yourself in one or another place and I just cannot visualise anything. I keep trying but nothing happens and I do not get the promissed result at the end.
