Self-hypnosis audio downloads workHow self-hypnosis audio downloads work is a bit of a mystery to most people who are searching for helpful solutions to problems in their lives.

For those who have heard of self-hypnosis # techniques, they may think that when they go to a hypnotist, he or she is going to have them close their eyes, snap their fingers and cure them of their issues.

And for 98% of the population, most believe that it is the hypnotist that causes the client to go into hypnosis and not realize that it’s actually the opposite.

What I mean by that is… all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.

You allow yourself to enter into the state of hypnosis. The hypnotist simple guides you there with certain hypnotic words, phrases and stories that help your conscious mind go to “sleep”.

And this “sleep” is exactly what you experience every night when you go to bed.


Stages of Self Hypnosis

During our 24-hour day cycle, we go through four stages of consciousness, Beta, Alpha, Theta, and Delta.

I will go into more detail about consciousness states in a future article, but for now, just remember that Beta is wide awake, Alpha is relaxed, Theta is deeply relaxed (meditative) and Delta is a deep sleep.

All of these states are hypnotic states to certain degrees with Beta being the least hypnotic, Delta is the deepest and Alpha and Theta being the most effective states that get the best self-hypnosis results.

SIDENOTE: I’m sure many hypnotherapists will debate this explanation, but I digress, lol.

Regardless, every time you go to “sleep”, you are constantly shifting thru at least 3 to 4 states of hypnosis consciousness which is why self-hypnosis audio downloads work so well and I’ll explain that in a minute, but first…

You have 3 minds, your conscious mind, your subconscious mind and finally, your super-conscious mind which we’re not going to get into here.

We’re just going to focus on the first two for now.
The conscious and the subconscious.

Your subconscious mind runs all the programs that keep you breathing, keep your blood pumping, keep your heart beating and so much more.

Your conscious mind, on the other hand, is the “decision” mind… or at least it likes to think so, lol.

So think of these two minds like this…

Your subconscious mind is like a computer. It creates programs from memories and experiences and then stores those programs so thoughts, feelings, decisions, and actions are readily available and become automatic for you.

Your conscious mind is like the person at the keyboard of the computer. It makes the decisions about what makes sense and what actions to take around those decisions.

Unfortunately, this is where the problems start!


If your subconscious has stored “bad” programs, your conscious mind will make decisions and take actions based on those bad programs no matter what good intentions you may try to have.

For instance, imagine your driving around and your hungry.

Consciously, you’re trying to lose weight and you know you should go home and eat healthy food BUT your subconscious mind has been programmed to believe that fast food is a quick and convenient solution to hunger.  And what happens?

Somehow, you find yourself pulling into MickeyD’s and ordering a 1500 calorie meal instead of going home and making a salad.

So, what does this have to do with how self-hypnosis audio downloads work?


You see, since you spend at least six to eight hours every day in hypnosis (“sleep”), why not use that time to remove those bad programs and replace them with  self-hypnosis programs that serve you?

When you “Sleep”, your conscious mind shuts off, tunes out or takes a break. Your subconscious mind, on the other hand, is always “on” and is wide open to accept suggestions for transformation.

For example, with a weight loss hypnosis audio program, the self hypnosis program might have suggestions to replace old ideas of “eat anything when hungry” to “I only eat healthy food always”.

To release stress with self-hypnosis, the audio download might replace subconscious thoughts of “what if” to “I now remain relaxed and present”.

So whatever self-hypnosis audio download program you use, the suggestions for transformation will make new thought/synaptic connections within your brain and you will be literally rewiring yourself to create new thoughts which lead to new decisions which lead to new actions, which lead to new results.

And the easiest part is, you’ll do it all in your “sleep”!
