You can allow yourself to enter a state of Hypnosis
That will help you achieve the therapeutic outcomes we discussed
Begin by paying attention to your toes, tense and release them
Enjoy how you can let them feel comfortable
Move your attention to all of your foot
The delicate bones, the skin, the muscles, and let them all feel very good
Take your time, you are doing well
Let your imagination become even more absorbed in your doing something good for yourself.
As you do so, you not only relax but move into a therapeutic state of Hypnosis.
Let all your muscles relax, relax them completely,
Moving up from your feet to your legs
Let the muscles be loose and limp. Relax them all
Now your thighs, and your hips. Let them relax.
Your Stomach and abdominal muscles, now can relax too.
Let those muscle relax.
Your Shoulders, your arms, and your hands. Relax them.
Now your neck. Let it relax. Do not mind if your head bows forward or to the side.
It will be perfectly comfortable.
Your facial muscles can relax, and particularly the eye muscles and the lids.
Relax now, completely.
Every muscle in your body will relax, and
As you become more relaxed you become even more absorbed in the experience of Hypnosis.
