Self-hypnosis is a valuable tool for cancer patients that helps them take charge of the disease and makes the transition from being a victim to becoming a victor.
Self-hypnosis also helps in—
Reducing side effects of therapy
Mobilizing the immune system
Strengthening positive emotions
Enhancing the effectiveness of therapy
The results of self-hypnosis can be improved and deepened by using a combination of dynamic imagery and direct suggestions. Dynamic imagery works by having you imagine a transformation in an image that is a symbol of the change you want to make in your life.

The Four Steps in Self-Hypnosis
There are four stages to a self-hypnosis session using dynamic imagery:
1. The induction phase in which you relax and turn your attention inward while lowering awareness of what is going on around you.
2. The use of dynamic imagery. A dynamic image is a picture or situation that goes through a change. For example, speeding up the healing of a cut by imagining that there are tiny rubber bands pulling the edges of the cut skin together.
3. Suggestions. For instance, in working with a cut, you might say to yourself, “Any discomfort that I feel is calling healing white blood cells to the cut.” Or, “That stinging I feel is healing power.” Another suggestion could be, “The white blood cells do their work quickly and easily.”
4. Exiting self-hypnosis. This can be done by counting from five to one and opening your eyes or by just taking a deep breath and reorienting to the room.
Facts about Self-Hypnosis
Nearly everyone I talk to has heard stories about how hypnosis and self-hypnosis have really helped some people and how it has failed to make a difference for others. People want to know:
Can I go into self-hypnosis?
The amazing thing about self-hypnosis is that we do it all the time. Hypnosis and self-hypnosis are really just focused attention. Whenever you are concentrating on a task such as watching a TV show, reading a book or communicating on the Internet, you are focusing your attention and entering a light hypnotic state that increases the power of your mind. Self-hypnosis channels this power and concentrates it on changing the old programs that produce self-defeating behavior.
Am I going to be controlled?
This is both the hope and the fear of people who are interested in hypnosis but have never experienced it. People secretly want to be controlled and forced to change while at the same time they are afraid of what might happen if they really change. One big advantage of self-hypnosis and the use of self-hypnosis CDs is that you know you are fully in control. Any time you want to, you can stop and turn off the CD.
There are no hidden or subliminal suggestions on these CDs. What you hear is what you get. Research shows that subliminal suggestions have very little real value. By relaxing and letting positive images and suggestions flow into your unconscious mind, you begin the process of transformation. You really are in the driver’s seat.
What does self-hypnosis feel like?
Usually during a self-hypnosis session you will feel comfortable and relaxed. Sometimes you will enter a deeper state and experience a comfortable drifty feeling somewhat like daydreaming. Some people report that at times they felt like “my mind just went somewhere else for a while.” This is the experience of deep relaxation and letting the unconscious mind take charge. It is a special time during which your unconscious mind is reorganizing its understandings and developing new abilities. This may last for a few minutes or for just a second or two.
The depth of self-hypnosis doesn’t matter when it comes to therapeutic results. A light relaxed state is as effective as a deeper state. What makes a difference is the extent to which you are open to new understandings and abilities. When you just relax and let it happen, you have the most wonderful results.
