Hypnosis works by directly targeting the deeper parts of the brain. These are made up of the limbic system, the medulla oblongata, and the cerebellum. Together these are our more primitive brains and they make up the subconscious mind. The subconscious mind is much more powerful than the conscious mind. In fact eighty-five percent of all brain power comes from the subconscious mind. Amazingly most psychological therapies target the conscious mind which makes up only eight to fifteen percent of the brain’s power. This is what makes hypnosis so much more effective than regular talk therapy. This hypnosis CD to improve self-respect gives detailed suggestions to improve self-respect directly to the subconscious. If you have great self-respect then the tendency is that you will act in your own self-interest. This sounds selfish, but is not. The self-interest would not be in material benefits per se, but rather your cherished self-respect itself. To keep self-respect therefore a person would desire ethical pursuits or at least what they decided was ethical. This hypnosis CD gives no suggestions for any particular ethical principles and instead focuses on suggestions for self-respect as that individual views it. It is a powerful vehicle for change. This hypnosis CD to improve self-respect uses beach guided imagery with background music. This hypnosis script is by Jef Gazley, M.S., LMFT, who is a certified clinical hypnotherapist.
