Hypnosis and self hypnosis is a feeling akin to the state you enter before falling asleep. It is a wonderful, pleasant, deeply relaxing sensation. During this state the doors between the CONSCIOUS (aware) mind and the SUBCONSCIOUS (automatic instinctive) mind are much easier to open.
All my hypnosis CDs and MP3's come with a guide and an introduction to hypnosis track on the CD itself.
Look in the menu for more information about hypnosis and hypnotherapy and its uses with related CD's.
