Visualization as Self-Hypnosis

One question I often hear is, “Can you use visualization as self-hypnosis?” The answer is yes and it’s a very powerful use of self-hypnosis. One of the most powerful.

Visualization and Self Hypnosis

Self-hypnosis is, of course, hypnosis but carried out alone, by yourself. Instead of sitting in a hypnotist’s office and receiving guidance from them, you simply talk yourself through the process with the same goal of changing the way you think about a particular idea

Unfortunately, it can be easy to disregard the suggestions you use with self-hypnosis. That’s because, in order for hypnosis to work, we must get ourselves to ‘believe’ the suggestions that we are being given. This can be tough, especially when we know that we were the one who wrote them down earlier that afternoon.

This is why using visualization as self-hypnosis can be much more effective than simply saying the words you write in your script to yourself.

How to Use Visualization as Self-Hypnosis

As with any form of hypnosis, you first need to get yourself into a suggestible state. This means relaxing your conscious mind enough to drop your guard. This will make it more likely you believe what you see and hear.

With visualization, the next stage involves imagining something vividly. You are trying to make it almost real. Instead of hearing words telling you that you are highly successful – you are attempting to see it in your mind’s eye. Here you are visualizing yourself as the person you want to be. You see yourself getting the reactions you want to get from others. You use the theater of your mind to see yourself achieving the things you want to achieve.

What makes this so powerful is that your brain can’t tell the difference between a highly vivid visualization and reality. As long as the visualization is convincing enough, on a neurological level, you will respond as though it were actually happening.

What does this mean?

It means your brain believes what you are visualizing is true, or at least can be true.

Other Uses of Visualization and Hypnosis

Very often visualization is used to help us see our own success. It gets us to really believe in our possibilities. Often high-performing athletes will talk about having ‘seen’ their success in advance. This is an example of the highly effective use of visualization.

Visualization can also be used for other things. For example, it is commonly used to feel calmer and to combat stress in the form of an imagined ‘happy place’. This is another very powerful tool. You can use your happy place as a refuge whenever you are struggling with anxiety.
