Excerpt from the Introduction

If you are like many people, you've heard how hypnosis has helped others achieve their goals. You've even thought about different ways you might use hypnosis to change your own life for the better.

Maybe you'd like to be hypnotized to improve your physical body to get lean and trim, stay motivated to exercise, or to stop smoking once and for all.

Or maybe you're feeling stress in your life. You'd like to be hypnotized to let go of that tension and to feel more relaxed? Who wouldn't?

Perhaps you'd improve your mental abilities through hypnosis. Have you imagined how your life might change if you possessed Zen-like focus and concentration? Have you wished for a sharper memory? To ace that test coming up? Or maybe just to remember the names of people you meet?

Perhaps you've wondered if hypnosis could help you be more loving toward your mate or to spruce up your sex life?

So Why Aren't You Going to a Professional Hypnotist?

Again, if you are like many people, thinking about ways hypnotherapy might help you is as far as you've gone. Or you've gone once or twice to a hypnotist but you just didn't continue. The reasons people don't go to a hypnotist are often these:

- You don't have the time to go to the hypnotist's office.
- You don't have-or don't want-to spend the money.
- You're too timid. Is hypnosis safe? Are your issues just too personal to discuss with a hypnotist...or anyone?

Now You Don't Need to Go to a Professional
The good news is, now that you have this book, you don't need to go to a professional hypnotist. Just sit right there and read! Instant Self-Hypnosis enables you to hypnotize yourself to accomplish virtually any goals without ever putting down the book. The book does the work for you!

Even more startling, you will learn to hypnotize yourself with your eyes open! Unlike other forms of hypnosis, with Instant Self-Hypnosis there's no reason to close your eyes throughout the entire procedure.

The best part of all is that the can't-fail methods of Instant Self-Hypnosis are so easy to use. You'll succeed the very first time you try them. The procedures are so efficient, applying them to a goal takes as little as fifteen minutes.

Please do not confuse Instant Self-Hypnosis with any other books or audio programs about hypnosis or self-hypnosis. It's unlike anything you've read, heard about, or tried. It's a revolutionary book offering you an extraordinary technique with distinct advantages over traditional methods of self-help hypnosis. This user-friendly book can change your life in practical ways, and you'll be able to put it to work for you in just minutes...if you keep reading.

Get ready to learn about an innovative discovery in self-improvement-Instant Self-Hypnosis.

This book is about a breakthrough discovery in hypnosis and self-improvement. In 1997 I discovered an unusual method for inducing hypnosis. As a professional hypnotherapist, I've been teaching, testing, and refining it ever since. I call the technique Instant Self-Hypnosis. It involves the reading and writing of hypnosis scripts as a means of entering a state of hypnosis. This method of hypnosis may be used for a wide range of therapeutic purposes: removing bad habits, confidence building, goal attainment, and so much more. This can't-fail technique requires no experience or knowledge of hypnosis whatsoever. Plus, it's so simple that you may marvel that no one previously thought of it...or if they did think of it, why they never published the discovery. Or if they did publish it, how come no one knows about it?

Instant Self-Hypnosis is ingenious in its efficacy and simplicity. I call Instant Self-Hypnosis a discovery rather than an invention because the method has been "hidden in plain sight" perhaps for as long as hypnotherapy has been in existence. What I've done is recognize its potential value and develop it in such a way any intelligent person can put to good use.

Why is Instant Self-Hypnosis not your average self-improvement book? This publication does something that most self-help books cannot do. Most self-help authors give advice or enumerate steps to be followed after you've read their books. That is, only when you put those books down can you begin to put their advice into practice. But with Instant Self-Hypnosis, there is no delay.

You benefit fully from this book without ever putting it aside. It's designed to change you as you read it! With this innovation in self-improvement, there are no words of wisdom to remember. There are no skills to practice. There are no traits or steps of "highly perfect people" to emulate! This book and its techniques are self-contained. The help is immediate. The results materialize automatically.

This book is for anyone who wants-or needs-a potent, valuable tool for positive personal change. If you are new to hypnosis or self-help media, Instant Self-Hypnosis gives you a fast and easy means for improving the quality of your life in many areas. If you are an avid consumer of do-it-yourself material, you will find Instant Self-Hypnosis a friendly alternative to some of the other techniques you might have tried. If you are a professional hypnotherapist or a psychologist, you will be intrigued by the powerful simplicity of Instant Self-Hypnosis. Its operative principles have many implications and applications for the fields of hypnotherapy, psychology, and psychoimmunology.
The Things You Will Learn

The heart of this book revolves around the hands-on learning of Instant Self-Hypnosis. The book takes you through a fun exercise that not only introduces you to the concepts of Instant Self-Hypnosis but actually hypnotizes you as you perform it! The exercise acts as a proactive primer to ensure success with all subsequent endeavors with Instant Self-Hypnosis. After that, you'll apply the method to your goals, using the appropriate scripts.
As mentioned, you don't have to know a thing about hypnosis to put Instant Self-Hypnosis to work for you. But some basic knowledge is certainly a good thing to possess in any endeavor you undertake. Part One of the book tells you what you need to know about the power of your subconscious mind and how it relates to hypnosis. You'll also learn about these things:

- what hypnosis and self-hypnosis are and whether you are hypnotizable;
- the misconceptions and ill-founded fears some people have about hypnosis and how safe it truly is;
- how hypnosis and traditional self-hypnosis work and the problems associated with conventional methods;
- my discovery: what it is, how it works, and how it automatically avoids the troubling pitfalls associated with traditional techniques; and
- a powerful hypnotic primer, which lets you experience its power and simplicity firsthand!

In Part Two, you'll be shown how to put the technique to work for thirty-five common hypnosis goals, using professionally prepared hypnosis scripts. In Part Three, you'll learn another aspect of Instant Self-Hypnosis that shows you how to customize the technique for virtually any self-improvement goal, no matter how unique it may be. I have taught this customization process for several years in a course called "How to Hypnotize Yourself with Your Eyes Open," and students have found it easy to master.

The book wraps up with some important tips to ensure success with Instant Self-Hypnosis. Additionally, it clarifies answers to some frequently asked questions regarding the techniques and their proper application. And don't forget to check out the Bonus sections toward the end of the book. For instance, you may want to take the Instant Self-Hypnosis Stress-Buster Challenge.

More About the Author

Who on Earth is Forbes Robbins Blair?

Speaking of my professional life, I have been an avid practitioner and student of hypnosis, self hypnosis, the Law of Attraction, and metaphysics since 1997. That's when I realized the quality of life is largely determined by our communication with the three aspects of the self: the conscious mind, the subconscious, and the High Self. I hope all my books improve that communication.

During the first few weeks into my professional hypnosis therapy career, I stumbled onto a way to hypnotize myself with my eyes open while reading out loud. After much study and further testing, I developed it into a reliable method which became my first book, Instant Self-Hypnosis: How to Hypnotize Yourself with Your Eyes Open.

I love to encourage a positive approach to living, and help my readers get the results they desire.

- Forbes :)

I didn't title this review lightly to suggest: "This book changes your life". It truly does. Please recall a great movie you saw in the theater, and remember how you felt good, uplifted and excited afterwards. The movie produced that ecstatic feeling. What if you could feel the sameway all the time, and get two birds with a one stone by simultaneously fulfilling your dreams, improving your own life and becoming the person that you always wanted to be? Well, ultimately you will walk the talk.

When a friend suggested I purhcase this book; I felt sceptical. Thought there is nothing new under the sun - after all, I considered myself somewhat all-done dynamo when it concerns self-help literature. When the book arrived, I thought this is speaking of and refering to same things I am doing with creative visualization - so would it bring any benefits?

It proves out I was so mistaken. The book is more than I expected....and keeps bringing greater benefits into my life. The author's contemporary writing style feels like a friend who is visiting you, and talking to you in person.

It does not matter whether you are a professional or a beginner, this book is for everyone. And yes, you can hypnotize yourself for success, happiness and all good things with its guidance. And with eyes open there are several advantages. First of all, it is easy to stay focused. You are reading and imagining at the same time, so your mind does not wander around as much as with traditional creative visualization. Also, the author is a pro hypnotist and has carefully designed the techniques, for maximum effectiveness.

Let me tell you of my first experience with the method. After I had finished reading the introduction part, I followed the instructions for the first session.

Format: Paperback
If you are like me, you probably have had many preconceptions about hypnosis. In reality, we all access this state of consciousness frequently, for example, at a scary movie if you find yourself squirming in your seat while watching the movie you are probably in this state.

As you read this book, you realise that hypnosis really is the ability to use the power of your imagination, while minimising the interference of your conscious mind, to effect permanent and positive benefits in your mind and body, and to break free of those behaviors that do not serve you.

You are learning the skill of communicating with yourself on a deeper level.

This book is organised in a very easy to use manner. There are scripts for 35 different situations ranging from stress to procrastination, better sex, smoking, problem solving etc.

For example, if you were to use the rapid healing script, you read the induction which involves you going down in an elevator, and gradually feeling more and more relaxed till you get to the bottom, then if you wish you may use the deepening script to get into an even deeper state. Then you read out loud the script itself. I noticed that a cut I had, started healing much faster after I read this script. Then, as you practice it more and more, it gets easier to do and you can really feel the effects.

When I read the induction out loud, it worked very well. Then as I used the deepening script I went into the deepest state I believe I have ever consciously experienced. Amazing. There really is amazing power to this technique.

Naturally, you do need to practice this for a while before the changes become permanent.

199 of 216 people found the following review helpful By Laura De Giorgio TOP 1000 REVIEWER on October 29, 2004
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is essentially a script book for self-hypnosis. At the beginning of the book is a general induction you can use to induce yourself into a trance state, followed by a selection of 35 scripts for dealing with common issues and helping you to improve your life. You'll find scipts for weight-loss, confidence, motivation, public speaking, lucid dreaming, better sex life and many others.

The book is marketed as using hypnosis while you're awake. This may seem to make it different from other hypnosis books, unless you understand that you are using hypnosis every time you use your imagination and get absorbed by your inner experience - and for that matter any time you read any book that transports you into another world, the world described in that book and you become oblivious to your environment to a certain degree, you are in hypnosis - much like you are in hypnosis when you are absorbed in the action of the movie you are watching on TV. The only difference is that with TV you get to watch the images, and while reading the book, you create them in your mind, according to your interpretation of the words.

You can use the scripts in this book either by reading them, but you can also record them on a tape and just relax and listen to them. You should use whatever method helps you to engage your imagination better and create a more vivid subjective experience.

This book was created for non-hypnotists - however even a professional hypnotist, particularly those who are new to hypnosis, may use this book as an additional resource - just as they would use any other script (patter) book.

Near the end of the book is a section on hypnotizing yourself while you write.
