If you’re reading this magazine, you’re probably already a believer in NLP and the power of hypnosis. Hypnosis has been scientifically proven to work in a number of studies, and with the power of YouTube behind you, now you can do it at home. The Best You picks some of the best online hypnosis videos.
“Your eyes are getting heavy and you are going into a deep trance.” Does this sound good to you? Do you feel your tensions slipping away? Using hypnosis as a relaxation technique is an idea that has been around for a while. Of course, some people are more susceptible to hypnosis than others, but your chances of achieving that state of deep relaxation also depends heavily on the skills of the person trying to put you under. There is more to the art of hypnosis than a soothing voice and a pendulating pocket watch.
Extra Deep Hypnosis 4
By Ultra Hypnosis
This video is designed to take the viewer into an exceptionally deep trance and make all future trances much deeper and easier to reach. They recommend watching this video lying down so you can relax all the way and not worry about falling out of your chair, which can be a real concern during hypnosis. The voice is incredibly soothing and the instruction could make the most tense of people relax.
Testimonial: “I’m an incredibly tense person and I’m entirely relaxed right now.” – Gabe Zomkev
8 Hours Sleep Hypnosis
By Jody Whiteley
Whereas many hypnosis videos and mp3s come in at the 30-minute mark, this hypnosis session by Jody Whitely, which is designed to treat depression, anxiety, confidence issues and promote emotional healing, comfortably hits theeight-hour mark, so you can listen to it while enjoying a night’s sleep. Whitely says that if you listen to this session nightly, you will start to feel less anxious and depressed, and some people claim it has even helped their OCD.
Testimonial: “I sleep better, wake up happier, and I am grateful for your kind sharing of your work.” – Debra Ramsay

By Michael Sealey

By Paul McKenna
In this double audio, Paul McKenna best-selling author and hypnotherapist, teaches you how to switch off completely and focus on the art of doing nothing. The first audio is an introduction to deep relaxation by McKenna, while things get more practical in the second audio as he lulls you into a state of semi-consciousness and urges you to close your eyes and get caught up in being deeply relaxed.
Testimonial: “The mp3 facilitated my journey into nirvana.” – Pete Pratt
Past Life Regression Hypnosis
By Trust and Truth
This one is for a narrower audience – only those who believe in reincarnation need click the link. That said, if you fancy doing it just to see what happens, go ahead. There are many stories from people who tried it not expecting anything and then saw themselves in their past lives. However, as with all hypnosis techniques, it is more likely to come to fruition if you believe that it will work, so let go of that cynicism.
Testimonial: “I really didn’t think anything was going to come to me, but some things did.” – Ashley Tree
By Andrea Schroeder
It’s no secret that positive thoughts bring positivity into your life. In this video, Andrea Schroeder prompts you to focus on the things you want out of life, the belief being that once the ideas are put into the universe, you will draw the reality to you. Many celebrities, such as Oprah Winfrey, Will Smith and Jim Carrey, use creative visualization and attribute much of their success to it.
Testimonial: “I haven’t felt this good in a long time. That was amazing. THANK YOU!” – Matt Ritchey
