How to Hypnotize Your Mind for Success?

The Swiss psychiatrist, Carl Jung said, "Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate."

You can achieve anything and everything in your life if you know what you want. When you can program your mind towards achievement then everything is possible in this world. Hypnotism is one of the means by which you can program your mind for success. It breaks some of the bad habits, phobias and practices that become the stumbling block towards your success. Hypnotism is all about getting your subconscious mind accept and agree to the changes you would like to make.

The word hypnotism is not new to the world. It is being practiced since many years but in different forms. It was basically used to treat illness. Franz Anton Mesmer who was an Austrian physician is considered the father of hypnosis.

When people hear about hypnotism they are scared as there are several myths and misconceptions associated with this practice. But before we look into it, let us know what the hypnotism means.

The words 'hypnosis' and 'hypnotism' both derive from the term "neuro-hypnotism" (nervous sleep) coined by the Scottish physician and surgeon James Braid around 1841 to distinguish his theory and practice from those developed by Franz Anton Mesmer and his followers ("Mesmerism" or "animal magnetism") {Wikipedia}.

“The word hypnosis is derived from the Greek word hypnos, meaning sleep.... hypnotism is a means of bringing on an artificial state of sleep to the participant ...more accurately described as a state of reduced consciousness while one is a awake { www.letusreason.org }.

Hypnosis is a mental state where in inputs are given to program mind. It is a mental state where the mind is receptive to instructions. At this stage, the mind is highly focused with concentration and yet relaxed. It is usually misunderstood as a sleeping state. It is done by an expert who is known as hypnotist on a subject.

Everyone undergoes for a state of hypnosis everyday but we do not know the same. For instance, we listen to music while going by car or when we go for a long drive, we engross into hypnosis. In fact, we all enjoy hypnosis state one way or the other.

• The myth is that the hypnotist can do anything against the subject during the exercise. The truth is that nothing can be done against the will and wishes of the subject.

Story of an Elephant:

When a baby elephant was tied with a thick rope, it tried its best to break the rope. Subsequently, the thick rope was replaced by a thin rope and the baby elephant tried again to unshackle. It tried, but in vain, thinking that it was a thick rope and it could not break the rope. As the baby elephant grew big it was tied with the same thin rope. It could have easily broken it but failed to break it because of its previous failed experiments and experiences. Our minds are also programmed with several such failures and we think that it is not possible as we are conditioned like that. In is here, hypnotism helps to break such habits of failure thereby infusing fresh confidence and optimism towards life and success.

How to Hypnotize?

You must know fully about the subject thoroughly on whom it is to be practiced. Once it is known then it is easy to use the information and instructions properly to make the process effective. Ask the subject to lie down, allow him/her to relax. Ask him/her to close his/her eyes then encourage the subject to take a few deep breaths. The objective of this entire exercise is to clear the clutter from the mind of the subject for desired outcome. Later on, use the tools and techniques depending upon the requirements of the hypnotism. For instance, if you want to enhance the memory of the subject then use the relevant techniques for the same. Similarly, if the subject has certain phobias then use appropriate techniques accordingly. The procedure is same but the instructions depend on the type of problem to be addressed. The hypnotist must be an expert to avoid any negative fallout.

There should not be any disturbances during hypnotism as it can break concentration. Sounds arising out of phone, telephone, radio beeper or any other things should be avoided. The place of hypnotism should be totally serene for desired results.


Hypnotism as a tool, if used; properly you can get desired results. It is a proven technique where you can make use of it for achieving success in your life. Once you learn the tricks of the trade then you can try on yourself as well as on others. Lot of practice is needed in this regard. Finally, you need to have right attitude towards hypnotism to leverage benefits for all-round progress, growth and success.
