Target Your Thoughts
Set your Goals and hold them firm in your mind.
To Target your thoughts and make changes and improvements in your life, you have to focus on one thought pattern over and over again until your mind accepts this thought process without you having to direct your mind to these focused thoughts.

Most individuals correlate the words, “You are getting sleepy, very sleepy” in relation to being hypnotized along with the pendulum swinging watch. These images more depict a magic show illusion where the impression is given that people are non coherent of what is going on around them and are made to cluck like a chicken on queue.
Hypnotism is more of a deep state of relaxation which more resembles a state of meditation to target your thoughts on a particular behavior. You can pay anywhere from $100 to $300 per visit. The hypnotist will get to know you as a client, what your troubled issues are, and what you visualize as a successful outcome.
He or she will have you lay down, relax, close your eyes, or maybe focus on a stationary point and listen to their voice. They will make suggestions to you such as, “starting today you will focus on only positive thoughts… feelings of anxiety will lesson and the tension in your body will be released. During the session the hypnotist may suggest an action you can use to precipitate these feelings of relaxation when your mind is being pulled towards negative thoughts such as placing pressure between your thumb and forefinger.
At the end of your session the hypnotherapist depending on their preference may give you a tape recording of your session to take with you as a reinforcement to target your thoughts on your desirable response. To make any change in your life it takes a repetitive prompt to encourage a certain behavior to continue to reoccur until it is a natural and automatic response.
Using self hypnosis usually can produce the same results with a small fraction of the cost compared to a scheduled office visit. You can purchase a hypnosis download in hundreds of categories and then place this on tape or burn to a CD to use time after time until you meet your desired results and also reinforce these behaviors if you should need a boost in the future.
You can create your own library of a couple CD’s or dozens – there are countless to choose from and sometimes a boost of self-esteem, determination, willpower to lose weight or stop smoking can be a large help in our ups and downs of every day thoughts. You can also focus on things such as increasing your popularity, increase self motivation, control your emotions, ease anxiety attacks and hundreds more behavioral changes.
