This is from Steve Jones about learning self-hynosis and the five stages of hypnotism. I work with him on other things and he can create a customized CD/MP3 if you need them.

Learning the Art of Hypnosis

The long mystery surrounding hypnosis is revealed as more and more people are discovering that self-hypnosis is possible. There are specific steps one can take to create and record a program that brings about self hypnosis and real and lasting changes in their lives.

In order to hypnotize ones self or others a complete state of relaxation must occur. This is referred to as the alpha state of consciousness. When you are fully awake, aware and focused on your surroundings you are in a beta state of consciousness. The alpha state, which is the beginning to hypnosis, is similar to being completely relaxed and comfortable such as when drifting off to sleep. However, this is also the state you are in when you are fully engrossed in a book, computer game or even while driving a familiar route. Contrary to what many people believe, those under hypnosis are still aware of their surroundings. People who have claimed that they have never been able to become hypnotized may not realize that you don?t have to be mesmerized in order to have been effectively hypnotized.

When creating a self hypnosis program to change a behavior 5 basis steps occur. In the first step, known as induction, the hypnotized person is brought to a relaxed state. Secondly, there is a deepening of the relaxation that can still be an awakened state or an even deeper state of relaxation bordering on sleep. In the third stage, scripts or dialogs are introduced that suggest behavioral changes. Fourth, is the state designed to keep the hypnotized person from over analyzing what they just heard in the script stage. It is often called the amnesia stage. Finally, the trance is terminated either by becoming more awake or being allowed to go into deep sleep.
