I cannot describe how much of a difference it has made in helping me cope with difficult periods in life. -- Danielle, 2000

About the Author

David Illig resides in Portland Oregon where he divides his time between consulting in the legal world as a trial consultant and work in the area of self-improvement. His self-improvement products integrate mind/body/spirit approaches. He no longer does individual therapy after years of work in that area. His areas of specialty involved adult victims of child abuse, unconscious processes, medical psychology, mind-body interactions, habit change, marital and sexual issues, as well as general adult therapy.

SOME HISTORY:
Dr. David Illig, the author and voice of the SuccessWorld self hypnosis and subliminal programs has been a licensed Psychologist since 1979. His Ph.D. was awarded by Penn State University. Some of his earliest graduate studies involved how our thinking (self-talk) influences both our behavior and feelings.

Hypnotic Learning

As his work with clients developed, he began to realize that much of the thinking and images that influenced people were not actually in "conscious" awareness. These words, pictures, images, thinking, self-talk, rules, conclusions, memories, etc. etc., were actually operating out of conscious awareness. They were occurring at an "unconscious" level. Imagine that the human brain is like 100 operating computers. But only ten have screens so that you can see what they are doing and having an impact on.. But all of the computers are operating and sending output into the system. The computers without visible screens are strongly influencing people regardless of what is in awareness. Hypnosis was a means of observing and influencing what was occurring at both the conscious and unconscious level. That drew him to it as a viable tool.

Self-hypnosis was a means by which people could address their own inner minds. Thus began years of study into the various schools of hypnosis and study with a great number of master teachers. Milton Erickson, M.D., considered by many to be the most influential teacher in clinical hypnosis, was a very significant influence on his approach and view of hypnosis and hypnotic technique.

Dr. Erickson found that all humans are able to use hypnosis if the format is very flexible and adaptable to the individual. The concept of "indirect" hypnosis rather than directive or authoritative hypnosis makes hypnosis a viable tool for almost everyone. "Stage" hypnosis is usually a very direct method which, although exciting and interesting, only works for a small percentage of people. This is the "Look into my eyes you are getting sleepy" version.

Dr. Erickson found that metaphors and stories that send the human brain/mind off to search for solutions and approaches that work for that individual work much better. He became famous for his teaching stories that worked on many levels; the surface level and many levels of unconscious underneath.

Dr. Illig has used the teachings of Milton Erickson and many of his peers and colleagues to create hypnosis patterns that allow the listener's brain to both learn and search for new solutions, old solutions, healthy solutions. These are solutions that work for the individual in their own special way. We might not even know exactly what a person is doing that works, only that it works. The person themselves most likely won't know how their own unconscious is doing it. Only that it is.

The teaching stories and metaphors in the SuccessWorld tapes allow each listener's brain to find pathways to change without feeling like they are being ordered or commanded to do something. Direct orders are somewhat likely to bring out resistance rather than change. More "permissive" suggestions will be listened, considered, and more likely followed by the unconscious. "You may wonder how your brain accomplished that success..." will be more effective than: "You will do it this way..."

The SuccessWorld hypnosis tapes do give guidance to the brain/mind of the listener to seek out and use only healthy healing patterns and to let go of

Dr. Illig addresses self image and guides the listener to relases excess worries. He is careful to note that certain amouts or types of stress are useful and that the listerner is in control. I haven't finished the 30 day cycle but can say that I do envision contnuing with the CD. When I find myself stressed I do use the audio program and have started to examine current and past circumstances and am avoiding traps that have caused stress in the past.If you are stressed out while others around you are not try this cd.

This is a very useful tool for anyone who is under stress. If it is used regularly, you can train yourself to recognize the signs of stress and use the breathing techniques to relax and lower stress levels. I have used this program for several years and have found it to be very helpful.

I found this tape stashed away in a relatives closet, when we were cleaning. It was mixed with some other tapes made by Dr. David Illig, but it was well worn. She gave it to me, and I've been using it since. It works great! I was hoping to get another, because this one is so worn out, but its not being manufactured anymore. I hope it makes a comeback, along with some of the other tapes I would like to order from Dr. Illig.

I LIKE THE FACT THAT I FEEL RELAX EVEYTHING TIME I HEAR THE CD THAT I FALL AS SLEEP, BUT THE REALITY IS THAT IT DOESN'T HELP ME MUCH AS ADVERTISED. I HAD A BETTER SUBLIMINAL CASSETTE I WISH I CAN FIND IT TO RE-SELL THIS ONE ...
