Audio hypnosis is a practice wherein messages are recorded by a therapist with the aim of placing suggestions in the mind of the patient. The messages will vary depending on the goal of the patient. When recording messages for audio hypnosis, a trained hypnotherapist or hypnotist will read what is called a hypnotism script. This script is written with a particular goal in mind. The patient then has to listen to this recorded audio in a relaxed environment.
Audio hypnosis can be used for a variety of things. The main idea, however, is to train the mind in order to reach a particular goal. For example, if a person wants to quit smoking but is finding it hard to do so, audio hypnosis can be used to instill messages in one’s mind. The same thing applies to other bad habits that a patient may want to get rid of. Another example would be a person who is having problems sleeping. Perhaps his insomnia may be due to too much stress or a problem that he has been focusing on. Audio hypnosis can be used to induce relaxation, which can in turn, lead to sleep.
In audio hypnosis, the patient is required to be awake, although many people prefer to close their eyes in an effort to reach a more relaxed state. Audio hypnosis is all about training and discipling one’s mind and not giving control of one’s mind to another person. It is a helpful practice even if only for relaxation purposes.
