Whenever you choose to relax and enter a light state of hypnosis, you can convey suggestions or affirmations directly to the subconscious mind. An example of an affirmations is ass follows:
“Whenever I choose to count down from eight to one…zero, I will enter this level of relaxation and immediately go ten times deeper. From now on water is my favourite thirst quenrages by half. I will reduce my consumption of all other beverages by half, I desire this and it is so”.
Then next from hypnosis by counting from one to five. You could be more specific as to the quantity and type of beverage you desire to drink daily. Whenever possible, affirmations require mental statements of fact. If the statement indicates immediacy as illustrated above or is expressed in the present tense, it is understood clearly and accepted at all levels of given if this is unavoidable.
At the executive levels of consciousness, statements like ‘I will try to stop smoking today’ are seen for what they are. ‘I will try’ telegraphs awareness of opposition and the anticipation of possible failure.
Even at the conscious level, when it is pointed out, we can clearly see the difference in self-assurance between ‘I will try to stop smoking’ and ‘as of now. I am a non-smoker’. And whenever you make an affirmation, remember that this is the captain speaking.
The affirmation, coupled with the receptive state of mind, is all that is required to decrease your reliance on chemical and other temporary stimulants. This dose not mean that you can not choose to drink alcohol or tea and coffee from time to time, but two things happen. You are released from attachment to stimulants and you become fully conscious of what you trade for over-indulgence. You trade much more that you think.
If you wish to break an addiction to stimulants of any kind, you will require to prepare an affirmation specifying a daily reduction in intake and add.
“all bodily cells, glands, nerves and other function are now resuming full normal operations to compensate for the reduction in intake of unnatural stimulants and to restore all system to full health and vitality.”
This statement is required to ensure that the subconscious controls are not only reset to reduce desire for the stimulants, but that the production of natural pain-killing and immunization fluids is restored to avoid withdrawal symptom. Alcohol and other dugs and stimulants interfere with the natural body chemistry, exposing the subject to health problems which would normally be easily avoided. The unnatural chemicals can create an imbalance in the delicate cellular structures which, in turn, results in ill-health and disease.
Minor mental barriers are occasionally encountered with people who place a negative interpretation on counting with to zero, the negative reaction to descending may stem from the misconception that heaven and hell are geographical locations rather than states of mind. Counting down leads to a state of completion, where there is nothing logically left for group subconscious aspect of mind comfortably relates to the ancient significance of the symbol ‘0’ as an indication of the absence of from and mass, denoting absolute freedom from all limitations, as with the ‘lazy eight’ symbol for infinity, it is a means of overriding our verbal limitations in expressing the inexpressible.
