And what is Subliminal Hypnosis, and how does it work?

Hypnosis - or self-hypnosis, which is the more correct term for what we use in our self help and mental training programs on this site - is simply a state of mental relaxation, where you are perfectly safe, and in complete control, at all times.
When in this relaxed state, positive suggestions can be made from a hypnotic audio recording or from a trained hypnotherapist, to help create positive changes in your life, by changing negative habits at the mind's control-center and creating positive new ones, which your mind and body can use as a new blueprint to follow.
As long as these positive suggestions agree with the person's own moral and ethical code - which is a major requirement in order for them to be effective - they are then eventually accepted by the mind and are allowed to help create positive new benefits to the person's life.
Unlike 'stage' hypnosis, and the way hypnosis is usually misrepresented in most Hollywood movies, hypnosis is not a trance-like or zombie-like state where you can be controlled by another person - which means you are in complete control of your own mind, body, thoughts and actions at all times. This also means you can choose to exit the hypnotic state at any stage if you decide to do so.
Hypnosis has been scientifically and clinically proven to provide a wide range of benefits and has been shown to assist in overcoming a wide variety of issues, while helping people to focus upon and achieve their personal goals.
How Does Hypnosis Work?
When you are under hypnosis you are simply mentally and physically relaxed - and fully aware of your environment at all times.
The relaxed state allows your mind to become more receptive to positive suggestions, which can then be received more easily and effectively in the deeper "subconscious" mind, to create positive change in your life. The subconscious is where all our inner life-programming is situated, so self-sabotage or problem issues can be changed at the very control center or source.
These positive hypnotic suggestions are best made only by a reputable audio hypnosis recording or during a hypnosis consultation by a qualified hypnotherapist. During this time, you are full able to decide at any time whether to follow any suggestions made while in this relaxed state, because you are in total control of your own mind and body at all time.
This relaxation can vary in depth from day to day depending upon how you feel and how tired you are - sometimes it will feel like very light relaxation, and other times it can feel deeper and more trance-like - but either way you are always in total control.
People often say things like "I could hear every word you were saying", or "I felt like I could open my eyes if I wanted to" - because you are aware of everything around you, just like when you meditate (which is very much like hypnosis).
There is also change in the brain wave activity, similar to the changes that occur just before sleep - when you move from the beta state (the awake state) to the alpha state (the lightly relaxed state) and sometimes, in hypnosis, to theta state (deeper level of relaxation).
How Safe Is Hypnosis?
Extremely safe! In fact, you are already in this state many times during your day, even without knowing it - such as when you first wake up in the morning, before you go to sleep, watching a good movie, listening to music, in the shower, and many other times.
So needless to say, you always have the option of getting up and leaving at absolutely any stage, just like if you were in the shower.
Contrary to many myths about hypnosis that come from Hollywood movies, hypnosis can never make you do anything against your will, or to divulge any information that you are not 100% willing to give out. You are always in complete control at all times.
* Needless to say, all our programs remind you never to use hypnosis recordings during activities requiring you to be alert - such as driving, operating machinery, etc.
Will I Always Wake Up?
Of course! 100%, absolutely, every time, without fail! You never, ever have to worry about this.
It is totally impossible to remain stuck in a relaxed state - just in the same way it be impossible to be stuck in a shower (which is a similar, comparable relaxed state) - you would naturally come out of the relaxed state every time, even in the unlikely event of a hypnotherapist walking out of the room or an electrical problem causing an audio recording to stop halfway through. In both cases, the person would wake up naturally by themselves, safely and easily.
Will It Work For Me?
Pretty much yes - every time. Results take different amounts of time for different people of course, as everyone is different, and the results can be either subtle or quite sudden - many people tend to notice the results most when they look back and suddenly realize just how far they have come!
For years I gave private consultations, but finally gave them away when I realized that providing recordings, which they could use repeatedly at home, were far more effective than 6-10 sessions of private hypnotherapy, because the most important ingredient is the constant regularity of the positive hypnotic suggestions.
Plus, as some people's addictions can occasionally relapse such as smoking, it is better for the client to simply re-use their own hypnosis recording, rather than need to start over with another set of expensive private sessions.
Can Hypnosis Make Positive Changes In My Health, Body, Stress Levels, Personal Development, Achieving Goals, and Improving Sports Performance?
Yes, absolutely - on all counts! Your subconscious mind is in charge of all these areas, and this is the area of the mind that hypnosis works with directly - working with the inner 'control panel' to bring about the outer, external changes - much the way software changes the way a computer program runs, or changes how the printout turns out.
What is Subliminal Hypnosis?
Subliminal hypnosis is where the hypnotic suggestions are placed at a sound level below the normal level your conscious mind can hear, so you will not hear anything but music when you listen to the subliminal - but your subconscious can hear the hypnotic suggestions quite easily, loud and clear.
This allows the positive hypnotic messages, otherwise know as hypnotic suggestions, to be more easily accepted by the subconscious, without the conscious mind mentally arguing with, and intercepting them.
We supply complementary additional complimentary (and optional-use only) subliminal recordings with many of our products - and these are used purely for night-time when you are going to sleep.
While you drift off to sleep to the sounds of the beautiful binaural relaxation music (designed to help deepen your relaxation), the subliminal hypnotic suggestions, which are hidden underneath the music soundtrack, are absorbed by your subconscious mind.
* The hypnotic messages / suggestions used on the subliminals are an exact file copy of those suggestions you clearly hear spoken on the main daily hypnosis recordings, and so there is 100% guarantee that there is no advertising or religious material contained in any of our recordings - which is actually required by law.
While these recordings are generally recommended only as an optional reinforcement for the main (daytime) hypnosis recordings, many people have had also excellent results with subliminal recordings alone.
So to clarify - all subliminal recordings have no spoken words, that you can (consciously) hear - and all you are meant to hear is the music, not the suggestions. This is how subliminals are designed to work - the hypnotic suggestions are purposely hidden below the music, so you are not meant to hear them - if you could, they would no longer be subliminal.
While your conscious mind is focused on the music, your subconscious mind actually absorbs the subliminal hypnotic suggestions - which only it can hear.
Humans ‘consciously’ hear only a tiny amount of information that the subconscious actually takes in (so we are not overloaded with informationand bombarded by the tiniest sounds.
While our (weaker) conscious mind can basically only focus on one piece of information at a time, the subconscious is much like a computer, and can absorb over 1 million bits of information per second, without a problem. This is why, at times, the less you ‘hear’ a suggestion, sometimes the more effective it can be - because it does not allow your conscious mind to ‘argue’ with it logically, and reject it.
The music keeps the conscious mind distracted and busy, while the second track is being absorbed by the subconscious without interruption. With our subliminals, you always know exactly what suggestions are used - as we used the exact file-copy of hypnotic suggestions that we use on the 'main' daily hypnosis recording, where you hear them clearly recited aloud.

How Deeply Relaxed Do I Need To Be?
Actually, not that deep at all. A common misconception is that a person needs to be in a deep trance-like state in order for the subconscious to accept the hypnotic suggestions, but this is not actually the case.
In fact, you are in a type of hypnotic state of relaxation at many different times during your normal day - such as in the shower, upon awakening in the morning, and before sleep at night, waiting at traffic lights in the car - and often even while watching television or listening to music.
With hypnotic recordings, you actually go to various different depths of relaxation each time you use them, depending upon various external factors such as the time of the day, stress levels, etc - sometimes the relaxations will be lighter, and sometimes they will be deeper - or often, in between.
While deeper levels can be a 'bonus', your mind still accept the hypnotic suggestions quite easily regardless of the level of relaxation you reach each time.
This is due to the fact that you use the recordings fairly regularly, and so your mind quickly understands exactly what content is on the recording, and will absorb the suggestions fairly effectively even from fairly light levels of relaxation. Deep levels of relaxation are not actually necessary to create powerful change with hypnosis.
The main aspect is the regular use of the hypnosis recording, more so than the depth of the actual relaxation - maintaining regular daily use allows the results to come through faster, and become stronger as time goes on.
Can I 'Mix and Match' the Use of Multiple Hypnosis Recordings?
Yes, you can mix and match these recordings quite easily, depending upon what you happen to need at the time - just ensure you get the mental training up and running initially by using the recordings regularly over the first few weeks. Your mind quickly becomes accustomed to the style of relaxation, and quickly adapts to whatever recording you are using at the time.
For instance, once you have been using the recordings regularly, you might like to use a sports program in the approaching week before a competition, the speaking program during the week before big speech, and the weight loss recording could be sprinkled throughout at various different times.
To get the utmost from your day in regard to the relaxation factor, it is probably a good idea to space them out by at least a couple of hours, but after that, there is no real restriction, as relaxation is perfectly safe.
They are particularly good to use at any times whenever you are feeling a bit tired or jaded, as they are strong energy rejuvenators which can bring your mind back to peak efficiency, and even allow your body to feel quite rested as well.
